Is it possible you could tell us how you do the roads they look really life like and the buildings scratched built?.

Keep 'em coming, William. It's good to see such a fine layout and fascinating to see how it's being modelled in another part of the world.

Some of the "how to" notes you could write would be most revealing (just like your canal explaination is). I find that when I occasionally buy Model Railroader or another American magazine there are some different approaches to scenic work that are very worthwhile reading.

keep up the good work and keep us updated   ...   we love it!!

Just an overhead shot of how my roads look.  I usually start with a plaster base for my roads then I sand as smooth as possible.  I then paint the road a light grey with an airbrush, I then use roof brown for the edges and then paint a stripe down the middle of each lane.

I am also working on some row houses on the layout, I am awaiting for a rainy day to work on this. There are lots to do on this part of the project.



Thanks for all the comments

 

William

Yes a great place to pose some trains! Nice impression of height there, too. It looks a long way down to the canal.

Good progress William, the canal and lock look the part.
I particularly like the vegetation around it.
Is the wee scotty dog still doing his business around the place?

Oh, MikeC, did you notice that Mr Nolan has gone on holiday? :lol:

Either he's won lotto or you are paying him too much :D

The question is... and I'm just speculating mind nor do I approve of idle gossip... does the rumble on the Swanhurst grapevine about Mrs Powell's only daughter's unexplained departure on the 3.15 to the city last thursday have any relevance? :shock: :roll: :lol::lol::lol:

I made the trees using wire and hot glue method, I then used a combination of woodland scenics foilage and old scouring pads (the plastic ones)

Ah the wee scotty dog, he gone right now and will appear somewhere else on the layout, His master couldnt find the book he was looking for so he will have to go into city to one of the bigger merchants.  Problem is the city isn't built yet.:cry:

The Bickley Central in the mid 1960's

One thing I made sure that I could do on my layout The Bickley Central was to be able to change eras.

With an assortment rolling stock that has become larger than I can accomodate on the layout I have found that having multiple eras usefull.  It can be the late 50's mid 60's and early 70's by changing road vehicles and occasionaly a building or two. So for the next while I am in the 60's

Enjoy

I wish it was my layout i tell you, any chance you want a free holiday, come here and then do my layout:thumbs, free board and lodgings mate :lol:.

More lovely pictures of your layout how many years have you been working on it in its present form?

I have a loco and rolling stock storage problem as well i just have shelves above the layout and below it usual problem is im trying to squeeze a quart into a pint pot.

I like multiple eras and no specific region once i start doing my extention and rebuild one of my ideas is to have differant parts of the layout in differant time periods

I dont know if it will work as it is just an idea at the moment .

cheers Brian.W
