Underhill Road

Recommended Posts

Welcome to my layout Underhill Road, I’ve been a railway modeller for too many years now and have exhibited layouts with clubs and by myself.

 

Ive gone back to my roots of P4 modelling in a period I have modelled before in OO gauge Scottish region 1970’s under name of Ting tong yard.

 

This layout started out after two individual baseboards were bought with P4 track already laid, the first layout portrayed a southern region engineers yard called Balfour Road, this was featured in a early Railexpress issue.

 

Underhill Roads baseboard has sat for a fair few years untouched while club layouts like Farkham has taken my time up along with Ting Tong yard.

 

After a time a way from modelling to indulge in my other hobby of fast fords, I finally found the love to return to railway modelling.

 

The layout baseboard was found to be to wide for its new home in the spare room so it was narrowed and three points were removed and a new siding laid in place, slowly over 2017 I’ve started to build the layout at same time building new stock.

 

As a member of Define I had set myself a date to finish the layout for our open day in Jan 2018.

 

I have chosen two periods to time to model between 1967-1972 and 1974-1977 in the Scottish region. The layout isn’t modelled on a Scottish location but I’ve used the suburban secondary line as it’s base.

Looks good. The factory/goods depot is a good way of framing the layout. Any chance of a track plan (or photo showing what it is like) and dimensions? I'm interested in building a small urban yard as a change from the rural idylls I usually model and would appreciate inspiration.

What a cracking layout you have produced, just that one photograph is full of atmosphere and begs for more information /  photographs. Many thanks for sharing this rather fine creation  :sungum: I will follow this thread with interest ..

Great looking layout. Look forward to seeing more pics

 

Ting Tong yard was one of my favourite small layouts and provided the inspiration for my Springburn Yard layout.

Superb.

 

Any shows booked around the Derby area? I did enjoy seeing Ting Tong a few times, once at the Mickleover Club Open Day.
