I have created this thread to separate the thread on Blackbridge Town from the Blackbridge Town Riverside layout as development will be proceeding at a separate pace. Here is the layout: The layout is 3000mm long by 400mm wide and consists of four baseboards, two each 1200mm long and two each 300mm long, all by 400mm wide. The two central baseboards are hinged and fold together in the middle with the join hidden by a removable road overbridge (concept borrowed from C J Freezers 'Minories' layout design). The two outer baseboards can either be connected or not as the layout has been planned to be errected with just the two central baseboards for basic homebased operating sessions. The thinking behind the layout design is that it can erected or taken down, once stock is removed, in 10 minutes maximum. The layout is set somewhere in the BR Western Region South Wales area and the period setting is late 1950s. The layout elements shown in the drawing are as follows: Open Track: Shown with standard Sleepers Hidden Track: Dark Grey Solid Sleepers Purple: Hidden Siding Rolling Stock Cassette Lime Green: Hidden Siding Engine Cassette Dark Green: Hidden Siding Sector Plate Light Green: Overhead Station Building Dark Purple: Footbridge Red: Signalbox Light Grey: Overbridge (removable to allow baseboards to fold) Light Pink: Goods Warehouse with Internal Dock Platform Blue: Dock Water Red Line: Baseboard Edges Orange Line: Backscene/Retaining Wall Purple Line: Station Platform and Goods Dock Train lengths are going to be very restricted (but have been tested) and passenger services will consist of a ex-GW Diesel Railcar, Autocoach and 14XX 0-4-2T or 64XX/74XX 0-6-0PT with goods services consisting of two wagons and a brake van hauled by a 13XX 0-6-0ST, 0-6-0 Diesel Shunter or Peckett Class E 0-4-0ST. In a way I suppose this can be classed as a 'Micro Layout'. More to come.
