  1. The lights now on, shelter installed. So here’s an evening ScotRail crossover in around December 2004 as newly liveried First ScotRail 156465 stops at Westburn Park as SPT 320303 pauses working a Dumbarton Central to Motherwell via Bellshill Sunday only service.
  2. Electrics return to the topic! Westburn Park situated in the eastern suburbs of Cambuslang about 10 miles southeast of Glasgow Central.
  3. A little bit of work has happened shown here as Virgin CrossCountry 43093 “Lady in Red” leads a fully liveried HST set southbound to Plymouth as a pair of Class 320s arrive at Platform 1 with a service to Dalmuir via Glasgow Central Low Level. The new setup gives plenty of scope for running every unit/set that passed through Cambuslang from around 1997 to 2011, and also adding the Class 800 and 390 in Avanti West Coast.
  4. Not a lot has been going on since the last update, to be expected at the moment... though the next thing I aim to do is to finish the EMU fleet this year and buy an 87/DVT for the Virgin Mk3 rake, but with so many tempting releases this year like the Avanti 390 and LNER 800, it might just slip by.
  5. The whole idea is to build the scenery up as I go along. With the likely situation being situated in a fairly industrial and town scene somewhere in Central Scotland.
  6. Big changes have happened to go back to modelling the West Coast Mainline within Strathclyde, also been busy ballasting the scenic section and using the 320s to test, 320303 with the older livery is due to be renumbered as 320318 in the nearish future.
  7. This shot of the 320 shows the installation of the backscene framework, ballasting is due to begin next with the next task of removing all wires to provide clearance to add ballast.
  8. Purchased a second Class 320 in SPT a few weeks ago for £166 on eBay essentially completing the Class 320 lineup on the layout. Today’s the day that the foundations for the backscene will start going in, more to follow later...
  9. I do have a few Class 101s and two 158s, the scenery work should hopefully begin soon, I’ve recently just added a third 320 to the fleet. It’ll come in an update rather soon once a few bits have changed. Would be nice to have a 303.
  10. Recent progress include catenary being fitted to the station scene and new platforms being built. Not long now till the scenic and foliage work start.
  11. My last layout plans were subsequently scrapped due to insufficient storage space. So here’s a new idea that’s been in the pipeline for the last few weeks. Trying to recreate the Cumbernauld Line (with modellers licence) if it was electrified in the 1990s through to the early 21st century. So what better way than to model an accurate representation of Greenfaulds Station (called Condorrat for legal reasons) stock is made up of Realtrack, Hornby and Bachmann DMUs and Bratchell Models EMU kits. All modern image and either in various ScotRail liveries or SPT’s Orange & Black or Crimson &
  12. Any progress on the layout since last time?
  13. Whilst the coronavirus took its toll, I decided to rebrand the EMUs on Northbank. A bit tatty yes, but last thing to do is add the NX logos to the Orange units. Otherwise, it looks much better than before.
