Will mount switches along the front panel for individual control of each building.
Looks like they need a draught excluder in the office.
Thanks for looking.
Began to work on the hard standing before the bridge using the workshop from the Metcalfe engine shed, the height of the buildings will gradually increase towards the left hand end. Glad I’ve got the brewery on the shelf as...
What is worrying is how the pigs get about...yesterday they managed to get on the roof, when I started today they were looking over the fence. My wife denies all knowledge... Thanks for looking.
There are some nice combinations creating a long platform servicing all the buildings, so this would suit the long straight track at the back.
At the left hand end I'm thinking of combining a couple of warehouse kits to make a large structure as a co...
Frank watched it from the cab as nothing was moving. He hasn't said much but he wants the site work finished so he can get some steam up and move some goods.
Grounds a bit wet yet, so the guys wanting...
Now to move on to the retaining walls, then got to think of the industries. A Metcalfe brewery, warehouses and small factory and entrance in stock along with an engine shed. The engine...
Moving on slowly, track painted, bridge nearing completion, coach partially finished. Trees only in place for planning. While I was at it realised that I'd not finished painting the track on the main lines, so spent some time finishing that job. Looking to complete later today and hopefully having ballast drying overnight. Thanks for looking.
Over a significant number of years I've been collecting locos, models and other bits that I thought would be useful if I ever got around to making a model railway. For the past two years, I've had more time and finally got around to making progress and made space for this shelf layout. This is my first layout, and is more trial and error than anything else as can be seen in the entries. I like the speed at which Metcalfe models can be built, and with a bit of effort improved, not so keen on plastic kits but I'll see how it goes. This is very much a learning process. I have no idea how it will look by the end, I'm just making it up as I go along.
Thanks for taking an interest in my efforts. It is much appreciated.
