East Lancashire lines
« on: September 04, 2015, 08:55:44 pm »
This is my new layout using a lot of parts from my old un-completed layout "Radcliffe North Junction".
I am using the modified fiddle yard as a basis to work from with 1' x 3' modules fixed to the fiddle yard with dowels and clamps. This is the first pic of the completed fiddle yard.
Here is a pic with a couple of boards attached so you can see the plan.
I have made a couple of 3' modules out of the old baseboard and also a 4' board which I hope to build a small station. I also intend to make two 90 degree corner modules so when connected together I will be able to watch trains go by. Here is one 90 degree module I have made.

Today I have been finishing the dropped module which is for the viaduct, I have salvaged the back scene I painted. That is something else that need working out when joining the boards, continuation of the scenery.,I have figured the wiring connections and track etc. Here is a pic of the viaduct section part completed. , bit more planning is needed.

Very glad to see such excellent progress already, Chris. I think this layout will be much better thanks to your previous experiences and look forward to seeing it develop and trains running on it.

I did not do much last night, guilty of watching the football. I am working on the viaduct section, I need to get the floor section fitted so I can place the viaduct in position. I am presently trying to use part of the old river bed,It seems a shame to waste the work I did on it. Waiting for glue to dry and hopefully will be able to lay some track over the viaduct this weekend. The weather forecast for weekend is bad,if they have it correct so no excuses. Pics to follow later if all goes to plan.

I seem to spend a lot of time waiting for glue to dry.  Or if it's not glue it's paint !

Look at some pictures of a real life railway for inspiration (or other model railways).

Bit more progress tonight, waiting for more glue to dry now. It is a bit of a bodge but I have managed to fit in part of the old river bed. Quite pleased with it to be honest,it would have been a shame to bin it.
