An interesting learning curve, on Saturday, with the layout's debut. After a short while it became clear that the unconverted locos were a little too lively, even with a feedback controller. I hope th ...

I was on my own, operating Great Sutton, so did not have much time to see the show, and indeed missed two or three layouts altogether. I did like these two exhibits, starting with some Belgian Vicinal ...

New information from the show's organiser. Recommended parking road is Goring Road, which is unrestricted - but beware of obstructing driveway entrances, please. It is about a 5 mins walk back to the ...

Dudley,

The info I posted I'd gained as an exhibitor at the show. As I'm not an organiser I can't give you chapter and verse on parking, but have a look on Google Earth to find Fletchers Croft and ...

Finished the mill complex today. Having screwed it to the backscene, there was a light leak at the left hand end. To cover this I've added a chimney, and made the small door the entrance to the boiler ...

About 15 wagons, all the coaches (built so far) and two locos have been fitted with Kadees, now. But I've only got two packets left of the centreset couplers used most widely - enough for four items o ...

Finished the wiring - and it works; cake for tea in celebration! Just the jumper cables to connect up between the three baseboards, which shouldn't take too long, as they're already wired in and just ...
