Cridmore Yard
« on: January 01, 2013, 09:54:13 pm »
Hi, just thought i'd post some photos of my layout which i built a couple of years ago, its a 4x2 double track oval with MPD sidings in the centre, with dc  power & peco streamline track & insulfrog points, also has working station lamps, yard & street lamps. Its pretty basic compared to most layouts on here but it gives me somewhere to run my trains  :)
Unfortunately i didn't take any photos of it while i was building it. Era is BR blue 1980's to early 1990's. Anyway heres a few photos.

Looking very nice, a lot going on in a compact space, without looking overcrowded, exactly what N gauge is all about :D

An excellent little layout. This is very well modelled and proves how good for space N Gauge can be.
A great inspiration to all N Gaugers. I enjoyed looking at these photos. :thumbsup:

Thankyou so much,

Looks great. Have been relegated to a 5' x 2' 4" under the bed layout and your layout has given me a lot of inspiration.

I love seeing the big layouts but then sometimes I cry, check my lottery numbers and cry some more!

Seriously, lovely detail. Made me want to get sticking and painting again, NOW, but SWMBO is in bed asleep and its obviously not accessible.

 Nor is the layout! Thought I'd say it before you'all did.

Going for a similar design but with an autorail depot in the middle.

Thanks again. I'd say HNY but when do we stop saying Happy New Year to everyone?

Cheers Weave :beers:

A cracking little layout with some nice detail... :thumbsup:
Particularly like the overgrown track and the small stream.
