So to fill the time Im going to build a diorama that will eventually evolve in to my exhibition layout.
The layout will be very basic in that it will be two tracks from the western Welsh portal of the Severn Tunnel to the Caldicot road bridge
There is a scissors cross over under the Caldicot road Bridge and a trap point on the exit of the down main right by the tunnel entrance.
A few years ago a good friend supplied me with the signalling diagram and a picture of Severn Tunnel West signal Box so I have commissioned Laser Craft to do the Signal box & the Tunnel entrance.
Jon Fitness of this parish is going to build the main signal closest to the box.
Apart from a fog mans hut a few small stores buildings and relay boxes thats the only buildings on the project.
Im going to use Peco Flat Bottom track through out except for the points. All my pictures from my time period late 50s early 60s this was the track used. Its funny but you dont see many steam era layouts that use flat bottom track!
Grass is going to be done with Teddy Bear fur like on Pete Watermans Hatton bank. Oh and I need one two aspect Colour light signal.
It should be around 20 foot long once complete.
I would like to add in the correct 1 in 90 gradient so can some one work that out over 20 foot? http://www.rmweb.co...._DIR#/crazy.gif
I havent got many picture I can publish but heres one.
