Re: The new 2019 Hornby Range

An ideal loco. Has the same chassis as the oldrr 0-4-0's but the revamped one so is good. Certainly a nice one, but shop around for a good price. What does puzzle me is most models that use the same chassis have a RRP price of around £35, yet the Smokey Joe version (Which is the most popular version...

Re: Fake long grass

Re: What Got You Into Railway Modelling?

Re: Bachmann 2019

Mind you, does Bachmann need to come out with new models? New development is rather expensive so having a time of rest saves a little money. As long as their products sell and customers are happy with them, then I don't see a problem. When I first came into the hobby with electric trains newly relea...

Re: South Auckland Junction

I like how your control switch panels are coming along. I did something along those lines but different in regards to manual point control. It is still a work in progress so it could be altered in the future depending on the layouts needs etc. I enclose a picture. There are ways to alter the length ...

Re: Showing layout at shows

I find the same a little boring myself as I also want to see things move. I believe the model railway press didn't help in this when one writer wrote in a column that exhibition managers should not accept any layouts that were not professional and in his view professional layouts should be run to a ...
