  1. I currently have two cardboard bits that i have used to make this layout: However, I was not happy with the layout even though it looked good. i needed more space to do what i wanted to do.
  2. The final volume of my Lancashire Derbyshire & East Coast Railway trilogy is now available for sale through the publishers (Fonthill Media), or the usual outlets. This one takes a look back at the proposals for the railway through newspaper and parliamentary reports, the route it was supposed to take, and other snippets. It also covers the Mansfield Railway and Mid Notts Joint Line connections.

  5. Edit: Pictures of modelling starts at Page 3 as Photobucket decided to completely ruin the fun. Greetings! Good Evening! Hello there, I'm Jimmy, and welcome to... JIMMY'S WORK BENCH STOOL! I'm rather new here in terms of posting, so don't kill me if I get things wrong ^^; .... but I'm sure I'll get the hang of things... I would also like to note that these posts are coming from another site I am on, so it's mainly copy from that to this... Anyways, onto the trains! From a young age (14 to be exact) I've always enjoyed railway modeling and creating fictional railways. It is only until the last year where I could really do anything good with what I had and start modelling my fictional railway of The Great Northern and Western Railway. Much inspired by various people, I've decided to freelance most of the engine designs and modify Ready-to-Run models. More info on the GN&WR later or ask if your interested... Now then, what should we start with to model first? ... How about something that hasn't really been done before? ... I have just the thing... What about a Neilson Box Tank! Quite a unknown engine to most of you I suppose... But, have they really been modeled in OO gauge? ... From what I see... Nope I will admit, my first attempts rather failed didn't go quite as planned.. but I shall not show them due to how awful they are Anyways, this lovely little loco of which I have been trying to model for a good 3 years I decided to name Prince, after my family name... Ladies and gentlemen, I give you... "Prince" Mk. 5 He currently sits on a Hornby Pug chassis, which has been altered and motor removed to fit the body of the engine on I even built custom cylinders too... The black bit is the remains of the old one, so I put them to use and the sides of the "cab" Put it together and what have we got? That all I did in the day, but when the next day came I carried on doing more work to Prince. Not much I can say about the body or chassis at the moment... I will plan on motorizing Prince here or any other box tanks I do in the future sometime... Any suggestions? While sorting out me modeling desk stool, I came across some wooden strips, so I put them to use as Prince's buffer beam Gluing wasn't easy I can tell you (Edit - Becuase I clearly don't know how to use proper modelling equipment to help me) Buffer beam in place and nicely glued Last night I started to work on the cylinders that had quite a few pieces stolen from the old ones Prince certainly looks the part now! The "cab" pieces and cylinders aren't glued in, only blue tacked just to see how it looks... More updates soon, don't know when though saying that, Until next time

  8. This week Steve Cole and I paid a flying visit to the massive Intermodellbau modelling show in the German city of Dortmund. Having promised myself a visit for several years, I knew it was big but nothing could quite prepare us for the sheer scale of the event. Attendance reaches almost 100,000 over the five days, with exhibits spread across eight exhibition halls and covering model railways (2 halls), radio control aircraft, RC road vehicles, military modelling, live steam, card modelling, static and RC boats/ships, international RC car racing and just about anything else you can think of. On the railway side, there were 27 layouts from four countries, many of which were modular in design and assembled by modelling clubs from all over Germany. However, the most impressive aspect of the railway hall was the extremely strong trade support from the likes of Roco/Fleischmann, Hornby International, Bachmann/Liliput, Lenz, Maerklin/Trix/LGB and many large retailers from across Germany, the Netherlands and beyond. Here are a few stats to give you an impression of just how big this show is: * 561 exhibitors * Companies/exhibits from 17 countries including; Germany, Belgium, China, Italy, France, UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Czech Republic and Hungary * Sales in 2013 = €20 million * Displays: More than 20,000 individual models, 27 model railway layouts, a 400 square metre sailing lake, RC racing track, indoor flying display arena and outdoor flying displays in the adjacent football stadium. And all this for €14 (€11.50 if you book in advance) or €6 for kids. See www.intermodellbau.de for much more information
  9. I wonder if anyone can help me identify a book I used to own as a child - about 50+ years ago? It was a general book - hardback and A4 or larger size - about railways in the UK and abroad and it had illustrations and text - aimed I would say at children 5-10 approx who were interested in railways. The structure of it was that a brother and sister who had a father who travelled extensively and used to tell them about the different aspects of railways he had used in his travels. I *think* the family name was Wilson, first names of the children may have been Dick and Betty. I can only recall a few details about the various subjects covered - I am fairly sure that there was a section about the Woodhead tunnels/overhead electrification in the UK plus various aspects of operation such as - from memory - marshalling yards and train ferries. It's possible that it was reprinted about 30 years ago under a different title as I recall seeing what looked like the same book around then but I failed to note the title/author etc. A long shot I know, but if anyone can suggest the title I would be very grateful. Thanks. Steve
  10. THE INTERNATIONAL N GAUGE SHOW SATURDAY 8th & SUNDAY 9th SEPTEMBER 2018 WARWICKSHIRE EVENT CENTRE The 2018 International N Gauge Show is rapidly taking shape and continues to be the only exhibition dedicated to N Gauge Modelling at its best, attracting nearly 3,000 enthusiasts every year. Organisers expect over 40 specialist suppliers to be present, showcasing all the latest models and products, making it THE place to visit and stock up on all the models and materials any model rail enthusiast could ever need. There will also be over 30 layouts on display depicting Modern, Steam, American, and Continental layouts, as well as 4 of the leading societies for N Gauge enthusiasts. Some of the layouts attending include; Depot de Camions This layout was inspired by a visit to a model railway shop in Lucerne Switzerland. For sale was a set of wagons and vehicles modelling the “rollende landstrasse” or rolling highway as it is referred to in English. This “rolling highway” moved lorries across Switzerland by train. The layout was then imagined, developed, and finally built and named temporarily Depôt des Camions. The lorry depot is set near or in the third of Switzerland that has French as the main language, which means I can run my French rolling stock on the layout. The imaginary site is near to the outskirts of a large town on a main railway line, so allowing running both main line and suburban stock. The lorry trains are in reality of considerable length, twenty or more wagons behind the coach carrying the lorry drivers. Moorside Valley This is a fictional heritage railway based in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors. The season is winter, and it is around the time of Christmas, so heavy snow fall is present all over the railway. The railway used to be a bustling junction, with connections up the moors and down the coast to Whitby. Most lines are now gone, leaving a single heritage section across the moors, and dual track section down the mainline to the coast. A lot of traction can be seen on the moors, with the vast majority being steam, from small locomotives such as terriers and pannier tanks, up the large pacifics of the LNER and LMS. All locomotives seen on the layout are preserved examples which have in some cases been renamed and renumbered and can be seen running anywhere in real life at various railways. This is a hugely popular specialist railway exhibition and totally focuses on N Gauge. Nowhere else can you see and enjoy the N Gauge scale in such volumes of either layouts or exhibitors making it the only place to see all things N Gauge. For more information on all the exhibitors and to book tickets see www.ngaugeshow.co.uk.

  11. The Lancashire Derbyshire & East Coast Railway was built to fulfill the desire of tapping the rich coalfields in the East Midlands; the plan being to construct an 170 mile long railway from Warrington, to the Lincolnshire coast at Sutton-on-Sea. This ambitious plan would be whittled down to the central section from Chesterfield to Pyewipe Junction near Lincoln and a branch from Langwith Junction to Beighton, thus allowing the company access to Sheffield via the Sheffield District Railway. The remaining sections would never be built and it would always primarily be known for the movement of coal. Volume One will explore the line from Chesterfield to Langwith Junction, then along the Beighton Branch to the Sheffield District Railway. It will also look at Tuxford and Langwith Junction Motive Power Depots, and a brief introduction to the original signalling of the line. The book can be found on the Blurb website at http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/4280589-the-lancashire-derbyshire-east-coast-railway Volume Two will cover the remaining section to Pyewipe Junction along with the Mansfield Railway connection. This end of the route was mostly intact until the 1980's, and some of it is still in use today, doing the job it was built for, the movement of coal, albeit from the one remaining colliery at Thoresby. Do please take a look Thanks
  12. I've added a few photos around Tring and around Lichfield taken in 1976. They can be found at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidwf2009/collections/72157626364037172/ (they can also be accessed at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidwf2009/collections/72157626176329643/ ) A couple of samples: I do know about the spelling mistake in one of the captions. More sets to follow fairly soon, all being well. David
