Very nice layout and a great looking new loco. Where did you get the side frames and journal boxes from, are they scratch built? You got a picture of the other side of the loco?

Davenport Roof Height

Nice work on the critters and layout. So what is the height of the Davenport roof now after trimming it and how is it attached to the chassis?

NICE! Do you have some dimensions or a sketch for them, I can make some from styrene if I know how big they are. I have some kits from Pepper7. It looks similar to one I have in a kit. Still looking for some wheelsets.

Balnakeil Layout Buildings

Super Layout! Great work on the Locos as well. I read the article about your layout in the August 2012 issue of Railway Modeller magazine. You said that you used cork for the blockwork on the buildings and the pavers. Can you tell me what size the blocks are?

The track plan is not shown but there is a plan showing the benchwork and a description about how it was constructed. It does look like in the pictures that there are two parallel tracks and a stub switch with a switch stand beside the building. There are excellent 1/4" scale drawings of the Je...

Looking at the pictures of this diorama it looks like the track layout is just straight track with one right hand switch beside the building. Is this the same track layout that was used on Joe Crea's layout? It doesn't show in the NG&SL Gazette.
