Re: Effect of the internet on our hobby

I much prefer going to shows and swap meets as you get a much wider range of second hand bits which is where the real value of a shop is! Yes when it comes to 2nd hand items I heartily agree. I visit a toy/train fair at Brighton racecourse when it is on. OK so I have to pay £2 to get in, but if I o...

Re: 2 GWR Station pictures - for inspiration (photo heavy)

Excellent additional information and posts chaps!
Funny enough those pictures you posted Old Man Phil are circa my birth year :lol:
And...to boot.... I have that GWR pannier for my layout :) although I don't think I will be adding THAT MUCH overgrowth on the platforms. :lol:
Thanks

Re: Effect of the internet on our hobby

One thing I omitted from my initial post that others have mentioned is shopping online and virtual cash holding. I cannot drive and my local model shop is less than applaudable to be honest so I cannot get to other model shops unless a special trip is planned. This leaves me having to shop online fo...

Re: Effect of the internet on our hobby

For me personally it's a no-brainer. I'm a solo modeller, not belonging to any club or society. Many years ago I used to read the modelling mags and what I saw was way above anything I could even invisage of creating. Like manuals for things. The manual may tell you how the manufacturer expects you ...

Re: Picking a DCC Command Station

I wonder if BUFFERS has any setup.Probably the closest proper model shop to you, as you no doubt are already aware. I wanted to visit them last weekend when I was down your way (DAD-1) but fate dictated that it was a BH weekend so I couldn't make a visit as it was closed. Don't waste your time at To...

Re: Have Hornby Lost the Plot

Hornby and thier crazy ways. One thing it seems that Hornby are forgetting......for Model shops (like record shops), part of the hobby is spending time IN model shops, purusing the goods, chatting with the owner or other modellers, getting advice or simply checking out whats new or on the shelves at...

In 1879, the Great Western Railway, who held the operating licence for the original Bridport Railway (which ran as far as Bridport town), decided...

2 GWR Station pictures - for inspiration (photo heavy)

Over Easter I visited family in Dorset and managed to, albeit not planned, get to a couple of old G.W.R. stations to grab some photos. Unfortunatly at the first station, I missed taking photos of the last train to leave for the day, only managing to capture it from atop the bridge. :roll: The first ...
