Evening all. Some here may frequent the Sheep Chronicles, a thread teetering on the very brink of chaos where I waffle on in order to record the occasional progress of my modest 4mm meanderings. I've decided to dip a hoof into the murky waters of 7mm modelling. This has been prompted by the release of various RTR locos and stock as of late. I'm not, nor profess to be, a kit builder, coming from the world of 4mm RTR. So please don't expect much etched brass. I'll leave that to the clever people who can and do such things so very well. That said I'm hoping to pick up new skills and build my own track, some rolling stock and maybe the odd building as I bumble along. Credit is due to Alan, Geoff, Grahame H and Pencarrot of this fine parish for the encouragement and advice thus far. The release of the Dapol 14xx was the final kick up the bunker needed and an example has been acquired.( with another to follow but do not tell the Memsahib) What I plan is not much more than a diorama at first to get a bit of a feel for things 7mm. Nothing fancy you understand. Inspiration is being drawn from the Culm Valley Light Railway and Nanstallon Halt which may indicate the look and feel I'm after. It will be small. How small I'm not too sure at present.......but it certainly won't be large. Period is the mid 1950s. Most likely goods only. I anticipate a bit of a slow start so bear with me. As you'd expect, matters will be littered with Ovine references. The branch is the Lamb Valley Light Railway. Slightly run down, weedy track and faded paint..The terminus is at Baacombe which is also home to a middle sized dairy. The other intermediate stations are at Hoofculme and Ewestock. I shall be modelling Lambs Leap, a small halt serving an even smaller hamlet..A short siding administers to the needs of the local coal merchant with the odd wagon of coal coming in and the occasional load of seasonal farm produce from surrounding farms going out. I hope to generate a general damp, misty, Autumnal "feel to it all. What could possibly go wrong........? Rob.
