  1. Hi Anthony Well, 1,248 Photo's today (Don't be surprised at that...lol) I have been out to Conwy Station and Castle Area's and the building on Rosehill Street, The Guild Building it's called, as the Information centre told me, I have plenty of photo's for you, that I can upload. I did attempted to beach side the front of the Penmeanmawr Viaduct today, despite being there hour before low tide at 8:34 am (29th February 2020) but I attempted from the Llanfairfechan side, but to rocky and fair bit of rocks to climb across, and humorously slipped 3 times on the Rocks, I felt

    Hornby APT 2020

    Hi stovepipe Yes, and it's 370 005 & 370 006 or 370 007 (Built as a Spare) is the running numbers I want most, more than any of the numbers they have released, for the very reason you have stated... the most commonly used. I do hope Hornby release a New Second APT-P Set in 2021 or even announce it before hand, my order would be in ASAP... along with the 48#05 & 48#06 Twin Packs, that would be excellent and then Every Number Released, I just hope they have that in the Pipeline, I guess they will need to see how good or quick the APT-P fly's of the shelves, befo
  3. Is that the name the Class 800/801/802 have been given is it... SNAKES...? Interesting... that's a first for me, but then I don't get them in my neck of the woods... Regards Jamie
  4. Hi SRman Very colourful livery, I like the SWT livery... Looks really smart... How do you find the putting the vinyl overlays on a coach, are they straight forward or can they be a bit of a pain to get right or in the correct place...? Nice Work though... Regards Jamie
  5. Hi, My own Artist impression in adapting my photo, Excuse the crude image of... but the building would have been roughly there... Regards Jamie
  6. Hi Below... is the looking towards second tunnel or Avalanche Tunnel.... Regards Jamie
  7. Hi, The Photo you have uploaded Anthony, the photo below will show where I must be standing within what use to be those buildings... Regards Jamie
  8. I guess, I can possibly take a photo of this area, looking down from the A55, if I walk towards the Viaduct from the end of Penmeanmawr end If I had have done I may have spotted those two bridges much earlier on rather than walk from Llanfairechan end of the A55 as I did, which I will the next time I go for more photos of the Viaduct. Regards Jamie
  9. I couldn't agree more for Anthony braveness and insight to even take on such a project... I just wish WE could fly over and see the layout in person... Yes the Photo's of his work and those Rocks look superb... Anthony... have you been to North Wales many time on Holiday then...?... in order to take on such project and yet alone the distance you are, I think, it is that, that make even more interesting... for you to have the inspiration to take on the project. Regards Jamie
  10. Wow... Anthony... That's picture says it all, I have never come across that photo before, so I was mostly correct in my photos and thinking it was a single road track way of some sort. That building or Two buildings look great, I never knew they ever existed.. funny, though I never said in my posts above, while I was walking towards the second Avalanche tunnel, I did wonder if that was all tracks at one point in time before the flyover aka A55 was constructed or a building of some kind, although I would have gone for Engine or Wagon Sheds, so It been great to see that
  11. Ah Lezz Thanks very kind of you to say, and the information makes good sense to... I have plenty of photo's in the Pipeline, I just hope no one thinks I'm uploading to many lol I took 1300 Photo on Thursday, of Bangor Station and Engine Sheds, Hanson Aggregates of the Mining area and conveyor belts system and includes a fair few In the above photo's I uploaded last night. Thank you for your support in the photo's and in Anthony achieving his dream of the layout he is modelling the area on. Regards Jamie

    Hornby APT 2020

    Hi Alan Very Informative Information, the wheels part, explain's it perfectly. However the last part did make me laugh, where you said (assuming Hornby don't make the trailers out of lead).... lol Thanks again Alan Regards Jamie
  14. Hi SRman Thank you for that my friend, I guess they drop under gravity and if they weigh a ton... then, yes they will drop like a lead balloon. Interesting Link on YouTube, that was a great find, to show. Regards Jamie
  15. Hi Lee Which livery came first out of those two Lee...? and do you know how many year of each different type of livery lasted for (Year to Year...etc...)...? Great work...., you always impress me with your detailed work. Regards Jamie
  16. Superb Dave, as always... s it ever possible to go a bit overboard on the (mainly Scottish) 47s.... Nooooo... Jamie

    New Hornby Rocket

    Hi Agree for the most part The Black Hat When it is an Hatton's own make or production run of an item, Class 66's, RHTT, YOB Crane still to be released, surely they are much closer to the required numbers, however, I guess they can only base that off pre-orders for the guaranteed numbers, but they have sold enough stock over time to understand what percentage on average over the counter or online orders are placed, without those who pre-order. Whatever percentage on top the counter order or online orders...is, excluding those who pre-order the item, they should be able to add those
  18. Hi SRman Very interesting layout, I like the building work you have done. I like that Blue and Orange Line 4-Car Set... unit 319 388, is that an Australia loco or older UK stock...? It look smart... Regards Jamie
  19. Hi Below...is the Slimmer Bridge of the two together... We are looking towards Penmeanmawr just round the corner, with second Avalanche tunnel, behind me in the photo below.... I said earlier, I wonder if this used to be one Tunnel, and I conclude this by the stones seen sticking out of the walls as seen on the Left, which if you notice seems to be at the same level with the starting point of the Arch of the bridge in the photo (above and below), hence the cut out, in the wall for workmen to stand in when I train is passing... (seen in the photos bel

    Win/Win then John, Bonus, Drinks all round for that one John ... yay That's a point... I wonder if oversea's buyer's stand a much higher chance than the people in the UK and getting a LTD Ed... Jamie

    New Hornby Rocket

    Sorry to hear about that John, I feel your pain on that mate, I am still mad about it now with the RHTT's. Customer service and a good customer reputation surely is key to a successful business, but It seems to be only Hatton's by the sounds of it... I just don't understand, as they must know what figure Hornby have said what numbers they are having up front, before Hatton's even List it on there website, so why accept more order's than they are actually receiving in the first place... its NUTS... bad management... I think Hatton's think they are invincible now they have become a m

    New Hornby Rocket

    Hi Paul I totally know where you are coming from, on that. My RHTT, I had to by off eBay, and lucky only £12 more than the Hatton's price, but even so, I had it on Pre-Order for over a year, and I even notified them and they put a note on my file the week before they came in to stock, in to Hatton's... I don't thing Pre-Order guarantees you nothing today, well certainly from Hatton's, regardless of any Pre-Order, Hatton's are just interested in SALES, SALES and SALES, First come First Served, don't worry about the Pre-Orders... Crazy logic... No customer care whatsoever...!
  23. Hi Below is the First of the Two Together, (If I refer to them as Single Track and Slim Bridge together), and virtually right underneath the A55 Dual Carriageway... as you can see from the photos, the concrete pillars holding up the carriageway. Regards Jamie
  24. Hi (Apologise for the repeat Post and photos in the above, not sure how that happened) Below... is the Wall that raised up above track level, which made me think, is there a bridge.... (the Sea is directly behind me) Below is the Track at the end of the stone walls from the side view of the two photo's above, and the photo below leads up to the two extra bridges.... (The Sea is more to the Left of me in this photo below now...) Regards Jamie
  25. Hi Funny on the Above Post Photo..., the Photo above with the signal facing the second Avalanche tunnel, I thought the railway track when through the tunnel straight, due to earlier photo's of zooming in from a far and I through the second Avalanche tunnel, made me think the railway entered the tunnel straight, which it may well do, once it enters the second Avalanche tunnel, and that's what I all so thought when I was taking the Signal / Tunnel Photo in the Above Post... how wrong could I have been... I came across original stock wall that seemed to go off to one side
