Layout - green house Aalsmeer

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

This is looking really fantastic - I hope I can get somewhere near this standard! A set of photos recapping the whole layout is long overdue I think!

We're gonna need a little rolling stock...and a lot of luck!

I used to have a project link here until the thread was deleted... :(

Hi Erik - there's some really impressive scenic there. Lots of little touches that raise the quality, like the little pile of tiles. Beautiful work.

I kept feeling that there was an unbalance in my layout, the right side was a little empty...now i've solved this and applied a dirty workbench for the Oorgidee drivers:

Hi Erik, Wow what fantastic work!

I love the eye for colour, texture and detail you have. The workbench is stunning.
Little old lines to somewhere.

Had to do something to get the switches turning...well they move :D

This is the wheel spoke method, simply simple and effective at low cost!

I must agree.
It is really nice to see the other side of the baseboard and how other people do the mechanical operation of their layouts.
Thanks for posting.
( By the way, how did you do the animation ? )

Thanks Guys!

@Adrian, just take two photo's and with the help of software combine them to an animated gif.

The spoke wheel should be very reliable, so that a test worth in Utrecht at OnTraxs. The hardest part was to make the movement bend > 90 degrees (the switch board is on the left side of the layout and me too)

The Hawe looks great. Is it a Sidelines kit or scratch built? Good luck at the show.

Hi Simon,

The HaWe is (of course :D ) scratch built, the power unit is a long rider from Chris Gibbon, a 40 mm long wheelbase, gear ratio 48:1.

Even Hermann the Hamster took a chance to take a ride over the layout and to meet Eric.

An incredible railroad museum at Utrecht / NL and a great model exibition.
Almost too much to see for a single day.

Have Fun
