Re: Internet "forums" are a thing of the past

Already our younger generation are lethargic and obese due to the lack of exercise and any physical activity, At a slight tangent and drifting somewhat Off topic, I'v just seen an item that apparently "Millenials" are taking to board games in a big way. So much so that there are actually now Board ...

UNESCO bid for North Wales slate industry

Just seen in the Talyllyn magazine that the UNESCO bid for North Wales slate is being submitted in January. What do you all think of the chances of the bid being accepted? If so, could potentially it release a fair amount of money to help maintain the area? I do hope it goes through; I'd be surprise...

Brine tank looks good! I made a 3D printed brine tank a while back, need to dig it out and finish it!
The prototype is currently under restoration on the Ffestiniog.

Re: Avonside Heisler loco info?

Hi Tom, Hope your back is getting better. I sympathise as my mother suffered back problems on and off for many years. At times it was very debilitating. I'm glad you have ordered the Peter Angus book. It's full of information both full size and 16mm model form and the section on Avonside Heislers i...

Re: Internet "forums" are a thing of the past

I would say that forums are gradually improving as more younger people are leaving social media. I currently have no social media (along with my mates) but I do regularly use forums as a reliable source of information. Despite the negative association of forum sites such as 4chan and Reddit, a lot o...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

As requested. The two slate waggons are a Lineside Hut followed by a Binnie. These are representing the NWNGR first generation slate waggons (apparently "almost identical to the FR type"). The bolster set are modified from a Lineside Hut kit to represent the NWNGR bolster waggons. All the Lineside H...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I do like the red you use Andrew. I saw Bachmann painted one of their 009 WD wagons in "WHR red". Is there any references on the WHR liveries? I would like to use red for the Swift Sixteen D wagon but ideally would like a reference to this livery actually existing.

Re: Full size railway reference and picture thread

Currently in Florida at the moment. We managed to visit Disney and, despite the disturbing sites of the parks and the rather upsetting animal safari we managed to ride the Wildlife Express Train. For those that don't know, this is an African themed train with unusual carriages. We managed to get som...

Full size railway reference and picture thread

Hi all, After a quick discussion on the suggestion board, I'm going to be starting a new thread for use by forum members to post their pictures and sources of information regarding full size railways. This will enable other members to use them for "inspiration" with their own modelling. Please try a...
