  1. Just finishing off one from ebay. First attempt at kit, and found it fairly straight forward.
  2. Back from Model Rail Scotland with a handful of LEDs snd spent the night lighting the layout!
  3. First attempt at weathering, using Humbrol weathering powders. Test on my UK stock before risking a Murphy Models loco.
  4. Working on a small layout using an Ikea LACK shelf as a base. Measures 6 ft long and 10 inches wide and is DCC with one seep motor point. There's no fiddle yard as this would take up space so instead locos are moved on and off the layout and swapped between the two sets of track using Peco lifting cradles. Modelling post 2000 era and new to Irish rail scene as didn't develop an interest in railway modelling until 20 years after leaving Ireland so looking for advice on what to run. Layout name Trathnona, chosen by my daughter as she did a Google translate for her name, Eve!
  5. Sorry to hear about your frustrations, sometimes life get in the way of modelling and we have to scale back our ambitions, my 20 ft lay out shrunk to 12 ft then 8 ft before I binned mine. I now have an Ikea Lack shelf with a couple of pieces of track , even that can be too time consuming when you have kids, but a couple of half hour running sessions a month keep my interest up. Sometimes it's best to just do your own thing and not worry too much about accuracy, it's your layout, model the area as you want without getting too frustrated about it being exactly prototypical. Was watching your progress with interest as although was born too late for trains through Omagh, I used to walk along the old trackbed on my way to school every day.
