Ewhurst Green - BR(S)

Post by Caiptean » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:37 pm

There are two places named 'Ewhurst Green' on the Southern Region's area; one near me in East Sussex - the other in Surrey.

In the 1880s it appears there were proposals for a railway from Dorking to Midhurst that could have conceivable passed through Ewhurst Green. Whilst these never actually came to fruition it makes the good basis for a modest layout based on a LB&SCR (London) Dorking - Midhurst - Havant (Portsmouth) route with Ewhurst Green being the junction-station for the branch line to Cranleigh, Guildford and even onto Reading. ;)

So, in 4mm the construction of Ewhurst Green is ongoing............... :)

Fascinating read Caiptean. I reckon just about everybody knows a Terry who looks like that. I certainly do. And a Paul come to mention it. :lol:

I'll have to get Terry (aka the Rigger) interested in this forum........ :D

Apart from the inadvertent humour from Cheltenham, this forum is proving more interesting already! :)

The Cheltenham reference sent a shiver down my spine.

In respect of some contributors to model railway forums I perceive there are sometimes factors at play that would explain much but are not realised or considered by others thereon. Although I have provided a link to just one, there are many examples of these ’factors’. I know (elsewhere) forum moderators share my views; hence providing much latitude in responses to contributors who may (or may not) have a genuine need for such consideration.

Heljan never made a restriction '0' Crompton but I couldn't resist not having one on Ewhurst Green......

Nice pictures - I still like your retaining wall.

Totally agree Caiptean and those on the Hornby forum know all about the problem you have highlighted. I’m sorry to say that after about 8 years it begins to wear you down. I have personal dealings with this problem.
