You can now get 'ONE' stock from model shops, I noticed them in the Trafford Centre on Friday, they look very nice.

What guage is that, and how much do those Voyagers and stuff like that cost?


My grandad has a complicated layout set up in his loft, and hes got loads of trains, he built in carriage sidings to store them on, hes got raised bits, and automatic points switches, whole massive boards of them, which he made himself. I'm thinking of getting myself some sort of layout that will slide under the bed or something - I don't have much space!

If anyone has some pictures that'd be appreciated.

If anyone has a really good layout we could arrange a forum meet to see it? :?:

I used to be into modelling, and like the idea, but have no room for it.

All my layout is 00 scale, and the Voyagers are around £100.00. Mine was £82.00 (non-tilt) from www.ehattons.co.uk. The tilting one is around £98.00 as you get an extra car and it tilts (dur!).

Have yo seen my photos, mine is under my bed. I have a cabin be which used to have drawers under it, but when my Mum said I had to get rid of it, I said I'd move the drwers and stick the layout under the bed! :D ;)

I see... I don't have a bed like that, I used to though. I have a normal frame bed, double, with more than 30cms between it and the floor, I was thinking of getting a board and putting wheels on it and having it literally come out from under the bed when I wanted to use it. I'd say £100 is quite a bit to spend on a model train though!

I had the idea of wheel, but you need to make sure that your models can still stay upright (without getting flattened when put back under, I mean).

Yes, £100 is a bit expensive, but you have to admit, it does look GREAT!!!!, don't you think?? :D
(Anyway, I got it for Xmas, one of about 5 smaller presents! ;) , so that Xmas wasn't that dear! :P )

Cheers for your intrest,
