Nice to see progress on "New Wordsworth" It seems to be developing some nice "views between the houses" which always evoke realism. Enjoy your modelling Mike.

Getting to be a citadel! :D
What is the hole in the road for?
What did you use for the road markings?
Why no windows above the house doors?

Yes the hole in the road. It's a little cameo I came up with. The hole is for some water pipe repair, I'll print off some sign like "Wordsworth water wish to apologise for....blah blah blah...." then have two men each end of the works with STOP & GO signs, maybe some road barriers to complete the scene.

All sounds so good in my head.

Roads are just my normal printed paper kit from the web site & the double yellow lines are just over glued in place as required.

Hope I can pull the full scene off, should look good if it works.

Cheers Mike

There was a pretty good "road up job" some years back, you could see the pipes and road foundations, I think it was done by 0121modeller (Dave Folley). If it wasn't his it was on another member's layout that he produced a canal scene for.

Hi Gents,

Well I'm still doing my dilly dallying along with my layout & I've not done as much as I would like but I take progress as progress no matter how much it is.

So I'm still working on the diesel shed concrete base area, most of it now completed with two more final sections between the track. I'm also on with the arched perimeter wall which keeps the locals out from the danagerous depot. It's all coming together really well & I know this version of Wordsworth is much better than the cramped feel the old layout gave.

Dont get me wrong I still liked that old version but layout need to evolve & grow. So lets look at a few photo's rather than my waffling.

Image
Bachmann Class 37 taking on diesel

Image
The new concrete area showing the full depot size in all it's glory.

Image
The new arched perimeter wall seen in front of the village area, still not decided whether to install some gates / barriers.

Image
Nice view over looking the crew mess down the latest concrete area, a new double road shed to sit here.

Image
And we finish back with the class 37

Sorry but that's all I have for now, so until my next little update just be happy.

Mike.

Good afternoon gents, I was just wondering now LNER are taking over the east coast main line, does this mean I can get myself a class 125 HST in the new livery.

My layout is loosely based on this railway.

Do I really need an excuse to run a 125 here at Wordsworth.... Not really but the thought of a 125 carrying the LNER name is quite ironic.

What's the world coming too...lol.

Just general banter.

Something tells me we won't see that livery, shame as I'm sure it would look great. I did come across a photo someone put up on the web & it was the GNER livery, ass big white square had been super imposed over the G & then a large L put in it's place. Maybe the new company not got any money for a full respray....LOL

Anyway back at wordsworth I'm generally tinkering, some new photo's of areas not seen before & testing where my new building will sit & do they fit that location ass visaged.

So lets have a look.

Image
New Network rail porta-cabin goes in the yard next to entrance 2

Image
General overview of old coaling ramp area & the new Diesel TMD

Image
Just checking for warped rails being a loft based layout, no work the track crew here.....LOL

Image
St Cuthberts church in it's new grounds

Image
The new Railway Hotel far left, borrowed the terrace row from other end of the layout to see if a new idea will work, should fit in nicely, then the bus depot.

Image
Then we have the bus depot & back to the new church.

I think this will be just right in completing this side of the baseboards. I can live with this for now whilst I finish the kit builds & if still happy I can start building the scenery round them. Oh so close I can taste it, what I mean I only have the TMD to finish then the station platforms & my attention can be put to building those extension boards & why this new layout was designed, far end of the loft here I come....LOL

Image
In between the building & kit design I've been trying to add some wagon loads to my Hornby lowmacs. I did buy these for my WW2 tank kits (Which still remain unbuilt under my layout) but in a new development my wife got me some new Oxford Rails War Wells for my birthday which fit the scene so much better.

Image
I'm also testing out large underground pipe work for loads, does it need a third on top, not sure but it's a change from empty wagons.

Image
Lastly how about this A4 with gunpowder train

So my time is up, hope I've given you all some food for thought.

Mike.

Hi Mike, nice to see progress at "New Wordswoth", and some old favourite kits making an appearance.
