Hello all,

Nice to see that there's a section devoted to micro layouts

I haven't posted on the forum since 2014 another of my pastimes getting in the way. I did start another board though and made some track and took it to Weston-on-Trent show last November where it ran very well.

All my layouts start with 'M' so I looked for a simple name in Lincs and came up with Maltby just to the south of Louth. I bought an Alan Godfrey map from 1897 and on there I see that Maltby has got a spring hence The Maltby Mineral Water Co and then not far away is Bully Hill hence The Bully Hill Beef Co. Gives me the reason to run some cattle wagons and some vans as well as the usual coal wagons.



Over the last few days I've been pushing in some track spikes around the point and the Barry Slip.

More soon

Cheers - Jim

Hello Sparky,


The wagon is a Glasgow and South Western Railway one I made in the 80's, it's got a card body and the axle boxes and stuff were from CCW Models. Their factory was not far from where we lived at the time in Birmingham.


Cheers - Jim

During the war we moved to  Maltby to live with my mum's mum to get away from Goering where I got stuck in the strictly out of bounds crags just below the school  that isn't there any more with three much older lads. They each got six of the very best, I only got three and bawled louder than they did  and my mum on seeing the marks when I got into the tin bath that same evening  gave me another three with her mums leather slipper to even things up !

Then shortly after that we went back to London and I've hated Maltby, the crags, that old headmaster, his cane and my old gran's slipper ever since.

But I like your layout all the same !

Allan.

Hello Allan,

Interesting story I missed the start of the war but a lad in our road who was older than me was evacuated to the Forest of Dean and loved it. I Googled Maltby Crags and found it was just by Rotherham sounds like out of the frying pan into the fire! Apparently the Crags are an SSSSI and aka Wood Lea Common.

Thanks for the nice comment about my humble effort.

Cheers - Jim

Hello all,

I'd started with what I was doing at the moment bit stupid that :-)

I doodle trackplans on bits of paper until I get something I like, then I try to work out train movements in my head, when I get to the stage (it doesn't take me that long being a bit dim) where I cannot see an end to the movements I know I'm onto something that will be interesting to operate. I like operating and shunting quite a lot, I'm still very pleased at the smooth slow running without stalling and being able to move an 0-4-0 loco 1/2 mm first time everytime.



Anyway this is the trackplan redrawn yesterday to incorporate the 154 Sonnet Company, I'd looked again at the map I bought and found that Maltby is 154 ft above sea level, so Googled 154 and found that Shakespeare wrote 154 Sonnets.

Cheers - Jim
