Early in 2018 Wexford Model Railway Club started an ambitious project to develop a modular exhibition layout in O gauge. New techniques were deployed for building base-boards using Scandinavian 6mm birch-ply hot-glued to the baseboard which are then strengthened with glass fibre/PVA. Advanced wiring and custom electronic control boards were used. Simple but robust trestles were developed which fold flat. A couple of photos for the record: By Easter 2018, the early stages of the project were in place and exhibited at the Wexford Exhibition:
I am helping a friend develop an O Gauge British Rail outline exhibition layout based in part on my recent OO Diesel Depot. We have started by developing three baseboards using the same techniques namely 6 mm Scandinavian birch plywood 100 mm lengths hot-glued to the underside of the baseboard. The end cheeks were formed from two sections of 6 m plywood stuck together with wood glue before using a pillar-drill to precisely mark the dowel points. Metal dowels were fitted to precisely line up the boards for quick assembly.
Join us for our first ever Model Railway Day at Whitehead Railway Museum on Saturday 9th November! The exhibition will be held at Whitehead Railway Museum, Castleview Road, Whitehead BT38 9NA and will showcase layouts on display in the Carriage, Locomotive and Stables Galleries from 10am-5pm. Two dozen layouts will be on show for the event including a never-before seen museum standard layout from England, the ‘Saltdean’ a Victorian Model which includes a brewery and 0 gauge locomotives based on William Stroudley’s designs. Layout highlights include Thomas the Tank Engin
I have a separate thread regarding the development of the Diesel Depot layout (see: The layout is almost complete apart from some trees at the backscene. This new thread is to demonstrate the layout in its UK British Rail "blue" incarnation. A few photos of the layout with BR stock caught by some Spring sunshine this pm (including large logo Class 37 and a Class 08 on oil wagon shunting duties):
