  1. Conversely, if you want to model to scale, real railways get as close as 11’ centres, 44mm in 4mm to the foot.
  2. Worcester still hasn’t got colour light signals 70 years after nationalisation, 30 years after the effective end of the regions.
  3. The signals would not be paired deliberately. There would be an entry signal at each end, and possibly an intermediate signal for each direction, to allow two trains to follow each other in the same direction. The positioning of these will depend on visibility, gradients, speed restrictions etc. as applicable in the direction of travel. With colour light signals, its probably track circuit block, (no tokens). The location cabinets are likely to be adjacent to signals or at the start/end of track circuits. If cable joints are needed, they can be entirely sealed in a cable joint in the tro
  4. PM me with your address, if you are close enough to me I’ll quote you mates rates to put a supply in.
  5. For every modeller who records his work in detail on RMWeb or social media, how many are there who hide their lights under bushels, like this? I really like it. Well done sir.
  6. Not a bad “what if” premise for a layout. 1979. Lots of very tired, patched and bodged standard steam locomotives, serving stations taking design cues from Birmingham International and Milton Keynes, wires going up and shiny new 87xxx starting to appear.
  7. Alternatively, fix vertical 2x1 battens to the walls, and fix brackets, accurate for level, to those.
  8. Google Fischer frame fixings. These are used to fix replacement window and door frames to the walls. DIY sheds do them, ScrewFix or Toolstation might be cheaper.
  9. Norton Hall between Honeybourne and Mickleton in the Cotswolds have one of the original plates in the foyer.
  10. The Worcester Foregate to Malvern line crosses the River Severn and it’s flood plain on a high brick arched viaduct. At one time a goods branch left the main on the north side, descending steeply to quay level where Pitchcroft grandstand is now. The remnants are visible from Google Earth. Put a pin in the roundabout just north of where the railway crosses Croft Road.
  11. Google “Sabre” society for all British roads. Lots of info discussion and photos of pre warboys signs.
  12. Inside admission allows you to walk around inside the engine sheds and workshops, outside admission only allows you access to the open yard and walk between the buildings.
  13. A shrunken version of Didcot coaling stage is available from Scalescenes.
