An overall view of Sovereign Street, with North Road and Glenburnie Station to the rear.

Yesterday, a friend gave me the T W Gascoigne Traction Engine. Having two traction engines does that make a collection? :lol:

Those traction engines are Awesome! Im really rather envious Glencairn. Looking nicely at home there might I add. Good to see you keeping up the war effort.

Thanks for your comments, Josh. Much appreciated.

Another picture of the traction engine. Walter Gascoigne has finally got rid of his straw coloured hair.

Busy, busy, busy.
Funny things you notice ..... I see your traction engines are on embossed
(Brick) paper hard standing. I have a sheet or two of that obtained years ago
on Ebay. I didn't make enough use of it, or think of using as cobbles.

The Company I bought the paper from (a little while back) are based in Cyprus. They were selling it as ‘cobbled’. I have used it on various parts of the layout. My son has also ‘pinched’ a few sheets to use on his layout.

I have not thought of using it as brick paper. There’s a thought.

Hi glencairn,

As it was quite a tough paper I used it to clad the plywood wall that encloses the DCC controller on HS 2.
Think I used wallpaper paste, but had to do a couple of re-sticking jobs over the last couple of years.

Always good to see some of these less frequently used scenic materials in various locations.
All about sharing Ideas !!

Those tractors are brilliant. Really sets the 1914 theme. One small part of
a brilliant layout.
I don't care what they say. I believe in Nessie.

I am impatient. As much as the Hattons four wheelers are looking good. Waiting a couple of years maybe for them would drive me crazy.
Having a small surplus of Hornby four wheelers, I thought of repainting a couple or three.

Here are my efforts. Not 100% but they are better than not running at all. Now they are 'through coaches from other areas'.

The two coaches next to the engine have (imo ) the GWR ness removed and are now in Leeds Scarcroft & Wetherby Railway Livery.

IMG_2951.JPG


Here is 'Clarabel' from the Thomas the Tank range repainted, It could do with another coat of paint. Don't worry friends of Thomas; I have another set of Annie and Clarabel coaches. :lol:
IMG_2954.JPG


and here is a representation of a LNWR coach.

Now all my four wheelers are fully utilised. :D
