    WCML during the 90s and AC electrics are my main passion.

    Swiss railways, especially through the mountains, are a bit of a sideline interest.

  1. Hi David, Cracking photos as always. The trains themselves are of course very interesting. But some of the stuff in the background is also a brilliant help. I have been looking for a few pictures of a suitable background wall for a station and your Hartlepool picture was just exactly the thing I had in mind but was struggling to find. All the best Dave
  2. After doing a few very heavily weathered locos, it was nice to do a lightly weathered one for a change. The roof is an area I have always struggled with, but this one has come out better than any of my previous attempts I think. But as always I would value any opinions or tips. I will leave the loco a few days and take another look with fresh eyes before giving it a run on the layout and getting a few photos of it in action. All the best Dave
  3. Looks brilliant Duncan, the natural light really helps show it off. Beautifully weathered. Hopefully the building work will sort it's self out with time. All the best Dave
  4. Looking forward to seeing the next step on 37239. It's a brilliant model so far and motivated me to get on with my two and give them a weather. All the best Dave
  5. Thanks for the kind comments Jo, I have a layout thread on the go for Maid's Morton which should be in the link below. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/127098-maid’s-morton/ All the best Dave
  6. Motivated by some cracking 37s on Shirebrook and Speke East I thought I'd give my two a go and make them look more realistic. The basic model was (at least in my untrained opinion) very good and I haven't modified anything, just added some weathering. Then running with it's partner light loco around the layout. All the best Dave
  7. At least you put something in your photos to show it's actually a model. Would have to accuse you of cheating and posting photos of the real things otherwise . Brilliant modelling. All the best Dave
  8. Hi Ian, Thanks for posting. I always think model railways are a bit like paintings in a way. Some paint for perfection in a photorealistic kind of way, but other people paint like my wife and although she'd be the first to admit that the paintings she does are not photo like, they create an unmistakable atmosphere and give the viewer the feeling they might have had they been looking at the real thing. I hope you take it as the compliment it's intended to be when I say the same about your modeling. Full of atmosphere and character and I for one am glad you shared the photos. All the best Dave.
  9. I am glad for you, that sounds like good news. Is the catalog available online anywhere?
  10. Looking good Phil. Just the right kind of clutter to give a realistic feel to it. That blue split headcode 37 in the foreground of one of the shots looks like a nice model as well. All the best Dave
  11. The increase is miles and miles ahead of the inflation rate (2019 was 1.80%). If it carries on like this every year the average Joe (like me.....) won't be able to afford to keep up. I wonder how they choose the % price rise each year.
  12. Just stumbled across this cracking layout. The OHLE is taking shaping and adds a lot of character to the layout. Consider it followed from now on. All the best Dave
  13. They look brilliant. Bit disappointed that I won't be back in the UK to pick mine up until early next year seeing those pictures. But at least it gives me something to look forward to. Thanks for posting some pictures. Great to see them on a layout. All the best Dave
  14. Guess I shouldn't have been surprised, but still disappointing that the 2Fs are going to be shuffled later. Thanks for posting the photo. Even though it's 'bad news' as it were, it saves me having to watch out for them, or anything from Farish by the looks of it. No 31s, no virgin or RES 47, no mainline 37. I should stop getting so excited when they announce things and wait until they turn up in the shops I suppose. All the best Dave
