Pretty much everything on that side is amazing, full of inspiration for any modeller, not just those of us who love British 70s modelling!

Letterkenny is one beautiful layout. Everything on it is top class work. The scenics, the buildings, the railway infrastructure, the rolling stock. I could look at it for hours. Although they need to sort out the electrics to stop the hand from the sky having to be used at exhibitions.

Very nice. Despite the popularity of Irish Narrow Gauge as modelling subjects we don't seem to get much of it on the site. There's a nice Irish NG layout in the current Model Railway Journal which I picked up last night purely for a gander at the porno that this Hornsey Broadway http://www.emgauge70s.co.uk/layout_hornsey.html

 

Fran you are correct it's another piece of pure class from Kier Hardy. I haven't seen it in the flesh, but I have seen Wibdenshaw and that's another epic piece of work. I've had a few small 00 gauge layouts in my lifetime and I used Peco track throughout and there's nothing wrong with it. The last layout I built was more of a scenic type P4 layout just featuring a part of the lineside and no buildings. I managed to squeeze in a few points they were my first attempts and weren't great but they worked just about.

 

Kier Hardy is an amazing modeller and his track work is sublime, from the building side and the finished look of the painted and weathered track you have to blink to make sure it is only a model. Wibdenshaw is one of the models that has inspired me to have a go at the wider Irish gauge, God help me. It could take years as I predict lot's of mistakes. But it should be a good learning curve and I hope the end result will be worth it.

It's amazing Seamus. This guy is at the top of his game and truly one of the best modellers in his field. It's one of the greatest examples of weathering a model and photographing it in the correct lighting. It just looks so realistic. There's a few lads in the UK modelling scene that are great weatherers of models, great track builders, and fantastic photographers. When all are combined this is what you get.

Seamus I think you are heading towards the dark side :praying: don't look round leave the light and come into the dark=))

 

He'll be wanting the Blue Pullman back.

 

As much as I love the yank stuff, I will always have my main interest in the British stuff since the early 60's, just so much variety, good looking locos and somewhat familiar locations.
