Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

Mrs C is fired. No magazine came home with the shopping so I’m going to have to go get it myself. :roll: In the meantime I’m just going to have to settle for your most recent raft of photos. The goods yard is brilliant. The little cameos set the whole thing off and you’d never know that curved point...

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Coops, any update is a great update from Friargate, now get typing. :lol: Jim, thank you and with that here’s an early stage progress of my next bridging project. Before placing the plaster bandage all three bridges are to be constructed and fitted in place so I’ve started with the simplest one, wel...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

I haven’t bought Railway Modeller in over a year (the last one to take advantage of a freebie) but Mrs C has already been instructed to add it to her shopping list for tomorrow. Really looking forward to seeing the article.

Re: Hawick via Grantham, Inverness and SIAM (00 gauge DC)

Are you telling us that this is the first test you did to ensure height was ok against a loco? :o Surely not! It’s really looking the business though. I had a trip to Lisburn last weekend to visit a layout, there may be another longer expedition to Dundalk needed once this is complete! Or you could ...

I can do a tamper.

How about something else to do with track maintenance.

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

PNP, I’d thought of using paper mache as a cheaper alternative to the plaster bandage and may still go down this route, nothing set in stone yet. Hey Coops, long time no sign of you. :D This was my first dabble in static grass and it turned out not too bad. The embankments were treated to 4mm and 6m...

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

It is indeed Victoria and she’s being a contrary old girl. For some reason or another she does not enjoy my points and Is also not that keen on pulling long trains. I’m just not that way minded to know how to fix her. Some time I’m going to have to leave her with someone to sort it out for me, eithe...

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Timbersurf, a hard slog is what it is but having watched a few trains roll by on the painted sections I know it’s going to be worth it. Why card? One reason is it was free and available to me in large quantities, secondly, I started with polystyrene sheets and knew all too well the mess it would mak...

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

It is an absolute beauty PNP, you should be very proud of it. The paint finish on it and the wagons is first class, it just oozes character. I really want to see it in its scenic surroundings now.

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

The card formers are now in place in this area of the layout and almost ready for plaster bandage to be applied. Before I can do that I need to finish off one or two other jobs. The rails need painting on five sides of the track, two bridges constructed, a wood trim facia applied to the edge of the ...
