Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

I'm looking forward to seeing the results of that water... I've got plans for a river and some sea with waves - eventually!

Re: N Gauge oval in the countryside

Those photos are great, until the last few, you wouldn't know there is a bit gap in the middle:)
I really like the combination of the river and the farm yard and fencing...

Re: Plans for the new loft...

:D Thanks E2E, I read about your challenges earlier today. I think I'm getting around that by using flexi at the moment, but it is certainly something I'll bear in mind!!

Re: Plans for the new loft...

As I alluded to in my previous post on my in construction thread, I have been playing with station and yard designs on the back of getting hold of new books about the DN&S railway. It would appear that my plans for the yard are nothing like real life... ACTUAL https://apel2q.dm2301.livefilestore...

Re: Not Sure if this counts as planning or under contruction...

Hello All, Not a huge amount of progress to report. I've been spending more time on paperwork and planning than building in the existing loft... I did get a set of three dapol 20t tank kits which I am building at the moment - experimenting with painting techniques and stuff. https://befona.dm2301.li...

Re: Returning to model railway and saying hello

Hi and Welcome.
I too am returning after many years away (like 25 or so).
The changes are incredible and the possibilities so much improved on my earlier trainset layout.
Good luck for the development of your layout, always plenty of help on here...

Re: Elliston - loft layout

Thought: what if you had 12' of main scenic board on one side, inside the rafters, with the other side plain track and a couple of long storage loops (holding two trains each) *beyond* the rafters? I really like that idea - filed away for the future! There are lots of folk on here who manage to get...

Re: Not Sure if this counts as planning or under contruction...

I think you're very brave putting a good chunk of effort into something that you'll probably have to relocate. However you'll no doubt put a lot of skills to the test & will be able to apply the things you learned when you do it all over again. Water leaks - that's rotten luck. Onwards & up...

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

They look really good, I'm tempted by kits, but not brave enough yet.
I am sure the time will come!!
Can't wait to see the finished, weathered versions.
