Re: Anyone else a little bored with the model railway norm?

Was thinking possibly a tidyed up version of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnF3iGzmsxA&feature=youtu.be

Either with 2 lines or 2 lines and a bay platform somewhere in N London :-) A quick switch of the Lampposts and signs and it could be either NSE or up to date

Re: Nice one corrie!

I saw a simlilar thing on "ICarly" recently (A kids program aimed at young girls that my girls watch 24/7). The lad in it attended a model railway club meeting and the boys on it were all tooting their horns at the start of the meeting and similar other stuff. I thought it was really funny...

Re: Anyone else a little bored with the model railway norm?

On another note im considering creating an exhibition layout myself. As I would be thinking along the lines of funding it myself and 1-2 operators it will have to be on the fairly small side. I've been thinking along the lines of pretty much replicating what I already have which is a run through sta...

Re: Anyone else a little bored with the model railway norm?

Been reading this thread with interest. Im not a member of a model railway club. I was close to joining one until I found out their new layout was going to be a 1950's steam layout. Supprisingly not all of the members who wanted to build this layout were in their late 50's and above a few my age wan...

Re: It must be Bachmann's turn for some speculating

....Class 86.... .... im not a fan of replication in the market.... Hmmm....... I reckon there is more chance of an 87 or 90 given that both Heljan and Hornby make the 86, maybe even an 81. The Bratchell range of EMUs is much reduced from what it was, I think Bachmann could make a good deal of mone...

Re: jrmi

That software reads really well. I might have to take a look at it. To be honest the only reason I was looking at RR&Co was for the full automation. Anything less than that can easily be covered by JRMI and by the looks of it that software. Full automation brings about its own problems, in my ca...

Re: It must be Bachmann's turn for some speculating

Oh god what would I love to see from Bachmann: Bullied EPB Class 313/4/5 Class 377 Class 86 Class 172 Class 357 Class 309 Class 325 Class 323 What will they make? probably not what im after. I've heard mention that people think they should cover the mk3 EMU base 317 - 322 but I think the Bratchell r...

Re: jrmi

Just the trial at the moment, but I will make the purchase eventually. I find JRMI hard to get my head around but it is an excellent piece of software. Unfortunately, trains are on hold this year whilst we do the Kitchen Diner extension, which the builders started today.

Re: jrmi

Hi Cheshire

There is a JRMI Yahoo support group that you might find useful. The developers use it regularly and will help you out with any problems you may have.

I don't have the URL but you can get it from google.

Re: HS2 phase two

Personally I think its a great idea. Having worked for BR and a County Council in my working lifetime plus worked on decent homes projects and Housing association refurbishments/newbuilds, i've seen more public money wasted than I can care to remember so a few billion more won't hurt. At least its s...

Re: oo gauge or N...

I moved from N to OO and never looked back.

However Dapol and Farish have really come on since I left and theres a lot to choose from now.

Having said that i'd never go back to N unless space was really an issue
