Hi siquelme,

The class 423 sounds great, and to be honest it is on my hit list :wink:

Thanks

It was a cold day and all the windows were misted up !!!! Don't you think the bubblecars looked 'cute'

Shaftsbury to Oxford-----interesting route.

Looking good, but you really need a filthy dirty 33 in blue with large bits of red or green primer showing through, dragging some equally dirty oil tanks from Fawley through your station, other than that....Love it :D

Hello manna,

You obviously have also experienced the wonders of the 121 in real life :lol:

Shaftesbury to Oxford :shock: and only £5 return on the Network card :lol: no this destination will be changed!!!!

You are right I do need a under-loved blue 33 with some beat up stock 8) this will help break up the sea of red white and blue, I will see what I can do.

All the best

Hi all,

Just a small update, board 2 has been constructed this board is the same length as board 1 8ft long by just under 2ft wide, last night me and BIG DUNC lined them both up (we took over the house :D the wife understood :evil: ) the reality of how much work lies ahead has just sunk in :shock: the joy's of modeling :wink:

Just a couple of pictures...

My son Liam looking on as BIG DUNC carries out all the work :lol:

I will keep you all posted on the updates of board 2,

Many thanks, all the best Darren NSE DAZ

Great work from both of you. Looking forward immensely to the work going into board 2. If it's anything like board 1 it will be top drawer.

Hi Chris,

I also hope it turns out as good as board 1 as alot of what is on that board was not planned I just done what I felt was right at the time :?

Thanks for your comments

Hi Peter,

That's right on this board the track level will be raised up so I can model embankments, timings on this board is hard to say as a rough guide board 1 has taken just over a year but to be fair this is quite a busy board as board 2 is more set in the country laying fields should not take that long :lol: but you never know?

Many thanks

Probably a silly question, but im assuming you are going to have a transition from station to countryside?
