  1. Hi after many years I'm now going to start my first real layout. The hope is to be a freelance layout based on the SL&nc railway flourance court station as a starting point with other bits & bobs from around Ireland as well. The hope is to build in o guage with the layout being built in. Module form, with the first one being about 1000 x450 mm with a fiddle yard at on end well this will happen at some point in the future. The track plan is bringing kept very simple a single line and short sideing. I hope as I go along I will post photos. Please all help will be greatly appreciated . Thank

    Thanks for your kind reply. I know the area a little bit and it's definitely good advice to go and look at the actual place that's to be modelled. My wife and I have stayed a couple of times in Benaughlin Cottages which are right across the road from Florance Court. I was able to get some good photos of the area on our walks. That's why I've chosen to name my layout Benaughlin :-) I feel a research trip may be in need to refresh my memory and since I'm heading that way anyhow I can't miss up an opportunity to visit Headhunter's lol. All the best, Derek.

    Hello I wonder if anyone can help me please. I'm looking for a small goods shed in keeping with station I'm working on. I'm trying to find a small Irish shed but as of now I'm not happy with the model or drawings I have been able to find.

    A quick update on the work in progress. This is how the station house is at the moment. The work this pasted few days has mostly been on the little storage houses. I have placed cobbles in the little yard and hand cut the cap stones for the walls.The next job is to make real wooden doors .I have an oak strip that I hope will work out in making both the doors onto the platform. The 2 doors in the yard will be made from a few coffee stirrer.
