I shall be disqualified, but it's the thought that counts !
Alex is running a Spring 2018 modelling 'Event', he says to start at the
beginning of May. Tough as I've already started what I said I'd enter, and
I don't have time, or inclination to do another project.
As a result I'll put photographs and description of what and why here, the
ideal place as the heading says "Not a layout, but railway modelling"
I was tired of making wagons and ancillary bits and pieces, then when in the
shed I noted a rather mouldy looking piece of ply. The though crossed my mind
of making a country scene, not even including any trace of railway, but having
room for an almost completed cottage and greenhouse.
In our hobby roomy the greenhouse model was sitting by a small length of code 75
track. An immediate change of plan, how about the end of a siding where there
would be just enough space for a single wagon.
You so often hear moans about the Peco sleeper spacing and I know a pal Dave had
once cut the under sleeper web and opened out the spacing. This was such a short
length I decided to give it a try, using a length of SMP track for spacing measurement
Something of a slow process and not a thing I'd ever do on a layout, but leave you to
It was at this point where Alex's competition was noted by me, but sorry I just can't
stop, or go backwards !
Pt.2 already for typing in.
