  1. Loughborough..... A 'proper' railway station.
  2. Boyle St, or Manchester Museum of Transport?
  3. If I had a quid for every time I explained how the Magnorail cyclist worked.... Grime Street or more accurately the, erm posterior of Grime St Merseyside MRS show, Birkenhead Oct 2015
  4. Watched 5 mins of said channel..... Would rather planish my plums with a ball pein hammer than watch anymore.... So not really gonna take a look...
  5. Unless there is something pushing down on the gear wheels they do tend to disengage, I built one of the very early red link ones and found this to be the case then.
  6. That's Pete Whiteley's layout, as far as I know it doesn't have a name other than Pete Whitley's layout.... Pete is heavily involved at Crich and manages to get some of the more difficult electrical bits to operate as they were intended to....explains how he can do illuminated 4mm stuff too, lots of leds and lots of soldering, I may be wrong on this but I think he had some involvement with the 7mm illuminated car on Chesfield shown earlier.
  7. Facebook....2 groups Tramway Modelling and Model Tramways.
  8. Ok, my 2p worth, there are a good few layouts out there, most won't feature on here as the most active tram modelling online resources are on FB. Personally whilst I built a reasonably successful tram layout , I don't consider my myself as purely a tram modeller.... hence my presence here. Regarding the Festival of model tramways, that is a whole different game. The festival was a privately run show, it wasn't a TLRS show, I became somewhat disenchanted at exhibiting there after doing quite a few....no expenses were paid and to a London show would cost me at least 2-3
  9. That's Bob Wardle's Chesfield tramways.....Show would have been at Bob Heathcote's central methodist church in middle of Sheffield, Bob (H) was minister there and also founder/memb sec/chairman etc of Model Bus Federation, so ran a smallish show there.
  10. Here's anther 'old layout' I was involved with a little bit. County End built by a friend of mine, I helped with the track a bit, originally set in Oldham, now the property of the Yorks area MBF, shown here with a couple of 'Yorks area' vehicles!
  11. Built by Andy Ross....some info here...
  12. Glasgow was 4 ft 7 3/4 to allow std gauge wagons to run on their flanges in the groove. Huddersfield also adopted the same gauge with a view to moving coal.
  13. If you want a Birmingham car, then the old 1/72 Keil Kraft kit might be an option, normally go for under a tenner on ebay whilst not 4mm, not far off, easily motorised too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=keil+kraft+tram&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=0&LH_Sold=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=HD74AR&_sargn=-1%26saslc%3D1&_salic=3&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_ipg=200&LH_Complete=1&_fosrp=1
