Thanks for the kind comments

 

The Wagons are all Dapol and arranged into three fixed rakes

 

One consists of IKA mega frets, the other two are a mixture of FEA spine and KQA pocket wagons all are weathered see pic (all 3 types)

Welcome to RMWeb, and what a nice looking layout - anything that includes lots of boxes is a winner in my book! :)

 

I have to echo the comment made by Glorious NSE, I also enjoy anything container based especially one as well done as this. Please keep the photos coming.

Wow - looks great! Will be great to see more pictures!

 

How difficult was it to repaint the Heljan container crane - I've been too nervous to do much to mine after what it cost to buy! Any tips?

 

Also, where did the lorry trailer come from?

 

Thanks.

There is a story about the cranes...............Yes there were two, I have one and my friend the other He painted his first including the spreader (it never worked again) :( so beware

 

I airbrushed mine with Tamiya acrylic, it took 12 hours and lots of masking.............and yes i was nervous.

 

The trailer I scatch built from plasticard, based on pictures.

I could be wrong as I have been wrong many times before but did this layout appear in Saltney near Chester last year as part of a modern image exhibition?

 

I'm not that much into modern image (ok folks hold fire!) but I have to agree this looks fantastic and if it was the one at Saltney it worked like a dream as I remember.

Thanks for posting!

I think the one you saw might have been Nick Gurney's 'Holland Park'- Nick lives somewhere in the North West, IIRC. Both are excellent layouts, though.

Again many thanks for the comments, I hope to take more pics when I have time.....

 

The straddle carrier is the work of a very good friend Mick Lawrence, I had a trip to Southampton to photograph the cranes and took a pic of 03 Mick saw the picture and a few days latter turned up with the model you see on Warren Lane Its all plasticard and oddbits but I think its fantastic.

Welcome to RMWeb Alan.

 

Nice looking layout you have.

 

My brother is taking an interest in this thread as he used to be a shunter and had a stint on Morris 1 & 2 (The overhead cranes and their respective call signs!) at Lawley Street.

 

Here is a link to my mates fotopic which features a few photos that may be of reference:

Hi,

 

Welcome to RMweb!

 

What a great layout! Really captures the atmosphere of a container terminal well!

 

I like the mobile crane, very realistic! Is the main crane a Heljan version?

 

Keep up the good work, will follow with great interest!
