So onto the internet to look at photos to figure out the dimensions. I can figure ou...

Re: Eileens Emporium Newsletter October 2020

That's my exact problem at the moment Craig, I have gone through my stocks and the postal delay is slowing things up. Though yesterday I dropped into the local model shop and found I could finally buy some 0.5mm brass wire... in a pack of 1meter lengths as the pack was about 6 pieces it should last ...

Re: Eileens Emporium Newsletter October 2020

Oh how I wish it was that quick to Australia at the moment. I have an order still some where between eileens post office and my post box! It's been over a month so far... though it's been good to put my V2's aside and build some thing different... a signal box! :thumb

Re: Martin Finney V2

A quick note to say I have not stopped modelling as I am waiting on some bits and peices from Eileens Emporium to get back onto the V2's. In the mean time, other than not feeling to good, I have started building a NER S1 signal box. Strangely this is the first building I have done in a exceedingly l...

Re: wagon building progress.

That looks great Craig. Years ago MRJ had articles on using Bachmann Wagons to achieving a quicker way into larger wagon fleets. I think the same style of articles could be good with the new Oxford Range. Let alone the Justin Newitts range Rumney models that makes so many fabulous kits which I have ...

Re: A New Home for the Central Cheshire Lines

John, the layout worked very well in the video and has inspired me to reread MRJ 138 and 139. The idea of a operational layout with fiddle yard on view. I will be interested to see what your plans are to develop the scenic work. Matching into what is there already will be a bit of challange but I ca...

Re: Tanks (Septic?) as wagon loads?

Interesting my house in Australia was built in 1968 and the sewer was brought through in about 1973. It's a precast concrete tank.

Re: Glazing - your thoughts please

Daddyman, I have used clear styrene from Ever green (it comes in a pack with tissue between each sheet) with a Testors Glue and window (3515C) this is a flexible glue that holds the styrene. It also drys clear. I have used it a number of times on D&S NER clerestories I built a couple of years ago!
