Andrew's Layout

Postby GROTLAND » Sat Feb 23, 2008 10:55 pm

Hello. I've finally sorted out how to post pictures, I think.
I'll try to send some more pictures showing a better impression of the track layout and some work in progress.

Great pictures, I love the one on the top because of the use of different carriages. Very realistic. :D

Superb :shock: I think you will be busy on here in the future, explaining how you get that level of weathering on the buildings, especially the retaining walls by the tunnel. Don't be shy now :lol:

Thanks guys, you're comments are much appreciated and cheers for the technical advice since I joined last month!
This layouts my first serious attempt at modelling and is a long way from completion. It's about 12 foot by 12. 3 tailchasers (2 up, 1 down connected by a ridiculously steep incline in the 6 road(inadequate) fiddle yard) and a terminus station and 1 small station. It's called Leith Baltic street, a fictitious dirty Edinburgh late 60's scene, hence Grotland.
The baseboard is several heavy 3/4 inch chipboard sections with some appaling bodges and unorthadox wiring + one massacred mfi pc desk. It could never be exhibited as it's part of the roof of the house now and it's controlled from the centre. The lofts a pyramid, with obtrusive diagonal battons in the corners meaning the 2 outer loops have to descend steep inclines to clear the huge horizontal beams behind the backscene .
I'll post some more pictures of the main station area and the track plan.
Thanks again

That's your first attempt? Sweet Nora....

I've seen worse successful exhibition layouts.
