What sort of printed items would you like me to take a look at producing?

All suggestions and ideas will be considered...so over to you all!
Please can you do class 158 DMU and class 101 DMU if poss? :P

In the meantime, here's a hot off the press....well printer:

Hi
Could extend the range by having a various types of warehouses /factorys/cars modern and pre war/Double decker buses as only single heights being done/container wagon loads in the 40ft and 45ft long.......in the rolling stock class 37 /class 47 / class 20 / class 33....mk2 and mk4 coaches for the 80's and modern layouts.
Extended range in the railway scenes such as pre and post war railway station building types/engine sheds/stairs and esculators.

With Kind Regards
Graham

I've just added a couple of new items to the Talking T Gauge Shop.....a 102 tonne bogie tanker, and a church. Both of these were suggested by Nutter.

Needs some tweaks and some detail adding...but not far off!

Looking good!

With the all freight stock that is becoming available now it is getting easier and easier to plan a T gauge layout with long trains, but still dwarfed by the scenery. Although may still need to hide so extra power chassis under some wagon bodies - not sure what the haulage capacity of the current power chassis is.

I'm intending to put together a rake of half a dozen of both these cement wagons and the gas tankers to see how they run on The Bridge in a week or so when it's at Crich. My wagons are printed solid so as to try and give then sufficient weight to run without bouncing off the rails...and not too heavy so they produce too much drag....something I think is a fine balance!

Doug, just had the old brain working again and wondered how the road tankers were coming on?
Been looking at bo bo locos and was thinking 19m chassis under a class 67 body shell, brings everything into 21st century.

In the pre-storm calm...or should I say the pre-show wait, I've been taking a look at things I've started but not finished! :oops:

And I've found three things ready to put in the shop:

Left to right......a Routemaster RM, a Routemaster RML, and a road tanker.

I also have the Class 170 "Turbostar" DMU shell set...an early version of the set shown here with a transfer applied Scotrail livery, but the shop version will have a downloadable generic transfer pattern that can be changed to your favourite livery :

I'm quite pleased with the quality I've been able to get on these buses...you can even see details on the platform!

Hopefully more to follow shortly.

In response to a query from a forum member, I've just added some new platform sections to the existing range in the shop....a complimentary range of platform section designed to be used with flexitrack.

The existing set of platform sections were designed to be used with the sectional track sections. The range now has alternative sections that are designed to be used with flexitrack, and correct spacing can be achieved by using the track spacers that have been available for some time.

re-railer?

Post by chadnn »

Has anyone come up with an in track re-railer for flex track? Maybe have it look like a level crossing like other scales do.

I don't think anyone has. I've certainly not seen one....and never really had a need for one either. If you have a design for one that works, do let me know and I'll take a look at producing it.

Hi Doug

Would it be possible to do modern double decker buses as well?

Do you have any particular make & model in mind? Or are you just looking for any modern style bus from the 1980s onwards???

Just another type from the 1980's onwards will do as I am recreating Bradford Interchange with set track when I have got time.

I've finally got the three DMU sets I've been working on available in the shop.

These are:
Two-car class 158 DMU set
Two-car class 170 DMU set
Additional carriage for class 170 DMU set
Five car class 180 DMU set.

All of these are supplied with a sample graphics file of a generic livery designed to allow you to make your own decals. These files are supplied in Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop file formats. Instruction on how to edit the files and create the decals are supplied.

Here's the reason I've been quiet on the forum over the past couple of weeks.


Bad news for wallets!!! Good news for members...... :) :) :) ;) ;) ;)

I've just completed a revamp and enhancement to the shop section that includes vehicles. All of the pictures are now somewhat clearer....although not perfect, they're much better!

I have expanded the range of both lorries and articulated lorries so that there is now a good range of permutations available....including three different sizes of tanker, and a cement mixer!

I have also added a set of 25 cars to the range.
