  3. 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.
  4. Merry Christmas all!!!

  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!

  14. 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/
  15. 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
  16. The work that they have done is amazing, it looks brilliant. http://www.simonbrien.com/new-homes/cultra-station-bt18-0au-763
  17. 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

  19. 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

  22. Durham Railway

    Hello everyone, I thought I better ought to start a thread here on this forum about our exhibition layout which was built by all 3 of us (dad did most of it) (although you'll usually see me operating her at exhibitions) many of you may have already seen the layout on the exhibition circuit last year and this year so far. This layout portrays a typical rural station in County Durham, set in both the 1930s London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) period and the 1960s British Railways period. The railways played a vital role throughout the north east of England due to the high number of coal mines and manufacturing centres, resulting in heavy freight traffic. Passenger traffic, although less important than freight, grew with the spread of industry. What we are hoping to achieve is the busy atmosphere of pre-World War Two days, leading to the subsequent decline of traffic through the post-war period, when the railways faced increased competition from the roads. The latest exhibition which was the NDMRS Bangor exhibition in the grammar school saw the layout win an award for best exhibit. Here are some pics, The layout starting out, the layout took roughly 5 weeks from start to finish. This pic is from our first exhibition which was the first Bangor one. I didn't managed to get pics of the exhibition on show at carrickfergus but here it is at the first Bangor Christmas show. And here are some from our latest show, Thanks for looking Nelson
  23. 3D Printed Models

    To me this is fantastic news, although 3D printing isn't quite perfect yet this is very promising for the future, take a look http://www.steamtrainsireland.com/news/ the RPSI are taking scans of 10 vehicles and using it for their museum but also as stated "This project can also be seen as a pilot for making the entire RPSI collection accessible digitally. These assets may also have the potential to generate income for the RPSI through generating small scale models for sale, virtual objects or perhaps future files for 3D printing." Are possibly making 3D printed models to sell, and maybe one day you can print out your very own GNRI V class
  24. Spotted this on Facebook and thought some of you might like it. https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/hurricanemk1c/14981123884/ I personally think it looks really nice.
