Visited the layout today although I think I missed you Steve. What a truly stunning little layout, and the gent operating was kind enough to answer all my questions and even show me around the back. Amazing layout mate and a real credit to you! 

 

All the best matt

Thanks Steve for showing me the back of the layout. I saw you just after lunch. This is one of these layouts that looks great from ever angle. No half finished buildings that the public can not see. I think you said the station building was two Bachmann items cut in half and stuck together again to make it look right!

Very inspirational! Now where did I put that spare 4’x2’ baseboard?

Hello all

we had a great weekend at Alexandra Palace. The layout ran well again yesterday and was well received again yesterday and some nice comments regarding the layout were passed and overheard. 

There were many many pictures of the layout taken over the weekend so if any of you want to share your pictures of the layout on here please post as I for one would like to see them. 

Finally got home at 9.30 after dropping Peter off at Milton Keynes so he could catch his train home to North Wales. We both really enjoyed the weekend and thanks to the Model Railway Club and BRM for a great show. 

Next show for me is the Ivanhoe show with Tanners Hill in 3 weeks time.  

Next outing for Lymebrook Yard is Sutton Coalfield at the end of April 

 

thanks Steve.

Just a reminder that Lymebrook Yard will be venturing down South next weekend for its last show of the year at Fareham. I’ve never exhibited any of my layouts in the area so I am really looking forward to the show. 

Hope to see some of you. 

Thanks Steve.

First show of the year for the layout is at Pontefract 25th/ 26th January 

with other definite bookings for Leyland in August and Barrow in Furness in October. With other dates to be confirmed. 

From a running session today a class 24 is collecting a train of ZAO/ZAV medfits that have been loaded with spoil from engineering work that has taken place. 

Many thanks 

Steve

Steve, thankyou and your co-operator (who's name I didn't catch) for the conversation that we had regarding the layout's trackplan and it's suitability as a West Highland Line project today in Ponte Carlo, you've certainly given me food for thought.

 

The layout was definately as good as the pictures that I've seen, great to see it in the flesh so as to speak.

 

Kind regards,

Ian.

A shot of the vehicles in the yard 

the Coles crane is a PD marsh kit and a Base Toys Leyland LAD which has been repainted. Along with the Commer walkthrough vans. All were the subject of a few comments over the weekend at Pontefract. 

The layout ran well with only operator error causing problems. 

 

Thanks Steve.
