Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

This will be my last post on this thread. After a great deal of thought I have decided to give up my internet connection. I live in a tiny village and the use of aluminum wire in telephone system causes all sorts of problems. Of late as the cost has gone up the service I receive has got worse, being...

Re: 1/32 scale

Kevin,
I have never sold a layout, because I'm pretty sure I would regret it.
All my old HO layouts have been broken up, the buildings and rolling stock kept but the rest went to the tip.

Very nice layout Kevin.
Lovely scale to work in 1/32, I'm surprised more people don't.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

DCR fan,

You are right of course there should just be holes were the studs came through.
The layout has been exhibited over sixty times and had thousands of hits on this site, but you are the only one to notice this.
Sadly there is no prize for pointing out my mistake.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

I have just been into the local branch of W H Smith and bought the July Issue of Model Rail magazine.

I'm pleased to say that the Two Sisters Farm article that they have printed runs to nine pages.
The pictures Chris Nevard took look really good I am really pleased.

Thanks for the heads up Simon. This is the first I've heard about it. Chris Nevard came up last June and took a load of photographs of the layout in our conservatory. He subsequently sent me a CD of the photographs he took, which I must say rather flattered the layout. I wrote a piece about it earli...

Re: GLS30 Diesel Loco

I think you have done a cracking job on the loco.

I think the paint finish looks realistic, not show room but used and looked after by a caring crew.

I have been kindly given permission to post a few photographs taken by Mick Thornton, a specialist narrow gauge photographer, at an exhibition last November. It was a specialist narrow gauge show that I found most enjoyable with a very friendly relaxed atmosphere. http://s20.postimg.org/mtcrhawul/08...

Re: Gn15 model at Barton le Clay Members Day?

To save you looking at the link these are the photos I took at the show. The layout is built in a large scale 1/22 and is small given the scale. It was built by Des Trollip. Control was remote by a hand held controller. I loved this layout because it is in a larger scale and the detailing was superb...
