Vale of Oxbury
« on: April 13, 2019, 06:13:44 PM »
First exhibition of the year and looking forward to meeting up with members of the Forum at Epsom.

Some new stock  including something rather special from Steve DíCosta of ATSO CAD fame.
I have now fitted the ADM turntable and its engineering is superb, adjustable to 0.15 Degrees!

Layout has been tested and tweaked today, running very well.  I will share a few photos.
First up a re- named Farish Castle - Pendennis, super detailed and weathered.

Class 22ís taking the new Minis and Morris Minors to their owners. 99% would have rusted away 55 years on!
Car Flats  from NGS have been weathered; Cars from Oxford diecast toned down with Matt varnish and some repainted.

 Hi Carl,

I'm very much looking forward to Epsom and seeing this run.  :D



Despite being an LNER fan, I'm going to sad to see this one go.

Couple of photos of new locos for Epsom.

First up class 37 6827 well weathered and will probably be on a unfitted freight turn, though in early 60s I have seen photos with them on passenger turns from Wales into London



Now I have always been fond of 08's so a rule 1 loco for V.O.O as a yard as small as this layout has would have had the loco's on the pick up / drop off freight turns doing the shunting.
3406 again looking grimy.

So ready for NESCOT exhibition at Epsom for next 2 days. In addition to mainline action hope to do plenty of shunting with the new 08.

As long as I can drive the County a couple of times, I'll be happy with that.

If the Dapol couplings are playing up, you could always fit three-links and make a miniature shutter to couple them!  :smiley-laughing:
