Re: Reusable, modular layout base in N-gauge

This layout is not one I have been following much. (Too small for me.) N Gauge in the landscape is rarely done well. Some layouts have lots of trackwork, because they have the space. Therefore imo spoiling the effect. This is different. (Still too small :lol: ) but it is nice to see a 'right balanc...

Re: Slightly

I have now removed the moulded handrails and added some brass ones. Just needs a lick of paint now (isn't it funny that you prefer the brass finish but just know you've got to paint it!) I also note that I keep bending the front steps every time I touch it. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/503486...

Re: Slightly

Thanks Mr Ex-Pat.
I'll do a video of 70021 when I'm happy with the smoke deflector handrails.

Re: Slightly

Good to hear from you as well Geoff. The shed roof is holding up well. The layout is running quite well with a few hiccups here and there. I seem to have drifted into a steam presence on the layout which I am currently enjoying (must be going mad). Buying cheap old model loco's and seeing if I can m...

Re: Slightly

I've been looking at the last picture of "Morning Star" (above) and I'm not happy with the hand rail moulding on the smoke deflectors.
So a visit to Peters Spares and some handrail knobs and wire have been ordered!

Re: Edgware GN,

I agree that the hand rails make a big difference to a loco.
One of thoses jobs you don't want to do but you need to do!
The loco is looking rather good and I look forward to further updates.

Re: Slightly

As mentioned before I obtained a BR Std Britannia class loco Morning Star from a car boot sale. This model dates from about 1981 and is a ringfield tender driven model. I decided it would become a project (my first steam engine!) New motor added courtesy of https://www.strathpefferjunction.com/hornb...

Impressive scene.
I do like the fact that there's a little story to go with it.

Re: Slightly

It's been quite some time since I updated this thread! The layout is still up and running. I thought I'd show you what's been happening around the turntable area. Having acquired a number of old Hornby tender drive loco's from car boot sales I have got them working and have added detail to them and ...
