Had a little spare time today to get on with some more of the freight cars; starting with the tank car that was originally part of the Puerto Paseo collection, where it always looked a little small. I ...

I think I remember the name Brimtoy, but it was for clockwork trains - mine (I think) might have been a 4-wheeled Bulleid BOB Pacific named Spitfire. This would have been around 1954, or thereabouts.

Modelling is definitely taking a back seat at present, owing to a gardening project in progress. However some small steps have been taken in 1:55.

The Li'l Tugger 0-4-0T has started its upscale tra ...

Alastair, John, thanks for the input which is basically in tune with my thoughts on the subject. A layout is only worth what a potential purchaser thinks it is, no matter who built it and where it ha ...

This topic came to me after an overheard conversation at a show this week-end. The owner of the layout opposite was selling it, and was explaining how he'd come to his valuation. This was the cost of ...

Some pictures from the Beaconsfield show, where there was yet another Southern area harbour layout. (see the Events section for the others)

The oiler vessel was moored in the creek for a change, wi ...

Here is a small selection of the layouts at the show, starting with Porlock - a small GWR terminus with a little flavour of Hemyock and an equally idiosyncratic track layout, here involving potential ...

Yes, Bob, either of those scenarios works for me.

I do like the more rural view, which works for the 1:55 option while the distant town view is good if I get to the shared HO version; it may be a ...

Although I like the waterside view shown above (Wolfeborough on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH) I can't help wondering why the town is on the other side of the water when the railway is this side. Also the vi ...

The old Tri-ang mail van has been an ongoing job for some time. Now, finally, it's almost finished - just needing the transfers to be applied on the other side. Luckily these were in stock, as were th ...

I've had a couple of days to bring Shellsea up to show standard this last week. The extra uncoupler has gone in on the ferry siding, the wiring feed to the quayside siding has been made independent of ...

Flitting about from one thing to another (as usual) I've been looking at possible back-scene images - the reason being that I want to fix the back-board in place to keep the baseboard from warping in ...

Ever hopeful, I've won another online auction lot of a Model Power 0-4-0T of the L'il Tugger variety, at its starting price. There are slight issues with the body - the front pilot looks as if the wid ...
