I have the "Oliver Bury" B1 in late crested BR and an LNER version!

You were very lucky not to have any problems in the "goo" department! It's pot luck with this model!

My BR version is fine and the LNER one is after I had to clean it out! :wink:

Sad news :-(

Postby redline41190 » Tue Feb 05, 2008 2:13 pm

Well I've got sad news today :cry: The layout has gone into a temporary (I hope) stasis. I'm having some problems on the home front... parents... blah blah blah. So i dont know how much work i'll be doing on it anytime soon. Im also thinking of selling the Manor and Prairie to finance the purchase of a Hall, the DCC one. It will eventually become aDCC sound which will be amazing. I'll keep you updated!

cheers

Jeremy

P.s. I might make my narrow gauge side trip soon... :lol:

Well since the layout is in staisis. I plan on moving the layout to the shelf where it was prior and building a small shed scene or station scene. I've decided on my last few purchases in OO scale.

1 Bachmann Hall Class "Guild Hall" (The dcc one...)
and
5 MK1s in WR chocolate and cream

so this will be the consist...
5952 "Cogan Hall" 4-6-0 Hall Class. Late crest. Hacksworth Tender.
BR Mk1 BCK brake corridor composite in BR(WR)
BR Mk1 SK 2nd corridor in BR (WR)
BR Mk1 SK 2nd corridor in BR (WR)
BR Mk1 FK corridor 1st in BR(WR)
BR Mk1 BG full brake in BR(WR)

a true GWR/WR consist :D
how does it sound? good? oh and im going to sound chip the Hall with a SWD chip :D that'll be amazing!

They are very nice. I love the close coupling on them. My pullman Mk1 is an absolute treat! the little lamps really set it off :D I need to save the cash flow though if im going to be buying all of the said things. :lol: that swd chip is about $160! but im sure its worth every penny :)

And now i have to add one more thing to my list of suff to be bought... :lol:

I NEEEEED!!! one of these:

Image

I love the Std 4 Chimney on it :D it looks soooo much better! So sometime in August/September 31860 will give its deflectors to 31411 so that it can become "Rising Star" and 31860 will remain without deflectors...

But the Hall comes first... as well as the Mk1s... and the layout... :lol:

btw... did up a price list for all that i want...
Hall- £68
the 4 MK1s- £67
£135---> $270 :x. Ugh i need to work more... :lol:

and the N Class (but thats mucho later..) £61 ----> $122
