Why not

one way with your earliest modelled loco/s like "Lorna Doone"

and then on the return, the two newest of engines, like 92220 and 60163?

Progress all over again :P

Just a thought,
Ben
I thought I was right! Turns out I wasnt...

Re: Windmill hill steam railway! New stock

Postby manormadman » Tue Oct 26, 2010 3:12 pm

7802 has been purached from the SVR, but the SVR painted it into GWR Green to match their collett chocy and creams.
Reality
I got 7802 from rail-ex south west. Mum paid so i've now got 7802 and 75005 for christmas! I got 3 points, 4 bits of streamline, plastic cutters, track cutters and fishplates.
Both questions are still open from the last post.
Cheers Seb :D

Windmill Hill steam railway: Kits and Galas

Postby manormadman » Thu Nov 18, 2010 4:50 pm

Hi Guys
10th anniversary gala line up (bold is visitors):
1436, 3205, 7034, 5322, 6167, 5786, 4920, 6624, 3738, 4472, 7823, 27xx, 32106, 1340, 2847, 4160, 3440, 7802, 75001, 75005

I've practically finished the timetable, but i've still got to do the working timetable. The visitors are from my mate Jamie's layout. I have made a few kits or made ones i made when i was little better. I've basically bummed up an airfix/dapol 9f (Awaiting restoration), stirling single (Under restoration), Bullied (Under restoration) and standard 4 2-6-0 (under going motion repairs). Also a large praire (static) and made a wooden mink and finished off a ratio station building.
cheers Seb
ps sorry but there isn't a slot for more engines. I may have to drop some locos. :D
Cheers Seb
