[size=The Bickley Central]

Hello I would like to introduce you to my Layout the Bickley Central. The layout is located in the basement of my residence in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. It's a two era layout right now currently firmly set in the 1970's. I will be going back to the 60's soon. Its a folded dogbone style layout with a hidden storage yard below the station. It measures aprox 17' x 17'. Its freelance in design but has some LMS influence.



More pictures to follow

That bottle of glue is a product from the brewery in the brewery section of the layout. Sometimes after working on a model and it falls apart I need one of those bottles of glue just to stay in one piece.


Track plan of the layout.

Each small square = 3" Total size of layout is 15' x 15' 3"

Thats a lovely layout William brilliant example of how good a dogbone layout can be.
Obviously you have had to use a large amount of those special bottles of glue you have to complete the layout.
Do you swap buildings over and other things when you change era?
cheers Brian

Nice layout William, I especially like the way you have incorporated the gentle curves instead of using straight track. It give the layout a more realistic look as far as I'm concerned. Please keep the pictures coming.

Today's tip:

Always post pictures before using the glue! :shock: :shock:

I usually dont change the buildings over, I have a few more modern buildings that I most likely will incorporate in my next change of era. I thought about having a building all boarded up or vandalized.

I usually change the vehicles over but since I am modeling the 60's then 70's I usually dont bother much with them.

I Have included a couple of shots of other areas of the layout

What about those buildings William, kits or scratchbuilt? I particularly like the big warehouse type one.

The buildings are a mixture. The big warehouse is the Heljan Brewery, the others are Design Preservation Kits from the States. I am also using the Walthers Building Modules. Also a few Wills kits thrown in for good measure.

William this looks very good indeed. I love those street scenes. Your asphalt looks excellent, and the buildings belong in their setting because you've weathered and painted them so well.
I think I could tolerate a few dozen views.... :lol:

Hopefully I will have some more photos of street scenes in the next couple of days. I have been busy working on the layout for a photo shoot that needs to be done for Sat.

Here are a couple of shots of the coal mine and viaduct and a general view of the layout.

Thanks for the compliments

The project that I am working on right now is a canal scene. It involves a staircase of locks.



I scratch built the lock gates from some Wills engine shed doors and parts from the water wheel kit. The other parts were used on the coal mine.

As well as being a beauty it is good to see that it shares a dual purpose as a work bench too.... flexible, that's wot our members are :lol: :lol: :lol:
Great layout... a really nice use of the folded dogbone style.
Looking forward to seeing more as it develops.
Thanks for the photos.
cheers

The viaduct is built like a rock, it most likely is stronger than my workbench.

William - that looks very, very good. I note we have yet another "master craftsman" on the forum !! :lol: :lol:

Looking at all the space you have, I wonder, do you have a house on top of your basement or is it all for model railways ? Must immediately dash out and buy a basement :wink:

Love the viaduct on a curve - that's my "turn-on" - features on curves, be it a station (as, hopefully, mine will be) or a bridge or other structure. It seems to suggest that the railway has followed natures true contours rather than making nature follow our railway.

Look forward to more photos and, one of my favourites - a "how I did it" thread.

Petermac
