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

This is starting to get confusing!! We appear to have two layouts being built that feature the same viaducts on the Settle to Carlisle line. Hopefully, we're not going to get a layout war.. :? :? :? :?

Graham....any chance you can detail progress on your layout on a separate thread, please. It will then stop simple folk like me getting confused between the two.

Hi Doug
That is no problem as I have only the viaducts made ,but when I have done more work I will make new thread to my Ribblehead layout, I was just showing my viaducts.

Good luck with the layout.

Graham

Hi Graham

Hands off my thread!!!! I'm just waiting for some 3D prints before progressing to track laying but giving me time to think over scenery etc, which is the most important thing to me.

No need to be angry about it as Doug has told me to set another thread going. :!:

Apologies, my sense of humour. Missed the smiley face at the end which would have made more sense. :D

Will be interesting to see 2 different viewpoints of the same area.

Now if I'd not been on the phone for the last half an hour (being invited to another show btw!!), I would have posted the exact same thing! :P ;) Even commenting about the missing smiley.

And as you say, Dave, It'll be interesting to see two different takes on the same line.

Nice to here that we can get along as we need to take all comments in and suggestions in.
Should be good to see the layouts in the final stage of yours.
:D

Hi all

Well with Christmas over I can now do a little work on the layout. Thanks to Doug I now how all 3 viaducts, Ribblehead, Dent and Arten Gill. They just need cleaning and painting as I have now sorted the roadbed issue I had. Got the scenery to start carving up, so hope to post some pics in a few days.

Impressive! This promises to be quite some layout. I can feel the gales and horizontal rain already.
