    They are made of three layers. Front, back and then the third layer is the support timber frame on the inside.

    I’ve modelled 2 with the small access doors open, one for the large shed and one on the smaller.

    But, which way do folk thing the doors should hang? Swinging inside or swinging outwards?

    Outwards.

    In case of fire, those doors were supposed to open outwards, I thought?

    That’s an interesting thought.
    Looks like they will be opening outwards then! Ta

    That's an easy one Andy... which way does your front door swing open and why ? It might have something to do with the weather and not letting rainwater seep in rotting the frames out. :scratchchin: Also if the door swings outwards when mounted on another opening door itself then there is a real chance of being smacked in the face if the small door blew open. Fire doors open outwards with a quick release mechanism because they are an exit port protecting occupants from being trapped inside, these engine shed doors are access entries for staff to get in easily as the main larger engine door will be bolted from the inside.

    thanks Paul.

    I was referring to the hanging of the large doors but your point is still a good one.
    I also guess it’s like a garage door (excluding up and over) if there is something inside, you would need clearance, open them outwards and more room. With the other exception of folding doors. :lol:

    Yes the large engine doors would always open outwards, this maximises internal standing space and with them opened outwards the doors act as a wind baffle to the inside... if you build it this way then don't forget the external wooden harness structure which holds the doors stable when open... a drop bolt into the ground just isn't sufficient, doors need protecting against wind damage.:thumbs:

    Now that’s an idea. !!

    yes. I like that. Need to see if I can find some photos.
    Although, if your talking about the drop bolt when open, it’s sufficed at Cheddleton for 25+ years. Mind, they can shift about abit in the wind!

    yes, I may have a look at adding something for that Paul. Good shout!

    Hmm a couple those doors at Chedd are a bit warped if I remember correctly but then they are not exposed to loco's entering and leaving constantly so if they flap around in the wind it isn't quite the same. Take a look at some of the old pictures of Stoke Long Shed and Alsager in NSR days when they had roofs, you will see huge timber frameworks fixed to the entrance walls which the doors would fasten into, but then I'm not sure this fitment reigned long and of course not all sheds had them anyway, so you could omit this feature. :thumbs:

    Slow progress (didn’t do any work last night as was 3D work designing tunnel name boards) but Wednesday evening saw the main two track shed built. It’s 3 parts which I’ve glued as one.

    I now really need to start work on the walls being secured before I can do much more.
    I’ve fitted the two power distribution boxes that appear on the walls with their conduit and I’ve looked at the drain pipes. Looked at being the word... I may still do the black cocktail sticks again here.

    it’s early night shifts the next two days and then nights, so nothing for the next 4 days realistically.

    So then I decided as it’s hissing it down outside, wife’s in bed on her night shifts, I’d put the radio on and get the kit out.

    so I’ve glued the roof trusses in on the main roof to give it its shape, so I can then do the roof vents.

    currently drying with the clothes pegs ensuring the roof stays in contact with the trusses.

    meanwhile the rest of the kit remains “ikea flat packed” style.:avatar:

    The “cork” is one of those LED bottle lights.. just trying what it may look like. I can see me cutting it up, and attaching two metal rods down the trusses to hang each light on. The rods can act as the + and - strips.

    Mark it really is no secret so I will tell all as they say :avatar:. The big drawback with Gauge O is space and / or suitable accommodation to house a layout containing the type of scenery I enjoy, garden railways are brilliant in their own way but focus on running trains which isn't really what I'm about. So what am I about... well firstly as a North Stafford man its the Knotty ever time and secondly as an artist maker (art school trained but hobbyist) my interest attempts to take historical photographs and personal memories developing them into three dimensional sculptural models so we can catch a glimpse and a feel for how something was.

    So with the help of Mr S who designs my bespoke "railway furniture" on commission I'm enbarking on making a series of interlocking scenic diorama segments with support legs, each segment takes influences from a photograph of the real thing so each segment when joined together forms one long run being a representative series of snapshots with Birchall Tunnel being the first one made. I have the general arrangement plans for a very long girder bridge which straddles a fast flowing river with rapids and I'm also actively pursuing drawing up plans in 7mm scale for Leek Passenger station... I'll post a few pictures up of this building on a new thread. The signal box which used to be at Blythe Bridge and level crossing will also be another scene and there will also be a couple of basic scenery boards with just countryside scenics to span the length out. All this is portable and can be assembled for play on sunny weekends in my garden, ultimately I'm working towards eight boards of four feet in length giving about thirty feet running plus storage cassettes either end. The diorama will be DCC and stored away on my vintage bus for protection.
