Buggar! I was convinced your name was Toorali oorali addity!Hi, Sorry yes I do have a name and a sense of humour! The name's Martin. As for trains and rolling stock I bought a mish-mash of job lots and have ended up with a Pico 0-3-0 , a Stainz and a Bachman engine which I haven't identified (but it's a 0-2-0) there's also two small diesels and a dead live steam . Rolling stock is mainly the cheap Chinese lgb copies , I've wrapped the axles with lead to make them more stable. The layout is progressing but as the winter draws on I'm scratch building models. I have just downloaded a programme called uphotomeasure that allows scaling off photos, really useful!
Hi Paul, here are 2 pictures of work in progress , the latest is a scratch build of our house in 1:24. Funny thought I had loads of photos, I'll take some more.Welcome, pictures would be good. You're about to be introduced to the infamous scale discussion and LGB's Elastic Ruler!
