Hello there

I have just joined this forum and thinks it's fab. I have been working on a new layout to replace the Elm Park layout I recently dismantled in Bristol.

The garage layout is 10ft

Sorry about that glitch - back again. The garage is 10 ft x 17ft and incorporates an end to end run, terminus, yard, diesel depot & branch. Will try to explain over the coming weeks.

Seeing your first two photos, Craig, it's obvious that this will be a layout worth watching.

No pressure, but all we need is plenty of photos, with plenty of updates and plenty of explanations on the methods used.

 As I said, No pressure :cheers :thumbs:thumbs

Craig could you edit your pictures and put one under the other instead of side by side. That will mean we don't have to scroll sideways to see both pictures. Thanks.

Welcome Craig from another new boy

Really like the look of your layout, are you going to ballast the track or are you waiting to complete all extra work around the track first.

And it looks as if the West Country is a major player on this forum!

Hi many thanks for the encouragement so far. I'll upload some more pictures later. I will be ballasting, the points motors are in for Mount Charles station so I can add the signals & final touches soon. Just got so much to do...

Hi there, yes the two tracks will head off into hidden storage sidings under the main station. That's stage 2 as i have to complete all the electrics under the station first.

Hi Craig

Like the Industrial corner a lot, which metal fencing have you used, also did you build the factory's yourself or are they a kit, as they are very good.

Hi again, been doing some scenery to liven the layout up. The church & churchyard are taking shape. This is the first thing you see as you open the door so it gives an instant pleasant scene to look at.

Hi Alan & Pete,

Thanks for your comments. The Industrial estate is a mix match of scratchbuilt buildings & pikestuff parts. The fencing is ratio posts with a material I happened to find at a craft shop, like miniature stocking material in silver - perfect I thought for fencing! The accessories are from Kibri & recent shopping in California.

This is a really good looking layout, Craig. Love that very first photo you posted on page one in particular.

I'm going to need some mesh fencing on my New England layout. Thanks for the tip about it.

Thanks Mike, I think it may have been at Craftworld in the fabrics section. Not sure if they have branches in Brisbane! I've seen similar on plastic spools in fabric places. It may be different colours (Gold) but can be sprayed with primer to get a grey / silver colour.

Time just seems to fly by these days. Dont get a lot of it to myself... Did manage to concrete in the shed roads the other day. Here's a couple of pictures

31111 & 03382 alongside the admin buildings. Must get some weedkiller for the slabs! The buildings need moving back a shade.







47148 / 560 sit inside the maintenance shed. The drain cover is a bit too "proud" and needs sitting down a bit further.

Thanks guys. The 31 & 47 were weathered by the manufacturer. I like the look of road dirt up the sides. The church is an old hornby one repainted with acrylics then weathered with powders. I reglazed it with some excellent chequered pane glazing from Freeston Model Accessories 28 Newland Mill, Witney, Oxfordshire. 01993 775979.

They do allsorts of glazing sheets - check them out!

How did you do the weeds in the pavement if you dont mind me asking ? Im guessing you painted glue where you wanted weeds sprinkled then cleaned when glue dry ??? It looks very effective.

Hi John. The weeds were painstackingly applied! I used the edge of a knife with PVA on it and allowed it to fill the grooves (carefully). Then sprinkled flock over the top. I did give it all a gentle brushing when complete. I'd have liked a little less greenery really, but hopefully it'll blend in with time. I need a OO gauge hoe now! (Carefull with my spelling there I can tell you!!).:oops:

Thanks: The concrete is cardboard & ribbed plasticard sprayed with grey primer then painted with acrylics - cream & grey mixed together. Then a brushing over with weathering powders. I might go a bit stronger in the 4 foot (between the running rails) but find that a little is better. Too much muck and the illusion is ruined.

A bit "stark" - they'd blend in with the countryside more if they were a subtle shade of green don't you think ? :shock::shock:

Great looking photos Craig.

Heres the station approach. I've ballasted in some of the lineside which is a different colour & texture to the areas around the track. 47635 arrives with some empty stock from the carriage sidings. 37408 sits in the stabling spur.





