  1. 2 Pieces of Extruded Polystyrene, ideal for baseboards, free to a good home. Must be collected from Taunton area by next weekend, otherwise they're going to the tip. Both are 200 x 60 x 6.5 cm.
  2. Never finished. They're still sat on my workbench in pretty much the same state, only with more dust.

    The End.

    Thanks for the unexpected words of support everyone - that never crossed my mind, I saw this as more of a sales pitch :-) BTW, if anyone does want the layout, PM me and make me an offer. This decision has been a long time coming, so there's no chance of wanting to go back to 4mm scale. The 7mm stuff is staying for now - there's more chance of me getting back into that at some point in the future.

    The End.

    In the immortal words of Jim Morrison: This is the end, beautiful friend This is the end, my only friend, the end Of our elaborate plans, the end. I'm never going to complete this layout - I've lost enthusiasm for modelling in general and 4mm scale in particular. If anyone is interested in buying an EM layout that is virtually complete track-wise, needing a little bit of wiring, along with various bits and pieces to complete, such as buffer stops, electrical bits plus some other bits, drop me a PM. Pretty much all of my 4mm stock will be cleared out at some point in the not too distant
  5. In the last post, I wrote about the track and wiring putting me off doing anything with the layout. I don't think that was the case in the end, the lack of progress with the layout was another symptom of my wider modelling malaise but I'm really glad I went down the route that I did in getting somebody else to do the bulk of the track and wiring. This update is long overdue in a couple of ways. One in as much as that this is the first update to this blog in two years, and the fact that the layout came back to the South West last year, and attended the annual SWAG members day as a last minu
  6. Thanks for the comments everyone - I wasn't expecting that kind of response!
  7. Yes, it's been a while. It's been a very long while, in fact. Following the completion of the 37, I didn't really feel like doing any modelling at all. I think that, perhaps, a part of that was me thinking about how I could top that, and not coming up with anything, so nothing was done. I've now come to the conclusion that I don't have to top it, I just have to do something I'm going to find enjoyable. As a self confessed tank wagon perv it seemed only natural to ease myself back in with some tanks, so to that end, a couple of weeks ago 5 of my Bachmann TTA stash found their way onto m
  8. I was right, it was My Replica/MJT VEP is still a collection of parts under my workbench.
  9. Now sorted, thanks!
  10. I don't know why, but I think it's a Prairie tank of some description.
  11. According to this, it wasn't Southern National: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_National Unfortunately, it doesn't mention what it would have been. It could have been Devon General though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devon_General
  12. MTK lives! Shame really, I wanted one of the TS's to make a 455/7, but won't be using that as the basis.
  13. This one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Behind-Crumbling-Edge-Nationalized-Railway/dp/1857766105 Or possibly this one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Southern-Electric-Driver-Tim-Wood/dp/185414376X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1439380891&sr=1-1&keywords=southern+electric+driver
  14. No problem. That is a refurbished one - the grey panelling, strip lighting and revised luggage racks are the clues.
  15. If you replicate something like this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/78/British_Railways_Mark_1_RMB_1869_Interior.JPG You won't be too far wrong, IMO.
  16. In the US it's done with radio, but I'm not aware of anything like that in use in the UK.
  17. Are you going to be on her Phil? If so, and I'm not doing anything that weekend, I'll pop down to say hello.
  18. AFAIK, the Fitzgerald traffic was always VGA vans. HTH Edit - Read the whole thread before posting!
  19. Thanks. Perhaps I should try to convince TCMP (The Current Mrs Pugsley) that we should visit NC on our next trip stateside!
