Re: Two Dogs Railway

Sorry to hear the way things have turned out for you Dwayne, both with regards to your lingering limp, and the personal circumstances. But it's good that you are being positive about it. Good luck with the house modification, and best wishes for your 'bachelorhood'. At least you will have plenty of ...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

I like the second photo too - all capture that bucolic narrow gauge mood, imho.

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

Re: Ugly Duckling Diesel

Just out of interest - if the diesel engine is under the larger bonnet - what would be under the smaller one, do you think? If she was a DM, would it have been the gearbox?

Re: Matt varnish has not set

I bought some Humbrol spray varnish, and then noticed when it arrived that it is not suitable for use over acrylic paint. Could it be a similar issue?

Re: Recomendations for a 'Recovery Loco'.

I purchased a Mamod Boulton last year. It's very capable and will recover stranded locos. I got it to 'tart up'. It now has a sound card and deltang Rx, and some more detailing, with more still to do, but is very much being done a little at a time. It is a great little loco, but If you do get one, i...

Re: Lineside Hut Livestock Waggons

Lovely coaches there Peter, and of course beautifully built and finished. They make splendid items of rolling stock. I suspect that, as you say, the more 'solid' nature of passenger stock makes for a more sturdy model. Don, looking at the pictures I took at Welshpool, I think 2mm may be overscale! T...
