Re: Baguley-a-like

Steve I like what you have done with the loco, it is a pity that you were not able to get a Bachmann Thomas, I do like them for their Bucherability, the Percy too.

Re: New Direction

Just checked out the build Bill, Wow! I am just about inspired to get the box of bits down off the shelf and work on an old loco project.

Re: Veering off the (not so) straight and (very) narrow

Well said Steve this looks like a very interesting project my knowledge of 'lectrics could be written on the back of a large postage st...

Re: Macton works developments

Well it must be apparent to most that I have not been very active regarding the Macton works model, or much else in GN15. I will report that the model has not changed or deteriorated further than the last work, I just have not had much inspiration to work on it. One of these days I am sure that I wi...

An update for those who might find it useful. The winter was a bit hard on the layout(again)at least it did not get damp but the spray adhesive is not holding as well as I had hoped so I needed to carefully peel up the concrete surface in the east end. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y169/my30mm/Ma...
