Anyone here into Model Railways?
I unwittingly entered the murky world of model railway enthusiasm when I built my lad a train set for Christmas a couple of years ago…
Enjoyable enough while building the thing, but how do you ‘play’ with trains? It lasted about 2 weeks before being broken up and sold 🙁
I saw some photos of the real ones that the experts build….man alive. A lot of spare time.Posted 9 years agopeajayMember
I get to play with the ones that are in the harry potter films, and everything else that ventures on to the west highland line, fort william is best, just like a model layout, nx panel and a lever frame, great fun, especialy when it gets busy in the summer working with the steamers, freights and dmmu’s smashing!Posted 9 years ago
anotherdeadhero Those photos arent up to date I dont have a working camera at the moment it suffered a beer incident and has died.
The station has been ballasted and all signals fitted with just a lot of little details remaining to be built and fitted.
The Loco is an old whitemetal kit of an ex Lancashire & Yorkshire railway 2-4-2 with a scratchbuilt chassis and scratchbuilt push-pull control gear (the extra piping and white cylinder on smokebox). It is finished, painted and running but hasnt had numbers put on.
The middle photo is a scratch built push-pull driving coach that is fully built but hasnt been painted yet.Posted 9 years ago
