Re: locomotion on bbc 2

I agree Poliss. That was a very good programme. My wife worked on" spitfire women" and one about the desert rats made a few years ago. She had to go to Stuttgart to attend an Africa Corps reunion which Rommels son attended.

Re: locomotion on bbc 2

I saw the Dan Snow programme last night too. I thought it was a typically modern piece of BBC output. Too much whizzing about in helicopters and showing Dan Snow behaving all macho. He is only there to entice the ladies to watch. What we all have to remember is that we have a genuine interest in our...

Re: Stockton Road TMD

A man after my own heart. Great big plans regarding the loft, baseboards put up, track laid, make it up as you go along. And then.......winter came. I am now building a 7 x 2 plus a small fiddle yard which is being done in the back bedroom and leaned against the wall at night. I am really enjoying i...

Re: Hornby prices.

I agree to an extent Lysander but the one thing about continental manufacturers, especially the German ones, is the Quality which although expensive are far superior to ours quality wise. The ones I have seen are anyway with their mostly metal bodies. Mind you they should be for that price! regards ...

Hornby prices.

Is it just me or are the latest releases from Hornby expensive? Nearly £160 for a DCC fitted loco or £10 less for a DCC ready model. I know the model shops will discount them but I for one can't afford prices like that. No wonder they have problems. I see on the same newsletter from my local shop th...

Hi all' Well the cold snap has driven me out of the loft so I have decided to build a "Winter warmer" layout in the comfort of the back bedroom. It will be small, approx 48" x 15" with fiddle yards ta either end. It will be mainly for my modern era locos with a line at the rear o...

Merchant Navy

Hi

I am a very happy chap today as I have just bought a Merchant navy, "Holland Africa line" for £60 after searching for one for ages. Not willing to pay the silly prices they go for on ebay so cast my net further and found one on another website. Happy days.

Re: First attempt

Hi all, After finally finishing laying all the track, pics to come, I decided to tidy the wiring up. Big mistake as I now have a great big short! I think I will have to go back to the old untidy version which had separate power sections and not a long bus going from the centre to each extremity. I h...

Re: NCE Power cab / Pro cab question.

Just a quick comment. I have a power cab as I read all the different reviews before upgrading my trusty Dynamis. The power cab seems to be a much more professional piece of kit than the dynamis. Great build quality and a lovely hand set. It can do more than the Dynamis such as read CV's and all sort...