Hiya - sorry it's a blue 47 but here's the station recently ballasted.

Hi chaps - thanks for the comments. The raised manhole covers are based on catchpits you see in platform areas. Just two layers of cardboard with a grille on top.

The buildings are partly scratch built / part kits. I hoard all sorts of windows / glazing & cardboard off cuts from Metcalf kits then do my own. I find the Muswell window range are fantastic for starters. The buildings are then planned from them.

The luggae trolleys came from a box of accessories from a Kibri Kit from memory. It was £18 well spent, had trolleys, pallets, skips etc in it. Model Masters at Weston SM have the full range.

Hi guys,

Muswell models can be found here

http://members.lycos.co.uk/muswellmodels/2mmhouses.htm

They have a fabulous range of 2mm & 4mm buildings, and do the windows as separate brass fittings. The building in this picture has muswell windows shown.



I'm surprised more people dont know about them - lets give them a shout. They're a pleasure to deal with too, very helpful and prompt service.

Yes Chris, 47560 is a pre weathered Bachmann delight. Looks well grubby just how I liked them in the 80's. (Like my women - oops)... The girder bridge is an Atlas one, you can find these in the Walthers catalogue. The joys of having a father who models USA - you can buy all the lovely accessories & customize them yourself.

Cheers for now CM :doublethumb

Been busy with the greenery... Here are some latest shots of Sandy Hill Low Level station:

Over head view of a Bachmann class 108



Bachmann 158 arrives at the Low Level station.



The ballasting is progressing well too - here's the cutting below Coronation Street

The hidden sidings area taking shape. The two tracks from the layout become a single lead and then swoop underneath Mount Charles station where there are 5 storage roads. There are also two short roads in front of the controllers for testing locos and putting out smaller trains to join the layout. DMU’s can sit here too.

 



 



 

& finally - a GREEN loco at last! I do have some you know! 40122 at Mount Charles: Least the carriage is a proper colour! ;-)

The first photo shows what a great and busy layout you are building, and I really like your idea for the storage/fiddle under the layout.

Looking good.

I have somehow missed the recent developments on your layout, so I have been back to the beginning and read through the whole lot. You have produced some excellent results, with loads of detail I really like it. One thing I did notice was the very effective paving with weeds growing through the cracks - great results.

Hi Craig,
I too had missed all of the October updates for some reason or other and must say the developments you have made on your layout are really looking the part.
Love the buildings in the background.
cheers

Hi there

Been busy with the ballasting The ballasting is 80% brown mixed with 20% white. Gives a nice blend. I paint the six foot & cess (beside the track) with 60% PVA & 40% water with a dash of washing up liquid, then next day infill the four foot (between the rails) with ballast then spot drop the entire area with 25% glue, rest water with washing up liquid.

47537 with a stopper. The shed can be seen in the background - rather heavily packed for a weekend with 37's



50035 waits departure with a stopper.




50035 with the Low Level station in the foreground.

Happy to oblige any blue tinted fellow modellers.

Here's a close up of the shed. Oh and a green visitor I'm sure Chris will approve of!!



The shed with a close up of EE (evil empire) type 3 invasion. ;-)

Craig - some very nice work in there indeed. Keep it up and keep us in the picture (literally!).

The double-decker approach is an interesting use of space and is something I looked at doing myself as an alternative to the single-level yard I eventually built.

It remains an option for any future rebuild or extension as I now have more experience (and hopefully more skill) in these things.

I note that there are sections of your layout with tracks rather close to the edge, including at pointwork, and I wonder if you have any problem with the occasional derailment causing anxious moments when gravity looks like taking a hand?

That is also something I thought of and most of my layout is "protected" by at least a 1" "wall" of MDF; those sections not yet so fitted soon will be as that includes the main fiddle yard entry at one end with numerous points; the last thing I would want is a loco taking a dive 3 feet to the concrete below and possibly taking its train with it.

