Re: Shrewford, N gauge, BR Sectorisation 1986-88

Some great platform photos there; excellent detail. Those black and white photos look fantastic too. Nice layout. Hi Bob, Apologies for the late response, I haven’t been on the forum for quite a while. Glad you like the layout. It’s currently on its side with all the rolling stock in boxes as I hav...

Re: Shrewford, N gauge, BR Sectorisation 1986-88

Also I've gone a bit 're branding crazy here at Shrewford :P . I thought I may as well while I'd got the transfers & glues etc on the table. My Class 122 has received it's West Midlands 'WM' logo & is seeing on the holding sidings coupled to a 3 car Class 101 & is now stabled overnight. ...

Re: Shrewford, N gauge, BR Sectorisation 1986-88

I'd always wondered if there was a layout based on Shrewsbury. Here it is! That's a fantastic job; it really captures the place and I use it regularly. BTW if you go platform 3 as far as you can walk towards where platforms 1 & 2 were d look through the window there the station guys have a bit ...

Many thanks Alan, glad you like it :D . Hi Everyone, Well more modelling done today, though this time with a locomotive. 37426 is my favourite of the 37'4's as I saw it named at Aberystwyth when I was just 8 years old back in may 1986. It was to mark the introduction of the 'InterCity' Cambrian coas...

Re: Shrewford, N gauge, BR Sectorisation 1986-88

The platform views are great, some nice detail in the fixtures and fittings. The leading bubblecar with it front mounted exhausts, is a reminder of the one I took each morning for one stop down into Stratford. I bet yours doesn't have the sag in the middle, it obviously developed quite early in its...

Re: Shrewford, N gauge, BR Sectorisation 1986-88

Those platform-level shots are excellent and I had to look at that of the Class 33 several times to convince myself that it wasn't real. I like the backscenes and river in particular as well - it all blends together very nicely. Hi Mike, glad you like it , i've just had a glance at your layout from...
