I have a mental image in my head of a curved viaduct between those scalescenes houses and warehouse from the heatherburn. Going to do some planning tonight. 8)

Like the sound of that, shades of 'Borchester' and that was/is a classic railway layout, fingers crossed :D

Dave,

As posted on the Heathburn thread, pictures of the final demise of both Heathburn, Potters Lane, and Trent Valley would be nice...... :wink:

Potters and Trent valley still have one more show to do in a couple of weeks time. It will be a while before I dismantle these two as I want to get the garage sorted properly this time before I fill it with railway again.

Hmmm...viaduct....terminus...with through lines....don't fancy building Portsmouth station do you? :P

Seriously though Dave, it seems you've had a bit of a Beeching rush...for the better though! I would simply love to see a layout by you with a big viaduct approach and some sort of split level station. High and Low level maybe?

Cheers fella

He should try and model Portsmouth Harbour the only station where you really have to mind the gap or you will end going for a swim!

Dave,
Be careful im still trying to get my head around the 5m x 3m i have at my disposal, i ve spent the last two years designing -scraping, designing and of course Murphys opening my wallet every few months and taking a big wad of cash out for the latest goodies.
A least the wagon works is open for business!!!!
Best of luck with the new layout mate

Been a long time since I updated this thread. :roll:

AC lines has been in storage for 12 months now and was due to be retired although I have just accepted an invitation to attend Jarrow show next year. The past year has seen a few changes layout wise with the scrapping of the heatherburn garden railway and the bletchford layout that I started in the garage. Health wise I had an opperation back in march for a hernia that ment that I ended up cancilling a show appearence as I didn't feel up to it. In april I returned to full time employment and gave up doing model making work for others mainly due to my workload although I did get messed about by a couple of customers. At one point I considered giving up model making all together ...........

I have been working away on a large layout up in the loft although I have given up posting progress on any of the forums due to lack of intrest by others. Now I only post regular updates on my westcoast miniatures facebook group for those who still follow my modelling projects.

Hi, I quite like what you've done so far - it looks absolutely amazing! The scratch building is awesome too. I want to run the Class 89 test train on future layouts and managed to source a RTR model from DC Kits. How did you get hold of Lab 6 Prometheus in OO gauge? And how did you do the lighting on the 89?
