    I was going to say something not very complimentary - but then I saw the last few pics with Southern engines in it! \:D/

    Anyway, very nice - I have taken a real liking to depot layouts recently. I have been building up my BR southern steam collection to do a small layout as a steam MPD.

    I like how you have done something with the superquick card shed with the ivy on the sides - when I did mine a few years ago I just plonked it down on the layout and put some lights inside. At the moment I am too busy with uni work, other railway work, building and weathering my rolling stock to turn any attention to the buildings on my layout.

    What did you use as the vegetation growing off the top (and out of) the retaining wall?

    Very nice, the Superquick engine shed kit is probably my favourite engine shed kit (which is good as it's probably the cheapest!). Hoping to put one on my layout at the end of the branch, probably a bit big for the end of a branch line but what the heck it's my layout :smt002


    Very good idea with placing the wall with the office at the edge of the layout and leaving the office off, may have to steal that idea off you for mine.

    Nice attention to details, turning some well known off the sheld intems into a good shed scene.

    Did you put the double chimney on 60800 yourself or is that a Bachmann goof ?.

    Your Western region collection is one to envy.

    Thanks for the comments,

    The Green Arrow model is a Bachmann model, with regards to the vegetation, i dont know where it came from, the layout was made for me as a present for christmas, all the info on it can be found :

    http://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Fo ... 39&start=0

    Hope that is of some help.

    Not only the westerns, there are almost 10 Bulleids in the collection :smt002
    Along with 4/5 A4's and 3 Coronations, plus many more locos from each region \:D/

    Nice photos Kieran. They've come out well. Best one of course though is the Southern one. :smt002

    Yup, all the locos (plus many many more) are in my garage and around my house, i however didnt buy them all. I only truely own the NRM Flying Scotsman, M7, J83, Standard 5, Canadian Pacific, and some other smaller models. They were my Dad's, and before he passed away he said to me to look after all the models, and i'd like to think thats what im doing, he knew how to spend his money and im glad i have these models to remember him by, after all he is the reason i love steam.


    There's 7 in those pics :smt002

    4 LMS red ones, 1 blue, 1 black and 1 green, although there are many more more, the gold plated Lizzie is somewhere around and there are several Hornby/Hornby Railways/Triang versions of her, she was dad's favourite loco, and when you have a favourite loco youve got to have every version of her :smt002
    Theres almost 10 Bulleids in the collection, 3 coronations, 5 A4's and many more different classes, plus some rarer ones like the Blue Pullman and a specially made Class 309 Unit. I probably sound like im showing off but i dont mean to be, just enjoying making use and taking pics of some of dads treasures (some of which he had when he was a kid, which makes a few of them over 40 years old!)

    Cheers.

    Presumably they don't all come out to play at the same time then!.

    Are the Corinations oldish Hornby models ?, i remember having a Hornby 6233 and forvere cursing it's inability to shift more than two coaches, long since consigned to the terminally knackered drawer though :( .

    Hehe nope!

    The LMS Red and LMS blue Coronation models are from "Hornby Railways" so they are quite oldish, but the LMS black one is (i think) one of the more recent Coronation models.

    I'm dissapointed now! I thought you had tried something out with burning oil to get that effect! You have reaqlly ruined my illusion's of it now!
    But looks good anyway! Nice to show off a shed scene of all different railways! Well done mate! =D>

    realy like these pictures kieran, even though 34007 isn't a fan of the editing i am a keen photographer and often edit some of my shots but only in terms of contrast, brightness and cropping but i like the way you've added the smoke effect out of chimney and cylinder cocks . Well done =D> and keep different shots coming, always like to see models as well as the real things.

    Thanks very much :smt001 , i took a few more today of some more of the fleet (a couple slightly blurry) which includes some of the diesels and a few of the smaller steam locos in the fleet. First off is the diesels which feature Class 31 (D5512), Class 37 (D6700), Class 20 (D8046) Class 25/2 (D5237) plus a 2 car DMU.

    A shot to recreate when diesel and steam were running side by side with D5112 and Standard 5 73068.

    [​IMG]

    And now for the smaller steam loco's which feature LMS Pug 51235, GNR J52 1247, GNR N2 1763 and Southern Terrier No 13 "Carisbrooke".

    Have you got a larger layout to run all these locos on, as you seem to have a large (and fantastic) collection there?
