Hi all,
Well now that Haston has departed the urge to start another one is back...
This time it will be a Scottish layout in the mid to late 70's
I've order a 6 x 1 foot base board from MRS and it should be here in the next couple of weeks

If I could work out how to upload a photo I'd share the trackplan with you all

One question does any know where I can find colour photos of molasses tank wagons used in Scotland in the 70's ?

BTW the track plan can be seen at https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/webUpload?uname=Hagley.boy&aid=5619563100313209361

Thanks

Chris

Chris...the link brings me to:

"Oops... there's nothing to see here. Either you do not have access to these photos, or they don't exist at this web address. Please contact the owner directly to gain access.

Clicking on the "View Chris Gilbert's Gallery" button brings us to a distorted pic of you.[/url]

Very interesting plan Chris - love the way one platform track is 'lifted'...
Is it Freight-only, or a classic "McRat & two Mk1s" passenger service too..?

It will be freight branch with a Class 20, 25, 26 and 08 serving a Whiskey distillery
Inbound goods are grain, molasses, coal, oil
Outbound is Whiskey...

I'm going to run it in a similar way to a US layout with car cards !!!

Nit picking here Chris. Twisted Evil

With a McRat in the line up of motive power I am assuming this is to be a Scottish distillery. They make whisky (as, I believe, do the Canadians for some reason).

Whiskey is from Ireland, Wales, America, Japan, Belgium, Albania, Yorkshire or wherever else you want to get something to wash your socks in. Shocked

Cheers.

Chris - when you say molasses tanks, which type do you mean? If it the United Molasses type which were conversions from the oil tankers (as per the Airfix/Dapolkit), then there are quite a few pictures around plus someone does the transfers.
Also, are you aware of the SGD grain wagons that ran from Cameron Bridge. If you are not to fussy about having the correct design, Dapol did a version of them based on the old Wrenn body.

I never noticed this: perhaps because I don't drink either of them.

Looking forward to seeing the layout: I've a soft spot for Scottich Region models.
