Ron how close is the edge of the flap to the ceiling  when its in the up position ? If its touching or pretty close then a simple hook and eye or a couple of cupboard door magnets will do the job

I wish you'd slow down - you're making me dizzy ..................:roll::roll::roll:

[Hi Ron,When the hinged section is up, just place of 2 x 2 or appropriately sized timber between the under side of the vertical hatch and the timber bearing that it rests on when in the down position. Very low tech but effective enough.Hope you can understand what I mean.CheersToto]


That ok as long as it does not stress the hinges or he will be out with a mini pw sthil saw to open the rail gaps every now and then lol

Alternatively a hook and eye, like these, they come in various sizes, B&Q do 50mm, 75mm & 100mm (2", 3" and 4") crude but effective.

Was down that way at Easter on Incleborough fields caravan club site.

Had a ride behind 9F Black Prince from Sheringham to Holt and back, we go there a few times each year, one of our favourite haunts.

And Peter look up Beeston Bump on google for a Norfolk hill...

Bit of a dilema! Trackplan was going well (see post 28) but I didn't like the large empty space at the front-centre. I tried one or two scenario's and ended up with this but it's not like the original Weybourne??


Old Layout.






New layout plan, but should I change??

Cheers
Ron

Sounds like a case of Rule No 1 rules Ron ;)

Enjoy your railway,

Where possible I like to push my track to the back and partly hide it with buildings, trees, whatever.

Hi Ron, I,ve just gone back to your original track plan and compared to Weybourne the real place it gives the flavour of the station but isn,t a slavish copy, so if you don,t like the track layout now you can see it in the flesh so to speak don,t be afraid to adapt- rule one applies! But be careful not to try and cram as much track in as you can find room for, I don,t think it would be right for what you are trying to achieve personally I would go back to the original concept of recreating Weybuorne as it is now look at the track layout on the real thing and try and replicate that within the constraints of the room you have available it is a real place and if you can replicate that, then I think you would be content with your railway.  But RULE ONE!
Cheers Pete.

Hi Ron

Nice layout coming here but, as already mentioned, the straight track doesn't do it justice and I feel it all needs to be on a very shallow curve for a more realistic look of Weybourne ( something like this);-



Also IMHO, don't put the extra sidings in as it will start to look like you've made the beginners mistake of laying too much track. Remember the shareholders and builders of the original wouldn't have spent a penny more than necessary, they worked out what was required, anticipated traffic etc, and laid just enough track to enable it - not a foot more.  Nice flowing gentle curves giving a sense of railway laid in the landscape, are much more prototypical and I feel your layout would be much better as a result...

Coming along nicely tho.....

Mike

I'd agree with Mike regarding the extra track but that's just my preference.

I like to see plenty of scenery with the railway slotted into it rather than the other way round (although much of Maxmill contradicts that preference !! :oops:)

The countryside was there first and the railways had to cope with what was already there.  Filling the baseboards with track turns that on it's head and, IMHO, it just doesn't look right except in the case of urban layouts. :roll::roll:

Another vote here to stick with the original plan but as Mike says put it on a slight curve, that front area gives you a nice area for scenics.

OK, I'll stick with the original plan! A curve would have good but the end curves were a problem when I tried it on the baseboard!
I have already wired a couple of pieces of track to test and all OK!!
More photo's later.....

Cheers
Ron

Personally, I would have saved myself all of the trouble and just got the missus to hold it up!
