  1. Ballyercall (New Irish Layout

    All my rolling stock is OO Gauge, if I was to opt for Peco Bulkhead track, ( which is equal oven to Peco Code 75, !!! or Peco Code 100...!!! I don't have a clue as to which is better ) would that mean having to change my rolling stock ,TIA BTB

    Well done on your work so far, TinTin, I hope building that hill s easier than climbing it.. ..👍 & for what it's worth, here's a photo I came across while checking out bray railway, don't know if it's any value in what your planning, & I don't know if it's still available,. BTB

  7. UTA 2-6-0 Ex-NCC 'Earl of Ulster'

    I have to say this thing of making a model loco look so perfectly like, or as near like a prototype as possible leaves me asking why ! This is supposed to be a hobby !!! Of course there are people on here who wouldn't entertain anything else, & the very best of luck to each & every one of them, & if any of them decide to dismantle a loco & bash it, bend it into what they decide is more to their train ( no pun intended ) of thought & style, then so be it. To me if I can lay my paws on something that to my Specsaver eyes, looks a bit like what I have in mind & with a bit of graft, tweaking or whatever, I'll be happy to run this loco on my layout & as said before, if it passes the 2 foot rule then it'll do for me, I actually have 2 LMS 0-6-0's that I intend to get bashed, bent into shape....but this will not be done by me, I hope it'll be done by someone who has the skills, I know my limits.. .. I'm not looking to have a model bashed or styled into something looking so perfectly similar or identical to a prototype that'll be sitting in a glass case up on a shelf, I enjoy playing trains, each to his own.......just saying.
