I have had so much positive feedback with Potters lane that I have decided to build another module after the show in september. At the time we started thinking about YMR modules ( feb 2009) I was unemployed and rather depressed after being made redundent for the second time in under two years! The YMR project came along at the right time and helped me to deal with the depression not to mention the support from my vertual friends on YMR. As potters devloped I found tht I have a nack of doing modern buildings and again with some YMR encouragement I put together a website and devloped an idea that is westcoast miniatures. Over the past 18 months I have done 10 individual buildings for clients and I have plans in the pipeline to extend the westcoast range as well as a few projects to start after the show including a farm for someone at work! Anyway back on topic the YMR show will be potters 5th outing and I have another 2 shows booked. The layout always gets good feedback from the public but I dont think that I can devlop the layout any further from where it is right now so im planing an extension. Origanaly I was thinking of doing two additional scenes that would fit at either side of potters and be linked to a fiddle yard at the rear. Now that I have two end fiddle yards the opitunity has opened up to just build another module to extend the main line run. The new module will be a corner unit and I have already posted some pics in the potters thread showing the basic idea. The new module will be used to showcase some local buildings that are due to be demolished shortly as our town centre is being redevloped. The corner unit will also be used to link potters with a new layout being built by nsegaz. This layout is still in the early stages of planning but when finished will give us a realy impresive show layout. Anyway back to the new module im thinking of a choice of name and have decided to rearange Newton Aycliffe to give me either Ayton Newcliffe, Newcliffe Ayton, Newcliffe or just Ayton. At the moment the im swaying towards the second option. What do you guys think ?? ;-)

Newcliffe Ayton or New Ayton would be my choices and of those two I think New Ayton sounds marginally better.

I'd go with either "Ayton Newcliffe" or just "Newcliffe"

Given that there's already a "Great Ayton" not a million miles from you,some people might get erm, confused.............:???::???:
