  1. Hi Peter, hope all is well. I haven't been on here for a couple of years. Too many distractions!


    Just been catching up with your layout and it still looks superb. 


    That image of 37428 gave me a flashback to when I was 14 years old stood on Shrewsbury Station! The heady days of the Cambrian Coast Express... brilliant times...





  2. Hi Scott


    Hope all is well with you and yours.


    I've enjoyed reading your thread, the transition from one idea to another, with continual evolution! I can relate to your thought process. I've made a promise to myself that I wouldn't start a layout thread until I had made full commitment to a project but yours is, as a principle, starting to take shape.


    At least you're not flitting between Scotland and England for your prototype (unlike yours truly). I had particularly strong thoughts on developing a rural GNSR theme, late 60's to early/mid 80's. I was planning to include steam-age infrastructure as a first port of call and work forward from there. I now have a bigger set of boards to play with but will still try and keep with the rural, slow way of life feel. I can see why you are tempted to go a bit bigger and denser with all that diesel stock!


    Keep us all posted on progress!





  3. Apologies if this question has already been asked (sorry but I can't be bothered to read through 11 pages of this thread - the photos do it for me!) but will Dapol be fitting sound chips to these models at some point in the future?


    I think I will be ordering a Kernow special :-)

  4. Hi Grimley


    Looking good mate. The fleet is growing well too!


    As for weathering it all - you know that Mr Bean sketch where he decorates his flat with white paint...? if you don't, well, lets just say a tin of paint and a firework is involved! But i'm sure you will make them all look the business if your last modern fleet of Tugs is anything to go by!

  5. Could always have an 'Astle Bridge' There were plans to name one after Jeff Astle, I think it was in the Cradley area, but I think it fell through (the idea, that is, not the bridge!)

    Or perhaps the Odemwingie Flyover could work...!
