  1. This is what I was going from when thinking about my layout I'm now very confused as this site states although rarely done it doesn't state that it's not allowed to be done. As you can see it's an extract from a different thread from this website? Is there actually any regulartions written down?
  2. Great little layout and gives me some inspiration to create my own, full of character and atmosphere. What is the concern with the wiring. As I would have thought as long as the gentleman has ventilation, its PAT tested and is inaccessible to touch when operated then it would be fine it appears to be in a plastic case so is insulated. Forgive me only just starting in the model railway world and only living in a small flat I don't have much space.
  3. Hi mike, really nice job on the 31 network rail loco im looking to do the same and was wondering what make of loco you started with and where I can get the detailing kit from or have you plans you could send me many thanks and keep up the good work look forward to seeing more
  4. Glass added as you can see in the picture I cut the big plastic steps off and replaced them with track pins bent and fixe in to give a more realistic hand rail just need a decent chassis to put her on
  5. This wouldn't be the conversion to a calidonian 0-6-0 jumbo we spoke about would it
  6. Thank all. Very useful I'll let you know how they all come out and post some pictures for you all I did do an 08 shunter that's on my page let use know what you think in the middle of moving at the moment so wont be doing much the next few weeks
  7. Thanks all been a great help well looks like I paid an ok price and even though it's not really a loco that fits in with my location (sheringham) it's still an iconic locomotive and nice to have in the collection
  8. That's great help I'm originaly from great yarmouth but now live in sunny Scotland I think there will be some modellers licensing in respect to the SKIs entering but like you said lifeboatman the bridge will give a good scene break and allow me to put a fiddle yard this end and there seems to be plenty of sideings so could maybe put some shunting in eg coaches, goods wagons it will be intresting to see wether greater Anglia one or what ever they call them welds these days will apply to use the line when they build the Norfolk orbital again but if not what a good length track to take a ride on.
  9. I'm thinking of doing a 00 layout based on the north Norfolk railway more exact the sheringham station as it is today with the new crossing in place as this will give me the ability to run modern DMU's eg class 156 & 170 and run steam locos or even some older diesel locos on the same lay out so best of both worlds dose any one have any plans for any of the track lay out or building platform plans also dose any one think this is a good idea thanks for looking

  11. And from the side I've left the wasp stripes on but this is somthink I feel really suits the 08 class
  12. There we go all my attempt at a new paint job I feel this is some what more intresting than the very basic red and grey loco that Hornby made but set for a good base to start and a nice easy conversion for the younger less skilled modeler any more idears as to what I could add would be great
  13. Yes handles have been painted now and some detaling to front buffer beam and it's on the original chassis for now
  14. Now many people will say that's not an 08 number and find fault but be gentle I'm new to railway modeling but thought I would share my attempt and changing the railroad 08 shunter from the train pack and I don't think it came out to bad let me know what you think
