I've been beavering away for the past year or so building a 1:32 (Gauge 1) layout for our annual October event at Shepshed,Leics.. which was held last Saturday. The general idea was to see what could be done on a 7ft 6 ins x 2ft baseboard in G1 similar to my previous O gauge layout 'Alexandra Yard' though that was 6ft x 1ft 10ins. Anyhow the attached photos show what has been achieved so far, the layout being far from finished as there is a LOT of small detail yet to be added. The theme is a small quay 'somewhere' in the UK c 1910 , home to a couple of my kit built Manning Wardle 0-6-o's and a few wagons (all of which are scratchbuilt). The great thing about layouts like this is you can tie yourself up in knots shunting wagons though, as I found out last Saturday, three link couplings can drive you to despair in any scale!!
