  1. Cheers Andy. I'll venture out today & try to find one in the wild. Chris
  2. I've been out of the loop for a while so have managed to miss a fair few issues. I fully intend to pick up 275 when its out so can anyone tell me the expected released date published in 274 please? Cheers Chris
  3. Evening Any chance of a link to the FB page? Thanks.
  4. Mirror or have you been very busy on the quite?
  5. Evening... Looking for a little help identifying what prototype this open wagon is. I think it’s either a D&S or ABS kit. Cheers Chris
  6. Evening all. I just thought I’d share this afternoons efforts with you. A couple of LNWR opens built from Ratio kits. Nothing particularly special about those I here you all cry.... Well if I was to tell you there were built by my 9 year old son Arthur (with some input from Dad but not to much) I hope you’d agree that they are rather good. The five plank was started by my other son Wylder who is 7 but sadly only got as far as attaching the ends & sides to the floor before losing interest & going to play in the garden. So Arthur completed both of them. He really enjoyed making them & has already said we need to build a brake van for them now. Here he is cutting the running gear out Attaching the springs & axle boxes Brakes fitted nearly done We even went as far as to ‘future proof’ them by setting the brakes so that a set of EM wheels can be dropped in at a later date so they can be run on ‘dads track’. Cheers Chris
  7. Truly amazing modelling!!! I'm particular taken with the 'castle' nuts. Is it rude to ask what scale it is?
  8. Evening I couldn't say for sure what the state of play will be this weekend regards the rail network. I would suggest that anyone travelling to the show via public transport to just double check what the status of their service is for the weekend. https://www.northernrailway.co.uk/strike Cheers Chris
  9. Nobody? I’m not sure that’s right Andrew.
  10. A few pics of some of the layouts attending this years show. Burnham On Sea Marine Park Yard Leicester South GC St Georges Dock Green Pond Mine Hudson Street Staly Vegas The Depots, Rosedale East - EM Der Steinbruch Burnroyd Works Callaton 2FS I'm still waiting for pics of the other layouts so if any of the owners/operators have pics your happy to share please feel free to post them here. Cheers Chris
  11. Replacement layout added to the line up. O gauge industrial shunting puzzle - Amalgamated Wagon Works by Ben Lord. Cheers Chris
  12. Unfortunately the 00 LMS layout Conistone has had to withdraw from this years exhibition. We’re hoping it should be able to attend next year. A replacement layout or layouts are currently being considered. I’ll update the list when we’ve got a replacement confirmed. Cheers Chris
