Hi Dan,

I've been dropping into this thread for sometime & I love the way the layout is progressing, these last photos just prompted me to say good work & the whole BR day looked great fun.

But where does everyone get these Loco Headboards from ? I want some for my layout.

Before I go you haven't been into my loft over the night ? That girder bridge in two of your photos look very familar to me... :wink:

Seriously great stuff. :D

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the positive comments. The headboards are from guilplates, email Gareth there at guilplat@globalnet.co.uk for quotes on orders. That girder bridge is a knightwing kit purchased from ebay and built and painted by me, it was going to have trains going over it but i just couldn't fit it in so now it will be a road overbridge when that corner is complete.

Like the standards it is a riddles design and I was short of heavy freight locomotives.

Also it numbered with the BR standards number sequence, and it's a really good at running at slow scale speeds, something you're not familiar with are you Gavin? :lol:

That's going nearly as fast in scale terms as you 28xx goes!! Now I'd not like to be travelling on a 28xx doing 75mph!!!
