  1. That's a lovely idea, you can remember your father whilst operating the layout. I may pinch it for the same reason. Best wishes, Martin
  2. Hi, That does look nice, and yes, I think using a wash of Smoke or similar colour on the glazing is the way to simulate tinting. Martin
  3. Hello, I hope someone has in their spares box the two petrol pumps and if possible the small base they fit into from the Wills Station Garage kit. Thank you for reading and regards, Martin
  4. I have a set of the Bachmann e-z track from an "Underground Ernie" train set for the same thing. There's a complete circle here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bachmann-E-Z-Track-12-Sections-Of-18-30-Curves-Complete-Circle/324021624022?hash=item4b71319cd6:g:0BsAAOSwG49d6Cr- for just under £18 including postage. Many other listings of odd straights points, etc. too. Edit: another circle here steel track less than £13: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bachmann-HO-OO-Scale-E-Z-EZ-Track-Circle-Loop-18-R-30deg-Steel-Rails-12pcs/323887321674?hash=item4b6930524a:g:VakAAOSw901dWTDk Martin
  5. I have one, in yellow, mint in an unopened box. Please pm me if you'd like it. Regards, Martin
  6. Lovely photo, very good modelling. I think I'll copy this for next Christmas. Merry Christmas, Martin
  7. That looks very good, really conveys the atmosphere of a cramped canal side yard. Martin
  8. Hi, for modelling pipe you could use a knitting needle, I have got some in the past from a charity shop. I agree that the scene would make a great model railway. Martin
  9. I too saw this layout at Caistor, on Sunday, nice to see some small additions since I last saw it several years ago at a Cleethorpes show. A well made layout with plenty of operational interest, the sector plate worked very well. Martin
  10. Hi, Knightwing do some, the link is to the smallest pack it's available in bigger packs. http://www.knightwing.co.uk/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?cart_id=1571768098.665&product=OO-HO_Building_Kits&pid=184 Regards, Martin
  11. Hi, With that track layout, if you ignore the lower right hand siding, you have an inglenook sidings layout and could use the puzzle rules to give you some entertainment. Just in case you havent seen it: http://www.wymann.info/ShuntingPuzzles/sw-inglenook.html Regards, Martin
  12. Hello, Your local library might be worth a vist as they often have railway modelling books on the shelf you can read there or take home. Some libraries may have copies of railway modelling magazines either on the shelf or in the archive, it's worth asking. Charity shops are also worth looking in for railway modelling books or magazines. Regards, Martin
  13. Hi Carly, Thank you for your reply. As I'm not going to Hornby etc. this offer isn't for me. Martin
  14. Please can we have some clarity around this offer. Is the "goody bag" being sent out to everyone who subscibes via this link? Is the subscription for just the initial 5 issues or does it "autorenew"? Is there a minimum subscription period? Can you cancel your subscription online or via email? I need to know all these things before I entertain this offer. Martin
