Bleat Wharf. Breakfasts and Backwaters. The continuing adventures of Norman Lockhart.

No kids so no experience, but at our wedding in 2015 Sherry and I did a joint speech to about 50 guests, which we had concocted over tea in bed that morning, using minimal notes if any. It can be done!

I have a father-of-the-bride speech to prepare and am thinking I should take a leaf from the Captain's erudite and succinct phraseology. 

 

You'll be there all day and confuse the hell out of them if you do ! :read:

Mainline 37420-PO11 3 plank wagon in BR brown. 

 

I've had it for years.

Thanks Al, Nick.

 

All the photos above were taken over the last four weeks and the last week ahead of the Taunton show was a tad on the frantic side.  I just wanted to make sure that what I was going to display at the show was good enough to be there.  

 

Here is another view of the 3 plank wagon. Standard Mainline apart for the more recent couplings. 

 

Bleat will now be tidied up to remove some of the rough edges before it's next show.

I have to admit I couldn't see any rough edges...

Very kind of you to say so. There were quite a few, Stubbers. 

 

I shall document them as I make the necessary adjustments.

 

In any event, one of the next jobs is to finish the display side of the layout, which will include this. 

 

These words sum up my idea of Bleat Wharf and what it is that I am trying to convey in my modelling.

I thought I would share two photos of Mutton, taken over the weekend.

I do like 0-6-0 tender locomotives! You need a Collett Goods Rob! 

 

Best wishes,

I didn't see any rough edges either but then I suppose it is a bit like a music performance. The performer knows where all those little errors are that not noticed by the audience.

 

As I said to you, I feel you have caught a real sense of S & D atmosphere with the layout that places it geographically however much you might like a J70 or J15!

 

Would now like to see the other layouts in the saga for real.

Mr Brinkly sir, I am astounded and amazed by your photos of Mutton taken last Sunday.

 

 

 

 

Especially as the layout on show was Bleat Wharf.

Rob,
I really wish I had longer than a couple minutes with which to gaze in awe at Bleat Wharf and take photos, as it truly features some fantastic modelling. You may see the rough edges, but trust me; not many people (if any!) do. I can feel pretty confident in saying that given I am very much in the same mindset; I knew exactly what was "rough" on Sandy Shores, yet for some reason all I seemed to receive were compliments! Seriously, I really hope I get a proper chance to see Bleat Wharf; you seemed to have developed a knack for modelling the last years of steam very well indeed. I thought the concrete roadway at the front was particularly convincing; not least because of the really subtle textures you've managed to recreate. Given that John Betjeman's film immediately sprung to mind when I wandered on over during the end of the show, I think you've done a cracking job.

Ahem.........it could have happened...I could have easily brought Mutton by accident given the rushing about of the  week before the show...........in fact I did have Mutton's stock with me.......
