Excellent back scene, is it knocked up by you or procured from elsewhere :?:

It's a German backscene made by Auhagen, but I think it might be discontinued.

It's formed of 5 sheets measuring a total length 330cm and 47 cm in height. Although a german scene, it looks very much like English countryside.

Good stuff Mark. What ballast do you use?

Isn't ballast much of a muchness? I've used an unbranded big big bag, and my Italian accomplice used a stickyback ballast roll (made by Javis I believe) for larger areas.

I've managed to get my colleague to join the forum.
He goes by the name of "Juicerail".

A back scene, some greenery, and lighting has now been added. It's now been nearly a year and a half in the making, but is expanding nicely and attracting a fair bit of interest from onlookers

More pics more pics :lol:

Used to go Jetskiing in Herne Bay. Used to have to catch the train down after rubgy training in the morning. Hated the walk to the beach, just wanted to be there without the walk :lol:

PS, do you have any troubles with that C166 Connex as i've heard about the motor being poor on them? Is it DCC or DC?

Excellent stuff

Love the Fleche D'Or-esque 'Spam Can' and VSOEs :wink:

Very nice indeed. I like the 3rd pic with the bus and the station lights.

Must agree with Tim about the Spam Can. I've never really liked them, but recently, I'm becoming more fond of them. I wish there were more SR locos in N gauge.

Keep up the progress,

John.

South Eastern / NSE / Connex 466

Postby Herne Bay railman » Thu Mar 22, 2007 10:48 pm

We now have a limited edition South Eastern model which fits in with our company perfectly. :)
They run on DC.

The trains look lovely, but sadly the motors are lousy. The manual says they have a running life of 150 hours. We tend not to run them too much as we've burnt out quite a few motors. They don't like bends or running at slow speed. There is another problem too, the pick-ups squeal dreadfully as they rub on the inner wheels.

The Thanet Belle Pullman cars

Postby Herne Bay railman » Thu Mar 22, 2007 11:10 pm

The Pullman cars have boards on the roof "The Thanet Belle - Victoria, Margate, Ramsgate" and came as part of a limited edition set along with the Battle of Britton "Biggin Hill" loco. I won it in an ebay auction for £115. The coaches are the non-lit type with the old style couplings, but I don't mind that as they hold the track much better over those hornby point.
