Thanks for that link, Dave. I have been thinking about getting one, but worried about what I have read is needed to chip it. By the way, although the link you posted is the correct one, you have managed to add a few non-printed characters at the end of the URL, so clicking it doesn't work. Maybe you can edit your post, but here is a working link:-

Thanks Geoff - I must remember to use preview and test the links before I hit send .:oops: 

Its a lovely model and one that I never thought would be made available as  RTR
- Heljan just need to have a DCC fitted version !!  although this will still not help those modelers who like to put passengers into their carriages.:cry:

The Heljan railbus (minus horns) but with handrails. 

I should have put a driver and a few passengers in situ before I fitted everything back together :cry:.

Its a very heavy model and runs very well with no problems on point-work

Big decision day today -  I will be dismantling Not North Road and building a new layout. It won't happen overnight as the new layout will be a different and smaller room that needs a good tidy up and a coat of paint before I can start

:hmm

OMG !!!!

Has anyone heard from Tim lately - his axe seems to be very busy just now ................:roll::roll:

Is this somethnig that's been brewing for some time Dave or is it a spur of the moment decision ?  Maybe the Heljan railbus is too heavy for your bridges .........;-)

Sol, Peter, thanks for your interest.

Its been at the back of my mind for about 6 months. The layout was started many years ago and wasn't really planned - it just evolved. Extra bits here an extension there etc and it grew into its present state - an operationally complex layout with lots of areas that are difficult to access.  Joining YMG and seeing what other members are doing I have found myself saying on more than one occasion "if only I had done this ..."  or "if only I hadn't done that"

The catalyst for finally moving from thinking about doing something to actually making a public commitment to do something  was my son leaving home and his room becoming available - a chance to build what maybe my last large layout from scratch but this time it will be planned - this time I will have all the YMR members watching me so that I actually do the planning this time- rather than just lay track until I run out of room.:eek:

Its a long term project and Not North Road will be around a while yet so that I still have somewhere to "play trains"

Thats a bold move Dave........I will watch with interest!

One big advantage must getting the block lengths and occupancy detection sorted for RR&Co. I am sure you have found, like me, that what looked ok initially is found wanting once you start intensive operation.

When do we see the track plan?

Kind Regards

Hi John,

Its a decision I've not taken lightly as  apart from the actual build it will involve  starting my RR&Co progaming from scratch and this time taking into consideration the learnings from the past year.

Re the planning - room is 4.6 m by 2.9m but a dormer of 0.8m by 1.5m is in one corner.  Not North Road (NNR) is 4.8m by 2m - so the new layout has to take up less floor space - so getting the planning right is going to be a challenge. 

My initail thoughts is that unlike NNR this time I will build the layout around the walls - maximum width say of  2 foot and leave the centre of room free but unlike NNR I'm thinking of something along the lines of a lower fiddle yard.

The other thing on my mind is that there is a lot of electronic kit in NNR other than tracks, points and point motors - so I have to avoid the temptation to design the new layout so that I can reuse as much as possible of the electronic components.  

Very early days yet - I will post the floor plan in the next few weeks so that I can benefit from the collective pool of wisdom.

From  Abingdon GWR 1940's  post

 "PS  (OFF TOPIC) Are you posting a planning thread Dave?......and what is the lay out to be called....North Road? "

Hi John,

I'm still in the tidying up the room phase - my son has been gone a year and there is still a pile of his things to be shifted.  So my planning is still in my head.   I'm thinking of making it two levels  with a fiddle yard on the lower level - my thought is to make the two levels continuous i.e  the train would have to travel the complete length of both levels to get back to where it has started - that way I can make good use of RR&Co and have plenty of activity on the mainlines.

This will be a challenge for  wood working skills and as I may have mentioned before planning is not my strong point - I tend to build it straight from a mental picture - that said I have been trying to use AnyRail  software but the going is slow. In addition I have been checking out all the plans and layouts on the forum sites looking for further ideas.

I haven't given any thought to a name as the layout  will not be based on any real location - so I guess it could end being called " Notanywhereinparticular"  although it will be a naughtyword getting that onto a station nameboard
:mutley
