We already have been to a lot of exhibitons with our layout. Each time we need to change the trains, a lot of time is needed. Therefore we decided to build a fiddle yard into our layout. It won't be a large fiddle yard, but it will allow us to have 3 or 4 trains on each track (inner and outer track). People who are more interested is the locos and ------ will be able to see them standing stil on the fiddle yard track.
We are also changing the concept of our layout : we will have a double track , as now, but it won't be incorported anymore in the landscape. The double track is lying on his own small modules (40cm large) and behind it , there will be the new landscape modules. Even in a later stadium, we will be able to put landscape modules in front of the double track so that trains are running "through" the landscape, as it should be.
Peter is building landscape modules , inspired
on a Swiss landscape. A single track will come out of a tunnel on
the left hand side, run over a bridge, pass a ruine and will
leave again through a tunnel on the right hand side. Overhead catenary
is the SBB-CFF -FFS style.
A lot of work is still needing ...
OLD INDUSTRIAL site (Leuven, Belgium)
I was looking to use my Officina Uno grain hopper. It had to be a small industrial site and by coincidence I found it in my hometown. Near the canal, there is an abandoned grain mill, the silos belong to an abandoned part of the Stella Artois, Interbrew, site.
With the help of articles and a lot of photographs, I began drawing the buildings. Then Albert converted it into Autocad.
