  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Don't tell me.......... unlike 11102/D2202, its not vacuum-fitted........ Disgusting of Market Harborough
  5. It did Microdiesel at Kettering in 2004.... Disgusting of Market Harborough
  6. Less chat, more photos Terry!! All sounds very good! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  7. Chesterfield, as Steve rightly states, I use a sector plate which joins the the 2 loop lines together off scene Disgusting of Market Harborough
  8. Ooh you tease Ada!!! About time this popped up on here! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  9. Having enjoyed Portmahomack, I'm looking forward to seeing this one progress Disgusting of Market Harborough
  10. What Master Jones is trying to say Paul, is that by joining the EMGS you can then purchase RTR EM gauge points made by PECO therefore making the build no different to doing it in OO! The length of the point may be an issue but, if you're that keen on EM, you could easily build your own after all! Just a thought! Disusting of Market Harborough PS The factory scene looks good and the Middy idea sounds interesting too!
  11. Ian Can you stick me down for a couple please.......in for a penny etc etc etc Disgusting of Market Harborough
  12. Anything further to report on this one....its a location with a lot of potential. Disgusting of Market Harborough
  13. I just used either a couple of buildings or sloped the backscene back behind the 'proscenium arch' on Fried Egg Bridge. seemed to work for me....... Disgusting of Market Harborough
  14. My take on parcels- a couple of platforms on the LBSCR side of Victoria. Still unfinished (Surprise surprise!)
  15. On the subject of passenger trains, why not try 'bitza' trains. Run your loco of choice into the platform with the carriage of choice, allow time for your passengers to disembark then propel it back into the run round loop (i.e. the fiddle yard), plonk the loco onto the other end of the train and propel the carriage back into the platform, the secret is not to show its a single coach train by always leaving part of it under the bridge......... Just a thought Disgusting of Market Harborough
  16. Funny, I was just wondering about the spate of Scottish termini that popped up on here, and how they were coming along just this week! This one has worked out very well indeed! Very nice. Disgusting of Market Harborough
  17. Certainly have! In episode 5 of series 1 of Minder (The Bounty Hunter featuring Derek Jacobi as the wrong un) near the end of the episode Terry has cause to jump off of a bridge on the West Way onto a lorry load of cardboard boxes (don't ask). In the background trundling its merry way down the West London Extension line is a mixed freight and, in amongst the presflos, tubes and such, are 2 PVVs. Interestingly it looks like the presflos are carrying Rugby Cement logos. The official Minder website (on which there is a still of said train with the 2PVVs clearly visible) states the episode was fil
  18. Brilliant Steve. Looks like Arun Quay would have done in the 80's!! Cheers mate! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  19. Steve Just had another look through this one, cos I need my mojo kick-starting too Steve! any chance of seeing a pic or two of the full layout? maybe with some 'Speedlink' stock on it? Don't want too much do I!!!! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  20. Good man Al! Look forward to seeing the results! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  21. Good work Chris! Keep us abreast of this AND the O gauge project! Disgusting of Market Harborough
  22. So when are we going to see a pic of you playing with this on a train a la Barbers Bridge then Al? Disgusting of Market Harborough
  23. Did you get any further with this one Chris, or have you returned to the US....... Disgusting of Market Harborough
  24. Only just came across this one. Might I chuck in a few from around this neck of the woods........ Kettering to Loddington. Built to fetch Iron ore down from the Loddington area, the Loddington section closed in the early 1960s but the final section from Kettering to the old Cransley furnaces closed around 1980, Cransley furnaces closed in the early 60s too and was taken over by Cohens, whence it became the iconic scrapyard of the 70s........ Another line from Kettering was the former route to Cambridge. The final section, to Twywell, also remained open until about 1980. The traffic w
