Hi David,

I'm glad that you were able to figure out how to post your photos to the forums. Your scenes are very detailed. Please show us more!

Cheers!!

Dave

I'm just a dude with a bad back having a lot of fun with model trains, and finally building a layout!

Thanks for the welcome, Simon.

Thanks for the help, Henry.

 

As mentoned (above)  the layout is set in three timeframes.

In the beginning I ran only diesels in the 1968/78 timeframe.   Then my young grandchildren (aged 6,5,4,3 and 3)  wanted to join in.

We began to run little four wheeled steam engines and four wheeled trucks as they were easy to handle. I became 'hooked' on running the steam engines, so when the grandchildren are not here a 1914/1919  timeframe was implemented.

The strange thing now, is that the grandchildren are always want to run the diesels.  My younger granddaughter is even more interested in the real engines and  is often seen at Heritage Museums.

I have a liking of LMS locomotives  and have a small collection of six engines.  When I run them the scene becomes 1930s.

Therefore I have one track layout, but can run trains in different eras.  All great fun.

Hi everyone (again).   I have posted another photograph, hopefully correctly.   (I'll not know until after 24 hours.)

Meanwhile,  a little history about Leeds Sovereign Street & Clarence Dock Railway. It is a layout set in three timeframes.  One is in 1914 to 1919.   The second 1930s  and the third is 1968 to 1978   

In the 1890s the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company built a line from Dewsbury Market Place Station to Leeds Central with a station at Leeds Sovereign Street.    They then built another line from Sovereign Street to Wetherby; with the intention of reaching York.

A small railway company, Kirkstall & East Seacroft Railway had running rights through Sovereign Street  on to East Seacroft.

More to follow with hopefully a plan of the layout.

I don't know what you did, but it didn't involve following all the directions in the sticky on How To Post Photos

We can't even click on your link.  That sounds harsh, and I don't mean to be harsh.  Posting pics in this forum is unlike any other forum I've been in.  Your pic is here;

There is photo software that does what is called photo stacking.  It puts together multiple photos, focused at different points to create extreme depth of field.  Your pic could use that.

Back to posting pics.  At the bottom right on Flickr is an upward arrow pointing right.  Click on that.   Choose BB link and copy that.   That includes information that points to Flickr and your account.  All you need is the open bracket just to the left of img] everything that follows and the closed bracket just after /img]

Paste it as text in your post, without any of the picture or link icons.
