What a 'nice' grotty dock area.
My boots will be filthy with ash, oil and lord knows what else.
At least no dog crap, they wouldn't dare venture there.

Thanks for your comments, Geoff.

There may not be any dogs, but a lady from the Salvation Army is there. :) (Memories of my Grandmother and Great Aunt, who were members.)

A lady in Salvation Army uniform. Purchased from Hardy's Hobbies. (No affiliation. Just a happy customer.) I had to wait a little while due to Covid19 for delivery.

The crews of the Calder Railway have taken a dislike to certain locomotives in the fleet.

A slight alteration to the locomotives have been made.

The locomotive at the top is as was.
The bottom locomotive in the new look.

A coal bunker has been attached. Waiting for everything to dry and coal will be added.

A couple of pictures of the puddles 'left by the rain'. A couple of figures and other items added.

Work on the dock is more or less finished. A little test running.

The old coal wagons based in Scotland (Previous layout) come out of retirement. :)

Amongst a 'job lot' was these three items. All very good runners.

The first one was the helicopter wagon. I shall find something else to put on.

Then the Rocket Launcher. The rockets do not fire, but I am not bothered

Nor am I bothered about the searchlight not working

Nice enough! :) Just two GaugeMaster Combi controllers. Nothing complicated. The Grandchildren (4.4.5.6. and 7 years of age) can handle them easily.

An abundance of humanity brings this remarkable layout to life. I must imitate your rain puddles- that is so neat.
Nessie rocks!

Thanks for your comments Lachute and Chops. They are much appreciated.

The first set of puddles were 'not successful as I would like'. The second time I had a go I followed P D Hancock's idea that he did on his Craig & Mertonford Railway layout.

Give it a go, Chops. They are quite simple to make really. A little different.

Trains have not been run for a short while for one reason or another. Now back up and running. The scenery has been 'tweaked' a little here and there.

Whilst Calder Railway locomotive 'Vivienne' and passenger train wait at the signal at the junction, a Leeds Scarcroft & Wetherby locomotive (in her new Midnight Blue livery) and goods train has right of way.

Calder Railway locomotive 'Harwood' with a goods train for Leeds LNWR Yard waits as a Kirkstall & East Seacroft empty cattle train passes at Sovereign Street Station.

The K&ESR locomotive is a repainted 'Percy' from the Thomas the Tank range. Nameplates have been ordered for it.

I have started to build a small goods yard at Clarence Dock/Gillingham Quay to increase the variety of wagons etc. and have more trains running.

Small loading/unloading docks big enough for one or two wagons.

IMG_4479.JPG


In the way things are sorting trucks to the correct dock, it is a form of Inglenook Sidings. :)

I now have four layouts on one trackplan. More variety on running trains depending how I feel. There is the 1914/1919 theme. Trains to Clarence Dock. Trains to Gillingham Quay (using my Medway Queen wagons). Finally Diesel train running. Choices. Choices. :D
