Hi all, 

 

After changing accounts i decided to start a new layout thread. It is still Brighton Junction just a new thread!!!

 

After working out how to post better, regarding images, i will be more diligent with this thread and a lot less lazy. 

 

I laid the last bit of track work last night, ill give the room a tidy up and take some well deserved pictures. 

 

So stay tuned,

 

Jesse 

 

To keep everyone happy (COUGH LNER4479 COUGH)  here are some pictures i posted a while ago on the old thread. 

 

here we have the North portles with ECML on the right and the Nottingham lines on the left

Has the CCE been sneaking over to Oz as that track laying looks very Granthamish. I do feel slightly embarrased about the tidyness of your excellent layout room......and those cars , in that wetaher as I sit here whilst it pi##s down outside in sunny (not) 36E)

Pity it is LNER though............ :nono:  :triniti:  :sarcastichand:

Looking vforward to seeing developments.

Thanks Graham, cheers for help with the track work. 

 

I had to cut and bend a single slip, i just mimicked your work from the last ones and it turned out very very well. Very pleased with myself.

Graham has been a fantastic help, with everything and anything. 

 

I already had LNER stock, but seeing Grantham in BRM a few years ago really done it for me and inspired me to build the layout. Graham has been an excellent help to me, as well as the rest of the team. I liked the idea of using Peco trackwork, as its cheap, easy to build and looks quite good, even if it isn't prototypical, (some may disagree). After a second visit to the Uk and the chance to see, help and operate Grantham i decided to go ahead with it. Graham cut up the Junction slips and points in order to be used for the proper permanent way, The rest of the layout that needed cutting and shortening i tackled myself. 

 

Well we have only had about 5 days rain max in the last 3 months....going to be a hot summer!

As promised, PICTURES, PICTURES,PICTURES!  :locomotive:

 

After a quick tidy up last night, here is the progress so far. 

 

 

 

A view south, with a good look at the Junction. We have in order from left to right: Up siding (yet to be laid), Up goods loop, Up Branch loop, Up Main line, the Down main line, the down goods loop, the down Branch loop and a down siding (yet to be laid). Although through lines only, there is some lovely operating that can be achieved.

Looking south again, round the curves heading towards Grantham.

Looking out of the not yet built signal box, the signal man will have an excellent view of up and down trains.

My latest loco added to the fleet is this B2 courtesy of Tony Wright, this is the second locomotive I have brought from Tony, but it is all for a good cause.

I guessed that - my other thought was that it might be how fast the ute goes in miles per hour...

TRACK WORK IS OFFICALLY FINISHED!!!!

 

So after about 12 months, track laying is finially finished. 

 

Here we are looking north at the start of the goods loops. Graham (LNER 4479) had helped me with cutting the Peco pointwork, so when it was assembled it had the proper permanent way measurements. Graham did most of the Junction pointwork, however the single slip in view was cut and also bent so it is on a slight curve, which matches up perfectly due to the non-existent curves on my layout. Pleading modelers licence!

Looking down the straight. We have down line loops on the left, the down and up lines and then the up loops on the right.

Looking South from the bridge, gives a nice view of the complex Junction. The ECML will be situated in a cutting, with the land falling south.

A less glamorous view as point motor and wiring is underway.

Yo Jesse - Looking great!

 

Glad to see that you've added add the 'protection' sidings for the various connections to running lines, even if they are effectively just blanks. Very prototypical and British-looking in style.

 

Just one little comment, if I may? Are you going to add individual sleepers (with the chairs cut off) underneath your track joins before you ballast. Will improve the appearance still further.

 

Looking forward to seeing trains running :sungum:

G'day Graham, 

 

Thanks, i think it does make it look very British. 

 

I will be adding them in yes. Makes it look so much better!!!

I'm not as qualified as m'learned colleague to comment on tracklaying, but that's some exemplary sheeting on those wagons in the last picture. Someone has clearly been on a course.
