  1. Love it! That looks great. Lockdown allowed me to build a small shed/workshop/potting shed to keep my micro layout in. I had an old double glazed window and apart from the roof panels, was able to build it with wood I had about , including old fence panels. I'm planning a small outdoor extension to the micro , to add a little more running space. I'll put some pics up soon , but I've actually found myself busier lately !
  2. I happened to watch both other Galway Gen Van items . Perhaps I did let my one go for too little , they could have got it for £60 less than these... . Here is a shot of the bidding on both
  3. Same two bidders as the last galway gen. I put one on myself, it sold for decent money (to fund a guinness liner pack for meself :-)) but it did not attract these two bidders, so sold for much less. (Although still a lot more than my original purchase price so I'm happy believe me!) Just wondering, though.....
  4. Gen Vans appear to be out of stock everywhere, perhaps leading to the higher prices
  5. I noticed these auctions too. It seems a little odd.
  6. With the dough I've saved on diesel over the past two months I can grab one of these. Just curious, is there a vague release date for the various liveries? That'll help me budget.
  7. Looking great already !
  8. Thanks David, still a lot of neatening up to be done of course, but that's the basis, and most importantly I have a working model with point motors etc - being able to just flip the small board to fit them was great!!! I am going to make another 'scene' on the same size board, which I can join in a modular fashion to either side of this one. I'm just delighted that it works well and I can now get the balance right between build and operation! It is also interesting how much you can do with 3ft x 8" .
  9. I did indeed. Made a very nice model, I'll take a pic tomorrow. I know they used to do s good few kits . I haven't been on the pulse of the scene for a year, so I dont know if they are still active
  10. Excuse the test wagons! I ballasted the track and added the basic scenic details , I dont plan to add much more as keep it simple is my new motto so that I actually achieve a functioning railway !
  11. I like the black and silver, also the grey. There I said it! (Dont get me wrong though, orange and black is just Irish and that's that)
  12. Thanks folks. More to come! I'll be detailing that building a bit more. I'm trying to fit some electro magnets for Auto uncoupling. Does anyone know if they would be powerful Enough to work through 6mm ply ?
  13. This layout amazes me. I used to work very near there, about 25 years ago, remember cycling those very streets . It is like a time machine for me. Thank you. This layout amazes me.

  14. This is looking great! I wish I had picked up 112 (the happy face engine!!!) A few years ago, but I opted for a couple of IE and later liveries. Your layout looks like it will offer a lot of running options.
