They look cool. I went on 63601 on the golden oldies gala. You could have a reinactment with 1744 and 63601at meadhampstead. About the Bullieds i have been meaning to get 1 but I haven't got round to it yet. Unluckily I missed a Bullied rebuilt (can't remember which type) for £20!!!!!!!! but i went to get £20 of mum and it was gone!!! :evil: :evil: but it had a chunk out of the front end. I'll probably get one next year as it is GWR 175 so i am only getting GWR (Except Bargins) :D .

From one type of 2-8-0 to another, this is the S160 I'm working on, using a Bachmann Consolidation as a basis I'm making a representation of S160 No 5197, now it isn't going to be 100% accurate but the main features will be there, after just an hours work on the loco this is what it looks like;

As you can see the removal of the domes has created 2 holes, they will be covered but I'm trying to find the best way to build the new dome first.

Just been working on one of my GCR 8K's, the livery is now fully applied, just got the change the saftey valve to a different type in the future and move the step and a few other alterations to make it 100% accurate.

Fabulous looking loco, well done. Lovely livery, very flamboyant.

Thanks Stu, I don't think so, my next castle will be 4084 Aberystwyth Castle, spent a few good times there when going through my teen years.


Hhahaha. being a citizen of a local village around aberystwyth myself, and also a teen. there is alot of night life in the castle. Whatever you think the modern teenagers do, this is the main point of it happening in aberystwyth :D.

The sheen on the boiler top makes the dome look as though Kaiser Bill is about top pop out.

A layout is never finished, it's just a shortage of ideas.

Yep and Yep, it's a modelzone limited edition that has just been released this week, only 2000 of them have been made. The coach is modelled after the pick up nets had been removed.
