Re: New Member from Guernsey

Hi Spike and welcome to the forum. :) HO is modelled mainly on European prototypes but being only slightly different scale to 00 (1:87 instead of 1:76 if i remember rightly), some of the other non rolling stock items may be permissable like buildings, people etc. Number 1 rule here is your friend......

Re: Fishacre Railway, a oo layout

A great space for a layout. :)
I would concur with others about reach. Cleaning the track is a tedious but neccessary evil and you need to be able to reach all if it to clean it.
Inclines? I wouldn't have a clue. :lol:
Thanks

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I found myself at Gaugemaster again today. I didn't buy anything but I did get a close look at a couple of new Hornby locos and theres one new 0-4-0ST that may well make it onto my layout. Looking at the Hornby website it states that it will be released in June 2019 yet it was in the cabinet at the ...

Re: Linka

Great stuff Dublo. :) Look forward to seeing your results.
I know what you mean about the time taken to cast multiple castings. I bought doubles of certain moulds to speed up the process.

Re: New bedroom 8x4 oo gauge layout

After a brief look for "roundhouse" on ebay there are kits but for HO rather than 00. Walthers, Kirbi amongst others.
They are not too out of scale but you need to check the door height. Some other members might know of a proper 00 scale roundhouse kit that I didn't find.
Thanks

Re: New bedroom 8x4 oo gauge layout

I need see if I can find some roundhouses for it. It might be cheaper to build them yourself if you can. The only roundhouse I know of off the shelf is this one.... http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/38804/44-007Z-Bachmann-Scenecraft-Cornish-Roundhouse There may be others or kit build ones that...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

My intial board with track attached is standing up on its side at the moment and I noticed something last night. I've made a glaringly beginner mistake. Not having the legs built when the baseboard was built, I've drilled holes through the cross beams for the wires to go through and all those holes ...

Re: Hornby R1233 The Coca-Cola Christmas Train Set 2019

After the Thomas franchise this, like a typical Dapol coupler, is a complete flop.
Hornby madness showing through again like thier Cornish Carrier train set. GWR loco, GW brake van.....and a wagon from West Wales. Miles away from Cornwall :shock: :roll:
No. I won't be buying one.
