Re: C and O station as it was by CandO

Cheers ParkeNd, shall have a look at that :-) In other news I seem to have hit a little snag with the planning stage. In amongst the new material I found the other week were some plans of a couple of the buildings complete with dimensions. Great I thought, should make the builds a little easier BUT....

Re: CandO Workbench

Hi Dad-1, I'm thinking the next building may be either another small one - the Porters Room - or something a bit bigger like the Timber Framed Warehouse......I'm undecided as yet though..... However I think the next main project is the planning and assembly of the baseboards (Especially now the trai...

But time is running out - this has already taken well over 200 hours and not yet finished. :o


Forgive me if I sound dumb ParkeNd but do you log the time you spend doing a build?? :shock:

Wagon liveries

So I have just been browsing shops and ebay looking for coal wagons pre-WW1 era. Now bear in mind I'm a beginner to all this but I've been looking for some with the L&YR livery on them but I haven't found anything - not one. GW - yes, LMS - yes, NE - yes and others to boot including countless pr...

Re: PNP's October - December competition thread - Sector Pla

I intend to use interlocking tubes to provide a method of accurately aligning for each track exit. As I use DCC, power will be permanently fed to all 5 tracks with a simple plug/socket so I can disconnect/reconnect when I lift it out and turn 180 degrees. But I am getting ahead of myself :oops: - a...

Re: C and O station as it was by CandO

I have now purchased the wood for the baseboards so construction shall begin soon!! :D In the meantime I was thinking of just marking out the foot squares on the board surface and then transferring the layout map onto the boards as a guide to where things will go. Have already got some flexitrack an...

Re: CandO Workbench

Finally got round to finishing the N scale Gents Toilet Block. Not too bad but once again I think I've made a hash of the coping stones and, if I'm being honest, I deffo think this will be a rebuild once I'm at a better level :D Maybe I should've started with summat larger!! Hehehe :mrgreen: P105078...

Re: C and O station as it was by CandO

So PnP / Parkend - can you confirm then that I'd be better using 2nd, 3rd and 4th radius curves on the right hand side and 2nd and 3rd on the left - ignoring 1st radius curves altogether?? The layout will primarily be running steamers with coal wagons and maybe a two coach passenger with steam engi...

Re: Elevated track construction

Thanks for that Bigmet. From your reply and my reply to Emettman above I'm thinking 10mm foamboard may be sufficient tbh but like you say I may benefit from a little experimentation :D How long and wide will this bridging section be (the scenery falling away from the track, rather than the track cl...

Re: ParkeNd's Autumn Competition attempt - Railway Cottages

Love it, superb bit of modelling. The gutter zig zagging it's way down the side of the building is great, as is the paint finish. The prototype building guttering and drainpipes were organised that way up to about 1975 - I now have coloured pictures of it but can't post them because they are in a n...
