  1. Could we see the full track plan of the entire layout above please? Sam
  2. A great layout! I first heard about your project from watching videos on YouTube and it's great that you have put it up on here. Keep up the good work mate! Sam
  3. If you had a N Gauge layout in that same space, you could have a Great Western main line!
  4. A nice compact track plan. Good luck with the rest of your layout build! Sam
  5. This is a lovely layout plan - which will be saved and on the list of my future N Gauge layouts to be built on a door! Sam
  6. Regarding the name for your layout, C. J. Freezer (in his book 'The Model Railway Design Manual) - one of the best model railway books that I own. He says that one of the names that has long fasinated him was Emborough, or you could have Walford - if you like East Enders. Buchan (Change here for Tweedsmuir) is a nice Scottish name, or on a literary theme, Casterbridge, Barchester, or Borchester. Sam
  7. I've just finished an enjoyable hour or so this evening watching three trains run round my layout: Class 156 'Super Sprinter', Class 350 'Desiro' electric unit, and finally, a Virgin Class 57 diesel hauling 5 Virgin liveried Mk 3 coaches. Happy Easter and Stay Safe! Sam
  8. One day in the future I would like to do a layout based on a small standard gauge railway network that serves a fictional island located in one of the seas just off the British coast that is only accessed by a ferry - just like the Isle of Wight. The island's railway would use trains that had been retired from service on the British mainland, such as the Pacer units for example! I have several layout ideas and plans that I would like to build before planning the above idea however... Sam
  9. The covered load under tarpaulin looks something like a car?
  10. I'd love to build a N Gauge Minories one day - it is on the list for planned layouts I would like to build in the future! Sam
  11. Even though I don't buy Hornby locos and items anymore (I've been a N Gauge modeller for the past 10 years) I will be buying a copy as it has some rather good content - I am looking forward to reading about the N Gauge Blueball Summit layout. Hope you include a trackplan with the article this time! Sam
  12. I've been building layouts in N since I changed from OO in 2008 (12 years ago!) when I got my first proper paid job (My first model I bought was a Virgin Voyager for Christmas of that year). None have been properly completed - basically I've changed the designs and track plans too much over the years lol! But I have enjoyed modelling in the scale, and like the convienience of having a intresting track plan with large station, goods yard, loco shed, etc... in a small space. For example, my layout at home has all of those features built on a single internal house door measuring 6 ft 6 inches x 2 ft 6 inches. Sam
  13. I like what I see! I know you said it's not based on anywhere in perticular - but to me with your viaduct and small station, it shouts 'Settle and Carlisle line'! Sam
  14. I like how you've got an interesting track plan into such a small space - look forward to following your progress. Merry Christmas! Sam
  15. Is it Christmas Day at your station with no trains running?
