Tytton Hall Yard Photographs

December 2014

The layout has now got a perminant fiddle yard attached to the clubroom wall. This has increased the amount of space we have in the clubroom allowing us to start the new N Gauge layout. You can see in some of the photos how this fiddle yard fits above our test track. We now now regually use the layout on clubnights as an additional running track.

The layout is now fitted with signals although these need wireing up and further scenic work has been completed. However there is still much that can be done in this area.

After it's first few exhibition appearences it became apparent that the points used in the fiddle yard were too tight. Wider radius points have therefore been fitted and the below photos are from when we were testing the completed pointwork and wireing.

April 2008

As you can see we have now finished forming the majority of the landscape with a little more left to do in some areas. We have also covered the landform in plaster. We used the same stuff you use to stick plasterboard onto the wall with. It has set rock solid and was sanded down in some areas before painting with brown paint that was found in the clubroom. As you can see there are some areas which still need painting and these have been left due to wet plaster being in those areas or in the case of the coal heap an unavalability of black paint.

All trackwork and ballesting has been completed. Some areas of landform have also been done using inuulation foam board. This was very easy to sculpt using a file.
