quakers yard tmd & wagon repair

Postby martyn00 » Sat Mar 27, 2010 8:04 pm

welcome to my new layout thread named quakers yard tmd & wagon repair .before i go any further i would like to thank simon evans aka piemanlarger for all his help getting me started as i was struggling with a lot of things the biggest being self confidence cheers mate.

ok quakers yard is an end to end layout measuring 9ft 10 inches long x 2ft. wide its splits into two boards making it easier to move around or store away when its not being used.track is peco streamline code 100 flexi track with 10 peco medium radius electrofrog points.point control will be hand of god the reason for this is puerly the extra cost.the layout will be dcc controled with plenty of lighting and in the not to distant future a bit of sound aswell

all the track has been layed and wired im now ready to start the concrete areas around the both sheds and then onto ballasting and weathering the track

heres a few pics of the layout upto now

Hello Martyn,
A very nice start to your new Lay-out. Is this set in any particular area in respect of the "Quakers Yard" name?Looking forward to more up-dates. Good Luck,
Kind Regards,
Michael Thornberry.

well the time has come for me to make a decision regarding railway modelling.my wife is home from hospital now and has given me a ultimatum either i start the layout or i sell everything that i have that is model railway related.i have a week to decide what im going to do build the layout or sell up.i would realy like my own layout but looking at the situation realisticley i can never see it happening due to my lack of railway knowledge abismal eyesight and very low levels of confidence.my wife has had enough of me buying locos wagons lights scenery and all the other stuff and then just stashing it all in boxes.the train modeling idea come to me after i seen james may top toys programme.so i now have a lot of thinking to do before next weekend

Hi Martyn i think you should give it a go, if you sell up you are likely to lose money you never seem to be able to get what you paid for it as it will be classed as second hand.It was you that convinced me i do not need 20 class 50's with sound and i listened to your advise.
So Martyn please listen to me and give it a go, you may begin to enjoy it.
cheers

Maybe you should let the wife see this site and the amount of procrastination that goes on before single rail is laid.

Me I have been planning for almost 2 years now :oops:
