Thanks all!

I have been hunting down WW1 railroad equipment for months. John got me in contact with Adrian at Wrightlines and I was able to acquire most of what was left in inventory.
11 Wagons, 2 locomotives and 36 figures.
I then posted these pictures on Facebook and I was able to trade for 3 more wagons. I now have all the RR equipment I will need to finish the layout.





Watch for some new Wagons to show up.

A tease of what some of the motor transport that will connect to the RR will look like.



It will go in for details and weathering soon.

Nice going on the RR equipment. Just remember no smoking at night, those Jerrys can see a match from 2 miles away.

Hi Larry, nice van, your layout is looking very nice. I hope the pictures may help. Send me your address to my home account and I will send you some more pictures and a program from the Apedale show






I found out that the 1:43 tanks were mage by Cobi you may be able to find some on Ebay some have motors and can move! There are others in 1:35 scale Meng MKV male tank. have a look at National Tank Museum site at Bovington Dorset Uk.

Wow! I've just discovered this thread, Larry, after getting back to the forum after being away for awhile.
It's so great to see you re-creating history in the most amazing fashion.
The modelling is superb! [:-thumbu][:-thumbu]

Hi Larry
That little lot should keep you busy for a while. You have cleaned him out now and due to his health cannot do anymore castings.
I have just found out that the Tank Museum at Bovington have a number of working WW1 tanks now, all original so I might pop over one day and have a look. Also I intend to visit a place call Stow Maries in Essex the next time I am up visiting my daughter, it is a replica WW1 airfield and they have a number of replica flying aircraft from that period. Details of the airfield are on the web, just put in Stow Maries and it should take you to the site.

You've made great progress since I last checked. Glad to hear you've found all the rail equipment you need.
