  1. Sadly, Bob died last night. It will be rare for any railway modeller or historian that is even remotely serious about their hobby not to be aware of Bob and probably have a clutch of his publications in their bookshelves (maybe like me a whole shelf full!) Bob had the interest in and access too a lot of historical information at a time when this was being actively ignored and sometimes disposed of by the 12" to the ft brigade. Based on this, he and a number of other similarly interested people went about both preserving this information and then analysing/publishing it. There are a lot of historical records that are still with us due to his and his contemporary's efforts and, certainly, we would not know what we now do about the prototype without his efforts to then tell us all about them. Bob was not, however, a researcher for researcher's sake. He fundamentally did it because he wanted to create more accurate models for himself and to inspire others to do so too. Finding that no one actually knew what the right prototype answer was, he went out and discovered it. Based on this knowledge, Bob created a number of accurate in concept as well as creation models, both in 4mm and then in 7mm. He was a founding member and first Chairman of the Scalefour Society and a founding member the ScaleSevern Society. He was also a founding member of the LMS Society and (I presume, I am less certain of this) of the Midland Railway Society. We thus all owe a big debt to Bob and his passing is a big loss.

  4. And some from today, not many ‘work pics’ but some from my commute home passed 66792 at chinley while I was waiting to get onto the chord, tomorrow job involves me taking the same train as today to peak forest then getting in a taxi back to crewe to work that train back to walsall! i was supposed to get off at peak forest and job done, got told I didn’t have a hire car but I had a plan! I stayed on to Hindlow so I was in the right place to get in my bike and ride home from there, could have took the easy option and headed back to Buxton but had decided to catch a train from cromford on the Matlock branch, a 20 odd mile ride along the high peak trail from hindlow ready for the off The start of the high peak trail which is the old cromford and high peak railway Parsley hey, a welcome cup of tea break the old junction to Ashbourne Tunnel under the A515 would have loved to have seen a train trundling round the curves on the line! hopton incline Hopton tunnel Middleton top middleton incline And at the bottom looking back up steeple grange light railway And onward through black rocks to sheep pasture incline And looking down from the top toward cromford You can see the line to Matlock in the middle of the picture, this was the old mainline from Manchester to St Pancras via peak forest, a line I drove my train around a few hours earlier! Top of the incline Half way down And a catch pit at the bottom for run away wagons Couple of brake vans High peak jn I then planned to ride along the back road to cromford but it was shut so I had to use the towpath to cromford wharf, this picture is looking back up toward where I took the picture of the midland line from the high peak line, you can just about make out the embankment right at the top of the hill, you can see just how far the line drops in a short distance down sheep pasture incline Cromford wharf I then decided to carry on to Matlock bath and briefly called in to see @andyram in his shop before getting the train home I planned to grab a cuppa in town but realised there was a train due in 2 minutes so scooted quickly to the station and thankfully caught it to derby, strangely this is the first time I’ve ever been on this part of the line, I’ve been to cromford behind a top and tail pair of 20s back in 1989 once before but no further! a good trip, would definitely do it again come summer, next time I’ll get off at peak as booked and do Matlock via the monsal trail Annoyingly that train arrives into derby at exactly the same time the train to crewe departs so I had an hour to wait so got a bit more charge in the bike while I waited, it needs a good wash now though! longer job tomorow, same train to peak then another crewe to walsall and into lodge for the night hope you enjoyed those piccies, a bit of a change from the norm but worth documenting

  5. A quiet day on shed at Braeside Whilst doing bits of ballasting and chatting with Dad about a backscene, I took some photos at the entrance to our engine shed. It's based on a Caledonian design seen at Aberdeen Ferryhill and Grangemouth. Here is one of BR (Ex LNER D11) 62677 "Edie Ochiltree" on No.2 road

