    The North Cornwall Railway - particularly late 50s and early 60s. 72A Exmouth Junction (I'm not even admitting it got a WR shed code). Strange Bulleid stuff, N calss, T9s, Beattie Well Tanks and lots of other Southern locos. Also finding myself strangely drawn to D63xx, D1000 and D7000 classes too - surely this can't be right? Mildly amused by GWR interlopers used on the NCR and B&W lines.

    Oh, Bulleid and Maunsell coaches too - 3 Set Ls, 2 Set Ps, loose BCKs and the ACE. Nice departmental stock in black with Meldon markings. Places of particular interest include: Wadebridge shed, Padstow Station, Molesworth Crossing, Bodmin North, Boscarne Jct, Helland Bridge and Wenford Bridge.

    To provide more of a challenge, my modelling direction has recently wandered to working in 7mm / 0 Gauge. The layout is called Pencarrow and, rather unsurprisingly, is inspired by the parts of Bodmin North I can fit in the railway room. Track is being built from C&L components to 31.5 0-MF standards. The boards are now built and buildings mocked up. Stock-wise, having tackled a few Slaters and Parkside kits, I've moved on to having a go at brass kits from WEP and Connoisseur. Having been let down by Dapol producing a RTR Beattie Well Tank and unable to find a good kit alternative, I decided to have a go at building an Agenoria GWR 1366 dock tank kit. Great challenge.

    Having decided in May 2018 that I was spending way too long on railway forums, and being increasingly depressed by the posting behaviours of an increasing vocal minority, I've stopped posting publicly. I'm still checking out a few favorite threads and talking privately to folk via PM. More importantly Pencarrow continues to progress well out of the spotlight.

  1. Had a slight issue with security after taking the photos. Must have had issues with Rob previously.
  2. Strangely the sheep aren't upside down but are walking up the wall... I trust that clarifies matters.
  3. Hi Ellis Email was sent a while back to Paddy as instructed. Nothing through the post yet. Have i been missed? All the best.
  4. Simon Deepest condolences for your loss (apologies for only just seeing your news). Turning to happier matters, I've also started using Vallejo paints. Didn't get on with them to start with but after making a wet palette things much improved. My wet palette is a Chinese takeaway plastic container (with lid), a 10mm (ish) thick foam sponge in the base, and a layer of greaseproof paper on top. Put some water in the base of the container, it will dampen the greaseproof paper. Put blobs of paint on the greaseproof paper and mix to suit. The damp paper keeps the paint workable for hours. Putting the lid on has, for me, kept it workable for 6 weeks. HTH.
  5. There's more of an issue if you mix them with other coach types, such as Maunsell or Bulleid, as was common on the Southern in steam days.
  6. £40! Dapol wagons of that age have rubbish wheels and questionable accuracy. Apart from that, a bargain, you should buy it for him Ian.
  7. add in some sliding door / gate bolts to force them to align.
