Re: a plea to all GnAtters

i dunno ..... you guys aren't really trying too hard. it is expected the figures of any range will need a bit of miliput and lead foil, but the starting point is what could use a bit of variety: http://www.seltd.net/ez-catalog/X344897/17?item_count=0;order_by= http://www.larrygscale.com/Figurines_c...

Re: a plea to all GnAtters

As Geoff has said there is not a lot of choice of good quality 1/24th figures but you can get some variety with a bit of head swapping. There are some horrible Chinese produced figures available, these are some: https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7420/26806396700_951d36eb70_c.jpg Alarming modern passenge...

Re: Thrubwell Hall

I wasn't sure that the wagons would look okay so they are separate pieces on card held in place by magnets. This also means that I can have one, two or none as the mood takes me.

Re: Thrubwell Hall extension

After a long time I have finally got around to extending the Thrubwell Hall Estate railway. The extension is the size as the original board and connected by a small bridge between the two modules. This is the track plan for the new part: https://c3.staticflickr.com/6/5744/30318047642_ce1bdcc4d1_b.jp...

Re: Questions before I splash out on DCC for the TP&K

If you decide to go down the R/C route Micron Radio Control in Malton are still advertising ready built Deltang transmitters.
People manage to put R/C into 009 locos which are tiny compared to Gn15 ones.
