Hello Kevin.  Good suggestions but I will probably stick with small locomotives.  I have a number of BR London Midland locos.  I fancy running some Jinties through a built-up scene.  No ideas as yet but maybe something akin to the Inkerman Street layout built many years ago by the Model Railway Journal team.

Hi Terry. Many years ago? Sounds familiar, didn’t that come from Coronation Street. But large layouts aside, I hadn’t realised until I saw that video that there was main line steam Loco’s running about with electric Loco’s I thought that they were on branch lines by then . Best wishes Kevin

   Hi Terry.   Thank you again, I really got my underwear in a twist. Just to clarify my follow on question. I have purchased my 4ft concrete fence posts LX 378-00 from scale model scenery, but, no wire. When I opened the envelope, the first thing I saw was “ railway modellers club “ . Now I require the wires.  Best wishes Kevin

If you're looking at the Woodhead line, modelling the tunnel would be quite easy ..... :cheers

Hello Peter.  I envisage just a hill covered in grass with a solitary brick ventilation shaft in the middle.  Every so often a puff of smoke emits from the shaft.  I could automate the smoke emissions which would free me up at exhibitions to wander around and look at the other exhibits or frequent the refreshment area and spend all day reading railway books.  Or I could just set it up on the Saturday morning, go off and do something more interesting and come back at five o'clock to turn it off. No need to waste money on expensive locomotives or other rolling stock.  An additional advantage is that I would not have to engage in conversation with the great unwashed, most of whom appear to frequent model railway shows, present company excluded of course!.

I think that I have hit on the perfect model railway.  I should patent the idea before everybody else steals it.

Sorry, instead of indulging myself with the foregoing waffle I should have given a layout update.  I am still building some Southern wagon kits from Cambrian Rail.  Progress has been a bit slow over the last week or so due to work and the rather hot days that we have been experiencing in the UK.  Still, that is over now and we have returned to our more seasonal summer weather of cold temperatures, rain, hail and thunderstorms.  In fact, perfect modelling weather!  I shall be venturing down to the model railway shed shortly and hope to report some more progress on the wagons soon.

Terry

That's exactly the layout I'd imagined Terry.  :thumbs

Interesting you should mention modelling during the summer months Terry.  Only this morning when SWMBO asked what my plans were for today, my heart sank !

Wives do have a way of making one feel the grindstone is never far away !

I surveyed the grass which, under normal circumstances, would be brown and shrivelled up at this time of year, but is still growing faster than I can cut it.  I immediately realised yet another modelling day was about to be lost to chores.  At least I can sit down on the job .......

"To hear is to obey"

Rumpole, from "Rumpole for the Prosecution" which by chance we watched last night.

I always hope Rumpole would come back on over here, seeing as Leo McKern was an aussie.

Yep, I've slapped me wrist for aiding and abetting you. You're a bad example. ;-)

The second SR wagon has arrived at Farleigh. I managed to get a photo as it stood empty in the goods yard. It must have been in service for some time to get into this state... 



As mentioned once before it is Cambrian Model Rail's C50 - 10 ton five-plank wagon to Southern Railway Diagram 1380.


More soon.


Terry

Thank you Peter.  Very kind of you.

I am starting the next kit this evening - twin bolster wagons, of which more soon.
