Thanks heirflick and Boskonay, love the tune myself and must get down to see the diesels! on the WCR soon. Will post a video of some moving trains shortly, if I ever get the tracks clean enough to stop trains from coming to unplanned, abrupt halts!

Hi heirflick - I think it was built from an airfix kit alright. I bought it at one of the 'Bray Toys of Yesteryear', found that Sean Ryan often has some great deals on kits and rolling stock.

Thanks lads, as I say that kit was already built when I got it and it only cost me a few euro. My building skills are still very much below basic level I'm afraid.

071 got on the line despite not having a train to haul. Was getting the dins in the kitchen this eve when the four year old said he'd something to show me in the sitting room. I followed both he and his three year old brother to the sitting room only to find poor 071 laying on a chair - they had somehow managed to squeeze her out of the cabinet. Luckily she escaped with only some loose catwalk handrails, I got a fright and she immediately departed for the attic.

Looking good Sulzer201. Luck escape for 071, I'd say you got a scare alright! What's the backscene in the pics of the oil train? It looks continental.

Hi josefstadt, yep it is European alright - possibly German countryside. I will change that in time and get something more authentic. For time being its screening off the attic rafters etc. I like the NIR loco BabyGM, she's rough and looks like she's been stored for a long time - rough and needs some work but she still runs and takes the odd gallop around the attic.

Hi Sulzer201. The layout is looking great. Am I right in thinking that the colour light signal in the second pic is one of the Hornby Dublo ones of old? Thanks for the info on the backscene. Could I ask where did you get it / who made it ? Thanks

Yes josefstadt the signal is an old dublo and it works. I got that back-scene at one of the Bray Toyfairs, from Walter Oberie - Kinvara-Model-Train / waldenmar@eircom.net. He does a lot of German/European stuff including back-scenes and his open to a bit of haggling too. Hi Heirflick - the little lad runs them under strict supervision but he knows not to touch the trains - even though its like Adam and Eve faced with the apple!
