Re: Socially Distanced Challenge – CR Class 488 Build

Hi Lindsay.
Excellent work Sir. I love doing the detail part and try to get as much in as I can. I'm not a rivet counter, but I do love the detail.

Re: G.N.R. 32ft Luggage Brake

Google Steam and thing's, they have a transfer section. They do GNR coach transfers of two types, Pre 1906 and Post 1906 and in lots of different gauges.
They are based in Australia.

Hope this helps.

Re: Edington Junction

I like it. it reminds me of an area between Swindon and Bristol on the M4. The hue for me is just right if the sky was a little darker. But hey, I'd have it on my layout.

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Personally I'd much rather buy door handles that look like door handles than a blob of plastic that looks like a blob of plastic. I use the turned brass type which put in a chuck and filed down looks more realistic,and you only need to drill a hole and glue/solder it in. after all, we are trying to ...

Hi Bill.

I mean the molded/ printed ones. They are a nuisance to chiv off without taking a chunk of beading off with it.

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Hi knuckles.

it looks good but would it be better without the door handles ? Then people could put there own choice on and it would save trying to carving them off neatly..

Re: Dartmouth progress

Hi Paul.

I saw this at scaleforum and was most impressed with the track work. Did you manage to run a train in the end ?
The clerestory coach was beautiful, a superb standard of modelling. Looking forward to seeing it all completed.

Re: The LNWR brown train

They look really good. Who done them for you ? and when you say reasonable, how much per item ?
I have two Brown trains to build so these would be a great time saver.
