Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

:mrgreen: Ah now, time to show off my plans for the 009 railway on my layout. I am now a real fan of narrow gauge myself; albeit in 7mm scale :D Nice to have multiple gauges in the layout - but it looks like you taking this further and also going multinational? French and Anglo-Irish? :shock: Well i...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Ah now, time to show off my plans for the 009 railway on my layout. The 009 railway is inspired by the railway in Barneville-Carteret (which was closed when we visited) but runs from Carteret where the harbour is and where the 'Brasserie Cotentin' building is, the former station in fact which was co...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Last up of the things I got in my package is a third coach for Stepney! Believe it or not I bought Stepney in Derbyshire while on holiday in 2006, he was £45 in the model railway layout room shop at the midland railway centre Butterly as we were on our way home and passing and went for a look around...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Also from the package and next to come down the line is my new (old) Lima class 50 'Revenge' in BR blue. 'Revenge' because my grandmother's father was on HMS Revenge in the second world war. 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg To go with it I got two more railroad range container wagons to go with the solitary one I ...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Time for a new update. First of all I'd just like to say that most of these pics are from around new years, but I've been ill with a bad chest infection and on antibiotics that made me feel dizzy and sick, at the same time I have had an allergic reaction, according to my doctor, in my fingers (you w...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Good sense to eliminate the redundant crossover. The cliffs have a dramatic appeal and make for a nice view block. Still amazed how you got three mains into your space. Thanks, I'm planning on using the craft brewery as a station as well for a narrow gauge line in the centre of the board which will...

Re: Hornby Steampunk models

I 'm really confused to the poor reaction of people to the buildings. If you are into steampunk its got to be a good starting point in this hobby, you are given a model lightly garnished with bits as opposed to buying a fully finished 'real life' style building which you might not have felt like mod...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Just some parting shots of the bridge and tunnel, they look so rough at the moment and I look forward to the point where I can tie them into the landscape better and sort out all the loose ends. Oh and the first one is proof it'll hold up an HGV :wink: 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg 5.jpg That's all I got ...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Next came the bridge deck itself which I constructed from buts of the Metcalfe platform kit I had spare which worked out reasonably well although it is skewed because of the cliff shape and while single platform lengths were sufficiently long enough to do the tunnel side of the bridge the other side...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Now, word on the street is that there has been some scenic progress! I would tell you not believe all that you hear, but in this case the rumour is true. In fact construction had begun on the road bridge and tunnel at one end of the cliff, first off I made a fairly plain portal that will be mostly h...

Re: Beaglington-On-Sea 00 gauge in 6ft by 4ft

Well done. Have you changed your sidings track plan ? I have, I have changed it slightly to allow two siding roads for goods and then a seperate turnout leads to the loco fuelling road as i feel like it gives me two additional isolated sidings/storage areas on the layout, which is handy considering...

Re: New Range announcements

Preordered the Christmas wagon as usual and the year wagon as its a nice blue. I also ordered 'Merton' as I've missed all the new LBSC terriers so far, I'd love leadenhall but no funds and can't get Brighton and Merton as they are both due in July. So opting for the limited edition one...lol, jk, th...
