Nicks workshop mutterings

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

Eggesford requiem

Well I have struggled to get the relain trackwork to run smoothly and the scenery really has had it after 30+ years. The track work is a problem with going from 12mm to 14.2 but still using the original radii so parts end up rather tight.

So, in the end I have lifted as much track as I can, saved the buildings and other fixtures and the rest now resides in the local recycling centre!

I can now get in my model room with ease without having to duck under the layout which was becoming very irksome especially with a bad back! I am now designing a new permanent layout based on Brampton on the Exe Valley line in Devon This will go down one side of the room leaving the other side for Lananta Quay and 50×50 Shades of Grey.

More to come as I progress……..
