I have been working on the backscene behind the viaduct and I have learnt how to cut and split the image from a panoramic photograph into usable and printable sizes. I should be able to use some of my own panoramic photos to produce an effective back drop.


Sounds interesting. I look forward to seeing the results.

A mock up of scenic background from Wordsworth showing Sir DANIEL Gooch on the new viaduct, this is going to be one of the best places on Geominster for railside photographs. I just need to tidy the viaduct and colour the edges.

Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Looks great!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Seconded!  An excellent picture and I look forward to seeing more in due course.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

I hadn't realised that any Castles were names after cricketers.  Or was he a time lord who served as the first chief mechanical engineer to IKB?
With kind regards

maybe that should be Sir Daniel Gooch then.

I have now painted the fascias to the layout, they contrast nicely with the cabinets underneath and I am pleased with the results. I do think presentation is important and although the layout is unlikely to appear outside this room it is in part of the house where visitors come. Now I can concentrate on planning and creating the scenic areas and run trains in the meantime. Of course a very long way to go but that is why this hobby is so enjoyable, always something to do next. Anyway here are the latest photos with a mostly tidy room.

Amazing what a couple of coats of Homebase grey matt emulsion can do.  :D

Very impressive work, George. My working area is a complete mess! I plan to do some tidying up, soon, though.

Hello George.

I'm new to the forum and have a Nelevator on order. I notice that yours is behind cupboards Do you have any access issues or do you not generally need access to the bottom of the Nelevator? I am putting mine behind bookshelves below the layout and wondered whether I need to make the shelving units removable for access to the bottom of the Nelevator.

Any help and information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Philip
