Looking forward to seeing more.

Roadrailer depot was I believe in Great Easton/Lt. Canfield. Probably the old airfield siding. There is a picture of the train at Braintree but most of the testing was towards Bishops Stortford and that mainline. My OO Scale Roadrailer kits:

Oh wow... Really getting into it isn't he! 

Good luck. Certainly enough detail coming through for a 7mm version.

Thanks for posting. I am watching that thread too.

Just a quick update.

 

Took delivery of a third Dapol Esso tanker at the recent Uckfield show and snapped up one of the LLC Class 15 baragains from Hattons. I had been after an original condition version for some time and was eying up a slightly discounted version at another retailer. I am glad I waited as this one was a complete bargain.

I could do with one or two more of these tankers so I can run a short oil train to Braintree goods yard. 5 or 6 wagons, two barriers, a loco and brake van will just about fit the cassette! 

 

All for now

Sorry about the lack of posts recently - modelling time severely limited.

 

Santa was kind this year abnd in addition to a goodly supply of books, he left a green Dapol 08 and three Heljan OBA wagons to add to the one I already had thanks to a certain Liverpool retailer having a rather good sale.

 

Anyhow here are some pictures of the only two boards I can put up presently

I also treated myself to the new Peco Police box and the photo below shows the partly completed structure next to the Black Notley bus shelter. I was going to place it next to the phone box that is destined to stand here but the Police Box is too big!

 

post-3038-0-68993500-1546407757_thumb.jpg

 

In reality these things were only installed in metropolitan cities (can anyone confirm otherwise). However it is presumed that Black Notley has no Police station and the Chief Constable of the Essex Constabulary felt that some of the village locations in the county would benefit and enable a greater Police visibility. That's my story anyway. Since I took this I have painted it and will now look to install the windows. The boxes were red in Scotland until the 1960's and the advent of a certain time traveller when they were repainted blue.

 

The final photo shows the site with the phone box. The Police Box can now be installed on the other side of the bus shelter.

 

All for now

Day off today so doing some work on the layout.

 

Police box now painted with transfers added.

 

It needs a coat of Satin Varnish which I am out of so that will have to be done later in the week.

Its a very simple kit to build. The lamp has not been fixed in yet as I don't want the varnish covering it

Hi Paul, some great pics, the 08's are so good, and I love the Old Police Box, excellent stuff mate.

I am afraid I am not as quick at doing things as you Andy!

 

However the signal boxes are now practically done. Photos to follow at some point

Police box is now finished and posed on the layout. As explained earlier this is not likley to be its final location as it looks too big for the space. I am quite pleased with this albeit I think the kit is a tad on the expensive side.

 

Now going to finish off those signal boxes. I have some glazing to repair and then the roofs can go on.
