Tregonning - Layout in a (Largish) case
« on: January 24, 2018, 07:35:46 pm »
Have just returned from 2 days up in Bristol and pleased to find that Mrs PP has taken delivery of this beauty:

You may have seen in a seperate thread that Iím planning a layout in a case. This resulted in a bid for a case on Ebay which produced this airline transportation case (2nd hand).
Iíve positioned a random handful of track plus a tank and carriage here to give an idea of scale :

And another

First job is to clean it up and then add a base which can be removed also allowing room for wiring beneath.
At the same time, Iíll be thinking about a track plan and location which will fit in with my preferred North and West Cornwall.
My plan is to document progress as I go.

With kind regards

That looks to be a pretty decent size/condition, Martin, and I'll be keeping an interested eye on how you develop it.

As I have pretty much the same starting base (as mentioned on the same thread), will watch with a lot of interest to see how you develop yours, I have been playing with a few trackplans/ideas, but you are off to a faster start than me :)

Looks like an old flight case for a set of CDJís / turntables and a mixer (DJ equipment)! Great buy! These can take a hell of a knock without damaging anything inside (I once found someone standing on mine with my equipment still inside  :veryangry: )

Look forward to watching!

As Mrs. PP is the expert in mini layouts, is she going to be in charge of this project? ???
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Judging by the second picture, it could have been a bass guitar  :thumbsup:

Internal dimensions are very rougly 140cm x 58 cm x 18cm so a reasonable sixe I think.

Hi Martin.

Very nice. Like the others, looking forward to your progress.

PS Is it very heavy?
Well, itís not light. I can manhandle it on my own but itís easier with two of us.

As Mrs. PP is the expert in mini layouts, is she going to be in charge of this project? ???
Itíll be mainly me but Mrs PP will hopefully add her artistic touch for some of the scenic items.
