Here are some new toys which arrived over the last few days,





Graham Farish green Duchess of Hamilton which will be renumbered, put a large logo on the tender and renamed by TMC to 46255 "City of Hereford" which ran over the S&C on the 12th July 1964 with the Stephenson Locomotive Society Pacific Pennine Railtour.  The model will also be DCC and sound equipped by Digitrains at a later date.





Yet another Farish Jubilee which will be renumbered and renamed to 45593 "Kolhapur", another 1967 S&C favourite.









Two Farish Black 5's.  One will be renumbered to LMS 5305 which I travelled behind between Sheffield and Leeds in 1983 and the other will be a heavily weathered mid 60's example that ran over the S&C, which one has yet to be decided.  Again both will be breathed on by TMC.







Farish green Class 47 numbered D1572 which will probably be kept as it is or lightly weathered.  This will be DCC'd and sound fitted by Digitrains at a later date.

Seriously thinking of doing away with the fiddle yard and putting a double sided scenic section there instead.  Ais Gill one side and just a double track generic S&C scenic section behind, so it will be just a "roundy round" layout. 

Thought's please.

Fiddle yards can be a faff to set up and operate but I like being able to run a train round and then another appear, or to just sit there with a glass of my favourite tipple and watch the same one go round and round.

Having an eight-foot Ribblehead Viaduct in my garage waiting a baseboard and layout plans, I am watching this thread with interest. Really want to get ideas on capturing the scrubby moorland grass..

As we live fairly close, maybe we could meet up and discuss ideas for getting a realistic S&C layout.  Just for interest sake, in the Peco N gauge set track starter set, the ideas book has a track plan for Ribblehead viaduct and when I had the set, I was giving it some serious consideration.

Seen it done very well a couple of times, with a backscene down the middle and a totally different scene either side. 

The drawback for me would then be the lack of stabling for different trains.  I'm used to running my line with around two dozen trains available to cycle through, hence the yard is the same size as the scenic layout.
I'm not over fond of trundling the same train round and round for several circuits, although if something is particularly popular with the viewing public at a show then it gets a clear route through the fiddleyard for a second go.  ICE expresses seem particularly attractive especially to kids as we can wiz those round at high speed, even with 9" curves on the inner circuit!

Sounds like a plan - I'm in Orton Waterville, so just ten mins away.
