Nice pictures Gerry.
Your next layout needs to be based along a coastline somewhere so you can use you painting talents to produce some great back scenes for it.

Glen , yes they are overhanging with the lower part stuck underneath.


Thanks. The combination of shadow detail on the print and real three dimensional separation gives a great effect!

Don, Great job!! Its great how you have used the same print in the upper and lower walls, but they look quite different. Are the capping blocks on the lower wall overhanging the lower part of the wall or not? It looks like there is a shadow under them but I can't tell if there really is one, or its ...

But they look good sitting there. especially if it was running with no wagons behind. Why would you bother coupling a wagon on, when you can just take a small load on the bonnet.

Thanks again, gentlemen. My first thought was to go with something from Bachmann. I'm busily scouting all over ebay and Amazon to familiarize myself with what's out there and I've put bids in on a couple of items. I also ordered one of the Bachmann pickup/highrailers just to see what it's like. You...

I'd say the competition has just stepped up a level with the announcement that you are taking part.
I'm looking forward to seeing your build take shape. I still remember the outstanding entry that won the 'paper' challenge a few years ago. :!:

Re: Beer Garden Terminus - O9

Could be one of two things - 1. the wiring plan is wrong. 2. there is a bad connection in the joint in the fish plate between the fixed rail near the point frog and the moving part. (I've seen this many times and I aways solder a wire to jump than pa...

I like the way you have got the track gracefully disappearing out of the scene through a tunnel without having a hard back board immediately behind it.
The eye accepts the track has naturally gone. And the scene just carries on without anything looking out of place.

Very skilful design work. 8)

Re: Anorak Heaven

However from what I gather most of what is shown is out of box - again I don't know as I don't move in these circles. :twisted: I think it happens in most clubs; a natural division of "box collectors" vs "scratch builders" Luckily not on this group - because there is not much on...
