Re: Cattle dock

Just as an aside. Remember goods yards were there in the horse and cart era not the motor car. Horses needed more space. Just a reminder to think when the line was actually built and the space they used.

Re: Diesels at Crown Point.

Hi everyone. I am fine. With my wife being disabled we have been having a few challenges. Not Covid related; gratitude. I have been 'popping in' now and again but not posting. I did do a little weathering on a parcels vehicle. A first effort as I am not really fond of weathering. IMG_5072.JPG Glenca...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street.

Although the Metcalfe warehouses are good for what they are, making them as part of a backscene has been an error. They are nothing like the warehouses I often saw as I walked down Call lane to Sovereign Street. Then recently I came across a Company in Hipperholme, West Yorkshire. (ID Backscenes/2K ...

Re: Top Speeds Question

I stand to be corrected, but as far as I am aware no such thing on a general basis in respect of British steam engines, although one or two classes, over the years, had individual maximum speeds imposed on them.

Re: Hello from the West (Yorkshire that is)!

Welcome on board, darkscot.

Will we see coal wagons at a colliery or perhaps a canal dock? :)

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street.

Sometimes when one feels like having a different train running session, Clarence Dock comes to the fore. One or two coach steam trains run from Leeds Central to Clarence Dock. The engine runs round the coaches and hooks up for the return journey. The 'fun' really starts when goods trains are running...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point.

Whilst I am posting a picture or two of cars, here is another one. Last year or so (pre Covid 19) my younger granddaughter and I would visit model railway shows and 1-1 big stuff. Anyway, whilst at the Hartlepool Show, she bought me this 'old timer'. It is parked in pride and place at Roseville Stat...
