  1. The Farthing Layouts are just fabulous and I always enjoy your posts. The Siphon C is a particular favourite of mine - though the one you have modelled (1503 - Lot 1162 built March 1909 condemned May 1948) may well have operated by "C & J Harris of Calne" by 1927 and would have had roof boards "HARRIS BACON AND WILTSHIRE SAUSAGES, CALNE AND BRISTOL" and a panel between the centre and right hand doors stating "TO WORK BETWEEN CALNE AND BRISTOL TEMPLE MEADS" (as at March '29 from GW Siphons by Slinn). This may seem a little picky, but I do take my sausages seriously...

  3. Always good to see more from Farthing As to sausages, I'm not convinced. Slinn only records 1492 as receiving Harris branding before 1927. That was in 12/24, and I do wonder whether that is a typo as the others on adjacent lines are 12/34. In general, the Harris branding appears to have happened in the 30s as noted on p48. Assuming that Slinn's dates are those on which the branding was applied, rather than just a date on which it had been observed, then I reckon Mikkel is quite safe, at least until March 1929 Nick ps. Now look what you've done! The binding on my copy has started to give up and pages are falling out. Must take less interest in Siphons

  4. It looks like you had a good time and sounds like it too Jam Well done - I don't think I've the patience to actually exhibit a layout. I do enjoy wandering around taking snaps though so maybe one day I'll see Calshot in the flesh.

  5. Aargh, I knew there was a reason I was thinking of visiting the parents last weekend! Couldn't think what it was so just dithered about at home. Oh well! At least I put the finishing touches to my engine shed. Glad to hear you had a good time at the show and all went well.

  6. Glad you had a good time, I was a member of the club until I left the uk in 1995. I always found them to be a good bunch of chaps and caught up with a few of the members when I was over in Feb. Cheers Peter.

  7. Saw the layout in the flesh yesterday and was very impressed! Nice to see a layout i've followed online at an actual show for once, too many of them live up North somewhere! Great layout, and glad you had a good day.
