Chesterton, mirco layout

Postby matt-b » Sat Oct 13, 2012 6:23 pm

Hello people.

Here is my new N gauge layout.
I have at the moment a Regional Railways 150 and 156 (away for weathering) for passenger services then a EWS 66 + 3 VGA`s for freight use.
Hoping to get my Mercig models out on it over the next few weeks and add some more pallets to the yard.

Thanks, Matt

Looks interesting - to we of small minds, sorry layouts! But BIGGER photos would be nice!

Dimensions? 3' scenic?

Wow, that looks great. Despite its (relatively) small size the layout gives a feeling of much open space (if that makes sense :oops: ).
Very nice.

All the best,
Michael

Bloody fantastic. I like micro layouts and this is one of the best ive seen :) Im not that big a fan of modern image but I could happily have a play on this one. Is the track code 55?

EDIT: there seems to be a mimic diagram in the small picture, are the points electric?

I like the fact that you haven't filled the whole space up with track. It makes the whole thing look a lot roomier so you don't have that cramped look that bedevils a lot of micros.

Hello

Thanks for your comments..

The track is standard code 80. The points are manual but there is a dead section at the end of the platform that can be turned on or off.

I am happy with it, have thought about doing some exhibitions maybe...

Ideal i`d like it longer so i could run abit longer freights but oh well.

Thanks, Matt

That is a cracking little layout. Nicely modelled station and the telegraph poles are a nice touch.

Mat. :)
