Mobile Phone Photo Upload,

One of the benefits of modern phones is you can quickly snap a shot to record progress, the problem is getting them posted, this is going to be a quick post of a few photos showing how the layout started and the progress over the past few weeks and this weekend, I hope to do a proper update post on progress to date following on from this one.

Below; the layout at the very start, after the N gauge track had been ripped up, and the 00 gauge track placed in-situ



Below; Buildings and retaining wall placed to give a feel of the layout, platforms in-situ







 

Below; retaining wall being installed along with a number of other details



 

Below; Dapol signal gantry with Berko lights, I have decide to only install two started signals rather than three, this was due to restricted space in the switch area as the signals were an after thought








 

Below; further retaining wall installed and the signal gantry



 

Below; an over all picture of the layout from last night, tunnel mount installed





Below; The Kingsmead Tube Station from Kingsmead Mark 2 has been rescued and modified for Kingsmead Mark 3 (Mark 4 if you included my brief dabble in N gauge)




Below; Using foam Board I have raised up the street level

Many Thanks Matt,

 




Above; The platform ends, the wires for the lighting are ready to receive the lighting unit, the section above the platforms will be removable to allow cleaning, the back scene on the inside of the platforms shows a station concourse, and further platforms.

 



Above, signal gantry settled in with ladder and the tunnel entrance to the station





Above, part of the street scene, I am happy with the tube station location, but the need to build more shops on the right build a realistic scene on the right hand side




Above; the point motors (dummy), concrete trunking and relay boxes painted and in place.

 

Next step, ballasting (oh fun) and more buildings, really need to get in contact with Kingsway models

Hi Max
I haven't built the layout with the intent of exhibiting, but if once the layout is completed it might be an option open to the layout if the interest is there, though a new fiddle yard would be required.

Looking good Aaron, I like the back scene in the station. It really blends in nicely and throws the space wide open.

Good stuff

Cheers

Toto

Hi toto, 
Its one thing that I have learnt is that on small layouts, it's required to add the feel that there is more space than meets the eye.
Regards
Aaron

Hi, It has been a while since I have updated progress with the railway, one of the reasons has been that my old Netbook died on me so have had to go out and buy a new shiny laptop, any excuses really :mutley

One of the things I have done, is construct the station building, this is the 'black cat tavern' from Kingsway's models, but built it as low relief building rather than a corner building, It has been added too with some Metcalfe canopies left over from Kingsmead mark II, and a home made station sign.




The bank and shop Metcalfe kit has been finished and put along side the station building, and a small shop has been put in at the end to form a alley way along the side of the bank.



The corner agents/office building has been made into a pub instead, to me it looks better as a pub,




Another pub on the corner, and between is the cinema with wine shop and book shop, and the tube station, a lot of places to get drink on this layout.



the Grain of wheat bulbs have been installed on a separated circuit, powered by the ex-N gauge controller, and some plastic I beams to hide the wiring. the track has been partly ballasted, though there is till more to do.



I was at the Bristol model railway exhibition at thornbury the other weekend and managed to pick up some goodies form myself, theses have been initial weathered




 

well, that's all folks, till next

Popped in to the model shop earlier this week and saw something that I couldn't refuse, It is a converted Lima class 117, Its in Br blue grey which is a bit to late for my layout, but it shouldn't take too much to re-spray in BR blue, and re-number the pair, a project for the summer.

Lots of little bits of progress, but haven't had time to do a complete update, I have added third rail to the main line, as I have been looking at some of the southerner EMU's, Steel girders are being put into place, and terrace houses are being built, the stabling area has had a water crane added and a few bits of 'old tat' to spice the area up,




Terrace houses being built up, all just plonked in place,,

 




The Hymek in the parcels platform, you can just see the buffer beam of a second hand 'mainline' class 03, needs some work to it, another job to add to the list, but now frees up the class 22 for other duties. Photo taken from the main platform, I have tried to make the image look 70's-ish  

 



Hymek again, taken from the stabling point, just see the water crane on the right, though a bit blurred. again modified to try for a 70's look

Having moved recently, I haven't been able to get around to the railway layout until today, The layout has been placed in the so called 'dressing area' which is an extra width corridor between the bathroom and the bedroom at the top of the stairs. this area only has a skylight which has a blackout blind so there is no risks of sunlight fading the colours of the railway. The area is also well lit by the rather interesting spotlights which help with my eyes when things get fiddly.

Having today and tomorrow off on holiday to take time to enjoy my 24th birthday, I have finally gotten around to fixing the damage caused during the move, I have also been to the model shop, and had a running session with my new purchase, Class 33's have been a favourite locomotive of mine, but since I sold my three lima class 33's nearly two years ago, I have been without, until today, I now have a Heljan pre-TOPS, BR Blue class 33.

Below is a photo taken during the running session, Hope you enjoy, Hopefully with the wet and wonderful autumn and winter on its way, I should be doing some progress on the railway.

Managed to find some time to get on and build, kind of scratch built a bus depot from bits and bobs of Metcalfe kits, and combine the two house I had in to one.




And Finally got an EMU for the third rail :Happy

I have started working on the telephone exchange, part of my work has involved surveying telecom rooftop towers on BT telephone exchanges and has meant that I have done a number of visits to such building in London.

 




 

An over view of this side of the layout, Original going to be two store terrace houses, it has now change to a three storey terrace house, a bus garage and a telephone exchange, still lots to do, including another back scene board.

 




 

An over all view of the layout, including the fiddle yard and controls.

 




The early morning parcels sits at the platform awaiting for reloading.

 




A class 52 western arrives wit a short parcels train, possible a GUV or BG from Paddington destine for Kingsmead

 



The class 03 station pilot waits for its next duty, with its match wagon, which requires a little work, thinking of some yellow and black striping on the ends and some suitable shunting junk on the top, a shunting pole and a few bits and bobs

Hi all again,

not much done, been mostly running the locos during the odd spare moment, in other news, myself and the other half went to see Mary Poppins at the theatre over the weekend which was most enjoyable.

 

As some may have noticed I have been looking in to tree grates for the base of some trees the main reason being that I am laying the pavements below are just some progress shots.

Kerb stones, that's another added to the list, must be honest, I have never done them before, time to think of a solution, Have thought about iron/steel kerb stones like in Bristol, but have never seen them in London myself, if they ever were used they were probably pulled up for scrap during the early 40's, thinking I might have to add a strip of painted card, cut down to make individual stones

I have added another tree and tree grate outside the cinema



I think I have managed to avoid the obvious step down on to the tube floor



Looking forward to some goodies this Christmas, so that should be my next post.

merry Christmas to all, and to all a happy new year
