Re: Bath Queen Square - my version

Hi Just caught up on this whole thread. Amazing layout. The tube work for the points is stunning in itself! Really love the Green Park Station. Very realistic. Was it really known as Queen Square, or is that part of your 'back story'? Echo the comments about not including the river. A couple of brid...

Re: Clifton 009 Board 2 Llanwyke

Excellent stuff. This is really coming together. Having the sidings there really puts the slate mine into context.

I really like the wooden goods platform too. I might steal that idea!

Cheers

Re: middleton peak

40 inches by 24 inches...quite small, but i will be able to concentrate on scenics more on a smaller layout as i can store it easier than a bigger one. That's exactly my philosophy. At first I thought my layout would be too small, but seeing how long things take and how slow progress can be, I'm we...

Re: Beginning 009

Hi There

Great start. I love the loco.

I've always fancied a dabble in 009 as I've seen some lovely layouts in that scale. The Micro Layout Scrapbook site you mentioned is excellent for ideas and inspiration.

For the time being I'll satisfy myself with watching yours develop!

Cheers

Re: Long Newton: BR 1980ish - 1993 in N

Hi Very nice tidy looking layout you have there. I like the trackplan too, plenty of scope for operation, and I like the fact that the main loops aren't just an oval, but have an interesting shape. I wish I had done that on mine! What sort of scenery are you going for? I'm guessing that the terminus...

Re: Stumpy's loft.

Hi Stumpy Just read this thread right thru. Very interesting. I like all the step-by-step bits That station with all the arches and canopy is great. You must have the patience of a saint to make all those arches. Very impressive. BTW, Bath Green Park is/was a real live station. Its now the site of o...

Cheers Keiron.

The backscene is one of my own photos. Its of a beautiful valley in Wales called Cwm Cywarch (translated: Valley of Hemp)

I've stretched it horizontally to make it fit, and faded it to make it look distant and less sharp.



Cheers

Re: Trecarreg - Dave's Quarry Layout in N

I love this, its amazing! where did you get the big chunk of polystyrene from? Cheers. Its styrofoam. I got it from ebay, but there are numerous suppliers on the net. Its stonger than polystyrene, and easier to work with. Its denser too and doesn't break up into little balls, so you can carve it or...

Re: Trecarreg - Dave's Quarry Layout in N

Hi Some interesting progress to post! Work has been slow, so i've not posted lately. I've spent a fair amount of time servicing / repairing locos. In my spare time at work I've resumed work on the controller. 'Phase one' is complete, which has two channels. When its finished it will have four. This ...
