  1. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/24951-modelling-aylesbury-station-risborough-district-mrc/page/7/ This is the thread on modelling Aylesbury station plenty of prototype info for you.
  2. 1955 the rear of the shed at Aylesbury was knocked through.
  3. You might be interested in the model my club (Risborough & District MRC) is making of Aylesbury station still plenty to do but I built the engine shed and Tim Peacock built the water tank the coaling stage I still need to construct but it was at two levels one for GWR engines and the other for the other regions.

  4. Yep hope to exibit it when I finish it, still lots of work to do before I get to making the actual model.
  5. The first coat of paint but getting the flint look is a bit tricky I think the idea I am going to go with is to stipple paint on.
  6. “RAILEX 2022 is still on! News of Railex 2022’s demise was a premature! Although, owing to a double booking, we have lost our traditional venue at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium we are keen to run the show if at all possible. Judging by the comments received that’s what the viewing public want too. Therefore, we are looking at alternative venue options. So keep the date and watch this space.”
  7. A test piece to see how laser cut knapped flint and brick looked, I may experiment to see how best to paint it but each flint is .75mm
  8. Unfortunately We have had to cancel Railex 2022, as previously mentioned although our normal date in late May was unavailable we were offered another date in June which we then booked, only to be told by the stadium yesterday that the new date had been double booked. To say we are frustrated is a bit of an understatement. Many of of our stadium team who we have worked with since 2005 have in the last year moved on, as in the past had a rolling contract for our usual weekend. We have now booked the stadium for Railex 2023 and hope to see you there 27 & 28 May. David
  9. I have just picked up on this thread, fantastic work. Just one thing I have picked up on is that the GWR type 5 signal boxes were generally built entirly in blue brick rather than red brick on your model. I had a look at colour photos of Tavistock and yes the box is in blue brick. David
  10. After two years of not having a physical show, we are planning Railex 2022. Due to the unavalible of our traditional dates in May we have moved to June 25th & 26th. for Railex 2023 we wil be back to May. Railex 2022 Stoke Mandeville Stadium Stadiun Approch Aylesbury Bucks HP22 9PP Saturday 10.00-5.30 Sunday 10.00-5.00 Confirmed layouts and traders will be added in due course.
  11. Some more images in black & white, I have added some fences and walls, I have tried to work out from maps and old photographs to see what they looked like and where they went.
  12. Nearly there just a few more details to add, I have even popped the correct Flint cottage image in the background, and too give it a period look have given it a black and white filter. I feel its quite an attractive station and one of those lost GWR terminus stations, although to be correct it was only a Wycombe railway station although it was run by the GWR from the start.
  13. I think there was one the prototype that had doors made up of 3 full width planks and this was copied by Lima the remaining ones seemed to have doors made up of a half plank two full planks and one half plank.
  14. I need to check but I think the planking on the doors looks wrong it should have a half plank at the hinge end.
