Am I Ready?

Am I Ready?

Well, no, not yet. Some detailing to do but I do have a boxfile for the Mansfield Show this weekend lol. I will finish it off after the show, need a fiddle yard and people, pit props etc.

Catching Up

Catching Up

After being a bit ill the last few days a bit of a catch up was in order yesterday. So building D was completed and the backscene added. This is a departure from the kit being an image of Linby Colliery gleaned from the internet, suitably sized and washed out in Photoshop to push it into the distance. It's a bit blurred but I think that helps with the false perspective too

Building A complete with lighting

Building A complete with lighting

Whilst the sheets for building B are waiting for the glue to dry I finished off building A.      I've also fitted two sets of led lights to the underside of the roof, one by the window and one by the open sliding doors

Hard Standing, Done

Hard Standing, Done

Well, another three evening sessions have now resulted in FULLY inset trackwork Building 1 is also stuck down. I'm going to sort the electrical connections next I think. I have my standard 2 pin din socket so any controller I have can be plugged in

Hard Standing, Hard Going

Hard Standing, Hard Going

Two evenings in and I'm sort of half way through the hard standing. I guess I'm taking my time as I want it right, but boy is it hard going!      I've also run out of UHU

Trackwork complete

Trackwork complete

Just a quick entry before the forum goes down again at 1pm (which it didn't in the end!) Trackwork complete, wired up and tested. the wagon only tracks that run 90 degrees to the running lines are not powered though. The little 0-6-0 needs a run up to get over the turntables too!

That's about it for now

That's about it for now

Here's building A about as far as I can get until track laying is completed.     I've since added the doors, door rails and downpipes etc. Here's a couple of shots that show the modified rear entry through building A for a bit of OO9 track. The flaps at the back will be wrapped round the edges of the box file once the hole is cut       No more updates until after I have got the y point and cork underpay at Warley....   UPDATE:

What? another Colliery Layout?

What? another Colliery Layout?

We are having a Box File Challenge at next year's Mansfield Show, so as, Scalescenes have just released their box file kit I thought that with a few subtle modifications I could make another corner of Summat Colliery. This time it will be served by the internal narrow gauge system but with a section of standard gauge for exchanges etc.   I already have a few lengths of "crazy track" so just need to get a narrow gauge Y point and I'm away.   Here's how far I have got so far
