I was idly wondering whether other members of this forum are involved in railway modelling?

I am, for sure.

I know that Zeb is building a layout for his son and that Mick (Wideload) has a layout.

Anybody else?

I have a lot of "OO" Gauge Paul, some purchased built and some white metal kits around 38 in all.
Also got a lot of "O" Gauge for garden but never got around to installing it yet.

I've got loads of HO stuff that I bought years ago in East Europe. This, together with building a steamer, was to be my retirement interest. I have the lathe and other machinery in my workshop for the latter but so far have
a) not retired properly and
b) not got the time anyway.
Incidentally the E. European stuff is of remarkably good quality, unlike their other products of that era.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

I have a huge amount of Hornby gear from my Teens & have recently bought several new Hornby sets & LTD edition loco's none of which have been out of the box. The longest one in the box & cellofeine is a Hornby/Joeff Eurostar set from 1996. Would love to set it up again but time & space dictate but i will still buy more!

I also have the Hornby G100 Rocket & accessories from the very early 80's.

I have a few bits from my childhood (the first one) but currently they just sit in the loft.

I do have a flying scotsman hornby loco that I destroyed when a kid, bu repainting very badly.

I have plans in my bottom drawer to build a Shunting yard. Haven't been able to do it due to the layout needing a big enough area. I now have that area as I have acquired a new Desk for my PC and will be using my old one which is 5ft wide by 3.5 ft Deep, its more than enough space for what we want :).

My older brother has the coolest weekend job going, he is a volunteer on the North Yorkshire Railway and has spent every Saturday for some time now working on the real things, but thats a whole other story :p He also is a very keen Railway Modeller and has built many Engines etc. He also has a small business building Kits for Modellers.

Wow, I agree, would love to do that.

A friend at work used to work on it too, doing the catering side of things. Now he's a chassis Engineer. Mmmm.

If you are interested in diesels, by all means pop over and have a look at my layout Carl :) Only up the road from you in Fordhouses.

My layout is merely 7ft by 3ft but you can get a lot of operating potential :)

I'm sorry but Zeb is definately NOT Building a train lay out for his son. Oh, he may be working on his set up as we speak but why tease his son saying it is for him. i saw Zeb myself buying a stationmasters outfit the other day :D :D :D

It makes me jealous when he tells me what he has been doing :lol: So far he has worked up from doing Washing, Polishing, OIling and simple maintenance type jobs to the glory of being a "Fireman".

What a brilliant hobby, never realised Zeb, just something else to put on my wish list when I get the time / money.

Well it certainly consumes both! The layout was about 4 months hard graft when these pictures were taken... :? Could never have achieved it all without Ragman though..
