I was thinking about coming up with a Gn15 flyer to put on the free literature table that you find near the front door of most hobby shows a few weeks ago, I made a bit of a start but for one reason or another haven't had time to go back to it for a while. Make of it as you will. Created as a JPEG b...

Steve, if you do run yogurt production you'll still need fruit for all those "fruit on the bottom" flavors... Anyway, is it just me or all our layouts starting to revolve around food? Watercress, Milk, Salt, Yogurt, Potatoes, Beer? Are we all just that hungry? Or perhaps were just subconcously tryin...

I hope the images provide inspiration for others on the forum to get something running :wink: Agreed! Having very limited space my layout right now consists of two piece of flextrack that I lay down on any suitable flat (and sometimes not so flat spots).

(F) TOP cars and their tops

So, I know that Heywood's Top cars had interchangeable, stackable sections. But how often were they used in alternative configurations. Were they actually used as flatcars or as extra high gondolas? I ask because I've noticed that all the images of Top cars actually in use (not images posed by Sir A...
