  1. PMP. Do I note you have also removed the fitted coupler housing on the underside of the 7 plank? Very helpful topic. Thanks for sharing/asking Trainman2001 James.
  2. Chard. Thanks very much just what I was after. It would seem the sites I had saved are no longer 'up & running' for some reason. Now need to track down some early photos of them. Cheers. James.
  3. Hello. I hope, after a long search in a number of ‘old’ sites that someone out there can point me in the direction of a list of 08 depot allocations, since new. I have a need as I wish to renumber a couple. Thanks in anticipate. James.
  4. Mark. Many thanks for your information. I think I will stick with my plan of using Mulgrave as a sort of scheme for my NSWGR layout. But guys, please don't stop adding stuff to this post as no info is wasted. I would like to think other UK based modellers of Australian railways are reading this. Thanks again and keep up the good work. James.
  5. Ai. In an earlier post you said your interests are the Victoria Railways. I have a question regarding it's interchange with the NSWGR and if so was this standard gauge? Would have been freight and passenger service this happened on? Many thanks for any help/info offered as I find it all very interesting. It would be fun to have an Australian Railway's Day meet somewhere in the UK? Cheers.
  6. Just been wondering how many modellers of any Australian railway system there are here in the UK? I know not all of them will be members of RMweb but it would be interesting see just how much interest there is on the top half of the planet!! As I may have already said I find the New South Wales Government Railway so utterly mesmerizing, I guess its what comes from living so far from it!! It would be interesting to see your locations as well. I live just West of Bristol and I know of another modeller into the NSWGR, he lives in Clevedon. Thanks for any responses. James.
  7. Another vote from me. Whilst installing a sound chip in a pannier I damaged both balance pipes. After discussing with Chris on how and why, he was kind enough to mail me, at no charge, a pair of replacements. Very good service which is very much appreciated, more power to your elbow guys. I have no connection with this excellent company other than a satisfied customer. James.
  8. Hello. Having retired from work I now find myself with a “New Line manager”. A number of months ago I decided to try a bit of Italian modelling in HO. 2 baseboards were constructed and a bit of stock purchased. Only now my line manager has taken it upon herself to start tidying our garage which she hasn’t visited in a number of years!!! The upshot of all this is and joking aside I need to sale a few bits that I have imported from Italy. So if you guys know of anyone who may be interested in an LE Models 0-6-0 steam loco ep111 851 004 and/or a ViTrains 2 car dmu ALN 668 1449 1456, powered car and trailer ask them to contact me. Many thanks and I hope posting this is OK? James
  9. As you know F-UnitMad I have a set of Microscale O scale 48-666 in black if anyone else out there is interested!! James.
  10. Hello. I'm pleased to say that my copy of AJRM is now in the UK, along with a few back issues!! Now need to collect it. Looking forward to a good read!!!! Anyone else ordered a copy here in the UK? Cheers. James
  11. Good morning all. Not sure if I should be telling this to 'anyone' but...oh what the neck. I've just paid for, on ebay a copy of Byways of Steam 2. It's coming to me here in the UK from Australia. Now I remembered I had a few copies already but was unable to find them all, and yes you've guessed it, which when I did find them I already had a copy of BoS 2, At this point I can say I feel very silly indeed as I'm sure no one else has ever done this!!! All this said, tongue-in-check I'm wondering if anyone may be interested in buying a copy of 'number 2' from me, please get in touch james dot lucas at blueyonder dot co dot uk Many thanks for not laughing at me, well not that I could hear anyway!!! James.
  12. Mark. I have been looking at the track plan of Mulgrave that you kindly posted back in July. Reckon this could look good on a set of baseboards 12 foot long and perhaps 2ft wide. Maybe add 2 further sidings in the form of an oil depot, using a made up station name. Do you think this could be a station plan from around the mid to late 1950's? I have to get out of my GWR mode that I've worked in for the past 50 years!!!! Thanks again for your suggestions. All I need to do now is find a UK model shop who sell NSWGR stock. Think I may have more chance of winning the lottery without buying tickets!!! Cheers. James. Bristol, UK.
  13. Australian Journal of Railway Modelling is now on sale, via their website, at Stephen Johnson Models. he also has back copies in stock by the look of it. Hope this is the start of their return. James.
  14. 5944. I do very much agree with you regarding Italian Railways being both interesting and fascinating. As far as buying models I think it prudent to check out UK suppliers first as having items sent over from Italy is on the increase, very much like deliveries from the US. Of course the down side to this is these supplies do not stock very much in the way of stuff for the FS. Yes, Ebay offers a bit more choice but as a beginner one has to be aware of the age of some of the items against what's on offer today which is excellent. I have used Tecnomodel and someone else who's name I can't recall but had a website were you could have English displayed, very helpful to us old times!! I too need to crack on with my small layout as my stock list is also coming along very nicely with the latest addition being the wonderful LE MODELS 851 004. James
  15. Hello. Thanks, that's a very helpful bit of info. james.
