Re: Tough track

Gosh. They must have put too much current while doing the electro static grass!

Re: Amunitions Factory

I like the plan Emmettman. Out of interest, is Emmett the fictional train type thing similar to what Smallbrook Studio make in kit form? I have a plan similar to the one you have. Didn't consider using such tight curves in 00 gauge. My plan would have needed a large board, but if I tighten the shunt...

Re: Fictional Rolling stock

Looks ripe for 7mm narrow gauge use. Especially those lovely cast metal bogies! I make wagons out of those, a single wagon from each bogie!

Re: Amunitions Factory

Thanks so much all who added to this post. Not sure if I can make a layout based on the idea yet, as I may need to wait to move house first so I can make a board with more room on it. 8'x8' would be nice!

Re: Weathering rust

I used real rust on home made wagon bodies made from rusty baked bean tin. They have been roughly successful. The only issue is they do seem to be too realistic in they are too rusty. They've not quite rusted through yet but I do need to re-attach one of the bodies to the chassis.

Re: Amunitions Factory

I think I would concentrate on the narrow gauge bit. As I've not touched anything scenic yet I'm open to change ideas etc. I did have the plan for a light tramway type line with a tropical island feel rather then a UK or European based ammunitions factory. The thought came to me about changing plans...

Re: Amunitions Factory

If the current layout I'm building wasn't so small! May need some thought. I mean small as I am turning my 7mm scale trains in a Loop in boards of just 2ft wide... Yes, the track plan does show tight curves but it is a lot to fit in 2ft x 7ft! Not impossible as I can model a section of it. Like you ...

Re: Amunitions Factory

Thoughts along the lines of how I could make a small layout combining diesels for the ammunition works and yet allowing my lovely steam locomotives to make an appearance! Mmm. Thought needed!

Re: From Triang scrap, back to life

Well done. Good repair. Also a good upgrade for those motors to get them to pull well is one of the fancy new strong magnets. I've changed the ones on my Hornby Dublo 3 rail items.
The Triang chassis are beautifully hefty.

Re: Alex's ''Hermione Isle'' Locomotive Works

Keep going. Love the models you make. I do something like that myself but in 7mm narrow gauge which use 00 gauge chassis.

Re: A WHOLE NEW Start in 0 16.5!

Those look nice Deltic55. (Sorry I can't see other pics on this thread).
Are they scratch built, RTR conversions or kits?

Re: 0 16.5....New Start!

Hi Whynot. Shame the photographs are no longer working. I would love to see them. I've tried posting pics (Don't use photo bucket) but I've had no success here. I'm on three model sites and only one I've had success in sharing photographs. I'm using a cheap tablet device so it does not seem to have ...
