  1. Hi Peter, hope all is well. I haven't been on here for a couple of years. Too many distractions! Just been catching up with your layout and it still looks superb. That image of 37428 gave me a flashback to when I was 14 years old stood on Shrewsbury Station! The heady days of the Cambrian Coast Express... brilliant times... Cheers Alex
  2. Looking fantastic as ever Peter. I haven't been on RMWeb for months due to various reasons so having a hefty catch up today!
  3. Tractor 284 looks in fine fettle Peter. Got any vids? Good to see some inspirational updates.
  4. Cracking stuff. One of my 'Desert Island' layouts (plus Wibdenshaw).
  5. Evening all Always a good show (I would say that as a former/distant member of EBMRS). Had a great session operating Cheriton Bishop (almost forgotten how to operate it after a 5 year absence!). Good to see Oldshaw back on show too (cheers Maggie and Alan). Well done all. Alex
  6. These will see you right Scott: http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/gallery/album/424-scottish-region-in-the-1980s/ http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/429-scottish-region-photos-1980s/ You'll be on it like Sonic mate. I always come back to these when I lose my Scottish focus. And this one for some earlier stuff: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/davidwf2009/sets/72157626232198549/ Alex
  7. Hi Scott Hope all is well with you and yours. I've enjoyed reading your thread, the transition from one idea to another, with continual evolution! I can relate to your thought process. I've made a promise to myself that I wouldn't start a layout thread until I had made full commitment to a project but yours is, as a principle, starting to take shape. At least you're not flitting between Scotland and England for your prototype (unlike yours truly). I had particularly strong thoughts on developing a rural GNSR theme, late 60's to early/mid 80's. I was planning to include steam-age infrastructure as a first port of call and work forward from there. I now have a bigger set of boards to play with but will still try and keep with the rural, slow way of life feel. I can see why you are tempted to go a bit bigger and denser with all that diesel stock! Keep us all posted on progress! Cheers Alex
  8. Hi Peter Great vids (well done to Grimley for making them accessible!). Are you building up a selection of sound loco's now? The Crompton sounded in good voice! Cheers Alex
  9. Hi all I was planning a trip out to see some freight action over the holidays. Favourite dates will be New Years Eve or 2nd/3rd Jan. Are we likely to see much action over those days? He's not the most patient (4 and a half) so I would probably only take him to the station for a couple of hours max. A trip to the Gas Cupboard may be in order afterwards to spend some hard earned Xmas money! Westbury seems a good bet given that its only an hour or so drive from home plus we have freinds nearby. Cheers Alex
  10. Great shots Dave. Any stock, modern or heritage, looks good on your layout. The problem is if you decide on more modern motive power, you might need to put some 'knitting' up!
  11. Looking good lads! I like a modern image cement themed layout!

    Dapol 'Western'

    Apologies if this question has already been asked (sorry but I can't be bothered to read through 11 pages of this thread - the photos do it for me!) but will Dapol be fitting sound chips to these models at some point in the future? I think I will be ordering a Kernow special :-)
  13. Nice weathering on 430 Scott.
  14. Just been to the WSM Exhibition. Really good afternoon out so well done to the organisers.

  19. I'd like to see more photos of this Mike.
  20. I agree with you on the price of the book. Just keep an eye on ebay - one's bound to pop up. I've just bought the following to try and keep me on the straight and narrow: British Railway Pictorial: Scottish Region 1948 to 1967 (Dickson) Diesel Days: Scotland (Dickson) Scottish Layout Projects (Futers) So when does the public consultation period expire?
  21. Great information from Graham. I know where to go if I have any questions on the area! Notwithstanding the what-actually-happened scenarios, I think the relevant point is the presence of infrastructure and buildings. As to when the freight operations ceased is down to how you decide to operate the layout. Extending fish, coal, commodity operations another 10 or 15 years could easily be plausable especially if you are operating the layout for your own satisfaction and pleasure (subject to appropriate use of stock). However, if you are showing it to the public then you may need to be prepared to deal with testing questions at exhibitions! In my view there is nothing wrong with what if scenarios and a bit of fiction to make things fit! Enjoy!
  22. Quick question or two - did the Compounds ever appear in the upper reaches of Scotland (i.e. Inverness/Aberdeen areas) back in the day? And were any allocated to sheds in those parts of Scotland in the early to mid 60's? Thanks
