Hi Paul, I'm just wondering if 'cursed' rather than 'cured' was your phone changing what you wrote (mine's always doing this) or a Freudian slip? :lol:
I wish they would teach these phones to spell!!

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Hi All, Have had a week off from modelling as there was a number of jobs around the house needing doing and we had thoughts of a few days away, hence no postings. The jobs got done (just!) but the high temperatures put pay to thoughts of getting away particularly seeing the coast getting increasingl...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Are you relying solely on fishplates to conduct power. Possibly a silly question - I expect you are not. Bearing in mind that this is a 5ft x3ft6ins "quickie" layout that is really just a test track the track is what I have to hand so is a mixture of nickel silver and steel with just a couple of fe...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, I haven't posted anything for a few days because the arrival of my sound fitted green Bachmann 121 prompted me to get on with making one circuit round Lower Thames Goods Shed useable as I had nowhere to test run it! So now I have got the Wycombe branch through Branch platform cir...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, I hope you are being good and wearing your masks in shops and the other listed places? I just hope that the measures do reduce the spread of the virus and give everyone more confidence to visit shops. I have my doubts but hope to be proven wrong! Meanwhile, my modelling has not p...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Hi everybody, 10 days ago I posted some thoughts about Maidenhead Goods Shed and its Extension as a basis for the Goods shed in my Lower Thames Yard Layout. Since I had few details about the extension and the published material seemed slim I decided to find out about other similar GWR Goods Shed Ext...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon, I have been working at improvements to the scenic part of the plans for Lower Thames Yard. Firstly, as you can see from Plan 4 below, I have redrawn the Goods Shed to better show the Original brick portion and the later block built extension. I would be grateful for any photos of the...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon Everyone, I have updated Lower Thames Yard in line with my comments in my last post, so I have revised the approach road and added the weighbridge office and yard front wall/gate, but I am playing around with the position of Grenfell road along the front of board 5:- I have tried a br...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, Here is a couple of Lower Thames Yard sketches that explain how I intend to model Maidenhead Station Approach and Grenfell Road. Remember the railway only portrays the Relief Lines and the Wycombe Branch. The two tracks to the outside of the lines (bottom of the plans are the dow...
