  1. Hi Rob, I am afraid to report that I haven't touched the layout in a number of weeks, life and other hobbies have been getting in the way, such as firing this mighty stead: I have just returned from the IOWSR 50th Anniversary Gala, if that helps to wet the appetite.... I must find some time, and inclination, to do some modelling....
  2. The scene is developing nicely! What are the plans for a backscene?
  3. Looking good, I look forward to seeing further progress.
  4. The baseboard looks like an interesting idea, I'll be interested to see how it lasts. Thanks for the comments regarding the WHR Layout, it was my first foray into modelling for about 10 years and was built under the (self inflicted) time pressures of lockdown and so has a few areas I know I could do better next time! I'm trying hard to resist starting another OO9 Layout/Diorama and this isn't helping! Looking forward to seeing the layout progress, keep up the good work.
  5. Looking good Tom Looking good. How have you constructed the baseboards? Will
  6. Looking good Nile. I see you mentioned frog polarity switching and your wire in tube point control. I’ve not seen anyone do frog polarity switching (does it work on the blades too?) on OO9 points. How exactly did you wire this?
  7. Looking good Nile. What's the plan for a backscene?
  8. Looks like an interesting project, keep up the good work. What do you think you will be able to get into the loop/headshunt? It's hard to tell what it will take once allowing for clearances.
  9. I’m not so sure it’s Salmon Pink and Chocolate Brown, they started painting LSWR vehicles into holly green from 1920, I think, and it seems to say ‘Southern Railway’ in between windows below the roof. I wonder if it’s just a reflection on account of the body side curvature which is making the colours seem different?
  10. Hi Schooner, I like the look of the shed, I think it’ll be a lovely feature. With regard to some of the questions, I think it’ll work nicely but I often find with these things it’s just a case of seeing how it looks on the layout and making it look prototypical etc. Keep up the good work, the sea air must be doing something...!
  11. You could get 5xA1 sheets of 10mm stuff for £36 on ebay, not cheap but not awful....
  12. Hi Jack, I wrote about using Foamboard in another thread, as follows: Foamboard is an interesting material to work with, you definitely need to clad it in some sort of Ply if you're planning on moving the layout through around, as it's not very knock resistant. Make sure you use PVA and a hot glue gun for the joints, I've gone back in a few places where I just used hot glue during construction to add a bit more strength to the joints. Also be mindful of if you're going to have an integral backscene or not, on Shalfleet Quay I've only got a backscene on
