Sadly my Merchant Navy loco's arrive at Wykeham just to be turned on the shed turntable, before heading back to Bournemouth, and then back to London Waterloo - well that's my story. I currently have twenty four M/N Class - only six to go! I really am envious of the space you have. BB


Thanks for the comments!

Space also means more expense unfortunately, Peco has had quite a big slice of cash whilst I have been building this, and I haven't finished yet, I have just started building a representation of Seaton Station, although it will be condensed down quite a lot in length, so that my Push Pull branch train has somewhere to go.

I have had a look at your layout, it looks great btw, there's nothing wrong with having the Bulleid's on shed, you can sit and admire them. Mine just pause briefly at the station, or just flash past.

I haven't got as many MN pacifics as you, I currently have 5 of them, covering 5 different tender types.

35002 Union Castle (5000 gallon cut down tender)
35003 Royal Mail (5250 gallon BR rebodied tender)
35016 Elders Fyffes (5100 gallon cut down tender with full width vacuum cylinder cover)
35018 British India Line (6000 gallon cut down tender)
35026 Lamport and Holt Line (5100 gallon tender with narrow vacuum cylinder cover).

It is a bit unbalanced to be fair, as I have only got 2 rebuilt West Countries, and 1 original condition BOB.
My layout, only look if you are interested:

Hi folks. I previously mentioned that I was in the process of finding somewhere for my Branch line train to run to, instead of it simply running into the fiddle yard area.

I wanted to model Seaton Station, but due to space limitations, I have had to compress the length of the platforms, so they will just allow a 4 coach train + loco (on the longest track) I have also had to dispense with the goods yard siding due to a lack of width. I have however managed to get the lines either side of the station platforms, plus the loco shed line which was situated right next to the station.

On the blue painted wooden boarding, I intend to have a background of the river Axe, and the 'Axe Bridge' behind the station and shed area. At least at my model seaside station, there will be no mention of 'Covid 19' or 'lockdown'!
