    Ballymena & Larne #6, #106

    I’ll follow this with interest Tommy. Having embarked on a layout that will incorporate Ballymena Railway station, albeit in OO gauge to your 15 mil, this will fascinate me. Paul

    Looking really good Tony. I’ve subbed you in anticipation of lots of moving action. 😁 Paul

    I really like the look of that, you are maximising the use of the baseboards with the positioning of the shed in that corner yet it doesn’t feel crammed in. Paul

    I need to visit Dublin again. When you mentioned this building I googled it (Jeeves was having a lie down!) to see what it looked like. The skyline of the city has changed dramatically from the last time I was there so for now your layout will have to be my map. Paul

    Glad to see I’m not the only one painting the rails with a paintbrush.🤯 Paul

    Omagh Goods Yard

    You may have had to chop a bit off that shed but you’ve captured the essence of the building perfectly. Your woodworking skills shine through once again. Paul

    Omagh in N Gauge

    Superb looking Tony, this gives us all a glimpse of what you will achieve with your OO incarnation. The station build is particularly impressive. Paul

    More awesome photos there. A truly superb layout. Paul
  9. This might prove to be a bit of a long shot but I have a bee in my bonnet in wanting a Murphys Model 071 in the NIR livery. If anyone may be thinking offloading one or would know of someone who is, I’d be very interested in re-homing it. Please PM me with any info. 🙏 Paul

    Patricks Layout

    Smart idea Patrick. The catch point retails at around £10 so why not save quids by using a broken point. ♻️ Paul

    OO Layout - To be Named

    I do love a Parkside Dundas kit and have built a few. More detail than your bog standard Airfix affair and very satisfying, as you say, to see something trundling round the layout built by yourself. Cambridge Customs do sheets of decals for Airfix and Parkside kits allowing for multiple running numbers, etc to be applied. If you are doing a lot of kits they are very good value for your dolla’.

    Silverfox Models NI 101

    Thanks for all the feedback chaps. I’ll check Halfords to see if they stock the Ford Monday blue in rattle cans. I don’t have an airbrush and do not want to brush paint. The Bachmann class 20 chassis, is that any class 20? Are they all the same? Ideally I’d like a dcc ready unit to save the hard wiring process. Paul

    Silverfox Models NI 101

    Having seen this loco today and yesterday at the Bangor show, I fancy getting one. They bare a striking resemblance to the Western and it’s always my favourite loco sitting at Cultra. Looking at the website I see it is available in kit form with the only requirement a Class 20 donar chassis. Has anyone built one of these kits and if so could they point me in the right direction of the donar chassis required? Are they as detailed as the MIR kits with the etched brass? Finally, I’d like to produce it in the blue so is there a suitable option in the Halfords range that would suit? Thanks all for any help. Paul

    North Down Model Show

    GNR, no apologies necessary, I didn’t make any effort myself. I spent about two hours at the show and it felt like 5 minutes. Did anyone else see The Belmond sitting at York Road later in the day? I passed it on my way home at 5. Paul

    North Down Model Show

    I think that is possibly the best show yet. The layouts were superb and the trade stands seem to have grown in size. A brief hello with Warbonnet and a nod to Garfield plus a chance to see those bubbles in the flesh. I’m very tempted but I’ve yet to justify how they fit in to my layout. Never got to chat to Leslie but I’m maybe thinking of taking another run down tomorrow. Time took over and I didn’t quite get to see everything. GNR, sorry I didn’t get a chance to meet you. That guy in the station masters outfit was eye catching. I bought a single photo of Ballymena but alas only of the engine shed. If you like pics of old locos though, well he was your man. Paul
