I was visiting Reg today, following our trip to the Royston MRE and I spent a bit of time testing some stock on Blossom Hill. Reg has installed a rather magnificent suspension bridge, with lights and I took the opportunity to take a picture. Here is one of Reg's locos (Bachmann Class 24) crossing the bridge, with all the lights on:

 




Looks pretty good to me!

Excellent.  Now all I have to do is remember where I saw it for next weeks HPOTM.  Could you photoshop that right hand light a bit, Bob?  Tilt it to the right a touch . . . :thumbs

That bridge shot is beautiful....even from a non-railway lovers' position,it would still be a very 'arty' shot.

Ooh, been looking at those, how did that run? Also how did it negotiate the points around your fiddle yard area, which I know you were working on last time I was there?

The class 15 ran very well bob. The lighting on this model (i think its a Heljan thing) is not easy to discern but is there. .quite smooth running ,and quiet.

 Those points on the fiddle yard .I bought second hand at an exhibition, one in particular has and still is a problem i have to clean the small tab on the moving rail quite often ,when i get back on to wiring i may be able to solve it  without removing the point and disrupting otherwise satisfactory work.:thumbs

Heres a piccy of the lights forward first



A reverse direction you can just see the two red lights the flash makes them duller they are bright normally




Nice loco runs well like all Heljans

Thanks Brian. Simons lights are not as bright as those . could be because the loco was not chipped and we ran it on dc?

 I will show him these piccys  and he can look to see if something is amiss.  :cheers

I paid Reg a quick visit whilst home in UK for a couple of days ( I fly back to Liberia tomorrow) and took a look at Blossom Hill. Reg and I also did a bit of testing of his new Prodigy DCC system, which I have to say was very easy to use and overall very good. In doing so I followed a couple of locos around the track and here is an overview of Blossom Hill:

Starting at the fiddle yard, exiting from the top of the picture:




The track turns left, over the stairs via a rather grand suspension bridge:







Then left again, over Jacobs Creek down towards Blossom Hill station:




Past a small headshunt siding:




Into the planned station area, with sidings about to be laid on the right:




A new development has been the insertion of two double slip points (still to be weathered) located at the far end of the station throat and on the goods loop, to access the new area of sidings. The wiring up of the turntable is also completed:







Also a new factory complex, based on converted old buildings, is being scratch built in the area of the arches (note the canal):




Finally the track swings left, running over Reg's work bench and turns back towards the fiddle yard:




A great layout with some superb long runs for lengthy expresses and freight trains to stretch their legs.

I see the staircase route follows closely the Gordon prototype - with marginally less damage!
