  1. At least there'd be less of an argument about the correct gauge....
  2. When the site was redesigned, it became almost impossible to search. There's a GA for the Great Central 9P which I know they have, but MMSI seems unable to find it.
  3. God Almighty, is 279 out already?
  4. Horsetan

    Greenway mania!

    Should that not be "peddling" rather than "pedalling "?
  5. As I understand it, Drumboe's boiler barrel is fine, but smokebox, tubes, tubeplate, inner firebox, stays, foundation ring, etc. will all be wanting replacement. That's after you deal with the bottom half. I reckon it'll be about three million Euro to get it going, allowing for inflation. DRC has always been hampered by not having the land to relay a section of the original line, something they say they will now attempt to address. That will consume many more Euro.
  6. Meanwhile, over here, it looks like even the 2021 shows are starting to be cancelled.
  7. I had understood the "WT" frames to be the Midland standard 8' x 8'6". Do you have something different? Also, the "WT" driving wheels are exactly the same as the LMS "Black Five" in diameter, number of spokes, bevelled rims, etc.
  8. Difficult cars to clamp. Or lift. Which is partly why I have one. But like all Mistresses, she's cost me a fortune, but. Rebuilt auto gearbox One radiator Three alternators (so far) Three batteries (so far) One head gasket and cooling system Can't wait to see what happens next.
  9. Not as contaminated as the cooling system of the oul Citro├źn was when the head gasket failed....
  10. As it's 007, maybe the IR logo could be turned 90 degrees to form a pistol?
  11. Yes, the builder couldn't wait for Alan to do the dedicated "WT" chassis (which will have spacers for 21mm gauge), so is using the Comet chassis for the Fowler 4P 2-6-4T. He'll probably have finished the model by now. C'mon now, Alan, get the run of yourself and do the chassis, please! We're still waiting!
  12. Someone was already having a go at this back in September 2018 - this was on display at Scaleforum at the time: I think it was the same fella who built this "W": I still haven't bought a "WT" from Alan, as he (still) hasn't finished his chassis etch design for it yet.
  13. That one is featured in the current Model Railway Journal
  14. Excellent. The "Killybegs" turntable kit was long unavailable.
