Hi Reg

I wasn't that interested in the diesel/modern era, but I think you've just converted me :cool wink

Did you model the canal museum and shops on an actual place? It just looks similar to somewhere I've been.

(Perhaps I've just spent too many holidays visiting museums).

That Deltic is certainly not 'hanging about'.

Great stuff  :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs


Ed

Hi Ed .
No particular place ,just trying to fit in with the space formed by the curved viaduct, and the fact that the corner needed to have some sort of activity to fill in with.  i used  some " shops under arches" from Scalescenes ,added some figures and LED ,s . Like Topsy it just grewed.
I enjoy scratchbuilding ,trouble is Ed i find it takes so long ,the remainder of the layout doesn,t get any attention.  Blossom Hill has no platforms yet!
Thanks for your interest ,i will try to show some more pictures later.

Perhaps i should have added ,i have steam and diesel loco,s.  The steamers though derail now and again,especially the pony trucks.  In fairness that,s probably down to my track laying.   The diesels though are more forgiving, are more likely to not stall on points ,so in order to have a happy running session ,they get used the most.

That's the problem Reg.

I'm a "steam man" myself - love the glamour and raw power associated with steam locos plus, they take me back to my youth but, as in the real world, the diesel models outperform the steamers in almost every way.  I decided to compromise and go "transition" era. :thumbs

During the Christmas break I popped over to Reg's to see how he has progressed with Blossom Hill. The first thing noted is that he has decided to focus on Network Southeast and so there is a build up of red white and blue rolling stock - notably a super looking Hornby VEP:


The canal area has received some attention too











There are some lovely little cameos with all sorts to catch the eye:





Also inside the mill there are all sorts of goodies:





The terraced houses also contain a wealth of detail too













And to finish with another train - a class 33:

Thanks for sharing those photos, Bob.  It really is a great layout.  :thumbs

I've always imagined that if I lived there, one of those long canal boats would make a groovy home.

I'm still trying to catch up Reg and I've got this far now.

A really stunning collection of photos from Bob of a super layout.  I love those little cameos around the canal.  The scaffolding on the terraced houses is also a brilliant addition.

It's so often the little details that lift a layout above the also-rans and yours is full of these details.  Excellent. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

A bit of train spotting at Blossom Hill. I popped over to visit Reg and see how he has got on since my last visit. The platforms are in, a footbridge is under construction and lights are being fitted on the platforms. Here are some pictures. First an overview:



And now some NSE stock:













A BR Class 25 runs through the relief line at the head of a cement train:





A Chilterns Line Turbostar calls by:



The platform seats are the new laser cut kits from Metcalfe.



A Class 47 at the head of a rake of MK 1s.



An old Green Class 24 in the headshunt:



And finally a 9F hauls a tanker train through the station:

Some very nice stock there Bob. :thumbs:thumbs

Pity the old Class 24 is just rusting away in that siding - does Reg want to give it a new lease of life here in France ........along with that lovely 9F ? ......:roll::roll::roll:

The Metcalfe seats look pretty decent.  How many do you get in the kit ?

Thanks for the photos, Bob.

That's a nice weathering job on the Class 24, Reg.

Did you do it yourself?
