Love the interior lighting.
The shed is so big it makes your GC loco look like a RH&DR miniature :lol:

You keep showing the 56xx .... the more I see it the more I like it and having borrowed a few books from the library on the railways of the Welsh Valleys doesn't help much either :wink:

There is just something about that model I agree, tbh I'm not the biggest fan of 56xx's but it was the model and the price of it that suckered me and tbh it's perfect for my layout.
I'm back and now I model in 'Strain your eyes gauge'...

Hi
I have kind of jumped a lot of this thread so i hope you haven't found a name yet.
if you still don't have a name how about Myrddin's causeway (substitute welsh translation for causeway to complete the name)
I don't know of any where in Wales named that, so it could be anywhere you choose to put it.
its the welsh slate that gave me the idea.
Hope this helps.
regards John
A model railway can be completed but it's never finished

not sure John, but thanks for the suggestion all the same, I'm still debating the name.

As for progress itself more track has been laid, including the lines to and inside the shed the headshunt is just big enough for the sheds largest allocated locomotive, 5043 as the photo below shows, here are some photos;

I really like the sweeping curves and curved points giving access to the loco shed.
Are you going to have a coaling facility of some description and a water tower?

It looks like its coming along a treat, but you know what almost brings me to tears? is being able to see the basic OO scale scenery (the paint) still on the baseboards. SO HURRY up and get that covered.

Just joking with you pal. Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Stew.
Please take a look at both my layouts:
My layout: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=28240
My 5" Gauge layout: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=29058

Is that an O Ivatt 2mt I see in the first few pictures? I'd love to see a few more if you have them. The Ivatt 2MT is one of my favourites in OO. Excellent progress by the way, although I agree it’s a little disturbing seeing the marks on the baseboard of your old OO layout! :cry:

Cheers,

Stuart.

Ooh nice, so the BR standard derived from an Ivatt. I couldn't quite tell from the earlier photo which is was and must have assumed Ivatt 2MT since my OO model springs to mind. Now I look at the photos you can make out the small differences between the two classes.

Cheers,

Stuart.

The BR 2's were indeed closely derived from the Ivatt's, (infact most BR standards have shades of LMS in them) the 2's look pretty similar albeit for the different cab, standard build BR boiler etc. As it happens, Dan here is a 78xxx and I have the Ivatt 2 Tank (over on the West Lulworth thread), hope to have both these 2 running together soon!
