We pause our exploration of Manx trains for another ESNG meeting. It was an easy Wednesday, as we didn’t have to set up a layout – I realised on Sunday that with the summer holidays no one was using the hall between meetings. So we left the railway in place and running started immediately.
Allan had a couple of new diesels to pull his steel train.
Modern goods from Chris.
Older goods from me.
A little bit of America from Michael.
Some antiques from Mr Atfield (not including the club members.)
And the prototype pictures for the week. Tottenham Court Road in 1927. Lots of scenic detail here.
The Deptford Wharf branch. An interesting prototype, with Southern street running.
Another scenic idea for the 40’s and 50’s. Recovering an unexploded bomb (after defusing, I hope.)
And a modelling idea – just the vehicle to deal with that wagon that keeps derailing.
Back to the Isle of Mann next post…..
