Fenchurch St Peter

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

      It is an EFE model. Price didn't matter as I got it for free. just realized when I looked at it that I weathered it a little and also put a zig-zag marker board on the back.

 

 

                                                                   Cheers

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing this layout at Glasgow, very evocative of East Anglia, sorry that you next exhibitions are a bit out of my way, would love to see it again.

Hi George

 

Could you check your inbox please?  I sent you an exhibition invite a couple of days ago and I don't think you've seen it.

In your fictitious world, does the grain factory / silos receive coal deliveries in 16T mineral wagons?

Hello

 

     Answers to two questions. Coal is not delivered to the grain store but fuel oil for to power the dryers is occasionally delivered in 35T tanks. Sadly Ian the layout will not be in the NW till 2020 at Preston. It will be at the NEC this year as well as shows over the Midlands, South and of course East Anglia over the next few years. To Lee in Bedford it will be at Peterborough in October. Thanks as ever for the interest and kind words.

 

                                                                                                                  Cheers

George, have you built any new wagons for your layout or made any minor alterations / additions? Some ex SR 12T vans would look great in the goods yard.

Hello

 

      Unless you count the Condemned/scrap wagons now on the did-used line at the back that used to be the SMJ line to Woodford Halse. These were weathered and detailed for us by our esteemed colleague Mr Richard Coleman.

 

                                                                                                                       Cheers

These are some of the scrap/condemned wagons, however this is on our Towcester layout, not Fenchurch St Peter.

Nobby,

I think George is still in holiday mode and has got his layouts mixed up. Glad to have you back George, you were missed at Trainwest.

Cheers.

Hello

 

     I obviously should have had an even longer holiday Paul. Oddly enough that was the gist of a message I received in The Virgin Islands, 'don't hurry back, in fact don't come back we can manage without you' . Good to be back though, off to Stowmarket on Sunday with Georgemas Jct and the A Team. Perhaps John could put the picture on the right thread. Oh almost forgot many thanks to you Paul and Adrian for doing such a great job at Trainwest.

 

 

                                                                                                                      Cheers

Hello

 

        Fenchuch St Peter will be making it's second public appearance at the Mid Essex MRC show in Shenfield on September 17th. We will have a surprise guest operator helping to replace one of our regular brethren who has something better to do that day. See you there I hope.

 

                                                                                      Cheers

Hello

 

     Fenchurch St Peter will be venturing out to Peterborough next weekend to appear at the National Festival of Railway Modelling. This will probably the closest it will be exhibited to the long closed station of Middle Drove which inspired the layout so it will be a bit of a sentimental journey for us. As usual we will have a celebrity guest operator with us. 

 

                                                                                                   Cheers

 

                                                                                                               George

Well done.

Linda and I had a trip over to Peterborough today.  Amongst the layouts was this gem from George.  Up to Georges usual high standard.  

 

A couple of views from one end:

Finally on the way home a stop off at Whittlesea showed a familiar look:

The use of sound that was not overpowering was very effective.  Well done.

Don't worry about nobby who built the boards, wired the layout, built the control panel, built the goods shed, station building and pub, otherwise I agree it is up to Georges high standard Edited by Nobby (John)
