So what next?
My first Gn15 loco "Proteus" leaves Fox Gill with a goods train.
So, I have built my planned layout, what to do next?
I have several wagon kits in the drawer waiting to be built, but at the moment I have an idea to build a small rail car, if that is possible. I would like to do another small operating diorama to attach to the Maintenance Shed board which would then give it more operating potential, and I have a plan for this. Then, in the future I would love to build a series of Gn15 "modules", these are partly planned but need many trials an measurements to find the ideal size for such a system. It was easy in the small scale 009 days, but in 1:24 it is a different matter.
Here are one or two photos I took recently of "Longstone". The next exhibition for the layout will be at the Beds & Bucks Narrow Gauge Modellers Open Day on Sunday May 13th 2018 at Barton Le Clay Village Hall, Hexton Road, Barton, MK45 4JY.
