As work draws to a close on 4358,and before the big photo-shoot and video,I thought I'd add a few pics of the real thing,and a few facts and figures.
   Built at Swindon in lot 198,completed on the 16th April 1914,she was first shedded at Plymouth Laira.Almost 30 years later,in Jan 1944,she recieved outside steam pipes,but as I'm modelling the 30's,I omitted them.Her last shed was Gloucester,and she was the last of her class to be withdrawn on Aug 11th,1959 after completing 1,406,215 miles!!!
  This first,rather dark picture shows her crossing Brunels Royal Albert Bridge in 1919.



  This second picture shows her about to be coaled up in 1955 with  outside steam pipes now fitted.


 
And here's one of her in 1957,looking good for another million miles!!!





  And finally,the sad one,as she waits her fate at the hands of the cutters' torch.:cry:



Cheers for now,John.B.

John.  Loved the video.  Great first go.  I hope my first one is as good!  Also loved the song.  We might do it in our band.  Do you have any details?  Cheers  Max

Max,
     Good luck with the gig
Chris,
     Yes,it was her first 'proper' run...that's why I was so disappointed with the layout.She was let down by bad track,so the layout had to go! Bit extreme,I know,but if your track is crap,then you don't really HAVE a layout.Most irritating was the fact that I was SO near to finishing my first layout!
     The plan then was to sell it...I thought it'd make a good start for some young kid.However,that crappy track frustrated me so much,and I didn't want to pass that on to some poor unsuspecting innocent.
     When demolition is complete,I'll at least have the points to sell,and I've managed to salvage so much of the good stuff,so it ain't all bad!!!

Brian,
       Just as soon as all the salvage work on Old Haysbridge is finished(later today),work will start on Perranporth.............
......WHOOOPPPEEE!!!
;-)

Cheers,John.B.

Looking forward to Perranporth John!  Agree about the track - unless 2nd hand track is absolutely mint I just would not touch it as if you cannot get it right your railway will never work properly.

Chris,
        You're not wrong mate! I've got a box of code 50 finescale peco track,and some lovely new live frog large radius points.
    Can't wait to get the track laid.....but I'm reigning myself in.
A proper period of planning prior to doing ANYTHING!
    I intend to learn from my old mistakes!!!:roll::oops:

Cheers,John.B.

John, re Planning, Yes, it is critical to plan (even roughly)but even then things go wrong - my first un-official running session last night with 3 others, showed some flaws in electric indication of point settings & track work especially on getting some distance between leaving the main station & running around the loop back into it again.

It seems that no matter no matter how much planning is done, it is not until the fist real lot of train movements are undertaken , that some hiccups happen - Murphy's Law?
