Another nice day, so I took the opportunity to nip down to Pulborough for some more prototype pictures. All I can say is thank goodness for digital cameras...I took 86 pictures in 30 minutes
We start from (north to south) at the scenic break for what will be the right-hand side of the layout from the viewing side...the road overbridge carrying Church Lane.
As can be seen, it is quite a nice structure built in a mixture of stone and brick.
The station can be seen clearly in the other
It has been well over 6 months since I last added something here!
More ideas have been formulating over the last few months, some of which have manifested in other threads, however something struck me in the world of T Gauge the other day...and the source of this was none other than Electra Railway graphics.
A very naughty Mr Warr has decided to start producing his tranfer sets for T Gauge...mainly to fit the Hankyu 9000 sets that have recently

Ever since I had this idea, to me there
So this is it, my first personal blog! On here will be my thoughts, plans and (hopefully) executions for a number of ideas I have had buzzing round my mind for the last few years. Over the last few years my modelling attention has centred on our club??™s layouts ??“ which are covered in the Liphook & District MRC thread, as I have been unable to pursue my own interests at home.
