Re: Hornby Artemis and dynosis detailed

Very nice and plenty of space for long trains and realistic HST sets......

If you don’t mind me asking, what sound chip have you got fitted in the class 47 ?

Thanks for sharing the video - Cheers Richard

Re: Great service during lockdown

I have bought scenic items (grass tufts, hedges etc) on several occasions from Tajimal Minatures in Cornwall and the service is first class. Ordered 5-off different items on Friday and they shipped free of charge and arrived in Scotland this morning...... if you order 5-off items you get a pack of a...

Re: Trimming back scene (too tall)

I initially purchased an ID Backscene for my layout but I just could not seem to get it to mesh with what I had in mind....... I have since switched entirely to the Gaugemaster range and have been very pleased with them - I have 3-off sets installed and another ready to go after I do some other layo...

Re: Monday evening music..

Hans Zimmer also penned the scores to “Gladiator” and “The Last Samurai” amongst others......pretty famous in Movie soundtrack circles and up there with the likes of James Horner and John Williams....... for what it is worth.

Re: Securing Metcalfe models on baseboard

I am sure I read somewhere that Metcalfe were restarting production this week, but clearly there will be a lead time to replenish stock at the retailers.

Re: Somewhere in Yorkshire

Hi Phil, Absolutely nothing on your layout for you to be at all embarrassed about - I think it looks great and you have plenty scope for mixed operations and further modelling........I think depot is great and well laid out. I am still a relative rookie myself so not especially qualified to give adv...

Re: Trimming back scene (too tall)

I would suggest that trimming at the bottom is preferred as you can easily hide with structures or shrubbery, hedges etc....... that is what I have done on my layout to reasonable effect. Trimming the top works if you have plenty of skyline to work with, but you mention truncated hills and that does...

Re: Montgreenan update

Hi, I have been thinking about what direction I want to take my layout now that it is starting to take better shape and whilst I will for sure retain the BR Blue Scottish based theme ( love my Class 26's and 27's too much), I have over recent months become very interested in the Diesel Hydraulics th...
