  1. Just been train spotting and took this photo! Really amazing!!
  2. We are now past a year when a lot of clubs have had to shut their doors due to covid. Some have kept up weekly online meetings with members showing their modelling efforts to webcams. Others have given lectures and photo shows. This week marks the point where some clubs have been able to have physical meetings, governed by the rule of six and bringing their own tea and biscuits. The question is how will clubs adapt? Exhibitions are not guaranteed for this year. Modellers have been working on home projects. Some people will not return as they have drifted away from club actives. What are your thoughts for how clubs can come out of this dip with a lot of people now part of online groups?
  3. Noticed you have put the fancy grey car over two parking spaces! So real life! A quick tour of any car park will show you that the average motorist can not park dead centre in the parking bays. This is either by design (Having more room for getting out of the car) or lack of driving skills! You decide!
  4. To drive the train. It is a stage prop. If they are filming in the cab of the steam engine there will be no room for the real crew. Also at a different location it will be pushed off a bridge...!
  5. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-56846467.amp This looks like the replacement bridge location
  6. It was titled ‘A bird cage for Polly’ As it used a Triang Polly 0-4-0T as a start for the conversion.

  8. I have dug up an old layout I started many years. It is made of three 1000x 300mm boards . So in total 10' x 1' It could have a fiddle yard fitted at both ends and used as a through station or one end and the layout run as a truncated line. It has scenery on the left hand end, but bare boards on the right hand one. it is intended to use it with small diesels (class 25) for freight and 2 car DMUs (class 101). roughly set in the 1970s. It will be wired for DC operation. Any problems with the platform road being effectively a loop off the straight through main line? Also any other problems with shunting? Any comments gratefully received! 486507075_smallstationone.obj
  9. Found these Faller buildings (200 and 209) in the loft. Any ideas what to do to them to make them look ok on a British layout? What time period would they look best in? Thanks!
  10. https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/H08670/2021-03-29/detailed#allox_id=0 This might be part of the route taken to get from Tonbridge to Eastleigh. Over the years the coastline route from Hastings to Southampton has be modified for multiple unit working. Involving reversals at Eastbourne and Brighton. So no good for freight trains.
