Gosh - one has to look twice to see that some of these pictures are not of the real thing.

This might work better with the bridge cropped out, and without such strong light on the right.

 

I quite like it with the bridge in shot; it sets the scene and frames the picture quite nicely!

70 wagon freight?  Time for some video.

Pushing the boundaries a bit far there Jonathan. It is something about which I don't feel at all confident. I knew someone would suggest it though.

I've been thinking again. I know its bad for me, but I can't help it. I shall spend some of today playing about with backscene possibilities behind Spital Bridge. The problem seems to be that putting one in somewhere results in unwanted deep shadows somewhere else.https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/emoticons/default_scratch_one-s_head_mini.gif

 

Shall we have another look at that little Midland 3F? I won't insult it, as I don't wish to upset Clive again. Here it is resting.

and now joining the ECML briefly before returning to the Midland side.

I must say these Midland/LMS coaches are rather attractive.

With a neat and functional looking Deeley/Fowler development of the wonderful Johnson 0-6-0 hauling some lovely Reid designed  coaches, what can be better?

 

 

 

 

Except of course a Cravens, Derby and BRCW consist DMU train.

it seems it isn't going to rain.

 

That's what our forecast said and we've had two lots already this morning.

I am sure some kind person of this parish might volunteer to visit and do a video session. I would really enjoy seeing the results.

Hi Lloyd

 

That is a good question, I am sure there might be an answer somewhere.

 

A brass band contest... Or a fishing match

No rain at all down this way Jonathan, and the wind was not as strong as forecast either.

Is that a drinking fountain on the wall? If it is, well done, that will be the first such example I have ever seen on a model railway.

There are two of them Martin, one on Platform 2, and the other on 6. As usual, Peter Leyland was equal to the challenge.

I hope I don't get trampled in the rush!

Well done to him, a modelling first that I'm aware of which is a very difficult thing to do in 2019.

Update. The weather forecast was right. We splashed our way out to the 5th tee. My partner hit a good drive, I hit a  decent second shot, he got us to about 15 ft, I holed the putt, and we won the match. We splashed our way back, and went and had some drinks. Now for the final, 36 holes in a day.
