Pete's layout No.2, A little Something French in HO

Hi Hopefully by the end of the week one of these arrives (though it will be in 100,000,000 pieces): http://www.petesproject.co.uk/layout/french/E174new.JPG It's an HO scale 140G Pershing locomotive of the SNCF. They were brought over to France after the end of the First World War by the Americans, a...

Hi Are we talking Maindee east Cardiff? I have a cracking book with loads of coal yard/coaling platform pictures 'Modelling Aspects of the Coal Industry', Rob Johnson, Book Law Publications 2003, ISBN 1 899624 43 0. It cost about £20.00, and although appearing quite slim, is packed to the brim with...

Hi

I appreciate you haven't finalised your design, but what sort of scenery you intending to have?

I take it your not particularly into shunting?

dynamite A nice looking layout, wish I had the space you've got/will have. Just a question, you have a turntable, will it ever in practice get used?, as your only running loops there seems to be no reason why a loco will have to be turned. The sheds to the left of the turntable imply the locos will ...

It's a nice sized space you have there, is the room to be used for anything else?

Hi I think the sites going well at the moment, it's a shame more people don't contribute though, there's 97 registered users, but probably less than 10 regular posters, if it was worth registering, it's worth posting. Come on have a go, post your views/observations, otherwise it'll just be a chat ro...

Nothing like a bit of history! I've been thinking of creating some profiles for the people who will be positioned on my layout, the station master, the local quarry owner, members of the bavarian band etc. I've seeen some nice nuns too in N gauge (though I'll have to stop it looking like an audition...

Hi Phew glad about that, would hate to offend! :oops: Just been looking at your website again, I really like your old layout, a shame you couldn't progress it more. Do you have a particular plan in mind for your new layout? Is it based on anywhere or just a 'fantasy' to show your trains off, you see...

Hi If you'd like an opinion go for a shed, as you say cheaper and easier to erect. I have two sheds, one as a workshop the other as my layout room. Never had a problem with fire, I don't think you should even begin to worry about this, unless your a secret smoker and stockpile petrol. Security is an...
