Hi @golden oldieHave you sent this Simon chap a mail through the email channels as per the Pendolino Instruction book?


That goes to Revolution Trains who then forward it onto Simon and it ends up in a black hole. The only response I received from Simon was through messaging him through this forum once he had joined


No Lindi, that email now automatically forwards to the Rapido repair agent

Welcome and Introduction / Another newbie

Hey all, just thought I would stop by and say hi. Finally getting around to starting my N gauge railway, been on the cards for ages.  Had designed a layout for one side of my garage and had purchased a loco and track to get me started.  Then we were given a few pennies by family then decided to convert the garage to a bedroom, so no train set for me! (not that I am complaining!)  Anyway now I have managed to fine some space in a 6*8 shed. 

I have decided on a simple layout that gives me plenty of scope for various scenery which was I am really looking forward to having a go at scratch building/ kit bashing.  |Money is tight so trying to do everything on a budget and have watched plenty of great vids on youtube on how to make do with cheap ingredients!

Have started having a go at scratch building some shops and housing using card and papers from scalescenes.  My first headache was trying to workout what size to make them.  How do you know how big a building is?  Well I picked up a kestrel 2 unit shop kit, and that is what I have based my shops, terraced house and my 3 story town houses on.  Pleased to say that I seem to get better each time I make something, nothing up to the standard of some of the pics I have seen though.

Anyway I have waffled on long enough. 

Hi.

Simon

G'day from Australia, Kevin, and welcome to the NGF!  :thumbsup:

I'm a Durham boy myself, though I live a long way from the county of the Prince Bishops!

I'm from Houghton-le-Spring, which unfortunately isn't in Co. Durham any more. But to me it still is.

Your dioramas are great!  :beers:

Ben A stated that it was to come from Rapido Repairs

CoT livery info:

Colin advises - Livery on the first batch will be that of the loco in the Swindon Museum for many years. Plain GW green with GREAT WESTERN on the tender sides.

Couldn't be 100% certain but I think it may be this:

American N Scale / Re: The Closet Branch - A layout in my closet.

I can't wait for the first video from the layouts new home. There are sides of the Closet Branch we've not seen before, it's going to look like a completely new railroad  ;)
Wonder if the Road Foreman will give us a complete tour of the line, so we can re-qualify the Closet Branch?
