  1. That's a great set of signals you've produced so far Jonathan, great work. Love the flow of the trackwork in the photo's as well... Excellent. Joe
  2. Good to see you back Al. Great to see you're modelling again, especially modelling a bit of C&HPR, my favourite railway. One of the most unique railways ever built I think. Looks of quirky features, from signals to inclines, incredibly sharp bends etc ! A bit of everything. good luck with your new adventure... joe
  3. After building this layout over several years, an imminent house move has forced the closure of the line. Can't blame 'Mr Beeching' for this one ! When a new property is found, I'm sure a new layout will be built...... so for the time being, points are being recovered and electrical equipment stored, ready for the future. I plan to make my next layout with the running of Hornby live steam a priority. Many things have been learnt and much information gained from fellow RMwebbers, so hopefully the next layout will be another step forward. joe
  4. Have you checked your internet download speed? I've been having on line chat with TalkTalk this evening, as our broadband is VERY slow and the symptoms are slow loading pictures. Main page loads ok ( but slow) but pictures take much longer. regards Joe

    Yes, I've used them over several years, both for use with parts for constructing my layout and recently, for cable and connectors for a solar panel install on a Motorhome - I found them excellent. joe
  6. Two years later ! !... and finally the signals are solenoid operated. Just been in the shed wiring up the coils to a 'Center Off' SPST switch. I can use this to select the signals to go with the train direction. A bit basic, but it works.... whats been happening in two years? Not a lot to be honest, but really enjoy running Hornbys Live Steam locomotives.... joe
  7. Does this help?? joe Bachmann Products List.pdf
  8. Think its 30% commission for Internet bidders...... worth remembering....before getting carried away !
  9. Whilst contracting at a Watercress factory in Hampshire, I came across the photo of how they used to transport the watercress to the factory.... But thought it might be a source of info/inspiration ! I just love the gentleman driver! Perhaps he was the owner? sorry for the quality, its a phone picture of a photograph. joe
  10. Hi, a friends late Dad had this "Hassop" key in his collection of Model railway / Railwayana - is it possible that the " Hassop" key is Railway related. If I search for Signal box key, the images are always for much more 'modern' looking items. This appears to be much older, seems strange to have a key marked 'Hassop'. Amy thoughts / help on if it it you think it could be related to the railway infrastructure at Hassop station, in Derbyshire. I don't have the key in my possession, so can't currently answer any specific questions about its detail, but I shall see it next Saturday... best regards Joe
  11. Layouts that have great looking realistic track work, but then have left those great big blobs of plastic on the ends of the Peco Tie bar ! - ( obviously applies to layouts with electrically / mechanically operated points )
  12. Hi, you could ask here maybe.....?? https://www.threlkeldquarryandminingmuseum.co.uk/vintage-excavator-trust/ regards Joe
  13. Today was a run for Hornby A4 Live steam loco Dweight D Eisenhower with a rake of 9 MK1 stock. On the lower level can be seen J94 with Blue Circle Presflo wagons....
  14. A couple more runs today, this time with 'Mallard' at the front..... joe
  15. some spare time yesterday, so first Live Steam runs of 2018..... joe
