Grundy Street

Recommended Posts

Well l have started another thread called Pit Street North, total change from my southern haunts as this time its based around the Barnsley area  in the past thirty years, so a whole spectrum of different stock and a myriad liveries, and loads of empty warehouses and deserted factories,and over grown yards, so l have enlisted the help of fellow rmwebber Mark Owen (meowenuk) who has returned to modelling after a long break, and was keen to lend a hand, we have started laying the track in the station area, then my saw packed in so we will have to wait until Wednesday for the new saw to arrive...

Are those copper clad sleepers George, to which the track is soldered?  If so, I am looking at that principle for my fiddle yard, and have acquired some copper clad sleepers, so will be interested in seeing how this goes together.

Hi Rich,  Welcome on board, the track will be soldered to the sleepers as required you will have no chair's (but l can live with that). also if you cut through the copper clad to isolate the sleeper as near to the inside rail you won't see the cut...

Morning mate, the Set Track Points have far to sharp an angle, I've always used their standard ones which suit my way of modelling, and fit nicely on SMS/ DEY

Very dirty Martin, very dirty indeed....

We have to work hard to present it the way it was.

I have stayed off my own patch this morning down to Mexborough. Following the satnav from the A1, the rural landscape could now do a tv double for the Cotswolds. Best keep quiet before Escape to the Country doubles house prices ......

l have made two cassettes up today, and decided to use the recess in the cupboard to fit them in, and that will give me extra room on the layout, nothing is fitted yet, still working things out....
