  1. Paul, Those drawing/pictures are perfect. But looking through all of the sample pages on the website I don’t see any dimensions. Am I missing them? i don’t have anything particular in mind, but I do have the ability to draw and 3D print most things. If you look in my post footers you will see I have a Layout called Loch Lorn. I’m thinking about turning it into a RhB layout but before I make that step I would like to be able to actually draw some of the stock so that I don’t have to rely on Kato or the over priced Shapeways. To give you an idea why I say Shapeways is overpriced is that I can currently print a BR MK1 coach for about £3 costs on Shapeways that would be £20 ish. to give you an idea of what I’m able to do please see the attached photo of a EPB unit I have draw and printed. Cheers Carl
  2. Paul, Thanks for that information. Those books do look very expensive. The other option I could take to draw them in CAD is using photos that are taken roughly 90 degrees to them. But then i need to know the one of the dimensions. I.e length, width or height the software can then scale that pic to the correct size. I did find some photos end on the site you suggested above. Any suggestions for the dimenstions would be helpful. Cheers Carl
  3. Hi all, Can anyone point me in the direction of any stock diagrams please? I have a 3D printer and would like to see if I can draw up some items to print at home. At this point I’m happy to have a go at anything (coaches, wagons or containers) Cheers Carl
  4. Hi all, A little update on how the layout is coming along. I have wired all dsubs to the tracks and created all the looms to go to the control panels. At the moment moment I am waiting for a mate to draw up the control panels for me. While he he is doing that I am making a start on other things. first on the list is to redo the C&W building as the layout is being turned and the back of the building which would have been up against the rear back scene is now at the front of the layout so I actually have to put in all the windows that I lazily left off. Either I can do it with the original building or I will have to completely redo the building. cheers Carl

  7. Hi, im thinking about joining in on this. Can I ask what is available building wise for this scale, or is it all needing scratchbuilding? I assume 1:160 would look a bit odd. carl
  8. Hi all, its been a little while since I posted an update on how this project is progressing. All the Dsubs for the boards are wired to the track. This works out at about 500 connections. Today i have made 3 of the 15 looms to run from the boards to the control panels. plans are to have trains running by the by the end of the Summer, then have a nice long running session to make sure everything runs well before progressing the scenery. Cheers Carl
  9. Hi, Heres a photo of Hither Green, Thanks for the invite. cheers Carl
  10. Spent the last few hours working on a couple of N gauge Society kits. The first and most simple is a Warflat. The wagon I’m modelling was transferred to the Power Supply department at Horsham. I assume it was used as a brake force runner as I am unaware of any photos with it being loaded. The second kit is a Weltrol MC. I wanted a model of a Weltrol MV which has a deck 5’ shorter, so once the wagon was constructed I set to with a razor saw and have chopped out a section approx 10mm. For extra support I have glued a section of plasticard to the bottom of the well. This wagon was also based at Horsham and I have a photo of it loaded with a Transformer. I have purchased a 3D printed one from N brass, although the actual transformer is taller this model makes an excellent representation of it. Time now for prime and paint.
  11. Yes Paul that’s the plan. would you mind if I sent this image to Railtec to see if he will make the transfers for it? cheers Carl
  12. Hi all, Finally got round to knocking this wagon up from a Chivers BR Tube and a Parkside Pipe. Its a simple cut and shut job, just needing to make sure you keep the cuts square. Photo of the wagon has it placed next to a Standard BR Tube. Cheers Carl
  13. Hi All I had a really good time over the weekend and i would like to thank Andy and all the team from the Ivanhoe club for their efforts putting on the show. I had loads of nice feed back for my layout and some great conversations. Here are a few photos of Hither Green. Cheers Carl
