Hill Street and workbench

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

 

Thought it was about time I started a layout and workbench thread so here goes!!

 

I started Hill Street a few years ago ( posted some photos on the old RM Web ) didn't finish it and then it went into storage at my work premises, so decided to get it out and give it a clean. so here are some recent photos and some older ones :scratchhead:Rob.

Thank for your kind comments - the size is 4' x 2' and the plan is to have two fiddle yards either side until I have enough space to extend! It's set 1985 -90 in the midlands. Just placing a bit of stock on there at the mo, track needs a clean and the wiring needs some TLC. I have almost finished the building you can see in the pictures (Whole Food Market) The old one got squashed in storage!!

Wow! Fantastic looking layout, love to see some more photos and a plan. Cant believe it's only 4' x 2'. Great stuff.

Bottom photo in op's last entry is bang on. It is like actually being on the proverbial bus on the bridge!

Hi everyone,

 

Here are some more photos of stuff on my workbench that still need bits a pieces finishing off!!  There are a pair of Lima 20's that I got from Hattons pre owned for £29.00 each ,which I have painted, re wheeled and put a new motor and flywheel in. Also a Vitrains class 37 with a Lima split headcode front grafted on and a lima 125 power car that needs a visit to the works! Lastly a Hornby Bachmann class 25.

Fantastic layout!

Given the period I wonder if you've ever been tempted by the title 'Hill Street Blues'??

Ah blue diesels, 08's as station pilots Class 20's nose to nose, peaks, class 37and 47. My youth in the midlands all over again. Wonderful stuff!

Thanks for all your comments - I'm still trying to get used to posting stuff on here as you can probably tell?!!    Rob.
