Oswestry Junction 2, N guage BR late 80's to mid 90's

Postby 1977joey » Fri Jan 22, 2010 7:10 pm

Hi guys, as i'm totally re-modelling my station, i thought i would start off a fresh thread.
To those who are familiar with my old thread, my layout was loosely based on the operations at Shrewsbury during the mid 80's to mid 90's.
Keeping with the same theme, i wasn't altogether happy with my old track plan.
Having altered it a couple of times, i still wasn't satisfied :roll: .
Now here is the start of Oswestry Junction No.2, still loosely based on Shrewsbury, with North to West CrossCountry services routed via here and also West Midlands to Chester and also the Cambrian line services to Aberystwyth & Pwllheli which reverse here.
There is still a daily through loco hauled service from London Euston to Aberystwyth and also on summer saturdays.
The new station plan is to have 4 Platforms, of which 2 will be terminus platforms, one of which (Platform 3) is long enough to accomodate 6 coaches, the other two are through platforms which each are long enough to accomodate 8 coaches plus a locomotive. Both the through platforms will be bi-directional, and also the terminal platforms will have dead sections of track at the buffer stops so you can divide or couple up dmu's when required.
There are 3 stabling sidings at the south end of the station which are long enough to accomodate 4 car dmu's or coach rakes.
There is also a centre road between the through platforms which is for stabling a loco or dmu during peak times, or a freight train whilst the driver takes a PNB.
At the end of the terminal platforms there will be a small concourse facing the buffer stops, where i will construct a small overall roof to span the platforms. The longest of the Platforms 2 & 3 will have a canopy running for a good part of its length, & also a conopy will be cinstructed along Platform 4.
None of my stock is DCC, as for the moment i don't have the money for the converting...but i'm not ruling it out as a possibility in the future, also my points are all manual operated, still fun all the same :)

Cheers Ste :D , the Dapol Mark3 DVT is my latest addition for my 'London's', it certainly does have directional lighting, though when running with it at the front, it will be hauled by a diesel loco on my layout. Its a cracking little model :)

Thanks Kenny :) . Steam special's will def be on the cards at some point. I remember seeing the Flying Scotsman at Shrewsbury back in 1999, was amazing. It was hauling Pete watermans rake of Mark 1's. I managed to catch it on video :D

Hi guys, well a bit of an update....
the platforms are now complete along with the edging, also ive done a little building in the concourse area, though the waiting room behind the stairs is from the station off the old plan. The stairs i'm going to detail a bit more, & also add a lift entrance behind each set of stairs :)

I really liked the last incarnation of this layout, and i'm sure this one will be just as good. I'm really jealous of some of the stock you have-particularly the 101s!! :wink:

Cheers ASFC :) The 101's are really old which i bought second hand. I have a 2-car dummy set, & the other is a 3 car set which works, albeit sounding like a bag of nails when it goes round :lol: lol. Think we're gonna have a long wait for farish to bring out the Regional Railways version which has been on the website for an absolute age with still no expected date :x !
But if they're gonna be as good as the 108's & with directional lighting, it'll hopefully be worth the wait :wink:
Glad you like the layout, yours is also a fab layout. Have book marked it for updates :)
