Busy sorting this end out. Needs tidying up and detailing (and ballasting!)..
The carriage shed looks great Ron. Looking forward to your scenics being progressed here. Crack on Sir.
Tunnel now complete but some detailing left to do.
My trusty station pilot!
Starting on the scenic's today:
Great Western???? Thought you were a confirmed LNER Man Ron?
I am, but this Pannier runs a treat!!
I was thinking the same thing Keith ! Then again, I can't talk can I...?? I did purchase a Pannier in O gauge....
The layout is coming along nicely Ron. The town scene and the back scene visuals work really well, nice job. Carriage sidings look good too. Will you be detailing this area with all those little details like ladders, hoses, chains/couplings, grease barrels, old seats etc...??
Yes eventually Gary, still a bit more to do!!
If I'm completely honest, I too have a couple of GWR loco's (one a pannier!) although in my defence 'yer 'onour, they were bought several years ago along with a couple of 4 wheeled coaches with the intention of building a 'roundy-roundy' for my twin Grandsons, but it never got built (and the loco's are still in the box!) as try as I might, I just couldn't get them in the slightest bit interested. My Son bought them one of the Lego train sets, but the novelty of that wore off after a few days, all they are interested in is electronic games. I give up!
(I also have a 45xx tank, it's an old Lima model and sounds like a coffee grinder!!)
You can also say its a heritage line and invoke rule 1.
Out of most GWR locos I'm of the opinion that the panniers are the best looking, also one or two ran on NE lines during the war years. I have seen a photo of one but can I heck as like find it again
As the original idea was to base it on the North Norfolk Railway at Sheringham, it fits in well!!
and for Keith!
Rule 1 always applies Ron, run whatever you like
( I have managed to resist up to now, but a pannier is a loco I did always want ......... sigh)
We could start a thread about those who have succumbed to a Pannier. Not sure if NHS or Medicare (Oz) would cover our rehabilitation though...
... and dare I say it but a few Panniers were allocated up in Scotland too, so I'm led to understand.
And I already have one before anyone suggests it. A rather dapper Bachmann Brassworks version.
There we are ....... that headed that suggestion off at the pass.
I wondered if anyone would beat me to a photo of this famous Pannier
We seem to have lost the plot!! Can we keep it to my competition thread for Sheringbourne please??
You started it. You posted a picture of a pannier!
