Shed scenes at dusk

I really should take the camera up there rather than relying on phone snaps.

March 2018. S and D (ish), if it had survived beyond March 1966.....

A possible scenario if through trains had continued over the S and D for a bit longer, stalwarts such as a 7F mix with some diesels that could conceivably have appeared. Don't take it too literally, it's just a "what if".

A bit more scenic stuff, oh and some locos and trains.

2017. Some scenic stuff including.......ballast :o

Posted by Tim Hall , 04 December 2017 - - - - - - · 376 views

Having relaid and remodelled some of the track at the end of 2016, I left it a few months to see if I was happy with it all.
Eventually, this autumn, I decided crack on with bits of scenery (see photos) and some ballasting (50/50 water/ pva, a few drops of washing up liquid and some black poster paint to weather it a bit). The shed areas had black poster...

2016, a few changes

Posted by Tim Hall , 22 November 2017 - - - - - - · 269 views

Late in 2016, after a long period of playing trains, but not doing much with the layout, I decided to remove the little used "freight loop" and with it the diamond crossings and three way points that caused more derailments than I was happy with. By asking handyman Mark (whilst visiting to do some work in the kitchen) to put a larger fillet in one corner...

Onwards into 2015

Posted by Tim Hall , 21 November 2017 - - - - - - · 257 views

Three circuits, a fiddle yard, and a small branch line terminus appeared, as did a rather unconvincing fourth track crossing from the 2nd circuit to inside the 3rd one via diamond crossings, though I found that I rarely used it. 
The "Hall" mock up nameplate was made by friends at the railway I was then a volunteer at, to celebrate my half century.

Progress 2014

Track laying soon got going, using Peco code 100 and insulfrog points, on 3mm cork (bought a massive roll off ebay for less than £25, only used about half for the whole layout). Three continuous circuits were planned, each spitting into three in the fiddle yard at the far end of the room from the door. Due to the shape of the room, I tucked a long pl...

Introduction

Posted by Tim Hall , 21 November 2017 - - - - - - · 218 views

We had the attic converted to a room about 4 years ago, to bedroom standards if we ever need to sell.
Velux windows, laminate floor, radiator, fire door, loads of storage space, under the eaves. Our friendly local handyman, Mark Webber built the baseboards in two days, for the price of a couple of medium sized locos, as I had bought the baseboard material...
