  1. All the track is now laid but requires the check rails fitting and sleepers to be gapped. Point motors already fitted so hopefully wiring can be completed by the weekend. Track infill will then be fitted and ground levels established. Buildings just plonked.
  2. Thanks Barnaby,for your supoort. Just a couple or so of photos of the last two days in the workshop. The Baldwin is a WrightLines kit fitted with a potescape RG4. You can see the canalside factories for Harts Hill in the background.
  3. Hi Jordan, after what had become a very frustrating time, with 7 hospital appointments cancelled I had lost all interest in the layout. Harts Hill is now in the loft and will be gathering dust for a while. I have started a much smaller model (0N-30) Hookton and the Lipp Vale. This is a small fishing village on the Dorset coast with a narrow gauge railway. In my usual style I have created the story first before commening the modelling. Baseboard 4ft x 3ft has been built mainly from recycling New Level Mill and I have constructed the 2 lefthand turnouts for the inglenook. The name Hookton and t
  4. Just creating the scene on board 1 . Figures, gate and posts just placed for effect.

  6. Another bostin building. DadOfJohn
  7. Harts Hill update. Positioning a couple of buildings just to check everything fits. The roadway will be surfaced with Chincilla sand/grit leaving the inset sets exposed to give it well worn appearance. The Cock Inn will have a wall and gates. The goods shed etc are not yet set in place.

  9. Raw video footage of Harts Hill my under construction 0 gauge layout. Just to show it works. Unfinished buildings plonked on just for effect.

  11. Harts Hill latest progress: Elec trickery is now completed on all 4 boards and it worked first time with no under the breath mutterings. Well pleased, Okay I know it is only 5 live frog points and standard DC wiring but it’s tidy and working. I will post a video when I can set the whole layout up on the trestles, well 2 folding trestle tables, quick relatively inexpensive strong and easy to store. It has meant not having to build any baseboard legs as I have done in the past. Hey Ho, there is of course a downside in as much that I still have my New Level Mill layout taking space in the man cav

  13. Just to stop speculation. The problem is not a simple certificate issue. It is an issue with their web service provider. The Guild IT team is in contact with the tech people at the service provider. There is nothing further the Guild IT team can do until the service provider is able to restore the website.
  14. Hi Jim, thanks for your kind comments. Hope you are keeping safe and still modelling. cheers
  15. The design allows the layout to be split into two inglenooks. Boards 1&2 and 3&4, 3&4 being the easiest option but the hardest to operate. All good fun should I wish not to have the whole layout set up.
