Working lights on a Goods Brake Van

A second brake van with lamps at the veranda end. This has been a lot harder as there is so little space on the veranda to get my finger into to position the led. Its' not working yet because I need another flicker free unit.     I also need to touch up the damaged paint and weathering.

Photo update

As promised, I've finally got round to taking a few photos. Dogfish, Crab and Ling in glossy post transfer application but pre-weathering from Cambrian and Chivers kits. Also a pic of the Conflat Clay in the same state and one of the excellent High Level 03 kit. It's moved on since I took this and I've now done both step assemblies. A joy to build. Fiddly, yes but very rewarding.

Cul Uisge - Kyle in 4 feet - Station Building 1

Despite appearances to the contrary, there has been some progress on the layout in between stock building sessions. Today has seen the main section of the station building constructed based on the mockup Here (Old RMweb)   As an idea of scale the station building is around 26 inches long.     The front wall is made from three layers - the centre layer is mounting board with the window and door holes cut (fairly) exactly into it. The back layer is also mounting board but with larger window

Another wall goes on the first building

I know its hardly the most impressive blog entry but I put another wall on my first scratchbuilt building today. I did this one slightly different to the other 2 walls in that I added the supporting wall first and then added the outer shell wall and Quoins.           I added the front piece to the other 3 walls to see what it would look like. I will be cutting out the windows and doors on this in the next week or so. Once the windows and doors are stuck to the front I will then at

LBSCR B4 an LRM kit by Weskie

LBSCR B4 an LRM kit by Weskie   by Weskie   original page on Old RMweb __________________________________________   ??? posted on Mon Mar 24, 2008 8:30 pm   I'm going to blame Andy Y. and the Modeller of the day comp. for starting this new thread. Also the lousy weather we are having over Easter. But it did get me quite eager to do some modelling. So here goes.     This is a London Road Models kit for a LBSCR B4 that I started about a year ago! It's gone together very well so

Some new pictures

Today I made two new pictures with some more life in it. I placed some vehicles on the modules.       In these pictures you could see my Hobbytrain N scale Class 360 diesel shunter at work at Lohr Press   Markus

Midsomer-County / Castle Hill / Queens View / 2mm

Hello from Bavaria!   This is the continuation of the first sequence of ???Midsomer-County???. I have finished the first part of my small British layout. In future I would like to present further completed segments here. My N-gauge layout is displaying a small, rural area of the Great Western Railway. Please find more information on my homepage ???Midsomer-County???:   http://msclayout.npage.de/     Although it is mostly written in German you can see actually ca. 600 images about all

Parkside RCH 5 Plank 12 Ton Wagon - 2

Basic construction is done on the Parkside wagon. I've fitted the Bachmann NEM pocket mounts - took more fiddling than I expected to get the height right. I ended up carving off the vertical projections off the mounts and then cutting back the underframe bracing until the correct height was achieved - silly me for expecting that they would just fit   Here's a pic of the underframe prior to priming     and here's it replendant in red oxide primer     I might keep it this colour as i

Warley - Drive or go by train?

Fingers crossed some where in the post is a ticket for this years show, but before I start getting flustered because it has not arrived I find myself with a greater conundrum, how to get there.   Living in Reading I can get a train direct to Birmingham International, and it takes about the same time as the drive by the time I have got to the station BUT, the ticket for the train is ??40, where as the petrol will cost me around ??20 plus i'm guessing around ??7 - ??10 for the car park.   The

Before and after..

Another quick one whilst I'm at it...   A before and after... the before is from a while back...     Before..   After..   Coming along nicely I reckon, though that union link looks a bit ropey... the perils of a cruel closeup   Yes! Finally! The 'infamous' screw has disappeared! PJH will be happy   JB.

The beginning

A few years ago I spent some time on the Norfolk Broads. Not somewhere you might immediately associate with any modeling potential but one particular stretch of the River Waveny offered up a surprise in the form of Somerleyton & Reedham Swing bridges on the Norwich - Lowestoft line. Somerleyton in particular always stuck with me as a project and I've now decided to do something about it. So, this blog will track my attempts to model this unusual feature of the network in N gauge.   Here i

photos as promised

Shown here is the bracing, including the 44mm X 44mm that goes down the length of the board on both sides. This has proved the most obstructive.     You can also just see the join in the board which is the main reason for all the structure underneath. Although the total size is 8 X 4, this is made four 4 X 2 sheets. I cannot get the 8 X 4 in the car.     Again just to emphasise the point.   You can also see the bus and PM1's in these photo's but more of those later.   Last photo is

Phase Three - An idea

I've had an idea:     The Nissen hut I would envisage as being something like this one: http://www.ingr.co.uk/images/gardrum%20news.jpg   This plan would also solve the problem of the sea join which is an added bonus. I would model the lifeboat station as no longer functional, however, I could add a slipway in front of it and making it operational. Just a question of taste I suppose.   By the way, the infilling is pretty much complete and the castle taking shape. Comments welcome as us

Getting bitten by the Irish bug...

And I'm not talking about a taste for Guiness...still prefer a good quality bitter, I'm afraid. Whilst researching the Irish Rail coaches for the ERG range, I'm really starting to see the appeal of the traction scene over the water and increasing numbers of my former "demo" coaches are now sporting Orange...so far three each of Mark 2d and 3.   I reallylike the look of the De Deitrich Enterprise stock, with the GM-style Driving trailer and the new IR mark 4 coaches with the platypus-esque DVT

A Trip Around The Block

Well, today I decided to take a day off my learning and depressurize - and what better things can there be for people of our mind than roaming the rails?   In addition, my girlfriend went on a short trip to her family in Leipzig today (missing her already, even though she'll return on Friday - any of you know the feeling? ), and before her train came in I first snapped an unexpected TGV POS set coming in from Paris Est...       TGV POS set 4403 - the German class number for these being

Part 4

Hello all,   I've taken the plunge and moved over to this new-fangled environment. I found a few extra photos that I hadn't added to the old place, so I've attached them below. I hope you enjoy.     T1 standing on the shed yard. Igone the cobwebs on the bufferstops!     63462 banks a loaded (with empty wagons!) ore train up the hill to Annfield Plain.     A K1 eases a train of empty hoppers out of the yard and heads off towards South Pelaw.     The same manoeuvre from a dif

My friend the operating chair

Before you think RMweb has become a dental forum, I am referring here to a new chair that gracefully supports my backside during layout operating sessions.     Strangely, neither my wife nor teenage kids have been able to mobilize any enthusiasm for this great find - I guess they have finally given up hope in me. So here it is on RMweb, a place where people are able to appreciate the finer things in life . It is in fact an old hydraulic barber's chair that the founders of my
