Re: SHADDEHOLME

Solved the headshunt problem - joined it to the mainline and suddenly the harbour is usable again.

My first attempt was with a cut up coke can but found that the foil containers from a Chinese take away was perfect.
Thanks Steve, I'll do some trials :D

Re: Painting and Weathering Service

Ian, can you provide details of both the model and the original so I can check on transfers first. (availability and cost).

Re: SHADDEHOLME

Today saw the branch shuttle line brought in to run alongside a section of the mainline and the start of some changes to the small harbour sidings. The headshunt is very short so this may end up being purely cosmetic. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48898279091_f0081ef9b3.jpg 2019-10-14_05-01-26...

Re: Modelling On A Shoestring.

I posted something similar some time ago - an off cut from a doorstrip/carpet edge. https://live.staticflickr.com/4844/46180559624_7382d58051.jpg 20190128_133957 by Steve Mumford , on Flickr And you should end up with something like this. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47615791111_9a78e42d69.jp...

Re: LOW GHYLL

Finding theses parts in the parts box, I assumed that I hadn’t fitted snubbers to Low Ghyll...........wrong! There they are sitting at the ends of the bus at each end of the layout, either side of the lift out section. I’ve not cleaned the track but I have had a good scrub of the wheels and pickups ...

Your layout maybe circular but your bus should not be Steve. :)
True, the bus doesn’t link across the lift out section. :D
Must look tomorrow to see if I did fit them in the first place - probably not.
