  1. That's brilliant, many thanks. Pack C ordered.
  2. Many thanks. As the saying goes, every little helps!
  3. Excellent photos. I'm looking at building a layout based on Queensborough Rolling Mill. If you have any more photos I'd love to see them.
  4. I would like to record my thanks on here to Andy York for letting me include in the show the video of the interview he recorded with me when I exhibited Boston Frodsham at the Festival of British Railway Modelling at Doncaster last February. It may contain too many views of my ugly mug and Hull accent but it was still way better than any video that I could have produced!
  5. Many thanks Steve, glad you liked it.
  6. Hi there. I sent you a PM a few days ago. Just wondered if you'd seen it.

      Given that the last time (s)he visited the site was 29.12.2019, I suspect that the answer is 'no'.


      But thanks for sharing with us, all the same.

  7. Thanks John. As the signals I built for our previous layout were ER that's probably where I got the idea they were black. The ones I'm currently building for our new layout are a mix of ex Highland Railway and LMS so probably looks like I need to repaint them!
  8. I notice the back blinders on these signals are painted white. I always assumed they were black but some photos of prototype signals I've looked at recently also show white ones. Any idea whether white was always used or could they be either colour.
  9. I'll be there with Boston Frodsham. A couple of photos below to hopefully tempt you even more!
  10. So if manual handling regulations restrict a person to lifting a maximum of 25kg then you'll need five people just to carry the ballast when you're setting up the layout at a show!
  11. If it was loaded with concrete we'd ring the fire brigade to come and flush it out before it went hard!
  12. Cheers Steve. On behalf of Hessle MRG I'd like to offer our sincere thanks to all the exhibitors and traders who turned out to support us. Also to the people who visited the show, in numbers far greater than we had hoped, particularly given the weather conditions early in the day. The day was a great success which everyone appeared to enjoy immensly. Thank you all again.
  13. Cheers Steve. As he says it's tomorrow from 10.00 to 16.00. Don't miss it!
  14. 100% O gauge. 100% modern image. It doesn't get any better than that!
