Re: Retro's N Gauge: BAD LUBECK: DB in the 1970s

I have painted, weathered and located the turntable -- as it will form the centrepiece of the layout it made sense to install it in the most convenient place, then work the trackplan around it. The turntable is by PECO. http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i150/ramillies/N%20GAUGE%20PROJECT/TURNTABLE1....

Re: Retro's N Gauge: BAD LUBECK: DB in the 1970s

I have completed the woodwork for the upper circuit, here is the KATO trackwork in place, with the super elevated curves. Trains run around this very nicely indeed. http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i150/ramillies/N%20GAUGE%20PROJECT/2204001.jpg http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i150/ramillies/N%20G...

Re: Retro's N Gauge: BAD LUBECK: DB in the 1970s

Trackwork will be: 1. Upper circuit: KATO set track with superelevated curves -- a high speed railway with catenary 2. Lower circuit: a rambling rural line, PECO CODE 80, with BAD LUBECK roundhouse as the centrepiece. I found this lot in a box in the attic, from a long abandoned project of years ago...

Retro's N Gauge: BAD LUBECK: DB in the 1970s

Hi everyone -- a new project to report. 1. The Idea With the virtual completion of MARSHFIELD with ELY BRIDGE, my 00 gauge loft layout, I've had a hankering to have a crack at something completely different. A couple of years ago I travelled to Germany for a railtour behind preserved V200 class dies...

Re: Walthers Blast Furnace kit - for Bilston steel works

I agree these Walthers kits are absolutely superb. Here is the Walthers Coke Oven and Quench Tower in situ on my layout (kit ref 933-2972). http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i150/ramillies/2011%20model%20railway%20pics/steelworks2.jpg UK supplier of all things Walther: http://www.modeljunction.info/...

Re: MARSHFIELD WITH ELY BRIDGE: nearing completion ...

This is my final update on NRM. The thread has been going for nearly seven years, and the layout is now complete. It seems pointless adding more and more photos of the same subject. The last area to finish off was the industrial section. http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i150/ramillies/2013%20model%...

Re: MARSHFIELD WITH ELY BRIDGE: nearing completion ...

Work on the last bit of un-modelled layout has commenced. When this has finished I will be closing this thread, I think 7 years is long enough. http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i150/ramillies/2013%20model%20railway%20pics/pipe1.jpg http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i150/ramillies/2013%20model%20rai...

Re: Rayne St, Fictional N-Gauge Layout - Update 22/01/13

Just found this layout for the first time.

It is delightful. Some of the detailing is first class.

I couldn't cope with N gauge, far too small - more power to you!
