    The region will be an Imaginary LMS destination, where exactly, I don't know. I'll have a look into that side of things. Maybe I'll just do my usual Linden Ford thing and make it look like some where ! At the moment, my 3F is winging its way across to Oz with a few points, but unfortunately my bank is blocking my purchases from Slaters... :whatever: I need to sort this out today.

    Cheers, Gary.

    The collection of items for the new layout has started...

    So far, one wye and one left hand point has arrived. The other 3 x right hand points are on back order...


    A BR 20t brake van courtesy of Kimbo, via ebay... Unfortunately the steps had broken off during transit, which hopefully be an easy fix.


    ...and one Dapol Jinty...



    I had ordered some wagons direct from Slaters, but my bank kept knocking them back. I have a feeling it has something to do with their ordering system. I can add items to the basket, select where the items are going (ie, 'rest of the world'), but their 'Check Out' page does not show postage. This has caused a problem as I pay what is shown on the page, but there is no additional cost for postage shown. I'd say that my bank has denied the payment as I am paying the required amount, (less postage cost), but they are requesting postage which is not shown and it doesn't match... Confused yet ??

    I have screen shot their 'Check Out' page to highlight what I mean. I have placed one item in the basket and you will see to the right there is a 'Sub Total' and a 'Total'. Neither of these have the postage added. Now read the circled text...

    I just don't understand why they can't give a 'postage cost' when finalizing an order ?? :scratchchin: :facepalm:

    Cheers, Gary.

    Might be able to give my Ixion Fowler a run on it when it's done, it's itching for some use.
    Cheers

    Nice Dapol Jinty you have there Gary, they are a truly lovely representation, now if you are interested 47501 was a Devons Road Bow engine 13B then 1D until transferred to Willesden 1A in 1959 and remained there until withdrawal in September 1964. I am indeed the provider of useless information :avatar:

    I have never looked into shed codes or loco numbers in regards to where they were allocated. Thanks for the info, but when I decide on what area of the LMS I'm modelling, I may just call on you for an appropriate number for my loco. :thumbup:

    Cheers, Gary.

    Anytime Gary, I have a full list of allocations for every LMS loco that was taken into BR stock and the date it was disposed, even where it was scrapped and when.:thumbs:

    I'm a great supporter of Rule 1 of our hobby whenever it come to loco's and liveries, however apart from the GER F5 everything else I've got or want are loco's that gravitated around Stoke on the Manchester Birmingham or Crewe Derby lines, so I'm really focusing on locos I've seen as a child or where sheded at Stoke 5D. Call it recreating the past but for me that's my Rule 1... weird but great fun.:thumbs:

    More goodies arrived from Hattons today...


    Now I have to go out and get myself an O gauge track gauge. As I stated previously, I have around 75' of code 100 rail to use, just need to get myself some copper clad sleepers, or as Paul had mentioned, using brass nails through wooden sleepers (coffee stirers) and solder to these. Either way, I need to get the track gauge first !

    Cheers, Gary.
