Potpourri #1013

Usual selection of links and photos follow….

Three Bridges in the late 1950’s – judging by the newish Mk II Hillman Minx pulling out of the station yard.  And a Maunsell EMU – perhaps a 4COR or 6PAN in the background.  Doesn’t it all look tidy?

Southampton SR goods station.  An interesting design that would make a good model?

An ex-GWR TPO van on the Southern Region in the 1950’s.  TPO vehicles could be long lived and well travelled.

And how to advertise – Australian style.  However,  the trams are still running, but Holden have, or are about to, give up the ghost.  Another potential model!

And some links….

This is amazingly good for Z gauge….

Brian sent me this interesting link….

Some excellent drawings and great information on this site:

SR SPECIFICATIONS (stationcolours.com)

Good to see investment in rail….

East West and Northumberland rail lines get £794m boost

And finally, you couldn’t have done this with the old style moquette seats – far too scratchy!

Depop seller’s crop top made from Chiltern Railways train seat cover ‘violates terms’ – BBC News

Till next time….  Stay safe!
