  1. Having accidentally lost the trackplan i drew, I thought it would be easier to have it digitally rather than draw it by again. So i used google maps, moved around until i was happy with the position and i saved it as a PDF. Grosmont Engine sheds - Google Maps.pdf It might not be clear as i'd like it to be but it'll do.
  2. Indeed. But it would make a great modelling project and it would look good in a disused section of track or a siding on a layout.
  3. I have been taken more screen shots of the car park entrance: Car Park entrance close up.pdf I've looked at it closely and it does look like there are two tracks going into the museum.
  4. I knew it would. it's actually a good method. I've used it several times.
  5. The coach and pencil trick is very good if you are dealing with curved platforms.
  6. I have not been to Locomotion yet but I have been to the NRM (several times) but I haven't been back there in quite a while. I was planning on going this year...
  7. 6634 is a 5600 (56xx) class 0-6-2T. The class were designed by Collett and built between 1924 and 1928. 6634 was built at Swindon Works and completed in August 1928. She worked for 35 Years and 8 months before finally being withdrawn in June 1964. 6634 is located at Peak Rail and is owned by Pete Waterman. She is currently under restoration. Pete also owns fellow GWR tank locomotives 5553, a 4575 2-6-2T which is also located at Peak Rail (along with sister engine 4588) and 5224, a 5205 2-8-0T (which left the famous Woodham Brother's scrapyard in October 1978.) Like 6634 and 5553, 5224 is located at Peak Rail. 9 of the class are preserved including 6697 which is on static display at Didcot Railway Centre.
