Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

Love the Consett Iron Ore wagons. Do you have the unloading bridge? Hi GeraldH. The Consett Iron Co wagons do not fit in with the area I am modelling.

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

I'd be a bit suspicious of that GPO Commer van . Never been in a Commer van, Bufferstop. A good story though. Drove a few units around the yard though, before I became a Transport Manager. :) The beauty of not having a terminus station like before, a train can be a lot longer. An oil train heading ...

Re: A 1944 themed layout

Just how one sees things in real life. :) See what you see and not what you think you see. Then try and replicate it in a scene.
