Another layout that will be conceived, built, admired, tweaked, admired again and finally sold all in the time it takes me to lay a yard of track :)

 

Love the concept Andy, will definitely follow and after watching Kings Moreton, I know it will be good!

Thanks Martyn, very kind of you, but it won't be that quick with other things to do, haha.

Looks good Andy, I am about 3 working days away from finishing my new layout so that means finished about July time?

Just like you i have 3 plans in my head N/OO/O gauges but the N i think would be build and all sold so not sure what to do? Two plans really are bugging me so i might have to make room which means selling my old Wellington Road layout.

Hi Hugh, I did my ''N'' Gauge Glenfinick after doing my ''O'' Gauge St Budoc and really struggled with size and scales, so I think I'll just stick with ''O'' and ''OO'' for now at least.

In the same 6ft length as Mason Street, here is Glenfinick, it's still in use by a couple of mates from our Club.

Why not use a 6" space in front of the fiddle yard for a warehouse loading platform ?..or something similar to hide the fiddle yard, just a thought...

Do you mean instead of the Road Bridge George?

Nice idea Andy, I like the look of the layout you saw as well. I've got a board 6ft x 10inches and I'm wondering what I could put on there in 4mm, got me thinking.

steve.

West Shed was only 6ft x 1ft.

Do you mean this?

If so, that is a loading Dock in beige and Blue, alongside the other track.

 

The two Tracks are for Wagons, Parcels, Loco Stabling etc.

SORRY Mate, l was half asleep and have only just realised that you are going for  swivelling fiddle yard which is a very different way for you to go this time, must say it does seem a better way to go....

I'm sorry Andy I'm finding it difficult to keep up with you. In the length of time it is taking me to build a Parkside O gauge GWR Brake Van you have appeared to have built a new OO gauge layout. I don't know how you do it.

Thanks Alan, No it's NOT built yet mate, just the two Baseboards so far, although I do have the Points and Track ready to make a start over the coming weeks, so don't panic, you WILL build the Parkside kit before I build Mason Street, haha.

I see where you were thinking of now, yes it will be a swivelling Sector Fiddle Yard the same as Bala Town and Seven Mills Sidings, it always works well for me.

Hello Andy,

 

I am impressed with how you can switch from 7mm to 4mm modelling so readily. I find if I switch from one scale to another I have to refocus my mind which takes ages - probably because I am a bit slow!

 

I will be sorry to see Bala Town move on. Around that bridge at the end so captures the feel of many country lines in Wales, Hereford, Worcs, Gloucs and Oxfordshire. I half expect a Grange (or rather a Manor in Wales)  to come blasting out. Lovely.

 

Ian.

Thanks Ian, I hope it finds a good home once I advertise it. Cheers for the nice comments, and more pics coming up on BT very soon.
