Are you sure you are not related to Perry. You both are doing exceptional work on your prespective model's. Just hope when i get down to mine it is half as good. Well done on a so far fascinating model. As Tim says, we need a family list to work out where we are with this huge family, giving me headache working out who is who and where and what jobs they have :? .

Good fun watching it all coming together. Your scenic work looks very good. I reckon the variety of greens, especially near the church, is particularly convincing. I like the lighting too.

Mike has already mentioned the lighting Novice and it makes such a tremendous difference to the photographs so I'm wondering if you have plenty of daylight coming on to the layout or are you using lamps of some kind?

There is a window above the layout which helps on bright days. I find that flash photography is too harsh and over emphasises the colours, so I use a standard lamp to illuminate the area I am photographing. I have put a 100w 'daylight' bulb in this. Once the backscenes are installed I intend to put clusters of similar lamps above each corner of the layout. At the moment I am moving the lamp around.

A couple of views looking in the other direction. The farm (in the left foreground) is starting to come together. I still need to do the grasswork behind the thatched farm house and weather the farm yard. The tractor is a little out of scale and will be replaced.

Is the thatched farm house one of your own or a kit?

The farm house is a swap meet wreck that I have used as the basis for the model. It was originally a poorly made up Faller kit. The chimneys, made from sprue, need to be finished off and there is further weathering to do. The barn is a Wills kit made straight from the box. It has been weathered, but needs some clutter to make it blend in. I will show some views of the farm when complete.

Operations at last :)

Today I decided to take a break from railway construction and run some trains. Now that Middleton station is in a reasonable state I decided to operate the railway using Upton Pier and Dunton Castle stations in effect as fiddle yards. I ran a series of through passenger trains from the two towns pulled by class 25's and 37's. In the meantime a stopping service consisting of my only DCC converted DMU, a class 108, ran between Upton and Dunton. This service was held at Middleton when the fast service needed to come through. I also ran a couple of freight trains pulled by a class 20 and a steam Ivatt 2-6-0 class 2. This latter engine could not cope with one of the inclines and was quickly retired!

I am starting to think about developing an operations schedule which I will expand as the other stations are modelled. All in all a great change from construction work. A couple of pictures:

An Dunton bound class 108 DMU on the early morning stopping service is held on red to allow the fast Dunton to Upton express through, being pulled by a class 37.






The same view from Middleton level crossing.

Very nice photographs Novice. I spent many quite happy hours designing Barchester's operating schedules and timetables, all part of the hobby. You get to run a lot of trains as well while you are testing moves and placements. :wink:

Lovely atmosphere to those images, Novice. :D

I really have to get myself a two-car Class 108. Maybe I'll find one at Warley. :idea:

Thanks to you all for your kind comments. :oops:

I would like to run 3 car DMUs, however, sadly my 2 small stations will only take 2 cars. I intend to buy another DMU set at some stage but havn't made up my mind what just yet.

White Farm is a very small farm on the outskirts of Middleton. It is owned by Cedric Dapol, who runs it with his 2 sons, Wilfred and Jack. The farm is a little run down. The farm house is an old Faller kit, which has been restored and detailed. The barn is a Wills kit:








Today Cedric is livid as he believes that one of his sons has knocked over an oil drum, spilling 25 gallons of waste engine oil into the yard. The finger of suspicion is falling upon Wilfred, who claims he is innocent:






Brother Jack maintains a low profile and continues to stack the feed sacks.






In fact the real culprits lurk behind a bush - they are the Vicar's boys who spend much of their spare time playing near the farm: :)









Well that's the farm done. On to the backscenes, a task I have been putting off!

Brilliant models Novice - you really must drop this nom de plume - it gives totally the wrong impression. :?

Also, like diesel, I love the story. Could we be in at the birth of a modern Thomas the Tank Engine I ask myself? :shock: :shock: :shock:

Remember folks you heard it on Barchester first. :lol:
