Looking forward to seeing this one develop. There is a superb miniature layout of NCB sidings in South Wales on the forum (sorry, I forget the name) which may give you some scenic ideas.

I think this is the one you mean although something appears to have gone wrong with Stu's Photobucket account :worried:

Yes, that's the one, thank you, Nobby. Stu has done a superb job. I had missed the new update with the NCB Class 04 (another excellent model).

That layout is stunning, If mine comes out half as good as this layout I'd be so happy. Got an amazing atmosphere to it. The photo's are simply stunning  :beers:

I knew it would be a while but finally another small update. Decided to get the ballasting done and after a lot of advice on the forum and my Dad, This is the result of my first ever attempt. Still tidying up to do on the point but so happy with the result ( Thank you for the advice ) worked a treat. I'll be removing some as go kind of carried away and ended up ballasting literally half the board but it is small.

Little teaser shot if you will and I know, I know more tending needed to make it look better :)

I'm just totally stuck with what to do on the layout changing my mind then back again. Need more inspiration as I have no idea what's needed for a colliery or Goods an Coal yard. Trying to find overview photo's to help out but struggling

Thank you for reading and viewing :)

Hi

Just found this one like what you have done so far. For coal yard have a look at Gobowen coal yard it was last place to get household coal deliveries and lasted well into the EWS era.
Coal loafing/unloading can be as simple or complicated as you want it anything from a guy with a shovel to complicated tipplers which lifted the whole wagon to be emptied to massive overhead bunkers.

From what you have said I would go for a class 66 with MEA wagons loaded or unloaded by digger all are available in N and Oxford Diecast have a suitable tipper truck in the current range

Thank you so much for the replying and letting me know about this yard  :beers:

This is exactly what I have been looking for so I can change my era within reason if I would like too.

Many Thanks, Chris

I think I'm doing it the wrong way round but hey :)

This is how it sits at the moment. I really would like a goods & coal yard I would like line side good shed to fill up the Box vans but also a coal yard. I've looked at other layout's for inspiration on how they a yard is laid out. I've got ahead of myself with having the track down already but need help  :beers:

Not sure what you are asking for really but for what it's worth, the problem here is retrieving wagons from the sidings.
It seems that only a loco and two wagons (maybe 3) can be moved from the top sidings in any one movement. I think it might have been better to have the point nearest the loco and wagons on the other side of the point to its right.  You could then have had two sidings of reasonable length running above where the loco is (this would be your goods yard) and perhaps just a single shorter siding to the right (perhaps serving as a private yard - perhaps a coal merchant ?).
Hope that make some sense.
Does look good so far though. Keep the updates coming.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :
