Hi Mark

Great looking layout, I'll also say that I particularly like the platform level pictures. Very inspirational. I'd love to create something on the same scale but I lack space so I think creating a similar view to this (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/gallery/71/2657-021118214625-710232070.jpeg) in a little T-Trak module or cameo would be particularly effective.

Keep up the good work.

One that I had missed.  Very nice love the platform "furniture".  Sadly my ERA doesn't allow CIS monitors which is ironic as I used to install the damn things.

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year  :beers:

Thankyou as always for the great comments & even having one of my pictures used on Simons blog over on http://nscalenotes.com/modelideas/t-trak-modules/ This is worth a read  :)

As I've been on earlies this week & now on rest days, I've had the chance to populate the station & run some trains. Still running slowly along Platform 7 until I attach the clear plasticard sides which I'll be doing next.

I have lamp posts on order too from P&D Marsh for the street in front of the station & also for the holding sidings next to the station. The area behind Shrewford No1 signal box & where the Abbey stands needs major attention next. in this area I'm thinking of making a representation of a football ground (like the real Shrewsbury's old Gay Meadow) so watch this space...


47535 approaches Shrewford with a service from London Paddington (With modellers licence I've extended the old Paddy-Wolves service) past No1 signal box, & the area behind which is full of modelling debris  :-[


The train is routed into Platform 3 instead of 4 this evening due to a Sprinter 150114 which was undergoing fitters attention on a delayed service to Chester


A look along the populated Platforms..another 150, 150128 has arrived at platform 7 & terminated from Chester, looks like this may turn around & go back to Chester if 150114 can't be fixed over on platform 4






150114 is now declared a failure so all passengers change & board 150128 at platform 7b for Chester, the service is now 20 minutes late

Cheers for now :)
Mark

“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

Hi Everyone,

Not a fat lot to report on Shrewford but I've been adding lamposts to 'Railway Street' & also the carriage sidings. I'm planning on creating a representation of a football ground behind No 1 signal box once I get the materials together.

I've still got to nip to my local model shop to get the clear plasticard to create the lip along the edge of the board.


First up is a picture of Railway Street. I'm yet to add the phone boxes next to the Taxi rank & also road markings.


An birds eye look down on the station showing the in progress layout..


Now the carriage/DMU sidings which now have lamposts fitted from P&D marsh


Seen is a 4 car Class 150/1 Sprinter which is being cleaned & watered ready to form a Pwllheli service


A Class 47 is on the Loco siding receiving some fitters attention


A look at the station showing tucked away on platform 5 a Network SouthEast DMU on loan to Tyseley forming a stopper to Wolverhampton...

And finally a couple of shots from yesterdays InterCity 125 service from Swansea to York (With modellers licence i've pinched it from running via Birmingham & instead via the Marches route)







Cheers for now,
Mark  :)

Hi Everyone,

Thankyou for the kind comments  :thankyousign:

Well this is just a short update. With most the station & Railway street pretty much complete, only requiring one or two small details & finishing touches, attention is now turned to the south end of the layout which needs a fair bit of work. The embankment on which  the 'Abbey' stands is in dire need of detailing & also the large area behind Shrewford no1 box needed filling with something. This I've decided on a football ground which will be a loose representation of the old Gay Meadow what used to be at Shrewsbury. I've started constructing the east stand using thick white card...



This picture showing the scene so far.... so lots to do to with this end of the layout over the coming couple of weeks.
 
Cheers,
Mark
