  1. Tell you what the best noise is at the moment a 071 or a 201 accelerating hard
  2. Wont bother me Andy not a kettle fan I'm afraid , diesel oil in my blood, comes from being a driver on BR class 31, 47 and 50s Best job I had was the last Oxford (2300) back one spring evening 7 mk1 coaches 2x class 50s in multiple ( one was being returned in train to Old Oak so I mu them) my friend was in Slough panel box that night and they clocked me at 107mph past the box, the noise leaving Reading was nothing liked I've heard since

  4. Yes the wider sleeper spacing does fool your eye, doesn't it, makes it much more borad gauge like, good job, your layout has given me ideas for my new small terminus , thanks again Dave
  5. Hi all, what's the best sound decoders for 141, 181, 071 and the new 121 locos please, also suppliers
  6. Yes that's what I was thinking, think I will stick with the oo, but use the new bullhead track, with the wider sleeper spacing it does give it a more broad gauge look even if it isnt
  7. Eoin Yes many thanks, going to stick with OO as I have pre ordered 2x 121 class and there are a few locos about if you look. Also fancy the new Peco bullhead track as it does look super with the wide sleeper spacing 👍
  8. Hi all, I have been a modeller for many years in N and Z scale with exhibition layouts. I am now in the process of being able to build an OO layout at home. Now do I go 16.5 (OO) or 21mm in Irish railways or OO for the Scottish Highlands. I see the Murphys models are becoming hard to find but are they easy to convert to 21mm, what about other Irish manufacturers. Just some thoughts
