Fintry Junction - N Gauge Scenic Layout

Postby rabbitaway » Mon Nov 09, 2009 3:15 am

This is the third attempt at trying to get a finished layout in the third house!

Trying to set the railway in a natural landscape with lots of detail for watching trains go by. I run a mix of LMS, BR transition, BR blue and more modern stuff. The layout is probably set in the usual transition period although the stock covers the 20s to the present.

Progress is moving on as you can see from the pictures and the lake / loch (depending on where I decide the location might be!) is the next stage to be completed

What a nice layout! Your attention to detail is inspiring.

Is the layout a loop? Can you post a couple of photo's of the left hand side of the layout?

Your layout has a lovely, meandering, relaxed, uncluttered feel to it. Yet you've also got a lot of those 'must have' features (a lake, engine shed, station, bridge, tunnel), as well as some nicely observed details (like the flowering bushes in the very last picture), talking of which, can I ask how you made the flowers on the bushes, they look good :)

Hi Southern Boy

I have had a look at both your old and new layout under construction and these are excellent with a great feel for an urban setting not usually apparent in this type of layout. The models of the semi detached houses are spot on.

The flowering bushes are pieces of foliage mat from the 4D architectural model shop in London

I must agree with SouthernBoy. You really have concentrated on the scenic aspect, so that it isn't overcrowded, and all the little touches on the layout do add to it. The photos are a real pleasure to see. Nicely done, sir !

Great stuff

the farm road is totally convincing, I do wish the way the attachments on here work wouldn't frame them and cut part off though.

One thing I noticed though, no trains!!

I've been to that shop (loads of materials and tools to experiment with there!) and saw the foliage mat - must admit in a pack it didn't look that promising - but seeing it on your layout puts it in a new light :)

Also: in the first picture of your last post - what are the 1930s looking cars bottomright ? (where are they from) ?

Anyway - keep the pictures coming :)

I have used the foliage mats for most of the scenery including the trees

The cars are white metal kits from fleetline road and rail. I only buy the open cast ones as I do not like the solid models as they are not realistic

All the track is complete and the trains run. I will take some photos with trains on the track over the next few days

Hi. I wouldn't have expected such a large fiddle yard for this layout but one can never have enough storage lines I guess. I agree with the other posters about the quality and sense of space and realism you've got going on. Nice work pal.
