Thank you for letting me join the forum. Model railways has been a life time hobby since I was given a Hornby Dublo 3-rail train set for Christmas when I was 10 years old back in 1963. I've only been able to start building a 'proper' layout in the last 10 years, albeit slowly and in fits and starts, but a recent prostate cancer operation has made me realise I need to get a move on!
I'm building an L-shaped fiddle yard to branch line terminus layout, loosely based on a fictitious town in the Evesham/Tewkesbury area in the late 40s/early 50s - LMS with a separate GWR branch. While recovering from my operation, I've been catching up on building some of the kits I've been stockpiling over years - very therapeutic, I should add!  ;-)  I stumbled across YMRC when googling for information about the Superquick Elizabethan cottage and found the article by Gordon Curtis in February 2018 really helpful - I can't believe my good fortune in finding it as I bought the pre 80s version many years ago and have only just got round to building it....and during the intervening years the assembly instructions and glazing strip had disappeared, which is why Gordon’s article was so helpful!

Hello Phil and welcome to YMRC, where you can usually find answers and information, but always receive a cheery welcome from like minded modellers.

You're in my old stamping ground of Southampton and I remember seeing a fabulous Totton layout at the SMRC Eastleigh exhibition in January.

I sincerely hope your recovery continues and that you get plenty of railyway therapy to help you along the way.

Best,

Bill

Thanks John - wow, guess where we were in September! Rocky Mountaineer from Jasper to Vancouver - you'd need a very big layout to include one of those freight trains we passed......unbelievable!
Glad you like the LMS/GWR blend - I've got the Bob Essery book about the Barnt Green to Ashchurch via Redditch branch which is where I got the inspiration. Thanks

Thanks Bill, yes I must confess I was assembling the Superquick Elizabethan cottage on a lap tray while watching Line of Duty on Sunday night!!!!! Greetings from Totton, I'm originally from Croydon but have lived in Southampton since 1989......and wouldn't go back!  :) Thanks for your kind words, the recovery is going well so far!

Thanks Matt, yes I've done a separate post to Gordon as I'm very grateful for his original article - you couldn't make it up! I'm now working on the low-relief terraced cottages, I'll have a browse to see if he's done those!

Hello Phil from a West London based Bob Essery fan.  I met him at a show a few years ago and he's one of the nicest guys you can hope to speak to - very humble.  I model BR(NE) Region but his books on Operation are a real must - written from a railwayman's point of view.

I often spend time on the IOW so on a good day can probably see Soton.

Barry

Thanks Brian - my wife's maiden name is Webb so I had to buy that one didn't I......and Cheltenham is the right area!?!?!? I should add that her parents were from Truro and Perranporth was a popular childhood holiday destination!  ;-)

I came here as a child and thats why i moved here donkeys years ago.

Truro has probably changed a bit since your wife was there. Like most places lots of building.

Thank you very much Phil, pleased to help – and a warm welcome to the club!

Your layout is looking good. I've not actually got round to building one yet, but I have put together a few buildings!

I hope your health continues to improve.

Very best wishes

Gordon
