Pre Grouping Workbench content links

Recommended Posts

As the topic title and description says really.

A place to add links (either to threads or blogs) to Pre Grouping related workbench content here on the forum. In due course I will try and add links to other layouts that I can find.

 

Feel free to post to this thread with the links to your own workbench threads or blog and I will create a list of links in this OP

Amongst my current projects is building a replica of the first LBSCR locomotive shed at Midhurst

which was timber built and dates from soon after the branch from Pulborough/Petworth reached Midhurst.

This shed was removed in 1907 and my efforts are based on the photo in Branch Lines to Midhurst, with attribution to Lens of Sutton.

 

Construction is based on an undershape created from photo mounting board, then with every single plank being real wood and put in place individually with PVA.. Windows and remainder of planks have still to be added. And that is in 4mm.!

Inside has been sprayed black, as I expect it would have been pretty dirty in there.

As you can see from the photos, it is not yet finished, but I hope that the result of this method of construction can be clearly seen. Even the clerestory planks are where they should be.

One day I will finish it as it is a labour of love!

For anyone who may be interested, my workbench blog is here http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/blog/965-srmans-workbench-blog/

 

 

Let me say from the outset that only a small proportion of my entries are relevant to the pre-grouping era. My most recent entries have included an LCDR/SECR brake van from Roxey Mouldings and a class 350 / 450 conversion (ultra-modern privatisation era!). Also in my fairly recent offerings is an ex-LSWR G16 4-8-0T, albeit in 1960s BR guise.

I hope to have a look soon at some of the other links people have been posting here. :)

Question is, will it have the characteristic 'lean' that the original shed developed? :D

No, it will not have the lean because my modelling period is around the time it was built, and it was not built with a 'lean;!

Gareth Ashenden has said one can never have too many pre-grouping wagon threads so I boldly started my own workbench thread:

 

http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/113035-more-pre-grouping-wagons-in-4mm-latest-ratio-lnwr-wagon-kit-archaeology/page-1

 

So far I've posted 4mm scale (00) plastic kit builds for MR, GWR, and LNWR wagons which stimulated some interesting discussions on red and grey (or possibly just raked over the ashes of previous debates) - thank you to all of you who have been kind enough to contribute!

 

I hope to move on to whitemetal, which will take me to the L&Y and North Eastern railways. Also, more sheeted wagons - I'll start collecting used fruit teabags now.
