Yeah, but its good enough to feature it again.
Not everyone will have seen the 2009 posting.
And even if you did, it was so good you will probably want to view it again :P

Great work Chris.
I do like that driver. The flying goggles really look the part!

Hi Stefan,

I'm not sure how this thread slipped through without me noticing it.
Your railcars are stunning.
You have got an exceptional level of detail - and its all cardboard!

I do like the shape of that new one. especially the way the body curves in at the bottom.
Great work! 8)

Sorry for not making my comment clear. I was only referring to the layouts that have been voted the most popular over the 26+ years that the show in Christchurch has been running. I certainly did not mean compared to other layouts in this forum or any other show in the UK or the world. I sure some p...

Thanks Gerry. 5 people even voted it the best layout in the show (and I didn't even pay them! :lol: :lol: ). The public favourite was the Stamping Ground, which has now won 4 times in a row and will probably take a rest next year. Its now the most popular layout in the history of the Christchurch sh...

Outsourcing is alive and well at the North Pole. Faced with boiler repairs, Santa decided to outsource the running of the railway to the chief Elf, who set up his own company and built this new speeder to carry the parcels: http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb41/Gn15Glen/ElfCouriers1_zps121aa351.jp...

Wallace and Gromit's Garden Railway

I've got a G9 layout in the planning for the next train show (mid October). But first I'm going to need some G9 stock. So here is my first (and somewhat lazy) attempt at a G9 build. First a Kato chassis. This is about the same length as the 4 wheel chassis, except I got it because I thought it would...

Looks Ok to me Bill. Its easy to over-scrutinise an item when you view it in isolation and it doesn't look quite how you had imagined. But once it goes on the layout and there are other things around it, it becomes just one small part of a much bigger scene and any imperfections don't get noticed. G...

Is the factory supposed to be 1930's "art deco"?
Some of those curves and speed lines are the same as art deco shapes.
And I'm sure you have a plan for that balcony at the right hand side :wink: .

Hi Bill,

Great to see your photos (and some or your layout on Mick's website).
What are you using for the loads in your wagons that get tipped out?

Thanks,

Nn3 - N scale on Z gauge track (6.5mm). And you could go one better by putting N scale on T gauge track (3mm). But from what I've seen of anything smaller than N gauge = Big $$$. :shock: And since your signature says you are only 13 and don't have much money, you don't want to don't want to pay big ...
