Irrespective of the actual buildings that I may use for that siding, I have decided to give it a name as I am doing the simple "panel" for that end of my Barnstable & it will be called " L+S Doors". Photo of the "panel " will be coming later.

The extra point installed as per post #55, needed to be operated so I have installed  a  Peco switch directly into the baseboard which was the liftup.



This a close up



Connects to a Masterswitch which in turns fires the Side Mounted Peco motor.

The other panel as shown on Jun 2 of the actual station & loop will also be modified now.

Ron on your layout will it be a mix of GWR and southern steam locos or are they all going to be british rail steam locos?

Some GWR & BR steam - mainly tanks but the majority of locos will be diesels - saves me a turntable. The latest little station, Watchit is sited where I was planning a largish shed for steam, etc.
Once I convert the other 3 dead sidings of Tiverton to thru running, then tender locos can be used.

That works nicely in British outline but how different it is for our Australian modellers. Even the most modern locos often require turning before they can lead a train. :???:

Good to see the recent developments around Barnstable, keep them coming.

Nowadays freight trains use more than one diesel in consists, so there is usually one pointing the 'right' way.  The Overland runs past our place and usually only has one, but they have driving positions both ends.

With a suggestion by another modeller, the planned platform at Barnstable has been moved to be opposite the loop & the goods area shifter towards L+S Doors, this then let me move the point feeding L+S Doors giving a longer track. The latest Hornby Mag has  a Scalescenes Low Relief Warehouse which will do for the goods shed & I have downloaded a large Scalesscenes warehouse for L+S Doors.The point levers have been moved to be together as well.

Now in between track work, wiring, train cards & wagons, I will be starting on Barnstable buildings, etc.

The L+S Doors factory based on the photos that Alan supplied will use as a base, Scalescenes TO26 Factory- Warehouse



and for the goods shed


on this spot where the Saxa van is situated. The L+S Doors will be at the far left of this same track.




This is of course from Hornby Magazine #26 - another Scalescenes product. As I build this following the Instructions, I will take photos.

The low relief warehouse is quite large for my needs so I have worked out that I can remove 1" / 25mm from the height and  1 &1 /4" / 32mm from the length to make it look better & playing with Nero Image program, I even managed to reduce the sliding doors in size to fit the new openings . This warehouse normally sits on the baseboard level for road access but mine will be rail so I will need to make a platform  to go with - No end to improvements, etc.

Now for carefull cutting out & gluing to card.

OK, making the front wall, I have taken 1"'/ 25mm off both the height & length.

Top part is the original ,bottom is mine



By the time I finished, I hope it looks the part.

Ron

Can i make a suggestion

why dont you do a seperate thread for building your warehouse i dont believe we actually have a scalescenes build on here but lots of pics of totally completed ones.

It would be nice to know how you find the build

problems you encounter and how easy you find them to work with.

The scalescenes products are very good value and im sure many more members would use them if they knew how hard or easy they are

cheers Brian
