  1. Got a real heft to it. Have one on preorder. Looking forward to seeing it when it finally arrives.
  2. I like it a lot. Lovely clean classic look. Hope the interior lives up to the exterior
  3. I suppose better that than being called "Queen Mary II"
  4. It depends on the type of bridge. Some have a metal trough which is full of ballast and ordinary track sits on that. An alternative has been mentioned above timbers stretch between the two girders and on top of that two longitudinal timbers sit with the rails running along those. This latter type is more difficult to model as you'll have to buy some chairs for the rails to sit in and of course make sure you keep the rails to gauge.
  5. Not sure there is a "London road" in Leeds, but happy to be corrected. Certainly a "Little London", although whether anyone would want to alight there is debatable. Both Leeds market place and Leeds cloth hall would have surely been called "Leeds Kirkgate". As perhaps would Leeds corn exchange. Dean
  6. One on eBay now https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Superquick-OO-HO-Gauge-Modern-Shops-and-Flats-Card-Kit-Low-Relief/274446331131?pageci=baf42a21-9ae7-4527-95cc-a98536873c69 If still looking
  7. Now that's what I call steam punk
  8. In tune with our times, a hospital train. I'll get my coat...
  9. Sorry I can't help but I remember those two plus the police station, timber framed cottages, pair of shops (one of which was timber framed). Sometimes come up on ebay. Worth keeping an eye out.
  10. Hard to believe I posted this four years ago and only last week put them on my shapeways shop! https://www.shapeways.com/product/S3LS96ZUS/gound-signal-double-stack?optionId=166325804&li=shops I originally ordered them in superfine plastic - see above - never got round to putting them on the layout and after some rough handling some of the lever arms snapped. I expect they would be fine if actually installed. However I've also made them available in steel which I expect would be sturdier. Rovex

    New Hornby Rocket

    With new coaches being produced could we see other types of early locos or rolling stock?
  12. Looks good. I was wondering how you were getting on with the hotel.
  13. well photo 5 looks like 1 Hawksworth corridor brake third 2 Hawksworth corridor first 3 Mark 1 corridor third 4 Mark 1 corridpr brake third Photo 2 looks like 1 Hawksworth corridpt brake third 2 I think this is a collett corridor third (I think its a 60ft, as opposed to 57ft) 3 This appears to be a corridor composite (looks like a yellow line above half the wondows - but I could be mistaken), and again a collett - but not sure whether 57ft or 60ft. Sorry those are my best guesses
  14. The coaches represent an all third and a brake composite. You can buy a composite but it's just a fraudulent paint job. I have placed comet coach composite sides on one to create a proper composite. The model is two mm too long for the sides. I also understand the model coach windows are not deep enough and that the old mainline/replica versions have the correct depth windows. It's likely that other comet sides can be used to create other types. It is disappointing that Bachmann haven't announced any new versions but even if they did you could probably create upgrades befor
  15. I suppose it depends on what contest they signed when the article was bought of them. Even so for the likes of Allan Downes or P D Hancock the executors must be known
