My search for 'big rack' produced a whole host of unsuitable responses....🤩

 

Lying down in a darkened room and rub over with the Radio Times should bring your vital statistics back to earth!

That first image above really does show the sheer size of HLJ

Absolutely... I spent a lot of time in real life on the bridge at the "left hand end" of HLJ, and that view on the model, with a yellow end just visible in the distance, is so "right"!

Even if the layout is not going to exhibited, I hope we continue to hear and see it on here in the future. It really is an awsome achievement.

the cooling towers/power station mini project

 

"mini" project? A 7mm scale cooling tower will be big enough to allow @AY Mod to move RMweb control from the volcano he currently operates from...

Wow 41 grids even with you not keeping them all that will still be a very impressive fleet makes my 2 probably going to be getting another so 3 triple grey examples seem meagre in comparison. Really nice use of the plinth might have to pinch that idea for myself

56s seem to have cult status - it's funny how some  classes do and some don't .

  

I wonder if it's down to numbers - ie the more numerous the class in a particular area with rail fans to elevate them  to this status . 20/25/ 45 never really seemed to do it - 56, 50, deltic managed it

They do have this cult status you’re right.

I think the sound these classes make helps.

I don't know whether these will be any use to you, but they were taken at a depot open day - I think at Frodingham, but the memory fades and it could have been Tinsley or Toton.2045466194_SJPimg049Cl.56-126@FrodinghamJun8402120108.jpg.81c258f786b4e4c43889a3aaa0c0df3b.jpg

They are scans of slides that were not kept very well and so are a bit grubby!
