Don't know how fair this will get :/

 

Welcome!

 

In this work bench, my first project will be on a Enterprise (New) Test Train, which will be consisted of a Ex BR IC Swallow liveried Mk4 DVT into a full yellow DVT & two modified full yellow Mk3 coaches being pushed with a Enterprising Locomotive. Hopefully the next project will be converting some Mk4s into a dedietrich set (swoosh livery), then hopefully building a layout (DCC or dc?).

 

When I get PST working, I'll post my plans for the NTT & progress.

Morning all,

Here are the two prototype designs for the Mk4 NTT DVT

I'm still undecided as of yet of which one to go for.... image.jpg

 

I have glued on a dropped head buckeye coupler on to the front of the actual Mk4 DVT & when once painted, there will be more details added later, some details will be added before painting.... But you'll see them when it comes to that time.

Cab detail added this after noon, just need a driver to be added & a dash board detail sticker to be added.image.jpg

 

I hope to added a MMI contractor ( 8208 at Heuston, 22/9/15) to the front & rear of this coach with fine black cables, maybe a plastic card build?

Any chance of a photo of the real thing? I have no idea what's going on here.

 

Any modelling is welcome, but without context,I'm a bit lost. But keep going please, workbench updates are the lifeblood of encouragement.

Somethings going on in the 'digital workshop' for the future layout .....image.png

 

The depot sign is for the custom homemade built depot I'll be building based on various depots, mainly Adelaide Depot in Belfast. It'll be used to hold a threE car CAF in one road & two co-co locomotives in the other road. It'll be fitted with working jacks to lift the three car CAF (or locomotive if in the correct road).

 

Map key:

O = destination (siding / station platform / shed)

o = signal

• = points

AT = automatic signal (see everard junctions video on signals)

--P** = point number

MANED = manual changing signal (user controlled)

STOP = Buffers

Tony, you might want to substitute "maintenance" for "maintance", and "Manager" for "Manger"...! :-)

 

(Running for cover.....)

 

Seriously though, excellent signage!

Another one, sorry! MANNED for MANED

 

Thank you! :)

 

Yeah.... My English skills/spellings are not the greatest.... :/

I want to base Holyfast station building off Douglas railway station building in IOM (I'll upload photos tomorrow), as I visited thus station in August past & its a wonderful station, a must visit.

Any tips?

So Holyfast is a terminus, a bit like Cookstown was. Could it be somewhere the NCC and the GNR both came into from different directions, or maybe the GNR and a northern extension of the MGWR....

 

The MGWR had some fine red brick stations like Ballynahinch (Co Galway), Ballyvary, or Mallaranny... Maybe it's an ex MGWR building in your scenario which end up in the north after partition in 1921.

If I understand of what you are saying, then yes by modern day terms of course. The station will be the terminus for some enterprise services, NIR services and some IÉ services, it'll also be the main station for DCDR Mainline / GNDR (Great Northern Down Railway). You could be be right, you could be wrong, I haven't as of yet decided the back story of the station.... ;)

That's the diagrams done, (with one or two spelling mistakes) , now to back to the MMI connections & sheds/station building.... Any tips for the station build would be much appreciated.

Right, here's the plan for the next few months:

 

Get the MMI connection on the 201 (8208) & at the correct size (currently slightly too big)

Get the MKIV test train sorted

Skip the DD

Build a locomotive at HOm scale (equivalent to 3ft) based on the IOM "class 550", No.21 AKA, Isle of Man no.21

 

Then once these are done, I should able start into the layout

 

Which me luck ;)

The vistiors were not pleased.. But the layout design is looking good! What era are you planning?

 

"The vistiors were not pleased.." ?? <- I'm confused :confused:

 

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. The era is between 2005 & late 2015, but please do remember it's a fictional layout based around on a couple of fictional towns around the border of the north & south if Ireland with a 3ft gauge branch line operated by the Isle Of Man Railway (in partnership with NIR & IÉ)which goes through the town of Ballynawood as a tram type line (like Alexander Rd in Dublin).

Spelling mistake... it's 'visitors', not 'vistiors'.

Right, let's skip over my bad English ( I can speak it perfectly fine btw)....

 

I have finished the MMI connection & need put it on the locomotive, which I'll do once some problems get sorted out (I'm not going say what they are as I'm going send them off to somewhere to get fixed) on the locomotive. While I send off the locomotive to that some where, I'm going start scratch building the first narrow gauge locomotive, some of you's might know what locomotive it is, some of you might not. It is the IOMR new diesel locomotive No.21 (which is similar in design to a 141).

No.21 at the test track in the factory in the USA. Press release photo from the manufacturers website, railsoultions.com

 

I have found a good priced locomotive for a donor chasia on eBay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/381477286902

Once I buy that, I can start scratch building the locomotive.

Nice Garden Scale Loco there Tony :)

That's actually a 3 foot guage locomotive, it's a class 550 (/MP550) , built in 2013 for the isle man railway company for thunderbird, PWD & charter duties & costed £400,000.00 (£0.4m). She has worked the 2014 transport festival charter trains & a dinner special. She has had some heck ups because of being a brand new locomotive & is currently get repaired.

Morning all. The project above is & will be on a very long pause. (It's for my granny's furture model railway which hasn't been started, I'll post updates on that when there's an update to post). Anyways, not includeding my granny's OO gauge railway, I think I've given up on OO guage, so I'm starting a new project which is a wee but larger than OO & O. I'm going point out one thing first before I post ideas & furture photos, this is my railway & I'll do as what I like with it, not every thing has been correct places, for instance, if I build, say a G scale MKIV from a Playmobil carriage, I might have the doors centred as that's where they are on the Playmobil coach. This railway is for me & for my imagination to go 'wild'. I'll post updates when I have an update :)

Nothing. Nothing has gone to plan!

Also no Garden layout.... too costly! :(

Sorry....

Attempt two! - He's at it again....

But, there WILL BE a Holyfast Depot & a River Nore station sometime in the future, just can't say when.... but it'll be on a different layout to this 'plan'.  

 

Anyways, heres the almost complete branch line station; "Somewhere" for this layout....IMG_20190103_173228.jpg.903aec25ed3672342795872f857bc02b.jpg
