I've looked up for a while now, Other Whitby or surrounding area layouts. Ive noted not alot have finished or have completely disappeared of RM web / other model forums 

 

Only one I would say is worth seeing right now is Whitby West Cliff on the circuit.

 

So Ive decided to start my little page of 'Whitby Town', Unlike most layouts on RMweb you wont be having weekly updates, every update will most like take about 2-3 months maybe even more. ( I really just want to take my time )

 

So some basic identity about the layout :-

 

Most of buildings have been built all ready, apart from one RTR building. ( Commission Based / Station is last one to be completed most likely 2018 ) 

 

Track will be Bullhead rail - OO 

 

Working Signals

 

Full DCC operation ( with help from DCC Concepts )

 

( Unsure at present weather layout will be circuit based or built into a very large shed ) - TBD

 

At present everything Ive got to start is in storage, so when the building of board's start their should be very little waiting time for updates.

 

Ive added a few photos of buildings finished so far, To me they are of very good quality scratch built from photos from a collection Ive been adding to for the past 1/2 years of 250+ photos.

 

The aim of the layout is to be able view it from station square all the way to prospect hill junction. ( Station > Engine Shed / Goods Shed > Turntable > Coach Sidings > Bog-hall Box / Level crossing > Prospect Hill. )

 

The era im going for is 50's/60's Steam & Diesel, So i can run Standard 4 Tanks / L1s / Fairburn Tanks etc, with Class 24's / 25's & 37's & a range of 101 / 108 DMU's.

 

If I've missed anything im sure I can update.

 

Thank you

 

Anthony.

Lovely buildings being a fan of Heartbeat the TV series Whitby often pops in, I really like the idea of seeing this build, and do not worry about updates, as and when just give us lots of pictures, and back story 🙂

Love the buildings you have done so far, any pictures showing them building up would be gratefully received as well, love the weathering 🙂

2-3 months? Sounds like a little xmas present booked LOL.

Nice subtlety in ther weathering - 

"aging but looked after a wee bit" comes to mind - which is the state of the real thing in most places rather than just down-and-dirty.

Looking foirward to more.

Thank you, the next lot of buildings I do I will take photos of the build projects

and I say 2-3 months so if something doesn't  happen then its not a disappointment, but next update will be some signals ... 😃

In the 50's - 60's I would of looked like this hopefully, but the summary is prefect.

Looking very neat. I wondered which materials you used for your scratch built buildings?  Also signaling components?

Sorry for my late reply, Buildings are mixture of Wills / Slaters / 3D printing roof / Thick Plastic Card - Then painted & Weathered

Signals are made from MSE parts ? Wizard models etc then painted etc

One building is RTR which is the engine shed which is made by Bachmann for TMC.

Thanks for that. I now have the Wizard Models catalogue before me and am pleased to see it should be relatively easy to identify the components I will need for GWR signals. In fact I was on the phone to Wizard only a few minutes ago, but this was for ordering more coach components.

Normally all I do is send a photo of signals I'm having made and I get email reply with items / ID codes of bits needed to order.

I should have the rest of the platform 2 & 3 junction signal and platform 4 single pole done by the end of the year hopefully. ( As shown in the below photo )

That is very helpful information, so I will do that when the time comes to build signals. If fact, with Ruabon, building signals could turn out to be a full-time occupation. ðŸ˜„

I personally couldn't do it, but if you can find a good builder they can do very good job.

These are all ready for mounting / motors when the time comes.
