Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Hello world!

Welcome to my new blog. You may have come here via my previous blog- Yeoton Wharf in which I detailed the building of a 3mm scale mixed gauge layout which is now on the exhibition circuit and featured in the October 2012 Railway Modeller.

I have started this blog to describe and share other modelling projects that I get involved in. A recent move of house has given me a dedicated modelling room about 19′ x 10′ in which I already have a good sized work bench and my previous exhibition layout. This is Bagborough West, a 3mm scale 7′ Broad Gauge model. I have room for building a 3mm scale, 14.2mm gauge layout as well. This is presently being designed and hopefully will include a continuous run.

Other projects include a cottage I am modelling for Pendon Museum, -more about that later- , a traction engine I have been building on and off for at least 10 years and some work for a layout being built at my local club.

I cannot promise to post that regularly but please come back at times to see what is going on. All comments gratefully received !!
