  1. Hi all, I did a search to see if there was any other questions along these lines but there was nothing on RMweb. I am Modelling a Fictitious Goods yard off the main line in the general Southall-Ealing area and am looking for information regarding what classes of Tank Engines would be around in the last years of the GWR -1945-47 I am not sure if anyone knows this information or not but I am hoping that someone might be able to point me in the right direction in terms of Books etc I am new to the hobby and as such any help would be much appreciated. I know that pannier tanks were common but not sure of any others! Regards, Kegan
  2. Unfortunately I ran out of funds and thus did not get very far (bought some points and 1 wagon!) I am still looking to build it though in the coming months, albeit in a different form.
  3. This is simply amazing and has certainly given me a big push towards the final track plan, Thanks so much!! I have a 2x2ft space for a Fiddle yard on the RH side and I was thinking Cassettes for the LH side (Main lines only on LH side) Just, wow. =D
  4. I liked what maunsel did and actually highlighted the parts that are making the problem!!
  5. I really don't know what to do now, thinking of abandoning the project, I just wanted to have some fun shunting some wagons around and try to keep it at least a bit accurate to how a real railway works, you guys have all got me confused, so now I don't know where to go with this layout. I wanted to do a whole lot of shunting puzzles, with some interesting rolling stock. I've read a fair amount into the area I'm modelling: a portion of Brenton docks mixed with the Express Dairies Creamery in Acton. Fictional town Spent 3 hours trying to improve the plan and then I get someone telling me it's now all wrong,I'm just starting out, though it'd be fun to model an area around Brenton/Acton. Thinking of giving up and spending the money on something else. I don't even know what all this railway jargon means "Headshunt" Or "Trap Point".
  6. First of all, thank you guys for all the help! I've read all your comments, done some more research and given my plan a makeover. Is this any better? Still unsure which should be "Up" or "Down"? I've been given permission my the other half to extend the layout to 7ft 8in, which allows for more space at eh ends!
  7. Hi all, I am new to this forum and seeking to make this model as realistic as possible so I would appreciate any pointers on the layout of it and where certain points would be and which of the two main lines would be "up" and "down" The water continues up and under the two main lines on the left and there will be a small bridge across it, there will be a road to allow lorries to visit the goods yard, dock and creamery at the front-right of the layout. Thanks!
