I was asked to post some more pics of my layout, well here they are.
Please bare in mind that it's a long way from being finished and has'nt been touched for at least three years.

Hi Phil.C,

Welcome to the forum


The pictures are excellent ........ i particularly like the milk float at the station can almost hear the bottles rattling in their crates


The road coming down on a curve has given me an idea for one of my layouts i have been puzzling over how to get a road in a small space but provide interest.

Upnic,
Roads take a lot of space, mine is a single lane over the bridge, i've been meaning to put some trafic lights there but as I said I have'nt worked on this for many years.

I've just realised that the pictures were uploaded undersize,and there's no editing facility on that post for me to resize them!

Hi Phil,

Really like the layout - it's a lot more finished than mine!

Know what you mean, I used to have the same toy as a kid, and have just bought the Oxford Bedford CA in Unigate colours, well I had to - Dad used to drive one in the 60's!

I've just found a 60' concrete water cooler which is an important part of the pit scene...i'd forgotten all about it, i'll post some more pics later.

I have also noticed that after...(and it's not three years, it's five
) of not operating the layout, there are a few gremlins in the electrics.
It gets very hot in this loft in summer with some rail expantion. So, there is some work to be done there!!
