The MPD ,

Uploading 3 pics of MPD < (This is still work in progress - I still have loads of detail etc to add - including lights etc)
103
MPD From the Engine Shed end . Top right TT . Line from the continuous run up to Station / MPD is located under the Workshop on the right . buildings are removable for cleaning. Coal Tower and Ash Plant are butchered Superquick kits with much added detail
96
MPD From Turntable Rear. Right can be seen the Roof of the Terminus . The Storage siding Baseboard can be seen below the Station board
77
MPD Front left . Junction of tracks from storage sidings and continuous run , Retaining wall , MPD. Behind TT is Brewery Corner , line from continuous run is under this set of buildings , Like the workshops the Brewery can be lifted off for maintenance. The aim of this was to "hide" the rather tight curve .

MPD I Like Locos !!

What a fantastic station roof... makes Peco and Hornby's efforts look very tame...

I am going to attempt to add a few more pics of the layout from those taken as it was being constructed , This may not work as I am not good with pooters !! (That is a real understatement!)

The first step , Planning the reverse loop . Laid out on the floor of the Conservatory , constructed by a friend on the roof of the garage , accessed through the doors from the first floor lounge of the house (garage roof was a patio), built as a railway room but used for 8 years as a painting studio!

Reversing Loop and Storage Sidings (Fiddle Yard) Baseboard . Standard construction Sundeala and 2x1 (or metric eqiv) timber.

Attached File  Alpha__4_.jpg ( 1.68MB ) Number of downloads: 295



Now Testing the "system" if it works I will continue .

IT Worked !!

Storage Sidings , Trains run down back of board , around the loop and into Storage sidings , sidings represent the rest of the Railway in UK
Shelf in the middle is the continous run , the frame above that is for Hannem Central Terminus . The trains are being used to test the system . ( Giving me a chance to play trains !)

Lovely looking layout Graham - well done.

Regarding the photo problem. Caused by your camera photo size as you're taking shots at 3648 x 2736 pixels which are a massive 2megabytes each. The system used on here simply will not display images of that size and just produce those small thumb nails which don't do justice to all your hard work, so you have two choices;-
1) alter the picture size in your camera menu - something like 640 x 480 will do nicely, or,
2) shrink the picture using a picture re-size facility or some photo editing software.

I resized this one to 15% of the original using editing software (it's size is 547 x 410)



This is my favourite image from those you have posted so far.

The link you provided above just takes people to the Forum homepage.

To show a photo in a post simply do this;-

Start by opening an add reply box
Assuming you've created a plus+ member album, go to the picture (via the 'my album' link at the top of any page)
find the photo you want and left click on it once.
This will open another page with a larger sample of that photo.
On the right of the photo is a box called 'hotlinking' and in there is a box called 'image link'
Click once in this 'image link' box and the type will turn blue (which means you've highlighted it)
Press and hold down your Control key (Ctrl) and whilst it is held down press your letter C key (this will copy it)
Using your back button (green circle top left) go back to the post you were typing.
On the line where you want the photo press and hold the Control key again but this time press the letter V key (which will paste it into your post) and you will see something like this -
"https://www.modelrailforum.com/forums/uploads/1294921381/gallery_2682_205_13992.jpg"
Make sure that you put {img} immediately before the photo details you've just pasted in and {/img} immediately at the end of it, but using this kind of bracket [ * ] not the {*}ones shown.
Click on Preview Post at the bottom of your post and it will show whether the photo has been properly pasted in.
Carry on with your reply - adding as many photos as you wish by doing the above, and complete it in the normal way by clicking 'submit'

Sounds complicated, it isn't once you get used to doing it.
