Very, very nice with great atmosphere.   (Wish you still had it as being not far away in Okehampton I would have liked to have seen it).

Ken.

Are you going to continue with 7mm when you start again in the new house Roy?

By the way do you mind if I use your pictures for the forum weekly jigsaw. Not many people do them but they are something I like doing so I just share them.

Thanks all for kind replies.


Hi Ken - so do I now, we have just started a new Model Railway Club and it could easily been stored in the club room, pity!!.


Hi Robert -  feel free to use the photos as you wish.


Regarding a new layout, not sure at the moment, no space in our 2 Bed Bungalow, so it will have to be something small, say 6ft/8ft long folding in the middle are my thoughts at the moment.


Not sure if it will be narrow gauge, I have a couple of GN15 locos I made and it's a nice size to work with is one thought another is that the members of our new Club mentioned above are all 4mm GWR nuts, do I join them? Not sure. Never built a standard gauge layout before only 009 and 0.16.5.


Time will tell as they say.

I love the boat in your first photo - could you tell me where you got it or did you scratch build it?

I do like that!


Roy, I'm tempted by this idea of big locos on small track, am I wrong in thinking that trains of wagons can negotiate very tight curves? If so it would let me get a lot of interest on two as yet unused 4ftx2ft baseboards I have in the cellar....

It would also allow a totally whimsical free-lance theme such as a St Horsetail Pasty Clay pit....

 

Hhhm.

 

Or do I just add some 00-9 to Bear's End?

 

Do add anymore piccies that you have, please.

 

Doug

Roy,
     Lovely layout,what a shame you had to sell it,but I'm sure you'll come up with something as good in due course.Modelling of that standard transcends scales and gauges,whatever you build WILL be good!
:pathead
Doug,
     I'd love to see you tackle something narrow gauge....think of all the quirky little buildings you could fit into all the space....:cool wink

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

Hi Julian,

Thanks for your comments, scratch built from a photo on the Web, all card and balsa, plus a few Dinky toy tyres.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for comments, 6" radius curves are about the minimum, if and when I get started my max size of baseboard will need to be 8ft x 18", hopefully that should give some interest at this size.

 

Roy.

Hi John.B,

Thanks for your kind comments, must admit I lean towards something Narrow gauge, time will tell.

Thank you for that, Roy. I have done some 'look-sees', the price of an N gauge chassis is terrifying compared with a whole 'Smokey Joe' and it does seem very fiddly. There must be some non chassis bits that can be salvaged from the latter?
Did you work from drawings [home-drawn or otherwise] for you 'Puffen-poofer'?
Best wishes,
Doug

[John B., thank you for that input, I'm clearly bored, I've come up with 'The Walkwell Organic Corn Plaster Works' as an idea, or perhaps 'P. Lunger and Rodwell, Sanitary Engineers and Tripe Dressers'...Yes, time for another pill...]

Hi Doug, Just made a sketch and got on with it, all fiction really, it is now sold to someone in Japan!!

I can handle that, Roy - 'If it looks right, it's right!' It makes purists cringe, I know, but better to have a practice on something inexpensive than spend whisky tokens on something you might not enjoy after all.
