Our layout. Broadley (New update 24/1/11)

Postby tonycougar » Sat Apr 19, 2008 12:35 am

Its early days yet but I think I am more or less settled on the track layout, so I thought it was about time I posted some pics.....so I was gonna try, but I can't figure out how?
Somebody give me a clue.

Hey TonyCougar.

If you have a photobucket account, then upload your photos there. If you havent got one , then its probably worth getting one as its pretty useful for uploading your pics here. Its free and the signup is pretty painless.

Once you have uploaded your photos, you will see a few links underneath each thumbnail in your album. If you copy the one that is the '[IMG]' link (just click on the link and it will copy it to your clipboard automatically). Then you just paste that link in here on a new line in your message.

Hope that helps !!! Lookin forward to seeing your pics !

Hoping this works.

The accident in front of the fire station was due to my lads weird imagination. I wonder where he gets it from!!!!?

The ivy up the side of that fire station looks great!

At least your lad has got the authorities involved in that accident there quickly! :D
cheers, Mark.

Thanks. I have though back and I think it is not just ordinary tea but something like chinese tea. We were given it as a gift but it tasted horrible. That was years ago, but I found it and thought that would be useful for modelling.

I took some upto date pictures today with the intention of putting them on tonight, but I've gone and left the camera in the loft and everybody has gone to bed now so I can't go get it. (The ladder makes to much noise.)
So maybe tomorrow night.

Finally remembered to bring the camera down from the loft.
Here's some more up to date pics.

Broadley Station and yards
Image

Broadley again different angle, showing the scrap yard I was instructed to build on the corner!!!

Image


And yes I know the bridge is wonky (its just plonked there for now) and the goods yard platform isn't sat right, and there is chicken wire showing etc etc.....but it is very far from completion.

Our 2 new Bachmann steamers passing Sooten Dale

Image

And lastly, a view from Broadley signal box looking over to the engine sheds

HeHe. I couldn't resist it. I was gonna do a scene where he loses his head after sticking it outa the window, but thought it would be a bit bad taste.
