Hi All. Most of you are familiar with our previous layouts, so I wont bother to post them here, unless requested. For people not familiar, three of us in West Wales are modelling stations from the old Whitland and Cardigan Railway. We have already built and exhibited Cardigan, Kilgerran and Boncath in 3mm, Login in 00, and the latest project is Crymych (Paddington called it Crymmych Arms - and Kilgerran instead of Cilgerran). We chose to do Crymych in N gauge so that it would be more manageable for transportation, and also to enable a tail-chaser instead of end-to-end, as the previous ones are. Pictured below is an early photograph of the station: The track plan, as published in MC Prices book 'The Whitland & Cardigan Railway' : And our paper plan, as close to scale as possible. I made up three boards in the time honoured fashion from 9mm ply and 19 x 45 framing. Glued, screwed and varnished. Track being laid by the gandy dancers at one of our weekly get togethers Final picture for this post is of the completed track laying, prior to point operations being installed and ballasting: Track work is a bit of a mixture, with Peco points, Italian Flexy track, Peco setrack curves, and some pieces of 009... whatever we had available really. Our modelling philosophy is to only spend when we really have to, as Merlot/Syrah/Granache take priority! More details in the next post. ATB Shaun.
