By gad, that looks splendid. Pretty much as I envisaged when I had a gander at the sketch of the plans with the road layout et al :)

I beleive we've still a long way to go before the REAL one is rebuilt (in fact, I'm not even certain how far the demolition in Workington is progressing) so you should at least complete yours ahead of THEIR schedule ;)

Is that model on view at the GCR or is it a private model do you know? If yours is half as good- and I'm sure it will be much better than that- it will be terrific matey 8)

Cheers

it is on display at the GCR i wish it was mine cos it would inspire me to get more done with mine!! They have done all the stuff at the real shed it is in storage down here i think. Yeh maybe i will get mine done before them. i could show them what it may look like before they have done theirs!!!

hey just caught up with my own thread. i have been in to Derby (trainlines) and got my new locos i have been promising myself.

Oliver Cromwell Sir Lamiel and Brocklebank Line.

Erm back to the thread, there isn't a incline, on the picture you have pointed out. it is cos he boards are just loosely screwed together and proped up against a wall. You may want to see the other picture with the class 20's on. you will see the layout of the inclined is on the side of the track and the track is level all the way to the bridge.

Sorry if there is any confusion on this picture.

I think the model is actually a mock-up made especially for the Workington shed project

Yeah it is Ron. I had an idea in my head of what it might look like after seeing those plans and the model has simply enhanced what I had already hoped for. It promises to be an awesome instalation. It will be a veritable hive of activity I suspect. It should hopefully help them with their rebuilding projects with the extra room.

Unfortunately, the news on this and the 'Bridging The Gap' project site is sporadic at best. I keep trying to find out any info about the state of affairs and any progress. Trouble is that news is as rare as culture on Canvey Island (beleive me, that's very rare ;) )

I personally can't wait to see it under construction, let alone built :D

Cheers

Back on topic, is there a plan of the GCR? or at least the bit you are modelling?

yeh somewhere in this thread there is a a map of The GCR Loughborough station. I have got boards marked out up to Empress Road. At the min money is bit tight with me my partner and child being in education again.(well the partner and i are in education again!!!)

It is frustrating not hearing anything on the project i scan their websites daily. but they just say the same. i have asked on the forums but no-one answers the questions or if they do they just say"with all projects going off we cannot say at the min but rest assured there is the paper work going through." I think it is more clerical stuff and legal papers more than anything at the min. they have till 2009 -10 to make any progress on the site.

Will keep you all posted that are interrested.

Or you could visit the websites that are on here somewhere. I would type the websites out but i have a case of man flu. Lol!!!
