20/09/14 60009 'Union of South Africa' on 'The Cheshireman'

Hullo all, A few photos from my trip onboard 'The Cheshireman' from Euston to Chester and back. Saturday 20th September 2014. 60009 'Union of South Africa' was our engine for the day and a superb job she did as well. The Railway Touring Company ran the tour. Weather was miserable but I had jolly goo...

Re: PeterH's Great Central themed layout.

I hope everyone is sitting down - get ready for a shock.... I've actually made some sort of progress on the layout! The boards which will make up the station Black Stitchel are up and fixed! They are removable sections, as you can see from the photographs it lays directly about my bed. Damage will p...

Re: A Welsh Holiday 23rd, 24th & 25th August 2014

I travelled on all three railways whilst I was there. The photos of Russell were taken at the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway on the Saturday. I didn't get too many photos from the Welsh Highland Railway though except at Porthmadog as I didn't take my camera out on the Sunday which is when I was on ...

Re: Hornby SR Maunsell coaches

They are very nice coaches indeed, a good job you managed to get hold of what you were after. I have a nice 5-coach rake which will eventually get three of the Birdcage coaches added to them when they are released! Just have to be careful with the door handles and grab rails as they can damage easil...

Re: PeterH's Great Central themed layout.

I did promise an update today and I will stick to my word! I have fitted half of the stabilisers to the corner boards, the other ones will be fitted later tonight. As the glue takes a few hours to dry that'll probably be it for today. As I don't have a drill I can't get Black Stitchel baseboard up u...
