  1. Thanks for watching the video, we really enjoyed running the trains. The GBRF ones are also very smart and would look great with any celebrity 66 or gbrf 60.
  2. Good afternoon. My 6 Freightliner MJAs have arrived from Hattons. Here are a few photos of Freightliner 70006 on my rake of 6 which just fit in the siding.
  3. Great work with the 222 Jack. We had a fantastic few hours didn't we! Can't wait for the next one. In the meantime I will try to crack on with the layout but as I type this it's 19.23, tea still not ready so looks like no garage time again tonight!
  4. Well myself and Jack Taylor had a fantastic few hours running trains on Durrington Central. Here is a video of Jack's locomotives going about their business away from their home layout of
  5. Here is a video of my sons Hornby TTS sound Flying Scotsman and Bachmann Freightliner 70006. . . . . Two big green machines!!
  6. FLYING SCOTSMAN RESURRECTION! My sons Hornby TTS sound Flying Scotsman has been broken and in pieces for years so earlier in the week I removed the motor and came to a conclusion it was the motor at fault as the sound still worked but wouldn't drive. So I ordered a replacement replacement motor from Ebay and fitted it and it now works! In the photo above The Flying Scotsman was derailing on the opposite track but it was down to a joint, one track being tacked down too low and one not down enough which resulted in the 1st pair of big wheels riding off the track. I will make a video soon.
  7. Good evening. Here is a update on the layout. These scale model scenary picnic benches are ideal for the beer garden but they are so fiddly to assemble! I could only make 3 before having to take a break! I need more seated people. I've completed the black spear fencing around the church yard. Now the fencing is in I can complete the grave yard. I'm not sure the colourful houses are keepers yet. Could do with them being 3 stories high so may reattempt them. I was gutted to miss the GBRF "This time its personal 2021" charity rail tour involving the 3x class 50s from Preston to Bescot so I had a go at double heading my own 50s. Below is a video. Thanks for visiting.
  8. Nice selection of locos, especially the colas 56!
  9. The layout is looking great Jack, nice videos too which I've seen on you tube and left comments. Keep it going!
  10. Good evening. Still really busy at work and weekends but some scenic items arrived a few days ago so I've literally just had half hour on the layout. The black spear fencing arrived (still need more) so I've finished the fencing along the sea wall. Some scale model scenary lifebuoys have arrived so I've positioned a few.
  11. Good evening. I am back at work after self isolating hence the reason for the recent resurgence of modelling. Progress has slowed now but managed to do a little more scenics and ballasting. The dirt track will hopefully lead to a signal box. I have a Hornby semaphore junction signal but I have not took it out of the box yet as I am not sure I like it. Maybe with a bit of painting and weathering it will look better but undecided at the moment.
  12. Great photos of the 68s they look great.
  13. Here is a video I made this morning of DRS 37405 navigating the siding to the aggregate terminal and passing other locations on the layout.
