Re: Montgreenan

Very nice - keep it up. I use card/card kits. It doesn't provide texture but it is an easy medium to work with and if scratchbuilding, cheap.

Re: I have made a start on "Marple tools"

A great start. Can I ask, is the chimney scratchbuilt or part of a kit?

Re: Your latest acquisition

Bought a Hornby Peckett last weekend - had pre-ordered one but it still hadn't arrived after many many months so bought an alternative. Runs superbly straight out of the box, even through insulfrog points.

Re: My other project.

Me and my girlfriend (now my wife) went on holiday to Devon in it along with 6 stick insects - but that's another story, and a rather str...

Re: Returning to Railways

Welcome to the friendly and helpful forum. I went for DCC because it seemed simpler wiring-wise and I hoped to future proof what I was building (although I'm sure the technology will move on again very quickly. To reiterate what has already been said - it's a marvellous hobby but very,very addictive...

Re: Factories

Thanks Forfarian - I remember now when my father worked in a mill - there were shafts between floors and the doors could be used for both incoming and outgoing goods. The difference was at the mill that there was no 'extension' built out - the wall was flat and the crane stuck out on a jib. Thanks f...
