  1. Mikkel, that is brilliant! All the best, Nick.
  2. Hi Rich, I've really enjoyed catching up with your thread this evening; the layout is really starting to take shape. All the best, Nick.
  3. Hello, I'm not an expert on SR livery, but I've seen some good models painted in Vallejo paints. I use the Vallejo range for figure painting and some building repaints. I know Andrew's vehicle is in LSWR livery, but the brown looks very similar to the variant used by the SR after grouping. Mikkel has produced a couple of LSWR vehicles using Vallejo paints: Interesting thread here: I hope that is of some help. Kind regards, Nick.

    Greetings, Due to a change of interest, I am seeking new homes for some non-Western Region locomotives and stock. I have tried to price items up fairly and hope someone else can enjoy the models rather than them languishing in their boxes for another 6 years! Offered for sale are a trio of Bachmann Birdcage coaches 39-601, 39-611 and 39-621 presented in Southern Railway lined olive green. These are essentially a brand new models. Purchased in 2015 after a visit to the Bluebell Railway, bar initial testing, haven't run since. The models are still in pristine condition and are quite stunning. I'm happy to sell the coaches individually at £55 a coach, or £150 for the complete set. Postage would be an additional £7 (Royal Mail first class and signed for). I am happy to accept online back transfer, or PayPal (with money being sent via friends and family). Please send a PM if you are interested. Kind regards, Nick.

    Greetings, Due to a change of interest, I am seeking new homes for some non-Western Region locomotives and stock. I have tried to price items up fairly and hope someone else can benefit from the model. Offered for sale is a Bachmann 4F 43924 (31-882) presented in BR unlined black with late crest. This is essentially a brand new model. Purchased in 2014 from Dave Harding's shop in Exeter, the model, bar running in and annual testing, hasn't been used - it hasn't seen any layout use. The model is still in pristine condition and runs incredibly smoothly on DC through the speed range. The detailing pack is present and unopened. £95 including Royal Mail First Class Signed for postage. I am happy to accept online back transfer, or PayPal (with money being sent via friends and family). Please send a PM if you are interested. Kind regards, Nick. It does have it's outer sleeve.

  8. You have been busy, Brian. Top stuff, sir. Kind regards, Nick.
  9. I'm a little bit late to the party... but... isn't this an exciting development! I'm really impressed with your work, Wayne: I can't wait to see the finished products. All the best, Nick.
  10. Nice little project; I shall watch with interest! Kind regards, Nick.
  11. I do like the dual station at Launceston. GWR/SR modeller's dream - different companies stock, legitimately running along side eachother.
  12. Hello! Marytavy is an interesting case. When the LSWR had running rights from Lydford to Plymouth, the GWR installed the second platform and passing loop to enable a more frequent service. However, this was a relatively short-lived piece of Launceston branch infrastructure. Once the LSWR had completed their line from Lydford to Plymouth, the GWR removed the passing loop (1890ish). The signalling was removed at the same time, with the signal box assigned a new role as a goods 'lock-up': a ground frame installed to work the siding. All traffic was dealt with by the 'dow
  13. Hello! I am here, but haven't any modelling time since returning to work in September. I have a Year 6 class this year, and they are very far behind due to lockdown. Some of them did nothing at all between March and September... Anyway, half term starts next Friday at 3:30! So hopefully I'll be able to do some modelling again in between ripping up carpet and repainting upstairs (ha!). Cheers, Nick.
  14. Don't worry about hijacking the thread at all. I'm always interested to learn more about the Branch. A copy of E Lyons Historical Survey of Great Western Engine Sheds has arrived and been most useful - the GWR standard running shed diagram will be used to help inform the building drawing (height and fittings etc). Unless anyone knows of the location of the actual drawing? Regards, Nick.
