Layout Description: My layout is N gauge and is a work in progress. It's not based on any real location and I intend to run a variety of trains i.e. American, Japanese and British. It will be strictly for fun. It's my first attempt at a layout and progress is slow.

Layout Description: My layout is a garden railway in '00' with a run of around 35 yards (a touch over 1.5 scale miles). It features a double track main line loop and is structurally about 25 feet from completion at time of writing.

The next section to be built will be the 5-platform station area. This section sits above the return tracks that are on a now completed lower level section, incorporating a holding loop in each direction. There will also be a branch line and a mail loop for my two operating mail coaches.

The stock I run stretches from pre-Second World War up to around 1980. I hope to be able to run the first complete loop by April, though recent financial pressures have made this far from a straightforward exercise!

My layout doesn't have a set time or place - i see a train, i buy it and run it. It is about 4 X 6 ft OO gauge and has two outer loops and a figure of eight in the middle. It does not have a baseboard yet but am hoping to get one when i get the room. I have four loco's and it runs on DC, but hoping to convert to DCC when I get the money/can be bothered.

Description: Atkinston is a layout that is still in the basic stages. It runs anything from 1920s/30s steam locomotives, through to the last days of steam, early diesels, 1970s and modern. Yes, it runs whatever I want it to run! At the moment, stock present are Flying Scotsman, Duchess of Sutherland, 101, 1203 and Virgin HST. It is based in a busy industrial town, much like Rochdale and Bolton. Station with three tracks and two platforms, one is an island platform. Based on the Hornby TrakMat but modified to my tastes. Please note, the picture shows a third siding on the edge of the board at the front, this is not present anymore. New picture coming soon.

Layout Description: Llandublo
A large OO scale layout (15ft by 10ft) based on the North Wales Coast line in the early 80s BR blue period. The layout features Conwy Castle and the Stephenson tubular bridge and has 2 main lines and 2 branch lines. The layout was started in April 2006 and I would say it's about 70% complete (Feb 2007).

Layout Description: Freelance 00 gauge attic layout. Inverted 2 line figure 8 track plan going round the loft with an operating well in the middle, as long as i don't fall down the loft hatch.
DC currently, and a work in progress [which you can see with photos of everything I do!] Youtube videos are available from the thread pages but this takes you to the latest one and you can find the rest from there. I'm trying to do as much as possible on a shoe string when it comes to the modelling side [ as the track and trains cost soo much and are vital] and have shared any things i have come up with in the spirit of the forums! Recent photo 14.2.07

Lee

 

Layout Description:  Lee is building his layout in a shed. It has 2 levels and is in a horse shoe shape. He has laid his track and has started to work on the scenery. He has used polystyrene to build up the levels which he has shaped to form hills and rocky outcrops. He is considering added a hinged section at the front to allow access to the rest of his shed.
