t was just before Christmas, and RAIL’s Managing Editor Nigel Harris commented to me about how people seem to be moving away from large tail-chaser layouts towards micro-layouts. Nigel had clearly seen Chris Nevard’s latest miniature marvel, the pint-sized ‘Brew Street’, which we featured in the January issue (MR230). It measures 65cm by 30cm, and while not the most thrilling layout to operate, it’s yet another wonderful piece of modelling art. Everyone has a different reason for building a layout. ‘Brew Street’ is typical of Chris Nevard; it reused otherwise surplus items so it’s economical, and small enough so that he didn’t get bored building it. That said, the move towards even greater realism continues to gather momentum. Whether this is down to needing to build a layout that matches the standards now being set in model train manufacturing, or because it’s now easier than ever to see what modellers in other disciplines are achieving, it’s impossible to say. But more and more thought is being given to lighting a layout to make it look its best, selecting subdued, natural colours… the list goes on. We can even get off-the-shelf bullhead track from DCCconcepts and Peco to lift the standards of realism even further. But one thing never seems to go out of fashion: the Branch Line Terminus layout. Unless you want crack expresses or 50-wagon coal trains, the ‘BLT’ has all the desirable layout ingredients. Passenger trains, goods trains, shunting, locomotive depots (sometimes even with a turntable) and some kind of local industry or settlement; you can have it all and in a reasonable amount of space. To give you an example,

I

Chris Nevard’s ‘Combwich’ has all these features, including a small quay, and it’s only 14ft long. At one stage we couldn’t move for ‘BLTs’ but they were predominantly Great Western in origin and a little on the twee side. Layouts based on Ashburton and Watlington were particular favourites. However, we’ve scoured the country to bring you ‘BLT’ layout ideas from around the country, from the wilds of the Scottish highlands to the suburbs of London. No longer is the ‘14XX’ the only branch line power you need: LNER ‘J39s’, Midland 0-6-0s, Class 27s and even London Underground ‘S Stock’. We have ‘BLT’ layout ideas to suit most interests. But as we’ve become more receptive to new construction techniques, we’ve also become more open to the concept of modelling somewhere or something a little different. Take the former Furness Railway terminus at Lakeside (illustrated above). In its heyday, it must have been a fantastic place, set against the background of Windermere. It would make an excellent pre-grouping layout… An even more eye-catching one could be set in the 1960s, with a grubby ‘Black Five’ at the head of blue and grey Mk 1s at the only platform still open, as a diesel-hauled demolition train arrives to lift the now redundant sidings, covered in weeds, reminding the traveller of times past. ‘BLTs’ – the possibilities are endless!

Model News BEN ANDO takes a comprehensive look at Bachmann’s new model line-up.

BACHMANN’S BACK ON FORM FOR 2017 T wo locomotives, an EMU and three new wagons: after playing catch-up, Bachmann’s Branchline range for 2017 regained some sparkle that some have considered missing from the previous couple of years of ‘austerity’. Star billing arguably goes to the Johnson ‘1P’ 0-4-4T. The Midland Railway built 205 of these locomotives from 1875 until 1900 and Bachmann has opted for the variant with 18in by 24in cylinders, 5ft 4in diameter driving wheels and 140lbs/sq in boilers. They lasted on London Midland Region duties until 1960. One was even sold to the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway.

The Class 20/3 fills a huge gap in the ranks of ready-to-run diesels. This small but significant sub-class comprised 15 venerable Class 20s rebuilt with flush ends and larger fuel tanks for DRS. Bachmann is only going to replicate the ten modified at Doncaster Works. The new model will have lights and a sound option. The world of third-rail EMUs has been good to Bachmann in recent years, so it’s no surprise to see a new one in the 2017 range. The Class 410 ‘4-BEP’ EMU is an economical choice as it will use much of the existing Class 411 ‘4-CEP’ unit tooling; only a new Buffet Car is required.

FREIGHT-ONLY There is no all-new coaching stock, but there are three new freight vehicles. The first is the BR Mk 1 coach-derived Carflat, based on research carried out for the N Gauge Society’s ‘N’ gauge version. This model is not to be confused with the one being developed by Oxford Rail, which is based on an ex-LMS 60ft coach chassis with 9ft wheelbase bogies. The Bachmann 64ft

Johnson ‘1P’ 0-4-4T No. 58066 rests at Royston on May 12 1956. TREVOR OWEN/COLOUR-RAIL

model will be available with packs of four cars and four vans respectively. These packs will be available separately, and although precise vehicles have yet to be announced, they will be of ‘1970s types’. Also under development is the VEA ‘Vanwide’ ventilated van. Some 550 12t vent vans were rebuilt with airbrakes and improved suspension in the 1970s for use in military traffic as their short wheelbase enabled them to access more MoD depots than the new long wheelbase wagons then coming into service. They lasted in service into the 1990s. Last on the list of newly tooled models is the BR Prestwin. These were designed to carry bulk powders, such as cement, and were used from the 1950s to the 1980s. These are based on the early version with taller silos, so will complement the longstanding Dapol (Airfix) kit for the short silo version.

No sooner had Colas Rail’s 37099 been named after Bachmann Europe’s former Head of R&D Merl Evans (MR231) than a model version appears in the ‘OO’ gauge range. Bachmann will tweak its ‘37’ tooling to accurately reflect 37099’s different headlight position. For each model sold, a donation will be made to LOROS, a charity that provides hospice care in Leicestershire and Rutland.

‘SELLINGDINOSAURS S TOWESTSOMERSET’

Despite daunting trading conditions, Bachmann is upbeat about the coming year, writes BEN ANDO. Increasing labour costs, an ageing customer base and Sterling in freefall post-Brexit: on the face of it, these factors should spell disaster for a British model railway manufacturer. But at the launch of its 2017 range on January 8, Bachmann Europe MD David Haarhaus painted a picture of increasing sales, new acquisitions and - at last of catching up with the huge backlog of previously announced models. “We will build on our core strengths,” he explained. “Innovation, quality and the support for our retail base. This is how we stay competitive in what is a difficult market.” Highlighting its commitment to innovation, Mr Haarhaus said that

Bachmann was the first company to introduce weathering and mass market DCC sound. He said a model like the Wickham trolley (MR230), which was “somewhat traumatic in development” showed the resolve to try new ideas. This, he said, had led to an increase in like-for-like sales, and while retailers might have taken less stock up front, when that sold out they were “coming back for more.” As well as increasing sales, Bachmann says it has been able to freeze prices on the majority of its ranges - despite the impact of Brexit - after what it said had been “tortuous” discussions. ‘00’ gauge prices will increase by an average of 6% on fewer than one in

three models - and some prices have been reduced - while in ‘N’ the increase is slightly lower (4%) but across more models - just over a third of the range. Mr Haarhaus said that recent acquisitions - such as the Proses and Pocket Bond ranges - had been good for Bachmann. It enabled the company to look at new ways to market models from traditionally different disciplines. The ‘Vulcan’ pack that combines two Vulcans with the recently renamed Class 37 was an example of such thinking. “We are [now] selling dinosaurs to the West Somerset Railway,” he concluded. “Whoever thought that would happen?”

Model News small size, Bachmann says that tender drives are a thing of the past and this model will feature a small coreless motor in the body/boiler. A new Class 31 appeared in April 2015, but it only depicted the popular Brush design in original condition. Now, Bachmann is to produce the locomotives as modified in the 1980s with removed bufferbeam cowling, bodyside waist strip and the addition (on some) of Electric Train Supply equipment. Midland, Southern and Western modellers have benefitted from new coaches recently; now it’s the turn of the Eastern Region. Bachmann is

already working on new Thompson stock for ‘OO’ and is to produce four types in ‘N’ - Corridor First, Corridor Third, Corridor Composite and Corridor Brake. Finally, ‘N’ gauge freight enthusiasts are not forgotten with newly tooled versions of the 100t TEA bogie tankers. This tanker has been in the Farish range for many years, but the older model does not compare well with modern releases. The model is based on wagons constructed during the 1960s and 1970s. And finally, the forthcoming Class 40 will be offered with split headcode boxes… and sound.

AMEMBERS-ONLY A MODELMEMENTO T he N Gauge Society is to celebrate its 50th anniversary in fine style - by commissioning its first ready-to-run locomotive. The NGS has chosen the 50t Hunslet 0-6-0DH, built in large numbers from the early 1960s with a 325hp Rolls-Royce C8SFL engine. Not only is it the NGS’s first locomotive, but it will be the first purely industrial design produced ready-to-run in ‘N’. It’s being designed by former Bachmann designer Colin Allbright, and is expected to sport a die-cast body with an injection-moulded plastic cab to maximise adhesive weight. It will have working lights, NEM couplers and lots of separately fitted details. NGS Product Development Officer Mike Hale and Vice President Ben Ando have measured surviving examples at both the Elsecar Heritage Railway and the National Coal Mining Museum. Ten liveries are planned, but it’s not confirmed whether all will make it into production. Like other NGS ready-to-run models, it will only be available to its members.

CONNOISSEUR KIT Connoisseur Models has unveiled its latest locomotive kit: the LNER ‘F7’ 2-4-2T. These 12 machines worked throughout the former Great Eastern network for which they were built, although three were transferred to Scotland. The last was withdrawn in 1948. The kit is a mix of etched brass and nickel

HORNBY’S BEEN WORKING 00 ON THE RAILROAD (RANGE)

GAUGE

Hornby unveiled its new tooling for 2017/18 at Warley 2016, but there was still plenty left to maintain the excitement of its traditional Christmas/New Year announcement. Many favourites return to the catalogue, such as the Drummond ‘M7’, Bulleid ‘Q1’, LMS ‘Royal Scot’ and ‘8F’, while popular newcomers to the range - the ‘Q6’, ‘B12/3’ and Class 71 - are available with new running numbers/colour schemes.

which appears in Great Western Railway’s dark green, along with complementary Mk 3 coaches. The biggest surprise, however, is the expansion of the RailRoad range with locomotives that are now offered as more refined models by other manufacturers. With a new ‘14XX’ (Hatton’s/DJModels), Class 73 (Dapol) and Class 90 (Bachmann) on sale or pending, the ex-Airfix, Lima and 1980s Hornby tooling now join the RailRoad range.

