Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon one and all, Typical British weather, one day it freezes your xxxxx off, the next you are sweating pounds off! I just want something in between, and staying constant for a week or so! If I were a bit younger, I'd think about going and joining the folk in Oz? Daily rant over, back to t...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good afternoon to you all, It is funny how off the cuff comments can bring you trouble! At the end of Friday’s posting, I commented that the 8 freight trains along the High Wycombe branch required 8 locos to run them, and that this was unusual for a branch line. Thinking about this later, I realised...

Re: Heljan 00 Class 33 bits sought

Hi Alan, No problem, I know the situation:- The ease with which you find something is inversely proportional to how urgently you want it! So things you need to find are elusive, and things you don't need now are immediately found!! The current global situation is making all our lives difficult. - Mo...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Apologies All, I had just written but not posted, a post for today, when my Laptop decided to throw a wobbly and lock up! Think it is ok now, but having once lost all the content of my post, I am loath to risk the same again! So, I will put off this posting until tomorrow, when I will pick up the im...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon, One and All, As I am still sorting out the models for my consist of the morning Thomas and Green's Paper Mill pick up, I thought I would ease us from the past Parcels Train postings to the subject of Freight trains on the High Wycombe Branch by giving a quick run down of the freight ...

Sources of photos of Parcels Vans between Reading Maidenhead and Aylesbury in 1960/2

Hi All, To accurately portray some trains on my 00 model of the High Wycombe Branch and Relief Lines west of Maidenhead during 1960/2, I am seeking pictures of the parcels vans on the 0540 Reading to Princes Risborough parcels train, their onward moves to Aylesbury during the morning, and their retu...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Hi All, No modelling tales or Photos today, as I had a number of household/garden jobs to get through. So instead, this afternoon have been doing some research, trying to solve my own problem of not having any pics of the 2010 Maidenhead to Reading Parcels or the inbound 0540 Reading to Princes Risb...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon fellow RMWeb watchers, I had intended today to show you photos of and describe my stock for the 2010 Maidenhead to Reading Parcels, but I decided that I was not happy with the photos, probably because household things occupied more of the morning than I hyad anticipated, so I was hurr...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Hope you are all having a good Holiday Weekend? As a result of yesterday's VE anniversary, little modelling got done, the day being taken up with Zooming and Wats Apping between our family groups, plus neighbourhood happenings (all under social distancing)! Looks like Lockdown is more or less stayin...

Re: Lower Thames Yard

Good Afternoon All, Just three quick notes for today:- Firstly, a correction to my discussion two days ago about the 2010 Maidenhead to Reading Parcels. I said that van from this for Crewe was attached to the 2030 Greenford to (Birkenhead, omitted in original posting!) Parcels at Reading. This is co...
