Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Thanks for the comments and advice guys. Much appreciated as usual. The one thing my visit to Stafford did do was to get me thinking again about using the 2 baseboards I have for my 'running in' track and converting them into a small portable layout. There were a couple of nice Loco shed layouts at ...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Hi guys. I got a little motivated last week to do some work on the layout but my plans didn't quite come to fruition. I'd got 5 lamps for the Loco Shed area and my first thoughts were go out of my comfort zone and wire them up and see if they work. So with the holes drilled etc. I went under the bas...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

Parcels Depot is excellent Jim. We expect nothing less from your modelling. Really adds to the busy scene that is Millsend. Love the pile of coal in the corner. Presumably for the office fire. Looks like there's some nice big lumps in the pile.

Hi guys.
Here's a picture of the original coupling (on the left) along side a Bachmann Mini loop long coupling 36-026.

Bachmann Class 25 couplings

You are my last hope guys. I need a coupling (or couplings) for a Bachmann class 25 D7645. The Bachmann catalogue number is 32-400 and the coupling spares number is 400-030. Bacmann say that they are obsolete and Peter's spares don't have any. I've search the whole internet without luck. I've just f...

The above line caught my eye whilst reading your posts, just my cup of tea by the sound of it!

Looking forward to seeing it develop.

JIm.


I'm with Jim on this one.
You've got me interested.

Re: 2017. Which Threads Have Inspired You The Most....

Millsend for me. A very accurate reproduction of a northern industrial town's railway in the 50s/60s. It just captures the scene and the atmosphere so well. It took me back to the years of my childhood and growing up. Everyboby that's contributed to the forum in 2017 deserves a mention for their pos...

Re: Carriage prices are nuts!

If I see anything expensive (Bachmann Autocoach/Inspection coach@ £50+) I wait till Christmas/birthday and ask my 4 daughters to buy it for me between them. That's the only way I can justify spending that amount of money on one piece of rolling stock. I keep thinking I'll up date my maroon and custa...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Hi guys. HAPPY NEW YEAR. I hope we all get some good modelling time in 2018. The fat guy in the red suit has been and gone for another year. Just a couple of items of rolling stock in my stocking on Christmas morning. A Bachmann Horse box and a Sand Hopper both weathered from TMC (where else?). I mu...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

That converted Southern Country Station certainly looks the business Jim. Amazing what a coat of Midland maroon and a bit of muck can do. I must admit I'm with Mountain wondering how you get so much into 11 x 8. I've often wondered how big Millsend is and would have guessed a minimum 20 x 10 or even...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

I took Ivatt 2-6-0 46426 to the Warley show with me for TMC to give it a 'medium' weathering and cab crew. Here's a few pictures of the finished loco. IMG_3219.JPG IMG_3221.JPG IMG_3229.JPG The coal in the tender looks a bit shiny and will need 'dulling' down. The loco had a very interesting journey...
