The back where there were chain held curves to join the levels of the scenic section was just as interesting - thought I had photo!
No doubt Mick's website will feature that.

Re: Wallace & Gromit - A Riveting Day Out.

Thanks to all for your comments; I must admit that I would have been somewhat disappointed if it hadn't have won. The award last time 2013 for the Rocking Loco on Gneiss Cider paved the way for this entry. Here's the cast celebrating. :roll: :lol: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/Gn15/Shepton2...

Shepton Show was an outstanding success. Numbers at show looked higher than my previous visits - weather was good, no snow, no floods! Mick Thorton wasn't there although photos were still taken by a colleague, possible that his website update might be later than usual. I have a range of photos (incl...

Unfortunately, there's only one space left that day, so the Angel must decide which of them gets in. The Angel asks Dolly if there's some particular reason why she shou...

Re: C Rapper & Sons, Sanitary Ware Manufacturers

I note that you plan to angle the lid. Before permanently fixing track make sure that you don't get derailments on the curves with whatever you intend to run. Just checking a Loco isn't adequate. Many moons back a layout didn't get completed for that reason.

I found this nice and cute pizza layout in the VE and I really like it ! Two newbie questions: -What are the dimensions of the layout (or I missed something...)? -What kind of Roco H0 track is it ?

Thanks Les & David. I'm afraid what skill there was has faded as a result of the AMD in one eye. Doubt that I can paint like that any more. My best achievement, now owned by youngest daughter, was to win £100 for painting of a Door. Won Best in Show at an annual Lions event featuring all forms o...

My take on a least 3 of them is that they are UK made from a source no longer available.
One in my hand at the moment, different body but same head as final figure.
