Re: Spearestone, Kent coast in N

I'll second that comment.

The scenery is coming along great, quite rugged, and the variation of flocks etc works convincingly.

The chimney for exhaust from the tunnel is a nicely observed detail too, it's one of those things not often reproduced on model railways.

Re: Spearestone, Kent coast in N

I echo the comments of Skyblue, the cliffs are really impressive. And plans for the Pullmans are intriguing - I'm looking forward to developments there.

Are you going to include any examples of CIWL carriages in the rake?

Re: Spearestone, Kent coast in N

Definitely a layout to watch - the sheer scale of the cliffs dwarfing the tracks is quite stunning.

Just doing a catch-up here and good to see some action Crispy - glad you out-thwarted the invasion by diabolical contorted-neck chickens :o As to your station name board: It reminds me of the opening sequence to Fawlty Towers where every week the letters were arranged differently to form variations ...

Re: St. Mary Hoo - a clapped out SR branch terminus in P4

Good to see St. Mary Hoo is alive and kicking Simon!

Some unusual developments there, and I quite like the chilling resonance from times-past that accompanies them.

Your layout is one that definitely stands out from the crowd.

Re: Penzance themed modular layout in N gauge

Lovely work Matthias. Like the rest of your layout you've certainly caught a sense of authenticity here. In particular the colours you use blend everything together quite pleasingly.

Re: Penzance themed modular layout in N gauge

Excellent colouring on that corrugated iron roof Matthias, very convincing. " ... whether I should cover the overall roof of the trainshed with sheeting ... or just leave the girder construction ... " You mean leave just the girders to make it easier to view inside? If so, that is a bit of...

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

Excellent work there Steve - your scenics are really convincing.

Will you be able to take the layout with you when you move or will it be a new start?

Re: London-Flat-Friendly Mini-Layout

Hello Dave, Firstly welcome to the forum and also welcome back to railway modelling. Just a thought - but have you considered N gauge? I know you have some legacy stuff from childhood, but before you get completely stuck in it may be worth looking at what other options are available for modelling in...

Re: Penzance themed modular layout in N gauge

Great to see an update Matthias, the layout is really looking impressive. In particular the overview in the first picture really caught my eye, it looks totally authentic and convincing. In the second picture of the station, I notice some wall-mounted lamps. Are they home made or a retail purchase (...

Re: St. Mary Hoo - a clapped out SR branch terminus in P4

Hello Simon, the extension plans look interesting, especially: "... the baseboards to flow and have a rounded look." I was wondering whether if you get moment it would be possible to have a few photos of the overview of the layout (the whole board in one or two shots) perhaps? I'd understa...

Re: Birmingham New Street in P4

It looks as grim and depressing as I remember the real thing back in the mid 70s - congratulations on capturing the essence of the place so well! I have to say that your Birmingham New Street is probably the furthest anyone can get from the popular bucolic / quint industrial scenarios / depots / tha...
