Nice story Geoff, but why has Guy been returned to you?

The cryptic contents of this thread are doing my noodle in!

Hi TimberSurf,

Came back to me as I couldn't do a photo session when ready so went to N.I first.
Now done the carnehan N.I run and ready for RailwayRobbie, but he's away for a
few days so I'll be posting out in about a week.
This gives me time to reinforce the original Dapol wagon box that posties seem to
have squashed rather. I'm reinforcing by adding a plasticard liner. The originl box
seemed the logical best carriage pod for protection, but needed beefing up !!

House currently in chaos as new central heating system going in.

Arrived back from a rather wet North Wales today (Friday).
Eagerly waiting for the arrival of "Guy" here at Petersdale.

would love it if Guy could pop up to Scotland on his meandering Journey, Iv'e only got bare boards at the moment, 5' of track and a bit of hand painted back scene but he would be most welcome to drop in and be the first wagon to be pulled on that bit of track ! If I'm a ways down the list it might give me time and encouragement to add a few feet more :lol:
Cheers

Put me down to be #15 please Geoff, I have convinced myself that I have sufficient time to make a presentable scene.

On the list - for anyone who's not sure where they are look at Dave's posting
almost at the bottom of page 1.

Getting itchy wanting to see what RailwayRobbo comes up with, hopefully
in the next week.

'GUY' arrives at PETERSDALE.

IMG_2841.JPG
Ivatt 2-6-0 46440 waits with the pick up goods for NCB J94 No.4 to take a rake of empties back to the colliery.


IMG_2848.JPG
46440 heads over the Canal Bridge towards PETERSDALE.


IMG_2854.JPG
46440 brings it's train into PETERSDALE Station. A midweek 'Rambler's Special' DMU is stabled in the bay platform and the yard shunter 'Jinty' 47354 awaits it's next duty.


IMG_2867.JPG
47354 collects 'GUY' and another van from the pick up goods. The DMU still awaits the ramblers return.

'GUY' delivers the goods and leaves PETERSDALE.

IMG_2881.JPG
47354 Very slowly and very gently shunts 'GUY' into the Goods Shed for unloading.


IMG_2885.JPG
46440 arrives to collect the weekly pick up goods from PETERSDALE yard. 47354 waits in the bay platform with a short train of wagons for unloading.


IMG_2890.JPG
46440 collects it's train and takes on water before running back down the branch to the main line junction.


IMG_2896.JPG
46440 awaits departure from PETERSDALE Station.


IMG_2899.JPG
46440 crosses the Canal Bridge en route to the main line junction where 'GUY' will continue his journey north.


The station staff at PETERSDALE can now breath more easily as the little van with the explosive load disappears from view.

GOODBYE GUY.
Safe onward journey north.

What a great set of photographs there RailwayRobbo.
No mention of the profanity regarding the secrets of W6162.
I do not condone the use of bad language, only use in extreme
situations.
