  1. Hi Jeff, Yes layout substantially complete, oo gauge code 75 live frogs, pretty much all rtr locos and stock but I do build my own buildings using Scalescenes techniques. I do have a white metal loco kit (DJH D20) on the go but I'm struggling with it a bit. 3 bridges and two viaducts (not a patch on yours) and gradients which defeat odd locos pulling any sort of load. All good fun though. Regards Brian
  2. Despite having been pre-warned this news was coming, it's still such an emotional shock. Like many others, I only new Gordon through RMWeb and much admired his first class modelling - such a shame that ET will not now be completed by its creator. As I get older, having recently celebrated my three score and twelve, I am very conscious that no one lives forever but it is always difficult to accept this fact when hearing such news. It's not the first time I have lost a RMWeb friend and no doubt it won't be the last. Still always sad and difficult to accept. Deepest sympathy and heart felt condolences to Gordon's family and close friends. Brian.
  3. Not the news we were expecting. So sad. Best wishes to Gordon and his family and friends.
  4. Gordon, I shared the news of your predicament with my wife and we both send our best wishes to you for a speedy recovery. Take it easy when you get home and just sit and watch those trains go round. Looking forward to hearing about ET progress in the fullness of time. You are in our prayers my friend. Best Regards, Brian (and Mrs D).
  5. Hi Jeff, this is brilliant stuff, very evocative. You mention recycling the dry stone walls from your previous layout(s) but I can't remember what happened to the previous viaducts (whose construction I followed avidly at the time, and subsequently made a poor imitation). Can you remind me please. Apologies if this has recently been answered - it's the age you know. Please tell me they didn't go in the skip. Regards, Brian.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  11. I just love the curvy track plan. Have you applied some cant to increase the realism?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
