Thought I would get some of the buildings out to see how they would look.

More work on the boards that have never been up before.  This end is where variance to the real area is the most as the running lines move off to the right to were the cement works are would normally go off to the left.

 

You can also see the entrance the cement works and the small headshunt where they shunter or spare loco would sit.

 

The next area once wiring is compete is the laying of the fiddle yard and the cement works which I may do out of Peco bullhead rail

 

Also you can see the layout on its new legs which will help when exhibiting as they are easy to put up and fold away and have adjustable tops for balancing uneven floors at venues

Exhibition layout

Type :  end-to end

Era/region/location - late 80's to ealry 2000's

 

Trackwork - handbuilt on scenic, peco in fiddleyard - handbuilt by Norman Saunders

 

Buildings - all scratch built by GravyTrain

 

Base boards - Whiterose modelworks

 

Rolling Stock - locos modified rtr, wagons are rtr, kitbuilt and scrtchbuilt hopeully in typical rakes as ran in real life (I hope) many detailed and sprayed by Jon at Peakdale works (he also is a regular to Peak Forest so will be used on  consultancy basis also - not sure he realises this as yet)

 

Late to this - something that would keep me going for decades - no - i'd give up :D  good luck on an area well familiar to most on here - not much margin for error.
