Hi,

 

Looks like a really good plan to operate with plenty of movements around that shed, which also looks rather fantastic too (I haven't seen that kit before),

 

Good luck with it,

 

Gary

Thanks Gary, Its basically modelled on 82G Templecombe, but without the bit behind the Shed, in other words as 82G used to be.

Andy, that set of parts looks like something out of IKEA. Good luck with it.

 

What?!  The shed is going to take a few weeks to make?

 

You slowing down?

 

 

Looking forward to this Andy!

 

Best wishes

Thanks Nige, Bogie and Derek, I've made a start on the Shed this morning pics in a mo.

Hi Andy

 

I would drop the diesel stuff. The S&D was never set up for diesel locos. They did visit Bath shed but only somewhere to stable them between trains. 

 

It also may look a bit crowded with a goods shed as well, but the coal yard would add shunting to the scene.

Cheers Clive, as I said, I've assumed the S & D lived on a bit and so Diesels will visit for Fuel, Stabling and maybe light Maintenance.

 

The Goods Shed will be Low Relief and I've changed / shortened the other Road in front of the Shed, (see first post) so that it's now leaving room for Vehicles / BR Lorries, and also has an end Loading Dock.

 

The Yard Crane may also be moved to this Road once the Track Laying commences..

This will be an interesting layout to operate agree about no diesels Townstreet are high quality kits I have built quite a few go together well and look good as well  the chap who started them was really nice chap  .

Morning, Yes my mate Lee recommended them, he's built several in O and OO and he came around the other night to show me a few tricks. he also puts his together with a Hot Glue Gun with just a tack, to start with and then adds more once square.

I've made a start on the painting, and also picked out a few Bricks in a darker Red and Blue.

Lee came around and we did a test weathering using Magnolia Emulsion Paint as recommended well thinned down like water.

Now I've decided to add a couple of course's of Blue Engineers Brick around the bottom and Lee suggested a few more odd bricks, so I'll do that later.

Hi Andy

 

Looks like another great project to get your teeth into over the coming months.

 

Sorry I did not get chance to have a natter last weekend at Stafford.

 

Is North Road being built on a existing board, and if so what has had to make way for the new project.

 

Or has the potting shed had a extension

Hi Terry, you all looked busy at the weekend, and its was a superb show as always.

 

North Road is on the side of the shed where Pencarne Junction Fiddle Yard was when it was a roundy roundy, Now that its just Pencarne, a BLT I have half a shed spare, so I thought well why not have a nice big ish Depot for all my larger Locos.

Between jobs on Pencarne and walking the Dogs this morning I've managed to add the Engineers Blue Brick to the bottom of all the Shed parts, I'll wait for it to dry and then I'll move on to painting the Window and Door Frames.

Graham

 

Crickey, speedy Gonzales isn't in it, you knocked half of Pencarne flat and put it up last week, then yesterday a shed yard full of locos. appears just like that! It's nice to know where North Road is if I ever decide to go there.

 

Hi Andy

Your doing some good work on shed looking forward to watching you progress to the finished article.

Keep up the good work

Hugh

Thanks Graham, Northroader and Hugh, It will be a slow build, but there's no hurry.

 He's off again, hahahaha tell me, what are you using to stick it all together with mate ?..

Hi Mate, As I said in post 11, Lee does his with a Hot Glue Gun, just tacking the corners until its right and square.
