Ilkley in T gauge by Graham Burnley

 

The Ilkley layout came around whilst I was wondering what I could do on a single 1 foot by 8 foot exhibition board with a small fiddleyard which can easily be transported by car. This layout was conceived in June 2016 but only got started in late 2018 as I was still working on my other layouts. I first obtained an aerial shot from Google Maps in order to get sufficient detail to make the layout a bit more special. The photo and modified for use with T-Gauge standard set–track parts.

As you can tell by looking at the plan this is a 6 siding layout in which the two at one end are the platforms and the other four are then for the fiddleyard. Four working train units can be operated at full peak. All sidings are HST set size so no problem if you want a special train to roll into any platform. Buildings and surrounding station area were produced using my 3D printer as I wanted to practice my drawing skills. Some of these is now on the Shapeways web site for buying in T-Gauge 1.450 scale only.


If you would like to hire this layout for your exhibition or show it needs provisions of car hire + fuel.
Insurance for the layout is £1000.00 excluding rolling stock and it requires 2 operators plus lunch.
If over 60 miles from Bradford West Yorkshire accommodation with breakfast will be required.
The layout will only require a UK Standard 13A socket; power is minimal.

Low Moor T gauge from BMRC member Graham Burnley 5ft 6" (1750mm) by 3ft 6" (950mm)
This layout was conceived whilst the new Low Moor Railway Station in West Yorkshire was under constructed on site (2016 to 2017) and I thought that it could be done in T-gauge 1.450 scale.
Whilst the real railway station has been open for over a year (as of May 2018) my layout like the real railway been a little late as it has taken 2 years to build.

Simple construction of the layout is by using stacked A1 foam sheets as T-Gauge is not heavy,  (22mm in T Gauge = 10 meters in real life approx). Plastic sheeting 2mm thick was used to obtain the top surface on which the diorama/scenery is placed.
All buildings are either made from 3D printing or scratch built from various materials. There are: over 200 vehicles, over 180 trees, 45 residential buildings (5 different types) and 34 different 3D printed or scratch built industrial buildings.
The layout is a double track continuous loop. Each track can be run from a mains power supply or by 6 AA batteries (these lasts about 2 – 6 hours).
I had not intended this layout to be an exhibition-piece as it was to be for home use only but I was invited to display the layout at the Bradford Model Railway Club May 2018 exhibition.
 
If you would like to hire this layout for your exhibition it requires 1 operator plus lunch. If over 60 miles from Bradford, West Yorkshire then accommodation and breakfast is required.
Needs provision of car hire + fuel and insurance for the layout £2000.00 excluding rolling stock.
The layout will only require one socket and only consumes 4.5 volts which is very small power output. Please forward any enquires to: Graham Burnley thunderhawk@btinternet.com or telephone 0745 299 4060 between 4pm and 6pm and also weekends.

The layout set somewhere on the Southern Region around London in the early 90's, which allows locos from any region appearing, The upper level has a station terminus which is 3rd rail, with a freight yard on the lower level, which deals with steel traffic.
Three reception sidings receive trains which are then shunted into the warehouse.

Ullapool O (7mm=1ft) Ian Atkinson Formally owned by Ian Futers)14ft 6" by 2ft PLUS Operator space.

This 7mm layout depicts what a Highland Railway branch line between Garve, on the Kyle line, and Ullapool, by the shores of Loch Broom, may have look like, had the line been built in the 1890s. It is assumed the line stayed open until the period modelled in the 1970s – 80s. The structures are all based on prototypes. Operation of the line is in the main, BRCW Type 2 motive power with timber and fish traffic somehow still surviving, whilst a mediocre passenger service links Ullapool with Dingwall and Inverness.

Hire this layout for your show.
Needs provision of a large car or small van + fuel as well as lunch and vast quantities of tea for 3 operators. Accommodation with breakfast required if over approx 1 hours travelling. Requires a table, 2 sockets, consumption 400W (mainly lighting). Insurance value £5000 excluding stock
