Clarence Dock and Other Scenes --- A little different view of things.


Recommended Posts

Hi 6990WitherslackHall.      I have had the 'Rocket'  18 months, so no it is not the new one.  I received it from a member of the family  who gets railway related items for me for Christmas.   Never to look a gift horse etc.    it runs well.

I have started to build a small goods yard at Clarence Dock  to increase the variety of wagons etc. and have more trains running.

Small loading/unloading docks big enough for one or two wagons.

In the way things are sorting trucks to the correct dock, it is a form of Inglenook Sidings.

A Dewsbury Market Place to Leeds Central DMU at Crown Point Junction. Ash Farm Fields and lake behind.
Dewsbury Market Place Station actually closed to passenger trains in 1930 and goods trains in 1961. Yet one could board a 'Special Train' there in the 1950s (and did). The station was one of my favourites albeit it had a run-down atmosphere. Maybe that was why i liked it. I do dislike 'prim and proper'.    On the layout  Dewsbury  Market Place Station remained open.

The diesel layout is a secondary route and has its own timetable of mainly DMUs and local trains running.  Then when there is any engineering work on the main line  there are diverted trains running on the layout.   Here is some pictures of one such diverted train.    A diverted Up Thames-Forth Express with Class 45  45048 The Manchester Regiment in charge.

Class 47  47583 County of Hertfordshire  on a diverted Newcastle to Liverpool service.

Some branches off the trees  smack the side of the coaches as the train passes.   (A reminder of my train journeys north of Ladybank.)   Not everything is perfect.  Nature in control.

I borrowed locomotive 46225 Duchess of Gloucester for a couple of days.

Here she is on a Up Thames Clyde service.

It took me back 'a few years'  when I used to travel on the Thames- Clyde.

 

I am 'smitten'.  I must get a couple of LMS    engines.

I purchased some pictures of Leeds Warehouses  as I remember them.  They now form  the backscene at Sovereign Street.    The idea to give an enclosed, almost claustrophobic  atmosphere.
