Really like the canal Walter. Are you planning on having it as a little used canal or do you plan to make it a busy scene? I can imagine it as both but not sure which would look better!

I really like this layout - although the track plan is quite straightforward the details you've added are absolutely superb and elevate it to another level. Your recent additions move it up another notch again. I follow your layout with interest.

Not sure - my layout is set somewhere around 1960, and I was kind of assuming that by then canals were well into decline for commercial purposes, and that we're way off canals being used for holidays yet - so maybe a derilict, run-down quayside scene is in order??

Was also thinking about a bit of OO9 narrow gauge to connect the canal to the station area, but I fear it may look at bit daft as there is only 2 and a bit ft to cover between the two! Any thoughts on such short narrow gauge lines more than welcome..

Bit of a progress report. Not a lot really, but did add some bits and pieces to the station area and installed Viessmann lights, which I found on ebay.de at considerably less than UK prices, even with postage.

Excellent pictures Walter, and the right size for editing into NRM VE 4 if you don't mind me using them.

Update

Postby eaw458 » Wed Jun 13, 2007 3:25 pm

Three months since the last post! So - what's changed?

1. Got a Class 37 and a Class 43 and weathered them
2. Put Express Models lights in my Class 08 and Class 37
3. Added speed restriction signs and telegraph poles (the former really look good!)
4. Fitted white metal crews in all steam locos
5. Made some trees
