It was good to see you at the Liverpool show over the weekend enjoyed our chat about future layouts and as usual enjoyed the scene at Ellesmere Station in all it's glory...... :sungum:  It's one of those layouts that one notices something new each time it is viewed.

2239 needs a little bit more than lamps and crew. Without checking against my list, balance weights, vacuum pipes, screw link coupling on the front buffer beam and fallplate come to mind.

 

The weathering needs a little more attention too. Pleased with how it's turned out though. Now where did I put that coach you wanted doing???

Apologies to anyone who was hoping to see us at Aylesbury Railex.  Unfortunately, we've had to cancel at the last minute! Our next exhibition is currently Warley at the NEC in November.

mess van model.jpg

 

However, we have finished the Mess van which we saw in a photo taken when it was parked at Ellesmere in 1961. It was presumably there when the Elson Road bridge at the west end of the station was being strengthened.  It belonged to the Oswestry Division Bridge Department which was based at Caersws near Newtown. The model is a modified Ratio GWR 4 wheeler. Transfers were produced by Railtec and the end detail and painting were done by Ian Chapman. The roof still needs sticking on and it still lacks screw couplings.  Plenty of time to do that now!

What a cruel close up picture that is. It looks better "in the flesh". It will look good parked up in the siding.
