Seems like an age since I spent anytime on RMweb, but every time I return I always have a look in at your blog. It is an absolute pleasure to view your pics and I’m always ‘double taking’ at them. This has to be the most perfect layout currently in the hobby. Simply because it’s complete and fully working - you don’t mess about, do you? I also love the pics and description of the whole layout - should be an update every two months in the magazines. Thank you for posting and giving the rest of us constant inspiration. Happy New Year and wish you happy modelling for 2018. Keep posting whatever you do. Regards, Mike.

Thanks Mike. That's very kind. It's the feedback I get, yours included, that makes posting on here so worthwhile. I love your diorama shots by the way.

 

If WW shows anything, I hope it's that with a little willingness to compromise (ready to run track, foreshortening of distances, etc.) and a little courage (weathering and detailing/modifying of RTR stock and so on, plus lots of plasticard), it's possible to build something that stirs memories and recreates the atmosphere of a real place in a relatively small area.

 

I fully intend to keep posting and have enough plans for the layout to keep me busy for many years yet. 

 

Cheers and thanks again,

Dave

Thanks Stewart. I'm duly humbled by the nominations and votes.

 

The cheque's in the post. I s'pose you'll be wanting more this year with nominations and votes in both categories?  :jester:

A very happy and healthy New Year everyone!

 

Just thought I'd post a pic or two of wot I dun on my Xmas hols this year...

 

I spent my spare moments making some buildings for the inside of the shed on Road 8 at the depot. The building on the left is the original Mechanical Foreman's office. In the middle is a ramp which I think leads to a door in the wall of the building which leads through to the inspection platforms in the adjacent building. On the right is another office which was located in the far left-hand corner of the building. 

 

It wasn't easy trying to work out the geometry and relative positions of the various structures based on a very limited number of somewhat murky shots of the interior of the building. These structures represent a simplified and scaled down version of what I think I am seeing in the photos.

 

Basic painting is now under way, still a bit bright at this stage of course. There's plenty of detailing still to do as well.

Santa brought me a couple of Kernow Models' Tiger bogie china clay wagons this year, which will be added to my Speedlink rake.

 

Hope to be back soon with some more updates.

 

Cheers for now,

Dave

No, my fees are very reasonable.

Well, in that case, as a generous gesture, I'd like to offer you twice what I paid you last year Stewart.
