In the closing hours of the evening a class 08 was seen shunting PCA wagons down on New Street Yard.

Just like on my Kings Arms diorama there are going to be some interesting photo opportunities.

Nice attention to detail.

 

I like the chain link fencing and the yellow railings. Where did they come from?

Put the scalemodelscenery.com back scene on Woodland Heath, completely changes the feeling.'

This was my view outside the kitchen window this morning.

 

post-7403-0-93312600-1513094287_thumb.jpg

 

So I decided to go to someplace less snowy and have a pint with a nice view.

It was nice a quite day at the Kings Arms until there was a gentle rumbling that had me jump up and grab my camera.  57309 Pride of Crewe was powering along the canal light engine.

 

post-7403-0-58282500-1513094734_thumb.jpg

 

Standing outside I was able to catch some shots as it went by.

It then headed off down the Canal

I decided to pay for my drink and give chase; eventually catching 57309 outside of Woodland Heath TMD

As it went by 57309 slowed by the points for the TMD entry and I decided to wait and see if it was heading in. It was.

The driver shut her down inside the shed and got into the waiting van and left. I got back in the car and headed back to the snow

The photo backdrop for Woodland Heath is very effective - fits the kind of light-industrial suburbia look very well, and the hazy desaturated look works well for the impression of distance.
