  1. Nice to see this re-starting. If you could extend the line past New Engine yard a bit it should run right past my house!
  2. Hi Mikkel, Thanks for the comments. One of the reasons I cut back the canopy was that if a single wagon was shunted in, it could be tricky to uncouple it! The other reason was that I'm not sure how common (if at all) a flat roof spanning the whole track would be. The roof vent was actually very easy to do. As described way back in the thread, the main dairy building was cobbled together from a couple of Airfix/Dapol engine shed kits, so the roof vents are just using the left over bits from the kit. Why I didn't do this when I first made it I don't know!
  3. It's about time for another periodic update from slumbering Mayshill! I have been doing some changes to the dairy area - I was never completely happy with the layout, it didn't seem to fit quite right. So I have had a bit of a re-arrangement and modification. The existing arrangement looked like this: The new arrangement looks like this: I have: 1. Cut the canopy back so it covers the loading platform and about half of the wagon to be loaded 2. Rotated the building that w
  4. Hi, I'm afraid I have no information on 5812 and its allocation or history - I can't even remember why I chose that particular locomotive! Recently I have upgraded the loco with new wheels, and changed the 'G W R' to 'Great Western'. Unfortunately, one of the plunger pickups has failed, so the running has deteriorated a bit - I need to try and find some replacements. I probably also need to add some washers to the new wheels, as they are a lot finer than the Airfix originals so there is a lot more sideplay.
  5. I think the before and after shots show a good amount of progress, given the size of your layout etc. I wish I had that amount of space to use, although I think my progress would be even slower!
  6. I've gone all early Dart Valley Railway... 1638 in DVR colours Along with preservation chums 4555 and 4588 On 1638, I have painted the handrails green (bunker, cab and tank sides), added lamps and coal and shortened the nasty front coupling. Etched plates and crew are on order

    Lovely station building - I shall look forward to seeing the rest of the layout develop

    Looks like a lovely layout - would like to see some more pictures!
  10. Sad news indeed. My earliest memory of the meninblack is my Dad telling my older brother to 'turn that racket down'!
  11. Some lovely scenes there
  12. Hello They are all code 75 small radius points. I would have liked to have used medium (or even better, large) radius points, but I did really have the space.
  13. I shall be watching your progress with interest! Always nice to see another GW layout, especially a through station.
  14. The station building (and the Toads) are looking really good. I'm jealous of the space you have!
  15. A pannier takes on water before the return trip up the branch
