Hi all

I’m planning another micro diorama build.
This will involve the same type of oak plinth I have used on previous builds.

The diorama will be themed around a distillery yard.
The plinth work surface is 9cms x 7cms.

My loco of choice will be the new tooled 'Ruston & Hornsby' loco by Hornby.
These little locos were prevalent within the distillery industry.

More to follow with pictures...

The loco is 54mm, the Conflat that comes with it is 81mm

Did you mix up cms and inches maybe?

I think Kevin is just going to use the loco ...  L:

... I bet he's got an idea for the 'flat' on another diorama !  :cool:





NICE !  :pimp: 

My favourite green & I've always had a soft spot for 'wasp stripes'.  :)


MILK ONLY ?  :f:  ;)  [toast]





235511 left Boultham Works on 24 August 1945,
ordered by Express Dairy Co. Ltd for shunting their bottling plant in Cricklewood,
the locomotive remaining there until 1954.

235511 was then transferred to Express Dairy's bottling plant at South Morden,
where it worked until the spring of 1972,
being replaced by a Hunslet Yardmaster 0-4-0.

In July 1972 235511 was sold to Esmond Lewis-Evans,
and moved to Ashford, at the South Eastern Steam Centre.

:old dude:

Sounds like they were well made & lasted a while.  :thumb:

I'm looking forward to seeing another of your cunning plans Kevin !  :P

I've figured it out BTW ...  :brill:

... Kevin's making a modular layout & is gonna join them all together !  :shocked:


3  1/2"  x  2  3/4" ... Now yer talkin'  :mex:

The concept alone has gotta be worth an advance of ...  ;)

Hi Helmut

You are correct about the sizes,

I plan to only use the loco on my micro diorama.

Hi Si.

Thanks for your kind words and comments.

It’s a great idea about joining all the dioramas together.


I plan to only use the loco on this diorama,

but I’m planning a bit bigger diorama in the future,

with a running loco and wagon.

 :2t:

Hi

Work started on the diorama a couple of days ago when the plinth arrived.

The stone wall sections have been built, painted and weathered.
Once this was complete I fixed them in place.

The OO gauge track has had its web removed, as it makes the track look more authentic.
The rails have been rusted, but I need to add sleeper grime to the sleepers tomorrow.

But for now a progress picture..

Hi Kevin  :wave:


OK ... This is just a typical  :dope:  question, which I'm sure I'm known for.  ;)


What track are you using Kevin ?  ??? 

I assume it's the same, for all your dioramas ?  ???

Who cares ? ... There's only 7cm of it, I hear from the back of the class.  :old dude:

I do !  :P


I have a few OO track types here myself, like 'Hornby' & one of the many 'PECO' types ...

... but am not a OOer, so couldn't figure out what it is that easily.  L:


:java::moose: :dt:
