Just had a surprise, and last minute, invitation to a show at Dulwich on 26 May. Luckily the venue is only about two miles away, and I've also managed to get some help for the morning, so it should be ...

The full-sized plan has been drawn up and it all fits the baseboard, though I have swapped the position of the cattle pen and goods store (as shown here), in order to minimise the time a wagon is need ...

For the first time since roughly the early 1960s I'm contemplating a layout that will include GWR trains. Perhaps I should have entitled this post "Rivet Counters Ahead". A collection of su ...

Visited the South Herts MRC show at Bushey, today. Left home in a hurry without the camera, which was a pity as there were several nice layouts. It was a useful day on many levels - chatted with mates ...

Elsewhere on this site it has been suggested that I might build a vacuum cleaner van, and a picture of one once owned by the LT&SR was included. It certainly looks like a good alternative idea for ...

As I'm out of spare crane underframes I shouldn't think a model of one of these vans is likely, just now. What were they used for, and why did they need to be mobile? Station staff must have had dustp ...

No luck yet with sourcing spare Beattie bodies, and I suspect they're unobtainable as spare parts.

Meanwhile thoughts about a possible "Wenford twig" layout have been progressing, and I'm ...

Nothing new to report on the layout, as there's some time to go before its next show outing. However, we're just back from a short (cold!) holiday trip to Dorset and Weymouth, so I was finally able to ...

Had a little time for thought about the Beattie tank. Think I'll try and see if spare body shells are available. If so, I'd almost certainly go ahead with backdating one for use on Salop Street. The o ...

Vacuum cleaners? Our Man in Havana/The Man in the White Suit - am I getting my film references mixed up?? Mr Ford is to be absolved of all blame in this respect; it was a member of the public who pass ...

My fellow operator on Sunday, Chris Ford, took this picture of the layout, which he describes as Our Man in Havana meets Minories.

APA boxes have been used as layout baseboards for some time, and one was represented at the show. This is one end of it - representing a low level loco yard with a suburban terminus on high level arch ...

The narrow gauge exhibits included the Evalight Railway in 009. I went round before opening time, so no trains were running. I did, however, like this run of buildings on a hilly town street. What I f ...