Model News remains part of the main range. Hornby’s TTS budget-sound system is now available in more locomotives, including the ‘Castle’, Maunsell ‘S15’ and Class 08, as well as the RailRoad Class 37 and Class 20. As always, there’s an extensive list of new liveries for passenger and freight rolling stock. Several wagons now carry liveries to accompany popular locomotives in the range, such as the ‘VIX’ ferry van in bauxite to run with the Class 71 while there’s a six-plank open wagon in Huntley & Palmers colours to complement the Peckett 0-4-0ST (see page 20).

OXFORD’S THIRD - PLUS A TRIPLE ard to believe that, just three years ago, there was no Oxford Rail. Now, the ‘OO’ gauge railway manufacturing arm of Oxford Diecast has announced its third locomotive, a trio of all-new wagons and even a small selection of, how shall we say, ‘left field’ items. Oxford unveiled its plan to produce the LNER ‘N7’ 0-6-2T at the London Toy Fair on January 24-26. This is the first time that A.J. Hill’s Great Eastern design - which became an LNER Group Standard - has been offered ready-torun in ‘OO’ gauge. Details have yet to be confirmed but GER, LNER and BR liveries are to be produced.

brakevan, Oxford is to produce its four-wheeled contemporary, the Dia. AA3. Some 500 were built to this diagram between 1899 and 1901. Four guises are planned, with an RRP of £14.95. The ‘Toad’ is one of a trio of new wagons. The others are the MoD ‘Warwell’ bogie flat and the 35t Class A and Class B tank wagons. The ‘Warwell’ is to feature detail differences from military and ‘civilian’ use. One will be offered with a traction engine load and another will come with a newly tooled 1:76 scale Sherman tank. Oxford is to produce its own version of the Charles Roberts/Esso high capacity tank wagons, introduced in the 1950s to carry light (Class A) and heavy (Class B) oil. Oxford is to depict

Oxford Rail is to produce the LNER ‘N7’ 0-6-2T, illustrated by the sole preserved example, No. 69621. GER, LNER and BR liveries are planned, as are sound-fitted versions. RRP is to start from £109.95. MODEL RAIL COLLECTION

Oxford Rail’s most ‘left field’ release for 2017 is a version of Oxford Diecast’s Land Rover 110 station wagon - but modified with a set of rail wheels on each end. Network Rail employs similar ro-rail Land Rovers in Scotland and Oxford’s model will be available in BR, Railtrack and NR colours. The portable access platforms for the Land Rovers will also be available. RRP is £6.95.

More coach colours Oxford Rail’s forthcoming Mk 3 coaches have reached the decorated sample stage, so the time was deemed right to announce three more liveries. BR blue/grey and InterCity colours will now be joined by Composite 11907, First Open 11005 and Tourist Second Open 12015 in ScotRail livery, TSO 12145, FO 11042 and Restaurant First Modular 10206 in Virgin Trains red/ black, while the First Open will also be available in Stobart Pullman purple. RRP is £29.95 each.

Plough’s a first Oxford’s GWR ‘Dean Goods’ is in production and a surprise addition has been made to the initial batch of releases: No. 2534 in unlined green, but with a snowplough, which is the first locomotive-mounted snowplough produced ready-to-run. OR76DG005 has an RRP of £119.95.

MODEL OF THE MO

+ Some incorrect details combinations, incorrect typefaces, problematic on some points, lacks finesse.

It’s destined to play starring roles on rural and tramway layouts - so RICHARD FOSTER tests Heljan’s ‘1366’ to see if it will be a hit, or end up on the ‘B’ list.

-

rom long trains snaking through the streets, a few feet from shops and pubs to the tranquil beauty of the Camel Valley in Cornwall, disturbed by the occasional clanking of the daily goods train, the Weymouth Tramway and the Wenford Bridge branch are two of best-loved lines in southern England, if not the whole country. And one locomotive ties the two together: the GWR ‘1366’ 0-6-0PT. As you can see from the photographs, this machine looks quite different to the myriad GWR panniers. It’s short and dumpy and has outside cylinders along with a very short wheelbase. There are reasons for this

distinctive shape (see ‘Factfile’) but the result was a locomotive that, due to where it worked, seemed an ideal subject for a model. That model is here, courtesy of Heljan. First impressions are generally pretty good. It compares well to photographs and drawings in J.H. Russell’s A Pictorial Record of Great Western Engines Vol. 2 and Brian Haresnape’s Collett & Hawksworth Locomotives. Though the smokebox door stands a bit proud, it has the classic Swindon dished look.

THE WHEEL DEAL Those tiny wheels (just 3ft 8in on the real thing) with their prominent spokes catch the eye too. Particularly neat are

the moulded GWR numberplates, which suggests that they’re separately fitted, etched items. We received two ‘1366s’ for review: No. 1369 in 1920s/1930s livery, with the words ‘Great Western’ on the tanks, and No. 1370 in wartime/post-war green with ‘GWR’ initials. Both share the same specification: out of the box, you get some delicate screw couplings fitted to the coupling hook, while the tension lock units are supplied in a bag of fittings. You get two bags of parts: one containing the tension lock couplers and fire irons and shovels and the other containing lamps, a warning bell (if you’re modelling the Weymouth Tramway)

What’s New

FACTFILE: COLLETT ‘1366’ 0-6-0T wart 0-6-0STs inherited from the sh Minerals Railway. Built in the s, they were a bit long in the tooth by urn of the 20th century, so chward authorised the building of ual copy, including Allan valvegear. ve ‘1361s’, built in 1910, worked de the CMR ‘1392’ 0-6-0STs. 930s, the remaining CMR ‘1392s’ ly needed replacing, so Charles eam put together a modernised with pannier tanks, a Belpaire firebox enson valvegear. Six were built in place ‘1392s’ around Swindon. Nos. 1367/68 and 1370 - later joined No. 1369 - moved to Weymouth, where they proved ideal for use on the tramway. Weymouth shed passed to the Southern Region in 1958. This was ugely fortuitous for the region’s ement as the short wheelbase of the ade them the perfect replacement attie ‘Well Tanks’ on the Wenford

and you ll see the six pin vertical DCC socket. You’ll need a direct mount decoder which sits in the bunker, leaving the footplate clear. Gone are the days of GWR tank locomotive models with a cab full of motor! And don’t worry about the handrails either; they may look like they attach to the cab but they don’t, although they are fixed to the tank sides. Performance was generally good. No. 1369 was smooth and silent, whereas there was a slight growl from the motor of our No. 1370. However, that didn’t stop it hauling five bogie coaches over the 1-in-60 gradient on our test track, and a creditable three over the 1-in-30.

SIZE MATTERS Sadly, being such a wee little model does have its drawbacks. The wheelbase is so small that, at slow speed,

sitated over our insulated outs and stopped dead plastic frogs of the ts and diamond crossings. o use one on a shunting e sure you’ve got live frog y to fit in some kind of evice. s given us some gauge models in recent the Class 05 0-6-0DM olitan Railway electrics ng short of exquisite. Sadly, the ‘1366’ doesn’t match these high standards. Firstly, the finish - often a problem area for Heljan - isn’t great. The green is, perhaps, a little flat and the typeface, including the shading, on both models is incorrect. The biggest disappointment is the lack of finesse. Heljan has offered five ‘1366s’ from as-built condition until the end of their careers. However, unless No. 1369 is to depict its preserved condition, it shouldn’t have steam heating or a whistle shield with ‘Great Western’ lettering. The latter was a later addition and steam heating was, according to the RCTS’ Locomotives of the Great Western Railway, y only fitted to Nos. 1367-1370 at Weymouth. Oh, and talking of steam heating pipes, fitting the tension lock couplers into the NEM pockets is impossible without knocking the pipes off. No attempt has been made to include the front driver’s

Bridge branch. Nos. 1367-69 were transferred to Wadebridge in 1962; their three classmates had been withdrawn by the Western Region by this point. The ‘1366s’ reign in Cornwall was brief and they were withdrawn in October 1964. Nos. 1367 and 1368 were sold to the Woodham Brothers scrapyard at Barry, and were two of the locomotives that never escaped. No. 1369, however, was bought for preservation and is in working order at the South Devon Railway.

y y for a tiny locomotive that is just over 80mm (3¼in) from buffer to buffer. The other striking feature of this little model is the level of detail and decoration which, as Hornby has done so often in the past, raises the bar on ready-to-run locomotives yet again. Hornby’s website gives a lot of information about the Peckett ‘W4’. Its design dates from 1885, and it was built over a period of 17 years, providing a rugged and powerful little locomotive for use in quarries, works yards and factories. There are just four preserved examples and one of them, at the Sittingbourne & Kemsley Light Railway in Kent, was

IN DETAIL The character of this little locomotive has been beautifully captured in a bodyshell which is substantially cast metal with separately fitted plastic details. Boiler mountings vary between locomotives as appropriate, but the H&P model has a chimney with coppered cap and the displacement lubricator for keeping the regulator rod in the smokebox well oiled. The dome and Salter safety valves are very neat and there’s a tiny whistle on the cab roof. These parts are vulnerable to careless handling. Underneath the metal saddletank, there are separate ‘coppered’ plastic injector pipes and black sanding levers. For me, however, it is the cab interior that really takes the biscuit. There’s a fully modelled firebox, complete with the brassed controls on top, with their red handwheels. There’s a separate regulator, and the handbrake standard is fully modelled, complete with the half-round ‘bulge’ in the rear cab wall, into which the handle protrudes. The cab interior walls are finished in cream, with the rear in black. All it needs is a crew to complete it. Separately fitted details include the smokebox door handles and the front and side handrails. Those on the cab

estcott’ has taken Jack Anziani 25 years to build - it’s not that he’s particularly slow at model making, but because his philosophy largely revolves around modelling when he feels like it. Hobbies should be enjoyed, after all. Other commitments have occupied Jack’s interests over the years, and it wasn’t until relatively recently that work on ‘Westcott’ became a pastime priority. He has also amassed a sizeable collection of motive power over the years - much of which is right at home on this LMS themed Georgian-era beauty.

