The buildings are really excellent, the corner door detail especially .....and Huntley and Palmer's Coronation biscuits.... scratch
Where on the earth did you get (or how did you make....) those? Don't tell me in Reading.

Love the model snow too, very realistic but a bit overdone though. Wink

Hello Mike and the others. It's been a while.

Mike I just wanted to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed looking through this thread. In fact I was completely fooled by some of the photos and thought you had been posting the "real thing". So much detail and such good photo angles, you should be very proud of yourself for what you have created.

Pleased to see that you are all hanging in there.

Patrick

Again, some very nice detailing and great pictures. Nice little doggy under the counter!
Are the interioir details visable when you watch your layout? I hope they are, like a gem spectacors find when they look closely Smile

Blimey, how did I miss this? I think the problem is that I never clicked through to the photos ... What are the dimensions of the layout - it looks huge, with detail everywhere!
And of course, if my Garden Rail issue had made it through to France, then I might have recognised something!

hi, and thanks, its built on 8ft by 4ft mariane ply sheets surported on 4-2 chanlised timber, on 6inch fenscepost legs resting on concreat blocks set into the ground in a grid lock pattern.
each sheet has 6 legs,shareing surport from each other..its about 60ft long, and varies in width form 8ft ,to 15 ft..the origianl ground works took one year,clearing the overgrown garden, and building the wooden base..i started on the senic side last summer..and hope its never finished!
the idea is its a fully senic railway through 360dergrees..set in the 1950/60s england, a presevered narrow gauge railway running continental stock
Rule 8 all the way Very Happy
