I blame the EDITOR for this.

I was walking past a skip and saw these.



So what did I think, Layout Baseboards. Size is 43" x 16". I really should not be thinking about starting something else.

Another thread on this forum is about the Airfix/Dapol Railbus kit. Remined me I bought one of these some years back. I also acquired a pair of drivers cab from Chris Leigh for this. Chassis was to be the Branchlines one, but this got extended to go under a MTK Bristol/ECW railbus (something else which needs finishing). I have a lot of unstarted kits in several scales.
Really must try and get something finished this year.

They look pretty sturdy, Clive. Used together for O gauge, perhaps? Laughing

The photo below shows my sum total of 7mm stock. An unpainted wagon and a County Donegal Railcar in 0-16.5

The railcar was built after a frustrating time painting another model, as it was pre-coloured. It runs on a triang Nelly chassis and a lner bogie that happened to be spare.



I am not totally discounting '0' as I have several other kits for wagons, a coach and Westdale ones for a derby lightweight single railcar and Sentinel.

You are definitely the better modeller Giles

if you want narrow gauge, but not committed to O scale, why not try 1/35 or 1/32 scale. Lots of accessories and still can build using 16.5mm gauge track.

Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails.
