Hills and meadows - Hills and ......

warning with thanks to Photobucket who has recently changed their policy all my images are no longer visible. I have moved them to Flickr but I am not sure if I can restore all image links, so if please visit my flickr photo book for all images

Hi all.

after a too long break after Highbury Fields the house move is done, most of the boxes unpacked so time for a new project. and I think I can say as complicated as the previous one but almost twice the size 350 metres in total.

What is planned. 3 fiddle/ stacking yards. the main one can stock 35 long or 50 short. a 6+2 track main station, a shunting yard with TMD and a 4 track main line all on 3 layers. Ssame as Highbury Fields not a specific area it's still rule 1 although there will be some ECML influences.



I had already ordered all the wood work which I could pick up today.



also the back scenes are in house, special thanks to John from art-printers who has done a sort of special commissioned job for me as the design I wanted wasn't available in 40 ft. so that's the first project I will do attached board on the walls for the back scenes.

as I will have rond corners I have made a little tool which will also help making nice smooth bends, smallest one is peco r3 up to ...



and after some diy you get this



always smooth nice corners.

this is the train room, still some boxes to do although most of the boxes are train stuff.

best regards

Maurits

Definitely looking forward to seeing this all come to life.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

If it was anybody else , we'd probably be thinking , "Yeah , right , CJ Freezer in his most expansive mood !" but because of who this is , we're actually thinking , "This is probably going to end up twice as big & twice as complicated !" And there will be multiple trains running in about two days ! Best of luck with this one !!! Ric
