Place is dead without Andy P posting with layouts and banter ... well I suppose it gives us all time to draw breath but I suspect he will return with vengeance.:drink_mini:

Hi Andy,

Some smashing weathering work there, buddy! (I really should stop looking at your 7mm stuff!).

Sounds like you've got another dirty diesel lined up, how about a Peak next? I have been so tempted by these, I nearly succumbed when HJ brought them out, I'll have to make do with the smaller one though.

Good to see you and George (& John!) yesterday!

Cheers,

John.

Looks like you've found yourself a blue 40 then Andy. I'll be having a couple more 37's soon!

Young Andrew spoke with me on the tellingbone earlier today. He has broken his flip flop's battery so won't be posting on here for a while. He has off loaded sold the two 4mm scale layouts.  I will let him tell you all the other news when power is restored.

Yes Guys, forced absence due to a Bat Flattery on my Flip Flop, now almost one hundred sods lighter and a new powering thing, I AM BACK.

 

And yes as Clive M, says, Kingsmill (Midland Road) TMD, and Mason Street (Goods) have both flown the nest for pastures anew, and bits of timber have been turned into up side down boxes ready for a fresh start.

 

Details will be in the Layouts section in a few days.

 

Thanks for your patience.

You and I have had the same problem me thinks the power charger for my 'flip flop' packed up the other day so have been posting with iphone ......thus no pictures but can make up for that today ......but a new power pack only cost me £7.95 :lol: 

The really big news for you Mr Peters is that the coffee cup problem has been resolved without a total rebuild of the new fiddle yard :tease:

I bought a £10 Battery for my Canon Camera, SUPPOSED TO BE GENUINE, it lasted about 3 Months and then would only last for a short while on max charge, so I decided to go to the people who supplied the Flip Flop and I have a 12 Month Guarantee on it.

Gone very quiet of late! Hope everything is OK.

Yes, I've been building a couple of OO Layouts, (Kingsmill (Midland Road) TMD, and Mason Street (Goods), which have both now been SOLD. But fear not, tomorrow I'm picking up a Heljan Class 40, and I have a Sound Chip on it's way to me that I will have a look at fitting, or I might be on the phone to David / Jintyman to sort it out.

I'm also currently building another 4mm Layout, New Mills, and I like to swap between the Scales.

SMS does have a run a couple of times a week between other jobs, or just for the odd hour to chill out and relax and plan what is next.

I'm also hoping to get some walling tomorrow so that I can finish off the Ballasting on SMS and then do the Road Bridge area.

 

So yes, quiet of late, but far from lost or forgotten. There will be some pics up tomorrow or Wednesday of the Whistler posing with the rest of the Fleet.

 

Cheers for looking in and giving me a nudge along.

Hi Andy,

Love your layout, locos and weathering and how its developing. Iv opted for end of steam and diesels on my small end to end layout, so as such my blue Cl 40 will never see use of my layout as its far to big and wrong era, you still looking for one?

regards

Julian.

Thanks Julian for the Class 40 I picked up from you today, I've just got home and will get it out of the box later, but it looked good on collection, Cheers again.

The Video of your Layout looked good as well, despite the awful weather in Sheffield today.

I will do some pics later.
