The shop you visit sounds interesting Dave :thumbsup:.......how about a few pics next time you are there ;D

And pictures of the chopped locos would be good too, my previous layout was Baltimore & Ohio RR so I do have an interest in the American stuff

Hi there Dock, he will be closed this Saturday because he is taking his family for a steam train trip, will take some pictures next Saturday.
Keep on Smiling

Hi Lawrence, the front, back and cabs on the locos have been changed, the idea was to make them look like they were made in the USA for some other market.

Some right curious beasts there Dave, not without the bounds of reason to expect to see something like that working in one of the poorer South American Countries  or the Caribbean even - ooh layout ideas there  ;)

Welcome aboard

Thanks for the encouragement Lawrence, I have built many layouts that use either British, American or Japanese models but my object with this layout is to be original and different.

To be honest Dave, with your "custom" locos you could come up with a new model railway concept, your own custom locos & rolling stock, an imaginary location, all based or the original railroad concepts but with an oldrailbug twist.  I love to see innovation and quirky things in our hobby, I believe it reinvigorates the mind and makes one more open to new ideas  :thumbsup:

Wow...I'm really surprised by the diversity here, all of its interesting stuff!  oldrailbug...really like your creativity expressed through how you re-fashion these locomotives!  As another poster commented, its totally within the bounds of reason!  I have two older Minitrix U30cg's that I often think of putting the dremel to and making them into a single double-ended (i.e. cab on both ends) locomotive with a similar backstory in mind.

As for my, I primarily buy European...I seem to be gravitating towards French, Dutch and (what little there is) Belgian locomotives.  I'm sorely tempted to get some Italian locomotives.  I've also got quite a bit of Japanese and a Class 150 DMU i recently picked up!  I really like trains!  Like someone else mentioned, you see these 'little works of art' and its hard for me to say 'no'!   :)

Hi quinntopia, full marks for Belgium! Great variety of diesels for such a small country. It's a shame Kato doesn't do its magnificent Nohab in any SNCB version that would IMO be one of the nicest continental diesels ever. If they'd do I'd be in. For conversions of Belgium locos see here:

Here's a list of all Belgium models in N gauge (language is Flaams, but there are pics and numbers ;) )

Happy modelling,

May aswell introduce myself, many of you may know me from other forums.  :wave:

My names Paul, I've been modelling N gauge now for 4 years but have nothing to show for it  :smiley-laughing:.

My new layout, Moorings Way, is a Modern era layout set in a fictional location just north of Birmingham on the West Coast Main Line. Although it will be based on a Modern Setting, I will run whatever I want! I love some of the older BR liveries including the sectorisation liveries. Also, don't be suprised to see the odd steam special  ;D.

As some of you may already know, I'm modelling Edwardian London.
I'm also helping build a 1950's/60's BR layout set on the North Wales Coast with my local club.
At home my other layout that I'm slowly building is a 1950's branchline somewhere in South West Ireland.



I only work on one of mine at a time so progress is very slow. I'll put more in the Layout construction thread.
Personal motto: You don't have to be mad to be a modeller, but I find it helps!
