End of the line...literally...

Evening all, 
Just to confirm that following a lot of recent thoughts, especially over the weekend I have decided that I will no longer be pursuing this layout so effectively withdrawing from the MRJ Cameo layout competition. 
Firstly I would like to say a big thanks to Richard (Ben Alder) for supplying me with lots of information and photograph...

Afternoon all, 
Those peeps familiar with my blogs will note that I seem to follow a similiar pattern...at some point, normally to do with my track building, I decide to scrap it and start over. 
This layout is no exception :o 
Following the one day show at BHMRC, I began to further the wiring and take each siding road by road. However my t...

Evening all, A quick entry following an appearance at the Burgess Hill MRC annual one day show yesterday. I used to be a member 35 years ago but now am happy to help out each year either exhibiting something or being a steward. This year I did a bit of both as I offered to plan the exhibition as I could do it in CAD. Then on Friday evening I arrived...

Just to advise that having now decided to submit Thurso into the MRJ/Wild Swan Cameo layout competition, progress on the layout will be documented at the following thread below set up especially for the entries:

I prefer Blogs to Threads personally so now doubt a...

Afternoon all and Happy Easter ;) 
Had last week off work and a short trip to BCN with my sketchbook and a couple of cold beers in the sun meant progress and next moves were hatched :sungum: 
It was brought to my attention that the MRJ were running a small cameo layout competition and upon purchase of said magazine and a couple of read throughs...

Evening peeps, 
Following hints in the last post that I was going to make some alterations and having got the week off for 1/2 term to thin out the garage it was natural that a suitable slot would be allocated to do some modelling. Still brimming with 2mmFS mojo after the AGM and the news that the Dapol 08 has slipped again meant an opportunity to re...

Evening peeps, 
Long time since my last entry on this as am dipping the toe in the senior scale at the moment (well I did turn 50 in April so felt it was time ;)) however this is still simmering away on the back burner.  
I am currently in the process of converting Kyle to DCC so the intention this will be wired to suit as you may recall the ide...

Good evening,

Unfortunately work has been busy and mojo zapped since the flurry of activity on my week off which got the project up and running.

That said, sketches still prevail in my sketchbook during journeys to work or en route to meetings.

A number of comments were received which questioned the small letterbox to the train shed...my youngest son w...

Afternoon all,

Many thanks for the interest shown in this new project - I would also like to mention that Richard (Ben Alder) has been very kind in helping me with research and information for this. Richard as you probably know has already built a fab model of Thurso (and Kyle!) in 4mm which covers much more than my extract will - Worry not, Richard...I...

Good evening,

Here's a welcome to my new project which I eluded to on my recent Kyle blog entry. I say new, but actually it's an idea that first surfaced in 2009 whilst I was building Kyle in a box file. It was based upon building a similiar small extract from the prototype but centred on Thurso with the idea it could be attached to the other end of the...
