Getting Ready for Warley

Posted by D869 , 19 November 2014 · 921 views

Some of you may have seen the two new signals over on the 2mm Workbench thread. Last night they were planted on the platform. Unfortunately I failed to photograph the little signal covering trailing moves over the carriage siding points before the station board was boxed up ready for Friday.

Anyway, here are a couple of pics of the bracket signal covering the same points. The shunt arm covers the move into the sidings, the 4' arm into the platform and the call-on for use if there are already vehicles in the platform.

I must get round to colouring those bits of insulation with something more subdued. The planking is a rather more stylish shade of wood effect than intended too!

There are lots of other items of work done since our last outing including a lot of scenic work on the beach, a locally relevant boundary on the 'country' end of the layout, some further work on the backscene and some changes in the fiddle yard. I've probably forgotten some credits, so apologies to those involved.

Looks very nice. I look forward to seeing it this weekend.

Thanks Gareth. Look forward to seeing you too, plus of course any other residents of RMWeb-land.

Tom,

 

You won't have to wander very far, we are next door to Highbury (barring the 2mm Association Stand and a pillar which separate the 2 layouts).

I'm sure we can arrange for your look to include a session or two at the controls :)

 

Always assuming that Jerry will allow his staff some time off ;)

I've just seen the floor plan and it seems St Ruth and Highbury are only separated by the 2mm SA stand, so I'm sure some cross operator exchange could be easily arranged :D Tom.
Very nice work Andy - I won't be able to get to the show so hope all goes well - look forward to see some pics...;)
