  1. Some models from my Rossiter Rise layout. 2 car motor/control trailer as referred to above. 2 car Q Stock. This replicates a photo in a book by Brian Hardy showing exactly this formation being used on the Acton Shuttle as replacement because neither of the single cars normally used were available. Terry
  2. Also on the layout.....other properties.... Randall and Hopkirk. Bartholomew, Wiseman and Previn. Grimsdale. Tony Angelino. Joan Denver. Mick Leach.
  3. Many thanks Phil. Hopefully you'll get the opportunity to have a go at Rossiter Rise. Terry
  4. I had received some interest in Earl's Court and I have agreed a deal. Less than the target figure I had set but nevertheless I am happy with the sum agreed. Many thanks to all those who expressed such complimentary comments over the last few days. Terry
  5. Photo of station area. Thanks Andy
  6. Absolutely. However, I have had interest from somebody who wants to make minor modifications to make it suitable for Southern Region use. It could easily be adapted for any region simply by removing/altering the 3rd/4th rails and changing the colour of the totem signs.
  7. I agree that you can choose the subject of a commission. However, 'a well used exhibition layout that has already been on the circuit for a number of seasons????' The reason the layout has appeared at over 50 shows is because exhibition managers wanted to book it because people wanted to see it. Although 'well used' it is still in fine working order and minor alterations and remedial work has regularly been undertaken. I had previously been contacted by an admirer of the layout asking if he could buy it. I have also had two serious enquiries from people by private message. All these people want the layout for their own private use, not to exhibit. So the fact it has been 'on the circuit' is irrelevant to them, other than the fact that it gave them an opportunity to see the layout in the first place. Anyone who is familiar with Earl's Court will appreciate the HUNDREDS of hours that went in to it, over a 6 year period. It is unique. The asking price is an effort on my part to recoup something towards these hours, and the not insignificant cost of materials and items used. At the end of the day if one or more people think it is worth what I am seeking then that's fine. Nobody is being forced into buying it and if people think it is not worth the money or it would be better to rip up the track and wiring and sell it for scrap then they are, of course, entitled to their opinion. I have had enormous pleasure exhibiting the layout, as have my co-operators Tony Dean and Harry Pollard. Plus the numerous people who have 'had a go' at lunchtimes and when I needed a hand. And there are reasons why I have made the very difficult decision to part with it. I sincerely hope that somebody will buy it so that it will continue to give pleasure, even if it is only to somebody in their home. Terry
  8. Many thanks. My latest layout is Rossiter Rise. Will be showing in early 2020 at Stafford Alexander Palace and Bristol. Will also feature in BRM magazine around early March. Terry
  9. As requested, photo showing arrangement of points to fiddle yard.
  10. After much contemplation I am offering for sale my Exhibition Model Railway Layout 'Earl's Court' This award winning layout has appeared at over 50 exhibitions, including Warley, Alexander Palace, Doncaster, Railex....etc It has also been featured in Model Rail, BRM Magazine and Railway Modeller. Included in the sale is.... The main scenic board, together with front industrial buildings. The centre board, which houses the electronics, including the over-bridge with its shops. The third board, which completes the fiddle yard. The front panel, which includes the row of highly detailed shops, complete with glazed viewing slots to see stock and the fiddle yard. All legs and supports plus front curtain. Lighting strip. Many buildings include interior detailing and lighting. No stock is included in the sale. Nor the dcc controller, although the sockets for NCE Powercab will be left in situ. The layout is approx 10'6" long and breaks down into sections for easy transport. Track is Peco code 75 with some tracks being modelled as 4 rail to suit North London Lines and Underground. Could easily be converted to 3 rail SR. There are no points on the scenic section but points in the fiddle yard are Peco Electrofrog, controlled with Seep switches. The multiple tracks in the fiddle yard allow a variety of stock movements to take place. More photos can be seen at ecmr.webs.com Here's what the renowned modeller Chris Nevard had to say about the layout http://nevardmedia.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/a-most-unusual-gwr-branch-line-terminus.html Collection from Witney, Oxfordshire. Delivery may be possible by van at 25p/mile return trip. It is listed on Ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174106871927 If you feel you may be interested in the layout please feel free to message me. I'm hoping it goes to a good home!
  11. I agree about spud motors. Had problems with them over the years. Tried one and then a pair on my standard tube stock on Rossiter Rise. Gave up in the end and fitted modified Underground Ernie motor and trailing bogies. A big improvement and dcc ready.
  12. Good information Chris. Earl's Court layout is taking a break for refurbishment until early 2021. But when it returns I'm planning on running a 119 set with Hawkesworth coach. Seems like the lnfo you have suggests I could run some odd combinations as well. Terry
  13. Looking forward to being there with Rossiter Rise
