An unusual variation on railway modelling.

Recommended Posts

I had a model railway layout as a child which I enjoyed greatly, but moved on to other things, and all the Marklin treasures passed down to my brothers and probably ended up in a jumble sale. I have struggled for many years to resist the temptation to start railway modelling again, only because I have so many other unfinished projects on the go, both modelling and real world.

After visiting The Great Electric Train Show at Gaydon a few years back my resolve failed, and I’ve started accumulating stuff for a planned, but as yet unstarted, layout.

In the mean time, the railway stuff has been consigned to the garage. I’ve got a set of working test rollers in there so I can enjoy my DDC sound equipped locos. I’ve no idea when, or even if, the layout will ever become a reality, but I enjoy playing with what I've got so far.

Like you I had a layout, still got it, but packed away, and probably not run it in 20 years, some excellent modelling there, is there a build log, and what scale are you doing?

Graeme, The layout I'm planning will be a 1/12th scale representation of a model engineering society club layout with 7 1/4" gauge and 5 1/2" gauge tracks. The 7 1/4" will use OO rolling stock at ground level, with the 5 1/2" using N gauge stock on a raised track. I've got loads of 1/12th scale stuff that will fit in - classic cars, bikes and tractors. The beauty of this type of layout is that it doesn't have to be period or location specific - I can run anything that I like.

 

The garage scenes are 1/6th scale with OO locos. There's no build log - it's all just spur of the moment stuff that's in there for quick photo.
