  1. ON WEST HIGHLAND LINES by Robert Robotham The front cover of this book has a picture of a Standard Class 4MT 2-6-0 No 76001 double-heading with a Black 5 on 20th May 1960 and a picture of a B1 No 61278 double-heading another Black 5 on 15th May 1961. Page 36 has a picture of a Standard Class 5 No 73151 with Caprotti valve gear dated May 1960. First 2 photos by Mike Mensing, third from Colour-Rail. Hope this info is useful JIM MAC
  2. Isn't there a copy of the plans for Kentallen station buildings on the wall of the bar inside the Holly Tree along with the old photos? WWW.oldappin.com has some interesting photos of the Ballachulish extension as does the RCAHMS website. There is an article in THE TRUE LINE (The Journal of the Caledonian Association) No. 81 about a proposed line from Oban to Fort William terminating at Banavie at the end of the Caledonian Canal. Before Kinlochleven was built, one of the options was to build the housing for the workforce at North Ballachulish and construct a narrow gauge (3 foot gauge) railway line to Kinlochleven along the north shore of Loch Leven. good luck with the modelling JIM
  3. That's a fine model of the station building. By the way, how did you make or where did you buy the ground signal? cheers, JIM
  4. Hi Gary very impressive modelling, how did you construct the platforms/platform faces. cheers 63C
