  1. Hi all, So its been a long time since the last post for various reasons but I thought it was about time we popped an update up. So we have had a couple of working weekends, which we have had to keep under wraps as we had the pleasure to do some test runs of new items for a manufacter. the following photos will give it away Whilst we spent some time playing trains working hard for them, we did mange to get some work done on the layout to reduce the list of jobs ready for the next trip out. With regards to the next trip out we have bee
  2. The layout depicted here is an imaginary what if scenario based on if the Grand Central railway had remained open in the 1980s. The layout is based on the real location of Charwelton. The layout is a scale 1/2mile section from Catesby Tunnel to the Church street road Bridge to the south of the Village. INFORMATION FOR EXHIBITIONS 4mm/16.5 Layout Size: 36ft x 12ft Total space including operating space needed: 40ft x 15ft. Operators: 6-8 Power: 3 x 13amp socket Accommodation required: 3 x Twin rooms.
  3. Instead of mirrors under bridges to make layouts look bigger, we will have to start putting them under the track so we can all see whats on the bottom of Accurascale stuff!!
  4. Or instead of guessing and causing a barrage of emails to them, as I'm sure they will be busy coming up with other lovely models for us to buy in the future, wanting to know where thier models are..... We all could wait for those nice guys at Accurascale to let us know that they have arrived in the UK like they have done with all the other models they have done......
  5. Have a look to see if the coupling NEM pocket is fully pushed in to its holder as this can cause the couplings to hang down lower that normal if they are not fully home.
  6. HI James, Just to correct you slightly as most sound Locos in the UK use F1 to turn the sound on and off and the latest generation uses it to fade the sound on and off whilst the loco is moving. The Americans and a few other countries us the F8 method that you have mentioned.
  7. Have to agree with you on that plus and I've been bitten by Hattons on this a couple of times and don't pre-order anything with them. The most recently issue was with the RHTT wagons when i got a unpleasant phone call from them so politly asked then to cancel the order. Once bitten twice shy.
  8. I'm sorry but too many people expect to be spoon fed everything these days and that just isn't possible when dealing with hundreds of customers at the same time. I found out about it via an email from them before it was posted up on Rmweb which is the correct way to do the marketing. You can't expect them to contact every single person persoanlly to say sorry we decided to suspend this project. Bachmann is great for cancelling things and not telling any one about it until you suddenly think where is X model and go to Bachmann to check. The project is mentioned in the p
  9. They ran very freely. Hope to recreate something similar when the 37s arrive and we can triple head them!!!! BUT I have this feeling that we may run out of track and stock before they start to show any sign of slowing down!!! Many thanks for allowing us to have a play with the samples.
  10. Mike, YOU complain.....never Yes there is a plan B and we are just working it out at the moment......well we have the plan and it’s in place but we just need add content to it and then we will go live. Plus I’m sure some of it will end being posted by those nice Irish lads we know @Accurascale Fran in their section of the forum. cheers Simon
  11. For what we did with the wagons its advisable I'm sure the Accurascale guys will show everyone at some point.
  12. Hello all, I know this is going to be a very large shot in the dark but I'm looking for the Falcon Brassworks Huges Steam Railmotor kit to complete the stock list for my L&YR layout. Happy to consider any part built kits (with all the parts there) that people may have started and decided not to continue with. I think the product code is LK54 Many thanks Simon
  13. he did say possibly for up to 6 months. As you mention things my change as 6 months time is a while away.
  14. As you say the rules are missleading but if you stick to the main ones then you should be ok. Ive been involved with a local support group to help those shelding and we work closely with the council and we have had the following info given to us and its updated as and when. You can say open but no more than 6 people at a time indoors, the famous 'bubble'. You can't mix bubbles, so say one member wanted to go and work on a difffent layout then they wouldn't be able too. If members are living in a local lockdown area then they shouldn't be leaving thier homes unless shop
