There are two ways you can get your club involved with the MRL Forums!
1. You can send the club's details to an administrator to be advertised such as where the club is based, when you meet up and what your website (if you have one) is.
2. If you want to go the extra mile, you can set up your club's own sub-forum! This will not only allow you to advertise, but also mean you and your members can have a forum of your own to use for your needs.
What ever you want, all you need to do is send an Administrator a PM to get your Club or Society added here, and outline what you would like from us.
I find the prices quite stunning, there's only one model that caught my interest but I'll not be spending half a week's wages on a tiny four wheeled diesel. The mechanism in this tiny loco is probably on a par with one of the the two power bogies in the original Bachmann HO scale 44 ton GE centre cab, so dodgy to say the least when running on Hornby's own points even if it is coupled to the match wagon.
Of course, we all know about Hornby's (optimistic, to say the least) due dates so I reckon there's going to be enough wish-listing and pledges to buy "one each of every available livery" on a certain box-opening forum to keep its members' posting frequency at commercially acceptable levels for the next 18 to 24 months.
Well after a bit of searching have found the Tori Arch.
If it fits it will be going on the back LH corner of the layout I say If because it is really meant for War Games rather than model railways.
Fortunately there doesn't seem to be std sizes for them.
Once assembled it will be painted red with a black base on the posts and the model base stone of some sort.
This is the third of three posts planned to cover the Ballachulish Branch. It includes the final length of the line approaching Ballachulish, some details about the quarries and a November 1950 article about the line which has been taken from The Railway Magazine of that date.
In Part 1 of this story we covered much about the history of the line between Connel Ferry and Ballachulish. We start Part 2 with a few reminders of what was covered in Part 1 and provide some additional material from various sources before continuing our journey North along the branch.
