Linden Ford was built up using left over track from my son's layout and some realy second hand track that had been lifted from my previous layout. I wanted to build something to play with whilst I built my other layout, Kelly Bray. I tried to use as much second hand materials and left over scenic supplies from the box of tricks. Most structures on the layout was made from either card, styrene or scale timber.

Linden Ford has been covered in other forums, so I'll post some pics of the layout for now. If there are any questions regarding the small layout, fire away !

First up, a few black and whites. I took these pics before I was born in 1967... :giggle:





Ok now, some colour...







Oh, a train... !



and another...



One for Toto, a Class 22 on shunting duties...



An over-view of the yard at Linden Ford...



A close-up of the goods shed...



The Station Masters house..., which hides the point controls and isolating switches.



The SM's cat, 'Charlie' (named after our ginger !).



A photo from Gormo's collection at a recent exhibition..., hence the shuffling cards on the layout.



On Linden Ford's 2nd outing, Jack and I were quite surprised to receive this...



Both Jack and I were stoked to take out 'Best New Layout' at the Epping exhibition.

Cheers, Gary.

Yep, Gormo has a time machine in his shed. When I visited a couple of weeks ago, we actually went back in time, about an hour...!! :lol:

Actually, talking about time...

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, American scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 173 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone, in the weeks that followed, a British
Archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story published in the The Times :
"British archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their
ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the Americans".

One week later, the Australian authorities reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 30 feet in Western New South Wales, Jack O'Altrades, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely f*** all.
Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Australia had already gone wireless." :mrgreen:

Cheers, Gary.

Great layout, and congrats on the award you both deserve it.

And I laughed at the jokes, did have to explain it to the boss tho', but didsay that she'd understand it better if I were modelling in 0 gauge - I should get 12/10 for trying.

Thanks for the kind words.

As for O gauge, you could always let the boss know that your struggling with seeing things clearly in OO, and that doubling the size would be the way to go ! :mrgreen:

Cheers, Gary.

ps. The boss isn't standing behind you reading this is she...?? :eek:

No... not behind me,  but I may need to move up to G scale, when she pokes one of my eyes out ;)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Paul
