Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Fully agree with all the previous comments - very realistic and every time I look I see something additional - only just noticed the window cleaner the other day ....... this is definitely one of the layouts that sets the standard for me

Re: Gaugemaster/Metcalfe Castle

So delighted to see Metcalfe release this castle as I had in mind a castle / city gate type of effect at the end of my roadbridge before the road goes off the layout........ this will provide the ideal scenery cover, although I expect much adaption will be necessary........ one for 2021 I think, but...

Re: Peco Setrack curved points

I am in the process of what started out as a realignment ( but is now turning into a complete rebuild) of the western approach to my station which comprised of 3 curved points........ most of my stock would run thru these ok, but longer (co-co) diesels had issues, and especially the Class 40 and 45’...

Re: My new layout

Nice video Brian.........your new layout has fairly come along quickly and the running action of the train looked super smooth, which is something I am currently trying to improve on my layout.

Thanks for sharing - cheers Richard.

Re: Montgreenan

Having felt a bit like Dr Beeching by ripping up track, the rework of the west end approach to Montgreenan station is well underway and so there is absolutely no going back now, as the pictures show.........it is testimony to my ballasting that this has been a pig of a job to do and there have been ...

Re: Your latest acquisition

Hi, As I build up stock for the Diesel Hydraulic era on my Montgreenan layout ( to be alternated with the BR Blue era), I have treated myself to a few wagons that I have been tracking for a while and for which I believe I have picked up some nice little bargains...... a) 8-off Bachmann China Clay wa...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Barry, As both banker and unpaid groom to my daughters two horses I can confirm that the trough will be thoroughly “manky” and the ground around it perpetually muddy......The area around any gate or feeding area will also be well trodden and muddy. I sometime lie awake at night dreaming about the hu...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Barry,

Lovely photos that look so prototypical and a fine collection of steam locos....... almost made me consider if I should introduce steam to Montgreenan, but only almost - LOL

Cheers - Richard
