Re: Instructions for M Mitchell/David Geen 45/55xx kit

John, I have a kit for a Mitchell Design 4575/55XX class, bought on ebay and unfortunately not quite complete.

Justin Newett (Rumney Models) makes a tarpaulin bar bracket for LMS/BR corrugated end wagons (B.92), so at Scaleforum last year I asked him if he had any plans to produce a GWR version. He s...

Re: Chagford exhibition layout

Martin, This layout may have been built by my friend Brian Lewis, owner of Timbertracks and a few years ago C&L. Brian is of course a member of the society, but does not have a logon to the S4 forum, so I'm responding on his behalf. Brian's layout was 20 feet long and (unusually) had a fiddle ya...
