Cheers. The sweeping one is of course on embankment/incline/bridge. Not sure on the enterance to the yard being via 2 1st radius curves though. The layouts called Shortfields and is based in the 1960s.
Not permanent...I tend to carry N guage about with me...so can sometimes be found with track out in Durham or Notts, but my OO track hasn't been out in a good proper layout for a few years (although I did have it out over Summer!) Just one of the problems with being a transient student!
I had a layout at one stage, but I couldn't take it with me when I moved home sadly. Hopefully I'll find the space to build another one at some stage, as it would be a shame not to put my models to further use.
I used to have one when I was a teenager. But when I went to University my parents put it in the damp garage, where the track rusted, and the board split. Then I went to work overseas and they chucked it away without my consent! :x :x
So at Christmas time i managed to buy a Hornby train set track part that the model loco and carriages had been removed from for £25. A bargain i think. Also it has a pair of cufflinks in it "Built 1960 Swindon" whatever that means. Any guesses?
I had a British branch line thing that turned out quite well, all the signalling worked (although any signalman would point out the mistakes, of which there were many) but I dismantled it to rebuild into something more authentic, and also to get my bachmann Ivatt 4 round it!
I also have 2 Swedish layouts, mimimum space things.
