Re: Thinking of a career change

It has to be a hoax. No respectful company would allow a job advert to be posted without checking the spelling first. :lol:

Re: Model railway constructor magazine

Railway Modeller continues to be one of the best, though I have been very impressed with the Hornby magazine as contrary to their title, they are very unbiassed in their reviews. There was one magazine that I used to get that really grinded with me as they seemed to assume that their readers had unl...

Re: Totally converted to n gauge

It's what N gauge is for. Making a lovely scene in a limited space. Yes, each scale and gauge has plus points and minus points, and we all weigh up what suits us the best. I have gone to a larger scale but ideal for shorter trains with sharp curves... But it is what works for you. :) I actually like...

Something Special.

Do you get the feeling that if you built an accurate model of one of these trains, that no one would believe you that a real one exists?

Re: Little Weldon

I have one of those cranes and they are lovely cast metal items. The only thing I would change are the large plastic couplings, as they are overscale in comparrison to the normal metal H.Dublo couplings.

Re: Hello

I prefer 7mm narrow gauge as for me it is the ideal size to work with. I used to be into H0e which was the European version of 009, as a decade or so ago there were no factory made models in 009 scale. Mind you, in 7mm narrow gauge I have to buy kits or scratchbuild, though in this slightly larger s...

Re: The Shankly and Gdynia Railway

Well done! It looks a fun layout. :) Nice to see those little 0-4-0 taking services. They fit nicely on nice little layouts, as do the 4 wheel coaches.

Re: Cleaning heavily tarnished track

If you take it easy around pointwork, use a Hornby track cleaning rubber which is thinner then Pecos version. A far more delicate track cleaning "Rubber" (Actually a foam block rather then a rubber) is from Gaugemaster, though I have personally found it not that effective for heavily tarnished track...
