I'd completely forgotten about this until I was trawling through old photos to post.

 

Here's what it looks like with Ladmanlow parked next to Cawdor:

Seeing what's there now, it's hard to believe it once looked something like this AND I can remember it being so.

Thanks guys, really appreciate your comments.

 

I'm surprised how well they blend together - there's no camera trickery, or photoshoppery, they are just laid on a trestle next to each other.

That's what they call serendipity I think.

I didn’t know you’d made a model

of Cawdor Quarry! Had you intended to do the full Matlock site?

Hi Jay,

 

No it was never my intention to do the whole thing, I just haven't got the room. As with Ladmanlow, I wanted a small layout which captured the essence of the site, so I just modelled the Tarmac Roadstone buildings at the Matlock end. The idea was to have somewhere to run a Peckett or two without having to invoke Rule One.

 

I hope to return to it one day to add a second board with these buildings on it:

That should go into Andy Y's Realistic Photos page, I had to look a couple of times, and I'm still not convinced its a Model Al.

 

Thanks Andy. I can't remember if I did post that one, somewhere on the "How Realistic" thread, but it's so long now I can't find it.

 

Al.
