Nurton Hall- O9

Postby Si » Sun Jan 27, 2013 12:20 pm

Few pics on what was meant to be a GN15 APA but somehow got side tracked into an O9 estate railway....

Started on this one just before Christmas so has taken a month so far - which I'm really pleased with! Still adding detail as we speak.

Looking good Si. The loco reminds of Lord Belborough's. If you remember he owns Winkstead Hall, Chigley's stately home... :wink:

cheers,

Hello Si, love the layout and the buildings.
How long and wide is it? I have just built a building like yours which I found on a puzzle. It shows a back alley between two rows of farm buildings, just asking to be modelled!!

The main board is 4ft long by 6 and a bit inches wide. There is also a little fiddle yard that bolts onto the end, adding about 6 inches to the overall length.

I found it a nice manageable size, hence being able to finish it in such a short time (well short for me anyway).

The two half timbered barns have been recycled from previous layouts, and the little ticket office is just a cardboard box with coffee stirrers stuck to it.

The layout is located between Wolverhampton and Bridgnorth, on the Shrops/Staffs boarder - hence all of the red sandstone.

Apologies for the cross-post, but as I've gone to the trouble of uploading the newest photos I thought that those who don't use 'the other place' might like to have a look at the final* state of affairs (*in so much as they ever get finished).

Great set of photos Si. 8)
Still can't get my head around that the gauge is 9mm, looks wider. How wide is the flat bed wagon?
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

Weeelllll......there in lies the thing. Originally I was building the stock for a 18" gauger railway, thus it is all a bit wide for a typical Haywood inspired estate railway.

Most of the wagons are just shy of 3cm wide. Which, of course, in 7mm equals about 4ft. I would have followed the rule of 3*track gauge, thus for a 15" railway the max ought to be 3ft 9inches. So we are about 3 or 4 inches over. But at 7mm scale that's only a couple of mm, thus hopefully I won't be too heavily castigated for my indiscretion :lol:

I really like that Si, it looks very realistic, lots of little details. 8)
An excellent variety of motive power and rolling stock as well.
