Frankland: N gauge Southern Railway

Thanks...

 

The 1910 B type is one of the vehicles I am interested in...so will watch any developments in that department with interest.

 

The SL set will produce some challenges, not least the bow-type pantographs - although I may have found some suitable from a Japanese supplier that could be modified - and the painting (Marsh umber and cream by that time). Japan would also be origin of the motor...Tomix provide an adjustable motor chassis, one of which is a base length scale 19 metres.

I really do enjoy your update's Southernboy,

 

Absolutely Fantastic, Your attention to detail is brilliant and those buildings look superb, I especially like the masking tap for the roofs, simple yet very effective. 

 

This has to be one of my favourite layout's on RMweb. Well done indeed sir.

I lived in a parade of shops next to a parade of shops just like that a few years ago.  What an amazing model!  Its completely London and just like the old pictures, well done sir!

Hello Mark

 

Thanks for a splendid New Year's update! 

 

You're making great progress, and the layout is coming together very nicely indeed.  I love the way you tie all the different elements together to create a coherent and fully rounded vision.  And the way you present your updates makes it really feel like we are being invited to step into a completely believable world!

 

What's the next area you're planning to develop?

 

cheers

It took me an hour to close my jaws, as they snapped open when seeing these pictures!

Absolutely smashing!

Discovering a new update is like stumbling upon a new novel by a favourite author.

 

I have run out of words to suitably express either your staggering modelling skills, or my enjoyment of reading about your progress.

 

N gauge sausages - who would ever have expected to see those modelled...

Just an update really - isn't it amazing that this new update features the railway only in the first four or so photos? The rest of the modelling just kept getting better and better!!!!!

Once again we find ourselves in Frankland, looking at 2mm modelling that would simply shame many of us working in 4mm or 7mm scales. You have the imagination, skills and ingenuity in equal measure. Quite remarkable.

Utterly magnificent. The row of shops is amongst the very best I've ever seen. Detailing, imagination and beautifully conceived with a sympathetic eye for colour.
