I have been modelling Hereford's railways in N for a number of years. The vicarage loft has provided excellent space to do this. This has resulted in a growing interest in the North West Route through the Welsh Marches. Thus first blog post in this thread relates to some of the websites I have visited while exploring the potential of the area around Hereford for modelling .....

This next post is the first in a series of posts about the layout that I have been developing in the Vicarage loft over the past few years. The layout includes Barrscourt Station in Hereford, and the MPD in the Barton area of Hereford.
This is next post in a series about a layout representing Hereford in the UK which ius being constructed in N Gauge:

This next post provides a few local photos and a link to an album of relevant photos that I have created on Flickr.
This post provides a link to pictures taken at locations in Hereford on the railway, or close to it:
One of the iconic structures which was part of the station at Hereford was the platform signal box.

The footbridge at Hereford Barrscourt Station has recently been completely rebuilt. Until then the skeleton of the old footbridge remained in place but in a much less photogenic condition than the original. The old footbridge bore some similarities to the one at Gloucester.
Update on my Hereford loft layout. Apologies that the picture quality is not as high as it could be.
This next update is very short - it shows the signal box from the earlier post in position on the layout - just two pictures ....
The main feature of any layout is usually the railway station. I was delighted when my father-in-law, who had his own O-Gauge layout decided to make the station building for me in N-Gauge. ..... This is the first of a series of posts about the construction of the station building:

Hi Roger,

Hi Paul

I have just checked both the last two links and they appear to work, if a little slowly. I can give you the links in a different way as WordPress allows for a longer permalink for each blog post.

The links concerned are:

I hope these work OK.

Best wishes

Hi Roger,

Yes, they have thanks and I must say I am very impressed with your model of Hereford railway station. I know it quite well as I go past it very regularly as I work on Arriva Trains Wales trains down to Carmarthen.

I really enjoyed looking at your links from the very beginning where you had started to build the base boards to go into the loft space and each new step forward

Keep up the good work Roger.

The card models on the layout were constructed from drawings made on 'Paint'. I have just loaded drawings of the Signal Box at the North of the Station and of the Station footbridge onto my blog. The relevant links are:

That's a lot of intricate work Roger and I applaud your attention to detail. The footbridge looks simply stunning and what a lot of parts required to build it up.

Great stuff
