Only just picked up on is wonderful thread (how I missed it I'll never know) just want to say how beautiful the layout looks, each and every detail hits the spot . . . . its like looking through the pages of an Ian Allan colour portfolio on GWR branch lines, a real visual treat :wink:

Smashing!

This is a cracking layout, full of atmosphere. Your father has to be congratulated for creating such a superb model. It is inspirational, and really should be published in one of the magazines.

It is a real master in 7mm scale modelling. Just out of interest John how much stock does he have? I have seen a couple of 57xx Tanks.

Just the pair of tanks and a Heljan hymek. He's on a pension y'know :lol:

I built the first pannier (the round cab) about 12 years ago, he bought the other built, but rejigged it himself. He has a couple of coaches - a JLTRT bset (1 coach only!) and a sytrex suburban, and between us over the years we've built far too many wagons. (Oh and he's rather fond of diecasts too, as may be glimpsed in some of the pics.)

Yes, a 14xx or Prairie might be nice, but don't come cheap, in either time or money. Mind you, his chemo is holding the big C at bay for now so the time thing hasn't been too much of an issue! 8)

He reads this occasionally so I hope i don't get in the bad books for mentioning the cancer.

Oops I've done it again.... :oops:

Hi.

The layout is about 16ft by about 3 at its deepest point. Imagine a 16*8 box, the front of the layout describes an (uneven) arc from front corner to front corner. So when you sit or stand at the controls (by the station) the layout curves away behind you at both ends.

And yes, I think the station is Invertrain. I bought it but so long ago I can't honestly remember. Abbotsbury branch I imagine? Not sure about the goods shed - might be scratch or kitbashed - I'm not sure so I'll ask.

Since joing RMWeb and seeing Onslaughts (Phil of this Parish) layout and workbench, coupled with Chagford O gauge to me has become more appealing. I just currently lack the space for a major project.
My own layout that I am planning to build in P4 will come in at around 16 - 20ft by about 8ft, so if this was constructed in O gauge I would need double that amount of space! However a terminus in a shed, running round the garden is looking very tempting. :tongue

I love the restraint shown coupled with great observation and modeling. A wonderful layout and one that shows, to my way of thinking at least, that a smaller layout concept executed really extremely well can convey bucket loads of atmosphere.
