Cheers for your comments on model clubs etc chaps.

I visit Trinders about once a month to get bits and bobs, it's a nice place and not too far away from my front door either.

I think the club you are referring too Simon was attached to what is now Kraft foods? The local MRC is now located in a little nearby industrial estate from what I have seen recently.

Hi Simon,

Great job on the layout. It has a wonderful charm.
Little old lines to somewhere.

Lovely pictures in both scales, Simon.

Just out of devilment :twisted: what does it look like with the stone shed and O9 loco, and the brick shed and GNine loco? :roll:

Nice work Simon.

I visited the Oxford 009 Group open day. If that was anything to go by, it would be worth making contact with the group. I will PM you the details.

Postby rjt » Mon Aug 13, 2012 1:23 am

Is there a 'HELP' file somewhere that will tell me how to attach/upload files and photos etc. Got to be simple, but it's getting late and I'm tired. Olympic closing ceremony and the BBC news has finished me off for today :roll:

8) I have been mostly playing this weekend.

Only a couple of small issues, Mr Andrews was very kind to put up with my multitude of phone calls of panic when a point motor failed, thankfully the issue was sorted very quickly, and needs minor tweaking to be permanently fixed.

The other issue was that the loco above doesn't quite go all the way down the siding...only a bit of filing needed on the axles. Once I finally have everything weighted I don't see any other issues just yet.

Image
Excuse the bad shot, it's the best I could do with the minute of battery I had left in the camera...but I realised I've been doing the same old angles on here! :)

Glad to here everything is okay. The phone call were not a problem. Happy to help. Try removing the flanges on the centre axle of the Bachmann brick.

Have to admit I really like this layout ALOT, in both scale forms!

Very inspiring, perhaps to inspiring... :?

Cheers Nathan,

Don't do what I do and get distracted! It's taken me nine months to make a building, lay down some static grass and paint some stock :roll:

All good fun though and once this is done the 'next project' can begin 8)

Hi,

Been reading through the thread; very, very nice modeling go on here. Quite life-like I must say. What brand of track are you using? Might have to have a go at this scale someday. Oh my, I think that I'm catching the "Gnatterbox Bug". Also been reading your blog; very nice read. Cheers.

Hi Larry,

The track is standard PECO 009 Crazy track, I think it's H0n30 in the states...you can get away with n gauge though if you like to bury sleepers 8)

The gNatterbox bug is a dangerous thing...I came here looking at Gn15 and ended up playing with Gnine...:roll:

I have sadly not been able to find a permanent fix for the point motor yet, however, the layout operates very well as a fork 8)

I was taking some shots the other day and picked out this as my favourite.

Thank you both chaps, I love taking photos of the little module and sharing them with other Gnutters 8)

The layout now works completely (touch wood) I attacked the point on Saturday night and somehow managed to get it working consitantly - attention now turns to playing and having a good time :twisted:

Last night finally saw the layout coming out of it's box for the first time in a while. I now have a desk to work at in the spare room, so I can finally leave some mess if I need to!

Quite a bit of scenic work has tried to liberate itself from the board, so the panic is on to have the layout and stock ready for Pewsey exhibition in August :/

I'm thinking of re-arranging the trees a little and giving the layout a little more room to breathe - as an O9 layout it worked well, but once you get a few G scale figures and bits on the board space is sapped pretty quickly...the bulk of the work begins tonight, with a hope to come out with a refreshed little layout to exhibit in a couple of months 8)

In an attempt to end on a positive note, I attach a pic of the Gnine-a-mite I'm currently working on - much to do on this also :twisted:
