  2. Don't forget about the G5 announced by Bachmann, finally something pure North Eastern. http://news.bachmann.co.uk/2018/02/lner-g5-0-4-4t/
  3. GNRi S Class 172 in Derry 1992

    Superb photos, I really like them.
  4. GNRi 0-6-0 Look-a-like

    Thank you for the mention, I did indeed create a PG class (number 10) but it was from the GBL series with a Bachmann jinty chassis and new tender one. I do have however a BR black Bachmann one that needs to be done, so it'll be on the workbench soon enough. I've attached these photos as I find them better than the other ones, they give you idea of what's involved, not too much really.
  5. Bachmann and Hornby announcements

    Some really good things to come from Hornby this year, while Bachmann have taken the back seat, but still good none the less.

  6. NCC Harland & Wolff kit

  7. Modellers Nook to close down

    Hello all, I just seen this on FB and thought I would share it. Sad to see it go, I remember waltzing in when Joe used to run the shop and it always provided an excellent service.
  8. Merry Christmas all!!!

  9. Patricks Layout

    I've said this before but I'll say it again, I love how the layout is surroundinged by black coverings, really makes the layout pop out and become the centre of attention.
  10. Star Wars Episode 8

    Has anyone else seen this? I just have and it is unreal. Left me speechless, and asking a lot more questions! Got a good laughter from it as well.
  11. It's quite ironic that 4 years ago I thought the Sandite set would be out of service and yet it has still been running these past few years, it's very much pleasing to see. If anyone has any photos or videos from this year, they are more than welcome to share. Here's my very quick video, enjoy!

  18. London toy fair (hornby)

    A thread over in RMweb showing what hornby had to offer at the London toy fair, some "interesting" (Q6 kit) things for sure. http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/107536-hornby-at-london-toy-fair/
  19. Hello all, Now that I'm commuting to Coleraine nearly everyday, you very easily spot movements on the network, such as the Sandite, new PW thing movin about and even some new wagons, which is what this thread is about. On Tuesday I noticed a flat bed bogie wagon off the traverser at York Road. It is nearly identical to those stored in Ballymena but they look brand new, with glossy black paint and the springs/axle boxes picked out in blue and yellow. What I want to know is what are they used for? Whilst passing Antrim today, there were 4 yellow boxes on top filled with ballast. The capacity looked very low compared to the ballast wagons currently at Blfast Central. I remember reading on this forum that the construction of them isn't as good as others, so it makes me wonder why new ones are being obtained, that is if they are new of course. I'd be interested to read if anyone has any knowledge or understanding about these wagons. Nelson
  20. The work that they have done is amazing, it looks brilliant. http://www.simonbrien.com/new-homes/cultra-station-bt18-0au-763
  21. Making your own iPhone

    Hello all, This may be a bit random but I found it extremely interesting and thought I would share it with you all. I know very little about electronics however I found the process to be incredible. The video also gave me some astonisghing insight into how easy it is to make your own phone if you know where to look. Nelson

  23. Books about early NIR

    Hello all, I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend any books which specially cover the early NIR years, just after the UTA or a book with a bit of both? The reason I ask is because I obtained the DVD "Steam in Northern Ireland, the final years", its very good and has lots of interesting scenes, so I just want to expand upon it. Thanks, Nelson
