The bottom one at first glance thought was a 31 pulling out of the back road at Exeter Central and heading off to Black Boy road tunnel for Exmouth Jct


Yes I hadn’t thought of that but I suppose it does a little bit. 
That would make an interesting little model actually if you just did the section between the bridges with the old graffitied signal box…

A couple more photos I did yesterday. Already shown in my thread in the 7mm forum. But several said I should  them here too.

 

The sepia tint is done via a free online  photo ageing tool.

 

Cheers Ade.

Ade,

 

Whilst some are supposed to look realistic I would argue that these look like the real thing when done in this format, excellent modelling and glad you listened to your followers !

Hmm are you sure that's a toad... looks like an ER 4 wheel short guards van

 

Toad was also the telegraphic code for brake vans on LNER although generally they were called Toad (insert letter here) eg Toad D.  Am sure some LNER experts will be able to say more.

Well I never I've always assumed Toad was a GWR name, every day is a school day - thank you

That one is a 'Toad E', diagram 64, that particular one is from the last batch built at Shildon in 1935. They were developed from the NER Diagram V4 10T van.
