Model railway 6×4: Peter’s

Peter’s been busy on his model railway 6×4:

“Hi Al

I have been receiving your great tips for a couple of years now and thanks to you and all the other railway guys I started my own layout.

I have attached some pictures of my model railway 6×4 layout “Scoobton Basset” and I would be grateful for any comments and tips our friends can offer.

I think I am about half way through.

Can I also thank Arnie and Dave for the inspiration and know how especially Dave on lights and point motors.

Many thanks

And now on to Rob:

“Dear Alastair,

I enjoy all the tips and layout pictures and look forward to each new post.

I have been working on my own 00 Scale layout since June.

I came into the possession of a DCC Loco with sound in May and I was hooked.

I immediately started planning my own. I decided to name it The Great Western England Railway or GWER.

The area I am modeling I call Farland.

The main Station is Farland Howe and the country station at the other end of the layout and the highest point on the loop is called Shell Hill.

My wife’s name is Michelle, so Shell Hill.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.

I live in Colorado, USA which is a long way from the UK, but I have traveled there many times and lived in London as a kid for a few months. It made a lasting impression.
