  1. Well I’ve now weathered the wagon and it looks a lot better I think , but what does everyone else think ?
  2. Hi all well with the temperatures slowly starting to plummet it’s getting rather frost bitten in the shed so maybe time to have ago at something I’ve never done before, modelling heavy industry. Now I know I am not going to get a steel works in less that 4ft but if I can capture the essence of it or rather a wagon repair facility in the complex then I will be a happy chap . So I will be using the sms micro in a box boards and a peco loco lift to use as a cassette. But no idea on buildings etc so lots of research will be done and wagons bodged , I have taken great inspiration from Ruston and hi

  11. I’ve recently been faced with a challenge that my younger brother wanted a small shunting layout and on looking for “entry level “ ideas thought that maybe with the influx of great industrial locos at the moment why not make an industrial layout , much like we see the “ train set layouts “ in the magazines etc. Would anybody be interested in this if I were to post progress pictures up on the site ? its about 10ft by 15” built using some old ikea hollow cupboard sides . Code 100 set track and a felix track , dcc and set in the 60s-70s . thanks
  12. Hi I purchased a open gauge grange which seems to be missing a left hand side cab step , anybody know where I might be able to purchase a set ? It is For the Hornby model . But I can fit any kit parts if easier . james
