A Kings Cross to Catterick Camp troop train has run to Darlington, where the V2 has run round. It is passing through Croft Spa on its way back to Eryholme junction (next station South) where it will turn off onto the Richmond branch.  At Catterick Bridge the V2 will run round again and pull the train chimney first up the hill to Catterick Camp.

 

Each train passed through Croft Spa twice on its journey, Northbound chimney-first then Southbound tender-first.  The loco and stock then passed through  Northbound again as ecs to Darlington. 

 

Although the Catterick camp branch appears to have been RA9 V2s were the usual motive power for the train, with an occasional B1.

Pic taken before the ballasting was finished, which is why it is scruffier than I usually manage.

The Talbot Valley Rail Road 60 tonner #43 once belonged to Bethlehem Steel where she worked in a steel mill. Now she has exchanged heavy industry for the relative quiet of switching cars in a forestry environment since she was purchased by the TVRR. She is seen in the west yard at Benson with a Rock Island wooden gondola.

Three more visitors to Benson, all from the same railroad, The Bangor & Aroostook, but all with different liveries.

First up is the most modern being an EMD GP 38 #83 in a dark blue with yellow lettering and silver trucks, seen rolling over the crossing into the west yard at Benson.

Another visitor to Benson this time a 2400 HP Alco RSD15 # 2403, they were available as either a high or low hood. Rail fans dubbed the low short hood version “Alligators” The loco featured is owned by the Lake Superior & Ishpeming Railroad, a short line in Michigan.

Popular with rail fans if not the railroads themselves as only 75 were built.

That's lovely. Hard to find anything in that photo that says it's a 4mm scale model and not the real thing!

A short running session featuring one of my Bachmann Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway 7F Class 2-8-0s, No. 53810, edited with real sound. 
Sounds are provided by preserved class members from my sound collection, captured at various Gala and Preserved Railways over the past few years.
Here we see No. 53810 in BR late black, with typical weathered finished, hauling a short goods train.
Hope you enjoy!

The Sun is shining this morning as I look over the Mills Lane Bridge and see 25054 and 40007 in Bridge End Sidings.

Not one of mine, this time, though I  added the hedge and grass in the foreground. The line between the hedge and the fence is a baseboard join.

Stanley Terrace was built by the late Trevor Webster as an entry in the N-gauge Society's annual model making competition.  It won.  When we built "Rise Park" Trevor gifted a number of his winning buildings as well as making some new ones.  The yard that was attached to the right of Stanley Terrace originally was relocated to the front of the layout, and a different yard (also a Buildings Cup winner) added to the end- the one that can just be seen.  The brewery in the background was built specially for the layout, but I can't remember whether by Trevor or Geoff Warren.

 

The original of this terrace stood in Newark on Trent, behind Northgate Station.  The two-storey row opposite still stands.

That is superb.  Hard to decide whether it's a model or the real thing.

Thanks Mike but to be honest all I supplied was the place to run Andy's model.

He photo shopped the image I seem to remember, it was some time ago.

Hi Callum,

 

That looks really good and the whole setting seems very 'North Somerset'.

 

The only thing that would further enhance the scene, in my view, is some line-side fencing, because the immediate railway environs just seem a little too open?
