12x2 ft Exhibition layout.

Postby the weston guy » Sun Nov 28, 2010 4:34 pm

I have been busy around my local model railway club and now i have got 2 6x2 ft boards with folding legs for an exhibitions from a very generous man. So i cleaned up the celler and placed the boards down. I have got a ruff plan and a time i am sticking to. An 00 gauge end to end layout based on 1960 western region with a few midland region loco's creeping in. So i am making a list of what i need to do. Number 1, Brace the board's leg so it does not fall over. Any questions ask.

Hi Tim - what track will you be using? Peco or Hornby? Do you have any western region diesels or is this on your Christmas list!

Thanks all.
Yes the track is peco code 100 streamline with a few setrack straights to help. I am a big fan of hydrulics(Adore the hymek)but it seems like a 56xx i am prying. For filming I will ethier use my phone(not very good quality) or borrow a camara. Hopefully i can get a camara for christmas. I am going to club and will take some my loco's there. Oh and a thought if you come over eastern you could come to the model railway club(only a thought).

Little update.
I have got a new camara and a new loco.
The loco is a fantastic 56xx by bachmann.
Boards have been braced and Trackplan has been drawn.
The plan is the Heart of Wales, Based on a station called "Pantyffynnon".
The name of the layout i think will be on the lines of "Lanndidu Junction".

Re: 12x2 ft Exhibition layout. Now called Llanffynnon Junction

Postby the weston guy » Sun Jan 30, 2011 9:56 am

The layout is called Llanffynnon Junction (Its a mix between Llandrindod Wells and Pantyffynnon) Which are both on the central wales line. I have laid out the track and am now cutting it to size, fitted fish clips ect. Hopefuly i will order the point motors soon (Peco extended pins with probe and tag sytem). Having trouble putting pics up it says is invalid i have joined photobucket, still confused. Oh and i have been booked in for an exhibition for my local club on the 30th of april.... I have 3ish Months to complete it :shock: .

Not a lot of updates. I am fitting the point motors and starting to work on the scenery. I'm still unavailable to put pictures up yet but i will do a link to Photobucket for now. Got to order some more stuff from Hereford Model Centre. Pictures to follow soon.

I for one would highly look at getting a hymek as these little lines saw them quite often on short trip freights and are an ideal size.Look forward to more progress.