IN A COOL, DRY PLACE The freelance layout permanently resides in a loft, but there’s still work to be done. “It’s 99% finished,” says Jack. “I just need to wire the signalling, install a computer indexing system for the turntable, and finish the point rodding.” He admits that replicating point rodding isn’t the most enjoyable job, and that’s precisely why it’s not yet finished. “You have to be in the mood for it, he explains. “It’s only been within the last eight years that I’ve really focused my efforts on the layout - I’m getting too old to crawl under cars and meddle with aeroplanes. Now I’d rather sit in my attic, modelling.”

The collection occupies the loft alongside ‘Westcott’, although the larger main line machines rarely appear on the layout. As Jack puts it: “They’re a bit big.”

KING OF BACKSCENES

‘Westcott’s’ backscene is a work of art in itself, which is not surprising as it was made by Paul Bambrick. In contrast to ‘Bucks Hill’s’ largely rural backscene, ‘Westcott’s’ townscape is loosely based on High Wycombe. Paul’s 3D backscenes incorporate two-dimensional imagery alongside semi-relief and fully three-dimensional models. The scale of the backscene is dramatically reduced as it draws closer to the horizon line. To achieve this, buildings overlap one another and are built to reflect the reducing depth and scale. Some buildings are three-dimensional and others are simple printouts, folded and used alongside spacers to create varying degrees of relief. If you’d like to find out more about Paul Bambrick’s 3D backscenes, we’d recommend reading his new book Creating a Backscene - A Railway Modelling Companion co-written with John Ellis-Cockell. The 224-page hardback publication provides detailed information on how Paul sources inspiration, plans, and builds his 3D backscenes. It also covers tool selection, working with both photography and paint, how to replicate cloud cover and realistic lighting, and more. You can buy it from www.ian allanpublishing.com

We are also offering Model Rail readers the chance to win a copy of Paul’s book.

others had done and blend my work in and around it accordingly.” Asides from Jack, Paul Bambrick was the most heavily involved: “Paul is a very gifted architectural draughtsman and I suppose, in a lot of ways, we see things very similarly, which made working together relatively straightforward. I also followed Gordon Gravett’s books on modelling scenery [see www.titfield.co.uk/ Wild-Swan/Model-Techniques.htm]. There’s probably a great deal of coincidence and luck in there as well!”

DIVERSE POPULATION The superb figures have been sourced from a variety of retailers, including Andrew Staddon’s extensive ‘O’ gauge range and Detailed Miniatures - which supplied locomotive crews in particular. Jack commissioned a man who specialises in military modelling to paint some of the figures - a contact he acquired from good friend Kevin Wilson, whose figures on ‘Bucks Hill’ received the same treatment. Georgian Buckinghamshire is a somewhat niche subject, but ‘Westcott’ should appeal to modellers across the hobby. It presents a beautiful collection of RTR and kit-built rolling stock,

HOW TO DO IT: SCULPT A FIGURE By Andrew Stadden (www.acstadden.co.uk) My method of making figures is a bit unusual as I sculpt in pewter. I was taught how to do this by my late father, Charles Stadden, who made thousands of figures, from the early 1950s to the mid-1990s, including figures for Tri-ang Hornby, Subbuteo, and Scalextric. The following steps illustrate how I sculpted a figure of Model Rail’s

very own Chris Leigh, to celebrate his 70th birthday. His colleagues provided me with lots of photographs from various angles, along with a rough estimate of his height. I usually place as many pho tographs as possible onto a single sheet of A4 paper, so they are easil accessible at any stage during the modelling process.

1

I decided that the best starting point would be a pewter casting of one of my Albert Einstein figures - a similar size and shape to the lump of metal I needed to work from.

2

Using a hacksaw, I cut off the arms and took a slice out of the neck. The head was bent into the desired position and a small amount of pewter was melted onto the neck - securing it in place.

3

To roughly reshape the torso, I added pewter and smoothed it using a soldering iron. I used a drill with a large cylinder head burr to remove hair and began sculpting the torso - more pewter was added for the gilet.

4

The face was sculpted using smaller burrs, and I started to shape the clothing with details such as pockets. It can take two or three attempts to get faces right, but I was happy with this one straight away.

5

More metal was added for the camera and strap before I roughed out the arms and mug. I set to work sculpting these additions with suitable sized burrs - this is where the figure really takes shape.

7

6

For the face I used my finest drill burrs, then I added the finer details to the body. At this stage, I would usually create a mould, but as this was a one-off commission I progressed straight to the painting.

A final check of the model revealed I had missed off some hair details, which I rectified. The model was then sprayed with Halfords White Primer.

STRANGE MAGIC

In case you’re wondering what this odd-looking contraption is, it’s based on two Ford Model Ts. Jack happened upon a Branchlines kit, which was the basis for this Shropshire and Montgomeryshire Railway Ford Railmotor. “Colonel Stephens was renowned for cobbling together rolling stock,” says Jack. “The Ford Railmotor combined the body of a bus with two Model Ts - one at each end.” To finish the model off, Jack fitted it with a DCC sound decoder. But all is not as it seems… “I contacted a gentleman who lived in the US for a recording of a Model T engine. But, he told me that they’re not very noisy and so suggested a 1930s fourcylinder Chevrolet engine instead,” he admits. “It sounds superb, rattling and banging. It even has the traditional Klaxon horn. My collection features various oddities because I like things that are a little bit different - maybe that says a lot about me?”

HOW TO...

BUILD A MODERN BRANCH LINE TERMINUS The modern branch line terminus may lack the romance of the steam era, but there’s still much to model, argues CHRIS LEIGH. y dislike for the destruction of railway buildings in the aftermath of Beeching is pretty well known, as is my love of the traditional GWR ‘BLT’, or branch line terminus. From Staines West to Stourbridge, and Cirencester to St Ives, there’s scarcely a GWR terminus, rural or urban, that I didn’t love. Most were simply bulldozed after the lines which they served were closed, but the real tragedy was that even those lines which escaped closure generally had their commodious all-weather stations demolished and replaced by nothing more than a minimal shelter. A few lines escaped Beeching’s ‘axe’, and those that did were generally in the West of England, serving coastal

villages which were popular holiday destinations. Two examples, St Ives and Looe, were both reprieved on the grounds that road access was poor and that the villages themselves had narrow streets which wouldn’t be able to cope with the extra road traffic, or were unsuitable for buses. Beeching wanted to close everything beyond Plymouth, but Cornwall would not countenance being a county devoid of railways (having been one of the first to have them). Once the main line to Penzance was safe, it paved the way to saving the branches to Newquay and Falmouth, as well as those to Looe and St Ives.

BARE ESSENTIALS Forced to retain routes which it had hoped to ditch, BR set about a process which it called ‘rationalisation’. In

essence, this removed every feature which was not absolutely essential, from passing loops and signalling equipment to complete station buildings. Branch lines became little more than long sidings. At Looe and St Ives, new platforms replaced the original termini, and the lines themselves were shortened so that complete station sites could be released for redevelopment (Looe) or car parking. At St Ives, the repositioned platform was just long enough for a couple of coaches, and soon had to be lengthened to accommodate the four-car DMU formations which were necessary in the high season. This was particularly crucial once the park-and-ride system was introduced, where visitors parked at Lelant Saltings, close to the main

line junction at St Erth, and took the spectacular 4½ mile ride along the Atlantic coast to St Ives. Such is the peak-time pressure on this service that it warrants a four-car train running at half-hourly intervals. At St Ives, a car park replaced the substantial stone station and, initially, only the most basic form of shelter was provided on the new platform. In more recent years First Great Western replaced this with an equally unattractive modern equivalent.

Given time, our opinions tend to mellow. I’ll never like the modern branch termini in the way that I liked the originals, but I’ve lived with unstaffed ‘bus stop’ halts far longer than I enjoyed the original buildings. I have learned to appreciate the fact that at least the trains still run. My ‘Polwyddelan’ layout is primarily an indulgence in scenic modelling, blending elements of St Ives and Clovelly into a layout built on two 4ft by 2ft 6in baseboards. The railway track plan is minimalist, but I wanted something more than just my original concept, which was the ‘long siding’ arrangement with a RealTrack Class 143 shuttling in and out. I wanted to use multiple units to avoid the need for a run-round loop and I needed to save space, so I quickly realised that any sort of ‘steam era’ station building was out of the question. So, I had to bite the bullet and build a modern station. However, just as I’d interpreted my village to be a bit surreal and ‘chocolate boxy’, so I decided to do the same for my modern station. If you read the ‘back story’ in Model Raill 226, you’ll have seen that the Polwyddelan branch is now privately owned by the estate, which owns the village. However, the branch did not escape closure by Beeching and its station was demolished. The impact of this on the numbers of visitors to the village, which has poor road connections, was such that the estate bought the railway and sponsored a preservation group to run it. The group was quickly overwhelmed by the frequency of service required in peak times, so the main line operator - First Group/GWR was contracted to run the peak service, with the preservation society running the off-peak trains. This story provides an excuse to run the trains

that I want to run. It’s my railway and I’ll run what I like - a far cry from the usual levels of authentic operation that I promote in Model Rail. I trust that this preamble explains how I can run a GWR Class 150/2 alongside a ‘preserved’ Class 205 ‘Thumper’ and a blue and grey Class 108. In addition, the estate produces china clay, which is moved out in ‘clay hood’ wagons worked by a Class 25. It’s a Bachmann sound-fitted model which I really like, so I had to have an excuse to run it occasionally. Finally, to round off this fairy tale, the estate’s very wealthy owner occasionally commutes to London with his entourage in Mk 3 sleepers, which are attached to the Up ‘Night Riviera’, providing an excuse to run a couple of those prettily finished Hornby Mk 3s and a Bachmann Class 57.

