  1. 215 ex works

    Ex Works Loco no 215 straight from the bogie shop (Inchicore Style!) Thanks to Des from SSM for the Decals & excellent customer service! Also Riversuir for applying the decals for me - a right job removing the 'Intercity' logo. I've a few little painting details to do before she is properly finished.
  2. Ammonia wagon kit

    These baby's arrived yesterday by post so can't wait to start them. I'm a bit nervous as I've never even put an air fix kit together but Des assures me i'll be fine. His instructions are clear & precise to be fair & he has thought of everything! Wish me luck!!!
  3. Dapol & Bachmann Freight wagons

    Hi Lads, I'm looking to swop these for modern IE coaches , or freight wagons if anybody is interested???? They are in perfect condition, never used, they just don't fit in with my era of rolling stock.
  4. With the missus & Kids away for the weekend I started this new project.After hunting down this Loco Shed for so long I didn't want to leave it gathering dust in a box so decided to do a modular layout & the plan is to wire it up so i can move the Loco's in & out of the shed using a 'shuttle' system. The tracks are just laid down loose so i know what type of points & curves i need.i also need more Ballast mat so i just have a few smaller pieces down loose to give me an idea. im not really sure what to do with the right hand side of the Loco shed where the '5th' road is, maybe a freight yard or put down a road instead of track??? any suggestions i'd welcome. My next step is finish the ballast & buy all the tracks/points that are needed then tackle the ditches.I plan to put a hut beside the Loco shed besides the 1st road going flush with the ditch & put a stone wall on the flat part of the ditch beside the hut. I want to do a concrete floor in the loco shed but was wondering what the best material to use for this effect? Also the 201 class Locos don't fit in to the shed whereas the 071/141/181 locos do so i'm gonna haft to raise the shed doh! as I said any sugestions, tips are very welcome, hope i'm doing it right!!! :
