Rear view. Some Kirtleys had a simple weather hood to protect the crew. It stretched from the cab roof to the tender front. Anyone got any thoughts on how to replicate this?

Re: Stores Stock: Code 55 flat bottom rail and Morgan Design

If it is flatbottom, could you find out the head and foot width. So I've had a bit of an education about rail today. To answer Russ' question first: the base width is 1.38mm, and the head is 0.65 mm. This rail has originated from a desire to model various light railways, industrial systems and the ...

Trevor, James has just told you the truth. The Committee has a policy and it was adhered to. No Committee member, no trader, no mate or friend can buy something before the show opens. So why do you have a serious concern? If someone writes something on RMWeb it must be true? Really? These other peo...

Re: Starting over again ...

No planning permission needed in my case Trevor. The building (they now call them PremiumAvon or something, but mine is nominal 5m x 3m) comes under the 2008 permitted development rules and is under 2.5m high so can be close to the boundary, and is well less than 50% of the garden area.
