Hi all,

Even though I've lots and lots to do, I thought I'd start yet another project...

This real example can be found near the Blackwater junction between the main Truro - Penzance line and the now non-existent branch to St Agnes and Newquay.




The model is built using JW's Scalescenes products on 1.5mm mountcard.



This, the old stone building, and the Roskear Workshop building will all be appearing on a corner Module at Taunton in April, so it's not quite a random project, but I really ought to build the baseboard and lay the track first...

If the first picture is your photograph Stu I would like to put it in to our permanent prototype section if you don't mind.

Stu,Peter,
     If that's the same cattle creep just after the Goonbarrow viaduct,then there's a pic of it on my prototype thread on Chacewater/Newquay,thread 58,which shows it before the stone was replaced by brick.
     Probably when the line was lifted,someone nicked some "free" stone!!

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

Seems it's not the only one where bricks have replaced original materials.
This is a road bridge over a stream just outside my village:

John,

This is the one on the Truro - Penzance main line, just past where the Blackwater Triangle / Newquay branch junction was.

Photo access is on the southbound A30, just south of Chiverton Roundabout, immediately before the layby before the Scorrier exit.

Stu
