Hey to each their own. I know someone who has used the Heljan roundhouse Kit rather than the tidmouth sheds kit, simply because A) it's cheaper, and B) it looks more lifelike. And the Knapford station kit is shocking. Personally I will be using standard Hornby platforms (or the Bachmann Great Central platforms, haven't decided yet) and the Peco over roof kits. Far better looking in my mind.

UPTODAY has bought another Sheds Kit instead of Tidmouth Sheds. He has told me about it other the Threads and by sending me a Personal Message many times and keeping me updated with new changes and progress he has made.

In what way is Bachmann Tidmouth Sheds shocking, Titanic5972?

That's just my own opinion. They look far too toylike to me. The same with Knapford Station.

In what way do Bachmann Tidmouth Sheds and Knapford Station look toy-like? They don't look like toys too me.

Like I said, just my own opinion. I'm not telling anyone how they should feel towards them. Knapford station is completely wrong for a start. Meant to be 2 tracks between each platform and only 1 fits with Bachmanns model. The colours on both the station and sheds are far too vibrant and bright. Should be a lot duller and subdued.

I agree actually. There are supposed to be two tracks between each platform at Knapford Station. With the Bachmann Knapford Station having bright colours, Bachmann may have done this too make it look better and to give more appeal of it too the public to get people to buy it.

You do not own Percy or James yet?

Have you already got any Red Mail Coaches?

You should get the Cargo Cars / Trucks. I have x3 and they are nice.

The Brake Van is nice as well. Good! No Purple Brake Van's! This joke is never going to get old, is it with you Steve (UPTODAY)?!
