Ah! Thanks for that! I couldn't find anything in my Ubuntu 7 Synaptic Package Manager, but the software seems to look alright. (I thought I'd use some confusing lingo to mess up all you windows users :wink:)

Work Continues after a week long lull in construction whilst I played with my toys :twisted:

The two 2' x 4' Modules are complete and boarded up:

And I've started work on the more complex modules, the odd bit at the end of the picture is to allow the trackbed of the lower branch line on the plan to sink to the lower 2' level:

Thanks!

Due to BT being an absolutely incompitent bunch (no 'fence to anyone who works for them, but you need to sort out your customer coms!) and having no internut for a week, I've made some kits at last!

The Boards Arn't finished yet. The only change to them is that I've attached the Oddly shaped section in place. Other than that, theres been little progress :(

But things are definatly taking shape, I should be ordering the track soon :D

The viaduct wins it for me, looks brilliant. Nice building works there mate.

Thanks :D

Metcalfe Kits build better IMHO, but they don't have the mysterious detail of the Superquick kits. The Metcalfe kits look alright, but a little toylike sometimes. The colour of there red brick always seems a little bit too pink. I prefer Superquick Kits, partly due to the retro style packaging!

Not much progress recently. I went to a model shop today and picked up a 2nd hand Skaledale N Gauge Loco Shed that looks supurb for the 009 Line. I also got some other goodies and have sprayed up my Airfix HS. Trident 1C (Doubt any of you give a monkies 'bout this!)

Yeah, I'm constantly being tempted by the good things I hear about Metcalfe, but that bright pink brickwork keeps putting me off. I far prefer the Superquick grimy brown - looks far more convincing.

If superquick did a viaduct in a similar size, I'd be a proud owner of it!

I like the look of the new coaling stage that they're bringing out, I reckon I'll have to get that!

Likewise, I keep telling myself its going to be grossly out of scale on my layout and that Ferryhill didn't have one anyway, but it still has this "must have" feel to it...
