Rodneybridge
« on: February 01, 2014, 03:17:27 PM »
Thought I'd start a new thread with this one rather than tack it on to my train on a Khazi!!!

Rodneybridge was built for and named after my late Father. It was constructed as a fairly typical home type layout without exhibiting it in mind. Dad was obsessed with sidings and requested as many as possible so I decided on a large Terminus serving a fictitious town with a canal running through it as he was also a boater.
It's all Peco setrack with manual 'hand of god' points as 'that's what he had as a boy'.
Dad always liked quick results so therefore threw lots of money at me to bring it all together as speedily as possible, hence the Lyddle End buildings and narrow boats. All the streets and business names on the layout are named after members of our family....Dad got a big kick out of that.

I once visited Gaugemaster with him which is only a couple of miles down the road for me (heaven) and one of their assistants asked him which era he was modelling?........'the sh**ty era' he replied, to which the amused assistant asked 'when did that start?' to which Dad and I looked at each other and both said 'more to the point, when's it going to end?'.........I clearly inherited his sense of humour ;D

Hope you enjoy it as much as he did.

Cheers

Jason

Love the colour of the canal - suitably 'yeuchy' :thumbsup:
