Peak Forest Layout and Stock/Locos

Recommended Posts

Final update for a few for a few weeks due to other commitments.

 

1. Re wire the fiddle yard board as I had made a mess of it

2. All the track given the first coat of brown undercoat air brushed on which has already made a difference

Well I have had to change the plan slightly with the edition of the extra siding behind the station as per the early 90's

Good Afternoon

 

Latest two boards arrived with the sidings appearing.  You can tell the difference between the flat bottom mainlines and the bull head sidings.  I also did a side on photo to show the gradient.

 

Wiring and spraying next for these two

Update

 

Latest boards all wired up.

 

Then these little things arrived from John Peck specifically designed for Peak Forest.  Two versions of telephone masts which ran along the lines in the late 80's early 90's so quite iconic for the area

 

All 3d printed

We have some 3D printed ones on Chapel en le Frith (Central) courtesy of Innocentman . Be aware the prints can move a little.

Happy New Year to everyone

 

The project as been very slow with space and work being the issue.  I am pleased to say the layout now has a home where I can do work on it although there is not enough space to put the whole layout up it will enable work to be done on sections at a time.

 

Some reminders of the layout below and I will endeavour to put on regular updates

I thought I would layout some of the buildings to get a view of how it may come together

All coming together very nicely.

  ......and is that four KPA hoppers that just happened to find their way into the photos?  I presume they are autoballaster conversions: I have not dared to start cutting up the latter just yet but would love to know where you got the transfers made.

regards,

Andy

Hi Andy

 

You are right they are conversions I have both colours i.e round top and the blue flat top ones.  Luckily I have managed to get second had base wagons reasonably as the price is now so high for them

Hi Nick,

thanks, it is scribed Das.

 It was only way I could get anywhere near the likeness of the stonework, all the embossed stone products didn’t look right so 

I gave up and started again ha ha.
