  1. Following this thread with interest. On holiday in the province in the towards in the early 00's, saw a pair flying through Lisburn on a special from Dublin to Londonderry for the Apprentice Boys parade, and another on a Londonderry service on that skewed level crossing on the way to Belfast International. Markle DVD NIR Then and Now Vol. 1 has some excellent coverage of the class. Which Mk2's do you use as donor's.
  2. A beautiful part of the world. Could have struggled on like the St Combs branch in BR days.
  3. Picked it up in Newcastle this morning
  4. I've a video of them double heading a freight on the Waverley route.
  5. Apologies if this is the wrong area, of if it's the sort of thing that shouldn't be in RMweb. The art supply company I use for my hobby of drypoint printing has just e-mailed me details of an aerosol can that you can fill with any medium and you can re pressurise. Maybe useful for those of you that don't like airbrushes. https://www.lawrence.co.uk/jacquard-youcan-refillable-air-powered-spray-can.html
  6. Arrived at Newcastle WH Smiths this morning
  7. There was a book produced, Backworth, An illustrated history of the mines and railways by Chilton Iron Works which has everything you need. Superb volume, loads of maps, plans and photographs. My grandad and a couple of my uncles worked at Eccles pit, and my dad was born at the terrace of houses at C pit.
  8. Not seen it in any shops on Tyneside yet
  9. Is the Ideas for layouts magazine a new one or is it a previously published one
  10. In the Newcastle Smiths this morning. More than the three that arrived last month as well
  11. we received two, only two, at 55 deg North (Newcastle Smiths) over a fortnight ago.
  12. Read the first eleven, got them all through the library. Can I also suggest the Jim Stringer novels by Andrew Martin, set in edwardian times.
  13. Three 170's sat in Heaton this morning presumably waiting for a move south
  14. What version of studio are you using. In Studio 2 I had a similar problem with dxf files from Autocad. If you goto the drop down menu 'Edit', select Preferences, goto the import tab and in the 'Open' option select centered or as-is rather than fit to page. Hope this helps.
  15. Reduced live and dynamic loads result in lighter structures resulting in cost savings. There are little to no cost savings in the tunnelling of the tubes but the station costs are considerably smaller as the cavern for the station is considerably smaller. Some sample figures in the public domain: Standard rail budget cost $10m/mile, High Speed $100m/mile, Hyperloop $70m/mile.
