Hi Callum you have produced a stunning little layout. The Hornby Peckett looks great on the layout and I like how you have captured a snowball fight. I will look forward to the build video Callum.;)

Very nice work, the snow treatment is very effective without being over done, superb.

Looks really good, and I’m knocked out that you can just say eight hours and get that result in the time.

Many thanks indeed! I don't think I can slow down after taking part in the Great Model Railway Challenge! :P

Beautiful pictures. Very well put together and the deer under the winter sun is just fantastic.

I think that it’s a cracking little layout

Bravo that man!

What a great Christmas table decoration! I want one!

Well done!

Thanks ever so much for the kind words guys! Glad you like the snow effect, so pleased with how it all turned out. The little snow fight scene was a nice little cameo to set up.

Should have the video up by next week.:)

So as you might of seen yesterday, Hornby asked to use my video of the construction of the layout for thier Advent Calender! I hope it was of interest.

For those who are yet to see it, here's that said video...

As part of the run-up to the festive period, I show you how to build your very own Festive Micro Layout, inside a Wrapping Paper Storage Box!

At just 730mm x 210mm little layouts like this are perfect for those who is wishes to build a layout, but lack space for a more conventional set-up. Fitting into a Wrapping Paper Storage means it's perfect for storing is tight spaces, such as on a shelf or under a bed.

I’d like to say a massive thank you to Hornby for this wonderful opportunity, and providing materials to create this special little layout for you guys, and I'd l like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from me and of course all the Team at Hornby.

Merry Christmas!

Well, the Festive Period maybe long over and done with, but there's been more progress made to the newly named "Winters End" layout :)

I've finally got around to adding a BLOCKsignalling SS2A DC Shuttle with Speed Controller to the layout. It really does work a treat and was very simple to fit (it also marked my first attempt with the soldiering iron)! A full video of how it was insulted and it operates is on the way. 

 

In other news, the layout will also be making it's first Exhibition outing next weekend at the Compton Dundon - Model Railway Exhibition - Somerset, Saturday 2nd March 2019! So be sure to pop along and say hi :)

As promised here's the full video and installation guide! 

A tutorial on how to install the BLOCKsignalling - SS2A DC Shuttle System with Speed Controller to your Model Railway.
A Shuttle is a automated system, that automatically changes the direct of travel of your model trains, when they reach the end of the track, without the need to stop or change the direction on your controller. This system is perfect for Branchlines or end to end layouts. BLOCKsignalling make adding a Shuttle to your layout quick and simple, with there range of Simple Shuttles, with minimal wires and soldiering, perfect for a beginner.
In this video, we will be fitting a BLOCKsignalling - SS2A DC Shuttle System with Speed Controller, to my 00 Gauge Wrapping Paper Box Micro Layout, "Winters End". The unit features it's own built in Speed Controller, meaning no extra Track Controller or Wires are needed.
Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for posting this Callum. I had already seen Laurie Calvert using a similar unit and think this might work for a couple of display layouts I am working on, one finished and one on the way.

On hand was also as good selection of Trade Stands and Demo Stands.

A quick video taking a look at a few Articles in both the Spring 2019 Edition of the Hornby Collectors  Magazine and the May Edition of Railway Modeller.
In the latest issue of the Hornby Collector's Magazine, there's a write-up about my Hornby Christmas Micro Layout, "Winters End", which fits inside a Wrapping Paper Storage Box. This was my first writing article about the build, and I'm over the moon to see it in print!
While the latest issue of the Railway Modeller features a full write-up by fellow Great Model Railway Challenge team mate, Adi, showing how he created our massive 00 Gauge Cooling Tower on our Great Model Railway Challenge 'Grand Final' Layout, "Melton Down".

Hope you enjoy!
