Looks pretty good Derek.
Maroon carriages always look quite smart to my eyes.

:hellosign: Many thanks Martin, yes I have to agree especially with a Maroon `42` or `52` as motive power.

Very many thanks for these interesting photographs, Derek.  And how about a 'Castle' for motive power rather than one of these smelly things that break down?

 :hellosign: Many thanks John, while I have a love of all things trains, trams & buses I am more interested in the mid to late sixties through to present day. I do have more than one steam locomotive & there will be more, just not at the top of the wish list.     :sorrysign:
          regards Derek.

They look very nice Derek.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thank you for the photographs.

 :hellosign:
  Good Evening everybody,  finally sorted the plans in my mind to work for now & more importantly when we move & actually found time so here's the start


 Missing to the left will be a 248 cross over for the Quay platforms. Although space is at a premium all other points will be "6s" on this part of the layout.


 The two nearest tracks being the main line to Penzance/ St Erth, then the Quay passenger line & the freight loop


Please excuse the various wires & other bits which will be hidden, the platforms hold up to 8 or 9  coaches. The main line turns away from the town while the Quay branch disappears through an arch in to the town.
  Been looking & think I found 3 mm foam board is good for the base, strong but light.
  Lot's more to do but I feel a start has been Made at last. Any or all comments always welcome
    regards Derek.

Hi Derek,

All looking good. Must be difficult with the move. Sort of been there and then not done it although the sword of Damocles is always hanging above us  :doh:.

Lots on the Forum, I'm sure you know, about Kato #4 points but glad your doing as much as possible with #6s. I have lost lots of potential space on the other (lesser mentioned) side of Sant Pau de Mar to fit in the #6s but worth it for peace of mind, I think.

Anyway, great you've got a plan for now and the future and nice sweeping curves.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers weave  :beers:
