Re: PowerHaul for mainland Europe

Still basically ugly!!, Looks as though someone has taken a class 67 and morphed it with a class 70!

Re: Dockside Intermodal Container Depot

Superb work there, lovely detail!! The Scalescenes range has been one of the best additions to the modellers arsenal for a long long time, but it takes a good modeller to get the best out of them, kep up the good work.

Gateside and Northbridge - Northbridge 'Box Complete!

Hi all - the guttering was delivered yesterday morning so as the better half went out I got going with the plumbing this morning. I used thin copper and aluminium tubefrom Paisley Model Centre for the down pipes and .240 half round styrene strip for the gutters, supported by other bits of microstrip...

Re: DRS 66 & Blue Circle Cement at Aberdeen

Nice Photographs Dave - the one of the tunnel mouth is interesting, if you did an exact model of that and showed it to someone who was not familiar with the original they would probably criticise you for getting it wrong!! I took a photograph of this tunnel mouth in Toulon, France which also looks a...

Guttering!!

Does anyone know a cheap and easy way to make gutters, I can buy packets of Ratio, but it works out expensive when you have a large building, I have tried cutting plastic tube, straws etc but nothing seems to work.

Any help appreciated.

Re: St Enoch Glasgow and others B&W Pics

Hi all - spotted another location, the second photograph is Edinburgh Princes Street. I have posted a link on the Scot-Rail enthusiasts site to see if we can complete the list of locations, the burnt out signalbox and the third from last location have stumped me so far. EDIT: - on a roll now, got an...

Re: Looking for railway arches, plastic or card

You download a set of A4 pdf files, you will need a good quality printer to print off the files, the paper copies are then stuck to card and cut to shape. I have used several of these kits and find them excellent value for money. (The colour laser printer at my work takes a hammering early in the mo...

Re: St Enoch Glasgow and others B&W Pics

1/4 million passengers used that station every week.....and they shut it. Have you ever heard anything so insane as that? Actually it made a lot of sense, once steam was eliminated, everything could run into Glasgow Central without any reduction in services and meant better connections for passenge...

Re: St Enoch Glasgow and others B&W Pics

Smashing set of photogrpahs there, we start at GLasgow St Enoch as you say, then we have the A4 at Aberdeen, followed by a couple at Glasgow Buchanan Street (I could recreate the second one). Next one I think is Carlisle(?) then Glasgow Central, back to Carlisle. DOn't know where the derelict signal...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - A signalbox for Northbridge

Latest project I have been working on has been a signalbox for Northbridge. As this is the "Edinburgh" end of the layout my original idea was to do a model based on Waverley West, but I didn't think that it would work as Waverley was signalled with colour light signals since 1936. I had a ...
