- Feb 10, 2013Hi Mike
Good to know you are still active and keeping well.
I will always be grateful to you and your mum for the kindness you showed me when we had an AGM down south somewhere.
Always remember that if you are stuck for anything in the modelling line just send an email and one of us might come to Spain for a holiday, I have all mine in The Gambia so pass Spain usually at 35000 feet up.
As for Graham in Cyprus, home of what was a fabulous narrow gauge system at one time, just convert those HO us modellers to the real scale, there must be something of the CGR left to get interested in.
Since getting involved with the 7mm NGA I think I have built 60 steam locos, 30 yellow perils (Diesels) and over 250 pieces of stock and still at it, well err latest is a LBSC Railway 6-wheel brake van (0 gauge) etched brass kit
Best regards to all

I mainly use 45mm for the 7/8" scale but have also been experimenting with 63.5mm gauge with some 1" scale which is great as you can use all the Dolls House furniture and detail parts! I've kept up with Franck's Woolacombe seaside layout on the 7/8 Lounge Forums http://www.7-8ths.info/index.php. Some really wonderful detailing and weathering techniques to be found there that would apply in 7mm scale not just 7/8.
