  1. Dave I like it. Modelling midland three throws is a swine, I know ,I've tried in EM. I'me Building a shed layout as well but haven't got the space for 7mm. I too aim to be finished sometime in the late 20's. I live in hopes. Regards and stay safe in these troubled times. Tony
  2. I do like the interlaced timbering on the point work. Quite common on Midland Branch lines and Goods Stations at the turn of the 20th Century and for some time afterwards. Tony
  3. Please remind me to engage brain before replying. Tony
  4. I must agree. A picture of Princess Beatrice in the "British Single Driver" is what got me interested in the Midland Railway Co. That and trying to give up smoking!! Tony
  5. Hi Eric. for some reason I've not been informed of updates. It's all looking good. Tony
  6. Hi Steve, I tried printing out on A4 sheets and the pictures are OK. If better resolution is required they will print out full size in Pictures. Tricky if you are reading this as well section 6 (page6?) on the Midland Railway Company Post will give it to you. Regards Tony
  7. Tricky can I go back to track work for a minute. I published drawings of Midland track work, Switches crossings and the dreaded three way switch in the topic Midland Railway Company. All info there except the radii of the turnout stock rails. Hope this helps Tony
  8. At last the range of Midland Goods waggons is back with Slaters. Prices are Opens: £9.00 with VAT Vans and the Brake £12.00 with VAT Thank you Slaters
  9. Hi Tricky had a bit of a senior moment with Southwold. I meant Southwell on the Newark Mansfield Branch of the Midland. Sorry about that. Tony
  10. Good idea but most engine sheds on the Midland were pretty big but something like Wirksworth or Southwold might fit. Have a look in Loco Sheds of the LMS (Midland Division). I think that's the Title. Incidentally your modelling is superb. Regards Tony
  11. Hi Steve Downloaded the information from the sources given. Very useful and makes hiding weights in trucks a lot easier.As i'm modelling a Goods Yard the comments regarding sheeting are very relevant so thanks. Tony
  12. There are now lists of available products on the following web site:http://www.midlandrailway.org.uk/modelling/. These currently cover 2mm,4mm and some 7mm scales. Regards Tony
  13. Using aluminium angle is an easy way of getting everything lined up easily. Cut 3inch lengths of 1 inch angle if modelling in OO or you can go smaller, I use 15mm in EM. Gauge to your track and fix down with packing to rail height. You can then screw suitable lengths of the chosen angle to MDF backing and pack up to the same height as the rails. Use small bulldog clips to align and conduct current. Remember a lot of aluminium is anodized and this coating will have to be removed as it's an insulator. Good luck, it works for me and a lot of friends.
