Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

Postby glencairn » Tue Jan 07, 2020 8:55 pm

With the demolishing of Glenburnie Station and Diesel Engine Shed a new layout is planned.

The new plan is not to have a station.
A new engine shed where the old station was, so more diesels can be run in a session.
More scenery added at the old engine shed area.

Where is Crown Point? Answer -- Leeds.

Now both Diesels and Steam engines are in the same area. :D

More to follow.

Staff still clearing the old engine shed site.

Track laying at Crown Point is taking place (slowly). The pointwork works okay, but ordinary track needs replacing. I also need some track joiners. A trip to my local model shop shall have to be done.

I have managed to 'get five minutes' before the grandchildren arrive for the weekend. :D

Track laid and tested. Diesels arriving and leaving okay.

My local model shop, Pooley's Puffers (no affiliation apart from being a happy customer) is about four miles away. So quite handy. :lol:

A bit more done at Crown Point. All wired up and running.

Charlie Marston has 'moved to slightly larger premises. (At the entrance to the old engine shed.) He now has a railway line access to the network.

Still a lot to do. A new street to build and a school, plus ----. :)

Not often that you find an A4 in a scrapyard - the preservationists will be after that one :P

Thanks for your comments, Dave. Much appreciated.

It's not an A4, BrightonMan. It is a 4.6.0; one of only two to be streamlined. Number 2859 is preserved at Llangollen Railway. I guess this one must be number 2870. :) I shall have a couple of prospective buyers looking it over soon. :D

What a load of old scrap, in the best sense of the word. :D
It looks brilliant and definatly more than a head nod to our railway heritage. Something not often seen on a model layout.
Can I ask glencairn, is that one of the new Horby Rocket train pack releases in the first picture?
Thanks

Thanks for your comments End2end. A scrap yard is something I always wanted on my layouts.

The Rocket train pack was from Santa in 2018. :) Actually from a rather distant member of my family. It is a Hornby model, but a 'static model' from 'Locomotion', in County Durham. It came in a rather 'naff' plastic box. Therefore it is on display at the shed.

What I thought would take a couple of days changing things round has become a major (to me) rebuild of the layout.
Here are a few pictures.

Three views of Charlie Marston's yard.

The new entrance by rail.

Charlie Marston's house has also been moved. Agnes Marston is a bit so-so at the move. She has lost her garden.

IMG_3292.JPG



Where the scrap yard and actual engine shed was is now going to be a street. The buildings are temporarily placed down. As can be seen a lot of work still to be done.

Looking really great, the card building kits certainly are effective.
