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 .....

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.

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:

QUOTE (Roger Farnworth @ 30 Mar 2018, 15:59) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Have the links worked for you?

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.

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
