  1. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cruckton-Railway-Station-Photo-Edgebold-Ford-Crosgates-Shrewsbury-Line-1-/262480735999 Hmm Bullhead rail - platform railings - but so much else looks right....
  2. And heres another view of vehicles from Worcester's train.. from Brian Thomas's Hymek web site http://www.shelbrooke.co.uk/Hymek/46.jpg As Mike says I am sure I remember some earlier vehicles too...
  3. So looking at Worcester's breakdown train A distant view here on Miac http://www.miac.org.uk/worcestershedsrnp.html - 5th photo down Looks like we have crane + Hawkesworth tender (presumably for extra coal and water) + 12t van + 2 coaches + another vehicle which is unclear plus brake van. Heres a close up of one of the coaches from RCTS - ? Collett https://rcts.zenfolio.com/rolling-stock/br/hA87F7DE9 That will make an interesting train!
  4. Can confirm band is paint on the green locos Had to be added in microstrip when we did 5528 - used a green 31/0 for this , engine room door grille added and zorsts sorted too Has been through the washer a few too many times....
  5. Ah well - inevitably optimistic! CLPG are now saying the New Year... but no news on the web site at http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/parkway except a picture of a Voyager - with doors closed and no-one getting on or off!!!!
  6. This page may help for starters http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/g/gloucester_eastgate/ Scroll down to a map including the shed area in steam days
  7. Nice photo! Wonder if that is the shed the loco is in on the other side of the hedge? Hornby did a wagon....https://www.hattons.co.uk/250921/hornby_r6805_three_plank_open_wagon_granomac_criggion_/stockdetail.aspx Also interesting military history in the area.....http://shropshirehistory.com/military/camps.htm
  8. How about this one? Works no. 7026/1928, British Quarrying Co., Criggion, Montgomeryshire
  9. A pre war sentinel perhaps? https://www.rtmodels.co.uk/rt models pre war sentinel 1.jpg 7164/47184 did work on Clee Hill - and of course Sentinel are/were a Shrewsbury company....
  10. As one of Terry's lunch time operators in the past I can vouch for both the operability of the layout and also the interest the fantastic attention to detail generates from observers. Prospective purchasers will not be disappointed.....
  11. Good find Charles - and the one with the driver climbing out of the cab looks like the same shunt move!
  12. Ah the camera never lies! May look pleasantly rural but the station is overshadowed by a massive power station - Buildwas between Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury on the Severn Valley Railway with some careful framimg! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buildwas_railway_station
  13. Hmm PWM 654 did spend a lot of time at Newland - but the track layout is wrong - and I cant make it match the plan for Hookagate, Fairwater, Theale or Radyr either.... as published in IRS PWM book
