  1. And if you want to keep the prices down, make your own frogs and switch blades. Not to hard to do mainly a couple of good files and some elbow grease. C&L point kits work out very expensive, so make your own but use their parts. Martyn.
  2. Hi, Could anyone tell me if Touchcab is still operating as it should? I have just updated my iPhone to an X-R and I have a few issues... cheers, Martyn.
  3. I have put a joggle in the trackwork below, there are various methods to obtain this and it works fine in OMF. Looking at the photos I hope you can see my efforts. Regards, Martyn.
  4. Another late reply, if there's anybody interested there is a full size Barry Slip at Ropely on the Mid Hants line. Martyn.
  5. My box of goodies turned up today, and they certainly look the business, look even better once I get them weathered.
  6. Evening Dave, Amazing layout, I always look forward to your updates. Regarding the trees, I do not think there are ever enough trees adorning most layouts, so more the merrier in my opinion. Regards, Martyn.,
  7. Hi Simon, I wouldn't be without Touchcab, no leads, ease of use and even I could set it up without breaking into a sweat. I haven't heard any news of it being withdrawn, I certainly hope not fingers crossed. All the best, Martyn.
  8. Come and join us, 7mm is the way to go..... : )
  9. Thank you Chris, I must admit the use of my air brush is not very appealing especially this time of year, so I will have a go with your methods. All the best, Martyn.
  10. Hi Chris, Very well done, was this achieved with an air brush or just weathering powders? Regards, Martyn.
  11. Hi Rod, It all depends on what type of fire station you are going for. A normal 24 hr covered station will usually have a 5 floor training tower. Whereas some, usually the larger stations will also have a BA training centre which would consist of a couple of industrial looking buildings and an old 40 ft steel container. These containers were a baptism of fire to the recruits, if they didn't come out with blisters on their ears they weren't doing the job properly...... Mind you it's all changed since I started, you cannot even say " manhole cover " nowadays just " personnel cover".... Still I'll leave it there. Martyn.
  12. Merry Christmas Simon, I have just shown my wife your amazing layout and she reckons you must live on site, in the first photo that you have put up today the wife reckons in the left hand corner you have your washing hanging up ! : ) Anyway all the best and keep up the good work, Martyn.
  13. Hi Steve, Are they Severn mill plates? Now it looks like I'll need a set : ) Martyn.
