Re: Shawbury BR 1988-91ish in N guage

Such a shame that this great layout is being dismantled, but as you've learned a lot from its development that's something you can put into the replacement to make it even better! Look forward to seeing Shawbury mk2 take shape and hope the operational side is a lot better.

Re: Old Warren TMD - Interim future is now secured

Ah but that means less time to spend on my layout :( although that means less chance to spend money on it :lol:

Re: Old Warren TMD - Interim future is now secured

Quick update as it's been a while since the last one. I treated myself to some more Virgin mk2ds to make up a rail-tour rake suitable for my 67s. These coaches were debranded by lightly rubbing them off with fine wet & dry, then giving the coaches a coat of Johnsons Kleer. The standard class sec...

Re: Hood-dale Main - actually running now.. See the video!!

Well what can I say - very moody and atmospheric! The shed looks great with the lighting. Liked the 25 video as well - certainly is a very smooth runner, and I have a soundtrack suitable for that video as well...!

Re: Hood-dale Main - V2 progressing nicely...

Those last couple of photos are brilliant. The scene blends very well into the backscene there now the fencing is in place with the scenics.

Re: Old Oak Common Hydraulic Heydays.

Very good videos Richard and I noticed the cameo appearance from the moggy too! The BR Blue era seems to suit the layout very well and I see those smoke generators are working well!

Hope you get some positive news very soon. Our very best wishes.

Re: Hood-dale Main - V2 progressing nicely...

Yippee some new photos! That turntable looks the business now that it's weathered. Very good. The seacows look very nice too.

Good to hear you had a good day in yourself. Hopefully things are on the up.

Re: Welton Central & West stations: Adding a narrow gauge li

Excellent work so far. The narrow gauge scene looks really good, and the bridge does a good job of hiding the fiddle yard entrance. Are you also ballasting the track at the very start of the fiddle yard to blend it in with the bridge?

Re: Old Warren TMD - Interim future is now secured

The Dapol 67 is an excellent runner, probably the best of the lot. It's got the super-creep motor and is very quiet. It seems happy enough hauling 13 coaches plus one of the dummies. I would do a video but don't have any suitable recordings of class 67s to dub on - yet!

Re: Old Warren TMD - Interim future is now secured

More new additions to the Old Warren stock: First I received the intermodal flats and containers and was surprised how many there were. I now have a full 16-wagon long intermodal, mainly comprising Dapol spine wagons which to my relief run well with containers on, plus a few Farish FIAs. This also m...

Re: Shaftesbury Network SouthEast in O gauge

Love the videos Darren! Nice clean start-up from 55033 - most unusual! The thumper was superb. Great reproduction of the idle sound and the smoke works really well with this. Would love to see these in action on the layout when it's ready!

Re: Old Oak Common Hydraulic Heydays.

Afraid this has come about as councils and housing associations are now fined if they have houses that are "under-occupied", that is with more than one spare bedroom. My wife deals with quite a few of these cases at the housing assocation she works for. If this compulsory move goes ahead t...

Re: Welton Central & West stations: yet more photos!

Wow you're really getting on with this now! Great work so far. Just caught up on the 9F story as well - good to see it reunited with its chimney. It reminds me of when King Edward II was being transported to my local preserved line and the valve was knocked off the roof by a branch whilst on the low...

Re: Welton Central & West stations: more photos & progress

Yes what's happened to the 9F's chimney?? :shock:

Superb work on the scenery so far. The basket liner works well there and blends in nicely.
