ok im confused now , you have been talking about class 47 loco and yet you got a class 50 up :? Sorry - my fault, I have a habit of over-complicating things :oops: I got the 47 with the set but didn't realise the livery was post-privatisation. It now needs respraying (£45 apparently) but on impuls...

I was so disgusted to find that the livery of my 47 was post-privatisation that I immediately bought this despite now going over my monthly budget: http://www.hattons.co.uk/images/products/371253_1.jpg 8) I'm obviously going to have to get a respray for my 47 - I was thinking of using Heritage N to ...

. The only starter set with one if my fav locos in was this one but ideally wanted my layout to be BR blue (mid-80s). I thought, no problems, mid-90s was my second choice but after researching a bit, I think this livery is post-privatisation, which sucks. I may be shot down in flames here , but , I...

Nice initial plan Mr T. - Being as you're going to have several points eventually , I would buy one left and one right and then use them as a template ,along with your curves and straights , to draw your plan on your baseboard. Btw ,What's in the set ? The reason I ask is this. If you plan to go fo...

The board is 5" x 2"6 Ohhhh, how convenient is that - I was considering a layout of this exact size but considered it too big to manhandle about the house, through doors, etc. I've shrunk the plan down to 4' x 2', but since you have a board of this exact size can you tell me how easy it i...

Thats a good idea - I'll switch one of them round, thanks guys. The board is 5" x 2"6 so should provide enough space for a decent layout. In a few months, it'll hopefully be pretty good. I just can't decide wether to have the main station at the top over the two loops (with a bay platform ...

MrT's BR Blue era N Gauge layout

OK, I built my baseboard at the weekend, so its about time I put a thread up. I bought a GF starter set a few weeks ago, and went to Rails at the weekend for more track and another controller. They've ran out of setrack so I put an order in but bought myself a nice Gaugmaster twin controller for my ...

N Gauge Baseboard Size

Having looked around for a few days, I'm leaning towards making an N gauge layout due to space constraints, and the fact that the choice of rolling stock seems alot bigger now. Quick question: do you guys think that a 5' x 2' board will give me a big enough layout? I'd ideally like 4 or 5 trains to ...
