How about a Garratt in G scale? (It's not the same type I believe but still a beauty.)

Right then you 'Orrible lot, I've been promising to certain members that I'd post some more pictures... So here they are. :D The new ramp running alongside and over the tunnel.

He made it himself... Not everything is produced by companies these days...

Like the look of the plan there mate. The baseboard looks like a nice solid construction!

Can't wait to see trains rumbling around the layout.

Re: Strathspey Railway - Scotland

Must ditto Mikes words about this line. Absoulutely beautiful scenery. If you ever visit this line, and stay at Aviemore I suggest you also go up to the Cairngorm mountain and catch the funicular railway to the top, if you do this on a clear day, then my gosh, possibly the best view you'll get in al...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hey Mike,

Is the Strathspey signal box based on one at the strathspey railway? I'm up in that area at the moment, lovely little line.

Keep up the fantastic work on the kits mate, and I hope your problems go away soon.

Re: Your opinion on the new Arriva 158 livery

I think that something like 13 of them are getting refurbed.. Some of them on the Aberystwyth-birmingham line. From the outside, they look fabulous! compared to the boring silver ones, and the lighter green ones. :D

Re: Wolford - OO Newbie

I've been debating with myself wether or not I like class 20's... But that livery looks great on them. Nice purchase.. Also, Who's signal box kit is that? It isn't one of Mikem64's or is it?? As other than Him I'm oblivious to anyone else on the forum who makes their own kits. Thanks, keep the updat...

Haha! Can't even keep time now... :oops: You don't seem to pay attention as much when they've been going past for the past 9 years... And when you can tell it's a special coming down the line because of the horn.... at various level crossings up the line. :P

Oooh, aren't those thestrals just beasts! (The joke is for you non HP fans is, that only people that have witnessed people dying can actually see the thestrals, and the thestrals are the thingies that pull the carts to Hogwarts.) Those carriages look good, I'm guessing you cracked those brass kits i...
