Re: The Story of the Scamp

And, after the horror of seeing a Stockers...

Note, we have all but reached Scamp no. 100 in just five years.

Re: The Story of the Scamp

Guilty as charged. Yours truly is proud to be owner of Scamp number two. More importantly I like to think of myself as the chap who pushed, encouraged and cajoled Colin Edmondson, the designer, to create said beastie after we had both been to visit Goliath, a similarly tiny creation at Peco’s Beer H...

Re: HOn2 a mini...

That other line is fascinating but, unless modified, I think I’d soon lose interest. Your choice has great scenery potential as well as operating fun.

Re: HOn2 a mini...

Hi Chris,

I grabbed a couple of photos of the same line a while ago for my own enjoyment. Great to know it's inspired you too. Your version looks like it should have both a good run and useful operating potential too.

Re: Bilco's Bodgements #3

Hi Bill,

I think the current level of grot/grime etc. is perfectly fine.

A couple of pics from stuff I’ve collected off the internet over the years. Alas, that means I can’t give a credit to the photographers, so if they should look in, my apologies!

Re: Amalgamated Munitions and Particle Beam Weapons

Hi Les,

Our bit of Shropshire is pleasingly far from the madding crowd, so we’re doing quite nicely, thanks.

I hope to be able to report good progress on my 7 1/4" gauge garden line in the not too distant future.

Cheers,

I'm currently hiding from the sun, so it's great to be able to keep up with your work. Hopefully one day in the far, far, future I'll be able to see both layout and you at a show again. :D

Re: A film from my Gn15 layout "Walddestille"

Hi Michael,

Great video, great layout.

I've taken the liberty of moving your thread's location as it's about a Gn15 model rather than a 15" prototype.

Hi Andy, Thanks for sharing/showing all that in one go. It’s scary how much space models can take up in boxes, your case idea works a treat. I’m a serial dabbler in 7/8ths and 1/12 scale mostly, with the consequent much larger volume per item. It also makes it much harder to conceal from SWMBO! Chee...

Re: Stockers' line: the Pell Wall Agricultural Tramway

The future (I hope!) I must update the track plan on the previous page as it lacks a siding that comes off the ‘main line’ in the garden towards the pond just before it goes into the paddock so that a complete train, or just a bit of rolling stock, can be held as other things come through. There’s a...

Re: The Cuddle Shale Oil Company Tramway.

Great to have you back Ian. I’m looking forward to the layout. It’s a shame that neither Andy nor Carl Arendt (I think it fascinated Carl as it’s a simple length of track, yet offers interesting working) are here to enjoy it with the rest of us.

Hi Ian,

I don’t think it ever got built. It was always Andy’s Eldorado, sought but never reached.

As you probably know it was written about here
