One word of caution to anyone using those Hornby "Hydraulic" buffer stops, they were designed for Super 4 track and have not been modified, hence if you are using code 100 the buffer height is much too high and it takes some carving to get right

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?

I have stopped using them altogether, I an not happy with them, but I am saying that no one else should, each to his own needs and suitability.

The journey back. Trains would leave Sovereign Street and at the junction take the left line that goes behind the shops and houses (North Road)

The line then joins the line to Scholarsgate at the junction at the Engine Shed

Trains then pass the small industrial estate and Wyndham Farm before entering the fiddle yard.

I really like this layout. There is always something new.
Remember: model railroading can become contagious. So be careful...

Thanks Montfort.

I like to have scenes that remind me of people I have known, work places and farms that have been in my life, friends and above all family.
I also try to include lorries, trams, buses and canal boats. My other main interest is shipping. Where would that go on the layout?

The small Industrial estate
Harrison Wildlife Management. The owner is often seen 'roaming' North Tynedale (Northumberland) looking after the wildlife.

Archbold & Glendinning Storage & Distribution. Archbold's were based at Gildersome, near Leeds and W A Glendinning's were at Shotley Bridge, Consett. Both Companies were a big influence on me, especially talking to the drivers.

Winter & Harwood Builders Merchants. Another two families of influence. Winter's are from Cramlington, Northumberland and Harwood's lived in Consett.

Coming together very nicely.
Is the layout a L shape or a whole circuit?

Hi Hymirl. Thanks for your comment.

The layout goes round the room. Side 1 is fiddle yard to Wyndham Farm. Side 2 From Wyndham Farm to entrance to Scholarsgate Station.
Side 3 Scholarsgate Station. Side 4 Sovereign Street Station. A bridge (which is removable as it is where the door to the room is,) joins Sovereign Street Station to the fiddle yard.

The building of the bridge was my competition entry in 2017.

I shall post some photos soon.

Thanks BMcB.
The buildings I have had for some time. I bought them from a Company based in Lincolnshire. The name escapes me unfortunately.

The buildings are made of wood. The Company did buildings of businesses you see around the country. —- Pickfords, Post Office etc. They also did bespoke buildings, hence Harrison’s Wildlife Management, Archbolds & Glendinning’s etal.

Not thatI want any more, but I hope they are still in business wherever they are, because the buildings are very good quality.

Ha ha BMcB :D

Well I guess it will be one of those buildings that will allude me but I do like the design and I think a scratchbuild will be in order (unless I find one online, will have to have a search)
