I don't know why Steve but that photo has an air of Dr Who about it maybe it's a Railway Time Travel machine. Get in it and end up on some rail system 100 years back :!: :?: :wink:

Cute Little Loco

Nice link Gerry.. as well as liking the loco, I love the setting - you can almost see the clouds of midges in the weedbanks..the buzz of a lazy bee crossing the line, the rare heat of a perfect English summer's day in the country. I'll go along with that Martin BUT you'll note I left the Hay Fever ...

Thakeham Tiles Petrol Loco

Having revisited the James Smith's Fotopic site I think this Loco deserves a mention:http://narrowgaugeindustrial.fotopic.net/p10955561.html Looks a suitable Gn15 candidate and what a choice of Colour :lol: There's even a handle on the side for those who favour Gn15 alondside G in the garden - must ...

Hood Line

I was inspired by the pictures of the Jung loco on one of the other threads so a wholesale change to the hood was made.

I think the Stylist you employed to revamp the Hood has done a grand job 8)
totally transformed the beast. I'll call him up when I've got aesthetic problems.

(F) Watercress Loco

Over past few weeks I've been building a series of Locos (3 so far ) that fit onto a single motorised underframe. This post shows the Watercress locos which are part built - currently in limbo due to a lack of rivets :oops: The next photo shows the wreck I've built prior to being towed into the Gnif...

Carlo Spirito's "Larry"

Well here's my modification of Larry together with unpainted original. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/Gn15/CS1.jpg The figure required some cleaning up to remove both flash and mould lines - not difficult BUT rear of figure had a number of blow holes and detail missing from braces.

Source of Figures

Certainly agree with Colin that the Italeri seated figure makes a good Driver. Unfortunately mine's firmly adhered to the seat in my Sidelines conversion of the Bachmann Gas Mechanical. The "Punk" driver if you recall Steve. 8) I also think that Carlo Spirito's youth figure (suggested as a fisherman...

Wagon Turntable

Hi Alastair,
Somewhere on a Japanese website is the very wagon with a worker pushing, his feet being just clear of the sleepers.

I may have the site bookmarked - I'll trawl through the many I have tomorrow.

Hi Dave and apologies to Alastair for not identifying his layout . I agree that non-square buildings will be a++++. 8) Can now see reason for run rounds :oops: which I'd have realised if I'd been at the meeting.

Other Designs

Hi all, I prefer Dave's original design rather than the 2nd effort. Question 1 : What is purpose of passing loop at front of layout in view of availability of hidden passing loop? Question 2: Instead of passing loop why not incorporate a siding with Halt for the visitors to disembark to purchase the...

Corrugated "Tins"

Derek mentioned using bean tins which generally have a small diameter - Lidl sell large tins of Half Peaches (very nice too) and when carved up they provide Two lengths of corrugated 24' long x 2'4" wide. The corrugation pitch is 4". My first cut lengths are weathering outside. GerryB from Essex or ...

Corrugated Measurement

Hi John, I thought someone would have come up with the answer by now :roll: Here's the details from someone who had dealings with the material; the standard measurement for corrugated used in small applications is 3" pitch, however a 4" version also exists but I gather is uncommon. Industrial use be...

There are already the braces you mentioned in place together with one that runs almost full length of layout. Doesn't run right across because the bit of wood I h...
