  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Either option would do for me,though would prefer complete kit,Andy
  5. Look forward to it Phil,you're welcome to come and have a play.Andy.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Definitely a loco type boiler looks a bit small for most standard gauge locos.Andy.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Courts next outing is to Swindon on the Saturday after Romsey,with Arigna at Ally Pally the end of the month,and the weekend in between slight change of location,i'm taking Llanfair Caereinion to Abingdon.Must pay more attention when accepting invitations.Andy.
  12. I'd certainly be up for some.I've never checked the back to back of my stock having relied on my faithful gauge i bought from Terry McDermot 30-40 years ago,its turns out to be 19.7mm,so far i've had no issues with clearances on the 20 odd locos i've built so far.Andy.
  13. Not next year and thefollowing year i'll my W&L layout there,Andy.

    ooworks, J15

    Definitely iffy cab fit,tender springs look odd as they don't have any spring hangers.Andy.
  15. Splendid pair of kits if look on the last picture of Courtmacsherry at Warley you will see the horse box in the middle of the rake.Don't ask me to explain what its doing there but give some time and i can come up with an unconvincing explanation,Andy.
  16. Thanks for the photos Leslie,as can seen Courtmacsherry is far from finished,but in my defence i only built the boards last Christmas,and this was only the second time the layout was fully erected.Hopefully by her next show(southampton the end of January).It should be well on its way.The main thing is the row of buildings,a lot of chimneys and slates,still something to potter on with over Christmas.Andy.
  17. All in the fullness of time Leslie,all in the fullness of time,Andy.
  18. Easy enough to make your own axles.Minidrill, grinding block and a bit of 2mm rod cut to length takes under a minute.Andy
  19. Two up and running, with Valencia what else ?,third one to build as a superheated one to complete the set.Andy.
  20. I might bring the station building along to Warley Andy
  21. Err sort of done about half of it (the Donegal half)but wasn't happy with the trackwork (Peco) it ran alright but the points are a bit sharp for the Donegal stock so currently dismantled waiting its place in the layout queue,roll on early retirement next year Andy.
  22. Glad you you enjoyed Castlederg,it would be nice to bring another across as always enjoy it,after all theres another 3 here at the moment,with work starting on Lough Eske in the new year that won't take long as theres already more than enough stock for it(Donegal layout No5) Andy
  23. Thanks,it wasn't unexpected in fact a bit of a relief as if one of my dogs was in the state Mum was in the last week,i'd have been straight round the vets.Andy.
  24. Corutmacsherry won't be quite finished as my Mum died last month which has obviously put a spanner in the works.Still its mainly the row of buildings along the road which seems to go on forever,anyway come and have chat.Andy.