ULTERIOR MOTIVE There is also an ulterior motive (or two) to all this. I needed to make operation of the trains more interesting for my own benefit. Plus, I wanted to test my skills with DCC control and, perhaps, to demonstrate simple manoeuvres with DCC if the opportunity arose at exhibitions. For instance, the Class 25 could bring in china clay empties, uncouple, and the wagons would then be collected by the estate’s shunter. Similarly, the Mk 3 sleepers could be brought in as empty stock by a Class 08, before being collected by the Class 57. Such operations would involve two locomotives and some simple coupling and uncoupling, for which I intended to stick with the tensionlock couplers. (However, the frustrations I’ve experienced more recently with tension-locks, and the ease with which my Canadian ‘HO’ stock with Kaydee couplers operates on the same layout might lead me to

‘PROPER STATION’ Even a devotee like me would have been hard-pressed to justify retention of the Liskeard & Looe Railway’s ramshackle wooden building at Looe, but it was unique and had a rustic charm in the style of a Colonel Stephens station. Its replacement is so far up the line that it is actually at the first quarter-mile post, and a sizeable trek from the seafront. It does, however, boast a ‘proper’ station building unlike most of the others. Truncated bits of the original GWR buildings survive at Newquay and Falmouth, but passengers only have access to a bare platform with a shelter.

switch to these on the handful of items that will need to couple or uncouple on the layout.)

TRACK AND FIELD There’s nothing special about the track or the track plan. I have used Peco Code 75 flat bottom rail because that is what I use on my ‘HO’ Canadian layout and it makes sense to standardise. That way I can always keep a few spare lengths of track and the odd turnout in stock in case something fails, or gets damaged and has to be replaced. The track plan which I eventually adopted was the simplest of my three proposals and it was essentially a matter of ‘Hobson’s Choice’.

None of the others would fit the available space. There is also nothing special about the way that the track is laid or ballasted, other than to draw attention to my use of Woodland Scenics Track-Bed. This was essential for sound-deadening on a plywood baseboard top, but it gives the track a deep-ballasted main line look. In the station area particularly, it was necessary to disguise this in order to make it look like a mature branch line. The Track-Bed also has the effect of raising the track by several millimetres, which means that kit-built platforms will be too low unless something is done to compensate for that.

I was intending to use my established platform-building method, a lattice of card strips faced with Wills SMP200 stone sheets, so I could simply increase the vertical dimension of the strips by 5mm to compensate for the thickness of the roadbed. I wanted my platform to look like it was the last surviving part of the original station, but resurfaced with more modern block paving. This would be easy to accomplish with Wills SMP204 granite setts. I have a neck ailment which prevents me from working underneath layouts, so I tend to do as much wiring as possible from above the board. For this reason I use self-adhesive copper tape for my DCC bus. The tape is

HOW TO DO IT: BUILD A MODERN STATION 1

Flashback - Day One:: My original rough plans with the chosen track layout are mapped out roughly on a scale plan of the boards. I then laid track pieces out on the board, ensuring that no turnouts were on the baseboard joint.

I filled between the two tracks with offcuts of 5mm thick foamboard to raise the ground level slightly, and filled round the edges and any gaps with Polyfilla. It was given a preliminary smoothing with a small spatula.

7

Wills SSM316 palisade fencing pack is fairly new - and came out just at the right time. The mouldings are superb, with the trefoil tops cleanly represented. I made small holes in the Polyfilla and glued the fencing in place.

2

Flashback - Day Two:: The foamboard bases for the streets are in place and work is in progress on installing the lattice of card strips which will form the platform. The platform front is faced with Wills stone sheets.

5

I then smoothed the Polyfilla with a finger damped with water. This was particularly important for the area which is going to be gravel yard, but less so round the edges where there will be grass and weeds.

8

3

The platform was surfaced with Wills sheets. These were cut to form the curved platform edge and fitted round the remnants of the Heljan platform surface, as the shelter was recovered from an earlier project.

6

I then filled in around the siding as this area is going to be overgrown. I installed the electric lights at this point, but keeping the cut-outs clear for access to the copper tape. Clearances were checked by frequent test running. To complete the end of the station parking lot, I used the large double vehicle gates included in the pack and just cut off the pedestrian side gate. I placed the fencing carefully so that the gates fitted neatly in the gap.

INTEREST RATE

As I’m committed to completing the layout and this series of articles, I had to find a way to make the station more interesting. A £5 accessory gave me the answer. I bought one of Train-Tech’s bufferstop lights. It’s an inverted ‘Y’ fitted with two red LEDs. It clips between the rails and provides two vertically mounted red lights

I prefer to model real locations. It eliminates the need for imagination. I simply model what I see. ‘Polwyddelan’ station is proving difficult. I’m writing this as I build it, and I’m finding that my enthusiasm for this layout and my interest in completing it are on a bit of

which mimic the modern lights installed at the stop blocks of branch lines, like the one I was modelling. I was so impressed that I bought a second one for the siding and I then realised that I could make the station area more interesting with lights. I went on to install the two Heljan lamp posts from the Tackley Halt kit and a couple of street lamps by TrainSave (Gaugemaster), left over from an earlier project. Completing the picture are the Kernow Class 205 ‘Thumper’ and Bachmann Class 25, both of which have lights and sound, plus a Hornby Class 153 with a Train-Tech light unit installed. The latter is battery-powered, movementactivated and features the doorclosing bleeper sound.

The yard was painted to represent a gravelled hard standing area. I mixed some Woodland Scenics earth colour with Green Scene’s white textured paint to produce a light, sandycoloured surface with a bit of texture to it.

Undiluted Woodland Scenics earth colour was used around the edges and areas which would be covered with vegetation. The late, great Jack Kine (of Michael Bentine’s It’s a Square World) taught me to outline such areas in dark brown.

To weather the granite setts on the platform, I used Woodland Scenics slate grey, diluted with water, brushed on and wiped off with a tissue to leave a little in the recesses. Ratio GWR spear fencing was updated with a repaint in blue.

14

The shelter and cycle rack were Heljan’s 2501 Tackley Halt kit, along with the supplied platform. Plenty of liquid polystyrene cement blended it into some Wills paving sheets and the granite setts.

Nameboards came from the Heljan kit, but could easily be made from styrene sheet and plastic rod. Check the spelling of your station name - ‘Polwydellan’ should be ‘Polwyddelan’, but BR sometimes used old-style spellings.

Another minor mistake - two fence posts side by side. The Ratio lineside fencing needs one post removing with a sharp knife before joining pieces together. It only took a minute to put this right, but it makes a big difference.

15

It is important to check clearances when placing items such as fencing at the lineside. The clearance here is tight and could be even tighter for a steam locomotive with outside valve gear.

Next comes the fun bit - deciding where to put all the vehicles, details and figures. I have a surfeit of buses, so I found homes for three of them. There’s evidently a bit of vehicle preservation going on in Polwyddelan.


HOW TO DO IT: DETAIL YOUR STATION 1

The Heljan lamp post carries a ‘retro’ BR sign (a feature of several Cornish stations) featuring the original spelling of the name. The station signs were produced from a Scalescenes download.

3

I made planters, based on those at St Erth, from balsa wood to cover the bases of the Heljan lamps.

I have maintained a traditional look by using Ratio GWR ‘spear’ iron railings but painting them in a modern bright blue using a car paint aerosol from Halfords. The shelter is by Bachmann Scenecraft.

‘WESTERN’ BRANCH TERMINUS INSPIRATIONS FALMOUTH The Falmouth branch story is quite complex. Opened throughout by the Cornwall Railway in 1863, the influence of Brunel (who died in 1859) was nevertheless evident in its viaducts and stations, not least at the original Falmouth terminus. The round-topped canopy is original, as is the nearer stone part of the platform, which has been resurfaced and a modern rear wall and glazed lean-to added. Everything else, including an exquisite Brunel station building, was demolished in the 1970s when the branch was cut back to a new terminus closer to the town centre. That terminus, a concrete platform which re-used parts of the closed Perranporth Beach Halt, was renamed The Dell, and later Falmouth Town, when the original terminus was re-opened as Falmouth Docks. Points to note include the substantial but very plain original columns, the modern cycle storage racks and the brick GWR platform extension. The red conduit (indicated) protecting cables under the track would be a handy way to disguise some of my above-baseboard wiring. CHRIS LEIGH

LOOE Proof that a perfect ‘old style’ branch line scene is still possible, as 153368 loads passengers and a bicycle at Looe on June 30 2009. This station is the third incarnation, replacing a bus shelter on the original platform, and is a quarter-mile short of the original end of the line, but it has a neat and substantial little station building. CHRIS LEIGH The station at Looe has a building with waiting area and ticket facilities plus car parking, and is strongly marketed, remaining one of the great Cornish branch line rides. CHRIS LEIGH

The Heljan lights came as part of the Tackley Halt kit and may no longer be available. Similar products are available from Kytes Lights and DCCconcepts.

The fine wires from the TrainSave streetlamp are connected to the DCC bus tapes. The bufferstop is by Train-Tech, and you can see another of that company’s modern stop lights behind it.

STATION FURNITURE

Two small grids placed five sleepers apart are the sensors for the TPWS (train protection and warning system) at Barnstaple. These are designed to apply the brakes if a train enters the platform too fast to stop. The first is the trigger and the second the actuator - the single larger grids were found to be affected by the proximity of the platform. CHRIS LEIGH

Signals on branches are unusual these days, but installation of a passing loop at Penryn on the Falmouth branch resulted in the need for modern LED lights. The old platform (right) is disused, but Up and Down trains use separate sections of the new platform. CHRIS LEIGH

Those who fund and carry out station and line upgrades often receive publicity through lineside notices. CHRIS LEIGH

PROęECT

DABBLING WITH DAPOL PAUL A. LUNN breathes new life into three classic kits, and shows you just how easy it is to convert them into other buildings. e’ve all seen them in model shops: plastic kits of wagons, buildings, lineside structures and even locomotives in bags. You might think that the prominent Dapol logo on the simple, folded header card means that these are relatively new products, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Dapol purchased Airfix’s ‘OO’ gauge Trackside kits in 1993. However, the range included tooling from longdefunct Rosebud Kitmaster Ltd. After the firm ran into financial difficulties in 1962, its tools were acquired by Airfix. Some of Dapol’s models use tooling that dates from the 1950s! I’m sure that there will be few modellers who haven’t tackled one of these kits at one time or another

W

Despite their age, the quality of some kits is still extremely good. Some wagons in particular have, arguably, never been bettered. I always like to see the potential in modelling products and these kits are no exception. Sure, you can build a realistic church or shop straight from the box - or bag - but could you turn these kits into anything else? Inspiration for this feature came from the PSL Complete Guide to Model Railwayss by Michael Andress, in which he demonstrates how to create a lineside factory using the engine shed kit. It showed just how successful the conversion could be, and it’s a practice that many have followed; Geoff Forster, to name but one, used the water tower as part of a superb minimum space

creamery for his ‘Llangunllo’ layout. Given this issue’s branch line theme, I decided to create a trio of suitable buildings, some from the most unusual sources. Why dabble with a Dapol kit? Because it provides great opportunity for personalisation and the result can be quite impressive. Even the most complex modification is more cost-effective than a similar resin cast offering, and you’ll have the satisfaction of having created something unique. There’s an added bonus too, in that you’ll have numerous spare parts left over; walls, doors, huts, and columns and so on, ready for other dabbling projects. Not bad value for a range of building kits that cost less than a tenner!

1: THE EASY ONE: Severn Beach-style station Severn Beach station bears a similarity to Dapol’s C010 Sta Hall and C014 Canopy. They’ of course; they’re different le canopy fixes to the building, to the canopy’s outer edge a a graceful curve to the botto canopy end fascia. However, kits shows how compatible t station building has been ass as per the instructions, save the omission of windows and canopy (used in the church/station makeover), and requires only modest alteration to bring it closer to modern standards. The cano however, is quite a different t requiring major changes to t girder structure.

HOW TO DO IT: CREATE SEVERN BEACH STATION 1

In order to create space under the canopy, the columns and their respective lattice girders need to be moved to the outer edges. Start by removing the fixing brackets with a sharp blade.

2

Don’t try to cut the fixing brackets flush with the main piece. Leave a little waste so that you can finish off using descending grades of wet and dry paper to achieve the smoothest surface.

TOP

TIP

The column locating pins on the longitudinal girders are particularly vulnerable during this process, as I found to my cost, despite Airfix plastic being much harder than that of Dapol, which uses recycled material.

Position the girders as shown, a little inwards of the fascia boards. Make sure that everything is square. Compare it with the prototype photograph and it looks like a decent representation of the real thing.

FINISHING TOUCH Most of the station building can be assembled as per the instructions, but it’s worth undertaking some refinement in a number of areas. This is the toilet privacy screen. I’ve only thinned the top edge of the

short side rather than the whole side in order to preserve the plank detail. You won’t notice the difference from most viewing angles, but if you’d prefer, thin the whole screen and re-scribe the plank detail.

Larger parts can become warped, either during the manufacturing process or from being stored under a heavy weight. Don’t worry - straightening distortions is not a difficult task with a sink of hot water. Work on the principle that the thicker the plastic, the hotter the water needs to be, and the longer it will need to be submerged. Once the warmed plastic is flexible, flatten the pieces out and leave to cool. Whatever you do, be careful not to burn your hands!

49


2: THE INTERMEDIATE ONE: Tetbury-type shed Now for something a bit more involved: the GWR engine shed at Tetbury, with the water tank in an elevated position at the rear. It’s a classic building and has appeared on countless GWR branch line layouts. I tried to re-create this classic structure using the C005 Water Tower and two C007 Engine Shed kits. The combination appears more complex than it really is. I carefully removed all the windows and the rear end gable wall, strengthening the roof with a roof truss sourced from another kit. When appraising any kit or combination of kits, I usually start with either one or both of the following processes: place the parts close together to get a feel of what might be achieved. And, for more accuracy, I sometimes make a drawing, tracing round the required larger parts onto cardboard, then I mock the whole thing up in 3D. This is especially useful where complex modifications are required. Not only does this give you a chance to work out any technical issues, but it also allows you to accurately assess how the whole thing will look when it’s finished. It’s a valuable technique in terms of getting balance and volume right - some components work well as they are, others will need reducing or enlarging to look right.

50

HOW TO DO IT: KIT-BASH TETBURY SHED 1

2

Start with the long side wall that doesn’t have the notice board and light fitting on it (this is readily apparent with the kit in front of you!). Cut the wall in two, either side of the thick central pillar. You don’t need the central pillar - but don’t throw it away.

Clean all edges, getting them as smooth as possible. Don’t forgot to flatten the top edge, ready for the new roof. Add plastic tabs for strength. In this case, I’ve made a butt joint from a piece of leftover wall - if you use this technique, make sure they’re as accurate as possible.

Expert Tip Keep an eye out for partially completed kits on eBay. This will help keep costs down, and may speed up your construction.

5

6

I wanted to see if I could improve the windows. I thinned down the frames with a file and set them the opposite way round. This gives you thinner glazing bars and a deeper recess. The left-hand one has been modified - doesn’t it look much better than the original (right)?

8

The main doors are substantially reworked, not only in thinning visible edges but by increased height so as to dispense with the unsightly gap at the bottom edge. If memory serves right it’s there to allow Tri-ang Series 3 track underneath - appropriate at the time but no longer so.

9

7

I’ve been careful to work out the top hinge position so it will line up with the top fixing hole on both sides. The lower hinge on the existing door needs moving down to match the fixing holes. For visual effect, I’ve added the suggestion of hinge straps using Microstrip.

10

I’ve been able to find use for most leftover parts, with the exception of the Water Tank ladders. With rungs a scale 1ft 3in apart and handrails 3in thick they’re no-hopers! Maybe I’ll be able to use them as a lightweight lattice girder, or something else, for a future project.

The body of the water tank must be shrunk to match the shed width. I’ve removed approximately 28.5mm for the sides, slightly less off the roof at 24mm, cut away from the end opposite the access hole. That just leaves the bottom, which needs reducing to fit the new sides.

The safety railing uses existing locating lugs (grey plastic) and Microrod for posts and rails. You’ll find the assembly much easier if you fix the components in place temporarily - here I’ve used Blu-Tack.

11

12

13

I’ve thinned the main rooftop sliding access panel and added a folded-over section to suggest that, when closed, it would cover the entire aperture.

The small platform was made from the spare locomotive shed notice board, (Part 23), reduced to the width of three planks and shortened by 2mm. Supporting leg frames were made from Water Tower parts 12 to 15.

The short Ratio 451 ladder, between the platform and tank access hole, is fixed to two short pins at the top and a fixing bar, made from spare ladder handrail, to the floor.

14

15

The main Ratio ladder will need restraining arms, representing metal fixing bars, back to the brickwork, a tad below the gutter and to the plinth near ground level. Have a look at Tetbury shed and you’ll see how the real ladder is arranged. I’ve fitted an overflow pipe, with a rightangled bend, using Ratio 538.

17

...and allow you to mount it to the wall. Now assemble the water crane. The short rightangled pipe bend and larger circular fixing to the tank side are both made out of bits of cast-off sprue.

3: THE HARD ONE: The church station Can you work out what kit forms the basis of this station? Yes, it’s the C029 Church kit! This is the most ambitious project. It combines almost the entire kit, including the canopy, and supports from the C014 (Booking Hall) along with the lamps from C005 (Engine Shed). The result is a small wayside standard gauge station or a larger terminus for a narrow gauge railway.

18

To make the support bracket more realistic, drill holes with a small bit and refine them with a round needle file. Add an extra flange on both sides from Microstrip.

19

In order for the water crane to sit centrally over the window, the mounting protrudes slightly, bottom right, and as such will need packing. I used a small section of scrap brickwork.

20

The finishing touches - Wills SS55 window arches. I’ve used the largest radius single course, cut from a set of three reducing radii and sanded them thinner both on the inside plain surface and on the front, reducing brick thickness as much as I can without losing course lines altogether.

52

HOW TO DO IT: TURN THE CHURCH INTO A 1

2 modifying the church. The bell tower will go, as will those tell-tell buttresses (hence the hole in the gable end wall). The door and window-less church wall will become the station’s front wall.

Identify major changes, working out what it’ll take to make the building look like a station and not a church - and to create a pleasing, railway-like look. Here, I’m checking the position of doors and windows from the Station Booking Hall kit before cutting the apertures.

3

The length of the main building is governed by what you have left when you’ve removed the church tower. A razor saw and wooden bench hook (homemade in this case) are ideal for removing unwanted sections of roof and both main walls, which are now about 11.5cm long.

4

Remove all remaining buttresses and clean up each hole, making sure that all angles and edges are square in readiness for a scrap wall patch. Plastic Weld will help fuse parts together so as to minimise any joint lines.

Pare away nearly all of the mounting positions on the wall except for the two vertical ones either side of the door aperture. Start with a knife and then finish with a grinding wheel in a minitool.

I used the roof supplied and coping stones. Move or ream out holes as required. End coping stones were left original width, using full-length pieces on the visible side. Make extensions from scrap to match those from the bell tower end.

The church’s greatest weakness is in the rear entrance porch, which is exceptionally low, but raising its position is quite straightforward. First, though, remove the church-like doorway with a sharp blade.

Assemble the porch and file out a bit of the roof ridge tile in order to accommodate the gutter underneath the main roof. Patch in spare sections of stonework at the lower edge, but don’t fix the porch in place just yet…

Place the double doors from the booking hall kit over the main entrance. Trace the edges onto the former church wall and make the aperture with a knife or cutting disc. Secure the porch and affix the additional scraps of stone wall.

Create new quoin corner stones on the rear elevation’s left-hand corner from thin plastic sheet. I traced an existing moulded corner to ensure similarity in style and size.

12

Remove stonework detail to accommodate the quoins. I’ve placed notice boards over unwanted holes; a window near the porch and the one made by removing the gable end buttress. Note new stone sections at the bottom of the porch. Using the roof top ribs as a guide, cut two sections from the Station Booking Hall canopy, leaving a rib at the new end. Remove the end valance from the discarded piece and fit this back in place on the shortened canopy. To do this you’ll need to make a rebate on the underside of the cut end, wide enough to take the original end valance. File the valance to the correct height. With this done, position the underside brackets so they align with stonework, and don’t foul a door or window.

I’ve tried to make these projects as economical as possible. As a result I���ve extended the fall pipes, using the ‘T’-shaped bell hanger from the church kit. I’ve used them upside down for a more accurate fit to the guttering and created a shoe at the bottom by cutting as shown.

I’ve pinched a couple of spare locomotive shed lamps, one for over the porch and the other on the right-hand end front corner. As made, they stand out too far for this application, so I’ve reshaped the arm using hot water and cut it shorter to improve the effect.

You can see how overall components, from three different kits, have come together in one pleasing composition. The chimneys come from SSMP226 brick sheet with a single added string line from Microstrip; tops and pots from Wills SS46, building details pack A, and a Ratio 140 signal box chimney kit. Ridge tiles have been trimmed on both long edges to meet up with the top row of slates on both sides.

INSPIRATION

ROUTE AND BRANCH FREIGHT

Golant is one of the prettiest railway locations in Britain, but it only hosts china clay trains from the port on the Fowey estuary to the main line at Lostwithiel and on to nearby quarries. This line originally continued beyond Fowey, curving back round to Par. Its passenger service was withdrawn in 1965. 66023 crosses the causeway at Golant with 37 loaded CDA wagons from Parkandillack on October 10 2016. RON WESTWATER

This viaduct formed part of the GWR’s route from Madeley Junction, on the WolverhamptonShrewsbury main line, to Buildwas and beyond into mid-Wales. It might look unassuming but it skirted round Abraham Darby’s blast furnace, the first in Britain to be coke-fuelled, and a key milestone in the Industrial Revolution. The stretch of line, despite its historical significance, was only retained to bring coal - and latterly biomass - to Ironbridge power station. Sadly, it was switched off in 2015 and the line is in mothballs. Darby’s furnace is to the left as GBRf 66706 Nene Valley hauls a load of biomass on October 1 2015. DAVID BAGNALL

Nuclear material between power stations and Sellafield can only be moved by rail and it’s one reason why many miles of rural branch line have been retained. The closure of some power stations, such as Trawsfynydd and Sizewell have left their branch lines in mothballs, but Dungeness still ensures that the former SECR branch from Appledore across the Romney marshes plays host to trains.

The beautifully windswept coast of North Yorkshire is known for its fossils… but one oft-forgotten ‘fossil’ is the remains of the North Eastern Railway line that connected Middlesbrough, Whitby and Scarborough. Today, it only runs to Boulby potash mine and British Steel’s Skinningrove plant to Teesside; Class 66s twist and turn their way along the coast so far, and the rest of the line south to the resorts of Whitby and Scarborough is just a memory. 66953 passes Guibal fan house from the former Huntcliff iron mine on September 11 2009.

Buxton is the centre of a rather confusing mass of passenger and freight-only branch lines that originated with both the Midland and London & North Western Railways. Passengers use the former LNWR Stockport-Ashbourne as far as Buxton; beyond, it’s freight only as far as the quarries at Hindlow and Dowlow. Freight trains take the circuitous route around Buxton on the former Midland Main Line metals, once used by expresses including the ‘Midland Pullman’, but now confined to carrying copious quantities of stone. With Buxton FC’s ground on the land to the right of the cutting, 60047 snakes its way through the town en route to Dowlow, on the former LNWR line, on June 6 2007. P. MASON

BREATHE NEW LIFE IN Photography: PETER MARRIOTT

In a classic example of art imitating life, a new real life freight service prompted PETER MARRIOTT to bring an old layout out of retirement. But exactly how do you revitalise a tired and faded old model railway? built this 132cm by 45cm layout years ago. I called it ‘Crianlarich Lower’, but only the inspiration and feel came from the former Callander & Oban Railway location. The track plan is fictional and depicts a small timber loading yard plus a sideloading platform with a runround loop that is located some way from the passenger station. My layout was set in autumn, and

I enjoyed it for a while before it got replaced with another project. It was hidden away for several years but, in another example of art imitating life, I decided to give it a new lease of life.

BACK TO THE WOOD The inspiration for this came about when Colas Rail started to run timber trains on the mothballed Heathfield branch in south Devon.

Why couldn’t the company introduce a new timber flow to my layout? Timber panel specialist Kronospan took timber from the stations at Arrochar and Crianlarich, near Loch Lomond, until 2009. My new and revitalised layout envisages that Colas Rail is contracted by Kronospan to haul even more timber from the West Highlands to Chirk (North Wales), providing a significant environmental

Here is part of the existing layout showing the lineside foliage in its autumnal colours. The lineside undergrowth was originally made from poly fibre then sprinkled with autumntinted scatter materials.

I covered all of the existing lineside foliage with poly fibre (don’t worry about the colour). Tease the fibre out thinly and fix it to the landscape with hairspray.

TO A LAYOUT benefit by taking lorries off the Scottish roads. While the track work and the basic scenic elements on the layout didn’t change, I wanted to make various visual changes that would make the layout look quite different to its previous incarnation. This included setting the season to summer, adding more yard lights and new signage, removing the piles of stored timber and replacing them with a Colas portable building, using figures with high visibility jackets and setting it up to depict the reopening of the Crianlarich Lower Timber Loading Facility.

LAYOUT RESTORATION

Give the poly fibre a good coat of hairspray and cover it with green summer scatter material.

4

The original layout was modelled to represent autumn, with golden leaves on trees and the foliage and weeds bearing autumnal tints. I wanted my layout to look ‘revitalised’ and nothing says ‘revitalised’ like the greenery of late spring and early summer. The autumnal tints had to go. i also wanted to restore some of the details, replacing them with new items - after all, the range and quality of products has changed quite a bit since I originally built the diorama. The track has been ballasted and weathered and fine sand sprinkled on top of white glue spread around the siding. These are basic steps that would be applied to most goods sidings.

A piece of tree bark has been cut into tiny pieces with a sharp craft knife over a selfsealing cutting board. I chopped up the pieces as small as I could to represent spilt timber.

8

This timber loading siding features plenty of tree debris and weeds (static grass fibres). Once the glue has dried it goes clear and seals all the bits of bark onto the layout.

The chopped tree bark pieces have been sprinkled around the track of the siding. I flooded the area with diluted white PVA and it dried clear.

9

The logs seen in the picture were made from twigs found in the garden and on woodland walks. A strip of weeds made from static grass fibres planted with an electrostatic tool runs alongside the main line.

The same siding after the glue has dried, showing the weeds that have been planted around this little-used siding. The grass tufts are by Noch and the laser-cut cardboard ferns by Model Scene.

There were some unwanted piles of timber on the platform. I inserted a flat screwdriver blade under one corner of each pile then gently twisted the blade.

The dried blobs of glue looked a bit messy, so I ran some Tamiya modelling sandpaper over the platform. I used a portable vacuum cleaner to remove the debris.

I imagined that Colas would provide a portable building to serve as a staff shelter. This one is a re-painted Bachmann Scenecraft model. The foliage behind is now a summery green shade.

To change the look, I covered the platform and access road with Train Terrain fine sand. I painted Scenic Glue on the platform then sprinkled the sand on and left it to dry fully overnight.

A NEWSWORTHY EVENT Rail re-openings always generate media interest, and I thought that the return of timber trains to Crianlarich would be a newsworthy event. There are plenty of excellent miniature figures on the market today, but the real driving force for this scene was Noch’s pack of

photographers with working flash cameras! You might see it as a bit gimmicky, but I think that anything that livens up a layout or adds variety is a good thing‌ as long as it’s not overdone. Noch produces lots of different figures that feature lights, from welders with

flickering welding gear to a modern station despatcher with a green ‘right of way’ wand. The photographer pack comes with six photographers but only three have working flashes. All the electronics are supplied and all you need to do is connect the circuit board it to a 16V AC power source.

HOW TO DO IT: CREATE A RAILWAY RE-OPENING SCENE 1

The six figures, plus the wiring, come in plastic blister packaging. Three figures come without working cameras. Two figures come with cameras that flash, and there’s a tripod with a flashing camera on the top.

2

The supplied circuit board is designed to plug into the 16V AC outputs on a standard controller. You can extend or shorten the wires using wire cutters and a soldering iron, where applicable.

3

The photographers are connected to the circuit board with very fine copper wires. Gently unroll the wires - they’re about 11cm long.

5

Find somewhere on the layout to hide the circuit board. It might look like a horrific scenic carbuncle but you won’t see it behind the hedge. Drill a 10mm hole for the wires.

I held the figures and tripod down with a little clear tape and a blob of Tacky Wax on the base of the feet. The tape will be covered with fine sand.

7

Other figures are from Bachmann Scenecraft, Noch and Preiser. Never fix pre-painted plastic figures to your layout without giving them a thin wash of black paint first. This will highlight detail and remove unrealistic shine.

The two cameramen working simultaneously. Arguably, they should be wearing high-vis jackets at such an event!

9

I made various signs on my PC using a Colas logo I copied from the company’s website and by matching the typeface as best I could.

The signs I made were printed on high-quality paper then stuck to a sheet of thin cardboard, taking care not to leave any air bubbles.

