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!

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

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

I may be able to get along on one of the show days at least to give some morale support....I'll put a provisional note in my diary and confirm nearer the day.

Hi all
Just recently I have now placed three new points with the motors on.
I have run the layout in this configuration and it runs sweet.


This layout will be on display at the Bradford Model Railway Show on first Bank Holiday weekend in May 2019.

Hope to see to there.

ps will try and do a better film clip as my first one did not come out good. :D
