Thanks Dave - that's kind of you.

I'll see what I can dig up around the suppliers but if not,  and you're really serious, I will come back to you. :thumbs

By coincidence I was looking at some EFE models on ebay this morning and there are a number of roadsters in red , black , white , green and blue on at the moment .

Peter, I think that the EFE car must have been split from this set



http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/product/20522/99643_Exclusive_First_Editions_Classic_Car_Set

At £17 for the entire set they used to be a top seller but Oxford with their very cheap range have taken over!

Thanks Chris - I assumed they had split the set (on e-bay).  Mine was red and it's the red one that caught my eye on Dave's layout.  When I looked on e-bay, there was almost every colour under the sun except red !!!   I also seem to remember Mike C had a red one on his. :roll::roll:

Maybe it will soon be "swap" time............................

Petermac.

I now recall the set posted by other members is the source of my red roadster which came with a green Vitesse and a blue Austin Healy Sprout.

Don't forget my offer, if you cannot capture a red roadster you can have mine.

Dave

Have you carried out anymore work on the layout recently, or have the plans for the new house taken up all your time ?

Alan,

The layout has been quite literally 'on ice' during the recent cold snap, the room is seperately heated by electricty which is very efficient and doesn't cost the earth to run but I need to plan ahead if I'm going in there. To be honest, the layout is now completed, the last project was the demolition site.




This may have been posted already and I've since added a stolen bike discarded once the 'tea leaf' had reached the station.

I am indeed now in house build mode.




 I promised my wife Julie a 'Winter Holiday' away from the drudgery of housework, nobody can accuse me of being un-romantic. That's 105 sq.m of 110mm Kingspan and that's just for the ground floor slab.




Being such a 'sweety' and after she'd shifted the pile of Kingspan I promised Julie I'd treat her to a 'night on the tiles'. We've demolished the fireplace and dumped the spoil into the void beneath the floor (to keep my first wife company), where Julie is standing will be the new outside wall and the space behind her the new access drive. A bit blurred but once in work mode she just won't stand still.

Moving swiftly back to model railways. We were visited in December by Model Rail when Chris Nevard took some shots of the layout now it is finished and before it is dismantled in a couple of years. I am very pleased to report that Chris's images are simply stunning and show views not previously published, the issue of Model Rail in which they will appear in the next few months will be certainly worth buying for the images, the written word can always be ignorred.

 

Dave

Really going to enjoy this thread ;-)

Building a new railway room, but having to build a new house a well, make sure that you keep the information coming Dave !

All the best digging the footings in that weather.

Just wondering Dave - is the latest Mrs Shakespeare City and Guilds trained ?

Maybe you could post the link to where you first spotted her - I could do with one like that !!!!

Are you going to use much Das clay on the new house ?

Petermac,

She does have some 'Ilex' legal qualifications and thanks for your compliments. I actually spotted her at work and thought she was a battered wife since she always had some bruise or other visible. I now know why. We did a complete re-furb on her bungalow and she's been part of 'Team Shakespeare' ever since, a real grafter and thankfully she scrubbs up well.

I'm hoping I won't need to fill any gaps with DAS but after our recent weather I'll certainly be closing any holes and fixings with expanding foam, I'll let nature do the weathering.

The bad news on the railway room is that we've had to include a full cavity wall so it will be 8" less in length and so will the new railway, with planning as bad as it is these days I dare not extend by a couple of bricks.

Dave

There I was, the other day, down on the Swanage Railway in Dorset when I spotted a table at the station with old magazines on sale for 20p each.  Dropped a pound coin in the box and picked up five random issues of Model Rail from the top of the large pile.  As I wandered off with them I glanced at the covers and was delighted to see that one, from January 2005, had “Yorkshire Phoenix – Tetleys Mills ‘OO’ layout revived” printed on the front! 

I do hope the woodworm is no longer a problem!

Rick

I think you will find Tetley Mills will not be worrying about woodworm to much as in the near future a full size JCB will be rearranging it as Dave is at the moment builing his new home in his garden where the new Tetley mills 2 will be built.

Im sure he will try and reuse a lot of the existing stuff where he can but im sure he is still well away from even looking at starting the new layout

Gentlemen,

 

Strangley enough my wife did find evidence of new wood worm activity but this time in the reclaimed timber of the supporting frame.

All the baseboards including legs, cross frames , the whole lot will be used to keep us warm in the cold nights ahead since I'm adding another wood burning stove, we had one twenty years before they became the new 'must have domestic bling'.

We've demolished and refurbed part of the existing house to give access and the new site is ready for the footings in a couple of weeks, unfortunately Tetleys Mills is covered in builder's dust which will take a while to clean off.

The image above hasn't got the new railway room visible but imagine a decent sized double garage which can actually house real cars and that's it.

Dave
