Re: Reusable, modular layout base in N-gauge

Hi Alan Well done on making the topography look very believable, it definitely looks as if the railway and road are later additions in the natural landscape. The water also looks quite good, however I've heard of people having problems with the varnish drying when a lot is poured in one go; cracking...

Re: wahooo

Nice work Kye. I like the scratch-building you have been doing.

Are going going to have boards around the side to support the cardboard retaining walls?

Re: Cramdin Yard

Great work.

I like the left over stone which left in the bottom of them, a nice detail to add.

Hi Liam

The concrete looks good, I like the weathering done on it.

I agree that those blue pipes seem to fit quite well too.

Keep up the good work!

I was going to say that the ripped up track does actually look like a convincing prototype ripped up yard.

Good look with the next layout ;)

Hi Dave

Great work on the traverser mechanism, great little bit of ingenuity there. :P

I'm guessing you will have to keep the thread pretty greased up for continued use.

Re: Starlingford

Hi Gavin

I haven't looked at the layout in a long time and I have to say it looks great. It's interesting to see so many trains photographed on the layout too.

The foliage on the embankment (pictured page 13) looks superb, cracking job.

Hi Mick

The track weathering looks great, I also like the blackness of the colliery area.

Is that stone circular structure in the church picture a tunnel vent?

Re: Danny's Layout [Flaxengate] (N Gauge)

Thanks for the comments guys. You won't have to wait to long to see a train go through beerandpies, I've taken a video and will upload it soon. Yes, that is one of the scars, the bedding planes of the limestone visible from where the track has been cut through the rock. I did some more natural ones ...

Re: Danny's Layout [Flaxengate] (N Gauge)

I haven't had that much time lately to get on with the layout, hence lack of progress and me not being on here much. Here are some photos of what I have managed to get done. Some of the rock textures are plaster some are pulp made from loo-roll, PVA and water. All of the countryside scenic part of ...

Re: My N Gauge plans

Interesting plan you have there Matt. You've got the running length of two double track loops in the space of a single double track loop.

Can't really help with the sidings but a lot of people recommend headshunts.

Hi Southernboy You seem to be making good steady progress :D. The indicator board looks very well planned, it should pay off. Your power to the rails technique is good, very neat unlike the ones I did. I'll Just warn you of one mistake I made. I soldered the wires on the bottom of the flexi track li...

The photo of the valley and the viaduct looks great, any particular technique to the waterfall? I wouldn't mind a little fall like that on my layout.

Re: Resurrected N Gauge Layout

Hi Chris

I really like the look of the layout, using the same stone texture for the tunnels and bridge give it a sense of an area.
