  1. Hi all just a small side project i started last week . i have a Bachmann green 08 shunter its been sitting around in its box since i brought it off E bay some time ago some of the grab rails on the loco body were broken and i just didnt get round to fixing them . so i thought about doing something with it . i have seen that the NCB did have some 08 or 09 shunters of there own some in a dark blue with red buffer beams some were part yellow and blue . but i have not seen any or know of any in a overall ncb yellow so i have come up with my own take on it . halfords yellow primer looked a good match for what i was looking for . i had some ncb transfers from planet industrials and got to work and this is what its looking like so far . there is still masking tape in the cab as i have yet to do some weather ing and the body shell is just resting on the chassi at the moment .
  2. Thanks Nobby out of the 3 micro layouts i have built this one is my favorite .
  3. Another j94 has been loaned for shunting as motive power is low looks like its in a clean condition it woint stay like it for long
  4. thinking back i 1st saw this resin van body in a old issue of narrow gauge & industrial railway modelling review and it was based on something thats been patched up . but what number issue i can not remenber
  5. Big thanks to all the likes i am so glad to have blown off the dust on this layout again in fact its given me the kick start i needed to get some more stock wagon wise i have just ordered some 16ton minerail wagons which i am really short of . which will probbly help with shunting wise as space is very tight as in the length of side ings .
  6. Thanks Od glad you like it . the layout has been tucked away for ages but i had kept looking at it thinking neeed to have a running session . as i had brought one of the EFE j94 no 19 just before the layout went in to storage as other projects had been started . At the moment i am just running it on DC performance on this loco is not brilliant on DC and strang enough the old Hornby j94 rosalyn runs really good . Just goes to show that even tho the EFE loco cost much more pay ing that bit extra woint all ways bring good performance . later on i will start running on DCC again but i remenber i had problems with this so the fitting of stay alives will be the order of the day .
  7. steam is still just about hanging on at kenwards colliery there is still a few J94 tanks working NCB number 19 is seen and J94 rosalyn in a bit off a sorry condition is seen shunting . well any excuse to get this layout out the cupbard and running again . hope you like the pics .

  10. thanks Kirley . considering that nearly all the buildings came from my original layout it was a case of what i could squeeze in to a boxfile
  11. Hi all i originally intended my micro layout to be based around a cornish china clay works but as normal with me my interest in other regions creeps in and as a result i am now back in to irish railways so i have decided that it will have to adapt to all my needs so i thought on the lines of a come Fertiliser come gypsum and pos cement theam if that makes sence . i have just recived my batch of irish railway models hopper wagons and i have to say they are excellent and a pack 8x pallets of bagged fertiliser from the same seller . i was hope ing 2 get some cement bubbles but all gone and same with the fertiliser wagons . so ile just have to be patient any way hope you like progress so far . there is still work to be done . more pics to follow .
  12. just found this one shows the track plan better
  13. Thanks Kirley kind of you to say that . over the last few years ive mainly only built small or micro layouts as any thing longer than 3-4 feet i end up never finishing . i may have another go at a layout i did build some time ago iit was based on a side ing that run to a off loading shed for some military fire ing ranges set on the edge of marsh land. here is a couple of pics
