Hi,
I'm new to this forum so I thought I would show my layout as a way of introducing myself.
I'm into railway modelling and the real thing, living on the south coast I try and visit Eastleigh and Southampton as often as I can, which to be honest isnt as often as I would like. 

I'm married with 3 children and work shifts full time so my spare time is fairly limited.

My layout is situated in my garage at the bottom of the garden, originally it was a roundy roundy type but due to the size of it and my spare time it just seemed a never ending task so I have reduced it to an end to end.

The story goes a bit like this:
Redbrook is somewhere in Southampton, situated near to the docks. (Time period 2005 - present) 
The area modelled is a small light maintenance depot owned and operated by Freightliner, there is also a small wagon maintenance department here too.

As you can imagine Freightliner locos are the main visitors to the area, however due to the 3 sidings also present, other locos from rival companies can be seen coming and going.
The sidings are used mainly by container traffic however engineers stock and occasionally car transporters are held here prior to going into the docks for loading/unloading. There is news of steel and coal traffic also becoming regular traffic in the area so watch this space.

Currently there is no passenger traffic at Redbrook, although there is talk of the station being re-opened due to re-development in the area, both commercially and residential.

So where am I with the layout to date?

I was doing quite well, I had the backscene covered in sky paper and low relief buildings etc in place but I just wasn't happy. (you'll come to learn that I change my mind/get bored easily)
So I have recently ripped it down and have painted the backboard blue.

All track is laid and mostly ballasted, its all wired and all point motors fitted.

Now I'll be quiet and post some pictures, please note that the layout has changed slightly since taking these, as it develops I will add more.

The depot area














As you can see its still work in progress but i'm slowly getting there.
Thanks for taking the time to read about Redbrook.

Cheers
Scott

Well I think you are doing pretty good there Scott. You said you reduced it to an end to end. In that one photo it looks pretty long, just how long is it?

Thanks for the comments,
The layout is 28 feet in length on the viewing side, its actually a J shape, with the fiddle yard being about 9 feet in length.

Yes the van is from Bachmann, before this one I had a home made one but with my skills it just wasn't as good as the current one.
Apparantly the burgers taste better too!

Fab layout - not too cluttered. Like the road disappearing off from the level crossing. Do the crossing lights work?

I can understand the attractions of modelling modern era stock, that UK stuff has the same appeal to me as does American. I like the look of all the open spaces-no clutter. Well done, hope to see more.

And welcome!

Thanks again for the comments, I have to admit that im currently going through a bit of modellers block.
I'm frustrated with the backscene at the moment. The road disappearing has been removed and has been replaced with more containers. Since removing the sky backscene the photo of the road just didnt work for me, when it was stuck to the painted backboard.

I will post some pictures soon, so you can see the difference.

To answer Craigs question, the lights will work when I get the module, I've just had other things to spend my money on recently.

Thanks for looking

Scott

Hi,
Just a quick post to show the change to the port entrance, I know that its not as good as the previous photo entrance, but as I have mentioned I'm dwelling too much on the backscene so I'm moving on. This is the best way I can do it at the moment.
The idea is that the road to the container port will be off to the right, and due to the narrow road it will be one way (yet to do the one way arrows)



None of it is in place properly yet, its all just resting in place until I get the time to secure it.
Time is a bit limited at the moment.

Cheers for now

Scott

No they're not actually, I found a website that allows you to print them off for free...
I'll post the link below

http://homepage3.nifty.com/container/contents-E.htm

All you need to do is click the sub headings under "side view and container logo" The 20' ones are an exact match for OO gauge. Not sure about the 40' ones. ( i only use the 20')
Print off and stick to foam board. Simple.

Cheers

Scott

Hi,
Not a great deal happening at the moment, although the postie has delivered a nice parcel.
The MPV is just brilliant, the model itself and the running performance make it a supurb model.

Here the MPV has arrived on driver training but has already made itself comfortable in a siding, home away from home.



I have also been having a go at converting an old cararama cement mixer into a Freightliner lorry. The Hi-ab arrived the other day and I have since fitted it. Still a bit more to do but its getting there.


Other news is that I have put some more hardstanding down at the far end of the layout. I was going to have some kind of rail served distribution import/export warehouse, however I may now turn it into a Network Rail depot. The MPV would fit in just nicely!

Thanks for looking

Scott

I have to say its the best model I own, it looks great and runs even better. This one is the DCC fitted one. Luckily I had pre-ordered it so saved myself about £30.

Go on, you know you want to....
