Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

I suppose we've turned this into the main station rather than the middle station! (though its still centrally located on the line) Mountain: I do agree with you about needing facilities to coal/water/fuel engines, I was planning on having a water tower just outside the shed, and I've added another s...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Yes. That is a headshunt at the bottom. Well done! :mrgreen: Got it! Hahaha I think we may be homing (or honing) in. As you have it the headshunt is the longer of the two pieces of straight bottom left and the shorter the siding. It's not that usable. The other detail, if I've read correctly, is th...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

http://i.imgur.com/4Zp6QiS.jpg Couldn't quite get the transverser to operate in the same fashion as when it faced the other way. So I binned it in favor of plain sidings. I think I got the purpose of the headshunt this time around, although it is small. I'd like to have an actual transverser, like ...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

See the track in yellow at the top that Emmettman added a few posts above. He has added a headshunt. He didn't add one to the bottom sidings in yellow though. Hope this explains things. He added a trailing type headshunt. Headshunt I would use have facing points for convenience. So in essence a sid...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Tadaaah! http://i.imgur.com/roNW2AE.jpg in the back we have the transverser/green track, which would pivot at the far end and link up to the three tracks in the center. I may have to revisit that as I don't think they are quite long enough to hold much besides a 2-3 car DMU or a loco and two coaches...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Go to the following site http://www.newmodellersshop.co.uk/dapol-kits.htm I believe they are the sponsors to this forum. (I stand to be corrected.) They have a few locomotive kits that you may be interested in. Glencairn Definitely some things in there worth a look! Some restorations and whatnot, t...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

What have you done to your curves, there, to get inside 2' 6"? Chris, I had the grid spacing incorrectly, that was showing ~19.64" per cube, its 4ft wide, my mistake :lol: Hi redline. A Heritage Line. A great use for Airfix/Dapol kits in the yard/shed area. All not quite running and waiti...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

somewhat (considerably) revised... Made it quit a bit more simple, platform intended to hold 4 coaches + loco. http://i.imgur.com/6epqOzl.jpg As I stated I'd really like to have an engine shed area, but I'll just make that its own little add on / diorama. This allows for running of two trains one &q...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Either way, I'd like the whole thing to be central to a room so that most of it is accessible, except maybe one side. That's popular in America, where they generally have more room, and more viewing sides is an advantage there's regularly going be an audience. (Which for exhibition layouts can chan...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Hmmm that does sound interesting, I'll have to have another go in anyrail tomorrow and see what I can come up with. The U Shape provides the ability to have two station areas and I like the lift out viaduct idea, it allows for continuous running if I want to, or I can just lift it out and run statio...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Input from others is always lovely, Hello and welcome redline. I'm going to take you at your word... First thought when faced with a solid board layout (or a Devil's tablecloth, though yours is more compact than many) is how much access room is available/needed around the outside of the layout, and...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Spent some time tonight drawing up a first draft of a track plan... I used R3 curves so that *hopefully* I don't have any issues with the N15 and its fiddly front bogey. http://i.imgur.com/ckDiJMZ.jpg The idea is to use the station/shed side as a very detailed side and the other side much more empty...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Hi Jeremy I don't know how long you've been Stateside but quite a few UK Heritage lines have a significant diesel presence, both DMUs and locos. A high proportion of volunteers grew up with first generation diesels, and they are very useful for running early morning and evening services whilst the ...

Re: Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line

Alright had to give myself some more time to browse Hattons and fleabay for some motive power ideas. Being a "heritage" line I realize it should comprise mostly of steam engines, but I've grown fond of rail cars and some (and I stress the SOME) diesel engines. Here is what I'm currently lo...

Planning: OO Gauge Heritage Line (The S.H.H.R)

Updated: 27/12/16 Finally named and backstoried the thing after two weeks! Set in the southern part of Herefordshire, The Southern Hereford Heritage Railway (S.H.H.R) runs along the former Hereford, Ross and Gloucester line 10.5 miles from Ross-on-Wye to Grange Court where it has a connection to the...
