I have been working on re-modelling the back left corner of the layout since the summer heat destroyed part of my track when I left the blinds open, and I wanted to add an additional road to my hidden storage area under the hillside. This is a few pics of the Scalescenes garage/workshop I have built and detailed. Kit was printed at 90% to help with forced perspective and I added detail such as guttering, downpipes and interior detail utilizing the Wills Workshop kit and the Scalelink petrol pumps and garage tools set. Motorcycle is an Airfix kit model taken from their RAF Bomber Group Re-supply kit and the car is from the Oxford range. I model the LMS in the late 1930's and i am hoping I have created the right level of atmosphere and detail for the period.

Tidy enough Ian and it reminds me of my real workshop, which even has a pit and an engineless Austin 7 in it!

Mind you, I can always sweep the debris into the pit, teehe!

Great modeling and full of retro charm .  .  . those Scalelink pumps look the biz.

Best,

Bill

It looks brilliant from France Ian.

Beautiful modelling,

Jencaster must be a very big town to have 547 telephones.

Remember telephones were only owned by businesses, the Doctor and the rich back then, my parents didn't get one until the 1970's.

Not if they're a minimum of 3 digits Q and don't forget public phone boxes.

Think you've got the lighting spot on there Ian from what I've seen in pictures and film (I'm also too young), great picture :thumbs

Even with telephone boxes, pre war you'd still have to be a large town to need a 3 digit exchange. My old family number on the lorries was 30, that was a town of roughly 1000 people. 99 numbers would give 1 in 10 having a telephone, way above the number of actual percentage of users pre war.

They should teach this stuff in school. I never knew the numbering system was totally dependent on population. I always thought it was 3 to begin with. Learn something every day.

Apparently 999 came in in 1937, so they must have been 3 digit by then.

Just apply Rule 1 Ian or scrub out the 5 and the 7, I'm off to count some rivets :mutley

My layout is set in the very late 1930's around 1939 so the 999 bit would work for me. I am quite happy to leave it. Unless somebody tries to call the garage using a wrong number, then no harm done really. I try to be as authentic as I can get it to look, but sometimes, its just impossible to be 100% accurate

In 1957, we moved from a city where we had a 6 digit phone number to a village where our phone number was 18.  All calls outside the village area had to be made via the operator who was contacted by just tapping the cradle a few times.  After a year or so, we had to dial "0" to get him/her.  Now, I don't think he/she exists !!!

Scotland Yard was (and still is) Whitehall 1212 ................................

P.S. The garage looks really good Ian. :thumbs

I can remember my mum phoning my Dad in 1971 from a telephone box and having to go through the operator.We were in Wiltshire, Dad had gone ahead and was in the outer Hebrides. It was all carefully timed so the operator would go off on tea break leaving the line connected without breaking in for more money. It helped the operator was my aunt..

Thank you for the kind comments and glad i prompted a conversation regarding early telephone numbers. I was born in 1970 and all i remember growing up in Suffolk was a 3 digit number when we moved to a new house in 1976.

Looks amazing with the lights on! Did printing it at 90% make any discernable difference do you think?
