  1. I rather like the idea of platform 1 only being used for passenger services during the morning and evening peaks and being used for parcels the rest of the time. That way it might suggest the gradual running down of the terminus on it's way to possible closure or a rebirth in future years that could tie in with the tramlink and/or Thameslink. Terry
  2. Great having a local wood merchant. They even cut it for you. In my opinion the best thing about this thread has been the research. Probably even more fun than making the actual layout. But then I am a historian, after a fashion. Really enjoying it, Terry
  3. Not sue if this is relevant, and you may well have seen the lower photo, but it too shows the first class accomodation. Terry
  4. So all those concerts I went to at Fairfield Halls never happened! Terry
  5. Good luck with this William, as always I'll follow your progress and thoughts. Terry
  6. Death Line is on Talking Pictures at 9pm tonight. Terry
  7. Good to see you back William. I suppose it all depends on what you want as an outcome. Is a continuous circuit a given, or would you be happy with end to end? There is always the option of sitting and watching trains go by, not forgetting the opportunity to run in engines over a long distance. I get the impression that for you it is the building and operating that is more important. I may be wrong of course. Terry
  8. This is most of it! Terry
  9. I hate to point this out, especially to those like me who lived through it, but the year Abbey Road was released is closer to WW1 than today. I'll get my coat. Terry
  10. And of course, when CJF drew a later version with added modules a small turntable facility was included. If built in sections it could be expanded at a later date if required, as well as for exhibitions. Terry
  11. Hi William, A lovely photo of Haywards Heath station. I have a suggestion. You have spent a lot of time thinking and planning along the lines of a HV/Minories concept. You have also said that a purpose built shed for the railway could follow in the fullness of time. As 4mm is the more viable option for the LCDR era how about building at least part of your terminus (or another segment of a larger layout) in the spare bedroom while building and accumulating the relevant stock? When you are in a position to move outdoors you would then have a head start on a full layout. I get the impression that the building of a model gives you at least as much pleasure of operation. By the way, I'm just around the corner from you in Lindfield, so if you ever need another pair of hands to help move stuff feel free to ask. Good luck, Terry
  12. I'll happily scan and email the drawing and photos if required. Terry
