Lovely layout Mike. The buses look like Samuel (Sammy) Ledgard. Are they?

The buses are Sammy, I just love these models as the detailing is super.

Will have to get some close up shots so everyone can enjoy them.

Cheers Mike

Hi Mike
When I lived in Leeds I travelled on Sammy Ledgard buses to and from Bramhope and Otley. When they were outside the Leeds area, they were the only bus company I knew that would pick you up or let you get off anywhere on route. You did not have to be at a bus stop. Great times.

Please do, Mike.
If there's one thing I love more than trains, it's buses.

Well I'm glad to say some progress on the layout & this time in the area I wanted to work on. I yanked out the platform sections so I could work right at the back of the layout on the right hand side of Wordsworth Station. I was never quite happy with the first attempt at the bus station, now I feel I've got the looks just right.

No this section is completed I can finish the scenery side by adding the foilage & grass working towards the front of the layout. Lrts have a look shall we....

Image
And on cue here come the buses.

Image
Only 3 bus stop places this time with the Taxi rank completely moved to a new location

Image
Like magic, once one bus arrives we end up with a second.

Image
Thre platform wall on platform 1 finally gets built.

Image
Here we have a general overview for the right side area of the station.

Image
Work can start on the platform 4 wall which will divide off the goods yard from the passenger side of things.

Image
Meanwhile round on the turntable we have the lovely A4 Golden Eagle.

Image
Then in the sidings we have A4 Sir Charles Newton.

Image
Class 31 waits just off the turntable just behind the signal box.

Image
Meanwhile in the TMD we have a lovely class 37.

Whilst I've been waiting from some glue to dry on the layout I started to upgrade two standard light fittings with some double 2foot daylight fittings. Certainly makes a nice chnage to the loft. I also decided to scrap my old Argyle Road layout as I now have new plans for a new Argyle Road on the loft extension. Thi will sit slightly elevated so the main track will run into tunnel portals & under Argyle Road. I hope to include two track that skirt round the front of Argyle Road and will be covered in arched retaining walls.

I'll try & get a plan created in railTrack so you can see what I have planned.

Well lets wrap up & I hope the buses please a few.

Cheers Mike.
