      Welcome back Jack! ;-)

  2. Thanks Lash and joejab95. I hope to add some more pictures soon.
  3. Thanks Tom. Should have another update soon. Jack
  4. Those 504's were always covered in graffiti, especially when they were in the later orange/brown GMPTE livery. Thanks lilchris, should have some updates coming up soon. Jack.
  5. Ranger, there's some pretty big changes going on there at the minute. I look at YouTube uploads of the station to get ideas for the layout. Matthew, thanks. I did toy with the idea but I wanted something very modern, especially with new releases in RTR northern rail, such as the class 150 / 144 and Metrolink trams. I plan to have some DRS class 47/8's for the shopex workings. Jack.
  6. Manchester Victoria North end terminus has been redeveloped over the years, since 1992 the Manchester - Bury line was changed to a light rail tram system, from a side pick-up 3rd rail line using class 504 EMU's. These days M5000 bombardier trams are used with T68a trams, serving the streets of Greater Manchester, Piccadilly, Manchester airport etc. The model: My attempt at recreating the prototype is almost complete, the scenic section itself is a single baseboard of 4ft x 2ft and a same size fiddle yard. The layout uses DCC, EM gauge SMP track with no turnouts. 4 platforms and a road bridge. Three of the platforms are served by Northern Rail, services to Leeds, Selby. The 4th platform being the end of the line for the Bury - Victoria Metrolink service (in reality this continues into the surrounding streets) The layout is portable and fits in the boot of the car, with a mortgage on the horizon, ease of transport was a high priority. Thanks for looking. Jack
  7. Good evening Mike. Very nice St.Agnes your building. As Stu has said captured the atmosphere very well. i will be sure to pop into the museum and have a look at the layout, during the spring. progress on my version of st.Agnes is not as rapid im afraid, but slowly getting there bit by bit. Also, glad to see you have started your own thread on RMweb, and will look forward to seeing some progress. all the best, Jack. NB: look at the cornwall railway society's website for lots of brilliant photographs of the branchline.
  8. Glad she is on the mend Bill. all the best Jack
