Re: Self isolation virtual exhibition.

I think a new online exhibition might be a good way of seeing how many members are still active and to see things that have appeared and progressed since the official virtual exhibition was last updated.

Re: Dimensions for a loco and wagon?

Hi Paul, Welcome aboard. There is an excellent walk-through for wagon building here: http://gn15.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10024&p=117174#p117174 obviously you can adjust the size as much as you need. The standard Heywood "Top"wagons were 6ft long and 3ft wide, most of my wago...

Re: Bergerac's small layout

Chris, If you have a look through the Virtual Exhibition section on here ( near the top of the opening page) you will probably get a lot of ideas. I think some of the boards are about the same size as you are using. I don't know how good you are with feet and inches measurements but as a guide 3 fee...

New "stock" at Thrubwell Hall

The addition of a standard gauge "coach" has provided a means for his lordship's visitors to get to the estate, however his lordship is not very happy that the LC&DR have only provided a third class carriage for the final part of the journey to the estate sidings. https://live.staticfl...

With regard to the passengers, they are shown in a thread about the co...

Re: rivet counters unite!

From the Blog (under Burning Wrecks)::
Poly-Fil® is used for the smoke. Since the Poly-Fil is pretty light and flimsy I've bent a wire to use as an armature. It will be inserted into a small hole,

It looks like pillow stuffing to me.
