  1. Hi Wayne, I think that is really quick but I won't hold you to it! Thanks Ian
  2. Hi Wayne, What is the time scale for you having the full range of turnout kits available in 00 similar to the range that you have available in code 40? Ian
  3. Hi Gordon, Thankyou for getting back to me; I certainly wasn't suggesting that you rip it up and start again ........ that'd be crazy I think I'd be over the moon if I could achieve half of what you have achieved with ET, it's looking superb! Good luck with the reset of the build. Ian
  4. Hi Gordon, Nice to see you building some more S&C, they look fantastic. I haven't got round to building anything for myself yet, I'm still building the house and if that goes much slower we'll be going backwards but enough of that and back to your trackwork, as I say it looks fantastic, 00 gauge SF 16.2mm at the crossings, did you ever consider EM gauge? I'm not having a dig or anything I just interested to know what stopped you going that route. Of course EM gauge would necessitate the adjustment of wheels on your locos and rolling stock but I can't see that fazing you too muc
  5. Hi John, Who's gauges are you using for 83 flatbottom rail in 00SF? Thanks Ian
  6. Excellent .... although I'm not too sure what is meant by "SH duties"? Also, I seem to remember that you are pretty good with a camcorder John, a la 'Bradfield Gloucester Square', it would be nice to see the above movement on video, I'm sure it would give you a welcomed break from ballasting Incidenteally, how is the ballasting going, it's a very big area and how are you doing it, perhaps just flooding the area with pva then sprinkle? best regards Ian
  7. I think it would have been easier to go with Bradfields open roof ........ but then it wouldn't have been Leeds;-) Excellent modelling, well done and keep on giving us the insight to how you are producing these excellent models. best regards Ian
  8. Here's an idea, put the Hornby Dublo in the study and the MiL in the train room ....... there, fixed it! Should I get my coat now?
  9. Norman stopped playing for Leeds many years ago, so although you might get a kicking, you wouldn't be able to class it as a good kicking unless Norman did it! Spurs vs Leeds 2 Jan'21?
  10. Looking very good, John ..... as you say, will be better with a lick of paint but nevertheless it's very impressive!
  11. I think he means his Nephew ....... who, I understand, has just started to draw his pension;-)
  12. Hi Gordon, I am unable to offer any in sight to the workings of ECoS but it occurs to me that a route is selected by signalling and not by turnouts, if the signal is at danger then the route is not set regardless of what position the turnout is set! Considering this, if you are able to plan the signalling then the leds for the route could be incorporated to illuminate only when the signal changes to clear. Just a thought Ian
  13. … and finally I understand the attraction of gardening, a means of getting rid of the soil from the escape tunnel!
  14. Beautiful bird, Sam …. Heron? … who knows? Perhaps both!
  15. Wow, she would certainly give Jessica a run for her money!
  16. Okay, I feel a bit silly; The last time I dropped in there were discussions about Bastille in Paris, now I drop in and see we're talking about Seironim and assummed this must be another French station, the penny's dropped now ............. silly me
  17. Hi John, The canopy is looking good, I remember you building the roof for Bradfield and I was well impressed with that as well. Best Ian
  18. Hi David, thank you for the PM. The scan has a lot of information, not just the track plan but also the design infrastructure, an "How to" it you want which is very interesting. The design instantly made me think of "The Laird's - Bradfield Gloucester Square" albeit at double the length. Once again thanks for the scan Ian
  19. Does anybody have a copy of the Minories track plan?
  20. Are the Hunt Couplings electrically conductive? I think that if they are not conductive then the interior lights and head codes on the trailer coach will not be usable! An alternative may be to use the couplings from the class 101 as discussed here;
  21. Hi John Leeds is looking good! May I ask what do you mean "and some have strengtheners attached", I'm work from a low knowlege base so would appreciate any information. Thanks Ian
  22. That's an excellent idea, also very similar to the solution from Mckinley Railway, here’s a link to the youTube video from Mckinley Railway https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgQvAbusjsw together with the screen shot of the circuit diagram as drawn by J Pilborough
