Hi Dave Ammunition boxes from pk.rail on Ebay. Click on 'See all models'.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/pk.rail

and Northumbrian Painting Services of Hexham, Northumberland. I have never bought online from this Company. They are local to me and I visit them personally, (when possible).

https://www.paintinghistory.co.uk/

I am not affiliated to either company. Just a happy customer. IMO Northumbrian Painting Services ammunition boxes are better looking, but more expensive.

Thanks glencairn

A few bits and pieces added to my ebay shopping list. I'll need to buy a few more poen wagons now to put the extra loads in.
I use the same method as you for loads but stick a drawing pin underneath so I can pop them out with a magnet,

Dave

Clarence Dock has had a freshen up. Another 'downpour of rain. A bit of red. The post box has been changed to a Victorian style in keeping with the timeframe.

A new backscene at the end to give a more representation of the area.

Thank you Daniel for your kind words. I just try to create little scenes that I remember and have a model railway running through it. :)

My pleasure.
I am sure you know such moments: you visit a railway yard in your normal clothes and shoes, want to se that loco or wagon closer and suddenly you would love to be in your jeans with your workshoes because the black, greasy, ouly ground is smiling at you. Your scene made very strongly feel that once more!
I love that scene!

Soon I shall be able to be assisting my young operators. They have been missed for over a year.


Some scenes at Clarence Dock

Katie is on the passenger train. Harwood is shunting wagons.

View looking down the dock.

Along the dock side is old railway sleepers. Easily repaired if the grandchildren damage them. How come it is only me who has broken them?

The End of the Line. The puddles are still there.

I like your tarps, Glencairn. I have tried to imitate, but haven't hit on the right material. What do you use?

Look on TimberSurf's thread 'Lumsdonia' http://lumsdonia.co.uk/tarpaulin.html

More great ideas on there.

Here is a picture of a southbound troop train. On board is part of 19th (1st North Riding of Yorkshire) Regiment of Foot. The locomotive in charge is Calder Railway 'Bezel'

IMG_5341.JPG


The same train passing Crown Point Junction. Ash Farm Fields and the lake are beyond.

IMG_5342.JPG


The scene at Clarence Dock. The goods train hasn't arrived yet. A 'little scallywag' is being 'told off' by the policeman. Has he been stealing (again)?

Reading my trusty Bradshaw's timetable it says a North British Railway coach made the whole journey from Edinburgh to Plymouth; returning the following day. A Great Western Railway coach made the same journey on the opposite days. They would arrive at Leeds New Station (then Leeds Central) en route.

The purchase of a Hornby 6 wheeled (generic) coach was inevitable.
Why have one when I like two? :D

And here they are on their first trial run.

A rake of four six-wheeled coaches on their way to Leeds Central. Two North British Railway, one LNWR and one Lancashire Yorkshire Railway clerestory.

IMG_5369.JPG


Kirkstall & East Seacroft Railway has bought (second hand) a five compartment all 3rd carriage. They do not buy new.
The coach is actually from the European company Piko and has been Anglicised.
