  1. Hi everyone, Please note that as of 11th May, I have made a minor change to the name of the layout/thread; as the scenery has taken a more industrial look I thought a change from 'sidings' to 'works' would make more sense of what I am trying to build. Introduction: Bere Lane Sidings is an LMS (ex-MR) freight only line set in the period between 1939 and 1947. It serves a company owned goods shed, and a number of local businesses including a small engineering works. It uses a previously published Hugh Flynn plan designed for an urban location. The layout is in 00, is slightly smaller than 6'x1', uses code 100 track, and is wired for DCC. Overall size was dictated by the availability of an existing board. Background: Between April 2013 and February 2014 I played around with a series of track plans for a small 00 layout with a freight only theme. Throughout it all a lack of focus meant that it changed in size, focus, era, and geography. The full history is here: Having started and abandoned a few schemes in the intervening years, I have now regained some focus, I have decided to go go back an revisit one of the versions of Bere Lane, developing it to reflect some of the things that have interested me for a long number of years. Although I have been looking at the potential of an LNER scheme set in the north-east of England this current plan returns me to the LMS, and the 1940s. (I will return to the LNER scheme once I am happy with space, setting, track-plan, choice of prototype buildings, etc.). The Plan: As stated earlier, I am indebted to Hugh Flynn for the track layout. My version will be a little longer, in part due to not using the space-saving measure of a three-way point. A drawing will hopefully appear here soon. Rolling Stock: Given its LMS (ex-MR) roots it should come as no surprise that the locomotive fleet is made up of 1F and 3F tanks, with an ex-LNWR Coal Tank thrown in for variety. Rolling stock is a small collection of rtr items in appropriate railway company and private-owner schemes. I hope to expand this in the course of the coming year, and to include some kit-built wagons to increase visual variety. Finally: I know it's said by some that going back to old ideas is not always a good idea, however this is a plan and aesthetic that I liked as soon as I saw it. I have tried it in passing in 00 and even in N-gauge (with modern image stock and large radius points). I am hoping to get the points rewired, and the track laid, over the coming week (work permitting). Thanks for taking the time to read, and please feel free to comment or ask questions. Regards, Alex.
