This is a very nice one. Love layouts with ships. Best of both worlds.

This is a layout I'm hearing a lot about at the moment. It seems to have some of the best scenery and detail I've seen. It is featured in the Model Railway Journal no 185.

Nice picture David. Good to see all these Ropely pictures. Timely as it happens as a couple of BRMA members and I are considering making a small layout of Ropeley for exhibitions. Your pictures are a great help in giving us some ideas about what is possible. As it's a preserved railway we can run pretty much anything we like! biggrin.gif

Hi Fellow Railway enthusiasts,

As a collector and tinkerer of model railways (00/HO), I am particulary interested in fixing up old and unusual locomotives.

I would like some help in locating parts for

1. A 4-6-2 Loco Princess Elizabeth which need an XO4 motor but also other parts.

2. An SNCF model with overhead (cosmetic) catenary which needs very small springs and fixing of one of the catenaries.


Any of you guys (and gals ?) know of suppliers etc which might help. I can post photos on the forum if possible and perhaps can add them to the gallery (perhaps called 'Basil's current workshop') (Administrator assistance required ?) .

Looking forward to being involved in the forum

Hi. Very interesting panel, and really neat construction, too - looks like you've got some layout there!

I was wondering how you went about constructing it as I am about to do the same sort of thing myself, though I may go for some form of route switching rather than individual point switching.

With best wihses,

That's quite an impressive piece of work David.

I bet it looks great with the room lights off!

I hope you enjoy the pictures... Just for your Info:

* The viaduct is dead scale - appx 18 feet long.
* The stonework is actually photographically correct, having been traced from a photo which was corrected to zero perspective with a computer programme called "the gimp" and then accurately scaled within photoshop...
* The paint in the photo is just a quick undercoat, as the castings were creamy white... there's lots more work to be done there...
* Masters were made from plaster and DAS modelling clay, and six different casting masters were then created for piers, arches, king pier centre fillet and of course the parapets (inside and outside master for that)
* The bridge was cast in polyester and assembled with Epoxy and superglue - any gaps were filled with DAS and eaxh arch joint was re-carved to make them all different.
*All 48 downpipes are made with flanges each scale 6' to look like the cast Iron on the bridge pre WW2.
* The bridge is very long so to preserve it with no stresses when its moved, it is mounted on a specially made stressed beam constructed from laminated marine ply and epoxy resin. The beam is topped with a firm rubber mat and then a layer of ply, to which the bridge is fixed.

And yes, it can be supplied as a kit if anyone is brave enough - but it is very expensive to do so as the material costs and time to make the casting sets is many many hours (it requres 2 sets of pier and arch sets to cast each set too).

Now that's what I like to see, the railway put in the scenery as apposed to the scenery placed around the railway. Give yourself a gold star (or a pint, which ever your prefer biggrin.gif )

Hi Peter,

Some great views in your album thumbsup.gif
Your photography skills /camera are excellent, I also like the photo montage of the industrial area behind the loco shed.
Nice work, keep em coming !
