  1. Have you tried Minehead again Rob. I seem to remember Peafore yard being there in the past....... Disgusting of Market Harborough
  2. On the subject of Dapol 16 tonners- I found that on some of the ones I attempted to build that the baseplate had warped, probably due to the age of the mould. Simple answer- bang a Red Panda chassis under it and voila a vac-fitted 16 tonner! Use the old Airfix moulding for the unfitted stuff as the Span Yard man implied! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  3. Any further progress Alan? I know you said that updates would be a bit 'feast or famine', but I'm really enjoying your layout progress! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  4. Steve I believe the bottom one is Dowlais Cae Harris, The one above is Welshpool (Welshpool and Llanfair), the one above THAT I believe is Hele & Bradnich, the one above that is definitely Snape Maltings (I should know that one!) and the top one I haven't a clue!! HTH Disgusting of Market Harborough
  5. Sad News. Always enjoyed a chat with John about football and trains when we met up. RIP mate. DT
  6. You and me both Andi Sadly missed......10 years seems like 10 minutes. Disgusting of Market Harborough
  7. Exactly. But it eradicates the need for another board by putting the fiddle yard at the back rather than at one end...... Disgusting of Market Harborough
  8. Can I lob a spanner in the works Ralf. How about something like this, based on the Piano line, which featured in the Railway Modeller in the early 60s. The line running off the middle of the loop line goes into your fiddle yard. My daughter built something similar, called Stockerston, when she was ten!! We had a lot of fun with it although we only used 03 shunters on it, it did a few exhibitions too!! Just a thought Disgusting of Market Harborough
  9. Just picked up on this one Alan, its a bit wonderful is this!! Noticed about 10 posts back that you have 3 wagons on the layout. A method I've used, with a reasonable degree of success, is to propel 2 wagons in and then swap them with any 2 wagons on the layout. There are 6 different combinations, so a throw of a dice would dictate which of the 6 'moves' is made. If you have 2 wagons in one siding and you have to get the one nearest the buffers you can get into a right b*gg*rs muddle trying to sort things out! Just a thought! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  10. Don't tell me.......... unlike 11102/D2202, its not vacuum-fitted........ Disgusting of Market Harborough
  11. It did Microdiesel at Kettering in 2004.... Disgusting of Market Harborough
  12. Less chat, more photos Terry!! All sounds very good! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  13. Chesterfield, as Steve rightly states, I use a sector plate which joins the the 2 loop lines together off scene Disgusting of Market Harborough
  14. Ooh you tease Ada!!! About time this popped up on here! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  15. Having enjoyed Portmahomack, I'm looking forward to seeing this one progress Disgusting of Market Harborough
