  1. Hi Guys I hope you will forgive the shameless plug and self promotion but I am thinning the herd of a number of Cuban Rolling Stock items in my possession. I have far too much and there's no point keeping them packed away..... Hopefully, someone else will be encouraged to start modelling Cuba in HO Scale with the help of some of these. Here is the link to Ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/lineascubanas/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= Or just search "Lineas Cubanas" or "Cuban Railways" on eBay Rolling stock fo
  2. I did a bit of work on the railroad this weekend. Just changed a couple of things I wasn't happy with. I came to the conclusion that I need a staging/fiddle yard to operate the layout effectively and that's not going to be possible in my office where the layout is situated. So I am thinking I may move the layout to the garage which will enable said fiddle yard to be implemented and the layout stored until future exhibitions, for when life begins again. Obviously, if I move it from my office it frees up some space for a new layout/project! I also took some ph
  3. Thanks Andy I may keep it, I am undecided at the moment. Thinking if I move it on I might get my modelling mojo back and be inspired to get on with my next project. But I think the demand for HO Cuban Layouts is pretty small. Where does one even sell a layout nowadays and for how much? I am tempted to have a go at Continental N but kind of finer standards using Code 40 track, finer wheels but tbh I am not sure building 2mm turnouts is within my skillset and seems pretty daunting........
  4. Hi Everyone I am considering parting ways with "La Noche de la Iguana" in order to make room for my next project I would like it to go to a good home, hopefully someone who will be prepared to exhibit it if that's their bag etc Its 105 inches long by about 22 inches at the widest point All my Cuban Motive Power/Rolling Stock will be included. If you are interested, please contact via PM Thanks for your interest Matt
  5. Here it is in visual form which I find more inspiring. You are probably thinking where the hell is the railway ??? You'd be right ...I tend to take my inspiration from other sources. (All said in a non pretentious way......hopefully) Riddle of the Sands La Brouillard au Pont de Tolbiac Sin El Fil
  6. In no particular order, one of the following: Riddle of the Sands La brouillard au pont de Tolbiac Sin El Fil Answers on postcard please if you have any preferences or even know what I am going on about..... Do you need any Mill Buildings? I am pretty sure I have some that Peter gave me that he used on an old layout of his. If you do, let me know and I will dig them out and post a photo. You can let me know if they are suitable/will help and I will get them to you once the local post office stops
  7. Thanks both for your support and contribution towards the next project.......
  8. Hi Andy, Thanks for the kind words and the Ebay Promotion! It is indeed me: having sorted through my rolling stock, I have far too much to run so I'd rather it give someone a head start in modelling Cuban Railways than stay packed away! There are some books on there too on Cuban Railways Commercial break over.....
  9. Thanks for this Paul TBH, I hadn't really thought beyond including some of The Buena Vista Social Club soundtrack You got me thinking......so I have been putting together some ambient sounds Managed to even find a recording of a Cuban Numbers Station that is still active......... called "Voce De La Chica," believed to be operated by the Cuban intelligence directorate, Dirección de Inteligencia (DI). https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/ezvyyj/cubas-mysterious-numbers-station-is-still-on-the-air
  10. Hi Everyone Hope you are all staying safe and well in these peculiar times, more importantly I hope you are getting some modelling done! La Noche de la Iguana is pretty much finished now. Just need to sort through teething problems with the locos and rolling stock and maybe add some people....
  11. The wall at the back reads "En Cada Barrio Revolución" "In every neighbourhood Revolution" Well in Larkhall at least
  12. Apologies for my tardiness in replying. Just met up with Simon and Jerry to discuss my contract and appearance fee for Larkrail 2020. The good news is we came to an agreement so Lineas Cubanas will be indeed be attending Obviously, the exact details of the contract and fee are confidential but it basically involves Jerry agreeing to cut the tracks at the baseboard join for me so we can dismantle the layout and get it out of the house. See you all then
  13. I take it you will both be available to sort my lack of operators problem?
  14. Not sure if its even going ahead but I think its usually June/July
  15. Thanks Paul. I appreciate the encouragement Hoping to get the first third of the layout, everything from the left upto the grey building (station) finished by the end of the year. And then the second third (Station and Yard Area) by March and the final third (River, Countryside and Apartment Blocks) done by June. Hopefully in time for Larkrail if indeed it goes ahead
