  1. That Reg Thing.......

    Not anymore, GM sold their European Division to PSA who comprise of Citroen and Peugeot. Also GM Electro-Motive Division is now owned by Progress Rail, whose parent company is Caterpillar
  2. Baseboard sizes

    If you build them properly and braced etc to avoid sagging either size is good Regarding height, I'm a great believer in having them at 'eye level', but being 6'4 its not something I often get to experience. The closer to eye level the better as you don't look at real trains from a helicopter or cherry picker....
  3. Class 121

    Expected in 2018. From Mr Paddy Murphy himself.

  6. http://www.modelrail-scotland.co.uk/index.html Well worth a visit, a smaller, friendlier version of Warley. Flights are also cheap from Ireland at present, given there is no 6 Nations Rugby in Scotland that weekend. Friday is the cheapest day to fly and Glasgow International Airport is a short taxi/train run away http://www.secc.co.uk/attend/how-to-get-here.aspx The MRSI will be exhibiting with O'Connell Street, and Bleach Green Junction will also be attending from Ireland

The buildings on the west side of the street have been modelled using ordnance survey maps and photographs of the period. The civic monuments including Nelsons Column “the pillar” grace the centre of the street. Many figures of people in the model including cyclists, horse transport and “internal combustion engine vehicles” sharing space with working trams, busses and trucks.
