Welcome Joey; suggest that you take a look here:

In particular, although shorter, this might be a good starting point - far RH corner of Gallery Menu - Starter Layout.

Hello Joey,

Welcome to the Gnatterbox.

The layout you have posted photos of is called Oak End Farm, by Jack Clarke. It is Gn9 (9mm track to represent 7¼" gauge). This layout was shown at the Sussex Downs 009 Group Open Day at Haywards Heath last Saturday 16 March.

That's strange, just noticed that my postings "scoreboard" has gone down from 250 or so to 65 since I last looked at it!

Hello Joey,

Oak End farm is my layout, the first time I have modelled in GNine. it measures 39" by 19".
I am a little bit worried these photos have been posted as they have a copyright on them. Having said that they can be seen on the Uckfield model railway club website. Link as follows :-

http://www.uckfieldmrc.co.uk/exhibit12/oakendfarm.html

I have no photos of my own of the layout as yet but I intend to describe it fully at a later date.

Yes, Joey, sadly, you do have to delete those photos of Oak End Farm -- they are not yours to post, being Copyrighted and all. For more detail, see the one sticky I've posted in "Welcome Aboard" re: Copyright.

Jack; Very nice layout!

MickT, I'll PM you ...

Jeff,

Thanks for clearing that up and thanks for your kind words.
Is it okay to post a link to a site with photos on without copyright permission?

Regards
Jack

Jack, URL links to websites with images are fine, and if one knows the photographer and asks their permisson, one can then post the images proper.

What Joey has done is to download the images from some website, then upload them to "myGn15" and post them here -- definitively a no-no in terms of Copyright.

It's a real PITA at times, but there is a growing trend for folks to actually sue websites for infringement, and win monetary damages. Here in the States it is a little harder, but I understand the UK has recently enacted a format to streamline the process in favor of those who sue for damages.

8ft by 2ft is a pretty fair amount of landscape in Gn15, even On30, all manner of things are possible.
Go for it :D
Pretty fair sized barn (barn, yes?) there on Oak End; easy to forget how large buildings become, and fast, in this scale.

Looking at your plan, I reckon you'll have room for both.

G'day Joey,
Welcome to the Gnut house.
Been looking at your proposed layout plan and as you asked for some help .... well here goes.

Image
I have taken the liberty of modifying your track plan a little.
There is one extra point but I think it might be a bit easier to work.

I noticed that in your original plan all the points pointed in the same direction.
This seemed to me to produce a layout that would be very difficult to work as you could not shunt any wagons into any of the sidings if the train came from the right hand fiddle yard (unless you had a second loco.)
So I have put a passing loop in to allow the loco to change ends. This will also allow two trains to pass each other if you require to do so.

Also in the engine shed area all the points connected to the main line.
I have kept two points off the main line so that you can move the locos around a bit without blocking the the main line.

I trust that you will take this as some constructive advice which I hope makes some sort of sense.

Looking forward to see what your finally plan turns out to be.

Have a good day.
Adrian Hoad

the line that comes round the corner is the scrap yard where dead engines
are put
yes thanks for that it is far better but might just have to change the yard to the shed and shed to the yard because i want a building over it with bench in
it
