Re: Still modelling Gn15 or just looking?

I tend to only model over Christmas, when work slows down. Just logged in for the first time in ages....had a search for my thread on my first GN15 layout...OMG it's three and a half years since I started it and nothing has been done for at least two years. Hopefully get some done over the next thre...

Smallbrook Harlequin. This was last year's Christmas present so thought I really ought to get on with it! Finally I can bend my leg enough to sit at a desk...although my modelling desk has a Christmas tree on it so I'm having to use the comp0uter desk...in the dark. Anyway, I've thrown it together l...

Re: Staining help

When feeling too lazy to go out and acquire staining agents I've used tea in the past. You can vary the depth of colour, to some extent, by varying the brew time.

Longleat

For anyone who might have missed it (as it wasn't the most interesting of programs on paper), last night's edition of Longleat had a bit of coverage of the miniature railway: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06drvrz/all-change-at-longleat-episode-2 ..together with the views of the engine driver...

Re: SmallBrook Harlequin

Is the lever the wrong way around? I only ask because I did mine exactly the same and then thought "hang on, shouldn't the trigger be in the finger side?" :lol:

Very nice built though - much neater than mine!

Re: Houstoun Gate Locomotive Works

Looks really good - that's the old Busted Bricks one isn't it? I've one of the early chassis under my steam rail car thingy and despite mine being the 2wd it does go well. The body, out of the box, is fairly basic but your example shows how it makes a really good basis for upgrading into a very nice...

Every time I click on a topic I get "No route found for "GET /viewtopic.php"" any idea what I can do to fix this? Please reply by PM if you know as I'm betting that if I click on this topic again all I'll get is "No route found for "GET /viewtopic.php""

Just wondering, now that i've let my 7mm soc membership slip and don't get their mag any more and am missing a good read.....which of the current magazines features most Gn15 and most min gauge? With the caveats that ideally it's printed on paper, and that it is certainly in English. As good as this...

I will start by repeating what I said before just so that you don't think I'm arguing strongly against you - like you I'd prefer that the forums were open so that passing browsers could get a look before signing up and so that they'd have a better search engine rating.

Re: Open/closed forums

My biggest issue with a certain closed forum is that I can never remember my log-in so I can't see it at work. TBH, I don't see any advantage to keeping it closed, but I guess if it's their forum then they get to do what they want and if the punters are happy they'll use it, if not they'll vote with...
