Ullapool Branch and my Great-britN modules

Recommended Posts

Ullapool, the terminus, as well as Inverlael, the junction, did get sold. So virtually all parts of the Garve and Ullapool railway survive, just separated from now on.

Hello,

 

as Felix mentioned Ullapool and Inverlael are sold. Inverlael will got to Austria, and Ullapool will remain in the Frankfurt area.

During the session we have spoken about the new layout and we came to the conclusion, that I could go on the the Ullapool theme.

But for the new layout I have to relocate the area of the station more westerly to the Broomfield Holiday Park area.

And during the evening of the session weekend we enjoyed some wee drams. And I've tried a sip of Laphroig quarter cask single malt. But I have to confess,

that it is not my taste.

Laphroig is a bit too peaty for my liking, I was given some last week at a Burns night dinner, My preference is for Highland Park, smokey and smooth.

Will you build the station behind West Shore Street or will  Shore street become station road?

I think I will lengthen West Argyl Street a bit to the west, and the lengthend part would be the station road.

Hello,

 

I will try to solve the problem. It is a bit frustrating that in some forums there are no problems with inserting pictures from sites like Flickr, and on others there is.

About two weeks ago I attended an operating session on my friend Matthias Great-britN modular layout with his Penzance and Parbourne stations.
It took some time to edit the video, but here is the result

Hello,

during the last weeks I added some additional storage space above my fiddle yard, and installed lights above the fiddle and Lochdubh.

I also started with the construction of the station building which is based on Mallaig Station, and the platform. I built these from styrene strips of different sizes.

Hello,
 
dunring the last few days I wired the track of my Lochdubh terminus. Now I can concentrate my efforts for the turnout motors. I plan to use servos, in combinations with the MERG Servo 4 board. Today I could run the first locos and trains since January 2017 on my layout.

Since my last post things in my personal live have changed. My wife and I decided to seperate. We are seperating in a good way, so no struggling and fighting. But these means that I have to move in a new home. But if everything is going according to the plan these will be the last move. These is because I will move in to my parents house, where I will move in to a room under the roof, and I get a room in the basement. These room measures 4x4 meters (about the size of my previous layout room). These time I could use all my modules and segments I have at the moment, and I don't have to sell or tear down parts of the layout.
I will also held an last operating session before the move by the end of these month. During these time I try to scenic the harbour area. After the end of June, I think I won't make great progress unless the benchwork construction in the new layoutroom until autum.
During the last few weeks I started with the scenic work on the harbour area. I painted the water surface with Marabu acrylic blue colour, and drybrushed it with a olive green colour from the same company. I dressed the pier walls with Slaters embossed plastic card, and painted it with Revell email paint. The pier surface was made with Moltofill Modelling past, which cures softer than spackling compound. When dry I embossed the cobble stones with a rolling stamp from RailNscale. After these I painted the surface with acrylic grey, and drybrushed it with light grey, brown, sand colour and white. The first layer of water is created with Marabu window colour cristal clear, which will be followed by a second layer in the next few days. I also addes some puddles on the pier surface with the window color.
