  1. Strictly cosmetic, Paul, although the associated transitions (on the main lines, no room for them here) are functional in the sense that they allow a gradual increase in track spacing between the straight and the circular curve. More detail here and in subsequent posts:
  2. Thanks Ben. It's a scratchbuilt styrene model of the station building at Bugle, shortened to about 2/3 of its scale length. When I say scratchbuilt, I did use Peco valances and some Peco and Grandt Line windows and doors.
  3. Hmm, I have strong connections with both Edinburgh and Leeds but as a Londoner by birth I will have to pick 46245.
  4. Will do. These are old ones though - Norwich era. I've always set those at 14.5mm. What do you think?
  5. The replacement wheelset made no difference whatsoever, so I took it out and put the Dapol one back in. Never mind - nothing ventured, nothing gained.

When he was woken up he asked "Are we at Hastings yet?" It turned out that he had got on at Victoria much earlier, been to Hastings, back to VIC, down to Brighton and into Lovers' Walk without being disturbed. The staff felt sorry for him so, as the last train had long gone, they gave him a lift home in the depot van.
  8. At one place I worked, some passengers would quite often "forget" to get out of the train at the terminus as it was a shorter walk home from the depot than from the station.
  9. Worse than chopping someone's legs off at the hip to get them to fit a railbus driver's seat? What a great idea! Seeing as my layout represents summer Fridays and Saturdays in Cornwall, if I ran the namers with all the corridors on the viewing side I could cram those full of standing passengers and not worry about the compartments at all.
