Potpourri #1059

My covid seems to have degenerated to just a heavy cold, so I’m optimistic!  And I’m well enough to get some modelling done.  But today’s blog will be a simple selection of photos requiring little effort from my poor old brain.

Fareham in the 1960’s.  A very modellable scene in every way, and lots of details from a bygone age.


Talking of bygone ages, Baker Street tube station hasn’t changed that much!

I wish the same could be said for Bembridge, on the Isle of Wight.


We lost such an iconic location….


Another iconic location – not entirely lost, as the viaduct is now a cycleway.  Midford viaduct on the Somerset & Dorset.  I love the view down the lane that Peter Leigh has captured.  I don’t think that I have seen a photo from here before.


Two pictures of the Newhaven West Quay line.  A funny little branch on the opposite side of the river from the main terminus.  Street running with a Terrier – can’t be bad!


Another Terrier for good measure, in a very modellable location.  Sorry, I’ve lost the photo credit for this one, but hope that it’s OK to reproduce it here.


And finally, back to 1930’s America and a Lehigh Valley poster.  Great artwork of a lovely train.
