Re: IP Coach Kits

I have a rake of IP's Beginners freelance coaches, built exactly 'as per' except for the Guards/Luggage van which has window bars, and all have kitchen roll applied to the roof with diluted PVA glue to represent felt. They were a pleasure to assemble with no problems whatsoever and despite a a relat...

That would make a nice table top for an indoor railway for the winter months...
....and with a few extra lengths of Jubilee track, a table top outdoor railway for summer!

Re: New table anyone?

Nice piece of polished timber and a great example of industrial heritage, but a bit limited for get many seats round it without bruising your knees!

New table anyone?

Currently on a holiday break in Porto and wandered into a vintage saleroom where this 'dining table' was on sale at €1800, including the 'train tracks'! Any offers?? I can always pop back.....

At risk of having my bits removed by the LNER faction, I think the 'German-style' smoke deflectors and the BR Green suit her much better than apple green.

Turntables

Just if!.... Anybody is contemplating the addition of a turntable, I've just been idly browsing eBay and came across these potentially 'useful and interesting' items. Enter 'lazy Susan turntable' in the eBay SEARCH box. Lots of different sizes in weatherproof allow with nylon bearings. Hmmmm..... ;)

Re: The Hollycross Railway Company!

Re: The Hollycross Railway Company!

It wasn't long before inquisitive neighbours turned up resulting in an Easter egg! and quite a...
