Si - please PM me re: Grandtline in the UK. My old computy will no longer work with someone who has not previously sent me a PM (it will reply but won't initiate a new PM).
Just send a message "Grandtline" so I can pass on some useful info.
Dave the postman was a little later than usual this morning.
Musta had a blinder, Friday night, by the looks of things.
RAVE ON DAVE !
Today Dave brought me half a dozen double-glazing brochures...
...& one-hundred 10A scalpel blades.
Once I've finished reading how I need 'surgicaly clean' plastic-windows, SIX TIMES OVER ! (thats just TODAYS brochures !)...
...I can commit ritual-suicide using my new 'surgicaly clean' 10As; If I can't take the double-glazing onslaught any more !

Thanks for your message; I can't wait to hear your information about windows !!
I did check out my Grandt Line stash today.
Not much of a hoard ! I thought there were more.
Seems like I only have these 4.
Grandt Line #3721 - 36"x70" Window Double Hung 8 Pane.
These 1/4" scale windows, look pretty OK for 1:35.
Bit fancy for an enginehouse...
...gonna have to dream up a new building, to use these in.
As Woodie says :-
" Good enough for Government work."
Just ordered ANOTHER Tamiya 'brick wall set'...
...that makes 3 now !
The 1st was the best bit of injection-moulding I have EVER seen ! (realy).
The 2nd was so 'out of register', flash is not the term; disaster is !
It could be possible to get the parts to fit, maybe; but I think 'the joins' would show...
...it may have to go back to the seller; took a gamble on a 3rd from another seller...
...we'll see how it works out.

The Mysterious Moose Mountain drafting-dept. have started working on pen & ink elevations, for the enginehouse.
Door clearance for the Shay & Porter were the first issue to come up.
The 2 locos will be 'up-scaled' from 1/4" to 1:35n2 scale.
The cab height will be raised; so Wolfgang doesn't bash his bonce any more !
Took some measurements; & came up with a 'loading-gauge' for the railroad.
Thought about doing a cardboard mock-up, of the extended cab roofs...
...but them thought, Arh ! ... LEGO ! (one of my favorite modelling tools !).
So, here are my Shay & Porter cab-extensions; for now at least !
