  10. Hi all Just a quick update showing recent vehicle additions and using up left over bits and pieces of plastic parts and card to make up part of depot stores and signals workshops and stores. Also a quick peek at some new signals and gantries I’m constructing using plastic card, left over ratio parts and some scale model scenery walkways, with all working signals. Just have a little more work to do on some parts, then fit and connect to control panel, Thanks for looking in TDR

  15. Hi everyone, some pictures and short videos of the changes I’ve been doing. Long story short the Layout Lisneal Road TMD has now been incorporated into my main layout, one pic shows the old storage/cement yard now removed and replaced by the Lisneal Road. I found it a struggle trying to maintain two Layouts so decided to put both together. 224389646_new2.mp4 1082966808_new3.mp4

  17. Hi All, Whilst killing time waiting on bits and pieces to arrive by mail/post, I made a start on the layout population, most have been repainted. There are 56 figures in total, in various poses and positions such as track and yard maintenance crews suitably dresses in Hi Vis P,P,E, workshop technicians and fitters, depot cleaners, Supervisory, office and managerial staff, and visitors. All of course observing Social Distancing. TDR
  18. Hi All, At last some loco movement on the layout, Tricky trying to hold phone whilst recording in one hand and the control throttle in the other and watch what your doing, some pictures of layout also and a running video although a bit random. Locos 112 in for routine service and 102 hunslet in for overhaul and new windows and lights. TDR LN_54.mp4
  19. Hi All, Pictures of shed now being fitted out with electric trunking, signs and various equipment etc. TDR
  20. Hi All Just a quick update, Thank you to anyone whom commented. I’m Very Pleased with all the positive and encouraging comments on the layout. For anybody seeking to know how it was done. Today I fitted the interior lights. Picture 1 shows the frame work with the LEDs and resistors, The shed then fits over snugly to allow for any maintenance/repair work to be easily accessed. Some pics of lights working. Last two pics are taken with workshop lighting off. TDR
  21. Hi All, Good progress this week so far on the layout. Loco shed floor painted and roller doors in place, interior almost ready for fitting out with LED lighting, lockers, shelving, bench, drill press, lathe, and associated equipment etc, also power cable trunking/ isolation box detail and signage. TDR
  22. Hi All, Killing time in lock down. Some items made up of scrap bits to represent a lathe, drill press and a work surface storage cupboard for the loco shed interior. Other items changed to represent NIR vans and skips for the shed area. A bit crude but look the part from a distance. TDR
  23. Couple of pictures of current stage of construction of layout. Hard standing all provisionally in place, drains, cable trunking, relay boxes, point motors and pathways in place. Oil tank scratch built from 35mm pvc waste pipe with ends from a Dapol prestwin wagon fitted walls constructed from Wills cement render and block plasticard. Track rust painted. All fixtures and fitting are by no means finished and require further detailing. Shed also having side windows fitted. TDR
  24. Great looking space, good luck with the build, will you be posting progress pics etc TDR
