OO Microlayout - "WOLDS-END"


Hornby Railmaster Automation Program

Posted by traction , 29 August 2011 - - - - - - · 453 views

Well I still can't decide what to do with the blank baseboard, it's a nice long fiddle yard at the minute that everyone can see.

I created this to see how well it works, on an end to end layout and the answer is very well.
You can slow the engines right down and have them creep up and hit the end platform under the station canopy which basically gives you...


What can I do on here?

I have been playing about with the Hornby Elite and Railmaster and thought it would be a great way to operate Wold's-End.

I have now removed the traverser and added an extension which I intially thought would be a nice long fiddle yard.

Having now fitted the board and laid the track I'm thinking I could actually use the last 400mm as a hidden fiddle...


N-gauge "Wolds-End" now has lights!

Posted by traction , 27 March 2010 - - - - - - · 1,103 views

Well trying to get everything done and dusted ready for Mansfield Exhibtion in April.

Lights are now wired up!
Still waiting for some more passengers to turn up, but it's very close to getting there.
Takes a bit of time before things start to run OK...with the small shunters anyway.

Here is the photo of the two layouts together, just to prove...

Mr Redgate Models has a lot to answer for!!!

Having met up with him today at Nottingham exhibition, a small passing remark was made........how about making Wold's End in T-gauge!!!

Now the T-gauge folks from Edinburgh were there:-(website) http://www.tgauge.co.uk/

With the T...


N-gauge Wolds end...getting there!

Well, as N-gauge Wold's End is starting to come together thought it about time I posted some pics.
Instead of just printing out a piture of the small terraced houses, I made enough room to actually have them as low relief.

I think it adds to the whole layout.

The book stall under the canpoy does have a figure inside and a light, just need to wire all...


N-gauge locos for Wold's End

Posted by traction , 02 March 2010 - - - - - - · 290 views

Ok, so no photos of N-Gauge Wold's-End but thought these are far better!!

As I wanted to try and make the OO and N layouts as close as possible, I have used the same rolling stock and locos on both.
The only locos I'm missing in N-gauge are the Class 24 D5038 and a Class 121 bubble car in BR blue/Grey.......come on Dapol.

So while items...


Another Wold's end in the making?

Posted by traction , 01 March 2010 - - - - - - · 220 views

Well the N-gauge Wolds end is coming along quite nicely and when I actually get some time at home instead of working away will get some photos!!

Thinking towards the future, looking at building another Wold's end, this time to complete the set it would be in O-gauge.

Now looking about have found that I can get most of the modern diesels that I...


Why do we do it to ourselves?!

Wolds-End is now virtually complete.
Had a bit of a running session, it does take a long time to work things out to move, so great operating potential.
Picked up my Class 24 with sound from Digitrains yesterday, although not allowed to run it as it's my christmas present.
Looking around the shop I saw that you can actually get the Class 24 in N-gauge,...


The Warehouse is busy!

I have now added the lighting to the inside and outside of the warehouse and added a few store operatives Posted Image...


Lighting up the population!

Posted by traction , 28 November 2009 - - - - - - · 391 views

Well, getting there very slowly!

Quite a few lights added to the layout, along with some people.
The figures are the Bachmann Scenecraft ones, not cheap at ??5 for 6 but very effective and excellent detail.

A few more station staff to fit, then onto populating the warehouse.

The picture below shows the...
