The following photographs, and there's quite a few believe me ! ,  are of a huge model railway that I never got to finish as the owner just lost interest.

Everything is just loose standing and was to be straightened up and permanantly based after all the trackworks was completed, up and running and ballasted - but it never materialised and this is about as far as it got.

Allan.

Now they've straightened up all on their own - so how did they do that ?!!!!

Anyway, and while I'm ahead, here's another six piccies - I hope...

I'll explain the clients terrible massively overscale choice of ballasting and even worse attempts at laying it - virtual pebble dash !!!!

Couldn't resist keeping you in suspense for a short while, sorry Allan. After inserting each picture in your post give two or three presses on the Return key, the one with the bent arrow and this will insert spaces before you bring in the next picture and so on after each picture.

 Hi Reg.

Well he laid all the track and put the wiring in and went DCC which caused a lot of problems and wouldn't work, so he just simply gave it up as a bad job, walked out, shut the door, and built an even bigger 00 layout in another room but this time using all RTR.

Anyway, I built all the buildings for that too, or at least as far as it went, and I don't think that layout got finished either.

It looked good though, even though neither of them worked and I doubt that they ever will !!!

But I'll tell you something - most of the epics I got involved with ended up like that, but I have to stress that in those cases, I only ever produced the buildings while the clients struggled to get the equivelant of Clapham Junction into the spare room down one side, and St Pancras down the other. !

You would never believe half the stuff I've seen in sheds, spare rooms, lofts - London to Edinburgh on an 8x4 sheet of unsupported chip board ceased to no longer suprise me !

Cheers.

Allan

That I do believe Allan having seen a local "modeller" try to fit a similar concept onto an 8x4  including a turntable with 6  engine tracks and wondered why things kept being derailed - using first radius & high speeds does not help with large long locos.

And the same "modeller" went from DC to DCC as the wiring was only "two wires", ripped all of his existing cab wiring out & wondered why the loco only went as far as the next rail/section breaks of DC days.

Takes all sorts I guess Ron, me included !

When I first started out, I sprayed a Flieschmann 2-10-0 in Great Western green, stuck some GWR motives all all over it and thinking that I had made a massive breakthrough in the modelling world, I photographed it and sent it to the RM !!

Like I said, it takes all sorts.

Cheers.

Allan.

That guy must have had  one hell of a lot of money Allan. :shock::shock::shock::shock:

The buildings are, of course, superb. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

I'll look through them again, then come back with questions about "how and what with" ..........................;-)
