  1. Thanks for filling me in about the bogies, I'll get them from replica with the bodies cheesysmith They only have a preorder available at 10% of the price so I've put a pound down to reserve one Nick, thanks for the information about the tenshodo motor bogies, I think they're best avoided then and the replica chassis is bit out of my price range unfortunately. It does look rather useful, an all in 1 solution and with a DCC socket for when I do upgrade to DCC Thanks for the help everyone
  2. Hi everyone, I'm making myself a BR 4-EPB (set around 1962) from mainly from replica bodies, and im not sure on a what bogies to use, Im currently thinking about replica B4 bogies for the unpowered bogies, they look the best match to me but im not sure on this For the power bogie Im thinking of a tenshodo motor bogie with Dart Castings B4 sideframes & the unpowered one out of a replica bogie with the same components, anyone have any better ideas for motive power as I cant find a BIL motor bogie anywhere? Thanks in advance, Adam
  3. I felt inspired from some of the stuff thats been on here in the last few pages and thought I'd try my hand at coming up with some island variations on minories and some variations while working with streamline points ( despite not owning any yet ) From top to bottom: A stream line version of keiths' layout a few pages back, its almost a 1m long but still under 26cm wide so would fit on a billy bookcase shelf Island with a pilot road in the middle using the peco 3 way points The middle pilot road somewhat reminds me of woking platform 3 somewhat, you could maybe run a autocoach/ 1
  4. Works out to be 50 chains or 0.625m so not very far at all
  5. Recently found this threat and I'm in love with with this layout, its just hustle and bustle of trains.
  6. I love just how much character that passenger train has, really shines on such a small layout. How did you make the carriage, is it a cut and shut of the Hornby freelance ones?
  7. Nice start, this sounds like an interesting layout. What is the building on the bottom left of the second picture? I really like the look of it
  8. I'm not refering to The Co-op but instead an actual Co-operative called Go! who were looking at opening the line in around 2011 as a shuttle service into Andover and improving the area generally. I only ever saw a little column in the local newspaper but from what it seems like they have all but given up on the Andover branch. There's only a little footnote on the wikipedia page about it
  9. Im really liking the bridge, with a bit of weathering it might look like the real thing. This is going to be a really nice module when its finished Thats the 2nd time I've heard about the line from Andover to Lugershall being reinstated, I think last time it was a northern Co-op around 2013 who was going to use it but nothing came of it. Though I have no idea about the rest of the track, the part visable from the station up to redpost junction (?) was rather weedy
  10. Kits are lots of fun to build (well the one wagon I built was) and also they're a nice way of keeping the cost down and variety up
  11. Progress has been good, the bridge is semi assembled waiting some black paint for the portal which I'll be getting tomorrow. I still don't know what to do with the backscene, it may remain white or I might try some watercolours on it, and paint a sunset/rise. I'm considering trying drybrushing to a wagon just to dirty them up a bit more and then maybe onto the scenics
  12. I'm quite the fan of shunting and inglenook and a nice start, I look forward to seeing how this progresses
  13. I've done a bit more which is worthwhile of an update, grass has been laid (perhaps too early I'm thinking now), the doors fitted and an image for inside incorrectly printed out. Both of the ends have been decided what they're going to be, the left is a railway bridge and the right is a factory wall with a window. I still need to decide how to do the right wall roof or do I just paint the sky above and forgo a roof there, and do the roof over the main building. I think buying a scanescenes set might be a worthwhile investment as the canopy doesn't look right, it might be the ang
