Love the black and white pictures too. Have often pondered the idea of doing a layout this way - for one thing the name would easy, it would have to be Monachrome. Even sounds Irish.
On one level, it is merely a different case of 50 shades of grey (!); however, the biggest problem is foliage, as I've yet to find any source of static grass fibres or scenic foam. One day maybe and until then maybe we should follow Eamonn's lead and try photographing our own layouts in black and white?
I could do with one more 141, though I don't need it. If there comes a day when they're unloaded cheap (unlikely!), maybe.
I'm just worried the 121s will sell out before those who want can buy, and then they'll be stupid prices on fleabay.
dont ask, i have specific reasons for this strange method of building
small Attic , It just fits 2 x 9x5 boards and a short mid section with an extra few meter runs both sides in holes in walls into small side attics. 2 levels built, 3rd is planned
Track = >100 metres peco 100 track all mostly laid, star shape bus, 2.5 and 1.5 twisted bus, block wiring, two rail isolated gaps, 7 metre bus runs including track, too many insulfrogs , 80% of layout is wired above board, due to low ceiling and it being kids layout, while I sorta understood 'power divisions' and the difference x circuit breakers and then track occupancy requirements, as most is manual, i'v left all that to the latter part of the build, which is where I am now at, i use sand to level tracks and underlay for ballest
when i get the next section of track layed i will upload it to IRM
