Over a few days last week I was able to dismantle Ranelagh Bridge, luckily when I built it I screwed everything together which made coming apart fairly easy, I was able to reuse a lot of the timber to make up a new frame work. I’ve laid out some temporarily ply on top & I’m going reuse the signal Box, relay room, water tower and the first section of track work, it was a stroke of luck that I never permanently fixed this section down, I will add a bridge as scenic brake and reuse the signal gantry. I’d like to keep that west London feel and I will also have some of the tenements laser cut to form a back drop on this side, The other end will comprise a low relief engine shed very similar to my previous Canton layout. I’ve got another box of C&L on the way to finalise the track plan but so far I’ve set out coming off the point work to the far left will be the reception/ exit road, then the ash / disposal road, third will be the road to the diesel shed and road one of the main engine shed, The Forth will be s short siding for standby locos or a few wagons and lastly the remaining shed roads. The layout is only 2’ deep as this is my comfortable working distance. Behind the shed area I will make a low relief carriage shed to provide the back scene, again reminiscent of the Real Canton shed. Between the last Tenement and the carriage shed I think I may use some of the Kirtley models printed backscenes, He does some very nice Victorian Terrace houses. There will be a few points to make from C&L components and I’ve recovered all of the switch rails & V’s from RB. Whilst it’s not Ranelagh Bridge hopefully it will provide a nice back drop to my locomotives and the track layout should allow for some shunting manoeuvres. The upside to doing a generic layout like this is I can indulge in a few more “foreign” locos, I did tend to be quite strict with my self regarding stock for RB. The layout is 16’ long by 2’ wide.
