New Gaugemaster GM360 Catalogue

News just in. Gaugemaster have released a new catalogue. I've never seen one before. I was there on Sunday and yet they weren't promoting it. Either that or I missed it yet I looked round nearly the whole shop except the scalextric section. Gaugemaster GM360 Catalogue - http://www.gaugemaster.com/it...

Re: Lledo Days Gone scale??

It's funny you should mention that Bufferstop. I was "playing cars" with a young member of the family yesterday and noticed that all the cars seem to be roughly the same length but you can spot the scaling of the boxes they came in a mile off. I think some were Hot Wheels cars though. Than...

Re: what do you hope to achieve from your model railway?

I think the main difference between the "train set crowd" and a railway modeller (no matter the skill level) is that the former play with it for a while then it goes back in it's box and stuck in the loft for years whereas the latter always have the layout out to enjoy, work on and improve...

Most definatly glencairn. 1:60 is a very odd scale.

Re: what do you hope to achieve from your model railway?

I'm with you 100%. Looks like a crap train set. Even the so called weathering is sh*t! How can you make a promotional video where the cameras so close to the tracks you can't even see what the trains are? :roll: If I wanted to watch a load of over-clean plastic going round...I'd stand in a supermark...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street

Thats a great idea glencairn. :)
From what I've read, landowners would allow a line to be built on / through their land if concession was made for a small halt or station for the "Lord of the manor".
