Sorry, I’m a little taken by BR Blue! I’ve seen your dislike in other pages!! :mutley

I think it looks quite smart! Will be the first non passenger service at Teasel Bay. No idea when it’ll arrive given the current situation though, but one day I’ll get an exciting package!!

Chris, I fear I might be turning Blue too...!  I'm thinking of a 70s mainline with a few tourist steam trains to the the working quay and hotel.....  My layout is definitely a moveable feast
Nice engine - I hope you don't have to wait too long!

I originally started with steamers, but am quickly leaning towards an 80’s theme... Just by the locos I seem to want to buy! As you said, no problem with the steamers running some specials to the seaside!!

Today has been pretty quiet at Teasel Bay. The main movement of the day has been Farmer Jack and Farmer Ted moving sheep ready for the lambing season! Jill is trying to keep her distance while she enjoys her single single cycle of the day through the countryside.

Hi Chris,
Why not use your collection from steam to diesel to change eras occasionally?  I don't know if Dawlish ever had goods sidings so maybe not totally practical but the collection of cars, wagons, carriages etc could be changed over every now and then from steam to 80's diesel to keep the interest up...  then it won't matter how much your fingers slip!

My own long term plan (if ever I get there) is to have my layout represent 50's, 60's and 70's Canadian stuff that I can interchange without changing the actual layout much in itself. I'm sure I can imagine enough traffic flows etc to change the theme every now and then!

Cheers from Australia

Trevor

You mentioned Dawlish!... Our local model shop had a competition which is now postponed for obvious reasons... to build a model in an A4 file box.  



You can do anything, as long as it fits in the box! I thought I'd have a go at Dawlish during the storms. With the photo below for inspiration and with my rule I wasn't going to buy anything (other than a piece of track as I don't do concrete sleepers on Teasel)..



I wanted a bit of light, so I used a lamppost left over from Teasel's station and a led for a house light.  I connected them to the test push to make button/battery pack which was used to test the fairy lights I got at Christmas for Teasel's station. 

I then used my favourite foam and Scuplturemold mix to build up the roadway and the waves in the eroded section.



I then pained it all an earthy brown and then dry brushed different brown/black colours to build up the eroded/exposed soil.  The temptation to paint the seabed a non earth colour was hard but if you look at the photo its dirty brown with all the sediment.  I started dry brushing white to represent foam, I added even more white after the photo below.... 



Then came the fun bit, using woodland scenics water waves/ripples I built up layer after layer of the water/waves. For the track, since it was for such a short section, I cut the sleeper ties and separated each sleeper to the correct width and then disposed of numerous sleepers which had fallen off as waves hit them. I added an upright sleeper in the water for good measure! The sleepers were brushed with black weathering powder (more so in the next photo). I spray painted black some cardboard from an old cereal box and cut to match tarmac on the road and fallen into the water.



I then added white water, which is a mix of Noch snow and Water Ripples and brushed over the tops of the waves and the churn. It doesn't come out too well in photos but you can see layers of bubbled through the water effects.



That is as far as I have got, but with the competition postponed have lost a bit of motivation on it...

I plan to create a stencil and used a sponge to add some detail on the tarmac, build up a few little flats on the far edge, weather the track rails, build a little stone wall to separate the road/track and add some pipework under the road which is now exposed...

What do you think?

Clever idea Chris. Will you have a row of hard hatted, orange vested workers tight-rope walking the rails carrying ladders and tools, as I know a Wickham trolly would be just silly!

Bill?

I'm impressed!!!  Not that I could run a train on it! Well Done Mate!

I think you might have issues running trains on that...

Seriously, though, excellent idea, and I love the effect you are creating.

Gordon :-)

Agree, very cool and a great idea!  A great water effect too.

What a pity the competition has been cancelled Chris but not unexpected I guess.

It was an excellent idea to model Dawlish and you've created a brilliant scene of it.  Very impressive foam and the hanging rails are extremely realistic.

I'm sure you'll have learnt one heck of a lot about modelling water in the process - have you any thoughts about incorporating a storm on the "big layout" ? :lol:

Thanks all. You’d struggle to run anything in an A4 area, unless you drop the gauge or two!

Peter, Teasel Bay will be a tranquil scene... but I have had an idea of being able to add a stormy scene on top when required!

Chris - I would imagine that, with the main coastal line damaged by the storm, Teasel Bay might see a few trains that it would not have normally seen - diverted from somewhere perhaps??

Just a thought :hmm

haha. If anyone wants to divert their stock through Teasel Bay that would be fine by me! I couple of diverted HST's would look great!

Back on the mainline tonight...

Started adding layers of sand to the dunes. Going to need a few to give it a nice covering. While that was drying I experimented with some different natural coverings as well as drilling posts ready for a fence keeping any public playing on the dunes away from traffic!
