Here are the first two of four Dapol London Transport Tanks. I have re-worked them, renumbered them and removed the Vacuum and Steam pipes. I have to weather them quite heavily and thought I would show a before and after scenario. These will run on the Grub Lane layout.

Remember that time I thought I had ages to build a layout for the MRJ Cameo Competition? When I loosely said I expected the layout to be ready in the first quarter of 2019 it seemed pretty distant, as we are now knocking on the door of December it’s suddenly starting to creep up a […]

Home from Stuttgart, and the lounge is again full of railways.  They will go upstairs to the loft tomorrow, when I have a little more energy.  We had another excellent week at the Stuttgart N-Club International meet.  On the whole, the layout behaved very well, though there were a few electrical issues needing rewiring as […]

Well, back from Warley, and back from this mornings equine lawnmower entrapment scheme, here’s a few more images from the 2018 Warley show. Oxfords OO N7 decorated samples, the announcement was covered earlier here Toy Fair . The appearance looks very well captured and the test models have worked hard hauling large trains without problems […]

When we finished exhibiting ‘Norfolk Coke and Tar Co.’ O gauge layout – rather than selling it, my Son John took it over as a home layout. Well things move on, and after discussions we have decided to put it back on the circuit with a change of name and different stock. The layout was […]

Just an out of the box Dapol 08 weathered to a light-medium level. A black wash and wipe method was used before airbrushing the main weathering colours.

Two 5 plank Dapol Wagons – just a medium level weathering for a friend. Again I varnished the whole wagon before weathering, this ensures the printed detail is not ‘lifted’ by the paint/thinners.

It’s been a while. Well for me anyway, Chris has been keeping you all up to date with BWS and the filthy goings on. It’s exciting for me to see Chris get so far with a layout and our group of friends are all horned to see the end result. I’ve known Chris for a […]

Last Thursday was No. 1 son Michael’s birthday, so he and Vickie spent part of the day at the Science Museum.  And he received some interesting birthday presents – as well as my Dapol ‘B’ set to go with his Pannier tank. I must visit the Science Museum again.  It’s been a good many years […]

Another busy evening, with 13 members in attendance.  And it was particularly good to see the Cha(I)rman back in circulation. There were so many trains running that I didn’t get to test my bargain from the Dapol website – a Dapol club special Schools class.  I settled for a comfortable chair and a chat! Martin […]

Off The Beaten Track

    My reasons for adopting ‘EM’  standards boiled down to my frustrations with the ready to run mechanisms of yore. I got sick and tired of their poor running qualities and watching them lurch through the so called universal points. Unlike my friends I never used Peco Streamline much, instead I opted for GEM […]

Today at the Spalding show the EP for Bachmann’s BR class 121 is on display. Due in about 12 months time it’ll be worth the wait. Underframe details look exceptional including the speedometer drive from bogie to chassis. The internal seating etc look full depth and better defined than Dapol’s 121/122, and that’s far from […]
