Just before I went on holiday I ordered some 'Victorian figures from Northumbrian Painting Services of Hexham, Northumberland. (No affiliation, just local to me.) On return the figures have arrived.

A little scene outside Roseville Station.
Are they going on a journey? Where to?
Maybe they have just returned

The car is a present from my younger granddaughter.

Three scenes at Clarence Dock area

Clarence Dock Goods Yard. The building on the right was originally a 'wooden' one that I made for a diorama of 'Lybster' Station (Near Wick, Caithness, Scotland). It has now been made into a 'brick' building. The little platform is also from 'Lybster'. The real platform at Clarence Dock was a temporary affair and lasted less than a year. Modellers licence keeps it open.

he coal barge is arriving at Clarence Dock. The Glencairn wagon is a long way from 'home'. Glencairn is near Lybster. :)

The signal box controls the entrance to Clarence Dock and goods yard. The line to the front is part of the circuit and goes to Leeds Sovereign Street and beyond.

Leeds, Scarcroft & Wetherby Railway locomotive 'East Keswick' approaching Roseville Station with a southbound train of pit props. The pit props will finish up 'somewhere in France'.

The same train now at Leeds Sovereign Street Station.

The train arrived at Leeds LNWR Goods Yard. Has been marshalled and is now heading south with a Calder Railway locomotive in charge.

The train of pit props etc. continues its journey south.

Another train heading south. This time a troop train with soldiers of the Northumberland Fusiliers. A mix of different Company carriages make up the train.

North British Railway carriages are at the front. Even some Kirkstall & East Seacroft Railway coaches are making the long journey south.

Checking in.
Always fantastic to see the fun you have with your railway. It always grows and changes simply for enjoyment.

What's the small rail crane you have at the dockside?

Cheers,
Josh

Thank you for your comments, Josh. It is a fun layout, though with a serious theme. My grandchildren like it as it is simple to operate.

The crane is an old Hornby one I was given in a 'job lot' from a family member. I added bits to it to give the impression of a steam operated crane of around the turn of the century. Then dirtied it up somewhat.

I had to look up to see where Lybster was. I imagine if you can't get there by train you could fly with Air Wick?

The younger granddaughter decided to run steam trains, which is unusual for her.

A northbound oil train passes a passenger train in Leeds Sovereign Street Station.

And passes Roseville Station.

After some damage caused by the water feature in the train room (see my diesel train thread) steam trains are back up and running.

Some card buildings will have to go and new built, but that is a small price to pay for what I expected. Clarence Dock is back in operation. :D

Good to see Clarence dock keeping busy! Sorry to hear about the water damage.

I hope a speedy repair for your buildings.

Thank you, Dave & Josh for your comments.

The grandchildren were 'gutted' when they saw what had happened.
Now that trains are running they are allowed back when they visit. :D

The Hudson Ward box van has been unloaded at Hudson Ward Flour Millers. 'Tiger' the Companies resident 'ratter' takes some time out relaxing on the stairs.
