Nice one Murph! The Dapol stuff is the best on the market appearance-wise,and the GWR 0-4-2T in particular is a little cutie!!
  So your modelling GWR and LMS like myself.....what's your current loco roster like??Are you just having smaller brach-line type motive power,or will be seeing Kings,Castles,Duchesses and Jubilees?
:hmm

Hey Kettlewatcher , fell in love with the GWR donkeys years ago , the main line into Wolverhampton ran literally along the bottom of me Granddads garden , think it was W'ton low level ??  Me own dad couldn't wait for me to leave home at 16 ( i joined the Royal Navy) so he could turn my old bedroom into "The railway room"  he's still alive (82) and the model he created is still alive and running today.

LMS is another favourite , and yes there'll be Kings Castles Jubilees and co running through aswell , went on a brilliant trip a few years back , Carslisle into Yorkshire then back into Lancashire , over ribblehead viaduct , pulled by none other than Princess Elizabeth 6201 , what an experience that was , even got to stand on the footplate !!!!

My real passion however is tank engines , like you say they're little cuties , does anyone do a Terrier iin N gauge ??

Good start, Murph.

A suggestion: Recess those screw heads - you'll regret it later otherwise.

Very pleased that your stock has a means of returning - can't understand the fascination with watching stuff going backwards and forwards - it's like watching Wimbledon.

That's what you see in real life Doug, trains going backward and forward.

DD those screw heads will be under a small embankment/hedgerow eventually but thanks , i see what you mean , i've always liked the idea of having return loops or dog bone type track plans as you can leave one (or more now with DCC) train(s) running whilst having some shunting practice in the yard , the loop you can see will be a hill when i get round to it , BECKETTS HILL , hence the station is called Becketts Edge.

Well , days over with , two nights to do then 18 off , hoping to make some serious progress , thanks for the input so far guy's :thumbs

Right , off for shower then footy with a tinny or four (big Liverpool fans here) , oh !  and don't mention the cup final :Red Card

IT WAS OVER THE LINE !!!!!!!

Slainté Murph  :cheers

I'm sorry Murph but you're a total lost cause.

First it's GWR and now you tell us you're a Liverpool supporter .............:shock::shock:

I thought there was some kind of vetting procedure on here Bob ? ..............:mutley:mutley:mutley:mutley

Murph,
        Dapol do a terrier in several liveries,although the ONE Terrier that the GWR had is very hard to get hold of.
         And yes......It was over the line....and that's coming from a Man.U.fan.You were definately robbed mate!!!:roll::twisted::lol:

Ah yes, I've heard of that Murph.  It's a sort of closed cell plastic foam type material isn't it ?

Correct Peter , very lightweight stuff and ideal for the job , just don't attempt to stick it down with Bostik UHU etc as it melts , good old PVA is needed , I would love to know how many gallons of "The White Stuff" us modelling folk have used over the years :hmm

Decided to put the track laying on hold for the first few of me 18 off , it not a job i can actually say i enjoy if i'm honest and the track plan still needs a few tweeks here and there on the bit that aint done , So , i'm gonna concentrate me efforts on the station area seeing as i already got most of the bits n pieces i need , The station is going to be based on the one in Brant Hickmans excellent "Rorgyle" , i saw this layout back in 2007 at the Warley Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham , if anyone needs some inspiration for GWR branch lines go here http://www.freewebs.com/model-rail-uk/rorgyle.htm , look at the photos and watch the video , if i remember correctly it's actually built on a shelf measuring about 6 or 8 feet by only 12 to 14 inches wide.


Just as a prior warning , i am a b****r for super detailing , always have been , so you've been warned ................

The plan is to have a bay platform to the left of the station for the autocoach and goods facilities to the right , i'm planning to cut the whole area out of some 10mm chipboard and construct directly onto it before glueing it down , that way it's not a permanent fixture until it's finished and can be moved around , taken downstairs onto the dining room table for more comfortable working conditions etc etc.  If i can get anywhere near to the standard above i'll be pleased.

Slainté
