That is very impressive work indeed!

Tell me, would you be open to a commission in the future?

Well I quite fancy a JCB like yours. I have some roadworks on my layout which would go quicker with mechanical help  ;)

Absolutely no rush, next injection of cash for railway budget is due late March  :thumbsup:

Sounds good to me, I'll begin research and see what I can do for you:) I'll do some mock ups and send some photos to you, see what you think:)

Thanks,

Alex

Very good of you Alex.

But do make sure that is third behind Uni work and your layout  :thumbsup:

Hello all,

I have been working on Skyline2uk's commission of a JCB Backhoe over the past few days and, apart from the bucket it is ready to post!





I am quite open to any other orders/requests, just let me know:)

Once I receive the track, the layout will hopefully begin to progress further!

Thanks,

Alex

Thanks guys, I really enjoyed building it! Any ideas of what I could build next? I am thinking a Network Rail machine for the works area or burnt out coach or something to sit in a corner of the layout!

Thanks,

Alex

Network Rail Machines are always popular.

I have just Googled "small network rail machines" and got images of many possibilities.

Thanks, I think I will choose between either a bulldozer for the platform rubble or a machine which I can mount on some wheels so it can be pushed along the sidings:

Great modelling Alex (hopefully I can say that on the forum)  :worried:

I will be needing some large excavation equipment for my quarry at some time in the future...

Haha thanks!

If you have anything in particular in mind already just let me know and I can do a little research:)

Thanks,

Alex

Hello all,

I have been looking at how to model the single siding on the left hand side of the board, the strip in front  of the fiddle yard.

I have been thinking I would quite like it to be a scrap yard for the disposal of locomotives, as I saw in some photos of Eastleigh Works. It would have a grassy bank behind it and a concrete covered track with debris and maybe a burnt out coach being scrapped with a crane/digger at work. A yard building would also be present with all of this giving the illusion that the yard was bigger than that on show.

I feel the siding needs to have (or at least to have once had) a purpose and thats why I am thinking scrap yard/network rail yard type of thing!

Any suggestions of either how  to improve my current ideas or a new suggestion entirely would be welcomed!

Thanks,

Alex

I like that idea, but my instinct is always constructive rather than de-structive (I know rolling stock often has to die, but it's always sad!).

How about a small wagon works / engineering firm? I wonder if modelling part-built / restored stock is a bigger challenge than broken-up stock?

There is also scope for making some jacks / lifting equipment?

Just a thought, your model after all.
