Yes Phil, all droppers are soldered up & tested - not keen on the taste of nickel silver so I use my multi-meter!
Even better is running a loco - that sorts out where the snags are.

Hi Merv,

Your making more progress than me.

The turntable looks really good.

Hi John, I'm not sure how you are measuring progress as I don't have a station nor an impressive viaduct like you!
I don't even have an engine shed yet, mind you plenty of track for locos to sit on but I'm resisting the temptation to put them out yet.

I have also made some coal drops (see pics below) - Brid actually had three roads but I can only squeeze two in and it's a tight fit right at the back. Getting the right perspective for the backdrop might be tricky & of course there's more weathering to do inc. pieces of dropped coal.

Droppers all finished and also ballast down.

2 things I have been avoiding for ages.

Although I can claim to have done about a dozen droppers so far and am experimenting with a system of " on - off " switches for siding isolators.

Siding isolators are a good idea, John.  :thumbs      Sol has used them successfully.

I've got them in my roundhouse Block.  A good place for parking DC locos that still deserve a place on the layout.

My youngest son found some of his old model railway hidden away in the loft recently and asked if he could put the LMS locos together in the loco yard. I know that it's unlikely any of these would have been to Brid, but it makes for a picture though the Scot only just fits on the T/T!

Happy Christmas to all and best wishes for the New Year.

I don't care if they've been to Brid or not Merv, they look great. :thumbs

Apart from them (which look good!) the little loco on the right looks interesting.

It's a Hornby Pug (0-4-0 saddle tank) and the first one I got him ages ago - we've all got to start somewhere!

Yes they are quite cute - I remember first seeing one circa 1960 in the Glasgow area (probably St Rollox) and hitched a ride on the wooden tender - well actually a wagon towed behind used as a coal tender.

Nice to see some locos in the yard Merv.

I haven,t done anything for months now, been too busy in the garden etc etc.

Must get back into the shed soon.

A belated update (after several months on and off - we all have other commitments after all!) I have had to re-lay several sections of the south approach tracks due to curvature problems with my larger locos. There are still one or two sections near to the limit but I can live with that as I am really trying to squeeze a quart into a pint pot!!

The pics below show the general idea - I am now progressing with building Station Road bridge which crosses the southern end of the station and behind the loco shed area.

Good to see your still around.

Tracks look great.

A few pics below to show progress on my shortened version of Station Road bridge at the south end of the station.

The first pic shows the side of the bridge that will lead to a small warehouse - also my first attempt at weeds and wild flowers just to add interest.

The second pic shows the opposite side of the bridge (to the 1st pic) and the steps leading down to the shed area. I based this on memory and a pic with it in the distance, so it's my best guess at what it would have looked like - not sure if the railings would have been black or so rusty?

The last pic shows an overview of the south approach to the station from the bridge.  From this angle it can be seen how I've had to compress the bridge - the real one did have a bend but not as severe as I've had to make it - yet another compromise!
I still have more work to do on it and of course tarmac for the road and paths.

In the distance is 'Brid South' signal box which has yet to be set in position correctly along with lots of other detail around it. It was loaned to me by Sean Hutchinson of the Hessle Model Railway Group. Their layout, whilst not actually portraying Bridlington, will have station and MPD buildings based on Brid. However, they won't have room for Brid South box (it's nearly a foot long!!) but will be using a model of Brid Quay box which Sean has just built. I will at a later stage show more close-up pics of Brid South box which will show off Seans modelling skills - I feel fortunate to have it on my layout as my modelling is not up to his standards - ah well maybe one day?

Your weeds and flowers look superb Merv, as does tghe bridge itself complete with the steps.:thumbs

To save me searching backwards, what's the bridge brickwork made from ?  It looks really good.

Thanks for the comments Peter - the brickwork is made from Slater embossed sheet and microstrip for the stone plinths/capping.

Hi Merv,

The bridge is looking good.

Used to be a pain pushbiking over it.
