View attachment 36830 View attachment 36831 In earlier postings about a Great Eastern E22(J65) I'm building in gauge 3, I included some photos of my (micro) layout. Well, the E22 and another loco had problems running through the turnouts on that layout, so it has been replaced by a similar ,mirror image, layout using Cliff Barker's track. The new layout is portable, as my aspiration is to take it to exhibitions. As before the scenic area is 2.1m by 60cm, the fiddle yard 1.9m, but it will now allow a 0-6-0 tender loco or a class 25 diesel to run around a train. There is less track, but I've been able to find space for a wagon turntable giving access to a wharf with buildings and track laid in granite setts. My modelling tastes are varied so there are two interchangeable platforms; one 1 foot above rail level, for early railways or light railways such as the Thaxted branch, the other standard height for my main interest GER 1911, or more modern stuff. for the latter I'll probably just cover the wagon turntable with a lorry. The 08 shunter was also the subject of an early posting, the photos show it with a fresh coat of paint by Liz Marsden of Cromford Designs. It still needs details added. The locos will all be electric RC so there is no power to the track. I will add further posts, as things progress.
