I haven't posted on one of your threads on new RMweb so thought I would Change that.

 

Looks good Richard, I like the layout I have a growing fondness for deasils and more threads like this aren't going to help!

 

 

Keep up the good work,

I have now installed the first platform starter which is a 2 aspect over all there will be 4 platform starters 2 each end a signal at the exit to the yard with a feather and 2 3/4 aspect signals either side of the level crossing will put pics up of new signals after I install the second signal....

I think it's about time I updated this...

 

I have installed 2 2 aspect signals as starters

 

I have fitted underlay (foam) to the outer loop the 'fast' line and has dramatically improved running the level crossing may go as its not very level etc and as it goes straight into the TMD seems a bit of a waster at the moment so that will come out I will also be installing 2 point motors for the crossover and hopefully if I have 3 point motors will have one for the entrance to the yard but I might "improve" the layout of that junction as trains are running a bit odd over it needs to be sorted then underlay that 'slow' inner line may look into having terminus platform there or something as it seems to be gathering a number of locos parked up in it. I am also hoping the TMD can be re-sited on a separate board towards the left hand side of the layout or for siding space as I think the depot at the moment can be increased in size were it is sited so will look into a re-work of the track layout there as well.

 

More to come...

 

Many thanks Richard

Right...after trying and trying yesterday RM web wasn't having anything so that why there was no pictures yesterday

 

"]Pic 1Here we see 153359 on a stopper service pass 66610 on a depot shunt maneuver

 

Pic 2This is the shed now sat in its hopefully final position mounted on foam board

 

Pic 3the footbridge with the shed behind it now note the level crossing has gone to allow another cross over to be fitted

 

I will get some more pics up tonight hopefully also towards the end of this week i will be installing the first point motor which will go on the 'short' crossover will also hopefully obtain another express point so can remove the short crossover as everything seems to fall of it when they traverse it

Many thanks Richard B)

 

*EDIT* I have put URLs in as on this computer I can't upload the images and RM web doesn't like the photo extensions so I will upload the images on the other computer tonight
