Thrubwell Hall

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

I regret to say I have only just come across this post.
Both of the models I think are excellent both the locomotives, stock and the scenery they are presented in.
I especially like the idea of photos of the standard gauge wagon, very inspirational.
Well done all round. :D

Kind regards Peter M

I've been replacing the warped carboard backscenes at Thrubwell Hall with plywood versions that are a bit taller. I've also raised the height of the workshop so Sir Peregrine doesn't bang his head on the doorway any more.

Hi Don,

Coo, an outing; somewhat rare in these pesky virus ridden times. Looks great, thanks.

Great to see a video of you wonderful layout. Do you have an overhead shot of the track plan?

Silly me - Reread the postings and found the track plans sorry.
