Grimethorpe was an N gauge layout that was built in a spare bedroom using Kato track and largely Farish locos. There were also some minitrix and kato locos and rolling stock. The layout consisted of an 8 x 4 foot oval with a dividing backscene, with the town of Grimethorpe on one side and a country through station on the other. Sadly Grimethorpe had to be dismantled when I moved house and thus was never completed. At that point I decided to change to 00 scale, however, all the track and stock is now with my son-in-law, who is constructing a layout in his attic. I am encouraging him to join the forum. So in memory of Grimethorpe some pictutres showing how far I got with the project:

The town side:

Some quality work went into that. I particularly like the first photo. A shame it's gone, but it gave you some good experience.

" I am encouraging him to join the forum. "
I think Bob's offering a Christmas bonus for anyone who recruits a new member. Might be best to check, though.
:D

Whilst clearing out some old files on my computer I found these early shots of Grimethorpe. They were taken before much of the scenery detail was added and before I installed the semaphore signals on the country section of the layout. I post them for interest:

Lovely pictures, Novice :D Let's hope that N scale stuff re-emerges :!:
By the way, is that EZ Track or something similar :?:

Thanks. The track is Kato N scale and I'm sure it will make a reappearance in another guise sometime in the future.
