Which is what I call my layout of Cheddar, to distinguish it from Simon Challis' superb SDJR P4 layout. Simon's is a P4 might have been branch line, whereas mine is a straight representation of the former GWR station on the Yatton to Witham branch via Wells. This layout was started a few years ago now and was planned to be my magnum opus. At 32ft long it's certainly big enough. Progress to date has been recorded on RMWeb, so I'm not going to repeat myself here other than a few basics. It's P4, 22ft scenic and two 5ft turntable fiddle yards set anywhere between 1948 and 1963. The length is a bit of an issue as I can't put more than half pf it up at any one time. Baseboards are a mixture of 6mm ply framing, 12mm ply track base and 15mm extruded polystyrene foam everywhere else. Track is ply sleepers and plastic chairs. Barring the two extreme ends it's all down, wired and working. Control is DC with a separate lever frame for points and signals, though the layout is wired for eventual conversion to DCC. Presently I'm working my way along the line doing the first fix of ballast, scenery etc. None of the buildings exist other than in simple mock ups, though I'm presently working my way through the goods shed and train shed with a view of getting them laser cut. For those who don't know, Cheddar had a rather grand overall shed which scales out at just over 2 feet in 4mm. Once the first fix is done it'll be treated to general washes and wafts of airbrushes to bed everything, tone it down and apply a consistency across the palette. Most recently I've been putting in the platform edge faces to get an idea of where everything needs to fit. Anyway, enough prattling. Here are some photos.
