Diesels at Crown Point.

#1

Post by glencairn »

With the demolishing of Glenburnie Station and Diesel Engine Shed a new layout is planned.

The new plan is not to have a station.
A new engine shed where the old station was.
More scenery added at the old engine shed area.

Work begins. --

Where is Crown Point? Answer -- Leeds.

Now both Diesels and Steam engines are in the same area. :D

More to follow.

Track laying at Crown Point is taking place (slowly). The pointwork works okay, but ordinary track needs replacing. I also need some track joiners. A trip to my local model shop shall have to be done.

Passenger trains can still run, M.G. My grandchildren have demanded it so.

I was hoping to have the new engine shed area finished at the weekend, but my other grandchildren are staying here.

What I thought would take a couple of days changing things round has become a major (to me) rebuild of the layout.
Here are a few pictures.

Three views of Charlie Marston's yard.

The new entrance by rail.

A streamlined 4.6.0 languishing in the yard. It one of only two to be streamlined. Number 2859 is preserved at Llangollen Railway. I guess this one must be number 2870. :) I shall have a couple of prospective buyers looking it over soon.

Charlie Marston's house has also been moved. Agnes Marston is a bit so-so at the move. She has lost her garden.
