Re: 8x5 OO BR late 80's - Still going

Reminds me very much of my original extended 6'x4' (to 7'6"x4') from such a long time ago that I could watch 45s and 25s on the Midland Main Line at the top end of the village then run my own OO equivalent on my layout when I got home :wink: Looks like you could have a lot of fun with that set ...

Re: The BNR (another way)

Thanks for posting those pics and a description of the mods Gerald; certainly looks worth doing. I do think that a lot of the older stuff is overlooked when it is perfectly serviceable and relatively cheap these days; I've stopped going to toy fairs as I was taking £50 or £60 and coming back with lo...

Re: The BNR (another way)

...All the Hornby 0-6-0s have modified wheelsets to improve the running over insulfrog points. There's a nice view of my Triang DMU which has been detailed and given upgraded driving wheels: it's a beautiful runner. So what exactly did you do to the 0-6-0 locos to improve running? How did you upgra...

Re: The BNR (another way)

Freelance is good and whilst very frequent with narrow gauge models is not done often enough these days using standard(ish in your case) gauge. I have a collection of older Triang-Hornby and Hornby equipment that I have gradually collected and I hope to build a layout for them some day not caring a...

Re: Garden Railway book

For an infectious enthusiasm that is sadly missed I'd recommend 'Practical Garden Railways' by the late Great Peter Jones (not the Dragon's Den one!) of Compton Down fame. I have this book (along with a few others now out of print by Peter) and have enjoyed and continue to enjoy it cover to cover. A...

Re: The BNR (another way)

I really like the use of some of the older models and scenic items that are often overlooked these days in favour of superdetailed yet fragile models. Dock shunters. Hornby 4-wheeled coached and their like are amazingly familiar to all of a certain age and it is good to see someone having fun with t...

Re: Bachmann class 03.......

I'd have thought they would display well although unless 'fully finished' you are going to have to get your paintbrush out to complete cab interior detailing etc. I have the Austerity/J94 and the level of detail is high, the cab is fully fitted out, sprung axles etc. but the paint finish is plain bl...

Re: cheap "lgb " axles?

Are you looking for wheels for locos or rolling stock?
Bachmann make some reasonable metal wheels as replacements for plastic types at around £12 to £15 for 4 axles.
Part number 92421 31.0mm dia wheels 45mm gauge.

Re: Simple branch line

A suspicious person may think that you always planned for the layout to be moved into the loft for you own personal edification :wink:

Pleasant looking workspace that you have created up there though; do you have problems with dust as the loft does not look to be fully insulated/lined?

Re: Spero junction

Enjoyable little video of a developing layout.
Interesting to share you thoughts and decisions with the 'viewer' on camera.
Looks like you can have a good running session wit the slightly unusual track plan.

Re: Thomas At Silver Fox Island - one for kids to drive

Despite its apparent simplicity this is rather clever and there is a great deal of thought that has gone into the design and construction of this layout.
Enjoyed reading the thread and would like something similar to use as a portable test track.
