Worsdell forever

The Depots, Rosedale East.

Recommended Posts

I will look forward to this layout.

I have had a sort of passing interest in the area since taking shelter at The Lion on a walk about 30 years ago.

After crashing out on one trip and ending up in York Hospital I finally rode the full east and west branches last year and visited the site of your proposed model.

I too will watch this with interest. (while avoiding the accusing "gaze" of the j24 I've so far managed to inexplicably not build). I cycled a large part of the Rosedale complex about twenty years ago and have used Ruddland Rigg a fair few times for work - I've some very atmospheric pics shot in snow on that lane, that make it clear how bleak a place the west edge of the North Yorks Moors is when the weather decides to close down.

Looking forward to seeing this develop. If anything I'd be tempted to go even higher with your trackbed level so the viewer is forced to look up the hillside and feels like they are clinging to the side of the valley.

......................................... so the viewer is forced to look up the hillside and feels like they are clinging to the side of the valley.

That's how I felt when I got blown off my mountain bike just below The Lion.

While I'm still faffing about planning mine, you've nearly built yours....

Stop faffing about then.

Permission to stop faffing about once this house is sold and a new place to live found and a new job too? Audience procrastination aside: admirable progress.

Don't know how you manage all those windows, the two on this little shed were a right faff.

are you taking a wind machine to shows with this layout - the viewers need to feel the breeze from the valley...

 

In reality - looks good and hope it doesn't take too long to come to fruition.

Shouldn't take too long, a third of the buildings are done! Ok, its the smallest but a third by numbers.

Smashing plan, you just need a dark shed or tunnel to hide that long boiler thing Paul.

Or a nice air-smoothed casing perhaps

Will it's debut be at the Land Of Goats show in July? I have a feeling that John will be pestering you to make a trip to Shipley in the not too distant future....

Don't think it'll be anywhere near ready for July. John's been pestering me for ages for a new layout.

Where is your sense of adventure? I seem to recall being pressurised into having The Mill ready to a tighter deadline than the competition it was destined for.....
