Great stuff. For some reason I am imagining bespoke Ferrero Roche-carrying wagons in the style of molten steel tubs.

(F) 18" gauge locos Carnegie and Woolwich

I paid a visit to the Waltham Abbey Royal Gunpowder Mills yesterday to take some pictures of the ex-Woolwich Royal Arsenal 18" gauge loco "Carnegie" for a modelling project. It's a rather substantial looking beast for such a narrow gauge and was built by Hunslet in 1954 based on an ea...

Keep taking the tablets Stephen :lol: . They were huge loco's for the gauge. I saw a lot of Carnegie while she was at Bicton, well her driver in latter years lived right across the street from me :) . I did make a paper mock up in 1:24 a few years ago, the size was on a par with a lot of LGB, bigge...

On my hideously long to-do list is one of the diesels Hunslet built for the 18" Woolwich Arsenal system. I'm thinking of using 10.5mm track in 7mm scale for that.

Re: Expo.ng

Did you see the van though in Gerry's photo.Not the usual VW,but a Renault Estafette. The van was fantastic. Here's a photo of it I took: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2200/1781635100_48f0269974.jpg I was trying out a new camera so snapping away quite happily. Here's one of the Black Dog demo layo...

What is the scale of the models relative to 1:24?


Ah well it's definitely different to mine then! The Palmerston kit is 1:55 scale.

The grey loco is the England, if it is the 5.5mm scale kit it would be Palmerston. I bought an unmade Palmerston kit recently - actually it is the retooled Macolm Savage version of the GEM original but still has a single piece non-running chassis. http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1191/1128528478_b262a...

This is fantastic! Visually it reminds me of Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines sequence of novels.
