  1. BANKING FREIGHT UP THE 1 IN 50 OUT OF BATH GREEN PARK Freights had to be banked up Devonshire Bank through Devonshire tunnel on up Lyncombe Vale to the entrance to Combe Down tunnel where the gradient changed to 1 in 100 down and the banker dropped off returning to Bath Junction under protection of the 'Bath Banking token' Over Watery Bottom viaduct with Mogers bridge in the distance just before the entrance to Combe Down tunnel Under Mogers bridge and the banker comes to a stand watching the guards van disappear into the gloom of Combe Down tunnel. The banker is allowed 14 minutes for the push up the bank and return to Bath Junction T The view from the guards van as it enters Combe Down tunnel and the banker comes to a halt

  4. Thanks for your kind comments. It is one of those jobs that I had been putting off as such a large project. What got me started was the Gauge 0 Guild Virtual show October last year where one of the demonstrations was for 3D printing. This opened the door to have the pillars made plus I was introduced to someone who could laser cut the bowstring girders and the horizontal 'X' beams and suddenly it all came together. 4 Months in construction but it has been a game changer for the layout. Am very pleased.
  5. SEPTEMBER 2021 VIDEO Its taken since mid August to put this video together and edit but finally here it is. A broad selection of weekday and Summer Saturday workings from the 1957 timetable including the Pines Express. Freights both up and down the S&D and on the Mangotsfield line and some ‘on shed’ shots. Watch out for banking up the steep 1 in 50 through Lyncombe Vale with train engine 7F 53802 and banker 4F 44560. Both R/C battery operated and with sound. I hope that you enjoy the latest video from BATH GREEN PARK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHUbtMpVDBo&t=3s

  8. BATH GREEN PARK in 7mm THE UP MAIL 92205 arrives 18.56 platform 2 on Bath duty No 2, the 15.40 UP MAIL. The loco alternating daily with Bath duty No 1 The Pines Express and gives the loco a lighter duty on alternate days as Bath duty No 1 comprises 2 trips up and down the line in 24 hours, nearly 300 miles. The UP MAIL so called as it conveys mail in vans attached to the front of the train which are conveyed on to Bristol connecting at Mangotsfield station with the northbound mail train from Bristol. Such was the importance of this train on the S&D that it had priority over all other movements on the line and nothing was allowed to delay it. It is of interest that the corresponding DOWN MAIL was the 2.40 off Bath, a freight train with the empty returning vans attached at the front for the trip south. Now try to picture a mail train comprising a 30 or 40 wagon freight. Conjures up an odd picture but that was the S&D!
