Re: Preserved Loco's with Fictitious Liveries

Somehow that livery looks not too bad on steam locos. Doesn't look "right", but looks good.

Re: modelfair.com-the price is right?

I think the point is you can't just go to one place for everything. Some places do some things cheaper than others. Just shop around, don't rely on one place. =)

Re: class 37 Diesels

Well, according to Wikipedia, 46 have been preserved, 4 are still in use with West Coast Railway Company, and DRS have about 25. EWS have got rid of all of theirs.

As to that articles accuracy, I'm not 100% but it's the best source I've got at the moment. =)

Re: A good heratige railway layout

Also you could deliberately keep a bit of space next to one side of the running track, to make it look like it was formerly a double-track line... At the station, have two platforms, but one with either no track or just a siding for stock storage... Example (of course, this probably wouldn't work to...

Re: Wordsworth - South Fangore Scenic Work Begins

nic what are those carrages where it shows the dead end are they teak ones? Read the 3 Comments previous to your post, and your answer will be answered. I think he means the 3 teak coaches in the same picture as the celestory, but if I'm not mistaken, those are the hornby ones? Great work as always...
