That's a lovely looking locomotive in an equally looking livery.  :thumbsup:

All the Schools look very nice with lovely details.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Look at what Santa brought earlier, now been run in and DCC chipped as well and having a run round Geominster right now. This a lovely looking Locomotive in a very attractive blue. Full marks to Dapol and also to Derails for getting it to me so quickly.

Looking good, like I said, a surprise in the parcel which mainly was full of specially ordered Maunsell coaches - counted them out and thought "they've sent one extra!" before realising what it was....

Would have been happy for some of the Maunsells to have accompanied Scotsman.  :D

Maybe Nunney Castle might slide under the radar as well.  :beers:

Videos should ideally be uploaded to a YouTube account and the link posted, not uploaded directly to the forum.

Not being happy with Photobucket I subsequently use 'Dropbox' where I can have 2GB free and it's easy to copy a link onto the forum.
Only Me (the forum techie) is on leave until 3rd January.

George - It's great to see all your updates, I've been away from N Gauge and this forum for around 9 months, and having made a few attempts at creating even a small layout without success, this inpsires me to go and make it happen!

Thanks
Jon

A lot of time over the Christmas break to think about Geominster  and the direction forward. I have now templated the ground area between the Heritage Lines and Mainline tracks and laid a tarmac track serving the park and rear of Heritage Line, having had success with making slopes cut from mountboard I decided that I would continue and the photographs show the results. I have also constructed the road to the station complete with roundabout which will lead back out of Geominster to an upper level along the rear wall.

When I started model railways about five years ago with my original OO gauge I looked at Metcalfe buildings and tried a couple but was never happy with them and struggled to get them to look right, now I have decided to try again with N Gauge and I am pleased with the results so far, the appearance is good and I have decided to populate Geominster with them, I may illuminate some during the building. The bridge is the first one I have made and as I only wanted a narrow access into town used just one half of the width which compliments the rest of the road system I am adopting. I have just started work on the station.

Geominster has given me everything I wanted in a layout, running trains, the challenge of electrics, and now scenery. I am content with the overall finish and that is why I have decided to use better models as this will probably be the last layout I will construct, after all I want to have time playing with my efforts. It may not be prototypical but I am happy with it all and proud to have managed as far as I have. I have bought some good locomotives and rolling stock and sold off a lot of items that were probably bought on impulse.

The photographs bring the thread up to date in terms of progress and I hope to do more shortly. The combination of Hornby Railmaster for point, signal and mimic panel DCC control works well alongside the NCE Powercab for locomotive control. Who knows I may get time soon to arrange the trains into rakes ready for running.

Enjoy.






































I have even managed to adapt a display system for the locomotive DCC numbers which is constantly being updated by any additions.
