the first three piccies ...I like the stormcloud effect of the sheeted skyscene...probably unintentional, I know, but I do like a rain-threatening effect....to many sunny days on our layouts for me.

the bus and pit is excellent.....but crikey, is that road NARROW/ or what?

I'd what directional traffic lights on each end of that bridge please...no room for a car to pass that bus.....off course, most miners were on motorbikes then anyway.....or shanks's pony?

very nice model.

Superb modelling in my opinion. If I can get mine looking like that I will be well pleased.

The yard crane looks just like what I am seeking. What make is it and where did you get it? Also, would it be suitable only for the GWR? Thank you, Robert.

Alastairq,
If you're wondering what that is over the layout....it's for sound absorbtion, I also use the room as a recording studio.

I did mention in my other post that traffic lights were needed at the bottom of that road....but I have just learned that in 1930 the planning department planned it to be one way and someone has stollen the "No Entry" sign.


Robert,
I can't remember where I bought the yard crane, it's a long time ago, and I don't know if it is GWR.

I have to say your layout really is fantastic Phil. I love the picture titled "towards tunnel" as I think that single track passing the signal box just looks great to me. Well actually ALL your layout looks great and I think after all those years you should start "playing" with it again.

Love the guitar row, I have a sunburst guitar exactly like yours although mine is an 'Encore'.

Kind regards

Paul

very nice work. For me it has great "feel" as well as beautifully executed.
looking forward to more photos. Btw is that electrostatic grass in front of the signal box ?

I spent a lot af my time (pre teens) visiting a signal box, it was just across the road from where I lived in a little village, my friend was the signalman, this is late 50's, so I got the feel for railways early on.
It was surprising what went on in those signal boxes, model making, photography, you name it.

Another time in my life I worked as a painter in a colliery so the modelling of the pit scene comes easy.

The grass in front of the signal box is scenic material,I can't remember the make...it's a long time ago when I modelled that.

Phil,

Great looking layout and very well organized. One question tough, did you weather your loco's? If you have, congrats on a very realistic look.

Never mind the railway - I covet the mixing desk, very nice indeed.
