Hello!

Yesterday I've got the first "Granite Stone Walls" from Hornby Lyddle End and I was a little disappointed. The colour is unusual but "repairable". But the breaks are very bad to conceal. Is there anyone who has an idea if there are some other makers of such stone walls for N-gauge or has someone produced own stone walls?

As second I'm looking for cars and lorries for my N-gauge layout but I only know Fleet-Line and Langley which produce only in white-metal.

And at least I'm searching for some links or information about traffic-signs in the time from 1945-1970?

It is very difficult here in Germany to get some information to build a British layout and so I want to try it on this way.
My first attempts could be seen in this years march issue of the Railway Modeller page 176:

Many thanks for all answers!

Hi Henning,

Firstly welcome to the forum.

Living as you do in the land of Noch, Faller and others you could look at some of the home grown walls they produce. Howver N road vehicles can be a bit (lot?) of a problem. Wiking do produce some which may be suitable for your project.

Road signage in the UK is a minefield but Tinysigns, distributed in the UK by GaugeMaster, do produce some.

Hope this is of some help.

Regards

Hi Henning,

As Britho says Gaugemaster Tiny Signs are probably your best bet for road signs. Here is the link http://www.gaugemaster.com/prod.asp?sid=10...77&style=#0

As regards vehicles have a look at Langley Models, Thamesmead (Gem Models) or BH Enterprises. Here are the links to their web sites.

http://www.langleymodels.co.uk/
http://www.gemmodelrailways.co.uk/
http://www.bhenterprises.freeserve.co.uk/

The quality of N Gauge vehicles does leave much to be desired at the moment but if you dig deep enough you can find some half decent ones.

Hope this helps.

Expat.

Hi Henning,
Your time period slightly overlaps the time when the International style of road signs replaced the traditional cast plate types, around 1963, I believe. Since main line steam finished in 1968, I would suggest sticking to the older traditional style. As mentioned, these are made by Tiny Signs.
There is a small range of N vehicle kits produced by Scale Link, though they tend to be of the older pattern, but certainly OK for use up to the early 1960s. Though whitemetal they are of a good quality, not solid blocks.
Regards,
Bernard
