Alan’s 12mm scale scratch built armoured Simplex. He was also working of the frames for two more of these models.
Richard recently bought this part-built diorama/module off Ebay, originally intended for 00 gauge track. It features a Norfolk Wherry and a small motor boat at the wharf between warehouses with a hand painted back scene. He is hoping to add 009 track and a small fiddle yard to operate it as a narrow gauge scenic module.
John’s excellent 16mm scale home-designed and home 3D printed diesel (with micro processor sound), cattle van and guards van.
Graham brought along his approx. 95% completed O9 layout “Pye Rigg Works”, a small railway maintenance shed on the moors. Steam tram “Leviathan” is passing the shed sidings with a passenger train, and diesel loco “Oread” is at the end of the head shunt.
A few of Nigel’s O-16.5 scale locomotives, both modified r-t-r and scratch built, on commercial chassis.
This is Chris’s scale plan for his O9 layout. Much of the stock and motive power has been built, and he is planning to have a tippler (mock-up seen on the right) tipping stone into a lower main line (2ft 3″) siding which runs along the front. Also, a turntable is now planned for turning the tractor loco’s.
Ray was working on this model of Woody Bay Station in 1:76 scale. It is a nicely modified kit by RailReality, he has improved the stone walls and added new doors and interior fittings.
A couple of Jim’s recent 009 locos running on his “Hubbards Halt” layout. An nice Ebay 3D print by Tinweb, and a French WW1 Pechot Bourdon loco. He has added plug-in cassettes to the right-hand end of the layout to move extra stock around.
Stuart was building 16mm wagons, both by Slaters. On the left is a 16W07 War Dept. A class wagon, and the bogies are 16B01 D Class Bogie kits.
David was working on his scale 009/HO9 plan, which shows 16 electrical sections controlled by micro-processor units along with a shuttle along the front. He has this 3D printed railcar based on a Class 150 DMU for the shuttle.
