  1. Sat 9th - Solihull Model Railway Circle - Annual Model Railway Exhibition St Marys Church Hall, Hobs Meadow, Solihull, West Midlands http://www.ukmodelshops.co.uk/events/19876-SolihullModelRailwayCircleExhibition
  2. Hi Both, the micro albeit just the scenic section will be on the O gauge Guild Stand. The figure is from France https://www.abe44.fr/en/figurine-1-43/1256-f.html although their site is currently being updated.. cheers
  3. Now you don't expect to find dog poo around here.
  4. Thanks, the whole area is 2mm liteply scribed with a scrawker, painted with Tamiya acrylics and shaded with a soft lead pencil then sealed with testors dull cote. I have included a photo of the fiddle yard attached. The photo board not completed is a record of all my previous layouts in my Black Country theme.
  5. Boxing clever or just in case. I have constructed perhaps better described as butchered some wood a folding base support for the layout. It's rather like a folding paste table which can be carried like a suitcase and then opened out to allow the lockable legs to fold down and the whole thing act as the supporting structure. Lightweight, compact and easy to transport.

  7. Video failed so here's a couple of stills from todays play. Loco is a kit built ex Southern B4 once owned by Stewart and Loyds so technically a Black Country engine.

  11. Drains/manholes, those two blokes last seen outside the Jolly Collier (Wallows Pit) and a name. Note to self: fit those two buffer stops.
  12. Background, New Level Mill a 7mm Micro Layout New Level, now there’s a name to conjure with. Well no, abracadabra is a name to conjure with, but at least as a name New Level has a certain ring to it. So, questions, what’s it all about, why such a name, what and where is it? I like building layouts simply because my enjoyment comes from the journey, rather than the finished article. I know I should get out more, but then I’m an independent almost recluse like modeller. Well if I must start somewhere it’s better to start at the beginning. New Level is yet another Earl of Dudley based layout and yes, another piece of bunkum. As this will be the 12th layout in a series of Black Country themed layouts, it has as usual my trademark of massaged history and geographical manipulation. The layout is a snap shot of part of Round Oak Steel Works Brierley Hill and is based on a 7mm version of the Scalescenes boxfile layout. The name New Level Mill is from the New Level crossing on Level street which if you know the area is not at all level.
  13. My 0 gauge micro , just a picture from the box file section:
  14. Nice one Jeff, They do a 4 bay portacabin as a 7mm kit https://www.djparkins.com/product.php?productid=18345&cat=310&page=1 hope this helps Mike
