That’s a model?? You’re joking of course!

Seriously- that is superb!

That's extraordinary model-making! Is it a side-project or something that will find a home on a railway layout?

Thank you. I have various National Grid models all in 4mm which can be used on layouts as well as separately displayed. Although very common , they are seldom modelled so building and collecting them can give a representation to their scale. Another example is this 4mm scale scratch built substation which was made back in the 1970’s .

Pop over to his Pylon thread and post that pylon picture you've always wanted to know about but was too afraid to ask!

It could be an L8, an L6 or the common L12!

 

Or just say L Oh.

Can you tell me roughly when this pylon might have been erected please...? I suspect it's pre-war at least. (Image attached.). Please also see my PM to you.

A Class 105 Cravens DMU arrives at Edinburgh Waverley in the early 1980s...

The 105's looked great in the blue/grey...was the model professionally repainted or was there a limited run or retailers special of this much underrated Bachmann model ?

Boo. I'm starting a campaign for the return of that image. They are cobbles in the North East.

 

This is a cobbled street.

I like cobbles. (I also like lamposts)

 

Bring back the cobbles!
