Current status as follows: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/Gn15/SteepleandCabless.jpg The second underframe won't actually be used, as the cabless body has been designed to interchange with the Steeple version. Two for the price of one motor. I'll use Steve's underframe to build a cabless Jun...

Duffield Bank

Hi all, In view of my March 8 event SWMBO won't be too happy with long solo trips into the north of E Anglia. Quite happy to provide help at arms length in building items. I note that Gerry is asking for details regarding the Duffield Bank buildings - in view of Carl Arendt's "Tennis Ground Layout" ...

I like the Ant/Bee Loco Jim coming along well 8) , looks as though you're using cork for coal - pay a visit to a Steam Railway and you'll get enough of the real stuff for a lifetime of modelling :lol:

I did actually produce some basic drawings for this loco as it had to be of an overall length suitable for Steve's sideframes which I knew would be compatible (Loco + 2 wagons) with the traverser in my Factory Layout. There is a prototype from which I took the battery box design, much larger though ...

(F) Steeple Cab APS Style

Here's my version of a Steeple Cab Battery Loco: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/Gn15/Steeple9.jpg Why the reference to APS? Well the two battery compartments were fabricated using two APS cassettes to get the curvature required -- a tad easier than bending plasticard. The loco has been built...

Great spread of photos Christoph, I do like No:27, really gives the feel of a rain forest environment. If you eventually manage to model all you hope it will make a great exhibition display.

I plan to plank the floor with real slate beneath each of the the machines -- was going to cover it all in slate then remembered that I'm not supposed to lift heavy weights after my March episode. The layout is still only 48" x 14.5", with 30 " being within the Factory; I've merely ad...

Not quite as far advanced as Steve's Traverser BUT it does work and it is the first layout that I've got to that stage.

Still lots to do before it's finished.

Looks great Steve and I do agree that Terracotta Tiles will create a significant contrast to the stone walls - looks tiny (but that was what it was meant to :!:)

Perhaps I should have added that there are eleven figures within the layout that move, eg: Fisherman pulling in his catch, Grandpa Mole? smoking a pipe and a maggot that pops out of the Apple at rear of photo 3. One carriage contains a couple of mice plus a beautifully crafted Bumblebee (with believ...

(F) Bramble Bottom

This layout won the "Best in Show" Award donated by one of the Basildon MRC Club Members (didn't win the Public vote though). Reason I mention it is that it scales at 10mm to the Foot which in our rather elastic world seems mighty close to Gn15. It runs on 0-16.5 track and features the Wor...
