The coal yard was fed by standard gauge but up at the pit head it had its own narrow gauge working in the pithead area  to me it makes for a good exhibition layout mixing the differant gauges on the one layout

Phill i think there are other swiss type ones i will try and up load them i think i have something like 130 photos as you know it takes time to upload to photobucket

cheers Brian.w

Thanks HP, I can work out where the differing gauges are, now that you've added that info.

Perhaps you have a few more pictures of the pit, that you can show when you have time :question Cheers.

The Swiss layout is Peter Rosewarnes - he is a member of Hayle club but it is his own personal layout.

The coal layout is great with all the different levels!

Looking forward to more Brian, thanks for posting these.

I am a bit boring here as I like the welsh layout as well, looks like the sort of layout that you could spend a lot of time viewing at a show, with a lot going on. It also looks like a very large layout, which = a lot of work.

Thanks for putting the images up Brain

Ok here are some more photos of the show for you all to see

First in this batch is an N Gauge layout a small but beautifully done small layout for the scale it is very detailed and shows how one can produce something special in a small area.









 

more later

Ok  next one

This is an 00 modern image layout nicely done some nice scratchbuilt buildings the half relief buidings at the back are very good and certainly set the scene better than just a picture or photo backdrop.



















next ones later

Great photos Brian - thanks for taking the time to post them. ;-)

My favourite is the 2nd layout - "OO" with "sweeping curves".  Really life-like entrance to the tunnel through the cutting.  Also, along with the others, I like the coal-mine.

Scenically that N gauge bridge and surrounds does it for me. Amazing in N gauge.

That N gauge bridge scene is positively awesome - and I like the Swiss-theme layout. Now those are some tight curves :exclam:shock::shock: What was running on that track, Brian?

More cracking photos, Brian, thanks for posting.

That last one is especially useful for me. As you know I'm in the process of a low relief scratch build for my club's layout and there's talk of upgrading more buildings later. There's a lot of detail in your photos that will give me some ideas.

Thanks mate :thumbs:thumbs

These are great, Brian. Many thanks for doing this.
Love that track curving into the tunnel. The N scale with bridge and trees looks terrific too. They look like sea moss trees to me
