My small scale (in both senses) foray into 'N' gauge is nearly complete, with just a few small details to add and the wiring and twin fiddle yards to finish off. It's ultra-basic in terms of track layout, but it's given me a chance to try out a number of building and scenic techniques. It'll also serve as a useful photographic backdrop for the numerous 2mm scale loco and rolling stock projects that I have in the queue.

Here's a few photos of the main baseboard, showing how it looks as of this morning...

The Farish/Scenecraft GWR Pagoda and halt platform look at home, but I need to come up with a name for this out-of-the-way location.

I'm pleased with the farm approach road - Tamiya textured paints are perfect for this sort of thing.

Making use of as many off-the-shelf products and completed in the shortest time possible, this project has been an interesting challenge. 


  1. Hello George,

    Very nice indeed! I'm looking forward to seeing more of it in the journal!

    About the name: Unless you see it somewhere in Wales, why not make it the could-have-been "Crowan" halt on the former GWR branch to Helston, just uphill southwards from Praze-an-Beeble? Modeller's licence could then make your off-the-shelf cottage into Clowance Estate (both of which by the way seem to boast bus halts today).

    Kind regards,
