Afraid so. Definately something that will be built up over time.

It is only a small part of the layout.

The jury is still out there. I can't quite bring myself to wire the new sidings yet. Someone even suggested a counrty cricket ground.

Far from it, my friend, but thanks for the comments.

It's not bad Olly, but it's in the wrong country.

Move your butt over onto the correct side of the Irish Sea.

To be honest, I built the layout over here to keep it away from infadel masses that are rumoured to live across there. A sort of giant moat, if you will.

Also there are problems with the immigration department.

I've been trying to select invisible text for the last two pages :D

Really good work olly, just enjoyed reading through the thread and as the others said, the smooth curves and long trains look great. They are going to sell out of hbl at your local wilkos tho ;) I'd go for the dirty great engine shed, more display space for your locos, more operation. We're tearing down our wood to put a pot bank on it! :twisted:

Looking good.
I must say curved backboards are definitely the future :)

Tasteless tat!

Thanks, big fellow!

My friend at school had one of those. He got expelled.

Seriously: thanks for the interest. Still not sure about engine shed, though. Need more convincing. I estimate I will be finalising that section in about 5 years, so there is not much rush.

Hiatus is over: work will resume soon.

Just to recap: this is where we are now:

Video 2

I was suprised that after a quick track clean, everything still worked fine.

It's very noisy! :shock:
I'll have to watch it again with the sound turned down :?

And what's with the mimimal ' * ' ? Is this some sort of new art movement statement ? pretentious vous ?

btw - that's my Victor Medrew side kicking in ... :)
Not that I'm schizophrenic or anything :)

Mr Meldrew,

Both inconveniences have been dealt with. Try and get some more sleep, I have heard it can help. :wink:

Hang Loose,

The points have been removed from the curves. It seemed to break the line of sight.

The idea is not to have a ruined terminus, old and grotty, slowly being eaten up by the vegetation and undergrowth. An excuse to have a vast simple landscape that the trains can meander through, while still being a feature.

Anyway: here is the traditional mock up, to give you the idea.

Layout looking extremely good.
Have you had any problems getting Irish stock or buildings? Murphy seems to be the only 'stockist' I can find who does Irish locos and carriages. I have used a lot of Metcalfe stone buildings on mine, with a few scratch built. What are you going to use?
Sorry about all the questions - keep up the good work.

I have started some more of the "first fix" scenery. It is a bit untidy at the moment, but I am sure you get the idea.

It still needs lots more work, but it is nice to see it taking shape. I will hopefully get some more work done over the next few days.

Cheers
