Everard Junction - 88 to 90 - BR Western Region

Hi Richard, I've been watching your channel for some time. I was saddened when you had to dismantle the old layout because of the baseboards after all of the effort you put into it, especially when you were still adding scenery like the massive train shed right until the decision to scrap it. I'm very impressed with your resolve to create a 'phoenix out of the ashes' and the very fast progress you have made. I think your super-elevated track looks superb, especially with the careful weathering and mix of colours, plus track-side detail like the cable trunking with the lids off etc, and the retaining walls, use of ground cover materials, moving roadway, building interiors and resprays. I think the new layout is going to surpass the old one, judging by what I have seen so far. The break-in scene with the transit van on the last video was very good. It would be nice if you could 'sneak' in the very last 25's, 40's and 45's which were just on the brink of withdrawal at around the time your layout is based. ;)

Bearing in mind the time it must take to put your YouTube videos together hardly surprising you don’t have time to update often here! Can only agree with Al brilliant stuff.

Enjoy your channel to.

 Cheers

Looks very good, particularly like the part lifted line along side the bay platform. Also the 'cleaner-than-the-ballast' concrete sleepers, which isn't modelled too often.

I particularly like that.  How did you do that?

Your massed passengers obviously never heard of social distancing... :D

 

But blimey Richard, I don't envy you painting that lot, at all!

 

Cracking job mate.

Hi Richard,

 

You did a really nice job on these coaches.  I'm not sure how you get stuff done so quickly.  This would be about a years worth of work for me...

 

Anyway, I wanted to say thanks for all the info you've posted about lighting in this video and in previous ones.  It's been helpful as I start to sort out some of my own passenger equipment.

 

I hope your company is able to weather the current situation and you're able to get back to work soon.  I started following your progress on the Granada awhile back and was looking forward to seeing some video of it on the road this summer.

Thanks Chris.  The Granada is coming on very well.  Obviously I'm not able to work on it at present but I remain hopeful of getting it on the road this year.  You can follow Granada progress on the below link.  I've documented everything I've done to it over the past 4 years.

Those were rare in the UK even back then. A model that was much more popular in Germany. Sobering to think that it is 45 years old.

It's looking great Richard. Are you going to let Ian Seabrook near it when you get it back on the road?
