Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all Ackers, I would like to say that the light bleeding from the roof line was intentional, but no it wasn't. If it helps with the overall picture then I shall not do anything to alter it. The next section to be worked on will be Weldon station itself this will be a major piece with its two bu...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all I managed to spend some time on Little Weldon over the weekend. Firstly I started casting some tiles for my next Linka build, I am planning on building a couple of 1930's Metroland "Ideal Homes" very similar to the ones that my Grandparents lived in. The Bay Window will be the mo...

Re: Bored With Your Model Railway?

Hello I hope you are in a better state of health at the moment Mountain. That must have been a somewhat difficult period for you. I must say that as soon as I step into the middle of Little Weldon my stress level decreases rapidly. It has taken me two years to get this far and I get a warm glow when...

Re: Ello’s track layout

Hello Ello A very interesting idea, I like the decision of getting the lower mainlines down first. That will give you chance to run some trains whilst the other sections of layout are worked upon. Bufferstops suggestion of working a section at a time is also a good one it helps to break up the aspec...

Re: Michaela's Layout

Hello Michaela Looks like you are off to flying start there, I was wondering where you were. Lo and behold you've been beavering away up in the loft. This current layout looks as if you have addressed areas that you were not entirely happy with before, whilst still retaining the same basic idea. I'm...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all One thing I like to do at this time of year is to look at Hornby Dublo catalogues, I think this must stem from childhood Christmases looking at the new Hornby catalogue. Things seemed to slow down a little at Binns Road for 1960 after 1959s flood of new items. Only two new locomotives this...

Re: What was your first model train?

Hello all I can not remember a time when I didnt have a train of some kind. Ive had a few firsts over the years. The very first was a Playcraft Clockwork 0-4-0 and some wagons HO scale. When the spring inevitably broke I all ready had a Black 0-4-0 battery powered Lego loco with a coach and a couple...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all Thankyou for your comments on Little Weldon it is all ways appreciated. PnP I have found that like many things in this wonderful hobby, once you start with lighting you want to light everything. I guess the secret is not to overdo it there is the risk that may happen on Weldon itself. I am...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all I have been reflecting on how much Little Weldon has evolved over the course of this year. The first major item of scenery was the development and landscaping of the Locomotive Yard. This was completed at the end of January, following on from this was the painting and Cobble laying of the ...

Re: The North Western Region (NWR)

Looking good there Whitehouse, a flying start. I must admit I do have a fondness for layouts which pay homage to Rev Awdry. Would you be planning to run a certain blue Tank Engine as well. Looking forward to watching your layout develop.
