Graham Farish Class 90 Review (90022) N Gauge

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

This is a review of a Graham Farish Class 90 Electric Locomotive in the Railfreight Distribution Triple Grey livery that is numbered as 90022 in N gauge. The model is one of the former British Made models that used to be made in Poole, Dorset before Bachmann took them over in 2001. The motor needs more power and is more noisy than my newer Graham Farish models that are Made in China nowadays. But its still a great model and to me it looks better than the Bachmann Farish examples as the driver’s cab windows look more correct on this one. I am planning to get a RES parcels ones and an Intercity one of these as well. Though I would like one in the new Freightliner livery as that looks cool. Overall Rating: 8/10

Kato SD40-2 Diesel Locomotive BNSF Review (HO Gauge) HD (400th Video)

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Here is my 400th video to come to my channel. This is a review of the Kato EMD (Electro Motive Division) SD40-2 BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe) Diesel Locomotive in the HO scale which is modelled to the 1:87th gauge. This is my first US Locomotive I own from Kato and it is very nicely detailed and it looks superb when the extra parts are added as well. The model will need horns when I can get hold of some as I didn’t find any inside the packet, but once I find out where I can source Kato spares for these models. I intend to fit the replacement horns to the roof. Overall Rating: 10/10

What’s the best place to get a fair price for a 1926 O gauge Lionel trian set I inherited? Hobby store? Ebay?

Look in Yellow Pages and visit hobby shops — ask questions.

Search the Internet. Search on eBay to see if anyone is selling trains and see their prices. Research at the library.

Do NOT leave your train with anyone while they research it!

Remember, too, once it’s sold, it’s gone. Take lots of pictures.

The Ribe Valley OO Gauge Garden Railway

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

My attempt at a garden railway. Sorry about the sound at the beginning, but it was fine before I uploaded it! My goals in building a garden railway were: a) To build a railway sympathetic to an already established garden. b) To make it as low maintenance as possible, due to an already busy lifestyle. c) To make a railway that I could just sit back and watch. d) To be able to run Triang/Hornby locomotives with Class 2 + 3 motors, which I love. To cover point a) I decided to build a railway/rockery hybrid, which I elevated from the floor to cut down the leaf litter and froglet trespassers on the line. I only have a couple of small, but sympathetic buildings on the railway as I feel stations, houses and people can sometimes look a bit tacky. For point b) I built a robust and simple dog-bone loop using roof tiles, cement, hard soil, slate stone and chippings. I originally used fish tank gravel on the track bed, which I later removed as I found it was more of a hindrance than a benefit. Point c) I kept it simple, but interesting, creating as many scenic views as I could fit into this small cramped area. And point d) I did away with the few points I had planned, as the old Triang locos don’t really like modern track, which I didn’t mind as this also suited point c) as well. I just love Triang locos! A quick clean up of a loco that has been sitting in somebody’s damp loft for the last thirty years and off they go! They are tough and nothing gets in their way. And their wheels

Here is the second Railworld Showcase video taken this year and this video shows further progress on the scenery and the peak which makes the fiddleyear invisible to the visitors. Also the terminal line at the station is now working and most of the layout is now finished.

Various other trains include the Class 90 in GNER, Hornby Class 43 GNER HST with five cars, Hornby Class 60 in EWS livery as 60085, Lima Class 37, Class 66 and a Bachmann Class 66 as well as many others.
