Re: Macton II

Thanks for the encouragement Bill, doc, and Peter. Being able to play with the parts of the old Macton, was fun this evening, while taking a break from renovating the living room in the new home. After doing a drawing of the new layout early this morning as a guide I placed all of the good pieces on...

Re: Back on the Drawing Board

good morning Bill, catching up I like the way you finished the left side, some familiar looking features there. It is a pity that photobucket went the way they did, it ruined a lot of threads on various forums.

Macton II

This evening I looked hard at the old original section of Macton, an decided to retire the base structure. This provided the opportunity to make it just a bit wider from 12 inches to 16 inches keeping the original length of 48 inches. IMG_0491x1024.jpg I used a 1/4 inch ply for the top and 3/4 inch ...

Re: Longstone 2

Hello Graham, I just read through your entire build. I like a lot of the small details and Like Chris was impressed with the backdrop scenes in the road next to the store. I also like the colour of your locos and coaches. I will be doing some rework myself on an old layout and as some mentioned in o...

Well after a great job by Tom after some issues with not being able to log in to my account I am now reinstated. Judy and I spent 9 years plus in the country by the lake, as nice as it was the long distance driving for anything food supplies you name it, we finally decided to move back to Edmonton. ...

Steve I like what you have done with the loco, it is a pity that you were not able to get a Bachmann Thomas, I do like them for their Bucherability, the Percy too.

Re: New Direction

Just checked out the build Bill, Wow! I am just about inspired to get the box of bits down off the shelf and work on an old loco project.

Nice work on the Loco Sir.

Re: Veering off the (not so) straight and (very) narrow

I say the hobby is for me, not the other way around.. We have no obligation to finish a model, or count rivets either for that matter. That is my excuse anyway ...

Re: Macton works developments

Well it must be apparent to most that I have not been very active regarding the Macton works model, or much else in GN15. I will report that the model has not changed or deteriorated further than the last work, I just have not had much inspiration to work on it. One of these days I am sure that I wi...

An update for those who might find it useful. The winter was a bit hard on the layout(again)at least it did not get damp but the spray adhesive is not holding as well as I had hoped so I needed to carefully peel up the concrete surface in the east end. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y169/my30mm/Ma...
