    OO Works J15

    The first one is holding a rabbit in the air. The second is playing with his super-soaker. The third and fourth are playing the famous old shovel pointing game.

    OO Works J15

    It's soooo tempting to say that they're the "wrong livery", as their overalls should be filthy!!!! 😁

    That would never do! (Imagine a J15 in NIR "red bull", or an ICR in lined NCC maroon..................................................................................!!)

    Signalling diagrams

    Aaaaarrrggghhh! Looks ghastly.......to make! (Or have made!) At least mine's less complicated by far.

    Signalling diagrams

    I would certainly intend the point rodding to be static, not working!

    Signalling diagrams

    Interesting, Luke - that appears to make perfect sense. Any other thoughts, anyone?

    I'll check that out, Tony, many thanks.

    Signalling diagrams

    Folks I attach a track plan of a station very vaguely based on some sort of combination of Westport Quay and Valentia Harbour - the basis for my current venture. The idea is to have it signalled for passenger working / ETS. I have an idea of what signals should be where; the loco siding would in this case be just a hand point off the goods road at the top of the diagram, presumably, and there would be a home signal at the platform end for departures. But what of shunting signals? And positioning of point rodding? Thoughts on a €50 note to the usual address......?

    Hattons nightmare

    Cheap wagons! A few 5-plank yokes which will be good enough for a repaint and a level of weathering of truly ghastly level! If you search about at rejects an the like, they can be as cheap as £5 each.... Also a few accessories like a road van suitable for repainting as a P & T van of the fifties or sixties. I want two of these to meet mail trains... There are also several wooden-planked British goods vans which are a very good approximation to some GSR goods vans built in the 1940s. Again, I'm looking for as cheap as chips.

    Hattons nightmare

    Folks and folkesses (if any!) I have been trying several times to order stuff from Hattons online, to no avail. Every time I try to save a list of things I've ticked to buy, a message comes up to say "sorry....blah blah blah....fault reported to webmaster....etc". It doesn't work. I spent some considerable time trying to buy quite a god lot of stuff, yet their website - which at best is interminably slow - just doesn't work. Any thoughts, or alternatives with as large a range as they have? I emailed at one stage - no answer. I doubt if they have a "webmaster" - if so, he's Rip van Winkle as he's been asleep for a long time.

    OO Works J15

    A good accessory for a model J15 is a crew: driver and fireman in overalls, plus a tall figure with a black beret and long brown overcoat - Bob Clements hitching a lift as he often did! Once I get the present layout up and running, various well known characters will appear about the place in the form of little figures.....

    Patricks Layout

    Looks as close as anything to many standard styles, particulary GSWR. In this guise, it fits perfectly into its surroundings. Maybe Glenmore is an ex-DSER location, or maybe it's ex GSWR, like Rosslare - Waterford, Palace East - Bagenalstown, or somewhere between Waterford and either Mallow or Gowal Limni!
