Re: Simplicity Sidings

Right, found a new way to get at what I want. Expensive on my time and effort, but hopefully fellow Gnatterboxers will agree it's worth it. What follows is not every photo by any means and you'll have to perhaps copy and paste Steve's 'words and music' into a separate doc (perhaps print it out so th...

Re: Simplicity Sidings

I think P Bucket's system might have got wise to it but I've managed to grab (no, don't ask me how) some 20 of Steve's Simplicity Sidings photos out of the depths.

Sadly I'm not sure you're going to get an answer Graham as Roger hasn't signed in for a couple of years (you can always check by clicking on a bod's name under their avatar and look at the 'Last active' date in their Profile.

Re: Orchard End

I thought I’d bring this thread back into play since it’s another Simplicity Sidings based little layout with surviving pics (they’re in our own Gn15 storage).

That’s a neat solution.

Re: Eaton Hall & Co cakebox layout

Cardboard mock ups are great fun and so cheap.

A suggestion if I may: add a door space to the right of the loading bay with the steps incorporated into that. The loading bank should then be 'all of a piece' and large enough to have a couple of wagons being serviced at any one time.

Hi Brian, Welcome to the Gnatterbox. Although it’s Gn15 Chris Krupa’s ‘Matthews Corner’ is well worth a look. Alas the great P Bucket hosting disaster has hit the pics in here, but the thread remains, go to http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9458 Althought the write up is in French there...

This one popped up in my Minimal group the other day. Plenty of scope I thought to inspire that Gn15 mob.

Re: Save 10% at my Gn15/G9 store. Limited offer!

The website doesn't run super smoothly from my iPad, but well enough to see that the scale is given as 1/24 with dimensions of the original prototype.

I know it has been a handful of years, but would any member know how to get in direct contact with Gerald? I'd like to ask for dimensions on this wonderful loco so I could build my own.

Hi fellow Gnatterboxers, I have been able to talk to Steve, who regrettably still does not have a computer, and we agreed I suggest that anyone who would like to place an order with him do it manually by using the good old postal service. Even if any of his websites might allow you to order, please ...

Re: Carl Arendt site September update

The carl arendt site was a fantastic site when he was managed by Carl. Now this site is a hollow site with 2 updates per year maximum. When you write to the manager of the site you get no answer. If I may say so I think you are being a bit unfair. Carl, bless him, had retired and was therefore able...