BUILD A BETTER LOG PILE Timber loading sidings are easy to reproduce in miniature and do not require much space. The basic elements in the Scottish Highlands are a rail siding (or two) with road access, plus an area of level ground adjacent to the siding(s) to store logs and to lift them onto the

1

wagons. Timber can be loaded onto the wagons either from ground level or from a raised platform, or directly from a lorry with a body-mounted crane. My original timber loading facility featured stacks of balsa wood strips, but I wanted to

replace it with something a bit more realistic. After a wander around my garden I collected a small collection of suitably sized twigs which, once trimmed and shaped with a sharp blade, were assembled into a stack and fixed, piece by piece, with PVA.

HOW TO...

BUILD A DIOR What do you do if you like lots of different branch lines but don’t have space to model them all? PETER MARRIOTT suggests that a diorama can satisfy your modelling urges!

he West Highland Extension to Mallaig; the former Callander & Oban line from Crianlarich and the exHighland route to Kyle of Lochalsh; are they branch lines or main lines? The definition, or rather classification, is unclear… but it’s all academic, as all three lines are set in some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. These lines are eminently modelleable, but you need a lot of space to do justice to that epic landscape. I love these lines, but I don’t have the space to model them properly... The diorama is the answer, as you can at least capture a very small bit of it. My favourite Scottish era is the BR ‘Large Logo’ period, with big diesels hauling short trains of two or three coaches and when the Radio Electronic Token Block signalling system had been installed. I wanted both, as well as a hint of mountain and loch. Here’s how I got on.

TASK 1: Build the base Scotland’s railway was built through the landscape, clinging to the edges of valleys, with towering rocks on one side and deep drops on the other. The key to creating this look in miniature is to raise the trackbed from the baseboard surface and Woodland Scenics Foam Risers enable you to achieve this. Raising the trackbed means you can move above and below track level. This lightweight foam material is perfect for a portable layout.

This diorama measures just 60cm by 25cm and is an easily storable slice of Scotland. However, from a photographic point of view, it’s a bit too small. I should have included a bit more foreground - at the moment, the train looks like it’s dropping over the edge of the baseboard, rather than running along the edge of a valley! It’s important to keep within the parameters of a diorama, but a few extra inches would make all the difference.

HOW TO DO IT: BUILD THE LANDSCAPE 1

The base and frame was made from Woodland Scenics SubTerrain Layout System foam and the trackbed is a piece of 2in riser. The foam was fixed together with Foam Tack Glue. The mountain’s foundations are nothing more than scrunched-up brown paper.

3

2

Cut pieces of plaster cloth, submerge them in a bucket of water and apply to the landscape. Overlap the pieces, and once the whole area is covered, leave it to dry. The rocky areas were made by applying Busch Modelling Compound with a palette knife.

4

CAREFUL WITH WATER Ensure that the edge of the area to be filled with resin is completely sealed. Mine obviously sprung a leak and some of the resin seeped onto the floor at home, giving my wife another reason to question why on Earth I do railway modelling inside the house!

5

To bring some life to the greenery, apply PVA to the Blätterflor and sprinkle on some Woodland Scenics Fine Turf. Then press some green Poly Fibre into PVA glue between the wall and the outcrop.

Subscribe at www.model-rail.co.uk

The retaining wall was made from a sheet of embossed brick Heki foam. Although readycoloured, it was darkened with a light coat of Humbrol grey acrylic aerosol and individual bricks were highlighted by dry-brushing. Fix the wall to the layout with PVA and T-Pins.

6

The next step was to spray extra hold hairspray over the Poly Fibre, then sprinkle on fine green scatter material. Do not cover the Poly Fibre with too much scatter material because it will then lose its light and airy look.

The scenery is progressing well: the loch base has been painted black and Heki Blätterflor foliage mat has been added. Static grass has been applied to the cliffs. The rocky outcrops at the front were made from Woodland Scenics moulds and Hydrocal powder mixture.

7

I poured on Woodland Scenics Realistic Water. Pour it to a depth of no more than 2mm deep. I used Deluxe Materials Making Waves to form froth and texture ripples around the rock and sides with a wooden coffee stirrer.

HOW TO DO IT: DETAIL A ‘37/4’ 1

Straight out of the box, this Bachmann Class 37/4 37410 Aluminium 100 looks much too clean - particularly the roof.

4

It’s easily rectified using Deluxe Materials Perfect Putty. I applied a small amount to the bottom corners.

72

2

The first task was to add relief to the solid airhorns. Take care using the pin vice as one slip could cause damage to the cab front!

5

Once the putty had dried, I removed any excess with Tamiya fine sandpaper. I was able to touch in the yellow with Humbrol 24 - and it’s not a bad match.

3

There was an unsightly seam where the nose moulding meets the body. This was one of the major flaws that I wanted to remedy.

6

I felt that the font used for the numbers was a bit too big and heavy, so I ran a soft pencil around the edges. Once weathered, the numbers look more prototypical.

Etched plates will always make a massive visual difference to a model. Remove them from the sprue with a pair of DCCconcepts cutters and tidy the edges with a sharp scalpel.

8

9

I fixed the ’plates with Deluxe Materials R/C modellers’ glue because it would dry quickly and that they would not slide out of position while the glue dried.

10

11

In the cab, I painted the top of the control console grey and used a dark blue on the driver. This would make both details more visible through the cab windows.

Fitting any bufferbeam detailing parts will improve the look of a model. You may need to enlarge some of the holes with a small drill bit. Apply cyano glue with a cocktail stick to prevent damage from excess adhesive.

Some glue might seep out at the edges. Remove the excess immediately with a damp cloth, then recheck the nameplate is still in the correct position before leaving it to dry.

12

AK Interactive enamel paints, applied with a brush, were used for some of the weathering. I used these to add oily runs and stains below the grills and in other places.

13

14

I did some of the weathering before reassembly, starting with the roof. I applied a variety of powders from the Noch Weathering Starter Set, using the brush supplied.

After reassembly, the rest of the body was weathered using weathering powders. At last, it was looking a lot more like a real West Highland Class 37/4 locomotive.

Task 3: Those essential details There will almost certainly be some feature unique to your chosen prototype that you’ll need to include somewhere. For mine, it was Radio Electronic Token Block, the electronic signalling system introduced in the 1980s. With the line split into sections, the driver contacts the control centre on the radio to request a token. Rather than the metal token in a pouch, the signaller at the control centre (for the West Highland, it’s at Banavie) sends an electronic token to receiving apparatus in the locomotive, and blue lights allow the train to proceed. The only really visible aspect of RETB are the lineside signs, commonplace throughout lines in the far north. Thankfully, these are readily available from Sankey Scenics.

2

I painted the back of the sheet in a slightly diluted grey acrylic before I cut out the signs. Use a steel rule and a sharp blade.

4

Run the black felt-tip pen around each edge. It only takes a minute per sign but it vastly improves the look.

The Sankey Scenics RETB signage sheets come with an explanation of how RETB operates, plus diagrams showing where the signs should be positioned along the track.

he recent release of Revolution Trains’ ‘N’ gauge TEA wagons (MR228) caused a real stir among modern image modellers. Seen as the first fully crowdfunded UK RTR model, it has opened the gates to more high-spec models being produced in similar circumstances. Oh, and it was a stunning model in its own right too. Yet tank wagons seldom stay bright and clean for long, especially those in use for oil and petrochemical traffic. While contemporary stock is kept in better external condition than pre-privatisation designs, there’s still plenty of scope for a bit of creative weathering work. An airbrush is my usual means of applying a good proportion of weathering to freight vehicles, but working with 2mm:1ft scale subjects does make the task a little harder.

subject is easy enough, but working the paint evenly around ladders, walkways and the curvature of barrel can be a challenge, especially if aiming for a subtle effect, rather than a really filthy finish. With this project, therefore, I decided to avoid the use of an airbrush altogether, employing a range of oil-based washes and paints as the primary means of weathering. A little dry pigment was also used to finish things off and create a contrasting, dusty sheen to certain areas.

HIGHS AND LOWS One of the main aims of the job was to introduce some tonal variation to the tankers’ liveries, especially the blue version. Often, instead of simply dirtying up a model, creating highlights and shading to the paintwork can suggest a lived-in appearance more effectively.

The use of washes allows the ‘dirt’ to be collected in recesses and hard-toreach areas, such as under the etched walkway and around the filler hatches. Introducing leaks and spillages, plus plenty of subtle streaking effects, adds further realism. However, with small scale subjects, subtlety is key, so softening any ‘hard’ edges with a little thinners and a cotton swab, is important. While the artists’ oil paints took longer than other paints to dry, they proved an effective medium for achieving the desired effects. Building up several individual layers of weathering on each wagon paid dividends, with a range of lifelike effects being created. The highlights and low-lights also proved worthwhile, injecting further life to the wagons and helping to bring out the excellent detail relief. Now for a nice cuppa TEA‌!

Model Rail 232 March 2017


WEATHER WITH OILS Oil paints in tube form offer a different experience, especially when weathering. Their slower drying times mean that they can be re-worked, with the help of thinners, for up to a few days after application. For best results, choose the same b d of paints and thinners.

HOW TO DO IT: WEATHER ‘N’ GAUGE TANK WAGONS 1

Weathering washes offer a simple and effective solution to small or complex objects. Shake well and apply with a flat brush, working on a few inches at a time. Allow the pigment to settle into all recesses.

4

Once the initial layers have dried, use a soft, flat brush to drag small amounts of wash down the barrel, concentrating the staining near to the filler hatches to mimic spillage during loading.

Subscribe at www.model-rail.co.uk

2

Wipe away as much of the wash as desired with cotton swabs. Use vertical strokes to mimic the force of gravity and leave faint streaking patterns. Continue until the whole model has been treated.

5

Oil and grease effect washes offer a suitably oily sheen, contrasting with the matt of the earlier layers. Brush on in vertical strokes, building up deeper deposits around the fillers and discharge points.

3

Repeat the process, allowing each layer to dry in between. Vary the wash shades to add some tonal variety and introduce darker shading in deeper recesses, or where more dirt is likely to accumulate.

6

Soften the hard edges of the brush-applied streaks with cotton swabs dampened slightly with thinners. Choose either white spirit or a matching formula to the washes being employed.

81


7

8

9

For greater realism, build up a number of layers of ‘oil’ staining, repeating the process with each application allowed to dry thoroughly. Alter the shade slightly by adding a little dark or brown wash to each layer.

Squeeze out a small amount of oil paint onto a mixing palette or scrap of plastic. Choose earthy browns, plus greys and different shades of the wagon’s livery, in this case blue.

Dab small blobs of the neat oils onto one side of the barrel, targeting the darker shades along the seams and where shadows are likely to fall. Lighter shades can be added to the upper, central areas of each panel.

10

11

12

Dip a flat brush in appropriate thinners and run over the oils in downward strokes, working the paint into recesses, especially under the walkway and the underside of the barrel.

Wipe away most of the paint with swabs, used dry at first, and maintaining vertical movements. Leave pigment where darker shading is required and keep the tonal variety created by the streaking.

Work your way around the model, adding earthy shades to the underframe in similar fashion to the washes. Repeat the highlighting if necessary, adding more of the lighter livery colour in strategic areas.

13

14

15

Tamiya’s pointed swabs reach into confined areas more safely and effectively than standard cotton buds and can be used to drag the oil deposits downwards to create delicate streaks. The oils stay workable for up to 24 hours.

Build up streaks of darker oils emanating from the filler hatches, softening the edges with a swab dampened with thinners. Layering the streaks with slightly different shades helps avoid a one-dimensional appearance.

A welcome contrast in terms of sheen is provided by a light dusting of weathering powders to the underframe. A variety of brown and grey shades are combined and gently applied with a soft, dry brush.

16

Gentle tonal variations bring extra realism and a more authentic lived-in appearance.

Brush away any excess powders with a clean dry brush. A grey artist’s coloured pencil (with a soft ‘lead’) is great for picking out the relief of raised detail, and especially the etched walkway and steps.

USED BUT NOT ABUSED A word about buying second-hand: the Hornby-Dublo ‘R1s’ on offer on eBay ranged from mint, boxed examples to body-less chassis. Mint examples are inevitably more expensive and there is no point in destroying a collectable model just for the chassis. At the other end of the scale, a ‘naked’ chassis leads one to ponder what happened to the body, how badly the model may have been looked after, or worse,

whether it has been dropped, or chewed by the dog! The bodyshell may have lost the fight, and the chassis might not have fared too well, either. I chose one which was complete, in standard black livery (so less collectable than the green ones) and described as being in ‘good running order’. These old mechanisms were rugged and well built, so provided it is in working order and

hasn’t been over-used, a good clean-up and some judicious lubrication should restore the best of its running qualities. I did just that, and it worked a treat! Once lubricated and cleaned, I let it run in for 20 minutes in each direction, just as you would with a new model. However, in view of its age, I checked periodically that the motor wasn’t getting too hot. It’s easy to burn out these old motors.

HOW TO DO IT: SERVICE A SECOND-HAND CHASSIS 1

2

3

I checked that the chassis worked with a few circuits of my layout. It ran better going forwards than backwards, which probably means that it is well run-in forwards but has done little running in reverse.

The wheel treads were a little grimy. A spot of electrical cleaning fluid on a cotton bud was used to clean the wheel treads. Hornby-Dublo wheels were plated, so avoid using abrasive cleaners as this will wear the plating away.

Don’t apply too much oil to an old chassis, even if it is noisy. The front motor bearing has an oil pad to which oil was applied with a piece of plastic rod. A couple of drops is enough, and just one drop on the exposed worm/gear.

FIDDLE CIRCUITS

INTRODUCING FI Short on space and operational interest? PAUL A. LUNN presents a new concept to make your baseboard real estate work much harder.

O

Artwork: PAUL A. LUNN

ff-stage train storage is always an issue. Sector plates, cassettes, sidings; how do you make best use of the space available? The above are fine for branch line terminus layouts, where you don’t have a lot of trains to store. Where it gets difficult is when you have a tail-chasing main line layout and lots of main line trains to find space for. Large, marshalling yard-like fiddleyards will consume huge amounts of space, and require baseboards several feet deep. Scenic fiddleyards - quite literally fiddleyards with scenery on and in public view - are not new. But what if you merge the scenic area and the fiddleyard together? That’s what I did with this plan based on Halifax that appeared in MR231. I was able to keep all six through platform faces because you can store six trains here. As a result, the hidden area, where the fiddleyard would traditionally be, is just 1ft deep with only four tracks on it. It’s a rather new concept that I call the ‘Fiddle Circuit’. Here’s how it works: A train, travelling in the direction indicated by A, moves over onto circuit B and travels all the way round to C. The locomotive is uncoupled and removed via Peco Loco Lift 1 or Loco Lift 2 - whichever is available - on the innermost circuit. The coaches remain at point C. The next train, hauled by Locomotive 2, repeats the process but couples up to the coaches at C and propels the whole lot to D. A third and final train, hauled by Locomotive 3, follows the same process, but the locomotive is removed at Loco Lift 3. Locomotive 2, sandwiched between two rakes of coaches, reverses to collect coaches from the third train to make one long train. Obviously the trains can’t be very long, but as the layout’s width is just 10ft, they won’t be that long anyway. You could have four coaches from the first train, five from the second and three from the last to make (including the locomotive), a total of 13 vehicles.

FULL RAKE PICK-UP The locomotive can now push or pull the accumulated train around the circuit in either direction, until the coaches from the first or third train pass exit point E. Here the rake can be uncoupled and a new locomotive added, via Loco Lift 2. This train is ready for the return journey, via curved points in the top right hand corner, to Halifax or North Bridge, depending on destination. Analogue users will need to isolate sections so that Locomotive 2 remains stationary, while incoming or outgoing trains still have the freedom to move in and out of the scenic section. Naturally, DCC simplifies this process no end. And this process doesn’t just apply to trains moving in one direction. It can apply to trains travelling in the opposite direction, moving from F onto circuit G and using Loco Lifts LL4 and LL5. Note that LL4 is situated under the high open-backed Mackintosh building for easy access. Additionally, trains can be ‘stacked’ in the circuits so, for example, the first of three will (depending on its length) be the last out, but all travelling on a circular route, rather than end-to-end. Finally, you have the option of just watching trains going round and round on the main line using station platform tracks and goods sidings as scenic fiddleyards. Just make sure that inward-bound and outward-bound ‘Fiddle Circuit’ trains are not left standing with coaches blocking the main line, particularly in the area around all diamond crossings! There are numerous benefits to ‘Fiddle Circuits’ in terms of speed of operation, focusing most operation onto the scenic rather than non-scenic section and thereby providing greater interest for spectators. Plus it’s more cost-effective in using minimum pointwork and it consumes less baseboard space.

Backscene

The Old Sage, CHRIS LEIGH, offers more modelling miscellany

Now I’m a blogger Back in mid-December I celebrated my 70th birthday, and among numerous gifts from friends and colleagues was this ‘O’ gauge Chris Leigh, beautifully sculpted by Andrew Stadden at the request of my Model Rail colleagues, led by Mike. Mike’s youthful influence has certainly brought me into the 21st century, and though I don’t yet own a mobile ‘device’ as they now seem to be called, I do now have a blog on Model Rail’s new website. Here’s the link for those who want to read more of my ramblings - including bits that don’t necessarily make it into ‘Backscene’. www.model-rail.co.uk/new-blog

My life’s works - where are they now? In terms of actual scratchbuilt models, I have little to show for a lifetime of model making. True, ‘Black Dog Halt’ (in shortened form) is in the museum at Chippenham, and I still have one or two of my earliest buildings. The Old Mill from Thorpe, Surrey, has been restored and is on my current ‘OO’ layout. I have both Three Cocks Junction and Heyford station buildings (‘OO’) which are early efforts, but both need major repairs. I have lost, over the years, Bratton Fleming, which I built for Model Railway Constructorr and Savernake Low Level, which was part of Model Rail’s original Total Test Facility, or TTF for short. I’ve

I believe ‘Elton’, which featured in Model Raill some years ago, still survives in Elton village, where it was once on display. I’ve been pretty careless in lending out items, particularly photographs, and not recording details of when and where they went. I’ve only ever scratchbuilt two locomotives, and I can’t now find my Bideford, Westward Ho! and Appledore 2-4-2T Torridge. Did I, perhaps, lend it to someone and forget? Or did it get lost in my house move? Its loss echoes that of the prototype, for the real Torridge was requisitioned

I find the story of the BWHAR every bit as fascinating as the nearby Lynton & Barnstaple. Like the L&B, it was a unique and quirky North Devon railway, and one that lasted less than 20 years, died young and stayed beautiful. Torridge was my second and last scratchbuilt locomotive, but where is it now?

during the First World War and allegedly lost when the ship it was aboard (absurdly reported to be named SS Gotterdammerung) was sunk off Padstow. However, I once researched this at the Public Record Office and the record of ship losses at that time shows no ship which fits the description or location of loss. Torridge simply disappeared. Subsequent claims that divers have found the wreck usually prove to be a ship with railway equipment aboard but not the Hunslet locomotive. I’ll bet, by the time this appears in print, I’ll have found it in the back of a cupboard (the model that is!) I can but hope.

Starlight g t was at Brodick David Fallows wrote in response to my ‘Harbours’ feature (MR228). He says: “You may like to know that your photo of the puffer Starlightt was taken at Brodick Harbour, on the Isle of Arran. “The little ‘berth’ at the side of the harbour wall was almost exclusively used by puffers. It was water-filled from around half tide or so, but at low tide the puffers grounded on their flat bottoms. This was in the days of the side-loading car ferry Glen Sannox, long before the floating driveway access for the stern-loading Caledonian Isles was built. “The side-loading ship was memorable - the ramp was lowered from the deck near the stern - you drove onto a turntable in the deck and were hand-turned to the vehicle berths. I remember it - [along with] Starlight, t Roman and VIC 21 - well.” Here’s another picture from the same set, which seems to confirm David’s comments.
