Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Tank looks good!
If the weather is good I'll hopefully take some pictures of work in progress of our NWNGR/WHR stock.
Andrew; will you do any rainbow carriages? Tempted to do a pink summer carriage...

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: Bowaters Models - 16mm Rolling Stock Kits

I have noticed an issue with Glaslyn Jon. The door windows are wrong:

Hi all,

A new website has been discovered for the FR Mountaineer project.

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...

Look awesome as always.
Does 124 have louvres? Been a while since I've seen it in the flesh.

Re: IP Engineering Jessie rebuild

It appears to be a replacement gearbox but I haven't yet looked at it properly. Picture here: [ IMG_20190717_200202_resize_52~2.jpg Name will likely follow our current diesel convention; Forest of Dean enclosure names. We have two diesels, the Playmobil is named Beechenhurst whilst a small diesel is...

IP Engineering Jessie rebuild

So I've recently acquired an IP Jessie diesel from the interweb, seems complete although it's apparently got glued wheels (45mm) which will need modifying and the general finish is a bit rough but will do for now. Haven't had a chance to test it yet but the wiring seems to be all connected up, will ...

Millie is the best option.
Except direction can't be controlled via R/C which is what OP is looking for. Excellent loco though :D
Billie, Katie or Lady Anne are definitely the best if you have the money to spare!

Re: First Steam Loco

Millie is the best option. We've had several and a few members have started with Millie's and they are still their favourites. You get a basic engine which can be very customisable with various bits from Roundhouse (cab, some/GWR bonnet). Edrigs are also a good option although they are much bigger t...
