Re: Kernow & GWR JR (Combined OO & N Gauge) 1896-1938

Hello one and all, Just a quick up-date to let you know that very shortly I should be back on the foot-plate :) Visited Durham Trains model-shop in Stanley Co Durham today and "got rid of" a further £300+ on 55 Gauge and 75 Gauge Track and a large selection of curved Turn-outs in both Gaug...

Re: Waton - N gauge challenge

Hello Dave, Many Thanks, mate, for that excellent "in-house Training Course". Is it possible that the same procedure could be used to represent growing/ripening fields of wheat and barley etc? If I "make all the same mistakes" as you did, will my grass look as good as yours :lol:...
