Re: Locks & Narrowboats

Thanks Bikey, Something I never considered, maybe I should have done some research first! :oops: To quote wikipedia: "The cill, also spelled sill, is a narrow horizontal ledge protruding a short way into the chamber from below the upper gates. Allowing the rear of the boat to "hang" o...

Re: RLR: Robs Loft Railway

The landscaped areas/buildings on my layout are freelance, and not based on any actual location. However, I am attempting to model Haworth Station (on the KWVR), a place that I have visited several times. I had previously modelled part of the station (the entrance with ticket office and gift shop) u...

Re: Vale of Askham - OO Gauge

Your layout is what backscenes and low-relief buildings were made for, Yorky! I live in an old terraced house and looking up at what I would call my picture rail , as opposed to dido rail, I can see that a narrow layout would be totally visible. :) (I have my layout in the loft.) http://static.dyp.i...

Re: RLR: Robs Loft Railway

This is an update on my loft layout. I prefer not to have a ballasted "permanent way", as I like to re-arrange my layout at a whim! Any ballast is of the foam variety. There are 3 themed "landscaped" corners, ye olde village with castle, harbour and coal/slate mine. I have recent...
