All Cars Stop Here 所有的汽车停在这里 in 2019

Recommended Posts

My OO scale Hong Kong Tramways microlayout 'All Cars Stop Here 所有的汽车停在这里' next two exhibitions are:

22 & 23 June - Totally Models, Blackpool Transport Services, Rigby Road, Blackpool FY1 5DD
and 
29 June - Braintree & Halstead MRC, Braintree Arts Theatre, 15 Bocking End, Braintree CM7 9AE

Based upon a Hong Kong street scene where service disruptions cause trams to traverse an emergency crossover serving alighting and boarding shelters.

Dave another fine example of your modelling and layout skills. I really like your trams and the attention to detail is super.😉

Who said this hobby was relaxing and therapeutic? Just about a week before packing to go to Blackpool and withdrew the Tow Truck as it is too delicate for exhibition use, then I've found a broken wiring connection, can't find soldering iron, nearest model shop to me is 15 miles away in Bury St Edmunds, nearest really good model shop to me is 35 miles away in Norwich who has come to the rescue with a Hornby power connector track (I swear by them for their robustness on the exhibition circuit). So off to Norwich tomorrow (14/6) and after the weekend, a day to sort everything out for the show.

Dave I’m sure you will sort out the issue. I must admit I always use Hornby R8206 power track for my micro layouts and dioramas. I find they are so much easier than soldering.

All Cars Stop Here 所有的汽车停在这里

Entire view of layout. Static Safety Training Car 888 has been removed to give a clear view for photography.
One taxi, two buses and three trams all in three feet length!!

Bit more 'concreting' in the crossover area (actually more plastic track infills)

A bit of subtle humour - Birkenhead 69 (built in Hong Kong) returns home!!!

All ready for the drive to Blackpool tomorrow (21/6), the weekend will have its sad moments for my late friend Debbie and I were there last year, but this year there are differences - Different route A1/M62/M6/M55, (last year it was M6/M55 at 25mph average speed). Different layout All Cars Stop Here  所有的汽车停在这里 , (last year it was New Walmington Pier). Different hotel. Different hall in the tram depot. and.... ....
The layout will receive a new tram. More about that when I get back on Monday!
