This is almost the whole of Stoney End, my last attempt at 009, back in the 1970s. The track plan was an oval with hidden sidings under the hill on the rig ...

Modelling time has only come in occasional 30 minute slots recently, hence the work on lettering the rolling stock. However, over the last few days I've started laying in the wiring, which is due to t ...

Does anyone know when the corrugated-side oil drum (as modelled in 4mm by Merit/Peco) was introduced? My suspicion is around WW2, but what sources of information I've found are more interested in the ...

At last the MSR is getting a corporate image - if such a concept existed in 1860 Smile These three wagons are for minerals or coal traffic. The bodies use the outer corners of Hornby cattle wagons.

Modelling time seem to be at a premium, just now, although I have started to letter the Mid-Shropshire Railway's goods wagons, with creative use of some LMS wagon transfers. This is using up a lot of ...

One of the annoying things about the Hornby 0-4-0 chassis is the way the connecting rods are in an open channel (the cylinders) once the body is removed. Inevitably, while juggling the body back into ...

Excellent, Bob Smile I'd be mourning the sale of my Bourbonnais (ex-Ste Emilie) if Salop Street did not have rather short fiddle yards - using a tender loco would mean one less coach or wagon in the ...

Nearly there. I've managed to add some cable-sheathing, split lengthways, to the safety valves to make them a bit more realistic. Also mended the broken cab-steps by grafting on the steps of the Nelli ...

Very much a warts-and-all shot of the new locomotive, with construction still in progress. I like the overall look, so just need to finish off the filling and fettling. More Kadees arrived this mornin ...

One of the re-geared locomotives has been away receiving some adjustments to the conversion. It was returned to its home metals over the week-end and a new body is already taking shape. This is using ...

A very enjoyable day at the Beckenham show, with many bargains bought from the junk boxes in the Club Shop for my other layouts and future projects. Shellsea's new operating cards need a little tweaki ...

A good day yesterday at the Beckenham show. As usual a collection of interesting layouts, ranging from Gauge 1 tinplate to N gauge. Sadly I ran out of space on the camera, so was unable to capture mo ...

Looking at the warning horn on your conversion, Bob, reminds me to re-fit the two horns on my diesel, before they get knocked off the work-bench and are never seen again.

I've recently been posting the story of a kit-bashed diesel for Puerto Paseo. At the back of my mind was something I saw a good many years ago, on a French preservation railway. As I was in the loft e ...

I was supposed to test the power feeds on the layout today, but instead spent the time re-writing the operating cards, as several of them had gone missing. I plan to attach a T-bar with a ring-binder ...
