Well despite MetrOLands very generous help on my last post, I am still having problems thinking about how I will wire the layout, I knew that Electro-frogs would be a little harder than my usual Insul-frog points but who would have thought it would be this hard? :) So any ideas, I have managed to scribble down the track plan, unless it changes again,...

Well in one of my more recent posts, a regular contributor on here who will remain nameless, oh what they hell it was MIKKEL , said that my station canopy was curvy, how rude :)

To be fair, he was right (I cant believe I have committed that to writing), but on the other hand he was just stating the obvious.....so I thought I better do something obvious...

I really don't know how I did it, but I managed to find a little time to spend on the layout over the weekend (well I suppose its not really a layout yet if ever), and typical of me rather than spend it on something useful I used it all up working on a little redevelopment. My intention for Lugsdale road was to depict a little LMS station on the outs...

Well it seems to me that it has been a very long time since my last update, but I can hear people screaming from here that it has not been long enough, still I will ignore the screams of complaint and carry on. So what had been the reason for such a long period since updates, its not because I was abducted by Aliens and taken back to my home planet f...

Well I don't know how I managed to do it, but I managed to find some modelling time and managed to spend it productively for once. In my previous post I mentioned that I had decided to that the station buildings should be modelled on those used by the LNWR. As most people know, they built some of their stations from standardised wooden panels, and as...

Well as I mentioned in my last post, I had managed to pull of the crime of the century and managed to get away with just applying emulsion paint to the backscenes on Lugsdale road. The good news is that the heat has died down now and the Domestic Overlord is still none the wiser, but not wishing to tempt fate further painting of the backscene will be...

Don't tell anyone especially the Domestic Overlord, but being the sneaky little chap that I am, I managed over the weekend to actually do some emulsion painting. 
In my opinion this was massively successful for at least two reasons, the first being that the painting was the actually to the backscenes on Lugsdale Road and not a wall in Price mansions,...

Modelling time, in fact any free time has been in very short supply lately, despite a career change that in theory would have given me more time to model, I appear to have an uncanny ability to fill this time with lots of none modelling stuff :(. As a result of this, perhaps I should have tittle this blog entry as "spot the progress"? One of the jobs...

Lugsdale Road - a little progress at a very slow pace

Progress on Lugsdale Road has been very, very slow of late, with the pressures of non modelling life taking up huge amounts of time, though any progress is a good thing? In my last update I mentioned that I would need a lot more buildings just on board 1 to try and create the cramped, dirty industrial town look I am trying to recreate. Then living in...

Well a tiny bit of progress has been made on the layout, in an attempt to create a "typical" industrial town. The problem is I will need a lot more buildings, perhaps I should have just modelled a nice rural location?

Im going to need a lot more buildings, and then they will need a lot of weathering.......is it two late to just start again, I mean all I...

What is it with time? Lately I am convinced that the only reason it exists is to wind me up. I have noticed for a while now that its been trying to get to me, but it's not going to beast me despite its latest crafty trick, but I have spotted its latest ploy and I'm putting it down in text so others can be forewarned. Have you noticed that they l...

I don't know how it happened, but I have managed to get a little modelling time over the last few days, so in a break away from producing endless buildings I thought I would work on my Tram idea. My initial idea was to try an add a little more movement to the new layout other than just the trains, I know there are various systems available to produce...

The last few weeks have been what could be called manic to say the least, the strange thing is you can always seem to find extra hours to spend at work, but you can never find hours to spend on modelling. As a result modelling time has been like a Midget Drug Dealer, in Very Short Supply, anyway I digress as a n LMS fan I managed to find a prototype...

Well spare time to actually do anything lately has been in incredibly short supply, and progress on any projects has almost stopped. With my recent lack of attendance lately I reckon the chaps at the Warrington Model Railway club must think I have given up on model railways and taken up a another hobby. Anyway on the weekend the postman delivere...

The modelling gods must be smiling on me lately or maybe they just pity me as they gave me a little more modelling time today, so I thought I would do a little more work on the buildings for Lugsdale Road. I still working on my plan to gain access to the inside of a pub only so I can do some research on the interior, so that I can make a better model...

I'm not sure how this has happened but recently I seem to be finding just enough modelling time to actually make noticeable progress on may latest projects. So much so that the corner Pub I have been building for Lugsdale road now has its front sides fully glazed. I have even managed to apply a little colour to the roof and a little detail on the chimney...

Well despite the lack of presents at Christmas from Santa, I must have been a good boy as the Domestic Overlord let me have a little time off from my chores to do some modelling :) So I got my paints out and decided to apply the final finish to the fa├žade on the corner pub for the new layout, the aim was to portray a stucco finish on the upper floors...

Well I have had a couple of days off , because the people at work claimed it was Christmas, but I had my doubts as if it was Christmas that would mean the Fat Man in the Red Suit would bring me some presents. So I laid in wait to see if this Christmas rumour was true, and hoped if it was I would actually get a present this year, or I would spend anot...

It might just be my glacial pace, but the construction of the buildings on Lugsdale road is taking slightly longer than I planned, but they have got to the stage of getting their first coat of colour. I'm looking to create a typical urban look of an average town in the Northwest, so a bit like me the shabby look is the one I'm aiming for, so the firs...

I'm sure you are all getting bored with my updates on this project, so I think I will start to increase the length of time between updates, at least for the following 2 reasons. 1. There are far better things to read about on this forum. 2. If I post too many, the Domestic Overlord may conclude that I have too much free time, so increase the lis...
