Allenik TMD 80's to present day Diesel OO layout

Postby DELTIC MAN » Tue Aug 07, 2012 7:35 pm

Hi Everyone

this is my permanent layout which is under construction the layout has the following in the plans:-

Freight Yard
TMD
Large depot based on Wigan Springs Branch (building to be built proffessionally)
Network depot
Multi layer with a helix
Lower level storage
High level station and country area

The layout will be DCC and all diesel ranging from the 80's through to current day. Most locos are resprays/renumbers and weather/detailed. The layout is new but built on boards belonging to my previous layout.

Here are some photos so far:-

That is mighty impressive mate!

The helix looks great and well thought out. Good luck with the build, I'll keep an eye on this one. :)

Fantastic amount of space you have there & you've used it well. Must have taken a lot of planning.

I love the sweeping curves. Too many modellers try too fill straight lines right into the corners, leaving too tight a radi. I unfortunately have a couple of those due to poor planning lol :lol: :lol:

Steve

WOW Deltic Man, that's going to be one huge layout. I don't know but are you planing on having a station and running big hst's etc :D
Do you have a track plan at all?

Hi 413x

Thanks for the comments. there will be a station up on the next level when I build it. I have a great central set and a network rail set HSt so I will run them (they are currently in a box with my other stock at them moment.

I have to admit I have about 350 locos mainly 37's and 60's as well as having a large DRS fleet, once i have built a bit more of the layout I will get them on and photo them.

Just a thought here are some of my locos on my previous half built layout

Well Summer is here the olympics have nearly finished so I thought in this heat lets do some more modelling, doh!


But anyway I started so I finished. With much frustration and fiddling i have managed to get the freight yard and loco stabling point lit up with the yard lights from express models and r3sprays all good lights.


So here we are a couple of piccis showing progress (also thought I would put a couple of pictures of some of the locos in the MPD sidings

Good Evening

Not much progress at the moment but I have fitted the boards in place for the station which are on the upper level so just need to decide on a track plan.

Cheers

Nik