Hi there from Gloomy Cornwall. An exiled Hayle person I wonder? I'll send a copy of the Cornishman over for you!!

Thanks for your comments. Er yes, I have had the odd "cat" moment - Ruby's now banned from chasing trains. I will put a strip up. The 37 on the low section was literally just put up so I will get round to it (along with the other essential jobs like scenery - wiring signals etc..)

Thanks I'll keep the photos posting.

Craig

Exiled from Newlyn and Hayle yes, by way of various other up-country locations through life as well.

Cornwall gloomy? Never. It's just that "liquid sunhsine" again :cool:

I have to say I like the shot of the green 50. If only the budget allowed ownership of more of those beasts out here! Possibly the best piece Hornby has yet made.

Now that is one proper Green loco and of course highly suitable!

Allow me to return the favour by showing Sir Edward in his natural habitat...

I wish we could get it through to Hornby that they did not always have that stripe!

Hiya - really enjoyed doing this - and tips learned from THIS forum - thanks so much.

Messy time on the layout. Multi - finish & plaster laid and a culvert installed.



 

The area is then painted with sanstone paint mixed with black powder paint to give a rock colour. The area then brushed with dried white powder paint to weather it.



Finally the grenery goes on to really bring it to life. A bachmann 108 also helps of course!

I do like that low-level halt. And the 108 is working harder than even on my branch line and I though that was steep!

Craig, I like your idea with the culvert. Looks great too! I just happen to have a spot that it would work super on in my layout. Been wondering what to do there.

Thanks,
Wayne

oh yeah - it's a monster. Try stopping at Low Level in the down direction. :It's a no no Almost an Alpine Rack job. Luckily it only sees light traffic - DMU's and short freights propelled with a brake van.

Adds to the fun. The culvert looks really good - will move the panel - that's a real carbuncle.

You're right Craig, that panel really has to go as it spoils the appearance of all your hard work.

Neat addition to the layout Craig,
The culvert fits in nicely.
Glad your stock can handle that incline, I'm close to modifying some of mine 'cause my stock struggle.

No more than it deserves Craig. You also happen to be the first in the larger size too. Maybe even bigger if I don't get reports of problems with the increase.

There you go Craig. The largest header picture we have ever had now at 600 wide and I must say it's a cracker.

Sorry Ron!

Please try this one:

http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate_url?doit=done&tt=url&intl=1&fr=bf-home&trurl=http%3A%2F%2Fde.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2F%25C3%2596BB_297&lp=de_en&btnTrUrl=Translate

Its a machine translation so maybe a bit difficult to read unforunately.

Thomas

It's interesting to see these "machine" translations and sometimes, they can cause a laugh !!

With Thomas's site, both translations are virtually "word for word" and, in German, the verb comes at the end of the sentence.  The translator has obviously gone through it word for word, leaving the verb at the end which makes strange reading for English speakers.

A local restaurant here in France, had a New Years Eve "bash" last year and, being somewhat go-ahead, decided to do a computer translation for the English population.  The words it didn't know were left in French and others were translated "by the book".

The notice spoke about a "Feet of Saint Silvester" - that's a "Fete de St. Silvestre" (St Silvestre being the french New Years Eve)

Starters offered a "warmed goats cheese salad" which translated as "Goat in it's heat" !!!

On the menu was also (in french) "Piece de boucher" - roughly - the butchers choice or "meat of the day".  The translation offered a "piece of the butcher" !!!:roll::roll::roll:

I wish I'd copied the menu because we were all rolling on the floor at the translations.

Thanks guys. I used dark grey weathering poweders mixed with black powder paint this time. Apply dry to a matt varnished loco and the results are quite good. Extra muck around the exhausts & fans of course. I paint around the cab windows separately to give the wipers a look of sweeping.

great job Craig, i finish mine off with pastels. the plough on the 37 could do with the treatment, most of the pictures i have seen show the plough rusted and dirty. i use a cocktail stick on the windows to remove paint leaving the dirt around the edge. i can't quite crack that bit so would be interested on your thoughts about the cab windows.

