As there doesn't appear to be a section for none RTR loco's, and basically this is a kit bashing, if only a minor suggestion, then this board seems to be the only one that meets the criteria for a place to mention the following.

In the Oct 'Hornby' mag' page 132, there's an advert for the Bishops Castle 'Carlisle' loco kit being produced by Mercian Models.... talking to Tudor Watkins this evening it appears he supplied most/all the data on the Kitson loco, derived from the Cambrian Rlys. Kitsons drawings.

The kit is due to be released formally at Warley NEC. There may even be one running on 'Penlan' together with some of Tudor's Neath & Brecon and Cambrian stock - I have the Bishops Castle Iron Mink already.

Presumably Dukedog on here will be interested in this, although of course it may be to early for him.

We are not all RTR you know!!!!!!

Incidentally Tudor Watkins has a superb layout of Sennybridge/Devynock in Midland Rly/N&B days, he is not on the internet though. We are both long time (30+ years) of the Welsh Railways Research Circle.

Penlan,
You are quite right about this model not being of my era, however, anything of Cambrian is of interest to me, so I shall watch this thread of progress with interest.

I did consider starting a new layout based on the Tanant Valley line in EM gauge and thought about building a few kits such as the GEM 2-4-0 etc.
However, that idea is now firmly on the back burner as I have now decided to extend my current layout Pen Y Bont.

Cheers for now.

Penlan,
        Is there any chance of seeing some pictures of his layout? I'm just beginning to dip my toes in the Midland Railway(Edwardian Era)having acquired a Johnson 2-4-0,and Kirtley locos are very interesting too.
:hmm
Cheers,John.B.:thumbs
