Re: Diesels at Crown Point

What a load of old scrap, in the best sense of the word. :D
It looks brilliant and definatly more than a head nod to our railway heritage. Something not often seen on a model layout.
Can I ask glencairn, is that one of the new Horby Rocket train pack releases in the first picture?
Thanks

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

Almost a month without an update. :shock: I have been building my Ratio yard office kit that came free with January's issue of Railway Modeller magazine. No pictures to show yet as I still have the roof to add. I sprayed the roof parts once but (stupidly) I managed to mix up the the lids of 2 of the...

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

Ah the old 419 scam. Some Nigerian tried that nonsense on me, offering £5000 for a £500 pc. :lol: Do they think we are that gullible. :lol:
Not on ebay though.

Re: Vehicle Scale

1/50 will probably look way off scale.
You may find something from Oxford Commercials range that may fit the bill?

Re: Hornby Steampunk models

as for the models, honestly they look dreadful, they look like someones covered Hornby's cheapest rolling stock in superglue, launched it into waste plastic bin and the spray painted the result matte black with a dry brushing of silver for highlights to me they just look really cheap and awful :lol...

Re: Wandle Park

All coming together very nicely Brightonman. :D One point of note. I used to live right by the River Graveny (a tributary of the Wandle) and reckon those railings should be black as although only a few inches deep most of the time, during heavy rainfall the river can rise over 6 feet in depth. I saw...

Re: Hornby Steampunk models

I just tried to show someone the steampunk models on the Hornby website but cannot see them in the new range. Even the site search shows 0 results for "Steampunk" Maybe someone was correct with an early April Fools day. :lol: As for the buildings, albeit re-dressed products already in the ...

Re: General Qs

Thinking about introdcuing some particularly Scottish locos to the layoout - ie K4s, Glens etc. I've seen kits, but don't want that route at present. Any method of converting standard RTR using (say) a Bachmann K3 chassis for the K4? and some other 4-4-0 for the Glen. Don't want too much of a chore...
