Ooh, more please!!! What an interesting subject for a layout!!

 

I like the big 'safety' notice. I once went to a factory that made "Zip-up" Scaffolding Towers, and a big sign in that place said "Remember - Someone's life depends on your welding!". Food for thought....

Absoutely love this something very different in US modelling terms - to whom does it belong, and is it likely to vist Glasgow or Perth?

Dues anyone have a reference number for the loco lift in the last photo please?

The jacks might be Bachmann scenecraft? They certainly catalogued something similar.

 

The trackplan is quite unusual, two mini-layouts with a fiddle yard between them, as Jon says it was working very well at Barrow. :)

The Scenecraft range is worth keeping one eye on as a US modeller, most of the structures are very British looking as you'd expect, but some of the industrial bits are likely usable, and some details. My favourite at the moment is they have some nice aircon units for building roofs/walls.

Desperately trying not to make remarks about Actresses and Bishops! Thanks for taking the trouble to find the trackplan - a cracking layout - I hope to see this "in the flesh" one day - much studying of photos will take place, and lots of ideas will be generated.

Thanks for the trackplan - interesting to have the fiddleyard in the middle. Do you have un-powered locos to shove in as the 'dead' ones, or just lash things up with the DCC?

Yes - Now I know who you are - I didn't put together "Barrow" and "Helm" It is certainly a brilliant piece of work and will be well worth any managers invite. The apparent depth of the building with #4 and the boxcar is superb
