  1. Hi Brian, the colliery is coming together really well. Keep up the excellent work mate. Regards, Trev.

    Afternoon Martyn, really nice to meet you at the show on Sunday. I can only echo your thoughts on how friendly it was and what an exceptional and interesting location. Well done Darlington MRC and all the exhibitors. Trev.
  3. The driving force behind the locos seen at Shirebrook would have been driver traction knowledge. I suspect the core knowledge would be 08/31/47 and only drivers which transfered to the depot from elsewhere could possibly sign anything else. Trev.
  4. The wagon bearing the initials NL is for the North Lonsdale Iron and Steel Co of Ulverston. Trev.
  5. Many Happy Returns for the day Dave. I really like this thread particularly the North East items as i originate from Northumberland and being employed on the railway everything else is interesting too. Regards, Trev.
  6. The thing to remember of course is that it is your railway. Go your own way but most importantly enjoy it. One thing i recall from all those years ago were the number of complaints we used to get about fumes from the class 56s in the offices above.
  7. Hi Ragtag, as a former resident of Ashington and Area Freight Assistant for the Blyth Area i look foward to seeing this develop. I would prefer to see access to the stabling siding from the other direction. It would cost an extra point but operationally i think it would be better. Do not forget the potential to use 153s and a 37 on an Inspection Saloon. Regards, Trev.
  8. And a belated Happy Birthday from me also Brian. The J36 looks at home. Regards, Trev.
  9. Hi Brian, this is one of those layouts that inspire people to get on with it. Being a Northumbrian by birth the whole concept of the layout brings back many memories of the locos based at North and South Blyth, Sunderland South Dock and Hartlepool in the last days of steam. Thanks for making me smile. Regards, Trev.
  10. Hi Nick, Ashington shops was re-named as a Mine Service Centre in 1993 and finally closed on 29th April 1994. As far as i am aware no surface locomotives were repaired after 1975. Trev.
  11. Hi Nick, Seaton Delaval shops closed in 1964. The work was transfered to the Area Central Workshops in Ashington. Trev.
  12. Hi Tom, great layout idea. As a man from Northumberland this type of layout always gets my attention. Does your J27 have sound? If so where did you acquire the sound files from and which combination of decoder/speaker do you use? Trev.
  13. Hi Dave, if it is for sale i would be interested in making an offer with the stock. Could you PM me with a list of the stock that is available with the layout and i can work out an offer. Trev.
  14. Does anyone know of any suitable sound files for a MAN engined diesel hydraulic? I wondered if there were any suitable German locos. Trev.
