Re: Thrubwell Hall

I regret to say I have only just come across this post.
Both of the models I think are excellent both the locomotives, stock and the scenery they are presented in.
I especially like the idea of photos of the standard gauge wagon, very inspirational.
Well done all round. :D

Kind regards Peter M

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

As there has been little interest in buying the layout I have decided to keep it. :D It takes up little room in the garage so keeping it will not be a problem. I have a large british outline standard gauge layout 14foot x 2foot in a spare bedroom so shunting on Two Sister's will make a pleasnt chang...

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

The layout was named after our two cats who we had had since they were six weeks old. Sadly the last of the two sisters passed away last year aged 16 years and somehow it doesn’t feel right exhibiting the layout anymore. So I have decided to sell the layout and all the rolling stock and the differen...

Re: Two major crimes in Gn15 and Gnine

Welcome Chris, Although I don't model Gn15 or Gnine I have a small layout in 1/32 scale Two Sister's Farm which I hope has the same sort of flavour.
What I am trying to say it's a large scale model in a small space, built purely for fun.

Re: BBC The Repair Shop and Emmet

I have been a regular viewer of the repair shop since the series started and always enjoy it. It makes a pleasant change to see proper craftsmen doing and enjoying their work. As opposed to the overpaid untalented people we usually see. I was surprised that they originally thought the Emmet locomoti...

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

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

I bought a few second hand magazines the other week from a charity shop and among them was a copy of the 2018 December issue of Railway Modeller. It had an article about an attractive 00 scale small exhibition layout called “Sixpenny Handley” which featured a selection of modular scenes that could b...

An intersting site

A friend recommended this site and I have found both interesting and useful. It covers all railway routes both standard and narrow gauge in the UK and Ireland. It also covers canals as well on separate pages. Well worth a look. As a sort of bonus it covers railroads on the west coast of the USA too....

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

To be quite honest Chris I think I have covered every aspect of the model as it stands. I have a thing called polymyalgia which affects my hands so making any new models in the near future is unlikely. I still manage to operate it and attend a few shows every year though. Thank you for your interest...

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

I am very sorry but it seems I was a bit optimistic when I thought I could loose 240 odd images from my threads featuring American railroads and I was unable to do so. This means I will have to loose about fifty images from the Two Sisters thread. As the actual original building of the model used ve...

I will not be posting any more photographs on this thread in future, any updates will be text only, hopefully the existing photos will remain. The reason being Flikr have now limited one to 1000 free pictures, any more cost about £30 per year. This is the fourth time I have had problems with a suppl...
