Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Yes PNP. After about 10 mins of my end to end layout I got bored. :lol: There's bends at each end...does that count? :mrgreen: Thanks End2end Yeah I've never built an end to end layout as I like to watch trains go round, and round, and . . . But you're right , it doesn't stop us having trains go on...

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

The ballasting has made a huge difference to the look of the whole layout - looks great :D. I too am sneezing here as I type this, thinking I do not have CV either - can't decide if I'd rather have it and get it over with, or try to avoid it :?:. We're in lockdown in this family anyway as my daughte...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Lovely layout Dublo. I like the new additions. I know you are a stickler for running only items available as part of the range (a very interesting goal :D) but I'm wondering if you will weather those new items at all? That red is quite, err, bright . . . !

Re: New N gauge roundy roundy :D

This layout has sprung up without me noticing it :D. Looking very good so far . . . However, my Dapol class 56 died! :( I have had it for about five years. Until today it has been working perfectly on DCC (DCC Concepts Zen chip), but today it stopped and shorted out my layout, some spoke escaped fro...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I just looked back a couple of pages to find a track plan of your layout End2end, and found it is in fact a continuous circuit :? - will you have to change your name? :lol: Seriously, your track laying, and DCC connectivity seems to be progressing well - it's a while since I did all that on my old T...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

I'm gonna keep posting here (as well an NGRM) as somebody might be reading these posts (?). This forum really needs a 'like' button! I have some photos of some in-progress work on the layout 8) Firstly, the road now has some grass, weeds and leaf litter: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/497082986...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

In fact, now I've finished, erm, working from home for the day, I decided to change the colour of standing-man's jumper, so that it doesn't match the green of the shelter and benches and lamp post and ...  :lol: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49698383962_c2a59fd78a_b.jpg IMG_9635 by Pink Nosed ...

Excellent, PNP. Love the motorcyclist. Thanks Heda 8) And the motorcycle crosses the bridge over the railway (he will not be leaning against the wall when he is finally stuck in position :lol:): He will lean against the wall if the landrover approaches. :lol: Glencairn Yeah it will be tight . . . :...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Thanks Heda 8) I decided that now spring weather has definitely arrived, it was time to get rid of all that snow on my layout! An initial coat of watercolour brown has been applied wherever grass/undergrowth/trees will follow, and grey was washed over where rocks will be. (The building, standing-man...

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

So, who'd have thought it? Enforced working from home has provided me with more modelling time :D (only due to saving an hour round trip commute each day, honest :lol:). Anyway, my shelter really did need a roof - otherwise it wouldn't provide an awful lot of, well, shelter! So, first step was some ...

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

Thanks again for comments. A couple more small items have been constructed on my workbench . . . 1. a rubbish bin that I intend to put in my station halt shelter - from KS Laser Designs .

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

no more Beer after work and then at home every workday. It's rather irritating that, instead I can have a glass of red wine or two. Yeah, we all know we should be having everything in moderation, but sometimes it takes a push to make us do it! And I knew red wine was good for you - and I'm quite pa...

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

Thanks Mountain. I recently purchased a couple of inexpensive whitemetal items from Duncan Models and have now painted, and posed, them 8) First up, someone must have carelessly not put the dustbin lid on properly - as a cheeky seagull is trying its luck to see what goodies are inside! https://live....

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

Some more progress on the little station halt. A grain of wheat bulb (same type as a gas lamp I have purchased for the platform outside the shelter) has been installed in the centre of a false ceiling (which has been blacked out to prevent light escaping): https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/4961852...
