Hi All,

Have recently found and registered for this Forum.

Hope I can share information with others and that you can also help me with information.

I a currently planning a round and round 00 layout in a 12ft x8ft dedicated railway room, which benefits from an outward opening door.

The layout is called "Partly Maidenhead" because it is based on Maidenhead on the GW Mainline from Paddington, but only the relief lines and High Wycombe Branch junction will be portrayed due to lack of space. I will run timetables for 1960-2, 1977-9 and 1992-4. The compromises will be reduced by only portraying the ends of the platforms.

I will share the latest version when I finish drawing it later this week.

Best regards
Paul

Everyone here is friendly so welcome and ask away if you have any questions. Someone will come along and give you an answer, then you'll get more answers than you can deal with! :) Most of the answers will increase in detail from a simple yes, to exactly how it can be done three different ways. It's all part of the fun of belonging to a forum!

Welcome!

Thanks for the posts of welcome everyone.

Here is my first information request:-
Can anyone tell me in the 1950s/60s which of the four up and 4 down freights that stopped at Maidenhead on the Reading line delivered and or picked up coal wagons?
Or did the coal come down the branch from Wycombe on the evening train that delivered coal and picked up empties from the Branch stations?

Thanks
Paul

Blimey Paul that’s one hell of a question for a model railway forum. That really is for somebody with a lot of local knowledge and I’m afraid I’m the local one and don’t have a clue. Hopefully somebody will or will know where to find out.
