  1. We’re not seeing enough of this delightful layout. More please. Stephen
  2. As Robert points out, you need to be oh so careful with cant and transitions on model railways. They are not the same as the real thing, where space is, generally, not at a premium. I’m another who subscribes to the ‘less is more’ point of view. You only need a hint of canr to have the desired effect. Stephen
  3. An unusual shot looking from the back to the front of the train. I’ve not seen many like that. Stephen
  4. Just came across this http://www.rue-d-etropal.com/3D-printing/3d_printed_Irish-5ft-3in-gauge-trains1.htm Stephen
  5. Almost an inglenook layout. Stephen
  6. Shame but it’s understandable. Stephen
  7. I first came across this photo in The Railway Magaine of August 1964 in an article entitled ‘New Irish coaches are versatile’. The order was for 70 coaches from Cravens of Sheffield, 10 to be delivered complete, 30 coming as shells to be completed at Inchicore and 30 to be constructed at Inchicore with technical help from Cravens. Of particular interest was that the vacuum brake was compatible with the brake system used on the railcars then in use. One final point is the figure 2 on the doors denoting they were second class. Stephen
  8. Nice. Stephen What wheelbase were the wagons? Stephen
  9. The loco is an E1R 0-6-2T, a Southern rebuild of an LBSCR E1 0-6-0T, but then you probably knew that. The coach appears to an LSWR gate brake, similar to the kind of thing produced by Kernow Model Centre. Stephen
  10. Halwill Junction, the southern end the North Devon and Cornwall Junction Railway, one of the last of Colonel Stephens lines to be built. He used to refer to them as associated railways, the fifth group of lines in GB. Stephen
  11. So true, but it’s the enthusiasts who are the most vociferous in terms of telling what you should be doing and how. Stephen
  12. And finally, how would the lime and coal have been delivered and the beet pulp and refined sugar collected, in trainloads or wagonloads? Stephen
  13. Thanks for that. Stephen
  14. Coal and beet obviously arrived in open wagons but how did the lime arrive? Stephen
  15. I expect there’s a good reason why B131 is running bonnet first. Stephen
  16. A thing of beauty indeed. Can’t wait to see the others. Stephen
  17. It really does look like the real thing. Well done. Stephen
  18. There was just such a proposal not so long ago to do just that. We’ll have to wait and see. Stephen
  19. I was always under the impression that VAT was not applicable to secondhand goods, the process of adding value through the life of a product finishing at the point of sale. Is this simply a case of raising revenue the easy way, catching the large, multinationals proving too difficult. Import duty is entirely a different matter. Stephen
  20. So,was somebody or something just making a point with the suspension? Stephen
  21. What about the Tara mines traffic, doesn’t that use the same track to the same terminal? Stephen
