Middleton (30's GWR)

Postby outcastjack » Sun Jan 18, 2009 5:30 pm

this is my first layout i has been under construction for 3 years.
It has grown up from a Bachmann starter set i received for my fithteenth birthday.
i am afraid its a bit shabby at the minute as cars, girls, and an exhibition layout got priority
its a bit worse for wear with holes in the hill, peeling brick paper and scatter coming loose.

Well outcast, ( if I may call you that )
I think it has a very nice rural look and feel about it , I don't know about 'shabby'. The narrow gauge line has typical outlook too, " Let's lay the track through here, sod the main line!". Don't let the forementioned diversions worry you too much ( although the 'girls' can tend to become a long term one if you are not careful.
Keep it going it looks great.

I think that is a fantastic layout, the mix of narrow and standard gauge makes a really nice change from the normal 2 loop tail chaser types! Well done!

The clutter and general real life "stuff" on the layout is great.

Girls and cars kept me away from modelling for 10 years or so, but the bug is always there! Even now I hide it from some!

Nice layout ....I too like the mix of 009 [?] NG and standard guage.

best regards

these are photos showing the most recent bits of work mainly just repair but i have replaced some bits, the platform being the major bit.
next bit of work is the station on the other side of the layout.
tunnel also needs work and the white stuff is where i am repairing holes in the hill

That's a great looking little layout that you have there.
I love the NG crossings, the overgrown sidings, the wooded area and the pit road next to the shed, some very nice and natural looking touches.

I became waylaid by cars and girls for a long time, but the good thing about railway modelling is that you can return to it at any time during your life as interest returns.

I'd love to see more pics :)
Regards

Is it me, or do you have 2 bachmann panniers?
I'm back and now I model in 'Strain your eyes gauge'...

I really enjoyed those pictures mate, I think your layout is superb. Landscaping looks very natural, ballasting looks great too.

Those crossovers you've got for the narrow gauge line, who makes those? I dont think I've seen them before!

Also, in this photo, have you got some kind of elevated track going on? Impressive !

Lets have some more photos !!

If I'm correct the one going in the tunnel is a pannier, but the one in the yard is a 14xx 0-4-2, not a pannier.

I think they're scratch built, I've never seen them either...

Redline, now that youv'e pointed that out i suppose so. The crossovers sometimes are on ebay as scratchbuilt. Go for a bomb! From around £20-£40!
