Dear Mr Downes
I really must complain, please stop taking photographs of real places and passing them off as results of your model making activities.
You are older and should know better that you would be found out some day.
Please stick to playing ancient Shadows hits.

Anyway, how's the new job?!

Best regards.

Allan.


Looks like someone has already done it for you Allan.New job?,time consuming but worth it.


Well thanks whoever it was, but I wanna know how !

And time consuming I'm sure, but time well spent, you're doing a brilliant job Alan and you've got the best back up team behind you, and the best members on any forum.

Cheers. Allan

Well how else do you think I survived in the hobby Ray - I've been getting away with it for over forty years now, so time I was rumbled but you could have whispered it !:hmm

Cheers.

Ashburton Maltings and the most modelled GWR branchline of all time.

The station is now a garage and the mechanic there I spoke to when I visited the old site didn't even know that it was once a station !!!

He said " I often wondered why that shed over there ( pointing to the old engine shed ) had such big doors " !!

The autocoach seen sneeking into the picture was built by Dave Couts and arguably the best coach builder in the buisiness.

The station is my usual design and originaly inspired by the station on Julian Russel's Dale layout, a small Midland masterpiece.

The 14xx seen here pulling out of Willow was the center of controversey where the chimney shows a distinctive lean in the photograph but when checked on the workbench, it was perfectly upright ! - weird...

The signal box, another 'standard' Downes issue...

Another shot of Willow Station, but have you spotted the ' deliberate' mistake ? This was pointed out to me by Chris Liegh, the then editor and a gentleman to boot, of Model Rail and it was a mistake that I must have made a hundred times if I made it once
 before he spotted it - so, can you ?

I built three 'Willows' and this engine shed belonged on one of them, which one, I've no idea !

The signal box at Willow, where else !

The windows aren't really that wobbly, it's just photographic distortion - honestly !

Re the mistake, would lamps have normally been that close to the platform edge?

Well done that man !

No, they would't have, and as Chris Leigh pointed out, swing a carriage door open hard and it would have stoved itself in against the cast iron lamp standard.

Cheers Mike.
