Hi all.

Here is my latest project. Hartley Lane.
Scale: 00 Modern DCC
Length: 1200mm folds out to 2400mm
Width: 310mm (including frame)
Height: 250mm

I wanted to build a small layout with my now redundant hornby DCC equipment. I have built this as a test track and so that my 2 year old girl can see it in action. I also wanted to be able to take it to friends house's & maybe an exhibition once complete. I have also used this to try my hand at weathering. The layout is in two sections which is hinged and folds ontop of its self.

Hope you enjoy.
Rich

Very nice construction there Rich. Looks like great fun. Your two year old will love it. Very interesting at exhibitions especially if you have a little sound,even a little background sound would do. thumbsup.gif

Hi Rich That is very nicely done, and excellent modelling. I think you should out a glass /perpex front to it.

Albert.

Very well done micro layout you have there

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience." George Santayana.

Can't wait for the weekend. I mean, come on, after Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says W T F!

Great layout there Rich, I like the fact that you have added a gantry to your fuelling point, as I have (still under construction).

Cheers, Chris.

Smashing layout !
I have just order the Ratio Gantry Crane - didn't realise how tall it was! Never mind!

Can you tell me where you got the shed mobile platforms from? Are they PHD design?
Photo isn't clear - Is there also a jack or hoist or something too? Any info on interior would be welcome as I want to detail my diesel shed interior.

Regards
Ray

The platform was a knightwing Maintenance Walkway (25") Ref: PM134 from www.expressmodels.co.uk. All I did was change the length to suit what I wanted. The jacks are by bachmann. Pits are by Peco, lighting by expressmodels white strip lighting cut into blocks of 2, 3 blocks over each pit. hope this helps
