Narrow Lane, a little bit of Glasgow in 00.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I open this new subject, to introduce my new small layout in 00 gauge. The action is in the 60s, 70s and 80s. It is mainly a shunitg layout, with two backstage.

 

I begin this presentation with a video, made this week. 

 

I will present in more detail on the construction of this network in my next posts. 

 


 

Have a great weekend.

Railscot also a good source of information on railways in Scotland

 

I'm from Paisley which is just outside Glasgow . I am just old enough to remember travelling to St Enoch's from Paisley Gilmour Street . I must have been 4 as it closed in 1966. The railways of Glasgow are fascinating and I love Glasgow itself. These days it's not so industrialised , the buildings have all been cleaned, so you can see some lovely red sandstone tenements and some fantastic buildings. Back in the 60s , 70s and even early 80s everything was covered in grime , so buildings were predominantly grey, which you can see in pic of St Enoch's

 

Nice to see Glasgow being modelled. Nice layout .

The hotel with the bus station in front is St. Enoch's.  Now sadly lost under a shopping centre.

 

Plenty of good information on http://urbanglasgow.co.uk/archive/saint-enoch-station__o_t__t_399.html and on www.hiddenglasgow.com

 

Thank's for the link. I know this website, is realy interesting.

Hi everybody,

 

I was away a little too long.  :yes:

 

Before resuming the presentation of the construction of the layout, I present a new video. It is the new class Bachmann 37041, patinated by Lee's Locos and equipped with a loksound decoder V4. The special speaker (create for Lee's Loco) is installed in the fuel tanks.

 


 

Have a nice week-end !

Hi again Alain,

 

I've only just caught up with you on this thread. A very nice layout you have there! Love the videos. 37041 runs beautifully and sounds very nice too.

 

By the way, you have absolutely no need to apologise for your English. I only wish my French was half as good as your English! 

 

Best wishes and keep up the good work,

Dave

Here is the second step of the construction, still in picture. Ballasting and painting track.

I miss vocabulary in English.  :umbrage:

Hi Alain 

 

A good start my friend. Can I ask what paint you use to colour your track? I like the colour, but I wonder whether a bit more variation in colour would improve the look further? Maybe some different browns or greys in there too?

 

Best wishes,
Dave

After the ballast, here is the wiring. I'm sorry to make little comment, but I do not have the technical words. :mail:

 

The switches motors are controlled by a Lenz LS 150 module (digital).

Hello everyone,

 

A new class 37 locomotive has just joined Narrow Lane, class 37025 "Inverness TMD" (we are in Scotland). The locomotive was weathered and sounded by Lee's Locos. It is the fifth machine that I skate by this skilled and friendly craftsman! The locomotive was produced in limited series by Bachmann. I found my one on ebay. 

 

It is quite close to class 37057 "Viking" but some differences exist: door intercirculation suppressed, arrows BR more larger on the flanks, black paint of the noses that goes down on the ventilation grilles, etc. Short, details that does not leave the collector as I am.  :D

 

I made a few pictures during a shunting session.
