Update on Almere Road TMD - 27/03/2012

Posted by Ydna , 27 March 2012 - - - - - - · 364 views

Hi folks,

Thought I might update you as I've not posted on this blog for ages. There's not been a lot of progress on Almere because I've been concentrating my modelling time on Bexford TMD, my test-piece. I'm really glad I chose to do a test-board for two reasons; one of which is that I've learnt a few lessons in ballasting and...

Update on Almere Road TMD - 11/03/2012 (including an introduction to the new test-board)

Hi,

Not much to update you on the subject of Almere Road TMD unfortunately. Work has been slow lately because I've been spending ages waiting for the varnish or paint to dry on my warehouse units. I've been quite busy as well so I haven't been able to do anything in between waiting for them...

AWS Ramps

I recently bought a pack of four AWS ramps by Peco after inspiration from the article about painting / weathering them, featured in the Railway Modeller March Issue. I decided that as I couldn't use them on Almere Road (because they're not any use on TMDs as there aren't any signals), I could make some use of them on my home layout.

Here...

Another progress report on the weekend's work on the layout....

Well, I've fully sanded down all the filler and repainted the non-scenic parts of the layout structure / board black. I've also completed the warehouse MDF cutouts, as seen in the pictures below...

Lightly weathering the Hornby 20 Ton Brake Van (Almere Road TMD Wagon Stock Update 2)

Hi folks. I thought I might share with you my latest weathering project, the BR 20 Ton Brake Van by Hornby.

I purchased this model a month or two back and from the start I got it for a reason... Primarily to pull behind my Break-Down Crane. Yesterday I got round to the 'griming it up' :)

I began by giving giving the model a quick rinse with tap...

Almere Road TMD Wagon Stock Update

Thought i might take the chance to introduce you to some of my stock that isn't in the 'Locomotive' category. Obviously the layout is a TMD, and very small one at that, meaning that there isn't a lot of space for wagons to sit a round. However, I have been working on weather one or two of my wagons to show off on the layout from time to...

Update on Almere Road TMD - 26/02/2012 Hi folks, thought I might update you on the layout.

Over the previous week, since the last update, I've got on with completing the retaining wall structure at the back. It's now completely finished, and after purchasing a...

In the previous entry, I wrote a breif discription of the story behind the layout and I also attatched a basic track-plan just to give you a rough idea of what it'll look like.

So, down to the...

Over the past few months, I've been constructing the baseboards for my new exhibition layout called Almere Road TMD. The project began when, a few months ago, I felt like putting a small, compact, cheap and hopefully simple exhibition layout together. I've always been interested in the...