Hi Matt. You're right the ploughs need extra treatment. I'm not happy with the yellow hub caps either - they would be invisible on a loco this filthy! I simply paint on matt varnish from a small brush around the swept area on the windscreen. No real science I'm afraid. It's great fun on a two wipered Deltic though!

Hello again - Happy New Year! Had an early scare when fotopic crashed and all my images disappeared. Luckily it's up & running again. Phew!

After the festive break, I'm back on the scenery around the back of the shed & the yard area. here's some progress.

 

47591 in the yard area. The area to the rear of the wagons will be built uo over the coming weeks.



31174 on the crane road at the back of the shed. Does anyone know of a good model lifting crane for this era?

The dark evenings and time in the signalbox combined with my love of The Bill spurred me on to make my own “Larkmead Estate” for the layout. The drab flats are a fitting back drop to Sandy Hill Depot – similar to Finsbury Park years ago. All I need are Coppers bashing a door in on a dawn raid, and I’m done. The windows are from Muswell Models and the curtains are pictures cut from a Tescos direct book. The rest is scratch built from cardboard, brick paper & cladding.

Here are the floors and flat sections taking shape


Here are the windows from  Muswell Windows. Tip - cut the glazing wider then the frames then they can be glued stright into the window aperture.  


The first look at the building taking shape


A finally - the building in context with Sandy Hill MPD. It will be set back more - so this is just for image.


Great fun to build - unique & cheap. The windows are the only specialist parts required - the rest is cardboard, brick paper and cladding.

Good stuff Craig, it does look like the Larkmead. I see that Tony Stamp has already visited the 3rd floor, far left flat and used his "persuader" on the frame whilst gaining entry :exclam:exclam :lol::lol::lol:

Greetings from Bristol (Wisconsin) SDJR -USA

     I am enchanted by your model of the "Dreary Hotel."  Is that model from a real building or is it your creation.  
     It looks like your track plan offers some interesting operational and scheduling opportunities.  Have you develop any timetables yet.  I tend to move from sequential operation to fast clock and back. Look forward to more of your posts.

Hi - thanks for the kind comments. Lots of finishing touches to do, but here's the scene almost completed complete with blagger on the top floor and a Copper after him!



Here's the yard throat



Started work on the branch terminus - Bishop's Brondescombe taking shape. A simple island platform arrangement and a two track yard. Great experience for newbies to the layout.

Hi Larry - thanks for your reply. Strange that we lived in Bristol UK for many years. The Dreary hotel came about because of it's awful position below the road bridge and the industrial estate alongside it. The name has been altered from the "Drury" which is a common name for a budget hotel chain for executives and business folk.

It's a Kibri kit, hashed up and joined together to give two frontal perspective. It's a super building and looks as dreary as the name suggests!

The Dreary hotel came about because of it's awful position below the road bridge and the industrial estate alongside it. The name has been altered from the "Drury" which is a common name for a budget hotel chain for executives and business folk.

It's a Kibri kit, hashed up and joined together to give two frontal perspective. It's a super building and looks as dreary as the name suggests!

Greetings from the other Bristol (Wisconsin USA):

Don't be surprised if you see a version of your "Dreary-Dury" on my SDJR - USA.

Nice progress on the layout there Craig.
Good job with the flats, the multicoloured doors are particularly authentic, especially in that awful orange and bright green.

Bringing the locos right up to date - Scott my brother brought up his EWS liveried stock. Looks different to my blue & yellow era - but very nice all the same.

 

60's on the shed. 60033 / 60093 & 60012



60093 with the Tilcon hoppers



Nice over head view of 66100 on a steel service with shed packed for a Sunday

My 40th birthday weekend heralded some new arrivals. Hornby 56013 in blue & Vi Trains 37429 in Construction grey. Here are some piccies of the weekend fun.



37024 /027 /038 / 108 / 142 / 207 / 238 / 405 / 408 / 428 / 429 / 671 / 678.



The Vi Trains 37's look great once you have added all the extras. They also need acoat of warning panel yellow too. The original is far too lemon colour.

