Re: MY NEXT POSSIBLE PROJECT (8' x 2' PORTABLE GOODS DEPOT LAYOUT)

Depends if you want to go for a prototype location or a freelance plan, for the freelance plan the "timesaver" concept gives plenty of operating potential (pencilled in as part of my future plans), the concept is described here, http://www.wymann.info/ShuntingPuzzles/sw-timesaver.html and...

MY NEXT POSSIBLE PROJECT (8' x 2' PORTABLE GOODS DEPOT LAYOUT)

Hi guys. Now that PETERSDALE is nearly finished I'm looking forward to a possible project for the two 4' x 2' boards I use for my running in track. I'll be using them end to end making it 8' x 2' finished dimensions. I've looked through all possibilities and think a small goods depot with a couple o...

If it's like our local stations Kettering and Wellingborough it'll cost an arm and a leg even on Sundays.

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Thanks for the comments Mikem64 and Glencairn. Much appreciated. The area at the back and side of the Engine shed was actually the first part of the scenery that I did on the layout. It must have been a few years ago. Just booked my train tickets for Warley. I'm going on Sunday again this year as it...

Re: Great Electric Train show

There's a replacement event at the Motor museum, I'm going along mainly to see if it was the venue or the organisers who made it such a crush. Putting the must see layout immediately at the top of the escalators seemed to me to lack any sort of imagination. I'm surprised 'elf 'n safety didn't veto ...

Re: Great Electric Train show

It's pretty local to me, about 30 minutes drive. Wife dropped me at the venue and then went off shopping. It was very comfortable. I had no problems seeing any of the layouts. I tend to go to most of the exhibitions on a Sunday. I was there from about 1.30 to closing time. I got myself a pre-owned B...

Thanks BrightonMan.

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

I made it to the Great Electric Train Show on Sunday at Milton Keynes. Another good exhibition with a good variety of layouts in various scales etc. Pretty comfortable all afternoon with plenty of room to move about and see the layouts. I was there from 1.30 to 4. There were quite a few large layout...

Train Truckers

Anyboby watching Train Truckers on Yesterday channel? I've been recording them and watching them later. Seems like each programme is the same format only with a different loco and destination. I'm loving the 'What if ' computer generated accidents though, especially when the Tamping Machine ended up...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Track plan looks good. Got PETERSDALE track plan from Mr Freezer's book.
I will follow with interest. Your build will remind me of building my layout shed and PETERSDALE no doubt.
Good luck with it.

Hi Brighton. The locos were safely delivered to TMC last week when we were up at Goathland on holiday. I resisted the temptation to buy anything while I was in the shop thank god. The guy did show me 2 Ivatt 2-6-2s to show me the difference. They were the same Bachmann models. I think the vaue weath...
