While your operating this afternoon in Taunton, I was train spotting 

on Facebook.

Thanks for the kind comments - I just model what I see....and take lots of pictures. 

I had had some good feedback from the Taunton show in respect that we ran a lot of trains - for me, a must, because visitors pay a lot of money to see trains running, and while I’m quite happy to admire scenery and modelling skills,95% of the public want to see trains, and lots of them!

Oak Road has a very small target audience so we make sure we try and mix things up with Steam / Diesel, 80s / 90s and present day, because there’s only so many trees and HST you can look at in one day!! Ã°Å¸Ëœâ€šÃ°Å¸Ëœâ€šÃ°Å¸Ëœâ€šÃ°Å¸Ëœâ€šÃ°Å¸Ëœâ€š
You can never have enough HSTs

Happy New Year everyone. I’m slightly overwhelmed that I’ve been nominated in the BRMA / RMWeb awards category for Best Modeller! This was a complete surprise given the fact that a) I’m a newbie, b) my layout is half finished, c) I have no idea what I’m doing, and d) there’s no way in the world I’m in the same league as the late Allan Downes!

Just to be nominated is as good as winning for me!

I am impressed

Whilst I am in a similar position in as much as I am at the start and have a complex track bed to build, nearly complete but I am yet to run anything after 2 years except to test the dcc hardware and software (Z21) - fortunately it works and the  points work great on DCC concepts 8 point controllers.

Your road bridge and track looks amazing in picture 2 on yr first post

Good luck with the nomination - unfortunately I have already voted so cant give you my vote

Enjoy the next year of modelling

I will try to follow your progress with interest

my layout is Rowan Valley and I will be posting progress in the next few weeks
