I'm looking for inspiration, having got an Atlas turntable I'm contemplating building a small roundhouse, about 6 to 8 or 9 stalls. If all else fails I'll make some side walls similar to Metcalfe or Scalescenes sheds and make back and front walls to match the style (same windows etc) somehow though I don't see tapered gables working so a flat roof would probably have to do with some sort of raised vents, and skylights. Plans for any number of stalls would be a help, I'd just need to use a segment of a large one.

One thought would be for two separate sheds off the one T/T as the layout runs both Southern and LMS (Somerset & Dorset) stock so maybe a 6 stall and a 3 stall?

Probably a project for the plotter cutter and some - lots? - of etched windows.

G'day Mike,

Although not a plan, John Dew's 'Granby GWR 1947' layout has a great looking roundhouse that may inspire/help you out. John has kit-bashed the Scalescenes kit into quite a nice roundhouse.

See here : http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=5500&forum_id=21&page=41 Detail pics start at post 808.

Cheers, Gary.

That's where I'd point you, too, however......

Send me an e-mail address and I'll send you something interesting..........If you do the JD method/style for one company this might make the difference.

Thanks for that Gary and  also John for the original posts in the GranbyIII thread.

It's definitely looking like a cutter plotter project, the walls are much as I envisaged, but I'm  not sure if I'll attack the roof that same way though, and somehow  the brickwork gable ends  in front of a flat roof don't look quite right to me. I'm starting to think definitely on the lines of flat roof although some form of lights and vents are obviously required; time to search through some photo galleries and books methinks, look out Google here I come!

I have just picked up a Jouef trainset which has a turntable and two inspection pits as a base to a roundhouse engine shed, Aarons post about using scalescenes north light engine shed as a base to a scratch build is truly brilliant, let the building commence, well at least the planning.