  6. Thank you to @Revolution Ben for the following obituary. OBITUARY CHRIS MARCHANT – ‘CJM’ – 1953-2021 Chris Marchant, the hugely influential creator of CJM Models who redefined expectations of the quality of British outline N gauge modelling, has died at the age of 68. Chris founded CJM in 1987 from his own love of N gauge and difficulty finding models to reach his exacting standards. His exquisite hand-painted and assembled models with heavy, flywheel-drive chassis set the benchmark for what was possible in modern image N gauge, at a time when rivals were still dated drive systems and unrealistic, shiny wheels. As befits handmade models they came with a price to match, but Chris’s loyal customers often said the quality and haulage power of their bespoke Class 50s, 56s, 59s, 60s, 66s, 67s and 92s were enjoyed long after the cost was forgotten. Chris was born in Shropshire in 1953. As a child his family moved several times due to his father’s job with NatWest bank before settling in Kent, where Chris attended Gravesend Grammar School. After leaving school, he began working in motor sales before moving into financial services and joining Mercantile Credit. After setting up CJM, initially offering repaints of standard Graham Farish models carried out in the back of his garage, he moved to the Newington Enterprise Centre in the early 1990s. There, with his long-time collaborator Bernard Taylor of TPM, he began developing his own range of models using resin and photoetched brass to create levels of detail previously unheard of in British N gauge. This started with the Class 73, which was based around an American chassis. In the early days Chris valued the support and assistance of Graham Shaw (of Shawplan) and of Mike and Jenni Watts (Fox Transfers) who provided etchings and transfers, while his son Gareth used his design experience to create the artwork. At this time the Channel Tunnel was in full construction, and Eurotunnel were looking for locomotives and rolling stock for the huge layout they had planned for the Folkestone visitor centre. Realising no mass market products would perform as required, Eurotunnel approached CJM to produce Class 92 locomotives that would be able to run for 22 actual miles each week without requiring complete rebuilds. This led to the development of the CJM ‘Saturn’ chassis which fulfilled all requirements - including the ability, under test, to pull a train weighing 2kg up scale gradients – that’s roughly the same as two full bags of sugar! As well as motive power, Chris developed models of the various Eurotunnel car and lorry transporter wagons; these were put on sale as kits that were often packed by family members including Gareth, who remembers it as ‘a great education in the value of work and earning money.’ Now Chris had developed his own ‘Saturn’ chassis (so named because it ‘ran rings around everything else’) CJM grew rapidly. Supported by a growing, and loyal, customer base the Class 92 was followed by the Class 59, Class 66, Class 56, Class 67 and Class 50. In 1989 Chris met the Princess of Wales, and Princes William and Harry, when they were presented with a commemorative N-gauge model of The Travelling College that he had been commissioned to make. He was also a familiar face on the exhibition circuit – attending the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition and The International N Gauge Show most years until recently – and loved meeting existing customers and finding new ones. As well as producing CJM models, Chris was well known for his airbrush tutorials which he hugely enjoyed and offered his students the opportunity to at least aspire to the levels of painting finish and detail he could achieve. He was also very generous with his advice and time; when Mike Hale and I were starting Revolution Trains he freely offered us invaluable suggestions and feedback around chassis design and customer engagement. Away from model railways Chris retained his interest in cars. He was a keen follower of Formula 1, with a passion for Ferrari, and loved driving his sporty Alfa Romeo roadster. He also enjoyed modelling; away from N gauge trains his preference was for large scale cars and military vehicles including tanks and aircraft. Learning I lived opposite an RAF base in Cambridgeshire in the early 2000s he asked me to send photos of the Phantom F-4 that served as gate-guardian. In recent years Chris’s health had declined and he suffered a stroke which affected his eyesight. He died peacefully in hospital with his family at his side. Chris is survived by his two children, Matthew and Gareth, his partner Marian and his three beloved grandchildren Thomas, Joshua and Lucas. Chris had a long-standing love of the sea and the sea front. During summer months he loved to take a daily dip and spent happy hours walking his dog or playing with his grandchildren at the water’s edge. His family requests that any donations in his memory be made to the Thanet Coast Project - http://www.thanetcoast.org.uk/how-to-help/make-a-donation/ Matthew and Gareth would like to thank all Chris’s friends/customers for their support over the years, and hope they continue to find enjoyment in the models that their father loved to create for many years to come. Knowing there is a part of him out there, as a lasting memory, is a great comfort; to Chris Marchant his creations were not just products but lovingly crafted pieces of art.

  7. I'm back for another most enjoyable visit to 'York', and the shed fitted into position beautifully. This is the shed with the main roof removed, and the turntable installed. With the roof in place obviously much is hidden, which is why the glazing had to be kept as clean as possible. The area in front of the shed will house the power station and Leeman Road, with the entrance to the coal yard. On the right is the straight shed which I wanted to put in position to make sure it fitted before finishing it. The nearest wall of the offices needs moving back 10cm to clear the tracks. The missing part of the shed roof will also be done at home and just placed in position when it's complete. First though I need a couple of days rest from cutting and sticking glazing bars! This picture shows the relationship of the shed to the station. Now it's the NRM of course. Finally, a couple of shots taken by putting my phone right up to the entrance door; both pictures have been cropped. It really needs some digital smoke adding. I've brought home the board that will have the power station on, so I'll go back when that an the remaining shed parts are complete. The Leeman Road section will be best done in situ, Peter

