Hi matey, welcome to the site..I'd like to say a class 66 + autoballaster! Real truth..Although a lot of people recommend not to use foam underlay, I purchased the gauge master pre ballasted foam underlay (quite expensive, but so much easier to install) whilst laying the track it automatically canted. I then purchased a bag of ballast, poured neat pva in between tracks and sprinkled. Although I painted rust on the sides I was going to weather the sleepers but didnt need to as the result was quite pleasing.

They've finally arrived! The new refurbished rake of Night Rivera sit awaiting a 57 that hasn't failed ;-)

The new FGW sleeping cars do look good though are too recent for my requirements. "Fag packet" is as modern as I go though I do have a 57 in that livery which works very well.

Unlike the real ones, currently struggling to deliver any sort of service, which is what your comment surely refers to ;-)

Withdrawal symptoms have got the better of me after the 18 months of building work. 

Unpacking the trains again after all this time is fantastic,  lots still to do before they start to run again with a bit of a

“Winter Storms 2014" situation going on and track being damaged in several places.

.....All parked up with bus replacement operating

Good to see it again, John.
That must have been some storm, to knock the platform lamp over like that.  :mutley

Apart from a couple of 153's later in the year, an expensive start to 2015 says its time to call it quits with the fleet now complete...I love my trains but NO MORE !  ....

You do great work. I wish I could get my scenery to look as good as yours. The photos reinforce my affection for British locomotives. I would like to see more pictures as you post them.

Many thanks Ed (and max previous coment). The layouts had a hard time over the last couple of years due to building work on the house, but it's up and running again for now, so I have what I think is a great photo to post soon. There's an ongoing debate with myself and the layout which is,  once I've finished the house do I get rid of Bodriggy bridge and fit model Long Rock, my other feed on here into the roof for good.

Did you get to upgrade the loft in the building process? A little more height maybe. Looking forward to some updates.

Marty

Hi Marty,

Couple of Velux for light and air, extra length but no extra height due to being semi detached, but all good !!

Pad - Penzance HST nears the end of the line as a Penzance - Plymouth 150/1 starts with a slow up.

Hi John. You are very fortunate to have a loft, alas I live in a Housing Association property and cannot use the " Roof Space" and risk being evicted. I should have gone in for a house when I was working, but I chose the annual holidays instead. all the best. Kevin

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been dismanteling the layout which is something I have been wanting to do for a long time but never had the heart to take the layout apart but today saw the last of Bodriggy Bridge head for the dump.
Bodriggy Bridge has served its purpose in teaching me new skills, but with limited photo shots and running movements the time has come to replace it with Model Long Rock which was going to be my portable exhibition layout. I have decided to have the layout as a permanent fixture which will give me hours of enjoyment and train operation.  
Please come and join me on the other thread, Longrock TMD (hope the link works, but you'll find it) http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=8933&forum_id=21
where construction of a layout from google earth and 100's of visits continue. 
Thank you to everyone who has followed BB over the last few years.

A bit late to the game but such a great looking layout! Some of the photos looked nearly real!