 

Here's to another 40 years of modelling eh???

Had a very pleasant visit to Kernow models yesterday and spent some of my birthday gift money. A Heljan 58, and Bachmann class 108 which was based at Laira.

Took the opportunity to have a DMU fest in the carriage sidings. Hope you like it...

Too many, but there's always room for more as Chris says. It is a lifetimes collection. There's 33 class 47's, so that gives a rough number of Traction available. :shock:

Craig,

You have just been awarded a superb accolade; my wife happened to look over my shoulder at the computer screen, saw one of the images of your layout and asked if it was a model or the real thing!

As SWMBO doesn't miss a lot :???:, this is a great compliment to your work - and very well deserved, if I may say so.

:doublethumb

:cheers Perry

Hi Perry. Your missus is a star mate, that or needs glasses! Thanks very much. MY wife thinks the layout looks better on the small screen, but then you can hide things like wires, boxes and other clutter with careful trimming.

Comments like yours do make it all worthwhile. Still loads more to do.

Been making a by-pass bridge for the West end of the yard. It will act as a barrier between the urban yard & coastal harbour scene behind it. Loads of scenery to do so will press on over the next few weeks. Here's some pictures of work in progress.

The components all cut and ready to go. 3mm card & various Slaters embossed sheets trimmed to shape.



All constructed and waiting decorating



The bridge sprayed with grey primer



Painted and weathered, drainpipes & holes added and ready for the layout.

LOL, I'll use a blander background in future. Here's the bridge in place and some nice messy plaster pictures too. The Garden Centre must think I'm mad buying up all the basket liners!



Here's Bishop's Bronescombe tunnel mouth taking shape.

The basket liner looks good Craig good stuff fr grass embankments

I bought some last year but the missus knicked it to put in some hanging baskets.

Its about time we slowed you down and got you building a module for the YMR project.

Thanks. The yellow flowers break up the expanse on green. I dont like one colour dominating an area. I've toned down the grey and added some brambles to the back drop using coarse hanging basket liner sprayed with fast tack and woodland scenic flock.

 

The peak is a Bachmann class 46 weathered to Gateshead depot usually grimy standard!

Nice work Craig.
Are you going to do something to mask the transition between the bottom of the basket liner grass and the rest of the embankment underneath.
Just looks a bit artifical to my eye?
You wouldn't get a hedge or a fence there so I guess the only option is to add a few more bushes to the transition line.
What did you use for the yellow flowers? I need some?
cheers

Hi Marty

I will have a look at the ridge underneath the basket liner. The plaster is bolder then the wire underneath so may be able to secure it down better. The yellow is some bright looking scatter I picked up in the USA sprinkled on top the greenery when nearly done.

Hi there - a quick update:

Been busy with a new S&T compound & stores area to finish off the yard area.

The ratio industrial fencing and gates are great when weathered. The lugs are very brittle so its best to glue them into a cardboard former and ballast over it afterwards. I weathered the fencing with rusty acryllic paint watered down, and dried on the washing line! The S&T yard is parts of signalling equipment glued onto pallets - quite pleased with the results.

Thanks guys - nominate please! I do use Carrs powders, but add black powder paint for roof & bonnet grime. The whole loco is treated with matt varnish first (including the bogies), then the powder keys to the area much better.

The varnish is available in aerosols too.

Here are some latest photos from the blue paint shops...

Having acquired two 45114, a change was needed for one. So 45128 was created in banger blue, split headcose style from the late 70’s. 45128 was one of the last 45/1’s to lose its headcode panel. May leave her ex works..

 



 

Here she is again outside the end of platform 4 Mount Charles

Here's some pictures of the ballasting and point motors fitted to the tracks at Mount Charles.

33212 in the yard at Mount Charles shunting the Yeoman empties.



Class 108 arrives at Mount Charles with a local service



Over view showing ballasting and point motor boxes. DMU selection at Mount Charles East. Note the different shades & textures of the ballast. Dont like seeing one uniform colour right across a set of tracks.

what he means is the model shop ran out so he had to buy another type!!!

