The sinple answer is - yes and with room to spare.


So, just what can you get on a 6'x6" x 2'x 9" Wicks flush door ?

Well it might surprise you but you will need a fiddle yard/cassette either one or both ends and, without to many headaches I managed a fair sized station, engine shed, goods shed, signal box, coal yard with weighbridge and office, derelict plate layers hut and village high street.


The first thing you'll probably want to know is what can you do with it ? Well, to be quite honest, not a lot though shunting stock could be quite interesting if not a challenge.


Anyway, here are a few pics.

Stunning Allan, another example of your genius and you didn't even have to slip me a tenner.

Now, my question is - operational?  Where are the wagons and locos?

There's a layout on RMWeb called Trebudoc that's on a 9' long footprint including sector plate.

Cheers

John

Only because your fees for Bxxxxxxt have gone up !


Ah. Does it work you ask. Well nope at the mo as without a fiddle yard there wouldn't be much point but - I do have a loco, a Dapol Terrier, and two Dapol wagons but what I really want is an auto/push pull coach - any ideas John ?


When Chris Nevard comes up in April to photograph it for MR he's going to bring up more wagons and stuff - if I had half your skills John I'd scratch build them.


BTW, isn't uploading pictures a doddle these days. Well done Boss, nice job.

In all seriousness, wonderful work as always

If we'd been closer I would have put my hand up to help with wiring.  I guess you'll just have to get on with making fiddle yard.

As for auto coach, Dapol have one imminent:

Lionheart have a 45XX:  http://www.lionhearttrains.com/

Lionheart also have B sets in various liveries.  There are pictures on Tower Models website.

Always enjoy seeing Chris' work, looking forward to the article.

I have to agree that posting pictures here is a doddle.  For other forums, I have to transfer to Photobucket (a terrible pain in the a**) and copy and post a link - a load of faff.

Superb Allan,
You make it look so simple but I am sure it's not.

Hi Allan,

Very nice. I like the cobblestones and grass. Neat touch. You could also do something different and retrofit a window in a clerestory or suburban brake third to get a trailer. Should be just up your street. Latter would be more applicable for 1930's and post WW2 running.

Nigel

It all looks tremendous Allan and I'm amazed at the detail you have incorporated.

Hi Allan

Touche

I'm afraid you've ruined a perfectly good representation of a country station with quite the most hideous bright green grass I've ever seen.  No self respecting permananet way gang would have let a station yard get in that condition either. :lol:

Nice buildings and trackwork though :thumbs

ps; first bit said with tounge firmly in cheek :cool wink
