  1. 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
  3. The station is looking really good Neal.

    Looks like a lovely layout - would like to see some more pictures!
  5. Sad news indeed. My earliest memory of the meninblack is my Dad telling my older brother to 'turn that racket down'!
  6. Some lovely scenes there
  7. 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.
  8. I shall be watching your progress with interest! Always nice to see another GW layout, especially a through station.
  9. The station building (and the Toads) are looking really good. I'm jealous of the space you have!
  10. A pannier takes on water before the return trip up the branch
  11. Thanks Johnster for that detailed account of how you do your weathering. I've done quite a lot of the last part of Step 6, just need to work on the steps preceding it!
  12. The only reason is is because I haven't really got round to it! I have nothing against weathering, but it is not really a skill I have mastered yet. I have 'weathered' a few items, mainly wagons. So far, I have only done r-t-r items, nothing I have kit built!
  13. Hi Doug, Thanks for the compliment - it's nice to hear that my humble efforts have helped to inspire someone! Jules
  14. Here are a few more random pictures of a recent play operating session 3202 waits to leave with the Monster and Giant 4588 arrives with a goods train, does a bit of shunting and then departs
  15. Hi, The majority of the locos are from Bachmann, 4 * small praires, a 57xx, 64xx, 2251 etc. There is also a Hornby 52xx which is a lovely runner, but a bit big for a small branchline terminus. I also have a couple of Airfix 14xx and one of the Hattons/DJM 14xx, but they are all indifferent runners so don't see much use. Most of the locos I use can be seen in the previous pages of this topic.
