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

The Corris Brakevan build has been a real treat to make. I decided to go with the ducket version and followed the Youtube video, which is essential. Not all of Jerry's kits have the same sequence of construction, so it pays to watch carefully. All of the pieces fit perfectly, no sanding or cutting r...

Re: Leek and Manifold transporter wagon

Many thanks Rik, that is most helpful.
I am aware of the Yatton kit, which looks to be good quality from the image on his site. I have no experience of Yatton kits, so at £60.00 plus the £12.00 postage cost, puts me off taking the chance.

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

I am not aware of a published price list but Jerry can be contacted directly as shown above. That is the way I get information from Jerry.

Leek and Manifold transporter wagon

Can anyone help with technical details of the Leek and Manifold transporter wagons please? Perhaps there are drawings available somewhere, but basic things like length, wheelbase, how many wheels (4 wheels or two bogies) wheel diameter etc? Was there only one design made or different lengths and car...

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

Changing the subject yet again, I received my latest kit today from Jerry Irwin, the Corris Brakevan. I love his kits as they are a pleasure to make following the Youtube videos and always result in first class models with superb running in ball bearing bushes. This kit has various options contained...

Re: The Railway in the Valley of the Mill

Looking wonderful Trevor, but with only two gravel boards left you might have a short intermission during lockdown as deliveries will surely be affected.

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

I'm very tempted by the 'Skylark' too, a nice looking locomotive. I hope you can post your build on the forum, it would be interesting to see how you get on and what we should be aware of. I'm interested to know how many AA batteries you can fit inside?

I was hoping we were going to see a Double Fairlie in LBSCR style "Improved Engine Green"...
If 'Improved Engine Green' has a hint of maroon, then you're in luck!

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

Rod, not silly questions at all.... the filler/primer is from Halfords and builds up small depressions in the printing. The grey is ordinary primer. So, dependent on print quality and whether or not the section will be easily seen I have the two choices. No difference in price so they could all be t...

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

Somewhere I have mentioned the PDF Double Fairlie kit I am building, along with another garden railway modeller, for a mutual friend who bought it, opened the box, closed the box, and called for assistance. Alan is putting the bogies together and adding Deltang RC, meanwhile, I am doing the bodywork...
