    Badger's Bottom

    Sorry that progress is slow with this layout, it is a long term project and progresses when I get the urge. The big problem is I find myself going in the shed and shunting a few trains and wagons for an hour or two!
  2. Hi Howard, what an excellent issue, nicely balanced mix of layouts and articles. I must say a big Thank You to Tony Wright for his superb photos of my layout Sandy Bay. Looking forward to the next issue, Kevin Smith.

    The water tower has now been primed and given the base coats of light and dark stone. I am making a fire devil out of a piece of 15mm copper tube, a plastic rod and some tooth picks. Pictures to follow. The chains have been blackened with a chemical agent.

    Thanks for the kind comments Richard.Your idea for a NE U S A layout sounds interesting, I will look out for that. Sandy Bay is in the July 2020 BRM with photos by Tony Wright.

    Badger's Bottom

    Yesterday I made a few of the details to affix to the water tower. It now has the rising main (aluminium wire), ladder, brass, and the operating rods and chains attached. The banding around the tank is plasticard strip, and the water bag is a length of sheathing from CAT5 computer cable. It still needs rivets adding, the stay to hold the chain from the spout and a drain making up.

    Hi Ray, above should be a link to the garden railway. Best Wishes, Kevin.

    Hi Ray, the garden railway loop is on RM web in 7mm scale, as The Garden Railway. I don't know how to link it from this post! It is a very slow build as I get distracted by other layouts, but it does work and gives me a 3/4 scale mile continuous run to allow the engines to stretch their legs a bit.

    I have started work on a water tower, made in the best Allan Downes style, from an aerosol lid, some wooden dowel, brass rod, and a few washers.

    The layout finally has a name - Badger's Bottom. It was suggested by Maggie after we had a badger in the garden!

    The platforms have now had a couple of coats of thinned emulsion paints applied. This soaks into the card and allows the texture to be seen.
