Re: Birmingham New Street in P4

I too have lurked in awe on this thread. I remember seeing Dons Miniature New Street in the Railway Modeller back in the 1980s(? I think I still have the copy) and thinking how epic that layout was, but it was just 00, and when I saw that you were building it in P4 I could not believe it. Superb lay...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Hi Steve and thanks once again for the kind comments. As far as I am aware the sigalling would just about meet the requirements of the prototype railway, there are probably one or two areas where a professional signalman would take issue with the position of the signals. Several of the signals pre-d...

Re: OO gauge handrails

I make mine using dressmakers pins and telephone wire, push the pins into the base and solder the wire to the pin heads, it is not as hard as you think. Couple of examples showing the stair handles up to the signalbox at Northbridge andRound the Turntable at Gateside... http://farm9.staticflickr.com...

Re: Working N scale Monorail

You could do something like this Scottish Prototype, if you want to try let me by shares in Evergreen or Slaters first, as you will need a ton of Plastic Strip!!! http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y235/Section1/swiki/b1/benniepost2.jpg Personally I wil stick to modelling the N2 and train below :D Jim

Re: More ebay beauties

Add a Hurst Models LDP010 HST Driving Van Trailer (DVT) Buffer Beam Conversion Kit and you would have a pretty unique loco to run on a layout.

Re: Neil's New Model Railway

Hi Neil - Impressive stuff there!! You might however, in the interests of avoiding damage to the more delicate parts of your models, want to review some of the clearances between the tracks. I see some areas where the prototype "6ft" (nominally 2" for straight and a bit larger for tig...

Re: Dockside Intermodal Container Depot

Superb work there, lovely detail!! The Scalescenes range has been one of the best additions to the modellers arsenal for a long long time, but it takes a good modeller to get the best out of them, kep up the good work.
