  1. There is a photograph of LNWR 2-2-2 approaching Shrewsbury coming off the Welshpool line at Sutton Bridge about 1882. This was part of Longsight No. 2 turn: 7.00am Manchester London Road to Cheadle 8.05am Cheadle to Manchester London Road 9.30am Manchester London Road to Crewe 10.45am Crewe to Stafford 12.45pm Stafford to Shrewsbury 2.25pm Shrewsbury to Welshpool 3.55pm Welshpool to Shrewsbury 5.35pm Shrewsbury to Crewe 7.18pm Crewe to Manchester London Road Source HMRS Journal Volume 12 No 4
  2. Apologies for the late posting. It is a work in progress albeit very slowly... the baseboards measure 400mm x 800mm from Tim Horn. Point, there is only one, C&L. Buildings TimberTracks altered standard designs. The warehouse has not had the awning added yet... Wired for DC and DCC. Too much time spent enjoying DCC sound locos!
  3. I would add and exhibiting it but would forget publishing in a magazine. More fun in building and exhibiting IMHO!
  4. I have a part built 0 gauge layout (shunting plank) on top of two Billy bookcases. The fiddle yard is extra and awaiting building!
  5. Also occurred on the Nantmawr branch, see https://www.flickr.com/photos/gone_with_regret/35057223182/. This is mawddwy1’s site.
  6. No diesel locomotives appeared at the Shrewsbury end of the line unless you count when the line was truncated and 08s worked from Coton Hill into the Abbey Foregate oil depot.
    Always an excellent show for O gauge modellers and those thinking of trying O gauge.
  7. Very likely. As a rough guide a seven year plus overlap is possible.
  8. An enjoyable issue but two of the book reviews on page 131 have ended up mixing up the details of two books in each case. So what were the reviews meant to be, ‘The King’s Cross Story’ or ‘Atlas of Railway Station Closures’ and ‘LMS Review No. 3 or ‘Southern Style - After Nationalisation 1948-1964’?
  9. The 1.5 pm Wrexham to Bala and the return departure from Bala at 3.25 pm to Wrexham are shown in the 1st October 1945 until further notice CWP as part of the roster for No. 2 Croes Newdd Auto and 2 trailers. There is a note ‘A’ against the 3.25 pm working that Third, Van Third attached for Bala scholars - Saturday’s and school holidays excepted. Do you have photos of the auto train workings for your 1956 CWP? GWR and BR CWPs for Chester Division are extremely rare. I only know of 3 - GWR 1922, GWR 1945 and BR WR Summer 1957. The BR one was included in a display in the 1980s held at Bala Museum (?). ‘X’ is corridor stock.
  10. The BR LMR Southern Section Sectional Appendix to Working Timetable and books of Rules and Regulations, June 1969, page 292 contains the same information as EddieK posted as does the April 1991 version, Section C General Instructions, pages C10 and 11. The BR WR Cardiff Division Sectional Appendix, April 1969, which includes the lines south of Craven Arms, does not give this detail but refers to the BR WR General Appendix, pages 39-43, "Working of Multiple Unit Mechanical Diesel Trains".
