Re: New from Heljan.

The 25XX shunter is a good choice, unlike some of the early BR shunters they could be found on every region except the Western, I might be tempted to buy one, as a couple of the locos featured were allocated to Celtral Scotlandand I am a bit short of diesel shunters.

Re: Scale Compensation Paint matching?

Wikipedia for the RAL standard makes no reference to adjusting colour shades for model making http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAL_colour_standard , however I am aware of the need to compare colour shades under exactly the same lighting conditions, w...

Re: Prototype For Everything NOW 4!

Got a Western in Maroon Livery?

Re: St. Mary Hoo - a clapped out SR branch terminus in P4

Cheers Mike; like many other aspects of the SMH project it was something that I'd always thought about, but for a short time there was a small scratch built sem...

Re: Hornby P2 #2001 "C**k of the North"

It is well known that the original Mikado Whyte wheel arrangement P2 was converted several years after release (1934 - 1938) to a Pacific 4-6-2 configuration, so I cannot see the point of the previous posting. Tim Sorry Tim but I agree with Old Man Phil, a P2 was only ever a Mikado, when they were ...
