Terrific photography of a most interesting assemblage. Rather liked that one rusted out locomotive on point, really has character. Also like the way in which sidings wend into the urban landscape, very dramatic views. A small arms manufactory, first I've seen.

Thanks Chops. The layout not only has to interest me, but my family also; especially the grandchildren. :D They bring things to add to the layout. For instance, My wife, Lady G, bought me a W A Glendinning of Shotley Bridge, Consett, wagon. My grandsons' brought another two. They get placed around the layout one time. Then placed somewhere else another time. :)

As for the small arms factory? As part of my family are from the farming community I see guns on a regular basis. (All legal.) I also have been interested in munitions manufacture. Therefore, by combining the two, T & J Harrison, Small Arms Manufacturer is born. I have a soft spot for 0-6-0 'Terrier' locomotives and have two K&ESR locomotives. To fit in with the area modelled, there was (not sure if it is still there) Kirkstall Forge Engineering Company. in Leeds. They made, amongst other things, axles for military vehicles. The K&ESR locomotives now run on the ficticious railway line, Kirkstall & East Seacroft Railway taking munitions to the Munitions Factory at Barnbow. On the layout, Kirkstall is 'over the bridge' (fiddle yard).

Thanks Montfort. As bits keep being added, to me, there has to be a story. The thing is those stories are in different time frames. :lol: Eventually the layout will be a number of different scenes all linked into one. Not forgetting that I run two railways on the same layout. :lol:

Some more work done at the new junction. This aerial view shows the new signal box for Sovereign Street. It also shows the new shops at the other side of the level crossing.

The signal box and the new shops behind. Ladle's Grocer's used to be in Dib Lane, Leeds and Yager's Butchers are still in Consett, County Durham.

As can be seen, more work to be done.

It continues to delight and inspire. Love those tight shots of rail working its way about existing structures and of the DMU nosing its way through the rail side brush. Fabulous stuff. Every layout I see in here is different in so many ways the one before.

A busy time at Albert Vinnerd's Garage. Customers are ordering food at Anne's Cafe. A train of container wagons pass Wyndham Farm.

Do tell, as it has been a mighty long time since I traveled in the UK. What does one order at Anne's Cafe? One of my favorite programs was Chef Ramsey inspecting British eateries and rushing to the alley to, uh, regurgitate. Hope it's better than that! My children gave me a copy of Ramsey's "Fast Food," and it was a brilliant hit. People in these parts still beg me to make up a dish of Ramsey Fajitas for parties. What would be typical meal at a place such as Anne's cafe?

Happy memories of cruising the myriad of British canals on the "Grey Boy" on holiday in the UK back in '67. Tea shops along the way, I seem to recall.

Food from Anne's Cafe is any combination of eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms and black pudding in a (large) bread bun. A splash of ketchup, or brown sauce, or mustard. Prices from £1.80. A mug of tea - 50p.

The real Anne would have forty fits if she knew she had a cafe named after her. :lol: She is a delightful lady who lives in Darlington. Her cooking skills are exemplary, so much so we are looking forward to having Christmas Dinner at her house (again). As for her cakes? Join the queue. :lol:

If you are still interested in canals, here is a link to a Forum that may interest you boatsandcanals.fgo.org.uk

BTW, Glencairn, hope you don't mind, but I named a cricket team after you in "Nessie on the Rampage." I was casting about for a name, and yours came to mind immediately. What in the world is "black pudding?" I have remember "bangers and mash," and "toad-in-the-hole" (my sister refused to eat them thinking they were toads), but not familiar with black pudding.

Also, here in Texas if one orders "tea," one will get a large glass full of ice and chilled tea. In order to obtain proper tea, one must specify "hot," and not infrequently, several times in a row. Also, a "napkin" will get you something to put in your lap, not the other thing.
