  1. Slight point of order the Railway Magazine goes back to 1897,with some very handy artcles in them even if thepictures can be rather dark,Andy.
  2. Better have one to go with the other two,Andy
  3. Now if it was a kit for the right gauge then i'd be up for one Andy
  4. Perth Model Railway exhibition,Valencia Harbour having a little trip up there from Wiltshire,what larks,Andy.
  5. You could always count the bricks and then work out the height and length from that done it a few times and it works for me.The trick to get the number of bricks and then go and measure a wall to the corresponding number of courses.Its also useful to remember that a standard is 6'6" high.Andy.
  6. The easier answer is 5 thou brass ,rolls easily and robust once curved simple to form elliptical roofs and easy to solder on rainstrips etc,Andy.
  7. My Passage tank will make to Arigna which it did a few times over the weekend,,just fits on the turntable ,its one of the reasons theres another C&L layout in the pipeline.ANdy
  8. Ditto again apart from being clobbered for tax still splendid kits,next on the workbench,once" Tailte"is finished(not sure how to justify a Queen on either Valencia or Courtmacsherry)Andy.
  9. Either option would do for me,though would prefer complete kit,Andy
  10. Look forward to it Phil,you're welcome to come and have a play.Andy.
  11. Phil Looks like you got me back i've been looking at doing Bawnboy Road ,as a "mainline" Cavan layout to accommodate all the stock which has got to be more than enough for Arigna so i might move down the line a bit and do Ballyconnel .Incidentally Arigna has a little trip out next month to Ally Pally.Andy.
  12. Have you thought of using MJT bogies,they do a basic etch for various wheelbases and you can use the existing sideframes as cosmetic overlays as well as the original wheels.Andy
  13. Definitely a loco type boiler looks a bit small for most standard gauge locos.Andy.
  14. Feeling slightly qualified to answer this one,the best coverage is The Railways of West Cork ,Reflections and Reminiscences,its privately published so no isbn or even an authors name.Mine came from the County Donegal people at Donegal Town station.The Bluebell Railway markets a large range of Irish photos with some very good T&C ones in there even better there are thumbnails of the pictures so you can see before you buy. go onto the Bluebell website then their museum link then photo collections the John Smith one is the one to check up on.Andy.
  15. Period is mid 30's,but with the odd passenger train.running on 9mm rather than 10mm,so my other 009 stock can have a canter.It is however built to full scale size just because i could.Andy.
