:hiHi Bod.

The photos are really cool, and starting with a loft space like you've got is a winner. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you're going to do there.

"really looking forward to seeing what you're going to do there"

Especially anything with model railway connections.

Amazing - an update.

Negotiations have (temporarily) failed for both loft rooms so I am limited to the long thin space as shown in a previous photo.  I have been doing some planning for this space.  Here are some of my original thoughts and rationale as a background.

I want to watch trains run by so it will be a double track roundy roundy type layout.  I enjoy making scenery so it will be running through countryside rather than a town.  It could be loosly based on a summit such as Blea Moor, Beatock etc giving the excuse for lay-by loops.  It could have additional sidings for an engineers yard, virtual quarry, wood loading facility, exchange sidings, or some other use.


I would like, if possible,  to run it over a couple of different time periods so buildings will be minimal and/or some of the buildings, signals and other time dependent items could be 'hot-swappable'.

Here is the plan Mk1  and I would like to throw it open for suggestions.  Any help/input would be greatly appreciated.

Ignore the various arrows and crosses - they are part of the construction rather than the plan and don't indicate direction of travel.

Seems like a plan ......... simple enough to create and operate, facing points only where they are needed .........

I especially like the scenic bit.


What proportion of the track is hidden by the tunnels, BoD?
I can see the entrance. Is the viaduct the overbridge?

A better illusion might be provided by the track disappearing into tunnels at the apogee of circular track instead of at an angle but you will know best.

Lots of track!

Nice plan Bod

Just having a countryside seen is a great idea many of us stereotype to often thing we must have a town/station/farm etc

Bloomin' eck BoD, you've done well with Templot....
Thanks.  Now I just need to master this woodworking malarky.

facing points only where they are needed .........

Hi Rick.  I'm not sure what you mean here, that's probably me rather than you. Do you mean that is what I have done and got it correct or is there something that I need to correct?  I was unsure about the crossing on the running lines at the top left.

 

Hi DD

The tunnel will be a tunnel mouth with a shortish scenic section of fell side above it.  Beyond that ( anticlockwise from the mouth of the tunnel on the diagram) will be the non scenic area.  This non scenic section, the fiddle yard, runs right round to the overbridge.    I take your point about positioning. The final positions of the tunnel mouth and overbridge are at present a moveable feast.

The viaduct will be on the scenic side of the tunnel mouth between the tunnel and  loops.  Size, number of arches etc. again will be decided at the building stage.

BoD,

Based on the evidence of your last layout,I'm sure this will turn out to be a cracker with some stunning scenery.Like the idea of a multiple era layout too.You'll be able to run virtually anything you like!!

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

Yes, it's correct. Nothing needs to be altered

I was unsure about the crossing on the running lines at the top left.

That is legitimate because it gives you direct access into the yard. If it wasn't there you would need to shunt backwards onto the inner loop before drawing forwards into the yard. That can also be right but reversing models around a curve isn't always a good idea and there is nothing wrong with what you have planned so why change it?

Thanks Rick and others. 

Here is some wood I made earlier from some old Fairy Liquid bottle tops and sticky-backed plastic.




As you can see from the photo below I have a hammer, a chisel and some screws.  Once I get the hang of using them, work on the baseboards will commence.

It may not be widely known, but all Sunderland supporters are granted a sense of humour.  It's in their genes....;-)

Yes.
If we could only understand what they say, we could all laugh at their jokes.

A  necessary adaptation for survival in the Northern climes I guess.

"Sunderand", is that the well-known Chinese football team?
