Re: From the fjords to my attic!

Hi NSB_IE!

I'm sorry you couldn't be bothered! :cry: I really do think my question was a resonable one!

Re: From the fjords to my attic!

Hi NSB_IE! I'm thrilled that you're actually planning to build a Norwegian layout! :D Does that mean that you are Norwegian or live in Norway? My reason for asking is simple - I'm Norwegian! If you live in Norway I suggest you stay away from the Signal Box. I had some very bad experience with them! ...

Re: Hogsmeade Station

Hi!

I'm surprised that Aidensfield Station in the Heartbeat series hasn't been mentioned. That is also filmed at Goathland. Very good series, by the way!

Re: Slow progress on a Norwegian layout

Hi lmsrail!

Yes, I will be having both. I have an old style gas lamp post by Brawa that needs to be installed. A car park is important too because I love to collect road vehicles as well as the flanged wheel types. Maybe a taxi would be very appropriate!

Best Wishes,
Tom

Re: Slow progress on a Norwegian layout

Hi! While working on the model railway today, I had the most pleasant surprise! My wife took an interest in the scenic side of things and asked if I wanted some help! :lol: I accepted her offer without hesitation, as my scenery capabilities are rubbish! Some days are definitely better than others! T...

Re: Slow progress on a Norwegian layout

Hi! We had our first snow yesterday. That's a sure sign that the railway modelling season has started in earnest! The station trackwork has been put off for a long time because it's a bit difficult to get at but now it's done - what a relief! The track is fastened with polyurethane cement. This layo...

Re: Slow progress on a Norwegian layout

Hi! I have added curtains underneath the layout to hide all the junk that naturally collects in such a fantastic storage area! The plastic storage boxes with wheels are an excellent choice for shoving under the layout! The addition of some wagon and loco builders' plates and a high voltage warning s...

Hi lmsrail!

Yes, they do look rather nice! I don't think they have to be that cold for this paticular job though! :D

Re: Slow progress on a Norwegian layout

Hi! Things are moving very slowly these days, but here is at last some progress! This stretch of trackwork is fastened with acrylic compound, a substance I have never used for modelling. It seems to work on other people's layouts so I thought why not try it on mine? To keep the track down on the roa...

Re: Ffrwd Locks. OO WR in North Wales (Wrexham) 1950-52

Hi Sarah!

This is a great layout and your weathering looks great! It's funny, but I also built the Wills garage kit and I don't know what to do with mine either! :lol:

Hi! Not much has happened since September, but here we go! I have made a feeble start on what will (I hope) be some scenery. The core is made of 20mm and 30mm polystyrene sheet cut to appropriate sized pieces covered with polyurethane foam from the builders' merchant. Polyurethane cement or low temp...

Hi!

Would it be a good idea to rename this thread "New Railway Modellers Van Tour 2008" or perhaps start a new thread? 2007 feels a little dated!

Hi! My wheels are definitely not old stock, as they come from some of Hornby's latest models. The flange has a sharp edge profile that scrapes along the rail head on curves and picks at every rail joint. The Romford wheels have a very nice rounded flange that gives a very smooth ride. Bachmann's whe...
