Windmill hill steam railway! 00 gauge preserved railway

Postby manormadman » Fri Apr 16, 2010 8:15 pm

Hi, in 2001 I got a thomas train set. Since then i've got loads more locos, track and buildings. My model railway is based on a preserved main line in somerset, from Hatch Junction-Ashill-Windmill hill halt-Broadway,which was SR/GWR. I am a BIG GWR manor fan and i have 15 Mainline/Bachmann manors. I have recently glued some scatter down. some pics will follow soon. also feel free to comment and give me advice, because I am not very experienced. also there will be a track plan here when i work out how to do xtrakcad curved points (hornby). Can anyone help me :?: :D
Cheers Seb

hi
i also started with a thomas the tank engine set back in 1999. If you want to use hornby track in XtrkCAD, then click on the link and scroll down until you find the hornby 00 track download link. NRM guide to XtrkCAD

Also welcome to the Forum

The link works but the hornby OO/HO buttons don't work! I am presently renaming 6002 King william IV to 6024 KEI. On Sunday I got a new wagon with Yeovil railway centre on it, Which is a small standard gauge railway which is 1/2 a mile long it has a 0-4-0 called pectin if you r ever in somerset it is a great attraction with mini railway. brake van vid here and website.
