P4 shunting layout

I tend to sway between building 1/350th scale warships and model railways. For the last 12 months I've been working on a small (4' * 20") layout in P4 as a bit of a practice for hand building track. Here are a few pics, all the buildings are scratch built and all the locos have been detailed, weathered and converted to 18.83mm gauge track:

Thanks for that, the 56 is the old Mainline version and is a non runner although it has received a set of P4 wheels so it can be towed or used in double heading. Still need to add the sand pipes and all the bufferbeam details.

Very nice - P4 is some commitment !!

Once thought about it, but decided to stay 16.5

Why would I want scale track when everything else

I did was .... errrr ... slightly inaccurate !

Thanks for the comments, they are very much appreciated and apologies for the delay in replying, I've been otherwise engaged for a few weeks.

Roomey - I saw Farkham last year, very nice work. As for this layout, I have an open invitation to exhibit at Scalefour North once it is finished but no other plans at the minute.

Here's a couple more photos:
