Hi Nobby
Glad you spotted the 'colours'. The intention is to go for an autumnal feel.

Cheers

Thanks for that Nobby. Im glad you think we have achieved the desired effect so far. It feels like sometimes we get our heads so far up the bottom of something we can lose sight of the reality. We have had such massive arguments about the colour green, and what green looks like in autumn.
Ultimately though we agreed that if it looks right, it is right!

Have you got a date/location for its first outing?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Starting to look very good to me.
I'm sure the layout will be ready in time for the exhibition.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I know it's a bit off topic, and not even our gauge, but how is the zig zag project going, @kirky ? Saw a presentation at last year's show and as a local lad, was very interested.

Interesting question Malcolm. I suppose the simple one word answer is 'slowly'.
There's been issues around where the layout will go (at the museum) so no work has begun on the baseboards as yet. Having said that buildings are being built and I believe the rolling stock kit building is well under way too. I think it will be very impressive when finished.

My dad worked on the railways and Skinningrove was on his patch, so I had heard about the zigzags, but never saw them. Tell the lads to get a move on, I'll be in Redcar in August!!  :D

Here is a bit of an update.
There's a couple of snaps showing some allotment features. Kindly painted by one of our OO members!

Here is a couple of allotments, the nearer one being an unpainted cast, the rear one being a Harburn hobbies pre painted model that cost a small fortune.


Here's another pre cast unpainted one.


And a couple of views of the southern end of the layout.




That's all for now.

Cheers

A few photos showing the progress made this morning.
Mainly showing the path to the network rail cabin.
And Dave working on the culvert at the southern end of the railway.

the cabin is a track sectioning cabin for the overhead line :)

so what you need is a non flat roof building, with wires coming up from the building to the OHL, i will try get a picture for you this week!

also dont forget our generator and UPS room at the north end of the station on the northbound side, then there is 2 relay rooms on the southbound side, still on the northern end of the platforms, inbetween the "up main" and sidings
