Re: The MSLR in OO scale

Hi Not much done today. Mostly thinking about a second station for the line. Imposable you say I am not so sure :) . A net search came up with two possibilities for basing it on not sure which way to jump. Both from the Weston Celvedon and Portishead Light Railway. Both conveniently located by ungua...

Re: 00 Layout - station name

Hi thomasg87 This does look good. As for a name I don't see any town development so how about Watling Street. Street or road on the station name means the town or village the railway serves could be a few miles away, unless its part of a large metropolitan suburban network. I have one of those tin s...

Re: Tonglington Vale - Not So Permanant Way!

Hi Alex May I sugest you look for the older Triang Hornby station buildings. Thats if we are talking the plastic ones they have better detail than the modern flat printed things. People poo-poo them but Dapol make a nice looking pub it will be a pain to paint and I think needs slaters octagonal chim...

Re: Tonglington Vale - Not So Permanant Way!

Re: OO9 Wormington Light Railway Project

Hi b308 Now that does look very nice. What is it, its pretty big for a two foot or there abouts narrow gauge loco. To me it looks like it should have some very posh decoration on the front and a royal standards on the flag poles. Which probably means with the kind of luck I have it hauls beat up bog...

Re: OO9 Wormington Light Railway Project

Hi b308 The gloss varnish is supposed to make moving the transfers into just the right place easier and sit flatter before the decal fix is applied. It is not the finishing coat. The finishing coat goes on after the transfers are dry and can be gloss, flat or satin according to personal taste. regar...

Re: OO9 Wormington Light Railway Project

You're better off using a primer (after cleaning the whitemetal) or the paint will eventually start to peal off... Halfords grey primer will do just fine, it allows you to see all the small blemishes you need to sand down/fill before giving it a top coat, and your paint finish will be better as wel...

Re: Bachmann 2012-13 Products

Wonder what they'll do for 2013-14. Hopefully a 17in Coal Engine or a J21 is on there somewhere. Anything as long as its better than what Hornby are offering I wonder if we can persuade them to do LNER ex NB three plank fish wagons with removable tarps. perhaps some other ex pre grouping stock that...

Re: Titfield thunder bolt Oh dear!!

Personally I feel that getting all worked up about the accuracy of a set which portrays a fictitious train made as a film in a fictitious location is stretching criricism of Hornby a bit too far and is compeletely unfair. Well done to Hornby for the idea and well done for managing to produce a slig...