  12. Hello Tony and everyone, here are a couple of pictures of where I've reached with my current build, the London Road Models GNR C2. I've just finished doing the white lines of the boiler bands, using a compass bow pen to follow the edges of the bands themselves and I'm leaving them to set fully for a while before filing in the black, so the next job will be making a start on lining the side tank and bunker: The white of the bands is a little bright at the moment, but I've found that adding black next to white inevitably results in tiny amounts of black being deposited on the white in the course of cleaning up the edges of the black, which tones down the white - you can see that effect in the first picture, around the buffer beam edges. That's also why the 'land' along the boiler bands, between the white lines, hasn't been cleaned up as carefully as the boiler surfaces adjacent to the bands, because it'll be filled in with black, likewise those sections of side-tank and bunker beading where black has gone where it shouldn't. Progress has been slower over the last two or three months, partly due to a couple of minor health issues and partly because lining takes me a lot longer than almost anything else. I'd done yellow lining on a few teak coaches before, but this is much more exposed and high contrast, not to mention the multiple colours. Slow work, but very enjoyable: happy modelling to all!

  17. Evening all Further progress has been made with the extension over the last couple of weeks and I'm at the point of declaring it finished (I think) and time to leave well alone! Having cleaned up the track after all the works it was time to 'test' and run some trains ready for tomorrow night when a couple of the crew are coming over to refresh on the layout after the 2 year exhibition wasteland! The first through the 'countryside' was the thumper seen approaching the Whistle board before the station with an arrival from Portsmouth. Having changed ends the driver awaits the signal to return to Pompey. A few minutes later it heads away from Tidworth and gets a run up to the gradient back to Ludgershall. Once the thumper cleared the single line at Ludgershall, 'Eastleigh' brings an arrival for the Bulford exchange sidings into the loop. After a run round in the station, D6508 draws up to the ground frame and awaits permission to proceed through the gates. As Eastleigh eases through the gates 33117+4TC is seen arriving from Waterloo. Once through the bridge into the headshunt the train is set back into the sidings. '08 sets off to the stabling point at Tidworth having positioned the wagons in the sidings. As it clears the point Eastleigh is passed by the 4TC/33 combo as it heads back to the 'smoke'. The wagons sit and await the arrival of the MoD shunter to be taken inside the offscene MoD depot (traverser). Just as I was about to head home the 117 left for Reading via Bedwyn.( First time the 117 has been used on Tidworth) So there we go then all ready for the Tolworth Ex next weekend but there might be more pics after the running session tomorrow night.

  20. Hi folks, Just thought I'd post some piccies of the latest releases from the Waverley West Works - Coal sector 26002 and 26008, which seem to go everywhere together, currently hauling the layout's MGR HAA rake.. 26002 was chosen as it has round buffers and is otherwise identical to the original Heljan donor loco 26008 as far as I can see. 26008 was kept un-renumbered. They have both been weathered to a work-stained, but not too dirty state, which 26s in this livery often seemed to be in. So, without further ado, here are some shots of the pair on the MGR rake passing through Princes Street Gardens and then Waverley... Currently on the workbench are Large Logo 37417, which is awaiting final buffer beam detailing, and an InterCity Swallow DVT. Hope to be back soon with another update. Happy Modelling! Dave

  22. Most will no doubt now know of the death of Bob Essery, one of the most influential names in the hobby, certainly in my lifetime and countless others. I count it an immense privilege to have worked with him on several publications - he being responsible for the wonderful writing and me as the 'happy snapper'. Memories return of a splendid day out at the late Teddy Boston's place in Leicestershire (Cadeby?), where hours were spent taking notes and photographing a huge collection of models. Days spent in York, at the NRM's model repository off Leeman Road in York (not open to the public, but made available to a man of Bob's stature). And, days spent at his (then) home in Rolleston-on-Dove, enjoying the delights of Wynne's hospitality as we pored over pictures and documents. He was the consummate professional, had complete faith in my ability to provide him with the photographs he needed, without interference of any kind, and said we made a 'good team'. If we were, it was down to him. Andy Farquarson once described him to me (in the nicest possible way) as Bob LMSEssery. Given Bob's unsurpassed knowledge of that great railway, I thought it was apposite.

