    'All Cars Stop Here' made its first public viewing at my local Tramway & Light Railway Society Group meeting at Ipswich Transport Museum along with Peter Boyt's 'Crickey - It's a shed (He forgot the shed!) and Phil Carver' magnetically connected N scale trolleybuses and trams. The real star of the day was the latest restoration of the museum's Cambridge Horse Tram 7. All Cars Stop Here 所有的车都停在这里Hong Kong themed microlayout. Illuminated Faller Carousel on Peter Boyt's 'Crickey it's a shed' Phil Carver's magnetically connected N scale trolleybuses and trams.

Bachmann HKT 56 inHong Kong Tramways centennial wrap on the emergency crossover. Bachmann HKT 106 in the current JCDecaux advertising wrap about to reverse over the emergency crossover. My own conversion of HKT Works Car 400 negotiating the emergency crossover. Corgi Citybus Volvo Olympian in the bus bay. Just to add streetlamps, around100 figures, and Chinese banners, but they can wait until my return from Hong Kong in January. Enjoy!!!

    All Cars Stop Here - OO scale Hong Kong influenced micro-layout. has now grown up enough to cease to be a workbench item as it is nowbeginning to look like a tram layout! Works Car 400 sitting by the incomplete yet operational emergency crossover. Hobby Scenes road cones protect the work site and Caboose Industries 208S Switch Throws provide point operation (I used to model HO American). Bachman HKT Car 56 and Corgi Citybus Volvo Olympian at the west end of the micro. All Cars Stop Here - 05/08/18.

    The ballasting was a disaster so out it came and the crossover sits in a 'concrete pit' awaiting final surfacing. Busch road surfacing was added to the infill between tracks and to the bus stand area. Some pavement has been added and yesterday (22/7) test running commenced - a bit erratic at first but HK Works Car 400 gradually improved as running progressed.
  12. Terminus, All Change!

    Change of heart! I had plans on scrapping my 'Terminus - All Change!!!' OO tram micro-layout at the end of the year, but not any more. Instead it'll continue with British only trams and the proper Hong Kong cars move to 'All Cars Stop Here' which is my HK tram micro-layout currently under construction. The only work needed to fully anglicize this layout is to replace the Hong Kong bus shelter with something more 'British' .

    Another day in the cool garage doing a bit more on my OO scale Hong Kong Tramways influenced microlayout. All four Bachmann Scenecraft modern office blocks arrived. Track edging complete and ground throws added to the newly-installed crossover. Mocked up with the three working trams in place. All three will most probably stay on the board demonstrating the short-working emergency reversing process both ways. Close up of the newly commissioned crossover with rails painted in reddish pink to represent mill scale as seen on new track and Caboose Industries 218S ground throws with Peco adaptors. The switch gaps have been stuffed with paper to keep the contact surfaces clean during painting and prior to ballasting. Looking down on 'All Cars Stop Here'

    With a bit of modification they could be stackable, other than the corner revolving door entrances,plus at £30-35 each it would get very expensive and like my aborted multi-storey garage attempt, the buildings would be heavier than the layout!!
