Enough of this banter about music I was pleased to have forgotten, let's have a few more photographs taken at the Worthing Show.

You don't really build the JLTRT van kits as the bodies are one piece resin mouldings. You just have to add the under frame parts, buffers etc and then it's all down to the paint. I bought three of the SR vans not that long ago so they didn't do that many shows.

Another fairly recent acquisition was the J6. It's such a nice model I am going to keep it rather than sell it on. I may get the chance to give it a run at a the Otterbourne open day.

If he sits on the fire escape every break he gets and reads his paper maybe all that rubbish strewn around is his?

The ends of sidings in the far corners of yards were often squalid, with weeds and rubbish much in evidence.

The sort of scene that few people would have photographed. Film was too precious.

A few more from Worthing - once they have run out there won't be more - the new owner collected Dock Green today - sad, but making a new project possible.

I'm going to miss this thread when you run out of photos.

 

 

 

Oh dear, sorry, but I am going to say goodbye with the last four shots from the Worthing show.

I am pleased that the very last picture should be of the J6. I will be keeping this model which is one of my favourites. 

I have enjoyed telling the story of Dock Green using RMweb. It has been very useful as I way of recording what (and how) I have modelled the scene. It has also helped to motivate me to keep going.

 

Thanks to all of you who have commented on the layout and from time to time have offered advice. All those "like" clicks have been an encouragement too. This will be my last post - the layout has gone to its new home and my new project Athena PA is just starting.

 

All the best...

Shame to see the last few pics. Thanks for sharing the Dock Green story Chaz and to whoever bought it Enjoy! 

I'll keep my eyes peeled for your next project Chaz.

Chaz,

 

thank you for an engaging, informative and entertaining few years.  I’m gutted that I never managed to see it “in the flesh”, but the thread, and the pictures therein, has been a marvellous story, well told.

 

I’m delighted that DG was sold, not scrapped, and I look forward to your next adventure!

When you start the layout thread, can you please post a link in this thread as a reminder please, otherwise I might well miss the start.

 

Thanks, it's been great watching and has provided some inspiration in some areas.

Thread has already started - see 28 October above.

Plans are up and there seems to be no shortage of advice at present!!!

Yes, that's right Hal. I am posting on the "Narrow Gauge Modelling Online" forum as this seems more appropriate. You will have to sign up to follow the topic but that can't hurt, can it?

 

Once you are up and running search for "Athena". I don't think the link will work unless you have signed in, but here it is...

 

Athena PA - in the Furness Valley
