I moved from Lincolnshire to Cambridgeshire in May and I had built an OO gauge layout in a log cabin. I left most of it behind as part of the house sale.
I started on my new layout in March this year and its in a workshop/shed behind the Garage, Lighting and power was already in there as were some Base units. I used what was there and added some old wardrobe sides/doors to complete the base.
The layout is 9ft4in x 7ft3in for the main part with a further 4ft x 2ft section for a terminus station.
There are 2 lower level ccts and an upper level. There is still quite a bit to finish but pictures show progress to date. Stations, Church,School,Garage and cottages still to build.
I built the Iron Bridge, the Station Platforms, the Narrow Boat and the Lock gates from scratch.
I have gained valuable hints and ideas from posts on this site and especially from Dangerous Dave and always look forward to his posts.
Hopefully these pictures will give you an idea of my progress so far.
Now on to Fred.
Lots of you left questions on Fred’s post, where he showed us how he makes his trees.
And no wonder, it’s stunning stuff. If you missed it, it’s here.
Well guess what?
He’s gone the extra mile for us all, and he’s put together this superb ‘how to’ vid:
hope this will answer comments and questions about the tree you published.
Thanks from fred”
A huge thank you to Fred, I think it really is stunning stuff.
And thanks to Tony too.
I do love seeing the layouts, warts and all, as they slowly come to life.
Looking at some of the posts on the site, it’s hard to imagine how they will ever transform in to the works of art they all become. But they all do, in time. That’s why I keep posting ’em.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to get going on your own layout.
