Re: My layout

I agree with TWD - it's amazing the difference a backscene can make. It looks good.

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I've just added crew to this loco - Adams Class 02. I've looked at the Bromsgrove site, and it would appear that it is fairly straightforward to fit both sound and stay-alive. The loco is pre-wired for a sugar cube speaker to fit in the coal bunker, and I had to take the roof off to install the crew...

Re: Securing Metcalfe models on baseboard

Hi aj - Many modellers don't secure their Metcalfe buildings (there are other makes) down - possibly due to accessing parts of the layout. I have a street of Metcalfe buildings and they are currently off the layout as I have been doing some work where it was better to remove them than damage them. T...

Excellent as usual Barry, but how do you keep the dust off? There’s not a speck in sight!

Re: Somewhere in Yorkshire

Hi Phil - I agree with everyone that it's first class. I would also agree with Richard (Hound Dog), that a "backscene" of sorts would give a bit more depth in some areas, but all in good time - remember "layouts are never finished". Barry (BB)

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

A bit "gimmicky", but I have started adding a bit of detail to the layout and saw these at Kyte's Lights, and thought "why not". I have also re-aligned the pavement, so now have a cab rank, which will be outside the station building when it is replaced. The cabs are Oxford Diecast - for some reason ...

Re: That was a long shift......

Glad to hear your ok Steve. I hope when you put him down he went down hard! Barry

PS: Could say a lot more, but would probably be classed as being "not" politically correct! :evil:

Re: Trimming back scene (too tall)

You could always fold it and then pin it to the back board - this would enable you to see which looks best - top off or bottom off? BB

Very quick delivery!

Yesterday at 9.23am I ordered online from Hattons a couple of FX4 Taxis (black cabs). I paid for normal delivery (cheapest), and they arrived at 10.25am this morning. That is a very efficient service. Well done Royal Mail.
