And not forgetting our exhibition layout soon! With that and helping out on other layouts will I get to build another of my own??? :lol:

A quick update on Old Warren - the deposit has been left, price agreed and the layout will be gone either this Saturday or Saturday 15th November, so removal of stock is already underway before removing the items I am keeping and dismantling.

The spare room where it is housed will then be redecorated before the new layout can be started, which is likely to be in the New Year. Plans are in the early stages for Old Warren mk2 but should feature a 4-platform station with depot behind, based on the ECML to allow for electric locos.


So this is it - The End!!

Very good and fitting - might have to "borrow" that soundtrack for a slideshow!!

Well this is it - the layout goes this morning, so these will be my last ever photos of Old Warren :( 66072 and 66250 are prepped for their final departure in the shed, 37425 transfers the last of the wagons, being the steel flats, and 37087, 20309 and 47580 are seen on the Farewell Old Warren rail-tour.

A huge thanks for all the support and comments on this layout over the last couple of years. It's been a great experience and learning curve. I cannot wait to start it all again in the New Year with the successor.

If you want to do a slide show make sure you have pics of it being dismantled and loaded up into new owners car/van... then pause on the car dissapering into the distance

But hey chin up! onwards and upwards

Farewell Old Warren TMD.

Strange it looked even more realistic without locos & stock - A case of less is more ???
Like most I've enjoyed watching all the ups & downs and again interested to see what
comes next.

Here's to the future !!

Looking forward to MkII.

Those pictures are indeed stunning. Always loved this layout; as well as the detailed unique traction and stock; the scenics and location plus the atmospheric distance is as good as the trackside close up detail.

I've loved this layout and have been following it for 4 months now, but have read and re read all the pages from 1 to 50 as its so fascinating! It's sad to hear that it has gone to a new home but from the flames will rise a new Phoenix and if its half as good as old warren mk1, then I'm sure it will be amazing as well. My only question is....... Will it be documented on the forum like its predecessor? I truly hope so as its given me much inspiration for my n gauge layout, and as old warren mk2 sounds like it could be ECML based, it will be even more of an inspiration to me as mine is as well.
Looking forward to the new year and the new 'old wawrren'!

This layout is breathtaking, and I love the fencing!

Thanks for all the positive comments on this layout. It's been a bit surreal that it has attracted so much interest being my first layout, and essentially a test-bed. I cannot promise mk2 will be quite as quick in development as I am working full time now.

One final pic of Old Warren - all loaded up and ready to go to Leicester.

I've always wondered what Old Warren would've looked like in BR Blue days, and thanks to a visit from local boy Shaun Harvey on Monday evening, I now know! :D It certainly made a nice change, and also gave me the kick in the bum I needed to get the track cleaned!

Well as a man who appears to be stuck in the 80's... films, music, even some of the sports cars I still dream about owning one day this image as a man who's followed this thread over the last two days with great interest and been following model railways building/maintaining/owning even longer I have to say these images are the best of the best in my opinion... Back in the day before the "Thatcher!" decided to split up all the companies and give the country the chance to fight for what they wanted with hopes of making things without a monopolising world create a cost competitive world only to find out it did pretty much the opposite... this image brings me back to those days standing on platforms with my father as a child (currently 37) looking around the outer sidings for the class 08 with wasp stripes and the DMU's coming into Truro's branch line! This is as good as it gets.

Regards,

Mark Smart
