    If I had the time, energy, space and skills required, I'd like to do a London tram layout.

    This is a pretty good one based in post-war South London (composite of various real locations)

    That's cool. I think I've seen one with underground stations as I think they had near Hyde park? I may have imagined that though!

    I'm not aware of one as such - and trams didn't get allowed anywhere near Hyde Park, but wouldn't surprise me.

    The Leslie Green tube stations - this sort of thing -

    [​IMG]

    were fairly well spread around London (or at least as well spread around London as the tube network was at that time - think the furthest south would be Elephant & Castle)

    If you are modelling Kent in the (glorious) Southern era , you need to have at least one South Wales private owner wagon in your developing freight consist ...there was a good flow of best (arsenic free) anthracite from my homeland to Paddock Wood and many Kent wayside stations for hop drying , I suggest an Amalgamated Anthracite Collieries wagon , or any of the OO gauge ones on offer from normal sources.

    This would of course,give you bonus points from the Ed .....

    It's been shamefully gathering dust on a shelf for over 10 years, but here's my N Gauge GWR Prairie tank.

    Rather than my usual dithering..I just got on and cut some ply. Starting to look at bit closer to where the various bits need to be for the plan :cool:

    OK, so I have a slight confession. The layout isn't going to just be this nice little branch line. It is .. but well, also... It's going to have hidden inclines and storage for trains. I've got all the Gubbins more or less for PC control. I've made a 'proof of concept' frame work. Its on fucking stilts!!! Ha ha I've been laughing all day about it! Basically trains disappear off scene in 2 places, Descend under the layout, which is open frame and raised so i can get to all the track. The scenery will have a raised front frame that lets you see under to the hidden lines. Once all the front scene is filled you wont see any of the hidden lines. But you will be able too if you duck down! The track level ends up at eye level sitting down as trains go round will be immersive!! Im such a fucking saddo lol
