Another random picture day

I’d hoped to report on some more modelling, but it’s been mainly gardening to try and clear most of the jungle before the weather breaks.  We’re winning, and got rid of a load of pruned branches to friends and neighbours today for winter fires – all at 2m distance, unlike all those silly people sunbathing on UK beaches.

But I hope to have a picture of some Warwells next time around, as I’m making steady progress with them.

For today, a few more that I’ve culled from the internet.  First, two pictures of the ex-LBSCR shed at Three Bridges.

Next another ‘bridge’ – Lille Bridge on the London Underground network.  The Underground continued to use steam locos for service trains for some years after they had disappeared from British Railways.  An ex-GWR Pannier is to be seen here.

Last of my postcard collection – A Great Eastern ‘E4’ 2-4-0, as restored for the National Collection.  These little locos hung on very late on the Cambridge to Mildenhall branch, and hence this one went into preservation.   I think that I first saw it in the old tram depot in Clapham High Street, when there was part of the National Museum there.

And a lovely shot of the Folkstone Harbour branch in 1954.  This would make a great cameo in a larger scale.  The loco is, I think, an ex-SECR ‘R’ class 0-6-0T.

And it wouldn’t be Friday without a couple of modelling challenges.  Trackwork, anyone?  Looks as if it’s the entry to a tram or trolley depot.

And finally, I saw the pictures of this 2mm Finescale layout on a blog.  The real thing and the model.  Unfinished, but spectacular, modelling of the quayside lines through a shipyard.
