The Oak Hill Branch - LBSCR / SECR 1905ish - Planning a new layout!


Recommended Posts

Last minute cancellation of tonight's livestream! I've been in pain with my neck all day, unfortunately it hasn't got any better, and even 5 minutes at the workbench is too much, never mind 3 hours!

 

Should actually be a video this Tuesday though!!

 

Thanks,

 

Gary

Thanks Ian!

 

Hopefully it shall be better soon. None of the painkillers I have taken today have helped, and I can't have anti-inflammatories due to my haemophilia, so it's a waiting game on that front.

It's livestream day! and tonight we will be working on restoring my GEM 009 Talyllyn Railway bogie brake carriage (which I one day hope to get the matching coach to go with it), I picked it up in a rather sorry state some time ago, and am looking forward to what should be a nice easy project!

Indeed he did James, the LBSC board of directors tried to change his mind, but he was having none of it. It would seem they were more interested in having 50 Terriers, and who could blame them!!

At the risk of being fair to J C Craven, I think this does not do him justice. Initially, he concentrated on getting Brighton Works to a viable state, with a trickle construction of new locos - usually in pairs. This allowed the adoption of technical innovations, of which, admittedly, Craven was rather fond.  The Locomotive Committee of the Board micro-managed him, refusing to order additional locos from external builders when they were required. When the need became desperate, they panicked and over-ordered locos that they could not pay for. Craven actually resigned on two occasions in exasperation. 

I have never entirely understood how Stroudley was able to operate under very different terms of reference. 

Best wishes
