Rich,
Thank you! Are the kit you have Wrightlines Kits? If so I would be interested in trading more North American looking proto types for them.

Thanks to everyone else for checking in on me.

My next dilemma is making these screw pickets to use with barbed wire.



Testing wire sizes in a jig I made.




I have found pictures of the pickets with 2, 3 and 4 wire loops. I will make Jigs for each.

Frank,
I hope this ends up being a show layout. There will be a road on the layout and a transfer siding. I hope to be able to swap out vehicles and details during the show so if people come back for a second look they have something different to see.
I also hope to have a place to display slide shows or video on the topic to explain what people are seeing.
It all sounds ambitious at this point but I hope to finish by the NNGC in Hickory.

Hi Larry
You may have seen the attached model figures, the pictures were taken last Saturday at the 7mm Narrow Gauge AGM show at Burton On Trent UK.



















I will also be going to the Tracks to the Trenches event more details http://www.avlr.org.uk/event/tracks-to-the-trenches-iii
The event has several new things this year the main one this year is a Hunslet 4-6-0 that should be making its first outing in England. (it should be in Wales this coming weekend) a Baldwin 4-6-0 should also be at the event.

I hope this is of help

Neil you are my hero!
Thanks for the pictures.
I placed a large order with PLM (75 plus figures) in December. I'm still waiting for the order to be filled. I hope to get it soon. I may be asking you for a large favor when you go to the show, like sending you money and a list of stuff to buy. I would be willing to do something for you in return.

Hi Larry, I spoke with Philip at Burton, he has just moved to a new shop unit, and all the moulds are still mixed up awaiting to go onto new shelf's so he can start casting again. So that may be your delay. If you want some pictures I have some from the last couple of shows at Apedale, I also have some from other UK WW1 layouts.

Neil,
I would enjoy more pictures. I sent you a private message with my email address to make the process easier on you. I was seriously considering flying over to go to the Tracks to the trenches show. Unfortunately I cant pull it off this year.

That's a simple but effective jig! I am amazed that there is an event dedicated to trains at the front in WWI. Talk about a narrow focus.
Cheers,
Dave

I made close to 100 Screw Pickets last weekend. I need to paint them before posting a picture.

Acquiring rolling stock continues to be a challenge but not impossible.

I have now acquired all the kits I need to complete the following train.




The locomotive is a Stuart Kerr and the kit I found is from S&D models.

The three cars will be made from Wrightlines Kits.

To do this correctly I will need to learn a new skill (Soldering white metal with low temp solder). Feel free to chime in if you have experience with this aspect of the hobby. Thanks for looking.

The one time I touched a soldering iron to white metal I ended up with a puddle of white metal.


So don't ask me for pointers.....
