  1. There follows a short video of my J67/1. This is a sofar un-numbered early BR loco. Speaking of numbers, I would be hugely grateful if anyone can provide a suitable number or point me in the direction of finding one. Regards, Brian.
  2. Hmmm, very strange. Certainly didn't post it three times. I did send it from my Android phone though, not from the usual Windows laptop or Chromebook. I still don't fully understand why different "devices" behave differently. No axe to grind about the land form colour, just curious. Regards, Brian.
  3. What a transformation, really great. I also paint my scenic plaster land form brown but others I know paint their's green - please discuss fellow followers :-) Regards Brian.

  6. I just love the curvy track plan. Have you applied some cant to increase the realism?
  7. It's not often I get emotional on RMWeb but we are, some of us, of a certain age and my heart therefore goes out to Eastwood Town's builder at this time. Fingers duly crossed and prayers sent, and of course all the best wishes to Gordon's family.
  8. Shamefully, I've only just discovered your thread. Excellent layout, really quite exquisite, you must be very pleased with it. Spa Valley is not too far from me although I'm in Essex and I've never visited the railway so there might now be two reasons to visit. Great stuff. Regards, Brian.
  9. Fantastic stuff Jeff. I am not at all familiar with the DAS material you are using but is there not a primer of some sort that would have served? Regards, Brian
  10. Your soldering, wiring and mimic panels are immaculate and you should be very pleased. Mine are nowhere near this standard. However, I offer an idea for your consideration that you can install them either fully or partially on the layout inside buildings as I have done. To demonstrate what I am suggesting I attach the following pics which should explain all. The small panel "departures" controls the colour light signals and is mounted on the baseboard edge. The larger mimic panel partially overlaps the layout and is hinged at the front which together with removable bui
  11. Prompted by the article in the March "Hornby Magazine", I purchased the J67/1 body. I wanted to source a Dapol/Hornby Terrier chassis but found that no Dapol Terriers could be found on the usual auction site and there weren't too many Hornby Terriers to be found either but I did manage to "win" a Hornby BR version but I wouldn't call it a cheep purchase at £51 + £5 postage, but I might get some cash back for the Terrier body. It really is a 5 minute job to swap bodies on the Hornby chassis and the chassis is a decent runner. Here are the assembly pics.
  12. The aforementioned Bachmann Class 24 video has now been uploaded and can be seen here.... Regards, Brian.
