  1. The station is looking really good Neal.

    Looks like a lovely layout - would like to see some more pictures!
  3. Sad news indeed. My earliest memory of the meninblack is my Dad telling my older brother to 'turn that racket down'!

    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.
  5. I shall be watching your progress with interest! Always nice to see another GW layout, especially a through station.
  6. The station building (and the Toads) are looking really good. I'm jealous of the space you have!

    A pannier takes on water before the return trip up the branch

    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!

    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!

    Hi Doug, Thanks for the compliment - it's nice to hear that my humble efforts have helped to inspire someone! Jules

    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

    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.
  13. That is one great set of fiddle yards!

    Time for another update! I've had the last week off work, which despite not being able to have our two hotel breaks as planned, it was a pleasant week off work. As well as doing some tasks around the house which we normally don't get the time/can't be bothered with, I have managed to squeeze in a bit of modelling time. First on the bench, picked up at last years Bristol (Thornbury) show, is this old Mailcaoch GW 'Giant'. It is based on the Monster van, but with corridor connections, and internal framing. I have assembled it, and as shown, have performed a few test runs to make sure it negotiates the curves and points. The next couple of pics shown the Giant and Monster together. I now need to do the usual painting and lettering
  15. I have four of them, I have to resist the urge to buy any more! They all run smoothly and do what is asked of them. It is always a joy to catch-up on your layout, I am very envious!

    Hi Robin, According to the instructions with the kit, I believe it is a diagram 361. This was fitted with vacuum brake. Dia 364 was similar, but with a through pipe only. Hope that helps Jules

    Another wagon joins the fleet! It is one of the newly re-released Slaters ex MR fruit vans I think there might be a few more joining it over the coming weeks!
  18. Nice looking coaches, they deserve to be in a train!
  19. I don't know if there are any available 'ready to use', but if you need some made, Railtec Transfers are an excellent source, they made my ones for Mayshill.

    Hi Mikkel, hope you are well. Yes it is the Heljan version. It's a lovely little loco, although I'm sure I attached the lamps vertically!
  21. Really enjoying following progress on Yelverton, superb buildings, and trees!

    Just taken delivery of this little beauty - a birthday present from my Mum! Probably not a usual branch line loco, but it will come out on the 'Sunday specials', when anything goes!
  23. I've also used these as well, they make a big difference. I also fitted the SE Finecast flush glazing, fiddly but makes a big difference
  24. My loading gauge takes a battering too - not sure there is any way around it if you need to uncouple stock etc
