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...

Re: PeterH's Great Central themed layout.

I suppose I ought to get on with it then really! I've got a free weekend coming up so that'll be an ideal time to get on with it. Stabilising the corner baseboards is the first job to get on with really.

Actual real updates on Sunday or else!

Bluebell Railway Sunday 29th June 2014.

Hello all, I went off on a coach trip to the Bluebell railway yesterday - the first time I have been there for 14 years! It was a jolly good day out. http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u47/PeterHHodge/DSCF4919.jpg http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u47/PeterHHodge/DSCF4922.jpg http://i165.photobucke...

Last place is Middleton Top is it not? Quite an interesting history to that line.

Re: PeterH's Watford Junction thread. Railcam - Watford p.15

It is quite an interesting site - those track diagrams are incredibly useful as well. Able to track things up and down the line is really good. The auto-stills are jolly handy too! http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u47/PeterHHodge/192_168_0_64_01_20140618073429_MOTDEC.jpg http://i165.photobucket.co...

Swindon and Cricklade Railway Saturday 14th June 2014: Met 1

Hello all, A few photos from my recent trip to the Swindon and Cricklade Railway on Saturday 14th June 2014.

Re: Shinohara 00 gauge scissors crossing - which code to use

Hopefully it'll just fit together nicely. Thanks for the advice, I'll ring people up and ask when I order as well I think - can't do any harm! I think you are probably right though, I had a similar feeling as well.

Shinohara 00 gauge scissors crossing - which code to use?

Hello all, Looking at my track plan I have been considering using a scissor crossing to save space. It looks like using the Shinohara ones are easier and probably slightly cheaper than making your own ones out 5 point pieces. The only trouble is that I am using Code 75 track and Shinohara don't do a...
