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:

I have already sympathised with the sad passing of this layout but I will repeat those sentiments for the benifit of those amongst us who did not have the pleasure of knowing it.. Now pass the collection tray!!

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.
