Been busy third railing..

The relief lines are done, just about to start the last bit of the mainline now.

Last night a queen wasp appeared from underneath the layout, frightened the $h!7 out of me!
Also caused the 33 to overshoot and carry on across the road into the warehouse :roll: ..Must invest in some more buffers!

Also found this oldie on my computer

Its been a while since I have posted any updates as I've been at uni since xmas and not been home.. My birthday was last month so added a few more things to the layout. Got a Bachmann Lineside Transformer, and various scenery things. Also very tempted by the new Dapol class 73 in Intercity livery so this could be the next addition. Heading home this Thursday for Easter so will try and get some things done and new pics up.. :)

Also I finally have platforms! A station bus shelter will be situated on each platform with lights, signs etc. Going shopping tomorow for yellow paint to do the warning line.

The platforms have been built using Ratio concrete sides, 1mm foamex plastic with a roll of industrial fine emery paper mounted on top. Marks and discolourations have simply been made by rubbing my fingers on it! An off cut of Scale Scenes paving slabs have been used to make the drainage strip down the middle of the island platform.

More to come over the next few days hopefully...

Merry Christmas all,

I've been back to my parents house for the last week so I've been trying to crack on with the railway with my Dad.
Here are a few photos of the last few days progress..

Substaion now glued in and foliage added. I didn't like the fencing that was provided with the substation as it was too chunky so I've replaced it with Wills security fencing.

General view of bridges. Hopefully should get the top fixed tomorrow :)

I've also sound chipped by Class 33 with a Howes v4 chip.. Might post a video tomorrow :D

As always, thanks for looking. Grayum

A short video of my new Howes chipped class 33, unfortunately the speaker blew shortly after. I'm not sure why as I hadn't altered the volume of the chip :( Thankfully its covered by the guarantee so I should get it fixed quickly.

It's been a while but I was finally re-united with my railway for a brief weekend visit back to my parents. Working (but not yet wired up) station lamps have now been added in NSE red and the retaining wall now has a 'lid' which will form the station car park ( top right where the 2 street lamps and car can be seen). Sound chip has been re-speakered and altered so it should not blow again.
I have also brought a twin pack Derby RTC coach pack, though unfortunately I forgot that bachmann mk2s do not clear the 3rd rail as the coaches battery boxes are positioned too low :cry:

Below is a quick shot while I was in the process to fixing the station lamps

Hi All,
I am after some motorway style crash barrier (OO/HO), I've seen it used on a number of layouts but haven't found anyone who actually makes it. Can anyone point me in the direction for finding some?

Thanks, :)

Also unit models do a type of barrier.
