Re: The Cordale Hall Railway

Paul, I’d be wary of inviting female guests from Berger Hall. Kaffie, Jessica and Ambrosia would be fine, but I worry that the likes of Lady Frideswide and Mlle Etoile Michelin would prevent any eventual reconciliation with the Duchess.

Re: The Cordale Hall Railway

I wouldn’t worry about the boxes not fitting snugly in the wagon. When I see photos of prototype railways, I’m often impressed by how awkward and Ill-fitting things seem to be. I assume that boxes were rarely designed with the size of the wagon in mind.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

Congratulations on inspiring someone to make (and finish) a layout. I liked seeing your last photo - a punter’s eye view of the whole layout rather than the more normal camera’s eye view of a bit of the layout. I’m sorry to hear about your polymyalgia. As I get older I encounter all kinds of strange...

Re: Stackpole

Good to see some motive power. What is the original of the photo in the backscene? Did the printer hand colour it to turn it from black and white to colour?

Re: Scalescenes Industrial Boxfile Layout

Yes, I’ve seen that kit on another forum, and it seems a great start for a layout. You can sometimes convert an 00 scale model to G by increasing the size of the doors and windows. In this case the low building in the middle at the bottom might be too low; also the conveyor? on the right above the t...

Re: Article on choosing plywood

My layouts have been small, so I’ve used a block of that cheap polystyrene foam and run something around the edges to protect it (1.6 mm mounting card). Bigger layouts need more substantial engineering to cope with detachable sections, legs, changes in climate. All-wood construction tends to be heav...

Article on choosing plywood

Here’s a link to a good article on choosing plywood:

https://www.popularwoodworking.com/tech ... t_plywood/

Plywood quality seems to be going down as manufacturers try to reduce prices. The race to the bottom. No wonder modellers make foam baseboards.

Re: Peter’s 1:25, 24 mm gauge rolling stock

Chris, the rail is Frank’s finest 00, which is a bit light. My backstories often play out at the level of the model, not the prototype, for example this excerpt from the Huia Morning Star, 2019: “... rail used on the line was second hand, obtained at a knock-down price from a local abandoned line of...

Wagon number 5: E589BE04-53D2-4836-96EC-1831ADB1456C.jpeg The basic wagon core is mostly cedar, a light wood, to keep the center of gravity down. It was time consuming to get all the angles right, and I’ll probably make future cores from bits of wood glued together. The planks I cut from old wood Ve...

A couple of years ago (though it seems like only yesterday), I made a 1:25 scale goods van on 24 mm track, for 2 ft gauge: 61393B90-2960-4BF0-AF94-B1EB105B9E43.jpeg See here: http://gn15.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=10699 This seemed a bit big to me, so I made three more goods vans in differe...
