I have to say that from the other side of the gangway, I was helping to operate Broadwater Junction, it looked really impressive.  To see a long train (freight or passenger) wend its way through the moorland countryside was really pleasing.

Yes it does look good and size does matter as train disappears in the landscape.  Had hoped to get to club tonight but a SWR -mare at Winchester has blown that out the window ...

As the main operator for the day, I have to say it has great potential notwithstanding the teething we expected,and got.It's amazing how small a 27 wagon train can look,dwarfed by the scenics.

It's 20 foot plus,as for the track plan ,It,s Hawes junction or Garsdale,as it's known now,with very little compromise(I'm told).

The layout is 22' 6" long on six 45" boards. The track plan is pretty much exactly as the plan we found in a book although we are using Peco pointwork. I scanned the scale plan and then fiddled with the jpgs until I got something that was the correct scale size when imported into Anyrail. I then built the track plan on this using Peco finescale track and points. The station area and engine shed are correct size. We have the correct number of sidings north of the station but we had to reduce the length. The viaduct should be 51" long and on a slight curve but, as our baseboards are only 45" long and we aren't great mathematicians (to work out the complex shape of curved arches) we decided to make ours 33" long and straight.

The scenery was shaped following a photographic trip and we are trying to keep the features around the station area recognisable.


If you click the plan you might get it large enough to see.

It has to be said that following the design of a real location makes for a very different track plan to the sort of plan us layout builders would come up with on our own. I think the Midland especially had a love of single and double slips and of course always steered clear of facing points. Its surprising how inconvenient some aspects of the plan are to our modellers eyes. No doubt it all made perfect sense when it was built.

The engine shed will be included under 'modelers licence',it had gone by 1937,our layout is set in the mid fifties.

That's going to be a very impressive layout. I'm looking forward to seeing it in action!