Nice one! I do need some more grey. Have to go to Kernow to pick up a rather nice blue 37254. Another blue 37 (I cant help myself!)

Some very atmospheric shots there, with loads of lineside detail that blends in well. I also like the feel of space that you have managed to include in the layout - very nice.

Thanks guys, much appreciated. I didnt want to cram the layout, and am lucky to have 12ft in length to play with, with 6ft platforms I have a nice approach to the terminus. It adds good perspective to leave a track or two's gap to differentiate between the main lines & sidings. Space may prevent this. The Mark ones in the sidings behind look about 1/4 mile away dont they? LOL.

 

Forgot to mention that the garage door has been blocked in! The OSB sheets need painting. The wooden frame was 2' x 2' rough timber and screwed into the walls (thermalite block) with window frame bolts. These are a godsend. The OSB sheets were then screwed onto it afterwards.





The sheets can be removed in 30 mins if necessary. Also got rid of the double fridge so freeing up another 2ft of terminus! Result or what?  Thanks to Chris for being the master of chippying on the day!

I reckon you could fit a blue Thumper in there now Craig :mutley

Seriously - nice work and good to see how things are coming along. Keep it up.

You never know, if the sneaky plans for a solo visit to the UK come off next year I'll have a lot more time to track down YMR members than I did last month :lol:. I might be knocking on the door!

Surely you are the wrong side of Truro to be far west!

There is something wrong with that 142 as well - the brown and cream appears to have faded to some sort of blue :twisted:

Hopfully the garage will now be warmer?? My garage door fell off its runners not long after we moved in! Needless to say the door was fitted back into the hole then held in place with some 6" nails.:lol: Once the edges were sealed with silicone the inside was boarded over. The albert dock branch now runs across the back carried on a 2" wide shelf. :thumbs

Thanks guys, it is much more snug in there. Feels more secure too. Would like to add a strip of board to the front, but have the layout to tight to the door. Can extend the terminal platform though - 8 coaches vice 6. NICE...

I really like this photo Craig, and it's sounds like a good move to block up the door, apart from the warmth factor, you also have the added security

Hi there

A few kits made up from the excellent Knightwing range. A Carriage servicing platform. Have added some lighting and some extra pipework from a similar pack. When painted they look very good.

Here's a Bachmann 108 P956 visiting for a brush up.

 





The eagle eyed may notice I've painted the garage door boards behind. Just have to add some sky, then I can extend the terminus 23 inches..

Nice additions there Craig. I like the grassed appearance of the ballast between the tracks - very much as you would expect from the real thing.

Hi Craig, this is looking excellent. Aren't Knightwing kits white metal? If so did you solder them or use super glue? They look terrific.

Hi again, thanks for the comments. The knightwing kits are plastic Les, so I use poly cement. There are some white metal add ons, trolleys and lights. I've yet to add these.

Like this kit, may get one later for my layout, have a idea of what i could use it for other than what it is meant for.

Just a quick plug, I have a weathering locos feature in the August edition of "Traction" mag. Has some layout shots and some weathering tips too. Very pleased with the article - hope you like it too!

Fantastic Craig. Yet another member in the press.:thumbs

I suppose I should know so forgive me if you have, but have you done a "how to" on your weathering on here? If not I can feel the pressure building.

Hello again. I'll explain the weathering soon I promise!

Here's some progress on the terminus extension. Slow progress due to the lovely weather, and gardening...

Here's the area prepared and ready for the 24 x 24 inch board.



 

 

Here's the station area as it will look when complete



 

Just wait for those super size Summer Saturday & Merrymaker specials to slide into the extra long platforms. :doublethumb

A bit of progress on the terminus extension. a class 31 & a DMU buried on plats 2 & 3 with the station building perched on top the main road.



I've brought a wonderful Vollmer 3801 office tower to complement the station area. Love to use height to full effect.

A couple of 12 hour shifts at Penzance was all I needed to nail the Vollmer kit. I have strained eyes now from looking at the tiny numbers on the plastic sprues!

