Well having bitten the bullet and decided that this would give me a nice change from my N gauge layout, and I because I have lots of OO bits hanging around here and there from other things, I've put together a rough plan (I might well work on the name, but it gives a good impression of the sort of scene I'm aiming for).
This is obviously just a VERY rough mock up, but the general plan is to have two tracks side by side with a coal office/shed and staithes in the nearest corner being filled from a wagon and the retaining wall in the back setting the dimensions of the scene and giving it a nice industrial feel with a Dapol/former arfix kitmaster 0-4-0 pug shunting things around. I'm undecided at the minute as to whether I'll be using the one in the picture, or buying another kit since this one is quite old and I think I could do a better paint job on a new kit. Or I might buy a new kit and set about hacking it about into a more generic industrial shunter.
