Re: Facia colours?

I have used different colours over the years. Indian red, chocolate brown, grey.
If you go to Bunnings paint department they sell mistints cheap.
Pick something you like and go for it. Sometimes they even have weathershild.

Re: HOn30 modelling.

I have now laid the track work and run a carriage around to debug it. I did have to make some alterations to a couple of sidings and reduce the radius. I am now wiring it for DCC.

Re: HOn30 modelling.

This is a one piece small layout 1750mm x 850mm just a couple of inches shorter each way than 6 x 3. The reason being that it will fit in the Corolla with the back seats down. I will be using Minitr...

WW1 Victorian Railways Unit.

I posted this a while back in a modelling item and it really should have been here.
This find actually helped me with my family tree for both my father who was guard and my uncle who was a goods guard.

Re: Buy, Swap & Sell

I have now been advised that my son and grandson are going to 'N' gauge. This means that I have quite a bit of HO to thin out in the future. My starting point is with an NA 6A in HOn30 as described in Model Dockyard NA. This is 6A with spoked wheels, NWSL 0.3mod gearbox modified to fit HOn30, Mashim...
