Re: Weird Stuff On The railways. What Have You Seen?

It'll stay there until the line is fixed or the speed restriction is published, if it's missing the driver will soon let the signaller know and then someone will be back out there to put another out, sharpish as the delay for cautioning trains will go to NR. Never heard em' called disco boards alway...

Re: Dapol/Kitmaster "Deltic"

I too started this project (finally finished the other day) a week before NRM announced the second batch of deltic's. The misshaped body is a problem and even with hot water one side is still a little bowed. I fitted mine to a Hornby railroad deltic chassis which just needed a slight modification fo...

Re: Weird Stuff On The railways. What Have You Seen?

It's a Dalak! or an emergency speed restriction indicator that you saw, used to warn drivers of an unpublished speed restriction that they are approaching.

Re: Hornby 2014 speculation thread

Re: Has anyone got December's Hornby Magazine?

I buy Hornby Magazine and Railways Illustrated which follow the more usual and yet bizarre format of naming each edition after the month following publication. So both have just had their December editions published. Somebody told me there is actually a reason why this happens, something to do with...

Re: Is it really worth it?

If you want an example of how good kit and scratch-building can be take a look at Pendon (but don't expect to get to that level too soon).

Re: New To Forum & Model Railways
