Dudley Road & Peters Street

Recommended Posts

Due to Technical difficulties this topic will be off line while I try to copy each post from the old forum to the new one.

 

I'm very sorry about this but why change things?

Amazing amount of detail really brings the layout to life. I like small layouts because it is possible to more or less finish them without getting fed up. I find your layout inspirational and gives me a few ideas for a new layout.

Thanks for the super photos.

Peter,

 

Thanks for reloading your layouts and somewhere I can find them too!.

 

I enjoyed a 20 minute cruise through your top class work. (again)

 

At that kinda speed - next time you are in Glasgow please visit me and you can knock me up a wee layout while I make a coffee.

Months of work - squished into 20 minutes - the reverse of what I achieve.

 

What are you going to do next - mass produce deck chairs?

Hi Pete

Nice to see both of your great layouts have made the move too. You've got some great photos here- I am convinced that natural light is the way to go when taking model photos. I am also impressed by the people- they look real enough that I could take their blood or put an IV cannula into them! Regarding the Blake Street waiting shelter is your offer of a copy of your drawing still open? This is certainly a common type within the West Midlands area- certainly Canley, Tile Hill, Aston, Tame Bridge Parkway, Bescot Stadium, Redditch at least.

Thanks! I knew I would get the station name wrong! I have visited and photographed it though-out in the wilds of Staffordshire... Incidentally I photted the building at Northfields quite extensively- this too would make a nice contemporary station building- being quite spacious for a suburban station. Other stations on the CrossCity line have similar buildings. Now if I can suss out GIMP (or similar drawing program) then I would be able to produce a drawing of it.

Here is 2008's project Peters Street

 

Its the same size as DR it is the other way round and its a station.

 

part2open.jpg

Two of the design stage screen shots from the CAD system.

 

DSCF3150.jpg

So I started with some PLY and Pine.

 

DSCF3328.jpg

And this is what I ended up with.

 

DSCF3329.jpg

As you can see I have changed it in a few places from the cad model just to make it a bit better.

 

DSCF3330.jpg

 

DSCF3331.jpg

 

DSCF3332.jpg

No coach bolts to worry about just these quick release clips a lot easier.

 

To build this layout I have had to scratch build several things, the modern type buffer stops being one, I have posted several pictures of these in my work bench section.

 

Some buildings have had to be built as well including a platform partially inspired by JSW's New Street platforms.

 

DSCF3340.jpg

 

DSCF3358.jpg

 

DSCF3359.jpg

 

DSCF3361.jpg

I made a simple gauge to allow me to position the platform sides the correct distance away from the track to give the correct gap from the platform edge to the carriage / unit.

 

DSCF3374.jpg

 

DSCF3377.jpg

The platform was made from 2.5mm thick plasticard after a base frame had been positioned and glued to the platform sides.

 

DSCF3528.jpg

 

DSCF3534.jpg

 

For this layout I wanted some controlling signals I wanted 2, two aspect colour light starter signals for the two main platforms and and one colour light ground signal.

I searched for the two starter signals but I could not find any thing that was quite right so I decided to build the Tony Sissons way and scratch build them from brass which after I had worked out the sizes got the Led's and made the brass bits I started to build the signals.

 

DSCF3511.jpg

 

DSCF3513.jpg

 

DSCF3524.jpg

 

DSCF3536.jpg

After building and wiring and testing the signals, to paint them I just used normal primer paint and painted the target board and base with black paint.

 

DSCF3569.jpg

Well that's enough for tonight more to follow.

Some really good touches. The weathering around the TMD in particular looks the part. Your photo on the backscene also shows good perspective; I thought it was a mirror at first glance. Food for thought for me.

I have been scratch building the first bench of the two I need to build for Peter's Street I have built it out of plasticard this is the mk2 the mk1 was built from brass rod and phosphor bronze strip soldered together but I could not get it to look right, so I built the mk2 from plastic and it worked out a lot better.

Adding lighting to the station buildings, there are a few more things I need to do before I fix them down but here are a couple of pictures of my progress.
