Re: Tonglington Abbey - Kato N Gauge Unitrack in 4ft by 16ins

Excellent work, Alex. Well done. Glencairn Thank you! Apologies for what seemed like the sudden death of this thread, but since the layout moved house with us it has spent most of its time in a cupboard, it suffered some minor damage after the initial move but nothing major and this has been rectif...

Re: Hornby 2019 Range Speculation Thread

I did some online reading about a warner bros/DC comics deal with Hornby, apparently there's talk of trainsets (potter?),scalextric(batman...again?) and corgi (both series diecast?) possibly. But warner bros or whoever said they had "big plans" with hornby in 2019.

Re: Hornby 2019 Range Speculation Thread

Had a thought in the bath last night, What about doing the J15 as a Y14 in GER livery (and surprise GER six Wheelers!) that would be nice and not too difficult to do I don't think? Mind you I'm not as clued up on the engineering differences between the two versions. Wonder what the club 0-4-0 will b...

Re: Decision time - the sale of the century

I was hoping to get a few items, there was some stuff i did want that sold out, but my old landlord is being a See You Next Tuesday and hasn't returned my deposit nearly two months after we moved out, and so not only did me and the misses not have money to get ourselves anything nice for christmas (...

Re: Hornby 2019 Range Speculation Thread

Now that they have stopped renewing the Thomas license maybe we will see some interesting reliveries of those models (with smokebox doors added) in the railroad range, perhaps LBSC extended tank E2, industrial livery percy, L&Y livery on the old James? I know, highly unlikely. I do hugely regret...

Re: Tonglington Abbey - Kato N Gauge Unitrack in 4ft by 16ins

Time for another small update! This one is just about adding some foliage and is the last time I did any real photography of the layout before moving house. I will start by saying that we have very limited internet access at the moment, we have no broadband or phoneline at the new house yet, however...

Meticulous planning, very nice. I take note that your mixed goods train has a small rake of dairy wagons. Was this a common practice in the day? Thanks! I have no idea but branch lines did have mixed trains. Sorry I haven't been active lately but I'm finally moving to a better house this week. Alex

Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

I don't think I've ever seen a perfectly flat field or meadow! Have you never been to Norfolk? I only caught the bit at the end where they were judging the layouts, loved the winning one and missendens was nice but could have been finished better. We don't have channel five saved on our sky box, we...

Re: Bachmann LBSCR B2 Atlantic release

I love the LBSCR, and even though i changed down to N I still have an E2, Stepney from the TTTE range and terrier No.79 'Minories'. The lack of RTR LBSCR stock is more apparent in N, I have a SE&CR terrier on preorder (I want the lbsc and lswr ones too) but aside from that I don't think there is...

Re: OMG Peco's got a new website.

When using the site I find the heading part with the navigation bar covers half the screen and the links in the navigation bar didn't seem to work very well. Could just be my browser though or my computer, must check it out on my tablet though.

Re: Tonglington Abbey - Kato N Gauge Unitrack in 4ft by 16ins

There is a make (whose I have forgot) of OO cork underlay that comes in double track width but is precut to be split into single track width. The edges are cut at an angle which is laid upside down will butt up against the Kato track to give a flush ground appearance ideal for yards etc. Thanks for...
