    Hi my main interest is narrow gauge railway modelling mainly the Irish ngr's 00n3 but also 7mm /14mm gauge appeals.
    My main heritage railway is the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway in Devon.

  1. If you can track down a copy of modelling the Irish Narrow gauge by David Lloyd, you will have all of his drawings, see eBay as they often come up on there. Colin
  2. Hi Brian I am sure you have the likes of the old Dart Valley Railway at Buckfastleigh or even the likes of Launcston Steam Railway may be able to help you out, there are a few modellers at the later worth giving them a ring. If not give the 009 society a ring as they sell model railway bits for members, recently they have had a few collections given to them to sell you end up with some cash and the world of modelling gets you unwanted items. Another place to try would be Rails of Sheffield as they sell second hand models. Colin Rainsbury
  3. Hi Guys I need some help with this one. I have started to gather all the bits I need for the Irish NCC / Donegal 3ft gauge Boat Train that at one point ran from Larne to Ballymenia most of the kits are from Worsley works and one of them is from Comet coaches. Now the issue I have is I can't find anyone who produces the D shaped door vents for LMS coaches in 4mm scale, now before I start to experiment and try to cast them up myself I was wondering if anyone knew of a supplier for such items or something I could used on my models that would not look out of place. I think I have most of the other bits I need such as T handles and Door hinges, but it is just the vent at the top of the doors which is bugging me at the moment Regards Colin Rainsbury
  4. Hi Wendy I have no problem with that, as I work at a Hospital in Dartford Kent so there is a feeling of no sleep till Hammersmith right now. Keep safe and lets worry about model railways when we can. Take care Colin Rainsbury
  5. Had a reply from his widow and she tell me Michael was not involved with the kits but a guy by the name of Alan Mansfield was the owner of them, for some reason he has ceased trading does anyone have any contact with him?
  6. HII all I am trying to contact Alan Mansfield about his ABM Railcarft kits, The offical line is that it has now ceased trading, I was wondering if there was any possiblity of some one being able to buy the range. Colin Rainsbury
  7. Hi all here is what I think is an update to the lack of ABM railcraft kits https://letsgoloco.co.uk/ regards Colin Rainsbury
  8. Hi all I think this is an update to why ABM models have not been about for sometime https://letsgoloco.co.uk/ Regards Colin Rainsbury
  9. i am glad I am not the only one trying to contact the owner of ABM models I have an LSWR Station building, which I have used as a template for two other LSWR station buildings, I don't plan to sell it but if I could get a collection together of non made kits may be there might be away of keeping the models going. Sadly I don't have a list of the complete range of ABM kits
  10. Do you have some idea of the cost for thses kits? I might be interested in one of each type to start with. Colin R
  11. Hi guys are they any updates to this project? Colin Rainsbury
  12. Hi Guys while discussing another great railway modeller (Cyril Fry) on another site, it came to pass that it is not clear as to what has happen to the late Mike Sharman's 4mm scale broad gauge layout and the rolling stock that went with it. I don't want to buy any of it, But I was wondering if it was on display somewhere so that the public could go and see if they wish, while it may not fit in with the Pendon ethos, I was wondering that should Pendon require an extension then I am sure Mikes layout would be up there to be added to the collection. Any information about the layout would be welcome. Thank you all in advance. Colin Rainsbury
  13. Hi Dave managed to see the layout yesterday at Expo-ng, very nice modelling, the trouble was I could not spend any time watching you operate it. From the photos I had imagined it to be bigger than it was, One question from yesterday, I was given a number of Branchline 00n3 coach kits however I have looked at my Branchlines page and they don't appear to do a CVR Brake Van to go with the coaches, do you happen to have a drawing for them, as I think I shall need to make a couple of them. Thanks Colin
  14. Hi Nick try this link I think it should go to him directly stuart edmundson:- [email protected] hi. the time as come to cut down on my models. i am thinking of selling off my 7mm L&B items as i will not be building an L&B layout due to lack of space and other projects need finishing.i have 2 locos various goods stock mainly brass. some coaches that are card built and a part built station building. also some resin coach and goods wagon kits. it would be great to sell as one lot but think it wouldnt be possible due to the value. whats the thoughts of anyone on this list. i dont want to go down the ebay route. cheers stuart Regards Colin Rainsbury
  15. There is a guy on the L&BR modelling e group who is selling a number of 7mm L&BR Kits at the moment if you are interested. Colin
