  1. Many thanks for the kind comments, pleased you liked it. The layout itself is progressing well though it's taken a while (too long, can't believe I started this topic back in 2009)! However there still remains a lot of work to do on the locos and rolling stock. If anyone's interested you can see it next weekend at the Carlton Model Railway Society Show in Howden. Must update this topic at some point, in the meantime a couple of photos from today.
  2. Four of my PGA wagons made their exhibition debut today at the Yorkshire Wolds Railway model railway show!
  3. We now have a full list of layouts attending the show; West Street Station - Shaun Taylor Skipworth - Ken Nelson Steelworks - Jordon Thompson Chester Road - Robert Denton Dolwyn - Dave Holmes Barum West Jct - Ken Gibbons Private Warehouse - George White Peacehaven Promenade - Mike Hudson Z Gauge - Trevor Fowler Plus as previously mentioned my layout Boston Frodsham, a couple of photos attached below. In addition there will be trade stands from; Yorkshire Wolds Railway North Yorkshire Moors Railway LNER Conservation Association Derwent Valley Light Railway.
  4. For those of you who are not familiar with the Yorkshire Wolds Railway it was set up just over ten years ago with the aim of re-opening part of the former Malton & Driffield Junction Railway. The group has its base at Fimber (across the road from the old station) and initially it is working to restore the line as far as Wetwang. A short section of line is currently working at the Fimber site but the next twelve months should see significant progress in advancing towards Wetwang. As part of the fundraising scheme the Railway is hosting its second model railway exhibition at Wetwang Village Hall on Saturday 16th March from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. There will be ten layouts on display including my P4 layout Boston Frodsham plus various other exhibitors. Admission is just £2.00 for adults and £1.00 for children with all proceeds to the railway. So I hope you'll be able to come along, if you do please say hello. Below is attached a poster for the show, if you can please feel free to download and display it to help publicise the event. 2019MRS.pdf
  5. Problem solved! When looking at it previously I must have accidentally pressed the "ignore this topic" button. Just clicked on "stop ignoring this topic" and it's come back!
  6. Cheers. But given the last post on it was on 16th February ( by Simon Bendall) why isn't the thread a couple of spaces after this one given that they are supposed to be listed in order of latest post first?
  7. Just received my acknowledgement.☺ Hope there's enough pre orders to get the go ahead for production.
  8. Assuming I did it correctly I placed a pre order last week for 3 wagons in brown livery. As yet I've not received an acknowledgement of this. Should I have?
  9. Had a great day at the show today which was well worthy of it's 50th anniversary status. Arun Quay was just sublime but there were plenty of excellent layouts there to suit all tastes. Roll on the 100th show!
  10. Sounds like we could have organised a coach trip!
  11. There's about 8 of us heading over from Hessle Model Railway Group on Saturday so make sure the kettle's on!
  12. 214mm over buffers, 219mm over couplings ( see post number 42) ☺
