Re: Belle Lane - "Little Andi"

HaHa - smashing - I do remember you and your modelling. If I remember rightly there was quite a few of us back in the day that really championed whimsy. I also remember a couple of pitched battles when some folk started cutting up rough about scale fidelity and the like - well we saw them off prett...

1/48 Rail Jeep

Re: Whangaparoa Railway

Wonder if the steam train has gone to Driving Creek. When he was alive Barry alway wanted a steam loco. While climbing the big hill was not an option the short flat firewood siding was considered suitable for steam.

Chinchilla Dust

I have been looking for a ground cover suitable to replicate crushed coral used on WW2 Pacific military airstrips which looked almost white in colour. Chinchilla Dust looked like a great possibility until I read it is actually ground volcanic pumice. NOT something I'm want to use around model railwa...

Re: The Watercress express

I was going to say a New Zealand back yard manufacturer was working on one for many years but never issued the kit. I thought the moulds etc were recently on sold. Was it to Scalelink?

Re: 1/35th Scale 2ft Gauge

Must admit my first go at placing the buildings on the pair of baseboards I've made did not go well as they overwhelmed the available space so I'm having second thoughts on this subject.

Re: Indonesian Railcars

I've been doing some research, the railway is at Lebong Tandai and is now 600mm gauge but was originally 500mm. Once had a vast range of locomotives including some very usual Simplex.

The current rolling stock are known at Molek = Motor Lori Ekspres.

Yeah, finally regained access to Gnatterbox. I've just started on new exhibition layout which will feature an 2ft gauge estate/industrial line.

Thanks for the posting but a steam powered thingy with chain drive - sacrilege. Chains should only be used to complete the drive line for internal combustion motors :P :P :roll:
