Throwback Thursday

Albion Yard

Here’s a blast from the past, seven years ago roughly. The link to today? well both locomotive and wagons are in use on test on the new layout, and Albion Yard?, well that’s in storage, not sure what to do with it at the moment, and I’ve been robbing one or two bits from it to try on the new project.

I know I’ve said it before, perhaps it is ‘Goodnight Vienna’ this time …

      Thanks Rick, this was when I was moving all the structures around and getting loads of different images from the same small area.

    Paul, you kindly let the Nottingham Area Group of the Scalefour Society to visit you and Albion Yard last year. We would like to invite you to come and give us a talk on building small layouts. We meet at the same venue as the Define exhibition and normally meet on a Thursday evening, but could make it a Saturday afternoon. How are you fixed? Date would be any time from October through to March next year.

    Hi, love the layout(s), been following progress for a long time, especially Albion Yard.

    Are you using Peco Code 75 points and C&L flexitrack? If so, what method are you using to join the two together?


    • bawdsey says:

      Hi Matt, the track on this one is the new Peco bullhead flexi track. Shelfie used a mix and I used the Peco code 75 rail joiners, and shimmed the C&L thin sleeper track with card at the joins.
