    Morning Dave! All cars stop here is another one of your nicely detailed models. There is so much going on in such a small space, brilliant.👍

    New Walmington pier is a beautiful layout which emulates what life was like with trams. Dave I like your selection of trams and your friends tram layout is very nice to.

    With the 30+ degrees C we've been getting here in parts of the UK it would be worth checking your layouts in garages, lofts or elsewhere in the house especially if they are little used. My New Walmington Pier (www.walmingtonpier.webs.com) is wrapped in plastic and kept in the garage, luckily it is in the shade and suffered no damage, unlike some of the unfortunate tales I've heard about of boards warping, rails pulled out of their fixings, straight track doing S bends, etc. Just an occasional check is all that's needed. Took it out of its wrapping last week and the five most important items on the layout still work: Layout Southend Pier Tram Works Tram Carousel Sound system. Then re-wrapped and back on the shelf. Here's New Walmington Pier in the raw - No trams, no plane, no sound system and no electrics connected:

    Early Southend livery - Two coats of BR green for the body and two coats of BR grey for the roof but I can't glue the roof on until the figures arrive and glued into place.

    Back on Track!!!! This weekend's job is painting my second Southend Pier Toastrack Car from grey primer to dark green with a cream roof. Toastrack model in grey primer Toastrack Car 8 returned to Southend after service on Volk's Railway Brighton. It didn't stay on public display for long due to vandalism. The same car on display at Chelmsford City Museum following restoration by Alan Keef Engineering.

    Hi Mark, Here is one of my friends simple tram layout - one car, one track, one street, one board! Called 'Torhampton' it represents a Victorian tram experiment using contact studs, unfortunately the prototype system (somewhere in South London) had the habit of electrocuting horses and people if the studs didn't fully retract after the tram had passed - hence the dead horse on the road.

    Hi Mark, Trams can be expensive and there's so few ready-to-run two rail trams about. Suggest you trawl eBay and look for Bachmann trams, ideally the plain red and plain blue Hong Kong style ones once made for UK market or the Birkenhead ones 69 & 70.
