Great stuff!

 

That house looks remarkably like Mr Mashima's house. When it was announced that Mashima Motors was closing, I looked up the address on Street View and found that it was not the industrial unit that I was expecting, but a house, just like that one, with a bicycle leaning against the open gate.

Thanks I will pass on the comments to the module's owner. Perhaps in time the House will be extended and the dog and bicycle added.

I hope so - a little shrine to Mr Mashima.

I'm just loving this thread. Fabulous collection of N gauge Irish rolling stock.

Noel thanks for the compliment on the rolling stock. Expanding the collection is becoming addictive but finding suitable donors, time and information slows things down considerably.

A few photos of the T-Trak layout at the SDMRC Show at the weekend. This was a collaboration between the of us so not the modules or stock was Irish. The first four photos give a general view while the next seven photos show a little of the detail.

The layout comprised one outer loop and 3 inner loops. We had 4 trains running at the same time on the outer loop and one each on the inner loops. The rolling stock comprise British, German, Irish and Swedish outline models; some RTR and the rest scratch built or conversions.

Thanks Irish_N. Yes my Irish stock continues to expand mostly due to seeing the creative talents of many members of this forum. i just have to try emulating some of the stock I see. For some exhibitions my stock is supplemented by that of other operators. The modules also from a variety of contributors.

A few photos of the T Trak layout at the UMRC show in Belfast this weekend (25/26 August).

The second 2 Show The Strand Hotel and Wooden Bridge modules with new backscenes. The Atlantic and Pacific Hotels are an approximation of how they may have looked deduced from The links members provided. The other houses are based mostly on existing houses on Upper Strand.

Attached are a few photos of scenes of my T-Trak layout taken at the Cultra Exhibition on 10th November.  There was a very good attendance on the day and the people seemed to appreciate all of the layouts.

The first is a general view of the front of the layout.

The next is a view at the back showing trains awaiting their turn.1823451456_TTrak4.thumb.jpg.6b72652546dcc716ee0b9d771b8f8203.jpg

 

Next there are 3 detail scenes showing respectively vehicle on the corner module, Class 800 with a variety of bogie coaches and a U2 class with some LMS NCC bogie coaches

This next set of photos were taken at a small local show on the 14th November held at La Mon House

First up is an overview of the front modules

The show reflects farming interests so the next photo is a close up of the farming module developed for the day.

The last 2 photos show an A Class with a rake of Black and Tan coaches and a C class at the head of a mixed freight train

A few photos of the T-Track layout taken at the North Down Show 13th and 14th  April.

This year there was a modernish and  international theme both to the stock and the modules. In terms of stock the countries represented were Austria, Germany, Ireland and Sweden. The most modern stock was German where a variety of DMUs featured heavily.

 

The first 2 photos show an overview of the front of the layout.

The next set show the various trains in the 2 fiddleyards

754498473_TTrack4Trainvariety.thumb.jpg.1fe5bc5fc4d82d8eeb4a20a194acf03e.jpg

The blue and white coaches are Austrian and The Steam Train is Swedish. I did not get a photo of the more modern Swedish passenger train.

Some of the more modern Irish stock are the ballast wagons and the Container wagons, the latter are all scratch built and both were inspired by those depicted in Popeye's workbench thread.

The following 2 photos are of Intercity and Arrows liveried trains which will have been seen in photos previously posted in this thread. However they are seen passing the new WH Mills station module. The Signal cabin is a Saxeby and Farmer type, both are scaled down Alphagraix 00 gauge card kits.

The last 2 photos show a McDonalds module and a German Freight Train.
