Yep I've got it on my green one, it doesn't do anything on mine though...just sits there....
Been a while since i last took some shots of the layout.
I'm coming round to depicting mine on the same style as yours! Looks good!
Nice pictures guys and very impressive scenes but...can I make a comment, in and around sheds, unless track had recently been relaid you would either only see the tops of the sleepers if in fact they were visible at all. They would all be covered in clinker and ash, you go round any working shed today.
But my layout has that in the two shed roads... and has normal sleepers on the tracks outside the shed area, as locos wouldnt dispose of their ash there....
I see what you mean Kieran but in my picture that is not particularly a place where fires are cleared out but the ballast has long since gone. In fact it would be a real nuisance if there was ballast as it would make moving around the locos a pain, having to walk on an uneven surface.
Lovely streaks there Kieran =D>
A couple more from me:
Westwood Junction roundhouse 2008 8)
Merchant Navy No. 35028 Clan Line and LSWR M7 No. 252 in the running shed at Westwood Junction.
I've always liked that shot of the roundhouse =D>
Thought i may aswell update the thread with some of the pics ive been taking from my new camera.
Top Link comes to Westwood Junction :smt001
From L-R: 60029 Woodcock (before transformation into 60019 Bittern for a modern image club layout), 4468 Mallard and 4482 Golden Eagle.
Quite amazing how big a difference the valancing sheets on the earlier A4's make to the models looks, i'd swear 60029 was a slimmer beast altogether.
Yes, it is quite a change compared with the older tooling.
Anyway, I've updated the 3 A4 picture with one taken today in better light conditions and taken a few more
70008 and 60029 inside the running shed at Westwood Junction, with 75027 in the adjacent building.
Line up outside the running shed now that I have finished laying track in it.
Not bad Dan - But you could make it look a bit grimier? Black, with a bit of lighting Plus the ballast in place with dirty track? All the same its fab! just never seen a charlie lined up with a couple of A4's unless you count the anniversary?
I would point out that all photo's at the present time show a 'work in progress' layout. The sheds will have a modicum of grime added, but as they are new build preservation structures they need to look reasonably clean! I have ballast ready for laying and I also need to paint the rails with rust colour. I am also looking at the possibility of adding lighting towers.
Anyway, here is the converted 60019 Bittern showing her in preserved form:
I need to add the air brake hoses at front and rear plus I'm not too sure whether there are any OHL stickers in the cab area (including tender footplate). I also want to add two smoke generators and a South West Digital sound chip and speaker.
Just a few snaps of 2 of my locos that have different liveries.
Kieran, those liveries are stunning!........love the first two pics!, nice one!
Christmas brought along two new additions to the layout. Including a weathered Bachmann Pannier from a good friend and a limited edition Clacton On Sea wagon.
The Small Prairie was brought out to keep the Pannier company!
For the first time in two years (yes it's been that long!) i took the layout off the wall, allowing me to get a new angle.
Later this year i will try to take the layout outside to get some natural lights on the model, i hope the results will be pleasing!
Just some pics of a layout i have been working on with a friend of mine. Its not shed scenes but i thought i would post them.
Looks good, but could you upload them to a much smaller size please? :smt002
WOW WHAT GREAT PICTURES SHOW US SOME MORE!!!!!!!1ONE
P.S. COULD YOU POST THEM A BIT BIGGER PLEASE, MY EYESIGHT ISN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE
