It was a general auction, not a toy sale so was quite lucky, another guy knew the potential, but i was very happy with my purchases. :D

More pics

Postby eggbert17 » Wed May 16, 2007 11:43 pm

Yet another picture update lol, ive had to change the outside line as i found that the 2 points nearest the camera side would cause derailments, nothing bad but still annoying, so ive had a slight re-vamp, am thinking about installing a 2nd line from the 3rd platform round to the shed n back, but i will need to invest in some track, as the rest of mine is rusty or wont make the line complete. Anway enough of me gabbling, here are the pics :lol:

Overall shot showing the slight changes with the platform lines and edges.

Nice locos and rolling stock and you're doing the right thing by getting your track sorted before you start on the scenery. GB.

Yet another update, i took heed with some previous comments made near the start and have installed a second line lol, gonna have to drill some holes so tht the 2nd line wires arent under the 1st line but its fine 4 now, hope you enjoy te pics, am still wading through the new locos lol

New second line installed, the one with the carriages and castle, the shed area looks more authentic now, instead of random lines all over the place lol, just need a new set of points to join the 2nd line to the loop.

New purchase MN class 34023 'Holland-Africa Line' sits in the loop.

Here u can see where the new points need to go

Br 46237 'City of Bristol' in carriage/engine siding

Well i havent posted up an update for a while lol, this is due to not havin a pc for nearly a year and not much time to work on the railway, since then ive had a few more additions to the collection including alot of better track, so i decided to re-vamp the layout and come up with this.
Am glad to be back lol, hope you all can enjoy my efforts again.

Here you can see 2 running lines around the layout, with a 4 lane shed area and a 4-5 lane area for station use.

Feel free to comment or ask questions, will try and update more now im back lol
