Now, that is what my old dad would have called 'very neat'.

I'd have to agree!  :thumbsup:

Caz

You layout at the moment seems to be the same as the permanent state of mine.

But it still looks pretty neat.

Kind regards

Geoff

Have you hugged your locomotive today.

Very neat alignment method and connectors. My own layout is in 7 sections, but I sure wouldn't want to try and break it down these days... it was all too easy in the past to just run wires over section joins....  :-[

At one stage I did start doing exactly that, wiring across the joins and then realised that if I had a problem it was going to be a nightmare to get at the layout easily so bit the bullet and went back to the original concept and now stick religiously to it.   :angel:

Should our planned house move actually happen, I'll have loads more space so may pinch your idea Caz, if I'm up to it technically.

Hoping that I'll be picking brains like mad again come September!

Well the track relaying is now almost complete, just got one sticky Seep PM1 to sort out.  :(

Whilst the layout has been broken down I've finally taken the plunge and been trying to sort out the river and sea lock side of the layout as I've been putting it off for ages so here's a little update of what I am trying to do.

The lock lies near the head of a river so is close to the sea at Claywell and as can be seen the later arrival of the railway has almost hidden the canal's existence.  The only time this feature will be clearly seen is if I ever exhibit the layout as this side can have the false sky removed so it is viewable from that side.

I've used the Faller straight viaduct as the basis for my arches and some blue card to represent the water although the card gets painted eventually and then some water added.  This will now have to wait until mid to late September as it is getting just too hot here to work comfortably, just have to test run some trains in the meantime.   ;)




These were then modified and extended with some stone walling.




Construction detail using 10mm ply for the dock etc




A little filler and a bit of paint




A side on view before the river paper was added




Now need to paint the river a suitable colour before adding the water.

As this is a family forum I won't say what I'd like to do with them suffice to say it could bring tears to their eyes.   ;)

Local model shop has these clamps at 8.00 for a pack, local Chinese bazaar, 1.50 per pack.

I agree with Chris, I am also very jealous. I'm even more jealous when I read your threads about fitting sound chips!
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.
