Smashing pics, Stu.
Maybe Wovenhand thought of you when they released 'Dirty Blue' ;)

Wonderful layout, I seem to recall an aerial pic of the layout showing the track plan. Any chance of reporting the photo or some more and a track plan.

Thank you, I don't have a track plan for it, the baseboard is 4ft by 2ft, with basically a double mainline oval with the depot sidings. Here are a few aerial photos if they are any help. I haven't run anything on this layout for a while as all my spare modelling time has been taken up on the new Porthkerry layout build at the moment.

Cheers, Stu

Agreed. Bags of character, and a really effective way to show the potential of N gauge. Thanks for sharing with us!

The end of an era for the Cridmore yard layout. I finished it's decommissioning today, some of the scenic bits I want to keep & re-use have been taken off & removed the baseboard from the trestle it's been stood on. All the trackwork, & some of the buildings & much of the scenics remain.

 I couldn't bring myself to break it all up & completely destroy it so I put a for sale advert up for it locally & already I've had a lot of interest in it & someone is coming to view it tomorrow. So hopefully it will live on for many more years & somebody will get some enjoyment out of it.

Onwards & upwards, I can start building it's replacement soon.  :)









Cheers, Stu

The layout has now sold! Had 4 other people waiting in the queue if the 1st buyer didn't want it which surprised me. Good news is it's gone to an N gauge enthusiast who has had N gauge for many years so all good  :NGaugersRule:
