  1. Apologies if this has already been posted but these rails are behind the Theatre Royal in Richmond. North Yorkshire. They were used to move scenery between the store and the stage.
  2. Lovely modelling, the philosophy behind your modelling must be very satisfying on completion. A different species for the modern image modeller https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/crabs-metro-video-posted-crabs-10081881
  3. I've picked up about 10 of them, they sell them for £1.99 out of Home Bargains. What started as a silly gift from my son has ended up with narrow gauge rabbit warren with Shorty type Dapol railbus chassis and a little garden or should that be back yard) layout around my Belfast sink pond. Great fun. Love your little wagons, I think I''ll give that a go.
  4. 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.
  5. A beautiful part of the world. Could have struggled on like the St Combs branch in BR days.
  6. Picked it up in Newcastle this morning
  7. I've a video of them double heading a freight on the Waverley route.
  8. 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
  9. Arrived at Newcastle WH Smiths this morning
  10. 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.
  11. Not seen it in any shops on Tyneside yet
  12. Is the Ideas for layouts magazine a new one or is it a previously published one
  13. In the Newcastle Smiths this morning. More than the three that arrived last month as well
  14. we received two, only two, at 55 deg North (Newcastle Smiths) over a fortnight ago.
  15. 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.
