Don't feel bad about being a not very fast modeler.

I have LOTS of unfinished stuff clogging shelf and workbench space....
and I am pretty sure that I have good company!

Sometimes I just gather links for the future layout here.

Natalie Porter, posted this on a facebook group,
to show how she does stairs for her buildings.

This is so simple it's just genius.
She just makes a jig out of foam core.

A messy work bench? been there, doing that now.

The stair idea is great, I can make use of that.

Sometimes it's almost as if all you gotta do is build your model,
and then an actual loco will appear in some photo collection to that matches it.

hee hee hee


I found this video which shows what we normally don't show on our layouts.

Hi TGB,

Dunno about that.

Go too far beyond this sign then the lights go out.





But yeah, its not a "normal" layout  ;) :P

Rumour has it ...
... that the other end of that tunnel ^^ comes up in WALES !  :old dude:


:shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:


If they were a bit short of coal in the valleys that day ...  :f:

... they'd just push a few car loads through from Down Under.  :)



If they came up a bit short down in Aus. one day ...  :f:

... the Welsh would return the empties, filled up with coal again.  :cool:


;)


- - - - - - -


The deseisel looks  C :cool: :cool: L ... 

... I'm not convinced about the engineers matching corporate-colour shirts though.  :shocked:


???


Perhaps a Buck $1 on a blue can of  'Levis'(TM)  colour paint might come in handy ?  L:



:mex:



Si.

Si, I have thought about changing the colors,
but that would require buying more paint!

------

Oztrainz, In my part of the world, a colliery is a kind of shepherd dog.  ;)
As in that a really nice Border Colliery you have there. 

-------

I've been pondering a layout for some time.

When I was a kid, my first N scale layout,
(this is after the usual ovals of HO scale on the floor kind of layouts)
was basically this layout here:





I figure I will just do a basic starter in a space of about 34 inches x 44 inches,
and then squeeze in as much hand crafted, kit bashed and scratch built crap as I can.

And then if for some reason I do something completely wrong on it,
I can always just throw it in the trash, like so many other layouts I've made.

Starting small is a great way of having something up and running in a short time. 
It gives you a chance to do some experimenting. 

Even John Allen's G&D started small.


I would suggest adding a couple of switches for future expansion. 
The loop will always be handy for testing out equipment.

As I remember, Mr. Allen's first layout was a 4 by 6 footer,
and he incorporated it into the G & D.
Something to think about...

Woodie
