I got one of those already :P although that has been most of the easy stuff to do. The next parts are just as important but will take much longer :(

well I'm just about to upload a video to youtube showing what needs to be done to complete the double track mainline part.

Hi T&C!

Some good progress there matey! Looks like a nice long run as well, i notice the track is pre-ballasted, is that the Fleischmann stuff? It could be Kato i s'pose? Whatever, it looks good anyway! Keep up the good work, cheers! :wink: .

yeah its the flieshmann stuff, its bluddy expensive (nearing £2 for a piece of track same length as an R600 :roll: ) and the set track is very quite sharp as I have a nice few cuts on me hands from that stuff :x :lol:

I have now come to the conclusion due to practicality issues the big bridge is going to be demoltished and a new one built in its place (oh! the wonders of meccanno :) )

I might post some pictures of the new bridge being built to just the new one depends how I'm feeling ;)

The new bridge was so close to be finished, I took it up onto the layout just so i could see how much track I would need to be able to pass underneath it and found that you could probably fit 2 trains underneath it (on top of each other :shock: ) I think I may of over shot it, so now I have to do most of the bridge AGAIN!!!! I did a short amount of work on the yard today (short= 30 mins max.) i got a few new additions to fleet to day as well, a WD 20 ton tanker, Firestones 7 plank wagon, a Ayres wagon and a Jaguar E-type (ooooo......Lush!!! ;) )

any way will get some pics posted soon (or compiled into video on youtube)

anyway, I'm reallly making tracks now (sorry another terrible pun :( ) most of the inner double track section is complete, outer section of the station is complete infact all but one lane of track is complete in the station area now :D The main thing holding me back atm is the fact that I dont have enough set track straights :( I really need some more. (E-Bay here I come :P )

Fellow Modellers,
I come bearing bad news, Oxcote is Dead

but out from its ashes rises a new and improved;
Image
Castle Cross is a fictitious major stop on the Great Western Mainline in between Bath Spa and Oldfield Park.
The Foxbridge Branch Parts just after Castle Cross.

More update when they are available.

Regards
