Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

This layout is coming along really nicely. The row of cottages look superb, they really look like they sit naturally in the landscape. I look forward to your future updates.

Re: ParkeNd's Autumn Competition attempt - Railway Cottages

I really don't think you should compare your buildings to mass produced items - after all yours are meticulous replicas of real buildings in an area you know well, and as such they will mean more to you than any resin casting ever could.

I don't know about that...

A quick Ebay search reveals that the a cottage from the Hornby Liddle End range is currently for sale (BIN) for £44.50 - the quality of your model is probably comparable, if not better.
