    Hi all, new to this forum but thought I'd post a few pics of my entry. It's based around the Docks in Bristol c1907 where the Midland had a few goods depots. Couldn't think of a place-name name so have decided to keep it as Midland in Bristol. Kind of does what it says on he tin I suppose. Pic below of the track plan, board is built and I'm in the process of mocking up buildings to get proportions right. More pics to follow...

    Welcome, Tricky.

    Plenty to look at; should make for interesting operation too.

    Good luck!

    Thanks jonte. Been quite busy today, finished the baseboard, made the backscene and painted white for now. Mock-ups of the main structures under way. Of concern is the middle section which looks too bare and plus I need to devise a clever way of hiding the baseboard edge! Not quite happy with it all yet but that's all part of the process...!

    Are you still building the layout, if so any chance of an update and some photos?

    I believe he is, although more seems to be documented in another place - Midland in Bristol - 7mm+ modelling
