Hi Gary,

Superb, the scenics really add the final touches. Very realistic.

Cheers

Toto

Thankyou Toto, more scenics to come. I still have to put the little details around the layout yet, like barrels, trolleys, yard crane, perhaps another loading ramp/platform.... 

Alan, thankyou and I guess being a small layout, the scenics can be done reasonably quickly, although I haven't done a lot this week.

Max, thankyou, I must say now the glue has dried, it looks a lot better ! I have taken a few more pics from the phone as it is better than my camera, which I'll post another time.

I have recently been pondering names for this layout, but I have to decide on something as I would like to produce some station name boards.

I have put a few descriptive names through a free online anagram program and this is a few I have given consideration to;

Timinnel Park - from Termini Plank

Klinnup Stream - from Terminus Plank

Blintarm Reach - Branch Terminal

Trimalen Branch - Branch Terminus

Linden Foe - End Of Line

Blinn Reach - from Branch Line

Strode Rhea - Three Roads

Now to make a decision ?? :hmm  What is your choice ?? :hmm

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Gary,

Linden Foe sounds the biz. It has a bit of a Scottish ring to it . Three roads also sounds good.

Cheers

Toto

Gets my vote too Gary, but I'd change Foe to Ford.

The river could be off scene, or you could create a dried-up stream bed somewhere.

Just sounds right after looking at the pictures.

Tremallen Branch Gary. It sounds Welsh or Cornish. If Welsh would bring in other Companies as well as the God's Wonderful.

Cheers for the encouragement for Linden Foe. I do like the ring Ed has put on it as 'Linden Ford'.

Mick, you're right about your choice and it has a valid reason as well. I have an eclectic mix of old stock from LMS, GWR, LNER and ofcourse SR, that can be used on this layout.

Looking at various pics and maps on the net, the area around the East Somerset Railway has very similar landscape to what I have modelled, Also just up the road from the railway is a pub called 'The Strode Arms', so Strode Rhea could also be a winner. Strode Rhea was my next choice and again, it has that Scottish ring to it... Maybe I should be modelling the LMS ;-).

Hmmm, I'm sure the LMS loaned rollingstock to the S&DJR and I can also run Southern stock on the layout to boot ! Maybe a 7F could be on the cards too... (cheers Toto :mrgreen:)...

Max, I like that! Another anagram for End Of Line is, 'Olden Fine'..., but I ain't quite there yet !!  :lol::lol:

Cheers, Gary.

If you choose the wartime era Gary you could run what you like as things got shoved about all over the place, or even a preserved line. That would really allow you to run anything. Guest locos etc.

Excellent work Gary. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

You could take a real name and change it slightly.  How about changing Waterloo to Garyloo? :mutley

"How about changing Waterloo to Garyloo?"

Sorry, thought you meant change at Waterloo for Garyloo. Is that on the Southern Region line? :hmm

Well it's been well over a week now and I haven't too much to report on. But I will say that I chose the name "Linden Ford", for the plank. I'd like to thank Ed for the name change from Linden Foe to Linden Ford, it really has a nice ring to it. 

                                                                     Cheers Ed ! :pathead

The next step was to make up some station name boards. After googling at a few pics, I came away thinking that these can not be too hard to make up.

So, the materials...

2 x 5mm x 28mm pieces of 0.5mm styrene sheet for the name board,  4 x 28mm lengths of 0.4 x 0.5mm styrene strip for the name board surrounds, 4 x 28mm lengths of 1.0 x 1.5mm styrene strip for the posts and two printed names. These were just printed out in MS Word, white on black and sprayed with matt finishing sealer.

The 0.4 x 0.5mm strip was glued to the outer edges of the back board. The name was cut down to a 4mm strip and glued to the back board with Zappa Gap. On a flat surface, the post were pushed up against the name board and glued into position using a little Rocket Max (10-20sec hold). The tops just need trimming up to the same height. The next step is to give them a paint to match the station building and fences, then insert into platform surface.



There is a spot on the left of the sign where the Rocket Max has marked the sign. This should be an easy fix with a felt tip pen, ofcourse after painting the sign frame.

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Gary,

........ And so Linden Ford was born.......:mutley. I like the name myself. Let's see a snap of the sign in place with a loco drawing up to the platform.

Good stuff

Thanks Gary, I'm flattered :oops:

Just shows how good this forum is, I gave you an idea for a name change and you've already given me the idea of a small station/halt on my track plan, even though we live about 10,000 miles apart.

I'm with Toto, looking forward to a picture of a train pulling up past the station sign.


Ed

Hi Toto and Ed,

Thankyou, but that photo may be some time off just at the moment as my order of Peco fencing, gates and buffers, Dapol people, Model Scene cattle, sheep and lambs, and Wills yard crane arrived today from Hattons. I guess this weekend I'll be busy putting some of those extra touches in place to nearly complete this plank.

As for 10,000 miles apart Ed, that's very true, but atleast we can chat, conjure, convince, clap and conclude only moments away in time. That is one good thing about this club, even though we are all in different time zones, an answer is never far away !

Cheers, Gary.
