That is a lovely looking first model! The hatches and buffer beams are particularly nice, looking forward to more of your stuff!

This is looking really fantastic - I hope I can get somewhere near this standard! A set of photos recapping the whole layout is long overdue I think!

Hey Henrik - yeah it's been a while hasn't it! I've been working away though, mostly on a chassis kit DCC conversion that has been taxing me quite a lot. I've asked for railway store vouchers for Christmas though so I'll be picking up a job lot of track and point motors so I can get laying the track...

That is looking lovely MG! I especially like the unevenness of the bricks (both top to bottom and in and out) and the repair work is very nice as well. Nice muted pallet too so it looks realistic. Keep it up!

That is looking fantastic! I especially like the smooth curve of the track past the paving slabs, as well as the sacks and general bits and bobs by the building - lovely! That tree bark is very well done as well.

Hee hee, cheers folks. My girlfriend is more of a silver kind of girl so I'd probably have to forage in the charity shops!

Nickel-silver pickups on locos?

Hi all I've been working on a loco chassis kit and having modified the wheel sets I couldn't use the included phosphor bronze pick-up. The person helping me assemble the kit suggested using an off-cut from the nickel-silver sprue instead, and so we fabricated some nickel-silver pick upsto use. They ...

Good work Bilko - I love that you've given all your drivers names and characters! Mine so are are mostly 'headless body with raised arm 1' etc, but I love the idea of characters and a believable story for your line.

You wouldn't get the P4 chaps doing it! :D

The layout looks great as ever Charlie! A removable backscene would be cool, then you have the option of using it both ways depending on the effect you want to have. Without is probably more informal and friendly, and whilst I love enclosed theatrical staging (and plan to use it myself) it can be a ...

(F) Austrian/European 500mm gauge loco?

Hi folks I'm the lucky recipient of an Egger-bahn chassis that'll be winging it's way to me in the near future, and as it's a bit of an unexpected find I haven't a plan for a loco body atm. Had a bit of a browse for a battery electric loco and I came across the AEG battery locos as used in Austria a...

Hi AJ I think I get this now - the black line is going to be your backscene and you want suggestions for new track to be laid in front? I must not have engaged my brain yet! How about showing the actual industry? With a lot of small layouts there isn't room for the actual industry, just the lines th...

Hi folks - I'm still modeling albeit slowly, and I thought I'd check in with the latest on this project. I abandoned the original body as I didn't like the height of the loco loading deck and the height of the driver, so I thought I'd create an unholy union between a Hawe trolley, Steve's Midge and ...

This looks lovely already! Can I suggest that the building on the right could be some sort of drying/smoking shed? This would go with Michael's idea of unloading fish but it could also go with timber maybe? Timber could be cut off stage and then brought onto the small right hand siding to be dried a...

Sorry if this is a dumb question - but why does the loco in the photo (and on the model of course) have a cow-catcher? Were they expecting to be bashing inmates/residents out of the way?! :shock:

Thanks for that link - had no idea it was a homemade loco! Michael - I don't know how I missed it before but I've just read through your Macton thread for the first time. Jaw dropping stuff, that's the kind of realism I aspire to! Something about the colouring in particular that makes it pop out. So...

Michael, I'm loving those steam locos on the smallest track. Can you tell me who made them? I'm modelling in 1/43 rather than 1/24 but they're still lovely.

I think you might be able to get them in 1/43 but I've no idea who makes them in that scale either!