  25. Some from today, worked a train from crewe to peak forest rhen stayed on to learn up to hindlow a foggy crewe And into a foggy peak forest Into the new run round sidings in Buxton a northern unit passing by on the main line from hazel grove to Buxton The line to hindlow passes over the old chord from the line to derby (via Matlock) that went into the midland station at Buxton, it was occupied by peak rail until the 80s hence the water column And into a foggy hindlow (Briggs siding ground frame), given the weather today and the picture on the side of the loco maybe it should have had a fog horn fitted! Ground frame Complete with BR shelter once shunting is complete the token that releases the frame is put into the token machine nearby and the train is locked in, this is after the run round and ready to set back for loading Once the token was returned the DB shunter then spoke to the box and got release to get the token back out to let his train head back to Buxton after loading it was back to the frame for departure where we had to wait for one to arrive in And then away to Buxton to run round again, yet another train waiting to head up to hindlow Shunter’s van, the unsung hero’s of the fleet! And back to peak forest but dark by then so no pics, back to it tomorrow again to get it signed off

  27. Rather belatedly, we come to the other goodie which arrived with Tim last week. The delay was caused by a combination of lack of daylight and lack of memory. Some time ago I snapped up a couple of cheap new Hornby B1s on E Bay, and they have been with Tim since. Other things kept getting to the top of the to do list though, and so only now has the first one been Timmed. Some thinking was necessary before deciding on identities, as I had to take into account both the requirements of a Saturday sequence, when I get round to it, and the different haulage capacity of Hornby and Bachmann B1s. There were quite a few 11or even 12 coach duties on Saturdays, so I needed to make sure that Hornby locos covered them. As these were all E Lincs trains to and from Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Skegness, at least one more Immingham engine seemed to be a sensible option. Trawling through various websites I found a dated photo of 61142 in July 58 on one of the weekday expresses, which I found quite interesting, as it had been out of shops for some time by then, as evidenced by the early crest it carries. 40B must have liked it though, as it had been bulled up for the London job, though there must have been lower mileage engines around. Tim had to work from a thumbnail image this time, but has done the usual excellent job.

  28. I've now finished the basic painting of Porthmellyn Road Signal Box, which means that it's ready for the windows to be fitted. The windows will hide some of the imperfections that you can see in these close-ups. Downpipes and other odds and ends will hide more and finally some weathering will blend it all together. I've also primed the roof. After another coat it can sit loosely on top of the structure for tomorrow's running session. The next three photos were taken through the railway room door at as wide an angle as I could manage without getting the door frame in the shot. On the left is Porthmellyn Road with St Enodoc on the other side of the gangway. Looking straight up (or down, depending on which side you choose) the peninsula, St Enodoc is on the left and Wheal Veronica on the right. Here St Enodoc and Wheal Veronica are left of centre and the rows of magazine shelves on the right are where Pentowan will be in the not-too-distant future. All is now ready for tomorrow's running session (famous last words). The weak link here is likely to be me, as in about an hour I'm off to a retirement party for two industry colleagues, one of whom has worked for the NSW Public Transport Commission and its successors for a nice round 50 years. It's a good job random drug and alcohol testing hadn't been invented in 1950s Mid-Cornwall...

  35. There haven't been many posts on this topic recently, but that doesn't mean we've all be idle. John and Rob have been particularly busy with the scenics. The following are a few pictures showing areas which have received attention. 1. Ash from the Pit Road is shovelled out onto the ground ..... ...before being barrowed up onto the staging and into a waiting wagon. 2. The new building "Lamp Room?" by the turntable has got its bike shed: 3. At the opposite end of the building is the Loco Roster board: 4. More station furniture is slowly being accumulated: 5. Lighting has been added in several locations around the station throat and other areas: 6. Thirsty work moving trains around here so improved provision of Water facilities has been made. 7. For a long time the signal box has lacked its "Gallery", but this is now in place: Health & Safety close your eyes. 8. The new water facilities are at risk of freezing in the winter months, so they will receive braziers or fire-devils. These will require fuel, which will be moved by barrow from the small bunker near the turntable: 9. Left over from the recent conflict : More soon I hope. Steve.

  36. Not much light available today, but nevertheless I decided that there should be a grand reopening of the Up slow, and that a record of it should be made. I think the best thing about what Tim did on Thursday was that it wasn't even on the list of jobs to be done. It had been filed under "perhaps later" for far too long, so to see it completely remedied in short order was a huge bonus. And when I thought about things again later, I realised that it had been out of action since before the Midland sidings were put in, so there was a real incentive to see what I can now do. Here then is a WD on its slow progress around the back of the station. and finally just about to start its journey back across the whole formation to get to the Up main, and shortly thereafter out of the way onto the slow goods line. Plenty more angles to play with, but that will do for now.

  40. I've been down to 'York' this morning with the models. Making the power station with the tower and chimney was certainly the right decision. The Leeman Road bridge is my next job, plus the coal yard on the right next time I visit. The huge expanse of the loco shed roof is now complete. The view looking across the layout. The straight shed alongside the roundhouse shows well here. Clearances are tight but acceptable. I've got a carriage shed to build plus some smaller buildings and when they are complete I'll go down and finish off the coal yard and Leeman Road bridge. Peter
