  1. Hi Westerhamstation. I agree with everyone, but now, after several years, the line has gone and indeed partly built over by the construction of the M25. I don’t know if there are any followers that bother with youtube, but there is an interesting video on the line, with a commentary. Happy Modelling Kev
  2. Hi Siberian Snooper. Thank you for the info, I will look into that. Happy Modelling Kev
  3. Hi Modellers. I have been building Shunting Puzzles up until now? But just now I have been looking at BLT’s , and there are a range of ideas up and down the regions, mostly using 0-6-0 tank engines. With a small turntable used as part of the runaround, but before I can put this idea into an actual layout I would need a small turntable, just big enough to handle an 0-6-0 otherwise it would defeat the object of space saving. Any bright ideas please? Happy Modelling Kev
  4. Hi Robert. I have got two Pugs , and they both run well on dc, but I would like to convert one to DCC. I have seen one converted online which even has sound. But I cannot find anyone that would be willing to do the work for me. Would you know someone that would help me? Happy Modelling Kev
  5. Hi The johnster. Thank you. From one c*ck handed Modeller to another, I am suffering with arthritis and need oversized handles on everything to get a grip. Happy Modelling Kev
  6. Hi jf2682. Glenfinnan Viaduct in the Scottish Highlands, as used in the Harry Potter film is a good example to follow. There must be a photo of it somewhere. Happy Modelling Kev
  7. Hi Modellers. I am trying to find? Or figure out how to photograph a carriage sidings, with the tops of the roof’s stretching back in the distance, adding great depth to the scene. As if my model was in the middle of a Railway Yard. any suggestions? Happy Modelling Kev
  8. Hi Titanius Anglesmith I am interested in working signals , as much as I am a newbie to model Railways, I am familiar with “ Prototype Signals “, and have been criticised for my expectations of some manufacturers interpretations of how Model signals operate in relation to semaphore signals , which can be seen on many YouTube Layouts . Have you got any plans for your system? Happy Modelling Kev PS I didn’t mention “ Pinch of Salt “ . See if you can work out what “ Retired Operator “ means? I will give you a clue, DOO.
  9. Hi Modellers. I have a Hornby Blue 06 class Shunter , which I thought I might add a Decoder to maybe lamps as well, after reading an article in Model Rail, and then if I get it wrong and burn out the motor or something silly it won’t matter too much and it would be practice for a decent Loco DCC conversion But then I thought I don’t want a blue Loco running around on my layout, maybe I can paint it, black or green? As I don’t own or want an air brush , could I do it by hand, or would that really “ buffer it up?” But then there is the question of transfers. Any opinions. Happy Modelling Kev

  11. Hi Modellers. I have got a similar problem but, with the Dapol Presflo Wagon Kits but so far it is the end of the first Wagon doesn’t match the sides as it appears to on the straight side. If I was to glue/ cement/ or use solvent on the part that fits, once it has set could I bend with the hot water treatment the offending part into shape without affecting the already glued part? (Okay it is a silly question) Happy Modelling Kev
  12. Hi Darren I have two such Pug that I bought off eBay a couple of years back, and have been considering doing the same for my Pugs, but they run well in DC and I am wondering if it is worth me doing the work and the chances of me stopping them working all together. I have heard comments about using the best Decoder available, meaning not the Hornby type . Happy Modelling Kev
  13. Hi Yff The Track that you built does look very good , but, beside the Hornby track looks a different gauge, must be an optical illusion? Happy Modelling Kev
  14. Hi JRB. Very good. When I tried the tension lock staple idea , it worked fine, at first, but after a while the hooks fell off. I did write to the various manufacturers of the wagons, and they sent me some spare Couplings, but then I found Kadee, and I was hooked. Happy Modelling Kev
  15. Hi Richard. Very good indeed. I do like the painting of the figures . And if I could fit the likes of them in Loco Cabs? then I would. Please excuse my ignorance, but, did you paint them yourself ? or buy them painted? Happy Modelling Kev
