  3. Merchant Navy 21c11 is cleaned on Fisherton Sarum shed and a couple of spotters bunking the shed look on whilst at the Faversham MRC exhibition this weekend. You can help restore the full size No.11 to this condition and put the steam back into General Steam Navigation here. http://35011gsn.co.uk/
  4. A line up of BoB’s on my Fisherton Sarum layout whilst exhibiting at the Faversham MRC exhibition on Sunday to commemorate it being Battle of Britain day.
  5. I’ve not removed it just painted it black , as being a Southern man copper caps like that on the other railway, don’t look good to me
  6. An industrial visitor to http://www.canuteroadquay.com To join my expanding industrial fleet, that is work in progress with weathering. #gotridofcoppercap
  7. A great weekend amongst friends and fellow railway modellers having a shake down of Fisherton Sarum, Alan’s Loughborough Road and the as yet unnamed Mark and Roger layout. It was a blast. See www.grahammuz.com

  8. Setting up Fisherton Sarum this weekend for the first time in ages as a shake down for a couple of shows coming up. If anyone is in the South Bucks area this weekend and wants a look let me know.

  9. Looking forward to attending with one of Fisherton Sarum's few exhinbition appearances this year
  10. Whilst the enthusiasm for the hobby is once again getting a boost from The Great Model Railway Challenge on prime time Channel 5 TV, WYCRAIL is delighted that one of last year’s competition layouts attending is ‘Ealing Road’, this was built by the Missenden Modellers team, the theme of their heat was ‘Movies’ and the team opted to base theirs on a medley of the Ealing Studios films of the early fifties, regarded by many as the high point in British Cinema. One of the highlights and impressive features of ‘Ealing Road’ is use of forced perspective both within the models on the layout itself and within the effective backscene. The Society itself also has had a new perspective this year having moved into new bright and air-conditioned clubrooms right in the centre of town, overlooking High Wycombe railway station, so we can further develop modelling within the society whilst watching 1:1 scale Chiltern Line trains pass by! This year’s WYCRAIL ’19 exhibition will once again take place at The Cressex Community School, Holmers Lane, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. HP12 4UD on Saturday 2nd November. With 29 high quality and inspirational model railway layouts, as ever WYCRAIL ‘19 is firmly established as being one of the largest and best supported one day model railway exhibitions in the South East of England. This impressive layout line-up will include British, North American and Continental outline and in a wide range of scales and gauges including Z, 2mm, N, 00, H0, EM, S, 0, G and narrow gauges. Layout highlights in addition to ‘Ealing Road’ include: Haversham Central (N), Kyle of Lochaish (2mm FS), Whitmoor (N), Staffordshire Pottery (N) Ilfracombe East (009), Lake Bank (3mm), Lynth-Haven (00), Daisyfield Traincare (00), Thornfield (00), Trinity Dock Street Bridge (00), Upper Oreful Street (00 Trams), Burton Bradstock (EM),Trowland (S), Belbroughton (0), Bristol Goods Shed (7mm FS), Vale View (0), Whiteleaf Railway (G), Sanhei Valley (Z Japanese), Salinas Valley (H0, North American), Kidmore Fork (H0 North American) Sevanda (H0 Norwegian) Once again, our own Society’s junior section layout ‘Mothercombe’ (00) will be on display showing its continued excellent progress and confirming the perspective that the hobby is alive and well with our younger members! Full trade support will be present ranging from tools, kits, electronic components to R-T-R models and books. Opening times are between 10am and 5pm. Admisson price is only £7 per person (no concessions) with any accompanied under 16 year old entering FREE! The venue is conveniently close to the M40 Junction 4 and the free vintage bus service will once again be operated between Wycombe Railway Station (Chiltern Line) and Wycombe Town Centre to the Cressex Community School and via the new large Park and Ride free car park at the Handy Cross Hub.

  12. Most road signs would have used 3” poles (76mm or 80mm these days) so using 1mm brass rod is what I have done.
  13. Another Making Quay Changing post, this time moving era to the 1950s The full post with more pictures can be read here https://grahammuz.com/2019/08/09/making-quay-changes-2-post-rationing-time-travelling-into-the-late1950s/
  14. Whilst not wanting to comment on the model colours , with respect to the orginal Bachmann versions they are indeed based on those originally built from 1949 (with the later 15" deep vents) the first of these were introduced as four coach sets 80 to 94 and were in fact in malachte green with no ownership branding and S prefix to numbers. The 1950 buiit 5 coach sets 830 to 849 were introduced in Crimson and Cream from new ,
  15. Although the Locomotives and carriages were the same base colour no varnish was aplied to the Locomotives due to the heat etc and therefore the coaches with the varnish would have indeed looked slightly darker.
