  1. They are all on youtube and ive been flicking through them to find it. Nothing has come up but It definately has the feel of what I rememember. Although ive got a feeling this was more of a lower budget CITV programme.
  2. Im trying to recall something which I am reminded of every time I see those videos filmed from the front of a Lego train going around a garden or floor. 1980s. Had that similar fast sharp curves feel to it. may have been a sort of ghost train but more akin to a sort of indoor rollercoaster. I can't recall if it was a music video, intro to a kids tv show or what but its something I can remember from childhood and its bugged me for a long time.
  3. Bob Rowlands from Liverpool model railway club had his OO scottish layout Kinmore used several times in the filming of Brookside circa 95-96. The character Ollie Simpson had it in his garage. I remember when Bob was approached by Channel 4 at the Liverpool model railway show in the Albert dock for this.
  4. Also back to the original post, it was the closure of the Widnes CLC loop In 63 and opening of the chord from the St Helens and Runcorn gap railway in the early 60s which did away with the Workings via Ormskirk, Aintree Central and Halewood.
  5. My pooch and I had a look around the disused area around Ince Moss junction to Fir Tree House Junction today. Can recommend this book. Ive also recently been building the first of a rake of 15 Long Meg Widnes Anhydrite hoppers from Macgeorgie of this forums kit. This is a really nice kit to build..
  6. I always remember a childrens programme in the early 90s were it was set in the past and with giants. The giant lifts up a coach with people in it, when it cut from the set inside the coach with the actors inside the giant was holding a Hornby LNER celestory coach. Does anyone recall this?
  7. List of ford anglia colours. https://105eoc.com/technical/technical-information/paint-trim-codes/anglia-paint/?v=79cba1185463 I was in Halfords this afternoon and I never had this with me, I only went in for primers but I do have a train load of Minix Anglias to paint. I need to study up and see if Halfords do any or any close to these.
  8. Ive discovered a shot of Crofton West junction showing the now closed line to Crofton hall sidings In the centre distance in Modern Railways magazine September 1965. This area is proving difficult to find any shots of, Id like to see some of the triangle here and Crofton hall sidings, but so far its proving camera shy. This shot was by Eric Treacy.
  9. From October 1965 Modern railways magazine..
  10. Liverpool. 5th 6th September is Cancelled. https://www.lmrs.org.uk/Exhibition/Location.html
  11. Alan Walker shots of Class 14s at Featherstone. Working from Healey Mills to Hull. The shot with the class 37 he says they were all working. Click on each one for the Flickr page.
  12. Modern railways again, not sure what date at the moment.
