Llandublo, a North Wales layout in OO gauge

Postby live-frog » Thu Jul 13, 2006 7:13 pm

For any of you thinking of moving to France , this is the reason to do it - Space. I've lived in France for 4 years and started building a layout in HO 3 years ago at our first house in France.
This layout was 4 metres by 2.7 metres and was built on the landing.
Unfortunately my computer died and I lost all the photos.
We moved house last year and bought this place with a huge basement 8 mtrs by 5 mtrs.
I carried on with HO at first and expanded the layout a bit.
When Hornby acquired Jouef/ Lima/ electrotren etc. I got thoroughly disillusioned with the price of French stock and decided to go OO with a British theme : Llandublo which was about 50 miles from where I lived in Cheshire.
I should have started from scratch but I didn't and have used most of the original boards. I'm in the last thro's of a complete renewal of the trackwork.

The layout is 5 mtrs by 3 mtrs

Here are a few photos taken today

Looks like it's going to be a fantastic layout! :D

One thing I love about this hobby is that you can look at other's work and get some ideas for your own layout, even if you copy them like for like it will come out totally different :D

When I first read the layout name I thought it was going to be inspired by the old Hornby/Dublo models. :lol: This promises to be an excellent layout, so please keep us updated!
