Interior of Princes Dock MDHB workshop/shed in preservation days.   Worth modelling if the shed door is open?

Is this a mobile 'tar furnace' on the left please?  Or something else?   A sand dryer? Preservation era image.   Duncan Models produces a 7mm tar boiler.

I was involved in the building of Regent Road - Chris Hewitts model based on Bramley Moor and the LOR switchback - the only place the overhead came to ground.

If we'd have had DCC in those days it would have been fantastic to have multiple pugs shutting back and forth on the coal railway - we had to wire it for conventional controllers and it was "fun" switching the point crossings and this limited the operation a bit - still fun though !

Thanks for your comments and for following this project.   Yes, I remember Regent Road well.   I have the magazine articles and some video too.    The High Level Coal Railway was a great place.

There is still a shortage of good 7mm road vehicles to match the realism of finescale railway modelling.

Did you know MDHB 26 is preserved at the Ribble Steam Railway? Photos here: https://ribblesteam.org.uk/exhibits/steam/avonside-1810-1918-m-d-h-b-no-26/

 

Similar to the Merseyside Museums loco which is sadly off display.  I may have a postcard of this. I'm still interested in the origin & fate of the little Barclay loco.

 

Thanks, and I know the card you mentioned.  The Barclay was Efficient, I  think, and it too is at the Ribble Railway.
