Just testing as I'm not sure how to shrink my photos and get them on here for you to see !

My name is John, a self employed electrician with a 12 year old business, married with a daughter and desperate wanna be on the real railways, in the mean time, when I get a chance I just disappear into the loft and dream ..............

Hi, this is Bodriggy Bridge ! My current and modern layout. 

Although fictional, my ideas have come from part of the main line in west Cornwall - all of my favourite places !

As you pass Gwinear road you start to your final journey to Penzance. First you round the curve and appear out of my fictional tunnel to pass over the Angarrack viaduct.  Then you snake around the double set and pass under Nampusker bridge, before entering fictional Bodriggy Bridge station, (St Erth or Snerf to the locals ) ! A through main line station with a bay for the St Ives (Snives) Branch, which sees a sub leased 150 ATW or a 153 Wessex shuttling back and forth. The other side of the station leads the train on to the high embankment above Bodriggy Street before passing over Bodriggy Bridge and on down to PZ.  Behind the station is a modified Long rock depot. which will see FGW, XC and EWS locos stabling with Debbie the gronk shunting the fuel wagons around and occasional Colas RHTT. 

A massive simple continuous large loop layout , DCC operated causing me no end of hair pulling problems, with the cross over in the station makes it embarrassing to be an electrician ! HELP from anyone is required, anyone local or far away is welcome to have a play.....IF THEY SOLVE MY SHORTING PROBLEM FIRST !

I will keep photos coming of the slow progress, once I can make them smaller to get them on here !
Cheers for now, John

First question, John: How big is the layout? Can't wait to see broader views and the like!

Looking forward to seeing another modern image layout in the making. Re pics are you uploading them to the YMR gallery or photobucket ? The gallery automaticly resizes pics for you whilst on photobucket if you click more upload options under the green upload bar you will find a panel with different pic sizes. Select large (640 x 480) and then save and your pics will then be automaticly resized when you upload them. :thumbs

Hi John,

The easy way to get photos on the forum is to use the forum's own gallery.

Simply click the reply button and start typing your message, then when you want to show a photo hit the return key (which will seperate the text from the photo) and click on "upload new photo for insertion" which is above the reply panel. Fill in the necessary ("select photo / browse") and then click "upload photo".

Make sure you hit the return key again before you type any more words, so that the photo and the text are correctly seperated once more.

You can insert a number of photos at one time by hitting the return key and then clicking onthe upload button again. Let us know if there are any problems.

PS on edit - using the gallery feature will automatically adjust you photo to the correct size without you needing to do it manually before uploading, but the photo on your computer will remain it's original size.

Just shout if you have any problems with the upload, John. We'll talk you through it.

By the way, if you haven't been told already, this Forum's unofficial motto is, "No question too daft!" (I really must translate that into Latin for the YMR Shield;-))

If you're having problems with this new fangled "just 2 wires" DCC system as an electrician, then there's absolutely no chance for us mere humans !!!!

Looking forward to seeing more of this wonderful sounding layout. :cheers
