We now have two hebridean island layouts on this board, which is interesting, because modelling a railway in a location that never had a railway lends itself to creating the sort of scenery that one might create for the ideal train journey.  I have been on long, real train journeys accross Europe, hoping for such scenery, only to be disappointed, so this looks like a really good ploy.
With kind regards
Laurence

What a great starting point, look forward to seeing how you redevelop the layout - maybe you qualify for a grant from the Highlands & Islands Development Agency :)

The main output of the biggest spreadsheet I use is to tell me when I can next afford to buy another loco .... 


ahhh....  right about now  :claphappy:

What a very interesting, if poignant story. Dogs and cats nearly always thrive after being rehomed (we have 3...), why shouldn't it be the same for layouts? I will follow this thread with interest.

Cheers,

Chris

We rescued Ben the Border Collie a couple of months ago, maybe that should be Bheinn, as we are talking about Gaelic lands here, The Gàidhlig for Mountain is Bheinn

If you observe on of the pictures of my modified layout , you'll see a white mat on the floor, and a little bit of black showing.
 That is the Club Superviser.
 Here he is...

A few pictures of the latest state of the layout, as you can see I've been having a flocking good time..

The above is a photo of the control panel, which Harry and I modified from the  two control panels the layout previously had. This panel was never completed, and now never will, as I am intending to rebuild the fiddle yard.  Also as I'm intending to make this a show layout the new panel will be much smaller.

The right hand half of the panel is that part of the layout I'm working on at present.

The branch line  is at the bottom of the panel which is at the back upper level of the layout, next above that is the small fairly useless fiddle yard that is hidden under a hill side.
Above that is the awkward over large station yard.
As you look at it, the dead end 4 lines on the left upper section are the passenger side of the station...

You can tell by my statements the things that I intend to alter while retaining the general plan.

Hopefully this will give you a rough guide to the layout for now.

I'm going to have to speak to SWMBO nicely to borrow her camera to get some decent pictures of the layouts current situation.
