 :hellosign: Finally sussed the photo uploading. Many thanks Chris in Prague for the vast majority of the above wagons waiting patiently for track & traction. I have moved the track to the top level of the shelving so lots of natural light for photos of stock as the layout takes shape. Lots of ideas been formulated on "Scarm" so hoping to make a start before back to work on Tuesday, thanks for looking
     regards Derek.

Morning Derek,

Glad you sussed the pics thing  :claphappy:, even my Mrs I.T. has trouble with it so thank you for those.

Sounds like the ball is rolling so looking forward to more.

I lose track of my own layouts, let alone others, so just seeing/ checking if you are still going ahead with the Porthsea Quay thing etc.? It's been a while and people change their minds. Not a problem, just asking.

Good luck with today's endeavours on your day off.

Cheers weave (no beers, just coffee for you!  :D)

Great to see some photos. up, Derek. Yes, there is a lot of BR, Continental, and "Castle Estates" goods stock running to and from West Porthsea Town & Quay, with the 'Ferry' stock running through to and from Britanny, France, and beyond. There are new BR Blue Class 04 diesel shunters on sale, new, for under GBP 60, to marshall those wagons and vans and take them to and from the Quay, if you don't already have one? Martin is also finishing his new PO livery goods stock and we've not forgotten you, so some can also appear on your layout, in due course, when you're ready.

I do hope that, after your long wait, you'll be able to get to work on the layout, very soon.

Hello, thanks Chris (weave), Chris (I P) & Martin. Hopefully can make a serious start on the layout on my next day off, (today was family time). Work is a pain but means we can afford a few extras so I can live with it.
      The plans for the layout still very much involve West Porthsea in the mid to late 60s & have plans on Scarm  which I will share when I make definite progress. Sorry for being slow to start, thanks for your interest
         regards Derek.

We eagerly await the SCARM plan and tracklaying. I do appreciate that, like me, your spare time is very limited but all the long hours of work do help us to afford our hobby. I really admired the previous plans but I would imagine they might have been a little over-ambitious? Better to start simpler but leave room for adjustments before fixing anything firmly in place. BR in the 1960s was already rationalising trackwork.

If you cover from roughly 1960 to 1968, with a temporal extension into the 1970s and the BR Blue years, you should keep a lot of us very happy, Derek. 8-)

Hello, Yes days off always seem few & far between especially as Steph (my good  lady) also works, so time together is precious.
       Having looked at my latest plans I am definitely thinking of steady expansion as at the moment everything will be concentrated in the small concrete shed (2.6x2.3m approx.)
     regards Derek.

 :hellosign: WOOD BUTCHERY COMMENCES. 
       Finally got some dry weather with a day off so have made a fresh start cutting the boards & hopefully learning from past mistakes. Photos & track plan soon as something to show. 
       Yes Chris (IP) always thinking big, but this time working in small carefully planned sections   :angel:
      regards Derek.

I hope all will be well, there, Martin. Mainly cold and grey, here.

Looking forward to running 'through' trains, Derek. 8-)

 :hellosign: Getting new gas boiler & pipes fitted so no more shed time, but have a Scarm plan idea which I think looks good so far


  The Pink boards are for West Porthsea Town Station, the idea is these are to be developed but also portable for future plans. The Red track is for exotic visitors only so will be hidden through the station. The small Blue curve is where the line round to West Porthsea Quay station leaves the main line. As always comments &/or suggestions are more than welcome.
       regards Derek.

Derek

Is the Quay station for passenger traffic?

Best wishes.
