Love the bucket seat for racing games - I NEED one of those!!! :lol:


The HST shed is an old Hornby one that i found on Ebay, this one was fully built already, but i believe they came in kit form.

Thanks for the positive comments, i do tend to go abit over board when i commit myself to a new hobby, only been at this one 2 yrs and so it's been quite a challange getting all the stuff for it!

However last night i started to have a sort out of what i don't really need, so soon shall be putting many items on Ebay.

Also moved all the empty boxes in the corner so that i can get some more boards down for the extension for the attic complete loop, this will join the main station to the goods yard area (turntable to be moved to a new extension elsewhere) via a fiddle yard next to the TV and the other three lines will go behind the TV to join it all up, as seen in the plan below:

I shall keep you updated as i progress as always.

Last of the Gasworks bits have arrived now, so i'm off to lay them out :D

Love your layout, the overall shots are great.

Looks nearly finished so I assume a new extension is planned the gas works ? Looks like you have the room.

If you can remember where did you get the parcel force lorry from ? I`ve wanted one of them for ages.

I buy trains because I like them, and I know that bit should not go there. But I`m happy.

Great loft, I am very envious!

Don't have the time or the knowledge for that project!

Rather spend more of my time on building my layout to be honest :wink:
