A few ideas, but I spent most of my time in the UK as a tourist.  I have been working on a timetable and operating waybill system for the layout.  I will share  soon.  But for a teaser I am using wagon labels to identify my wagons.

I print them on both sides with one being the loaded wagon the other empty.

On the Bickley Central the Branch Line is where all the shunting is done so I can have other trains running on the UP amd Down all the time while I shunt the branch line.

I am also working on a time table as well.   I have uploaded a fast clock to display of my lap top.   Once I have everything together I will run through the whole lot to see what I need to do to fine tune an operation session.   My idea is to to be able to do everything in a hour or two.  

Many years ago a friend of mine had a free lanced North American Layout which we had operation sessions on.  I use to enjoy it.  Since my system isn't as expansive as his system I think I can still find it fun to operate.  He use to have tabs that fitted on his rail cars that had a destination and return info on it.  It was a very simple system but worked very well.

I have emulated his system but instead used way bills.

As with the real railways over the Christmas season I have been busy doing some work on the railway.   I got a few building kits which are now built and sit on the layout.  I have ballasted the rest of the track, and I can say that the layout is about 90% complete.   Once all is cleaned up, I will attempt to operate the timetable and operating procedures.  I hope everybody had a good Christmas with tons of railway presents.

Happy New Year

William

I thought I should start 2015 with a photo taken on my Layout.  Its a reproduction of an actual Photo my dad took in 1960 at Stafford near the Crinoline Bridge.

A few more Current Photos of The Bickley Central.



On the curve leaving Maryford Station A Up Goods train on the main line.  In the background is a Christmas present from my Mother In Law.


 
On overall shot toward the Town of Maryford.  In the background is another pressy The Station Hotel.  In the Station is an express from London on its way to Sheffield.   An oil train in the loop and a full M.P.D.



Just on the outskirts of town.  In the back groud an express passenger train from London bound for Sheffield is on the main line.  Shunter on the Branch is dropping a 16 t coal wagon off at the coal drops.   In the foreground a Goods train has just come out of the tunnel and on its last leg of its journey to Maryford.




Blutted Sidings -Due to TAB Brewery having a rather large Brewery Here-.  TAB has been located in this area for many decades here and its large Brewery Dominates this suburb of Maryford.   The Other industry is an engineering works which is across the road from the Brewery.  A branch line from Maryford serves this area.

Hi William,

Really fantastic scenes. I love the coal drop and the demolished house in particular. Really good work.

Cheers

Toto

Hi William, I have just gone through your thread from start to finish and I must say I am very impressed, your eye for detail is excellent, I just wanted to ask, early on you said you were going to revamp your colliery scene with new pit head winding wheels, did you source some? cos I am looking for 4 sets for a project I am planning and I am struggling here in the uk.

Cheers for now, Pete.

Pete,

My brother has drawn up plans, and had two complete headgears etched for him in brass, wheels included, they look the biz, if you need anything, I can give you his email, but not at the moment as I'm in Sorrento.

If your interested, send me a PM from Saturday on and I can sort it.

Phil

Sorry that I have not posted much, I am getting ready for my open house.   Every so often I host two British Railway Clubs in Ontario.  The Playelayers and the Buffers.   Pictures will follow after the event.

My open house was well attended. I think at least 40 people came over. Photos will be coming soon.   I have not done much on the layout except fix a few electrical issues.   Most of the scenic work is finished.

I now have time to work on my layout.   I am changing the era to the early seventies so a bunch of photos will be on the way in the new year.   For the last couple of years the layout era has been the early 60's.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

William
