I think the shed thread is now defunct as today SWMBO helped me move the main board from the old Weybourne layout into the shed. I have fixed it to the wall bracing and fitted tempory legs for the moment while I decide on the layout at each end!! A quick wire up and all the points still work, the one remaining colour light works and 2 loco's have been tested!




Decisions, decisions !!
Will keep you posted must I have to earn some brownie points first!!

PS: I think a short description is in order:Sheringbourne is an amalgamation of 2 North Norfolk Railway stations. The loco works at Weybourne and the terminal at Sheringham. As it is also a preservation line it gives me a chance to run very different trains. Besides the daily timetable shared by both steam and diesels (& a DMU) they also have special weekends dedicated to either all steam or all diesels with visits from other preservation groups or some main line locos. Other plus's are that minimum weathering is needed as most of the rolling stock and loco's are kept as clean as possible and shorter than usual trains can be run.
So here is where the story begins.....

A real shame about the damage Ron. Apart from that, it looks like it has survived the move not too badly. First video also with sound ...... Superb.

Cheers

Toto

Hey Ron that`s good progress.

You`re a machine man!!!...

Is it possible to repair the platform damage with a new piece set into the area.??? or would it be easier to pull it out and build some new ones.???

I seem to be working with old or old and damaged stuff most of the time and it`s amazing what a bit of repair work can achieve.

Anyway you`re running trains...:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:......the rest will come when it comes.

Your shed interior looks great by the way.!!

Great progress Ron I saw the video go up earlier and had a look

Your just like me I think can't go to long with out some movement.

How is the telescope situation has it found a new home / shed, as well or is that the next project after the train shed is finished.

Hi Chris, I have built a small decking area at the side of the shed and fitted some exterior power so I can use the scope and still use a laptop in the 'warm' shed! Will doa photo when I can! 
CheersRon

Good to see everything is coming together Ron and your progress has been pretty rapid too.

Shame about the damage but if you were thinking of changing them anyway it's as Good a time as any to make new ones, will these be scratch built rather than from a kit. If so it does allow a bit more flexibility in design and allow such things as slight curves if needed.

I will follow closely when I can.

Jim

Looking at possible rail scenorio's think I'm going for a cassette type fiddle yard, more work I know but a good use of the limited space.







CheersRon

Hi Ron

If you go down the casstte route, while you still can get at the back wall, it may be worth installing some shelf brackets to store the cassettes not in use, allowing you to store complete trains out of the way.

for example

http://www.diy.com/departments/bq-twinslot-silver-shelving-upright-w26mm-l1600-mm/207648_BQ.prd?icamp=recs&rrec=true

with the shelf supports

http://www.diy.com/departments/bq-twinslot-matt-steel-shelf-brackets-d120mm/207640_BQ.prd

The brackets are available in variuos widths allowing single or multiple cassettes per shelf.

Paul

That is excellent progress Ron. You must be stoked to see and hear the loco running ! :thumbs:

The platforms are probably the least of worries at the moment. How lucky are you not to sustain some other costly damages that could have meant rebuilding baseboards, relaying track and rewiring the layout ?

The shed looks great and I like the shade of blue on the walls.

I will be looking forward to following the build of Sheringbourne into the New Year and beyond. Keep the great work coming.

Cheers, Gary.
