Not making much progress with Lay-out in the garage due to cold weather and ill health so having seen one of the fiddle yard boards from the now defunct US Monon layout Vimes Street decided to have a go at creating a small layout that could be set up quickly and inside the house.
board measures 9 in by 48 in and will be connected to simple cassettes made for a past layout.
The time period selected uses some steam locos and early BR diesels i have in the collection and uses
Troutons is the new 4mm Modern image layout of the Wakefield Model Railway Society. It features a Heljan container crane, booking on point and scrap yard. The aim is to provide viewers with typical trains that would be seen passing through West Yorkshire. After the Wakefield show the team are now busily upgrading stock ready for the next exhibition. A log of progress can be found on the layout section of a RMweb.

Off work with chest infection, day time TV is terrible, never done a blog before so thought would give it a go. Working to convert a partially built Walthers Russell Plough to WC 301 that might end up having a few runs on WRMS Menasha layout which will be appearing at the Pontefract show 26/27th Jan 2013. This is one of the prototype photos being used.
Starting point for the conversion
Removal of all moulded on detail and detached side ploughs ready to be cut down
