Info sought on the Oxford to Princes Risborough Line

For an upcoming 00 gauge model, I am looking for information on the Oxford to Princes Risborough line, in particular Thame, in the period 1958-63. I have the R A Cooke section 27 plans, the Middleton Press book and the Richard Lingard Book, plus all the GWJs. So what I am after is the more obscure m...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Morning All, Firstly, an apology for not posting anything for nearly a month, but what I am writing below, will, I hope explain this? Unfortunately, the guys down to build the layout have concluded that they cannot see when in the future they can start again building complex layouts such as min...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Hi Folks, This afternoon I am going to continue my look at locos that might share decoder types by looking at Southwest Digitals analysis of SR loco decoders into which I am adding my own thoughts. I will make clear which are my own inputs! Southwest Digital's analysis of SR loco decoders is not as ...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good afternoon fellow modelers, Its nice to see the sun shining (at least it is in South Bedfordshire!) after several wet and miserable days! I have been amusing myself inside the house with a few locos, wagons, and a small amount of track assembled as a shunting layout on the dining room table. For...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good day All, Over the last year I have been investigating the wider use of Hornby TTS Decoders in locos other than the locos they are named for. In the last few weeks, I have been doing more on this due to the introduction of the Hall TTS decoder. Last week, I found some useful information on South...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Hi All, Have had a week off from modelling as there was a number of jobs around the house needing doing and we had thoughts of a few days away, hence no postings. The jobs got done (just!) but the high temperatures put pay to thoughts of getting away particularly seeing the coast getting increasingl...

The Class 66 is for the 2016 version of Lower Thames Yard. Meanwhile, I am still solving running problem on the track of Lower Thames Goods Sh...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, I haven't posted anything for a few days because the arrival of my sound fitted green Bachmann 121 prompted me to get on with making one circuit round Lower Thames Goods Shed useable as I had nowhere to test run it! So now I have got the Wycombe branch through Branch platform cir...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, I hope you are being good and wearing your masks in shops and the other listed places? I just hope that the measures do reduce the spread of the virus and give everyone more confidence to visit shops. I have my doubts but hope to be proven wrong! Meanwhile, my modelling has not p...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good afternoon everyone, A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Goods Shed for my "Lower Thames Goods Shed" and its larger development "Lower Thames Yard" layouts. One problem for the Yard layout is that I have little information about the 1947 built extension to the Goods Shed...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, I have been updating my plans for the scenic boards on Lower Thames Yard. Firstly, in Board 4, below, I have redrawn the Goods Shed to better show the Original brick portion and the later block built extension. I would be grateful for any photos of the extension as currently I on...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon Everyone, I have updated Lower Thames Yard in line with my comments in my last post, so I have revised the approach road and added the weighbridge office and yard front wall/gate, but I am playing around with the position of Grenfell road along the front of board 5:- I have tried a br...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, Here is a couple of Lower Thames Yard sketches that explain how I intend to model Maidenhead Station Approach and Grenfell Road. Remember the railway only portrays the Relief Lines and the Wycombe Branch. The two tracks to the outside of the lines (bottom of the plans are the dow...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Hello there, Today I have got back to modeling by making a start on the Goods Shed for my Lower Thames Goods Shed layout. This will be built so that it can easily be extended for the Goods Shed on Lower Thames Yard, although the easiest way to do the extension might be to keep the brick built shed t...
