Knell Lane

So i have finally decided what my N gauge layout will be called, or the station anyway. The layout depicts somewhere in the South East in about 1973 so i have chosen the name Knell Lane. There actually is a Knell Lane in Kent though it doesn't have a station in real life. The layout will not depict the real place anyway, i've never been there for a start so wouldn't know where to start. Knell Lane station has a building now anyway.

Brake van

A brake van has arrived on the layout to help keep those unruly wagons (i've read all of the Rev. Awdrey's stories) in order!

Running in complete

After a couple of hours of running in the Class 25 is now allowed into the station area! I must decide on a name for the station.

New arrivals

As mentioned there have been some new arrivals at the (as yet) unnamed N gauge layout. A Class 25 diesel locomotive and 2 wagons (a ventilated van and a mineral wagon). The "Rat" is currently running in. I do have an OO scale Class 25 in storage, i must dig it out so we can do a "father and son" type of photo shoot! Merry Christmas to all readers!

Completing the platforms

Platform 2/3 has now been completed with a ramp though will only be able to take 2-coach trains so a DMU will be needed at some stage. I must now start thinking of what else i am going to have on the platforms. Santa will also be bringing me some more rolling stock hopefully...

Platform 2

The first part of Platform 2/3 (as of course it should be) has now been completed and can be seen below. For clearance purposes the 4-Cep has become a 3-Cep for the time being so the spare coach can be used to make sure the platform is the right size!

More platform

Platform 1 is now more or less complete with the addition of a ramp and a few refinements. Platform 2 (which will be to the left of the 4-Cep in the photo below, between 2 lines) is also under construction. In other news should have some company for the 4-Cep in the shape of a locomotive in a few weeks...
