Re: Starlingford - Birthday & The Stash, pg 109

Ooooh that Ivatt is a real beauty! I've always loved the look of the Ivatt's; simple rugged design... she will look the part alongside the rest of your midland stock.

Cheers

Re: Starlingford - Birthday & The Stash, pg 109

Hi Gavin, Happy new year and happy belated birthday (sorry I missed em)! It looks like you have done rather well for goodies and the latest round of photographs of Starlingford look rather splendid. It's good to see you playing around with photograph wizardry, and you have rather nicely displayed th...

Re: The Bridge (The Y&CR) -has got the minerals; wagons that is!

Geoff you are a legend! :shock: I had an email at work, and I must say rather embarrassingly I didn't know it was you to begin with that made that donation. I was thinking "eh!? must be someone my brother knows". :oops: I suppose you can sometimes have the problem as thinking of people as ...

Re: NSE days old oak now with steam.

Oh my! I haven't had a look at old oak over the last month, but I must say that you have made some rather fine progress on it. The ballasting and greenery that you have added looks simply fantastic! :D I've always thought that old oak would look top notch with a bit of boulders around the sleepers a...

Re: Old Warren TMD - Interim future is now secured

Hi Chris, Sorry it's been a while; but I must say that I'm pleased to hear that things are looking up your end. It's always good to see updates here and those steel wagons look the business. The signals look great and the motorway embankment is coming along nicely too. Those trees do look rather spl...

Re: The Bridge (The Y&CR) - Pigs will fly!

Hi all, and allow me to say happy near year (as this is my first post of 2012)! Just a quick update here to say hello and that I am still around. Alas there were no updates over December, due to being busy at work (I'm sure that those who work retail can sympathise). Thankfully we are now in quiet J...

Re: More new build projects.

Thinking along the lines of what I would do if I was a Euromillions winner, I would be tempted to bring A4 60010 Dominon of Canada back to the UK where it would be restored back to working order and run steam rail tours with it!

Cheers,

Stuart

Re: The Bridge (The Y&CR) - Pigs will fly!

Oooh very pretty. :o Thanks for uploading that image! Contrary to anyone's ideas I hadn't planned on buying the preserved model. I was actually after a double chimney version but they were out of stock, and they happened to have the older model of 43106 reduced; I just happened to pick it up. Still ...

Re: The Bridge (The Y&CR) - Pigs will fly!

Cheers chaps, I do agree the Mucky Duck is a beautiful loco. All those that think it's ugly need their eyes examined! :twisted: And I must say, very astute of you young Ben. As you said that you aren't a rivet counter and wouldn't bring that up, but still you couldn't resist the urge could you? :win...

Re: The Bridge (The Y&CR) - Burst hot water tanks... oh dear!

Right... Update time! First bit of news on the wiring. I've had a few issues with the signalling on the layout. If you remember I still have to install a platform starter signal for the inside track, and I also plan to install a shunt signal. Now during a spell of tidying the loft (me thinking every...

Oh dear... yes a crash would be rather improbable on DC. Intriguing!

Re: Castle Cross - Piccie update (P63)

Nice work Ben, the weathering on those wagons looks reet mucky. Poor old 70000, that looks needs a good looking after.

Re: NSE days old oak its future in doubt

Ah yes that would be one of the drawbacks of DCC... head on collisions! Hopefully the damage wasn't too bad. Those are some great dusk shots, especially the shots of the turntable showing off a rather enviable collection of fine locomotives.

Cheers,

Re: Ffrwd Locks. OO WR in North Wales (Wrexham) Autumn 1953

What a pleasant surprise to see this lovely little layout again. I think it was also one of the first layouts that gave my inspiration for my own layout. :D

Cheers,

Stuart
