Mmmmmmm - O Gauge - so much detail can be built into this scale David.  Looking at your plank, it's so tempting but I still have all my OO gauge stuff boxed up and waiting for a "shed".  Suggesting a "temporary" plank in "O" Gauge would probably get me hung, drawn and quartered .....................

You asked Nigel about his name so I'll ask about yours - has "Harbottle" anything to do with the village of the same name in Northumberland ?

Thanks Petermac - the username is actually from the character Jeremiah Harbottle who was often a feature of Will Hay films. He’s the central figure in my avatar. That picture was taken at Cliddesden station in 1937 during the filming of ‘Oh Mr Porter’. My layout is based on the line as it would have been in 1936, just before closure, at an imaginary station just along from Cliddesden, hence the username! It was watching the movie that made me curious about the real railway that had been used for filming.

Thanks - very kind! Lots of little jobs still to do but it’s shaping up. Such a brilliant move - it never fails to amuse!

Hi David.  Excellent , long before I came back to Model Railways in 2015, I did contemplate an O gauge plank, and I contacted the O gauge society, only to be told “ that it couldn’t be done “. Both yourself and Terry have proved that  particular O gauge member to be wrong.  Anyway now I have committed myself to double O. Best wishes. Kevin

Thanks Kevin. Don’t think O can get much smaller - at least for passenger operation. Am hoping to get the finishing touches done on it soon and run some more trains !

Rolling stock update - Terrier has been sold and one of these is on order instead.....the Southern did own one so I can justify it :cool:. Delivery in early 2019 - will possibly get me motivated to build a coach for it!
