Now if you'd posted 'overall' shots of the layout as most do it probably wouldn't have done it justice!!! :shock:

Excellent modelling, coupled with excellent photography. You've really captured the idea of daily life going on with great angles and seperate little scenes - the one of the workmen with the blurred train is fantastic!!

Great modelling, you'd NEVER guess it was basically a trackmat job :wink:

Cheers for that, i do love photography, havent the greatest camera, and some of those are off my phone but i like to get in really close to get a feel for the atmosphere.

i did think of putting an overall shot on there but im insecure of my size! :oops:

I'll second that, great camera and modelling work it's not often that a persons first pictures posted in this section get used in a NRM virtual exhibitions but with your permission I'd like to use a couple of these in the next one if that's ok.

Great looking layout Hammy.
I really like the mix of old and new and many of the scenes reminded me of much cherished images from Hornby catalogues from days gone by.
The temporary bay siding, mirror at the back of the diesel maintenance shed to add depth are nice touches for set pieces and the blurred HST picture is an absolute classic.
Look forward to seeing more of this layout.
Regards

hey, thanks for your comments.

the bridge is due to be replaced sometime soon, as obviously a death trap to all who use it! (plus its too low for catenery!)

locals know that when the high speed train is coming, not to be on the bridge!!!!!!

it was my wifes grandads from his layout it was smashed, i repaired it but its fairly old, as is the 2-6-2 and GWR coach in the bay siding (it is now a stationary cafe, must have a vip in there as the coppers guarding the door!)

more pics coming soon!
