Stour Valley Dream - progress on P4 layout

Postby barhamd » Sun Nov 11, 2018 5:45 pm

While I've been regularly posting on rmweb about the P4 layout I thought that those here who don't both with that site might like to see progress. I now have the five main baseboards which feature Clare station built and the track down and wired. This weekend I had fun playing trains and produced a quick video on youtube to prove that you can model in Scalefour without trains falling off the track.

A Cravens DMU (Bachmann) arrives from Cambridge.

An E4 and pair of Gresley coaches arrives from Long Melford.

Hope you enjoy it.

Double Aahhhhhhh

Hence the question about radius and potential P4 layouts, as per another thread on here.
I'm dropping down to about 40" at the tightest spots, getting a continuous run in the room which is ~19'x9'

Unlikely to see a Pacific but a 4-6-0 is a possibility.
