Having been enticed by my good friend and neighbour to start a winter hobby.   My friend being into 00 scale, suggested I build a model railway.   After going to a few exhibitions, checking the net and visiting local hobby stores, I realised I would need a theme which would keep me interested. So it became 'The Somme'.    Amiens to Pozieres.  

 

I built three boards 2ft x 4ft and with the help of my neighbour we worked out a track plan that would take both 00 and 009 scale.   To have movement on the layout at all times the 009 will run continuously through the battlefields at snails pace while the 00 remains a shunting layout.   All to be DCC sound, battle noises, lights and fog/smoke.

 

Not sure what to do with it when I'm finished.   I will want to start something new I think.

Is there a way to flip some of these photo's?

 

Hi Boomerang, I know its been a while, but if your still struggling. Your computer should have a function that allows you to flip a photo, for example if you use windows, then all you need to is click on a given photo, that should open photo viewer, right click and the option to rotate it will come up.

 

Hopes this helps 

ScR.
