I have been working on the proposed signalling for Begbrooke. Following discussion, comments and help in the other place, I have decided to make a small change to the track layout at the right hand side of the scenic area. The arrangement I had varied from the prototype at the end of the branch sidining and connection back to down main using a double slip to compress things so the connection was in the scenic area. This limited capacity of this section of the branch to be used as loop to hold a train that is being passed by another. So I've decided to delete the double slip and put the connection back the other side of the farm bridge. This then allows a 20 wagon or so freight to be held - 20 wagons being the capacity of the staging tracks typically. This layout is also a bit easier to signal and ends up being the same as the prototype pre-WW2.

Here's the revised track plan:


And the signal diagram to go with it:

Modifications to the track currently underway!

Thanks for looking,

Jon

I've now started on the scenery for the layout. Work in progress are the bridges (which have taken longer than first envisaged!) then I'm going to move on to the earthworks and the buildings. The station buildings I'm going to do last as they're the most complex, so I'm going to start on the goods shed and then the signal box.

Here's the CAD drawing for the goods shed which I hope to start making this weekend. In the absence of a drawing for the prototype the dimensions have been scaled from photos. The model will be made from card using Scalescenes textures.

 

 

 

More updates soon, hopefully

 

Thanks for looking,

 

Jon

:) Excellent progress Jon,

I do like the way you have designed your railway and moved into signaling.

That goods shed does look well on the drawing board.

Best of luck with your progress.

Derek.

Looking forward to the shed build, nice layout, and soooooper railway room!

Coming along very nicely, the signalling diagram is something I still have to come to grips with in the future.

Keep it coming.

Well, construction of the goods shed hasn't started yet. I have been both a bit distracted and seriously underestimated the time it would get from a pretty picture to drawings of the individual parts, but there a quite a few:







Hopefully it fits together pretty much to the plans. If this goes OK, it will have been a good test for the other buildings.

Thanks for looking

Jon

Been a while since I looked in Jon but you've made some good progress in that time. I like the look of that Goods Shed and will be following your build with interest.

Forgot to show what it should hopefully look like when put together, rather than make you use your imagination!

Rather than the goods shed, I've built the road bridge by the station
 
The bridge from old photos looks similar to the one by Hatton station, this design being fairly common on the the Oxford-Birmingham line though some have had centre spans replaced I think


 
The centre iron girder span, I have assumed to be like the bridge over the canal at Heyford


 
So here's the model:
 
The side brick arches, showing the skewed arch. The joins between the arch soffit and the side wall and the abutments and piers. The former was a right pain to do, the shape it ended up not being obvious at all, a lot of trial and error was required.

 The deck being built, showing the beams and the jack arches


 Finished (apart from the road over it) bridge


 
The dark stone colour for the girders hopefully is right, that's how I read the notes in Great Western Way and the B&W photo I have of bridge shows relatively dark shade. Now onto the earthworks...hopefully things will speed up a bit.  But first I need to clear away the mountain of card offcuts and printed paper. Card modelling for me is a messy business!

 
Jon

Great work on the bridge Jon. :thumbs I am amazed at what the 'card modellers' can do with simple card and paper ! Although I do realise what a problem fitting the skewed arch can be. Keep up the excellent work.

Cheers, Gary.

A fantastic looking bridge. Very convincing.

Looking forward to seeing more.

The girders are great, Jon.  Not many people would bother, but it makes a difference.  :thumbs

Enjoyed reading your thread from the beginning Jon

The skewed bridges are brilliant.......having modelled a bit with Scalescene I can readily understand the problems you must have encountered with that design.........but none are apparent......proper job!  I can also relate to disposal of card offcuts:lol:

Absolutely first class modelling Jon which really does full justice to the prototype.

Overcoming the complications of building that skewed bridge plus the level of detail and realism you have achieved are a real credit to your skills.

Thank you, Trevor. I'm a civil engineer (think you're a former QS?) , albeit a highways one not a bridge engineer though  I work closely with them. (In theory at least!). When I was a graduate I did not take at all to structures but despite this thought I should try and get my model plausible. To that end I did consult a colleague as to what span/depth ratio to use for the girders - answer being 20:1, think mine ended up being 18:1 due to rounding up to the nearest millimetre.

All the best,

Jon

Hi Jon
 
I like the skewed bridge a lot and I think it is something that most of us will have to build at some time or another as few roads/rivers appear to be at ninety degrees to it. A lot of people wouldn’t bother with that amount of detail on the underside so I think it’s great to see it.
I’m looking forward to the goods shed progressing though as you seem to be very organised in your approach, unlike me where I do a drawing and then go for it.
Keep up the good work.
 
Jim
