PECO CODE 100

Hi all. Merry Christmas and (hopefully) a Happy New Year to all you guys on NRM. I was just wondering if anyone has got any upto date information regards production at Peco, particularly code 100 track and points? Although I've started the main platforms on ROBINSON ROAD I will be needing 10 x metre...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

Can't help wondering if the 25's driver has stopped to buy an ice-cream? This reminds me of a railtour I went on in JUNE 1992 called the Worksop Whistler that had been organised to coincide with an Open Weekend at Worksop Depot. We visited local Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire collieries which are n...

Re: B & H Models limited edition Bachmann wagons

... They are now on edition 9 of Ramsay's which was published in 2016. This is the most up to date version... And most likely the last in print form, based on a comment seen fairly recently. Essentially, huge amount of work, expensive to print, only modest demand. I think mine was a freebie from so...

Re: B & H Models limited edition Bachmann wagons

I've just found my old (3rd edition) of Ramsay's British Model Trains catalogue. It's well over 10 years old. There's lots of info on Bachmann Classic Coal Traders with quite a few Lincolnshire private owners mentioned. It also tells you which are special editions such as B & H Models etc. Pete ...

Re: B & H Models limited edition Bachmann wagons

Being originally from the county, I'd love to know what Lincolnshire private owner wagons have been commissioned by B & H Models of Lincoln. I've emailed them to ask if they can tell me where I might find a list, but I haven't been favoured with a reply, so - does anybody know of a likely alter...

Random discolouring of pictures.

Hi all. Recently I've had some random discolouring of some of the pictures in my 2 threads on the forum. Best way to explain is that usually it's like part of the picture is in negative colours. The areas effected are random in size but usually with a straight line divide i.e. across the middle. I'v...

Less strain on my aging back lol. As with the baseboard it's took a lot longer to get the platforms d...
