Nicks workshop mutterings

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

Tinworthy-was Tavistowe- update

Yes, a change of name. Comments by my wife has led to a name change as she didn’t think Tavistowe was appropriate and suggested an alternative!!

Tin because Tavistock is a Stannary town and ‘Worthy’ because it is a typical Devon place name. So the layout will now be known as Tinworthy.

I have now finished laying all the track and wiring it all up. I can now have UP and Down trains.

Here we can see the extent of the station with an auto train at the Down platform.

I have temporarily laid in the platform bases and marked out where the goods shed will sit incorporating a point servo.

The first train is an auto train which consists of an auto coach of 1927 and a 64xx Pannier tank. Both recently constructed from etched brass kits.

64xx pannier tank no. 6414. This loco spent all it’s life based at Laira shed in Plymouth

Next jobs are to paint the track, add cosmetic chairs to the point work and add ballast……..

    Coming on nicely Nick. I like the new name. Looking forward to seeing it in action ‘after the war’.
