Re: A brace of Bagnalls

Steve,

As others have said, thanks for taking the time to document and share your build. I especially enjoyed the SBS on how you creatively cobbled together your many detail parts that added so much to the finished model.

Ian, Puresprings is such a classic Gn15 layout that it is nice to see it resurrected. It looks in such good condition that it should not take that long to refurbish it. So why not take it to this years National Narrow Gauge Convention in Kansas City this September? Short trip for you, and wonderful ...

Critter Power Future?

Maybe in the future we will need small petrol stations to power our Gn15 critters?

Actually, Pender Street Mills has had several small changes since the NMRA Convention: First, due to the high metallic content in the soil around Pender a rare Cast Iron Vine has rapidly sprouted. The maintenance crew is concerned that it may overgrow everything like Kudzu! Secondly, a former employ...

Sir Briand's comment on the changes made to the layout made me curious, so I compared his original photo with the one at the NMRA convention. A lot more activity is going on in 2013. Times are clearly more prosperous. Regarding the office secretary, I thought it was the typewriter that people were l...

As Les describes above, the Model Power Plymouth only drives one axle and does have a slight wobble (which I think is perfect in Gn15). There are two versions out in the market -- the older has the motor mounted ahead of the rear axle and the second has the motor mounted behind the rear axle (as see...

Catweasel -- don't blame you, I thought it would play for everyone. I modified the link to go to the Model Railroader magazine website where it can be viewed for free, but only if you register, and I know everyone doesn't want to do that. I sure don't. Sorry, it seemed like a good idea at the time. ...

Pender Street Mills at NMRA Convention

Pender was exhibited recently at the NMRA Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. While there, Model Railroader magazine did a short video of the module that they included in their online convention coverage. The free video can be found on their website at: http://mrr.trains.com/news-and-reviews/mr-express/...

Daniel,

At the beginning of your NGRM thread you indicated that you planned to sell this layout when completed. Is that still your intention, or (after all this fine work) do you now plan to keep it?

That is very creative. A lot of operational interest in a very small space. I would be very interested if we could get Thomas to describe how the clam bucket works.
