    EBay madness

    Just saw this Bachmann OO across Country 170 on eBay.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153995834672 I’m sorry how much?!?!? OliverSR
  2. Acquired recently in a house clearance I came across these two books and so if anyone can offer them a good home and cover postage they are yours. Book 2 Dated 1955 Thomas the Tank engine has childs drawings on the cover and inside cover only but the pages seem to be in okay condition with damage to spine. Book 14 Dated 1959(first edition?) The Little Old Engine. Appears to have no drawings on pages and is in good condition. I would prefer to send them together but would consider splitting if I have two interested parties. Please message me with any interest or questions. OliverSR
  3. Let me know if you can get to them, ideally contact me via a private message on this site (by clicking on my profile and finding the letter icon there). Depending where you are I may be able to drop them around locally. Either way you are the first person to express interest in them so can have first refusal. OliverSR
  4. I have a selection of O Gauge coaches made out of mainly wood with missing or damaged bogies, in need of a home. If anyone has any use for and can collect from Cheltenham they are welcome to them. Due to the size of them I don’t wish to post them. Anyone interested please PM me to arrange a time for a socially distanced collection. OliverSR
  5. Not an STL file but @Bluebell Model Railway created these which he prints and sells himself. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F202794963730 OliverSR
  6. I think this page has some details on what you were thinking about. http://www.semgonline.com/gallery/class424_exp.html OliverSR
  7. I think the bumpy look is more due to my (arguably poor) choice to brush paint the prints in a thick acrylic primer and if I was doing this again I’d approach them differently with a spray primer and plenty of sanding. I did this quite a while ago but remember the door vinyls not being a great fit as I think they were too long. I’d certainly not consider my efforts to be a good representation of what is possible with a bit more patience and planning. From normal viewing distance I’m happy with them though. I had a look at and I could release the design on shapeways to purchase but they are now showing up at about £7.50 which is double the cost of when I got them printed so it’s up to you whether you think it’s something still of interest. Here is a link to a preview of the item (Lineside Huts) please let me know either on this thread or via PM and I can make them purchasable. OliverSR
  8. A long overdue update on this layout. I will provide a quick summary of the bits done on the layout. A lot of work was done on the wiring so I now have isolating controls. A modified signal kit was built which has been connected to the point to switch both simultaneously. Using fine scale code 40 track building components 3rd and 4th rails were added which look the part to me without hindering the running of any stock. Lineside cable was scratch built using arms from OO telegraph poles and plastic rod(which took absolutely ages but sets the scene well). The platform had fencing fitted. I also designed and ordered from Shapeways some Lineside isolator huts to stick on the platform beyond the public reach. Rolling stock has also been a focus of making N-Train kits for both preserved 1938 stock and 1978 D stock. The 1935 battery loco gained a spoil train and a dummy loco both kits from Parkwood Models. The second battery loco I opted to paint in blue with yellow ends for a bit of variety. Using Electra Railways vinyls and some cast cab ends a 4TC set for steam on the met events was made and this allows steam locos to appear On occasional services. To tail these trains I have made a Parkwood Models Metropolitan Loco as a dummy Sarah Siddons. I have a few more kits lined up for the future stock and intend to revisit some of the older items hopefully improving them. For now I’ll stick up a few recent photos including the Christmas decorations that snuck onto the layout. Feel free to ask any questions as I know I skimmed over the bits done on the layout and rolling stock. Im glad the topic is finally up to date at least. OliverSR
  9. The coach is definitely OO not O gauge though I could’ve put a ruler in the photos if I’d thought of it. Does anyone have a example of one with a chassis or other livery variants on the same tooling? OliverSR
  10. I recently picked up this small coach body at a show and was wondering if anyone had any ideas what it was. I was thinking it might be Exley possibly? OliverSR
  11. On the N-Train Facebook page on 27/6/19 they posted to say the owner of N-Train Bob was in hospital and apologised as there would be a delay in orders. Hopefully you will hear back once he is recovered. OliverSR
  12. I was wondering if anyone had a set of OO Heljan western wheels to replace some on a earlier model I have. If you have some of the standard OO Gauge left over from a em or p4 conversation then please message me. OliverSR
  13. N-Train do a range of 3D printed kits including 1959 stock and 1992 stock as well as many others. https://n-train.net/ I have built the 1959 stock (shown on my thread https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/121014-oliversrs-n-gauge-underground-projects/). I have have a few others from their range I’m working on which I find are very well designed 3D printed kits and easy to assemble. OliverSR
  14. Anyone got a spare Bachmann analogue controller 36-560 type or similar eg one from a starter set maybe. Cosmetic condition unimportant but must be working, dc adaptor or any of the cables not essential as it would be used as a slave unit. Please PM me if you can help. OliverSR
  15. Ebay discount offer on the same day I’m paid means I have now ordered, Camelot, Camelot (it’s only a model)

      Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! (Sorry) What's a Camelot?
