Layout Construction / Re: Cant Cove (and Penmayne)

Thanks, so I need to buy a Graham Farish NEM pocket plus the coupling to go in it, which I think I already have and they don't need springs?

Graham Farish do not seem to sell them.

Hattons have 2A-000-014 Dapol Pockets for NEM magnetic couplings x 20
N Gauge £12

Would they work with non-magnetic couplings?

I may as well also buy some 379-402 Graham Farish NEM short couplings - Pack of 20 N Gauge £5.91 for some coaches for close coupling?

no, that's the conversion kit Dapol sell for fitting NEM pockets to older wagons, it won't clip straight onto the Farish wagon.

I did have a wagon that got smashed in a minor loss of temper (ironically due to the coupling pocket coming off a few too many times) and did keep the resultant parts for a possible scrap scene, I'll check if I've still got the chassis / coupling pockets.

you both know what my response in person is likely to be  :smiley-laughing: )

at a rough guess, might it include precision application of various types of high explosive  :smiley-laughing:

I think 'insertion' might be more worrying :worried:

 :hellosign: njee20 Itís an amazing place there is everything you can think of connected with railways from buttons ,uniforms ,track diagrams ,time tables railway furniture ,models in several scales  The old Henley on Thames Wooden Booking Office a small real station ,a signal box ,a pair of ploughing engines ,and various parts of old stations around the grounds so much more that I canít remember it was a long time ago when I was lucky enough to visit with my late mate Cyril. The little tank engine really struggles up the hill with two wagons loaded with people  when it rains it has to be pulled up by a bulldozer .The late Bill Mc Alpine was thinking of running Flying Scotsman there but allthough a clever man he didnít think of the incline out of the valley.

As a newcomer to the official Senior Citizen Club this month, I have long despaired about the way youngsters think and act, and can't help believing much is down to peer pressure/social media.
However, my mother (aged a young 85), has told us kids of her school days when skirts had to come below the knee in fear of dire punishment, yet as soon as they were off the school premises the girls used to put a tuck in the skirt such that it came above the knee.
Plus ca change, eh?

Quick Despair Depot update...



Lining continues on the T9 and the M7 - this pic shows the 3-stage lining process on the T9 quite nicely:





Some finished Warships:








And another gratuitous shot of the pug in situ, because I like it :):





More updates (and the beginnings of Test Track Mk II!) very shortly...

Forgive my ignorance but what's there? My Google-Fu is weak and is just returning stuff about the wedding venue/steam railway, not the museum.
