The layout is completely ...

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge - Complete (ish)

Well a big Hi to everyone and an apology for not posting sooner or in more detail as the layout moved along.....there was no lack of mojo for the modelling, only work and life getting in the way, stupid illnesses and a new Grand-daughter to fit into the mix which was obviously the best bit of all! I...

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Thanks mate and yes in retrospect I think you are right, I think I was trying to be too clever as there is a path on the other side of the stone wall which I wanted to light......but yes methinks they'll need to be turned round to make more sense so thanks for the comment...this is what I have alway...

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Hi again, So following on from the previous post...this is just to give you an idea about the steps and the different levels from the house backs to the roadway.....it's far from perfect but will certainly "make do" from my operating position which is a good 5 feet to the right of the loca...

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Thanks for that John you're a pal I would have never seen that....and your solution is spot on as I can't put a supporting pillar underneath as there is no room between the tracks...thanks again....I appreciate it and will get to that v. soon. At the moment I am just making some stone steps cut out ...

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Hi again, Just a little update, the oil fuel tanks are going in and although there is a whole lot of detailing to do (Hoses etc) I am happy with the location of them and the nice little diorama I have built around them. As ever although this isn't the greatest modelling in the world, I tend to use a...

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Hi Everyone, Well it's been a long time since an update but that's Christmas and New Year for you, there's always something getting in the way. So the past couple of months have been spent making yet more houses for the main street.....yet more terraced house fronts and shops to complete the long ro...

Hi and just to say what a great job you have done, I have really enjoyed catching up with this thread and the track plan is a delight, lots of operational interest in there.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Ha ha don't you worry mate it's a fair point and to be fair the fence should probably go behind the water tower as well!!

No need to apologise fella, it's all good....

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Hi Everyone and a little Saturday morning update for you... To take a break from the tedium of installing and painting plaster arches I have made a start on the signal box area by the main yard....it's the usual stuff with a Metcalfe kit and some little random buildings. The rocky outcrop in the bac...

Re: Parsons Cross Junction - Garage Dwelling In OO Gauge

Thanks Paul... Thanks for the positive vibes, the wiring is a bit of a bugger, not my forte as you can no doubt tell.....it all starts out nice and neat and then by the end well, you can see the results! Luckily everything is at least correctly colour coded and if I have problems I should be able to...
