  2. Lovely modelling. Hows the Metrolink Tram coming along? Boogy
  3. Hi Geoff, copyright issues but.... 5149 eases past Helwith signal box on a very wintry March 12, 1969. The locomotive was at this time allocated to Leeds Holbeck (55A), so trips over the Settle & Carlisle would be nothing unusual. The final four Class 24's had been delivered from Derby to Gateshead early in 1961. All four moved to Leeds in the summer of 1968, then all went on to Eastfield in October 1971. http://www.derbysulzers.com/5149helwith.jpg 5149 again, this time at Horton-in-Ribblesdale, involved in a shunting operation. The sidings here served the large quarry near Horton. The signal box closed on May 1st 1984. After transfer to Eastfield 5149 remained in service for one year, before catching fire on a train bound for Killoch colliery. Quickly moved to Glasgow Works the locomotive was broken up during April 1973, never receiving its TOPS number. http://www.derbysulzers.com/5149horton.jpg HTH Boogy (still banging the drums)
  4. A bit like this? http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/gallery/image/4812-two-tone-green-class-66/

  6. I seem to remember Jason used this thread as a starting point for his conversions, have a gander at the duck http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/19802-detailing-a-Hornby-black-5/?hl=brassmasters
  7. Hi Mike, love the layout, but one thing, wouldn't the lead flashing be placed over the tiles to keep the rain out rather than under? I'm not criticising, just trying to be helpful. Keep up the fabulous work. Boogy Edit due to bad english.
  8. Just had a quick and probably pathetic thought re numbering wagons. AFAIK you can buy blank transfer sheets that you are able to print what you want on, but the vast majority of colour printers do not come with white ink. So why not paint white on the wagon side where the numbers are going and just print the black rectangle 'background' of the numbers leaving the chosen numbers blank on the transfer so the white shows through. Probably been thought of before by several people and dismissed, but it would allow you to use one custom transfer per number rather than placing individual digits. Boogy
  9. If I'm being hyper critical, the only thing I would say is that the ridge tiles' apex are not sharply defined enough, but that is the cruel nature of close up photography. I've been following your posts since the previous layout and have to say that your work is of a very high standard indeed. Boogy
  10. Brush for me, or should I say ideally Metropolitan-Vickers

    You might get more answers if you asked this in the modelling-questions-help-and-tips/ section
  12. Hi Jeff, I've read all 100 pages as the thread has developed and deviated and this is my whole second post. I really like your tunnel mouth but for me (and probably only me) the arch doesn't quite look right. Looking closely at a picture of the actual tunnel mouth you are representing, the arch stones actually 'key' in with the rest of the wall rather than being on a curve on the outside. I've tried (very poorly) to illustrate what I mean below. I think trying to replicate this would turn your great model into a marvellous one but I of course leave it completely up to you. ps. You did say you were open to suggestions
  13. Hi Jeff, I'm glad you like my comment. I've always been a fan of the one-liner/micro joke. I very rarely post as I am unfortunately only an armchair modeller these days. The last layout I had was over 25 years ago when I was about 14. I've always been interested in railways both 12" to the foot and smaller scales. I generally tend to post if I can add something to the topic whether someone has asked for advice or opinion etc. My experiences are generally inferior to those of posting members in both modelling and prototype knowledge. I think you have an excellent layout and it does help I lean towards LMR as my preferred region. I've always been interested in the S&C and watching you build those curved viaducts got me hooked. I've always been a fan of a decent viaduct http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/25859-your-favourite-uk-railway-structure/page__st__50&do=findComment&comment=265250 Keep up the good work. I'll be lurking with interest, but then again now I've taken the plunge I may be bantering a bit more. Seeing as you managed to get me to break radio silence with your liking of the joke, I'll leave you with another. Cigarettes are like Weasels, perfectly harmless until you put one in your mouth and set fire to it. Boogy (I'll get my coat)
