Welcome to RMWeb, and what a nice looking layout - anything that includes lots of boxes is a winner in my book! :)

Thanks for the kind comments

The Wagons are all Dapol and arranged into three fixed rakes

One consists of IKA mega frets, the other two are a mixture of FEA spine and KQA pocket wagons all are weathered see pic (all 3 types)

I have to echo the comment made by Glorious NSE, I also enjoy anything container based especially one as well done as this. Please keep the photos coming.

Wow - looks great! Will be great to see more pictures!

How difficult was it to repaint the Heljan container crane - I've been too nervous to do much to mine after what it cost to buy! Any tips?

Also, where did the lorry trailer come from?

Thanks.

Hi Alan,
Welcome to the wonderful world of RMweb, what a cracking looking layout you have there. I have to say I am rather partial to the freightliner models. Looking forward to more pictures of this one.

Cheers
Scott

There is a story about the cranes...............Yes there were two, I have one and my friend the other He painted his first including the spreader (it never worked again) :( so beware

I airbrushed mine with Tamiya acrylic, it took 12 hours and lots of masking.............and yes i was nervous.

The trailer I scatch built from plasticard, based on pictures.

Thanks Alan - maybe I'll leave that until I can properly concentrate and give it some time - I don't envy your friend's situation! I do think your crane looks great though!

I could be wrong as I have been wrong many times before but did this layout appear in Saltney near Chester last year as part of a modern image exhibition?

I'm not that much into modern image (ok folks hold fire!) but I have to agree this looks fantastic and if it was the one at Saltney it worked like a dream as I remember.
Thanks for posting!

I think the one you saw might have been Nick Gurney's 'Holland Park'- Nick lives somewhere in the North West, IIRC. Both are excellent layouts, though.

Again many thanks for the comments, I hope to take more pics when I have time.....

The straddle carrier is the work of a very good friend Mick Lawrence, I had a trip to Southampton to photograph the cranes and took a pic of 03 Mick saw the picture and a few days latter turned up with the model you see on Warren Lane Its all plasticard and oddbits but I think its fantastic.

Welcome to RMWeb Alan.

Nice looking layout you have.

My brother is taking an interest in this thread as he used to be a shunter and had a stint on Morris 1 & 2 (The overhead cranes and their respective call signs!) at Lawley Street.

Here is a link to my mates fotopic which features a few photos that may be of reference:

Hi,

Welcome to RMweb!

What a great layout! Really captures the atmosphere of a container terminal well!

I like the mobile crane, very realistic! Is the main crane a Heljan version?

Keep up the good work, will follow with great interest!
