  1. Thanks Tony, I must admit it was the first time taking something out of the box and altering it straight away. Normally I watch the pretty engine go round for months before anything happens. Now to find some lamps.....
  2. I don’t know how I feel about posting these up after Tom’s work.... After zero thought or consideration I treated myself to an A2, although not my era, I couldn’t help it. As soon as I got home it was a test run on DC and then test running on DCC, i had to weather a few wagons so made up extra paint and got to work on her. Not as good as Toms, but I’m happy with it. I also went off a few photos.
  3. I think they can be made into a nice layout wagon! A small bit of modellers licence, some elbow grease, scratch building and you have a nice wagon to add to any train. This GN fish van has now been weathered and ready to roll.
  4. Shot gun the Jidenco kits, no take backs, no do overs!
  5. I do agree that it’s very easy to operate and I also agree about DCC being a little more complicated with the address etc. However, I think the way I have used DCC is the way to go for ease of operation, I hope I don’t sound like I’m talking myself up. DCC is used only for the running of trains on Brighton Junction, points and eventually signals (email coming your way shorty Graham) are all DC. You get the best of both worlds, well I think so, you still need to add the address’ into the controller but you get so used to what locos on which train you don’t even need to look at the loco.
  6. That reminds me when I ran LB all on my lonesome for a couple of hours whilst you were swearing at something you were building. Although I’ve always found it much easier running trains by yourself, as soon as there’s a crowd things go wrong.
  7. I’ll have the whole thing re wired into DCC after a few beers
  8. Might have to sneak over, anyone got a free room? I promise to isolate for 14 days.
  9. There’s always one isn’t there
  10. You have no idea how excited I am
  11. May I offer ones humble modelling work? I built this DS GER low Mac a few months ago and decided on finishing her off, with weathered/altered Oxford Diecast plough machine. It took me most of today to do and if I may say so myself, I’m very proud of how it’s turned out.
  12. Oi, don’t speak like that my Hq’s very sensitive when it comes to rust...
