  1. The storage boxes arrived today. Yep, they are 20L RUBs (cost £12.50 direct from the RUB web site), but the pre-cut foam is what I purchased them for and it's good quality stuff. Compared to the foam trays from Ten Commandments (5 slots for £18 and no plastic box, compared to 10 slots and a 20L box from Trainsporters for £30), these are good value for money.
  2. I could've guessed there would be negative comments about this - someone trying to make money, how awful is that?
  3. I was looking around the web for storage boxes/trays for my collection and came across a new company called Trainsporters. I like the look of the storage boxes, so purchased three (OO Gauge). Will let you know how they look once they arrive. https://trainsporters.com/ Pete
  4. At the root of the problem is, of course, Russian interference.
  5. Anyone think we will get these by the end of the year? I know the expected date keeps getting pushed back - the Hattons web site says October - November currently.
  6. Try Orwell Model Railways, they have some in stock.
  7. I prefer oranges, except on Tuesdays when I abstain from all fruit.
  8. Thanks for the info, I'm going to get some too
  9. How does the routing work on a single slipswitch? I have a double one so know how that works. Cheers Pete
  10. Thanks Jeff, yes I have the info from that site. I just had a look through my paint collection and Humbrol 160 Red Brown seems like a reasonable match.
  11. Can anyone recommend a model paint that represents maroon brown as used by the GWR on their buildings? I have Phoenix Precision GWR Stone paints, but they don't do the maroon brown colour. Cheers Pete
  12. Where I live, there is a flue that goes up the chimney, so that's entirely possible.
  13. Could you look over my current track plan and let me know if I have the signalling in order? The layout is set in the 1930s and I took my lead from two signalling diagrams - Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn, both branch line termini set in West Wales. The diagram at Newcastle Emlyn is more complex than Cardigan in that there are five shunt signals, whereas there appear to be none at Cardigan. Any idea why? Anyway, here is my track plan with the signals and points indicated by numbers (Note that I used colour light signal icons to represent shunt signals, for want of something better).
  14. I fully commend them for that, as with Dapol.
  15. Not to worry, thanks for letting us all know. It's not that long to wait... (is it?)...
