This modification to the points looks so logical that it is suprising they are not sold to this format.

Having never actually tried it myself, I could only assume the thinking is that there is not enough strength left in the points for a commercial offering unless all the rail sections are left longer.

The modification looks great! Looks like it’s supposed to be like that! Will definitely steal that idea!

Hi T Gauge People

Just to update you all on progress work that I have been doing on this project.

I have now got all buildings 3d printed out and placed onto the layout and re painted the tarmac where I will be painting the markings on soon.


Hope you enjoy the pics. :D

I have been working on this layout as this may be out on Exhibition duties from next year from May onwards.

It is a 8 foot by 1 foot so easy for carting in a car.

Adding working street lights and hopefully Dough's Fire Engines to be made with blue flashing lights putting a fire out.

Added also pontigrapghs and trees which helps to make it come to life and thanks to Dough I have now the canopys added in with also lights underneath.


hope you enjoy :D

Please see pics below

Love what you are doing here, some great modelling.

Knowing this area well (we were walking round Ilkley yesterday in the rain!) it is great to see the details being added and being modelled so acurately on what is actually there around the station.

Hi NeilM
I am glad that someone has been there and reconized the 3D models and scenary in the station area.

Will be placing all the road details on next as I cannot place any vehicles on yet(boohoo) :(

Also be getting more figures on this layout as it is a town scene , and then shuttering the layout in its back scenes and fiddle yard shuttering with 9mm ships plywood. :D

I think I will be painting the back scene like Low Moor layout but will have to add more dymanic backgrounds to intergrate the back boards to the layout.

WIll keep posting updates as this layout should be in the May day weekend 4th and 5th May 2019 at Bradford Model Railwa Show who I am a member of. Once I no what is happening I will place the advert for the Exihibition details up on the forum.
I will have then two layouts then on Exihibtion lists to display and event from.

regards
Graham
