  1. So, i was looking through the PECO set-track N gauge planbook and saw this:
  2. I thought people may be interested in seeing my photos from the 2019 gala at the North Yorkshire moors. These pictures were taken on 28/09/19. J27 No.65894 & T2 (Q6) No.2238 double head a train away from Grosmont. Witherslack Hall passes over Grosmont Viaduct with a train for Pickering. K1 No.62005 & A4 pacific No.60009 “Union of South Africa” pass through Darnholme. 2253, King Edward II and 92134 at Goathland. If you'd like to see more of my images from the day then please click here.
  3. Hi all, After a couple of years of work, I've started this blog mainly for help, advice, to learn and develop in my modelling. Like many, I have always been encapsulated with the charm of Goathland. Is it the way time has seemingly stood still here for years? The quiet serenity broken by the occasional sound of a steam train or the small and big screen fame? Whatever it is, it has led to my building, at present, 3 different incarnations of the layout. The first two attempts were scrapped due to house moves and other constraints. Subsequent layouts based around North Yorkshire and the Esk Valley were started, but never progressed past track laying. A visit to the UK and Goathland in 2016 however, cemented the interest and need to revisit - and complete - a Goathland layout. With many other Goathland based inspirational layouts on here and across the web however, I wanted to try something a little different. I could never achieve something comparable with the current Goathland layouts, so I decided to set about creating something a bit different. A layout which, while may not be anywhere close to others offerings in terms of realism, but a layout which would showcase the best of my modelling skills and knowledge - even if it would mean ripping bits out and starting other areas from scratch if I felt I could do better. As a change from the preservation scene and the help of a series of books, I would model Goathland as it would have appeared from 1958 until closure. Below are a series of photos from initial conception, to where I am now.
  4. until
    The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is hosting a behind the scenes gala on the 4th, 5th and 6th of May. you will be shown behind the scenes of the NYMR how it operates locomotives, how it runs services, maintenance it's rolling stock etc.
  5. I have been thinking about doing a N gauge version of a real location for months. And it wasn't until a visit to the NYMR last year that I decided to base the layout on a location on the NYMR. I thought to myself, should I base the new layout in the hills of the heather covers North York Moors or do a station? It wasn't until I went to Grosmont sheds that I decided on the idea that I should base the layout on Grosmont sheds. The new layout is going to be a 100% accurate model railway layout of the sheds with the NYMR's home fleet of Steam and Diesel locomotives represented in miniature. I've recently been on google and getting images of the sheds and copying and pasting them onto a Word document and have been on Google Earth and sketched out the track plan for the sheds. I'll let you know on updates of my work.
  6. Having just looked at my first post I think it might be worth adding a bit of a proper introduction to it after nearly ten years. When I built Goathland I had no idea at the time that it would morph into what it has and think despite my enthusiasm recon it might take another ten years to finish Grim-Up –North.(GUN for short). GUN is my attempt to amalgamate 4 Yorkshire based layouts into one super layout. Goathland has been extended by 5feet, had a repaint, new tress and signals installed since we moved. When we looked at this house I had a vision of the spider infested double garage becoming the ultimate modelers man cave. It has now been dubbed “The Warehouse” by Andy P. Rewired, insulated and dry-walled it is now home to Goathland, Queensbury and a loop that incorporates part of Bradford Exchange. I’m aware that I’m seen by some as a butterfly modeler but at the end of the day it’s all the same project. The idea is to be able to run trains from one place to another or if the mood takes’ just sit and watch the trains go round. Sometimes mojos can wane and although retired at an early age there are times when time simply doesn’t allow or energy fades. Modeling is my passion and I like a challenge, some models involve an enormous amount of work and when it all finally comes to fruition should form a very enjoyable layout. This first post needs some pictures on it so enough with the waffling on and here are some of the models and some of the layouts. Below I have retained my original post. So the shopping is now almost over. The only things of much use from the local model shop are basic materials such as scenic`s, plasticard and paint. A full scale plan has been drawn up and a new blade waits in the jigsaw. The scenery around Goathland lends itself to open plan base boards and having purchased two thick insulation sheets months ago there`s no turning back! As with Dunster (my last layout) all the structures have been completed over the winter months including a curved viaduct. I should mention at this point that half this layout will be fictitious and that it is scheduled to appear at the model railroad show in Medford Oregon during November. The design will include; Continuous running The fiddle yard from Dunster, with modifications Reversibility, 180 degrees to be viewed at home from the operating well or the front at exhibitions Plug and play base board connections Infra red remote control of points Gradients Code 100 track, with electrofrog pointwork. Working signals Full lighting Comments more than welcome. Regards Shaun
