Well it's been a while since I've updated this thread.
Here are some pics of Northallerton that I took a couple of weeks ago. As you can see we are using the woven card and glued down kitchen towel method for 'first fix' scenery. This has then been covered with textured paint. THe one I used is from b and q and is their own brand. The brown paint is acrylic.

I should say ballasting is just about complete and there is some fine titting-up to do.









Cheers
Kirky

Oh yes, I also found these of a a house. If I could get some sense out of googles ipad app I would be able to post a link of the street view of this house. Needless to say its on the A167 just after (or before) the crossing.

Nice to see it coming along. How long to finish do you think?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Cheers for the responses guys.
How long to finish? Well it was always a four year project from 2011. We are also booked for our own show (Cleveland model railway club) next year. I'm a teacher so hopefully I might get a bit of time in the summer holidays.
Cheers

Wow!!
What a magnificent project with some real engineering built in.

What are the cable holders that you have used - they look like ring binder spines?

Hi Phil
That is exactly what they are. They are not my favourite part of the layout.

Just a few pics to share of Northallerton progress.
We've had some problems with the textured paint slipping and therefore not filling the various grooves that needed filling. We've therefore used plaster and polyfilla. The latter gives a very smooth finish after a light sand.
The final image in this set shows the artists trowel I used to apply the plaster or polyfilla.
The paint is acrylic burnt umber.









Cheers
Kirky

Here's a little bit of info about the Northallerton control panel.

As stated elsewhere on the thread, Northallerton is run using an ESU ECoS. We use iPhones and iPads with the excellent touchcab to give us a handheld option. This works well. However controlling the points was always intended to be controlled by a Panel (ie not DCC). As such the panel is actually very small, and integrates with the base boards so we won't have any extra panels to lug around with us when exhibiting. As you can see in the photos the panel consists of a row of toggle switches which are simple on offs connected to the servo4s from MERG. As yet we have no decision made on how to operate the fiddle yard and as such is manual for the foreseeable future.





As can be seen in the pis, we have a track diagram which is colour coded to show which points need throwing for which route.

Cheers
Kirky

Just a quick update guys.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I was struggling to make my ipad play ball.
Hopefully the link below will take you to a google street view. There you can hopefully see a vague similarity to this:
