    Totally agree Noel, Your first picture, i thought this a very detailed layout, great to meet up with yourself, Kirley, Hunslett 102, Dhu Varren and a few others, missed the chance to talk to IRM reps but still purchased 12 of their superb wagons, looking forward to and planning next years visit. Highly recommended show

    Some great shots Noel. Always a treat to see the different angles of the rolling stock. Brilliant, well done TDR

  5. Hi All I’ve taken the plunge into DCC and will be converting the control of the layout shortly along with some locos. Any advice/tips on decoder selection (sound/non sound) wiring, running etc., is welcome. My head is buzzing from reading manuals in choosing which system. My choice of system is Gaugemaster prodigy Advance2, based on cost, future upgrading although I only run three locos at any one time and this model may be sufficient to cope with power wise. Will post updates on progress TDR
  6. The Derry Road Workshops

    Hi all and a warm welcome to the work shop. Over the next few weeks I will be relocating all thats required, benches and work stations, spraying booth, shelves, tools etc, its the ground floor of my garage complete with electricity, house phone link and wifi. I have a space of 16ft by 22ft to operate in, my old place as some members have seen was a 8ft x 6ft shed. I hope to scratch build various wagons and other items that may be of interest to some forum members. First on the bench will be the curtian sided cement van, constructing a rake of at least 16. Thats the introduction over, watch this space for updates. TDR
