Weekend of 9/10 Oct I exhibited a small two module layout at the Noarlunga club model rail show.
The layout depicts a small transport depot and the Heljan fully operating container gantry.

Transport depot with steam fan train passing.


Itinerant asking semi driver for a ride. The mesh fence is completely scratch buit.


overall view of the two modules.


Our Sol operating(??) the container gantry.

Signed autographed photos of the last pic only costs £10.( cheques payable to R.L.Solly Esq.)

The gantry is good fun to "operate".

The gantry is good fun to "operate". It is, can almost be a hobby by it self.

Great to see the modules in action Ian and a relatively rare shot of an operator at work as well.  The scratchbuilt fence looks very convincing.

Thanks Rick, the fence was made with copper wire and wedding veil.
the stands of barb on fence top was made with very fine copper wire wound around 1/16th piano wire to form a spring like coil.
The coiled wire is then flatened and pulled thru fingers which forms kinks in the wire.
 The mesh is a little over scale but  it was all I had on hand and time was running short.

 Ian

Hello Ian,
Really excellent modelling, mate, but as far as paying Ron £10.00 he should be paying you, and us, £15.00 for having to look at him. Mind you he is quite a "smooth operator" :roll::lol:,
Kind Regards,
Michael Thornberry.

About 10mins per metre if your asking about the replicated barb wire on top of the fence.

"who or what is a Lilo Lil?"

A lady of uncertain morals but with built in swimming aids who featured in a popular TV series set in Liverpool.

She was my inspiration for the contours on Much Wittering's Lilo Hill.
