Re: Back to N...Under construction. Building Bridges.

Corking work Zunnan, the layout is coming on really well. I repainted some HAA hoppers as well - as you say, it's pretty easy given that you can take them apart. I only did 4 though!

Re: n gauge layout 1970s layout.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the info. Can't see anything on the BH site but if they're at the Leamington show in a couple of weeks I'll have a look then. The peak won't have a headcode as it'll be in plated over 1980's condition.

Re: "Needs a name" layout!

Crikey Marcus, that is some very impressive woodwork, the helix and fiddle yards look fantastic. Sorry to hear that it is a home only layout, was looking forward to seeing the finished result on the exhibition circuit at some point.

Re: n gauge layout 1970s layout.

Hi Richard,

Some great pics there. I am always very impressed with your loco conversions. I notice a split box peak there - may I ask where you got the replacement end from? I am after some flush nose ends for a 1980's peak and was wondering if the same place might do some.

Thanks

Re: TINGS

I'll be there but only on the Sunday due to a wedding on the Saturday - some people have no sense of timing!

Re: Dapol class 58

023 certainly had the original handrails till at least 1998: http://bobfostersrailgallery.fotopic.net/p57887124.html I've concentrated on the Red Stripe livery though and it definitely had them during all its time in that livery as well from what I can see. Having just had a quick look for 012, it s...

Re: Dapol class 58

Got my RF Red Stripe one yesterday - very nice looking loco and a great runner. The only problem I have with them is the fact that the cab handrails supplied are of the wrong type for 012 and 023 in Red Stripe - they only had white handrails from what I can see, not the 'filled-in' type. I seem to r...

Re: Old Warren TMD now under construction

Hi Chris,

This looks like it'll be a corking layout, thanks for posting some pics. Just out of interest, what is the radius of your inner loop?

Re: Graham Farish Class 220 4 car unit

I find most Farish stuff doesn't need much running in to be honest.

I would say take it back for replacement, the trailing car shouldn't have much resistance at all, the one I briefly had didn't have any.

Re: Long Newton: BR 1980ish - 1993 in N

Finished! really? Doesn't that mean it's time to start on the next one? :shock: Just joking: I see you mentioned working on a timetable - any other plans for fine-tuning other areas of interest? The layout really is looking good :) I am starting the next one - this weekend! Only this time its a sma...
