After watching the slide show, you might enjoy the video entitled KLR Experiment which (at the moment) is ...

Hello Peter,

May I direct you to the posting for Friday 1st March Smile It's a Ford, but is admittedly up to ten years too modern for the ideal time-slot for the layout. Had I been planning to contin ...

As planned I am selling my 1:55 scale layout. However, as it uses standard Peco code 100 track it could easily be used for HO with only minor changes to the buildings.

Have to say the Ravenglass 3ft layout looks stunning, Bob, with lovely poorly-maintained track and a tantalising glimpse of the British style rolling stock. A Manning Wardle on a Terrier chassis, perh ...

A good day out at the Wealden show yesterday particularly as far as Isla Blanca purchases were concerned. I bought a couple of cheap(ish) diesels from a friend on the French Railway Soc. They are not ...

Here is a small selection of pictures.
I liked this quarry scene in On30, particularly the tractor on a rail-motor chassis. There was another using a Yesteryear tank lorry which has provided me with ...

It's taken me almost two months to check if the wiring work done in January was OK. Luckily about 95% of it was, but there were a few circuits left accidentally open, a loose wire or two and a couple ...

Many thanks, Alastair. Both were very simple conversions, the little one looks like a Chivers kit, but was built from spares in my scrap box, while the longer vehicle had styrene sides stuck onto a fl ...

With less than complete success bidding on eBay I have the potential of three or perhaps four assorted light vans, of uncertain vintage, for use around the layout. Two are missing wheels, so I'll eith ...
