Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Lananta- finished!

I have now basically finished the scene. Here are a few pictures;

‘Mary’ is tied up alongside the quay with Broad and Standard Gauge wagons waiting to be unloaded…..

A Broad Gauge passenger train pulled by Bristol & Exeter Railway ‘Pearson’ 4-2-4T drifts into Lananta. A local fisherman attends to his boat while friends look on though the small child is more interested in the train….

The small station at Lananta which is based on the station building from Symonds Yat on the Wye valley line….

Standard Gauge LSWR Metropolitan(Plymouth) Tank shunts the Quay sidings…..

Details of the busy activity at the stone built end of the quay……

GWR 517 class 0-4-2T with a standard gauge local passenger train enters the scene over a wooden trestle bridge spanning a brook feeding into the estuary at low tide. There is still a disc and crossbar signal which has not yet been replaced by the more up to date semaphore type…….

Here a Broad Gauge passenger train is leaving the scene. The disused lime kilns and the remains of a rotting hulk can be clearly seen….

‘That’s all for now folks!’

    Love the boat on the beach, is that a Quaycraft product ?

    • Hi, thanks for the commment. Yes, the boat on the beach as well as t;he dinghy for the ship and the boat on the sand in the estuary are from the Quaycraft 1:128 ships boats series.

      • Robin Sweet on said:

        Are these boats suitable for a 1/76 scale layout or would you use another scale.

      • I worked out how long a boat I needed and the measurement in mms I needed for my scale and then looked for one that fitted. I think you may need to use 1:96 but it is a bit of trial and error. Have a look at corwallmodelboats.co.uk
