Hi,

Love your layout and attention to detail. Did you scratch build items in the merchants yard?

Regards

Julian.

Thanks Julian. The bricks, stone blocks and sacks are resin castings from Skytrex.

 

Coal yard items are scratchbuilt.

I have made some cards to use as a shunting puzzle. A throw of a dice decides which siding the chosen wagon has to be shunted into. It can take some time to shunt the new wagons and remove the old ones especially with the short headshunts.

Your modelling is very much in the style of Gordon and Maggie Gravett who have inspired me so much when I saw Ditchling Green.

 

Lovely

I use coloured barrals in open wagons. Small ones in the wagons and large ones in a bag that I draw out at random. Before covid I got members of the public to draw them. So that will not happen for some time.

Hi Alan super modelling as is the norm here. 

Just as an aside where did you find your source of wagon photos from?  I'm just about to add the wagon details for a google search.

Thanks Mark. Wagon photos are pics of my own models laminated.

Yes I did wonder Alan as after I'd used your picture number to do a google search and found nothing suitable I looked closer and saw that the couplings had a lincs fitted. 

That made me think that they were photos of your own models.  I have tried to photo mine but I took them at different times and there is no uniformity between them, I think I need to note down my settings and use them each time.

I'll start with re-photographing the wagons I have to hand and start from that as at the moment my photos are a right mix of odds and sods, different angles, different sizes etc.

I still have my layout to complete its build but I am already planning my next layout, a micro in about 8ft which is typical of me grasshopping about and not finishing any thing off. 

 

Thanks for the FB.

I'll look forward to a video of you shunting on "Wilne Lane Yard", oh yes indeedy. 

 

Regards

Any further progress Alan? I know you said that updates would be a bit 'feast or famine', but I'm really enjoying your layout progress!

 

Disgusting of Market Harborough

Nothing much layout wise. I have built another Parkside van and halfway through an old Mercian 1F loco kit at the moment.

Although it's too big for this layout I had to have a play with my 4F earlier. Built a few years ago now from a Connoisseur Models kit.
