Hi All

Apologies for no updates. Decided to move house and put everything on hold. Now I have a converted garage to use was going to change gauges but think I can fit in a T gauge layout and a N gauge one so will start planning making use of the viaduct Doug produced for me. Also the added excitement of the powered points is of great interest.

Well have got a 8ft by 2ft baseboard all ready to go. Need to look in boxes to find where i put the viaduct. Then need a track plan but might just lay some track loosely and then play around with it.

Well received my order from T Gauge.com with track and ballast. The 750mm track seems to bend ok. Also got some polystyrene so will start laying out scenic area roughly. Have got a Silhouette Cameo machine so hoping to use this to print out buildings etc, initial experiment looks promising.

Hi, probably this is too late, but I tried ballast from Koemo for Z scale and it looks better than the t gauge ballast because the stones are not so round. Anyway, from 50 cm viewing distance there is no difference :)

hi there
I thought that I would send some pics on here to show how far I have done the viaducts.
I have used n gauge stone brick work and reduced this down in scale then glued the paper sheets onto the viaduct ,but I might re do this again now that I can nearly get the model look like stone.

Hope you enjoy the pics of Ribblehead and Dent Viaducts.









Regards
Graham
