Hello mate, if you need to get your hands on some tube trains, I recommend the 3D prints from N-Train. You can eitehr find him via google or his shop on Shapeways. Speak with Bob a bit, he is very helpful, and as he also does vinyls in conjunction with Electra. There are D78 stock trains listed at the moment (you need a 4 car and a 2 car to be accurate) which use japanese chassis and have underframes that take Kato bogies. Also he has some tube stock too. Thanks, Ian

Thanks for the links and suggestions Chris and Ian, will certainly investigate all those options. I'm not sure if I'll have LU stock actually running, but I would like to incorporate some elements of the network, maybe similar to the half exposed platforms at Paddington, or the flyovers just outside Farringdon







I've made a little bit more progress this weekend, have installed the first power bus district, just another three more to do!

Essential tools


Threading the wiring loom


First one finished, this one is slightly different than the others in that it turns back on itself to provide power to the larger terminus station area.


Cheers,

Jimmy

Would lok good. Queens park bakerloo inspired kings park. AndyRA this parish and the link i gave used west coast ( southern section) worth a look. Faringdon underground section would be good with curves to moorgate, barbican, the widened lines.

Thanks Chris! Although I will admit that woodfiller and paint does help hide the parts where I didn't quite get it right!

Your framing and electrics put what I have cobbled together to shame :-[
I think I'll just take up origami (and probably make a mess of that, too)

You're right. They hide a number of outrages. The curtain I intend to make to hang in front of my benchwork will do much the same. ;)
