LNER is back

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44142258

The East Coast main line is back in Public ownership, with LNER as the branding. So that is LNER, GWR and Southern, LMS next?

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

Hi Ex-Pat - join the window frame masochists club :lol: I have lost count of the number I have made, they are not to terrible, it just gets tedious when you have to make several of the same pattern for one building. I must in future remember to make the buildings around the size of the available win...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Ah! but get the Tardis out this is 1965, agree about the rostering of Irish Elegance doing two runs, but that is just the way that it works out unless I get another loco (not out of the question, I do have an A3 which could swap onto the Waverley jobs, might mix it up once I review the timetable.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

. The last version didn't include any Waverley Route services, this one does! :D Jim Tell me more! Hi Ex-Pat - nothing to get excited about, I have slotted these into the timetable using a spare set of coaches that became available, nothing too prototypical. Times are arrival/departure from Northbr...

Awesome Jim!



I think there is a bit of the Blue Peter going on here - "Now here is one that I made earlier" :wink:

Seriously though - another smashing building, can't wait to see what's next.

Re: BARGAINS!

I've just bought one of the Heljan Class 128 parcel DMUs from Hattons, a well made smooth running bit of kit. Very happy with it and the price. A giveaway for the money, I have one under adaption to power a Hornby Gresley full brake body shell. (This is going to be used as a 'booster' to enable a c...

Re: Paint Stripping

Another liquid that removes paint is Surgical Spirit - I had been using it to remove spider poo (yes that does exist) from a Lima coach roof and loo and behold the grey paint came off and had to be resprayed :D

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Hi all, getting back to normal now, thanks to all who passed on their best wishes. So back in the loft where spring cleaning and patching have been the order of the day. There were a couple of areas where I made minor improvements as I didn't feel it was looking great. One the Northbridge Road Bridg...
