Fenchurch St Peter

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

  Thanks very much for the link Ben. Very interesting collection of pictures, as you say probably taken around the same time as the Andrew Ingram pictures. It is good to know that a relatively remote branch-line was recorded so well. This was also one of the aims of building the layout.

 

                                                                                                         Cheers

Hello

 

     Sorry Ben but I don't. It was not a regular working but ran on this route at the whim of the signallers though we run it and a possibly fictional northbound working as often as we think is reasonable.

 

                                                                              Cheers

Hello

 

    The Eastern Counties signs as well as the Fenchurch St Peter nameboards on the signal box  were made by James Barraclough at Track-side Signs to whom we always owe a large debt of gratitude.

 

                                                                                      Cheers

Which of the 'Blues' whisky wagons do you have on your layout? I think I've seen one with the 'Haig' advertising boards.

 

Any other future dates for exhibitions lined up?

Hello

 

       Most of the blues on the layout  are the Haig branded version though a few have had the boards removed. They used to belong to the late Keith Wright and were bought when his extensive stock was dispersed. I feel  very proud to have them and to continue to see them running. Fenchurch will be out next on 11th and 12th of November at Spalding which is about as close as you can get to Middle Drove which was the inspiration for the layout. If you come along please say hello. 

 

                                                                                                    Cheers

Hello

 

Fenchurch St Peter will be appearing at Sudbury Model Rail exhibition tomorrow, October 6th. Sadly, due to my continued ill health I will not be there but the layout will be in the more than capable hands of it's co-owners John Norton and Richard Coleman. If you see them say hello.

 

cheers

Wonderful to finally see the layout in the flesh at Sudbury today and have a chat. The class 24 was being very naughty!

Hello

 

Glad you enjoyed the layout, as you were no doubt informed I wasn't there due to health issues, which are now slowly improving. Any problems were probably down to the operators. I hope to be back at the controls in November when the layout makes it's final appearance this year at Blackburn. Sorry to have missed you but hopefully we can catch up somewhere in the future.

 

Cheers

 

George

Had a great time at Sudbury, as George mentioned, a few operator errors but not to bad

 

Sutton Loco Works Class 24 attracted a lot of interest

 

It was a great show, very friendly and lots of interest in the layout
