  1. Wickes used to sell packs of self adhesive cork tiles. They are a decent thickness and cut neatly with a good Stanley knife. I always lost patience with the roll cork. Far to flimsy to work with.
  2. Thanks for all the comments. Finally getting into RMWeb! Nothing done this weekend as I've been far to busy. May have a day trawling some images and expanding on my plans tomorrow. I have a 5ft by 9inch board in the shed that hopefully has survived the leaking roof. Narrower than my ideal size but can live with that for the extra length. It needs using and justifys the effort plus its one less thing in our overcrowded shed. I was however browsing some other threads on here late in the week. Perhaps a single Comet kit for the passengers? Have good weekend all. Lidl do some smashing real ales for those with taste. Cheers!
  3. Kindle keyboard having a mad evening! Given up editing my previous post. Will havde to publish as is. You get the jist.
  4. Thanks David. I like what you have done with the plan. Looks very good with the longet siding at the front of the layout. I had always thought that even the small prairies would dwarf a small layout and look out of place. with the whole era thing, I was opting for a run down ex GWR branch in the hands of 14xx. Something along similar lines to the Culm Valley. Avoiding gthe old GWR cliche was an initial thought but Im actually quite drawn to 1930's to mid 40's era. Kit built stock being a patient way of waiting out the winter.o I was thinking last nhight that a discrete exit from the layout after the trailing point by the station could be something to bear in mind turning this plan into a through run instead of an end of the line. Keeping options open for a second fiddle yard at least. Neither fiddle yards need be more than a fewc short cassettes. Thanks again for the Anyrail drawing.
  5. When I work out how to add a picture to my blog this will flow better. Nevertheless, the plan allows for one b set coach and a pannier to fit comfortably within the platform with enough room for a mixed passsenger freight working. Maybe even a fruit D or horsebox perhaps. Freight can consist of three wagons plus toad brake van, open coal/merchandise and cattle. The plan needs a water tower of some sort, suitable yard crane and thoughts about what can take up the front. a little effort with the viewing side could allow a slight embankment. House at the end by the crossing could be a farm building or perhaps a small public house for the thirsty fireman.
  6. brief interlude of other scales and I am back to the beginning. eBay bargains and the inevitable searches that pass a Sunday evening. I have recently been passed a rather nifty track plan that at 4x1ft is perfect for a shelf layout. Baseboard provided by a Swedish manufacturer just down the road, stock around and about the place...this will be a very quick project creating minimal mess (Wifey request!), be cheap to pull off and not fill our humble abode with trestles tables,lengths of O gauge track or comments of "When did i get that and why?" I need something to run some modified stock. The priority being some reworked Airfix b sets.

  13. Hello, Wondering if some of you knowledgeable gents would help me a bit. I've always modelled British Railways but more nowadays I'm finding myself quite drawn to the idea of doing some foreign. Over the years Ive visited France, Portugal, Germany and Italy but theres something about the French system that attracts me so naturally, I would like to get on with some French railway modelling. The only problem, in total honesty, is that I haven't got a clue about anything about French Railways. I have a nice Acho set with a BB16 electric (think that's right?) but I would love to do a layout. I have room for a small HO layout and a board from san abandoned n gauge project of 5x1 ready to use. Thinking along the lines of a small inglenook with station. Something rural and simple. I love the look of the Picasso and Bugatti railcars. No idea what period that puts me in! Cheers all David.
  14. I bet Fiona has a superb vintage monocle you could borrow!
