A few more photos of the almost finished layout.











Unbelievably there has been faultless running of all of the stock that can be seen on the layout at the moment.

Almost unseen under the station roof standing at platform 2 is a Class 64xx coupled to a Hawksworth autocoach, whilst at platform 3 a 4CEP is awaiting to depart.





I will not be doing much more other than completing the backscene @Novice41 before offering this layout for sale.

I have been setting up the Hornby Railmaster software that will be used on the Bexhill Museum layout HERE,
 so the best way is to use it and get to grips with its idiosyncrasies of which there are a few but none too serious. This is the new touch screen that will be wall mounted alongside the layout.

Looking good Colin. Seems such a shame that it has to go. I'm still up for finishing the backscene if you want me to help. :(

More finishing touches.

Beneath the station building was a little bare, I had an old Metcalfe boilerhouse kit so I cut the open water tank off the roof and now it fills the gap nicely.




Columns to support the roadway.





Some trees and a post box:



Looking Good:






A printed label sheet:



Plus some plasticard:

The layout is complete (are they ever?).

The pictures are to give a view of approaching the Terminus to Platform 2.















On Platform 1 stands a 4CEP and on Platform 3 is the Hornby/Arnold Brighton Belle.

This layout will be on show at the BMRC annual Exhibition on Saturday 11th August.

http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=41881.msg517038#msg517038

After which it will be sold, maybe if you are interested you will be able to visit the show or you can of course PM me.

Well done Colin.
You should be immensely proud of your achievements. I particularly like the low lying shots looking towards the terminal. Very realistic.
