Earlier in the year Pete Towns, who owns Login Station decided to destruct the old shed at the end of Login platform and replace it with a new timber building to house the collection of Cardi-Bach memorabilia.
He suggested that it might be a good plan to house our Cardi-Bach layouts in the building as well. In view of this the Society stumped up £1800 towards the cost.
This is the shed in its early stage:



Timber framed and clad, with a timber floor on suitable formers on top of a concrete base.
Society members then gave a hand to paint the outside (5 coats), insulate the inside with 50mm urethane panels, cover the internal walls with 4mm ply, paint it all, then carpet it with carpet tiles.
The plan was to get it ready for the annual Login show on July 7/8th.

Access steps and a disabled ramp were added:




The layouts which were stored in my garage were loaded into the chairmans van and taken down to Login:




and set up inside their new home:





It was all a rush job, but we managed to get Cardigan/Boncath/Crymmych arms up and working, and Kilgerran as a static display in time for the show. A lot of the artifacts and pictures had to remain in the former wagon/museum as we ran out of time.

More details and pics in the next post.

Shaun.

A well deserved permanent set up for those wonderful layouts.... and it will be so much better once you get the memorabilia in there too.
Bravo.

Thanks for comments!
Barry - it's 14'x30', from Malvern Timber. They delivered and erected it, for I believe £6000.
This is them putting it up (truncated pic due to telephoto):




This is Pete applying the first coat. Notice the old platform and edging bricks to the left of the picture:




and as for team work, heres Pat and Colin laying the carpet tiles:




Carpet tiles come from an outfit that recycles industrial/office carpets and tiles fro charity. £150 bought enough for the 14 x 30 floor with 20 tiles spare.
The Celotex insulation came from a chap in Cardigan who gets second hand panels from Manchester. 4 x 8 equivalent for £10.

The 'shed' now has an overhead projector for Cardi-Bach presentations, with a drop down screen at one end. A reception desk inside the door with a built in fridge for beverages( :cheers) and a four camera CCTV security system.
The static layout of Login has now been moved in, and as there is no room for any more large models of Cardi-Bach stations, I made Glogue and Llanfyrnach as small N guage display models:
This is Llanfyrnach-




And this is Glogue, with water tanks at each end of the platform:





Photos of the originals can be found on the 'Disused Stations' website.

Any more questions, please feel free to ask.

Shaun.
