Points laid today for 6 fiddle yard lines. Droppers to be installed then a test with all engines. One that end is ok. I'll do the same in reverse on the other end board.

Wow I didn't think my modelling would cause so much excitement, I just try and get things to look as best they can and make a layout look like it could be happen in the real world. Still not much to show other than those couple of work in progress shots of the end board, as you can see the shortest fiddle yard line will be just over 8ft long and there will be a short storage aiding either end for dmus or loco,s or even a double headed RTC train. next job is to do all this again in reverse for the other end board, and then the long fiddle yard lines, and then maybe at some point, I may get a loop and see a train go around....looking forward to that!

Here's the plan for George Street II. Both ends are the same so you'll have to imagine the curves yourself! (That's the problem with using a trial version of a programme)

It is a through station with bay platform and another station line for stabling. There are a couple of tracks running back from the station to stable trains. This should add some interest to what is deliberately a plain looking track plan where I want the trains to be lost in the landscape if possible. I hope there will be a cutting effect like the approach to some of the London stations into Liverpool Street so I will be making tons of Scalecenes arches!

Pics will follow as the layout progresses.

Having lived near and used the station at Forest Gate for 50 years, I'm looking forward to this  :claphappy:

And yet another layout thread I must follow, it's a tough job but somebody's got to do it. Looking forward to this one.

The Fiddle Yard for my next layout is progressing well. This is roughly a foot short of half the fiddle yard. 3 mark III coaches gives an indication of its length and what will be a good run in the visible area once completed.

The other half of the fiddle yard is also coming on with all points laid and tracks laid up to the end of the edge of the end 4ft baseboard.

Maybe soon I'll have a loop!

On a different topic, I'm off to Warley for the first time and can't wait. Got an absolute bargain on trains from Norwich straight to Birmingham Int by booking ahead.

Happy modelling!

Regards


Shaun

Hey Shaun,

Just found this thread. Was a big fan of the previous layout so glad there is a new project in the Harvey house  :D

Ref Warley.....this will year will be my fourth on the  :bounce: and its fair to say its rapidly becoming more important to my than Christmas. Heck, I buy myself my presents from there so it IS Christmas :laugh:

There are some which don't like the crowds and the paying for parking (not a problem for you of course), but for me its all part of the fun (ok not the parking, but I will try what I did on year one this year and park in the station car park if I can).

LNER A3 and A4....check
Deltic.....check
HST set......surely?!

So I now have two loops laid in the fiddle yard and for the sake of seeing some trains going around, I laid some track at the front. this is not in the planned position and is only tacked down to stop it moving while I play!

It's nice to see 9 coach trains running and long freight trains although they won't all be like this!

I think I will need shares in peco flexi track!
