Yes I did Nick thanks, but then I saw two pairs of K's on ebay and got them for just £7.50. I also have a couple of 3D prints, so will  wait until I start chopping up all those old clerestorys before ordering any more.

Yes again though, progress is expected soon on the Clifton Downs front!

Hi. Bill. Happy New Year ..I hope you don’t mind me joining in, your mention of “Clerestories” got me interested .I still haven’t done anything with my Clerestories and was wondering about Dean bogies and what you were doing with yours? I had the idea of GWR to LSWR, and got stopped in my tracks, when it was suggested it wouldn’t work. And why are Dean bogies preferred ?   Best wishes.  Kevin

Hi Kevin,

A happy new year to you as well. William Dean joined the GWR as an apprentice in 1855 at the age of 15 and became the Chief Locomotive Engineer in 1877. A man of many parts, also being the Locomotive, Wagon and Carriage Superintendent, he was influential in many aspects of GWR design, hence the Dean bogies.

As I remarked above, I have sufficient bogies for my Clifton Downs project and will doubtless order some more from 247 Developments in due course.

Good luck with your own clerestory work, but let's move such discussion to a new thread, rather than here on Much Murkle.

Best,

Bill

Hi Bill.  That is a good idea. But I have so many projects on the go, I don’t know my ears from my elbow. And I haven’t laid any track on my baseboard’s either, I am still faffing around with Shunting Puzzle’s . I will see if I can dream up an interesting thread which gets “ Replies”  not just views?  Best wishes.  Kevin

Much Murkle is checked and ready for its first outing of 2018

For anyone going to the Southampton MRS show at Eastleigh this weekend (Longchap & Passed Driver I do know about) I look forward to seeing you there.

Car is packed and ready to go for the journey and setting up later this afternoon.

Almost two weeks have passed since the Southampton show. A really good event and got to meet a few familiar faces and have a natter. This weekend Much Murkle is going to the BRM Festival of British Railway Modelling (bit of a mouthful) at Doncaster Racecourse, hopefully some of you will be there.

Given that it is at Doncaster this appropriate conversation was overheard whilst waiting for the 14.42 to arrive at Much Murkle

This layout has been an inspiration to me for years. The boys and I are really looking forward to seeing it in Doncaster tomorrow! ;)

Best possible wishes to Much Murkle, you and your team at Doncaster tomorrow Nick.

I know it can be hard and tiring at times, particularly on the feet, but MM is one of those inspirational layouts that brings a good deal to most who can get to see it operating.

Bill

Thanks Bill, we had a great weekend.

It was good to meet Mike (Emmess) and his boys. They both had a turn at the controls to do a shunt in the goods yard and proved to be very competent operators. I hope they enjoyed the rest of the show.

Got to say the layout was every bit as good in the flesh as it is on here. Enjoyed meeting folk at the Doncaster show yesterday. (We were the Platform1 MRC members!)
Cheers
Ron

Nick - thank you so much for taking the time out to let my boys "have a go". I am pleased that their training on Pig Hill Yard was put to good use. I would have hated to see the first 100mph+ accident at sleepy Much Murkle.

Your layout is even better in the flesh than I imagined, and I wish I could have stayed to watch it for longer. Unfortunately the youngest was getting a bit tired and we had to rush off.

All the best, and I hope our paths cross again in future!

On the Sunday of the Doncaster show a gentleman appeared and asked if he could take some video of Much Murkle, I of course said yes. It isn't unusual for people to take photos and videos but few have the courtesy to ask.

Most people taking video will follow one train onto the layout and maybe one out and then move on, viciously editing the result into a mix with other layouts before posting on Youtube. This guy was still with us 40 minutes later and he was still there videoing away occassionally stopping to chat with me. I asked him if why he was so interested in Much Murkle to take so much video and he replied it was one of his favourite layouts that he'd seen online and in the modelling magazines and was so pleased to be finally seeing it that he wanted to capture as much as he could. I then asked him if he published his videos on Youtube. He said he hadn't done so as he took them for his own pleasure but he would consider doing so with this one so that I could see it. This is the result of his labours.

Be aware that it is 30 minutes long so sit down with a beverage of your choice and enjoy. 

Much Murkle at Doncaster

That's a fine tribute by Andy, who has great taste and is generous enough to widen the exposure of his favourite model railway.
I enjoyed every minute of it and the pastoral soundtrack perfectly captures the peaceful environment of a 30s branch line.

Best,

Bill