I think it was worth the effort though. It takes pride of place on the station approach at Mount Charles, here are some pictures.

Hi Brian. They come with full instructions & already painted. They are a bit complicated to construct, but worth the effort.

The first proper sessions on the layout have been taking place with the layout taking a real hammering. Three people are required, two for driving and one for “setting up” off stage. The positions are passenger & freight. The Passenger man drives the main line passengers and shunts the terminus. The freight man is the shed foreman, yard master & freight driver. Great fun too.

Nick "Yogi", Nat & Chris were guests for last nights session. Nick's a Driver & Nat a Conductor so plenty of expert railwaymen around to see fair play! Chris is coming along nicely too. Heres some pictures from last night...

You need a limited clearance board in there Craig - not sure I could fit in that small space!

Love the 08 coming up the bank - could easily be Hayle if times were different.

Well Yogi is a large lad, but he just crushes us if we get in the way. It is a tad "comfy" but what the heck. We can spread out, this was an official photoshoot. More evening sessions to come.

Hi there - thanks for the kind comments. It has been great fun. We all wind eachother up, specially when an "irregularity" occurs. Nick (Driver) had a SPAD, I ran through some points (Signalman), and Nat departed before time (Conductor). So we dont take it too seriously..

As for timetable, there are 6 fixed rakes out & various Parcels trains / postals made to order. The London (7 x air cons) runs each hour. The Oxford (6 Mk2s) / Bristol (4 mk 2's) / Cross Country (6 Mk's) / Plymouth (5 mk 1's) run about every half hour.
The other Mk1 set is an as required scratch set (remember relief trains??), that can also run as a Charter if something exotic turns up. This "schedule" allows a good spin of all the 50's / 47's peaks 37/4 and other small locos like 33 / 31 etc.. Oh did I mention the 6 DMU sets too. These alternate between the mainline & the Bishop Bronescombe branch. The 158 is banned down there though due to RA restrictions. - Phew. The standing joke is that the sleepers must leave at 21.45. We're often scratching for a class 50 after 9pm to work it. It left right time last night.

Freight - thats a different matter.

He mentioned elsewhere that he signalled us through Truro back in April, so I assume he was referring to the 12" : 1' panel there.

Judging by this thread the layout would be a pleasure to operate.

Looks to me like you have the making of a club starting up down there.

Hope that you have a club/drivers room for them all to have a cup of tea :thumbs

The dial up members, if we have any, will love those. Short and snappy, just the job.

Very good videos there Craig

I assume on your layout all signalling is exactly as it should be in the real world?

Been adding some finishing touches to the branch station Bishops Bronescombe. It is a two platform terminal with an oil depot for visiting tanks (Shades of Hayle Wharves)

The whole complex fits snugly into 3ft, so may give some inspiration to someone planning a small station.

Cracking little layout, cracking pictures. I can see at least two jigsaw puzzles for me there.

Nice to do a bit of work as have fallen into the trap of running constantly and not finishing (is a layout ever finished)! Thanks for the comments.

Notice the last Signalman left the toilet door wide open!

I did notice. I have the same problem. Wills "Privvy and Grotty Hut" kit, if I'm not mistaken there Craig, also features on my farm scene where the door is wide open after the last use :oops:.

Born in a barn, some people.

Hi Alan, It is available in most shops - very cheap a pound a strip. Not sure who makes it though. I have painted it with acrylics.

Totally agree with you Alan, great walling I'll be looking out for it, never seen it before!

I presume it's double sided  ?

Yes that walling is really good. I wonder if Chris knows whose it is.

Can you please try and find out the make of the walling, as it seems a few of us would like to know :thumbs

I sometimes pass the time between posts solving them. When solved they look quite good in a jigsaw format.

I take it they're not available to the public ?  Some of them would make excellent presents - or are they "virtual" jigsaws ?

They are virtual jigsaws Peter but the software is free and you never lose any of the pieces.

Been digging around some rolling stock boxes and found the Freightliner wagons and some rather garish Murco oil tanke
