Hey Tim,
Operating went suprisingly OK, got to grips with the dynamis and the loco's ran smoothly.

It is a preserved line, just an excuse to run everything :D

The girl on the right is Cheryl Cole :D

I think i was. There were a few younger than me helping operate layouts (one of my mates for one) but i believe i was the youngest layout owner. Saying that most of the layouts seemed to be club owned ones

Evening all!

First of all i'll apologise for the lack of updates as of late, had a fair bit of work on. Next some good news :D I now have my new place for my next year of Uni, so naturally SVR was the first item to be moved in.


As you can see there is a fair amount of room (enough for SVR and my house/coursemates layout) so this has already been designated as the train room.

The layout itself, well i've replaced part of the platform and thats about it. I'll bring you updates as and when...

At last i have a picture related update for you!! :D

I'm going to start with exhibitions, this time next week Sheaf will be at it's second exhibition (Glossop) so feel free to come say hello (If you're not at the N Gauge Show of course :p)

Now onto my Hawskworth Inspection Saloon, since i last mentioned it i have painted the roof Grey, glazed it, finished off the chocolate colour, painted the interior walls and added some basic interior. Just needs a few people and some decals to finish it off :D


More trees have appeared :D



I've been adding a few little details too, mainly ground signals and hand point levers :D



This is just a random shot of the shed added for fun


I've also finally added the platform edging to the platforms, makes one hell of an improvement..


And i'll end with a shot of the whole layout


So was it worth the wait?

If its a preserved railway you might want someone standing behind that guy bending over making as if to kick him up the backside, and a third person with camera ;)

The Hawksworth is looking good
