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...

‘Two locos to manage six wagons is definitely one too many. ’ Yes things have moved on a bit since then with five locos and a few more wagons but, like lots of people, now an overpopulation of locos for a relatively small layout. 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.

Re: In A Bit Of Estate

All looking good.

I'm very impressed that you managed to dismantle Ettie without any apparent damage. I'm sure if I was doing that it would be in need of a re-paint at the very least.

Re: Layout names

There are probably enough interesting names without inventions but if you use a real name someone (rivet counter) is bound to know the place and say that it never had a railway or your model is not correct.
