Hi all
So I'm back again, quick update as to everything before the railway developments.

We know live in Lymm and our house backs on to the Transpenine trail (shame the line is not there anymore).  I have researched brief bits of the line that ran here and primarily it transported salt from nearby mines in the area.  Along the transpenine trail former railway buildings have now been converted into homes.  Also our little boy has just turned 2 and loves playing with his brio trains and daddy's big trains in the loft. The other new addition a little girl is just over 9 weeks old now.

Currently I am only doing supply teaching and looking for a permanent teaching job so progress is virtually non existent on the railway due to lack of funds.

So the area I have to play in is below and I'll put up another post of what's happened so far.  The layout has a heritage line on the inner loop.  Then a more modern station will run around the outside allowing me to run more modern stock.

I have lots of videos which I upload to twitter but not many photos but I will take more the next time I get chance.
Hopefully you have an insight now into the new project

Hi Colin,

Looks to be a good use of the available space.

Hi all, belated happy new year.

A small update as to how things are going.  Railway progress is slow but there is progress being made.  Recently I have purchased some ews coal wagons and a Lima class 31 with some coaches. That's my first Lima purchase and I have been really impressed by it so far.


So below is the farm in situation.





Next two photos show the development of this area with gravel going down in the farm, workers garden and the start of a campsite in the distance.  I have more gravel ready for when I get chance to finish this area off then it will be a case of adding the smaller details.

So I wasn't particularly happy with this side of the layout, it didn't really fit a purpose. There was lots going to no really effect.
This is before



Now I have just the two lines which has allowed me a station with platforms either side. A goods yard is now in location which may be altered slightly. Removing the row of shops opens up the outside line and will allow me to a small street scene with the shops in the top corner on a second tier.



The final picture is the station area now which needs to be sorted

Managed a weekend to myself which gave me chance to do a bit to the railway
Reddish lane farm now has a complete front garden. And the farmer has splashed out on a new Range Rover




Next is some workers in a small warehouse going about their day



An overview of Lymm station entrance and a shot of a new diesel to the layout.  I did manage to create a second scenic layout but I didn't take any photos of this.

Snap Max !  That station building is indeed, very nice Colin - it rather "jumps out" at you.  What is it - Metcalfe ?

The station building is the Hornby Butterly station model, I have the lean to and other bits on another platform too.

Wow - I wouldn't have guessed that.  I don't usually rate Hornby very highly nowadays but that station building does look really good.
