Many people inspire me. (I apologise if I am mixing people on different sites as I am on more then one site).
Gerald H gives his layout a clever reason to mix old and new models and also locos and stock from different eras and on his layout everything comes together rather well.
Glencairn also does this with believeable results using a slightly different approach.
Dublo for his 3 rail which I hardly notice is 3 rail as everything "Fits" and looks the part. It makes one look at a rail railway and ask where the centre rail has gone as it looks so natural.
Chops for his enthusiastic approach and love for British models where British models are not so common.
WalkingTheDog for taking the plunge into 0 gauge which is quite a massive change but looks fun!
I can mention soo many! All Brians for their support. PinknosedPenguin for his amazing 7mm narrow gauge scenes...
Everyone with fun ideas and plans!
Enjoying freelance modelling in 7mm narrow gauge Feel free to ask questions relating to the Mountain Goats Waggon & Carriage Works thread.

Hello all
Thankyou very much for your kind words Mountain Goat. I find it very humbling to receive praise from ones peers. I would never have the courage to build my own track as you have done, and your method of point control is inspired. There are many excellent models and ideas from a number of people that light a spark for me, I hope that people are able to see elements of that in Little Weldon.

Kind words from you all to which I would certainly add my own. I think we are all inspired by what we see and read. I spent a long time looking at YouTube videos, reading model railway magazines and attending exhibitions, just to get some idea of what could be done and how I was going to do it. I look at many layouts on this forum, and think "I wish mine could look like that". It's good to hear that eagle125 has been revitalised - I think we all occasionally get into a rut and walk away from what we are doing. We all need a bit of inspiration - especially at the moment. BB

You would have to paint it - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listi ... dition=all

I can't see if it's still available?

Many thanks, Mountain Goat. Glad to have helped (in whatever shape or form).

Many a layout has inspired me to try something or add something to Crown Point and Sovereign Street even though my approach to model railways is rather unorthodox.
