Happy new year Si.  [toast]

I can't wait to see a pic of your workshop, 
be awesome indeed.


It has been 6 weeks yesterday since we moved in,
yes the first couple of weeks very stressfull indeed.
Now we are settled in our new place, a suburb away, still in Ipswich.

I have started to do some planning,
thinking of where to put the spiral, don't think it be where the station modules will be.
Actually a good spot be running off the bridge, modelling the Williams loop on the Feather river route.

I measured the length of the layout, it is just a few inches off the back yard garden,
as you will see just past the shed.

All goes well, I might get a chance to set up the bridge, will have to be on an angle sadly.
One good thing the ship will sit in a better spot, and hope to build a second ship.


A question:
Do I keep using the old Thread, or start a new Thread ?
Since Camdale HO scale garden railway has a new home.


Won't be doing anything till it starts to get cooler mid-March,
or unless there is a cool change and no rain.

Today was nice,
I decided to clean a Fire brigade Brass Helmet, took 3 hours, nice indeed.

Tuesday a storm predicted and rain, need it bad.

Hi Tony  :wave:


It looks like it's long enough ^^ for Cricket as well !  ;)


You REALLY absolutely DON'T WANT to see the MESS that's IN my SHED.  [whack]  :f:


You could just carry on with 'Camdale v2.0' here.  L:

What I could do, is add a couple of sentences to the 1st Post on Page-1 ...

... just to say, if people want to read about JUST the 'v2.0 Camdale' ...

... they should start HERE, on Page-45.


I think I would be inclined to do that ...  :old dude:

... after all, is is going to be mostly the SAME layout ...

... but obviously in a DIFFERENT garden, an interesting story to tell.  L:



But maybe YOU would like to start a NEW Thread, it's up to you to decide Tony.

Perhaps a brand NEW Thread IS a good idea ... Your decision.  :cool:



Brand NEW Thread & Brand NEW Shed ! ... That rhymes, could be a good song !  :P

Mmm .  .   .  ???



Lucky that you are MODULAR and portable !  :thumb:



:moose:



Si.

Late evening Si  :wave:

Yeah I will take your advice and stay on the old thread.
Can you change the thread name to V2 Camdale HO scale garden railway.


There be a bit of a difference with the length of the layout,
if I change where the spiral is to a different spot.

Thinking of shifting the spiral to off the bridge where the shed is,
that way I be able to modelling Williams Loop on the Feather River route.
 
Yes will do that plenty of room as the shed is 3m by 3m and spiral is 7 foot radius curve.
Not many pics of Williams loop, this was the only one I could find.

The main layout now be 44 feet in length,
will change when I put in a reverse loop, making it 54 feet,
again that will change, as I plan to have vertical staging yard run off the reverse loop,
plus loco work shop and refuelling and sand dock on a module.

Yeah that is why I went for a module garden railway,
can change the track design time, wont be having track ballasting.

Got some weeding to do,
first after that, will get the bridge out to see how I will fit in at the new length.
 
Not too hot so far, rain coming in tomorrow all week.

Hi Tony


If you Post your photos as 'Attachments' then ONLY Freerails Members can see them

You were using the FREE 'Members Gallery' method of photo Posting

Which is a WAY better solution to Posting pics

What happened ?


As a reminder

A full description of how to use the Freerails FREE 'Members Gallery' is here

'WINDOWS-10' + 'MAC O.S.' + 'GOOGLE CHROME' USERS & THE FREERAILS MEMBERS GALLERY

100x times better than dodgy PhotoBucket and all the other photo host cowboys

With the directions understood its simple quick and easy to upload ones photos


The new place youve moved to looks good

Should be OK for your project


:f:


Eddie

Hi Tony  :wave:



I added an extra bit to your 'Thread Sub-Title' lines of text ...

...  :old dude:   'Camdale' MKII Page-44 onwards   :old dude:



I think that says it all & is right slap bang under the main title ...

... so anyone looking isn't going to miss it easily.  :shocked:



It isn't really going to be that much of a shift in story either ...  :us:

... some people probably wouldn't even notice you've moved ...

... as they are probably looking at all the points & baseboards etc  :P



Anyway keep  C :cool: :cool: L  Tony & I hope you get some breeze & rain.  :boogie:



:moose:



Si.

There are a couple of places I have used shelving for workbenches. 
If you get the sturdier stuff it works out very well. 
Though sometimes you have to add a bit of additional bracing.

Hi Si.  :wave:

Many thanks for the change to the info so I can continue on.

Can now get stuck into drawing up the track plan,
as I measured the whole back yard.

Sadly had to cut back the main line length to 44 feet,
but the spiral will make that up has a 7 foot radius curve.

Rain coming in today, I am hoping not till late afternoon,
when I can get the bridge out and test where it will go with the spiral,
if not put the plan to paper.

Be raining all week, need the rain bad, hope it is heavier over the dams.

Hi Reg

Are you well into winter, any snow where you live?

I was going to buy the proper work bench,
in that stuff was too wide 3 feet and more costly,
but may end up buying it later. 

I was going to pull down the bench I made from my sons old desk,
need to extend  the concrete out past the shed doors,
in the afternoon good shade there from the shed.

Tony

We are having our first snow.  Some years we don't get any.
Really icy out this morning and will continue all day as the projected high is 32F.
My office is 40 miles away.  I am not going.  

I think I will take the opportunity to work on the SW7.  

A move may be in our future, though I am trying to figure out how to avoid it. 
Stairs in our house are unavoidable and my wife is having trouble with stairs. 
I am hoping I can figure out a way around that without moving.

My layout is not modular.

Reg
