I think Metcalfe should sponsor me though :twisted:

So far the build requires

1. .. .. Coal stage
2 .. . . . Viaducts
2. . . .. Engine sheds
1 . . . . Pack of red brick card

Not much chance of that though :!:

They have not responded to an email 10 days ago about a missing sheet from one of the viaduct packs

Hi there.. Looking good so far.. Just incase you're interested I have several sheets of brick card and a goods shed that I am not requiring. Any use for you seeing as you are using Metcalfe stuff.... Possibly a few other bits and peices like part walls and roof trusses... Let me know..

Amendment: Also got roof slates, tarmac sheets and loads of glazing from many different kits...

Jas :D

Very kind of you Jas

I will let you know if I need:

additional brick sheets
goods shed.
tarmac sheets

I seem well fixed for the above.

Glazing sheets - I will use Scalescenes as they are suitably atmospheric.
Roof trusses - I am building timber replacements. You can just see the first trial one in the final photograph posted today
Roof slates - definitely Scalescenes re-roofing job. See coaling shed on page 1

Metcalfe part walls however could be useful I will PM tomorrow with my address for posting while I am in Glasgow.

Once again your offer is very kind.

No worries AJ... They no real use to me and would either end up binned or lost in a centuries old layer of dust... Just let me know in pm if there anything specific you might need as I could have much more kicking about yet!!! :D
