It's not as big as you think. Remember this is a model of the ECML. There are in fact four fiddle yards, two on the main line, north and south and two on the Teesside line, east and west. If you think that on the ECML you can see (and we have available in N) class 91s, HSTs and voyagers in different liveries, north and south. And then there are coal trains, lots of them, the odd oil train, and containers. To and from Teesside there are similarly GC HSTs and more coal and containers, and also a bit of steel, then there is a lot to fit in.
Given that we are running it as a post 2000 layout, the only regular train we don't have in N is a 185.
Cheers

We've turned the fiddle yard boards over to find .....

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

We're in the process of tidying up the droppers. (The green wires are to switch frog polarity and will be just tied up but remain unconnected for a while yet)

Here's a board looking a little more acceptable

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Still some work to do before we can test the fiddle yard fully.

Thank you.
You are of course welcome to join our club, although it might be a bit inconvenient for you in Norhampton.
However, we do offer an associate membership which is very good value which I think is only 5 a month, plus a contribution for the days you turn up.
We also have an open day on Sept 21st, which I think is a pound. Hopefully we should have some trains moving on Northallerton.

Cheers

Indeed there are.
I tried to take some photos of the layout last week, only to find a full phone message. But thanks, you've reminded me I need to sort out me phone. If I can get that done tonight I'll take some his evening and hopefully post later.

Cheers

As promised, an update.
You can see from the photos we have been working on storage. The boards fold up into five pairs which are held together with a ply board.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

And on the reverse we have the hinges which slip into the sandwich construction.
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

We've been working on the points. A couple of servo mechanisms have been installed
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

This board being displaying gravity defying feats.
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

As mentioned the other day, you can see Northallerton working on sept 21 at the Cleveland model railway club open day.

Cheers

Hi Kirky,

I'm new to the forum, and reading through most layout planning/build threads on here.

I'm trying to build a set of 'layout features', such as different junction types, styles of fiddle yards etc.

I saw mention earlier in this superb layout that you's used Anyrail - would it be possible for you to post the .any file so I can have a closer look at how you've laid out the fiddle yard and a couple of the junctions please.

Regards,

Mark.
Mark.

It's great isn't it, you encourage people to join the forum who you think are friends and all they do is post images of you that remind you how unsuccessful the diet is, and what a miserable git you are.  You wouldn't have thought I was celebrating me birthday. :goggleeyes:

Thanks for posting those pics bb40...... Sort of.

I suppose when I've read my post again it can look a little bit like I'm having a go.
I'm not, I should have included a big smiley.
And it's me that's the miserable git I the photos. And what's more m actually thoroughly enjoying myself in the pics.
Cheers
