  1. Thanks very much Mr.Jarhead, but this modification is taking FAR too long!
  2. As others have thought, the Sentinel is at Criggion Quarry, on the branch off the Shropshire & Montgomeryshire Some more photos on John Turner's Flickr site here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/blue-diesels/albums/72157624214785241/page4
  3. S & M yes, but quite where I don't know as yet. Several of these vans ended up as huts and storage sheds Great photo, Cheers, Dave.
  4. The extra point rodding is done, waiting to be blacked and soldered together. Complicated by the fact that this area contains a baseboard joint... The rodding stools are whitemetal casting from Model Signal Engineering. They come six rods wide, so you can cut them to the size you want. In this case I added an extra one to what was existing.
  5. Quite so, Gaugemaster don't actually produce a Combi with feedback
  6. Many "normal" can motors are circular in cross-section, like Segami and earlier Mashimas.
  7. The cream-coloured panel Gaugemasters are not feedback: The black-panelled ones ARE feedback:
  8. Thanks to this thread, I've been having a good look at this area. The incline and infrastructure in the photos are a much later installation then that shown on the map (which is dated 1892-1914) Here is a later version, dated 1944 - 1967: https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=16&lat=54.5483&lon=-3.5936&layers=170&right=BingHyb (if it works!)
  9. There is a little bit of work to do in the middle, both sets of point rods drive two turnouts in a crossover arrangement, so yes there is another rod to add.
  10. I vaguely remember (haven't looked for it to confirm yet) reading that Stony Stratford was sold. It may have been in the original Peco book, AND I may have imagined it!
  11. I can see that I'm FAR too precious about what goes on underneath!
  12. A bit more progress. I'm sure the rodding is far from correct, and Mr.Stationmaster will pick me up on this. If he sees it... And fixing the former location of the lever frame, in the loop near the water column.
  13. The timber loading stage is taking shape. A scale 16ft x 6ft, the top is built around a slab of 4mm plywood, the posts are 5mm square stripwood mounted on a card base. Top surface is Obeche stripwood, 1.7mm x 5mm I'm moving the lever-frame to a more logical position nearer the station throat, now that there is more space for it. I'm cheating a bit with the rodding, as rather that remodel it with all the cranks in front of the frame, I'm going to leave things as they are and box in the area. I hope this will look ok and hide the subterfuge! I will have to make alterations to the other end, where the frame was originally.
  14. The later version of the Charford Branch, which included the mainline at Marshwood Junction, was featured in Model Railway Journal No.100 in 1998. The trackplan was in the following edition, 101 Cheers, Dave.
