Knowing some on here like parcels stock. The first parcels train of the day maybe carrying "Luggage in Advance".

Hi Alan,

Apologies for not reading further into your thread earlier - and therefore understanding the development from Wencombe to Kingsbridge Regis.

Thank you for tantalising me with more parcels stock images. I can live with the LMS 2-axle CCT and the LMS 42ft CCT (both survived into BR blue and the late 1970s) but I can only envy the outside framed Siphon G.

Cheers,

Richard

Lately I have been repainting my maroon Warship into the unique D845 Sprightly, the one which had for 2 years the very small yellow panel and the white stripe on the cab roof.

Tomorrow a coat with Klear to give a good surface for the decals which arrived this morning.

It has been pointed out to me that the white stripe across the cab should almost end in points so I have rectified this. I'm also thinking of doing some work on the roof to make it look more like a Class 43. There are still things to tidy up before weathering.

I've been back dating my Silver Fox D600 Warship, D602 Bulldog, when I bought it (second hand) it had headcode boxes (too late for my 1960-64 period, so they were cut off and I've been adding light brackets and the hand rails which seem to have been added in late 1959.

I'm looking for a Bachmann class 37 chassis to replace the Lima one it has. So far searching the internet has not been successful.

I thought I take a couple of snaps of a new addition to the goods yard......... a loading bank, bought from Ten Commandments whilst at the Manchester show. [I'd always felt that siding was too long as it did not allow vehicles to get to the crane further down the yard, and I've always disliked layouts where it seems impossible for traffic to get to where it is meant to be]. So I shortened enough to get the loading bank in and to be able to get vehicles out from the sidings. I still need to repair where the track was beyond the ramp.

After a few days away from the layout (new year lethargy) I decided I'd get into the room and do some finishing off jobs, very slight weathering of the Steps houses and add aerials and also bed in the loading ramp and a couple of other buildings.

Kingsbridge Regis the end of the Wencombe line.

Postby westerner » Thu Jan 26, 2017 10:26 pm

After a year of putting it off I've at last got round to "doing" the water in the harbour. I've decided to it in the way demonstrated by Craig Tiley in the April 2014 issue of Railway Modeller. It involves drawing around the boats and tacking strips of styrene around the line creating a barrier for the textured water to butt up against, thus hopefully, when the boats are replaced, they will look as if they are sitting in the water rather than being on top of it. To get a clear line I had to repaint the harbour with a lightish colour so that I could see the line. After that was done the strips of styrene were tacked with plastic solvent into place.

a second coat was the painted and as you can see it is a green colour.

harbour paint f2.jpg


Tomorrow (Friday ) I hope to paint the harbour with a flat coat the intended colour, before adding the texture material and repainting in the same colour as the previous coat and stippling it to add the texture. The strips will then be lifted and the cavity for the boats will be painted black ( the colour of the lower hulls). The water surface will then be given several coats of Klear.

The eagle eyed amongst will notice that the row of cottages on the left now has a pavement and the boat that will be in the harbour next to them now has masts and simple rigging.

Kingsbridge Regis at the end of the Wencombe line

Postby westerner » Mon Jan 30, 2017 2:55 pm

Work has continued on the harbour there was a bit of a false start when the original thickening agent had solidified and would not dissolve in the paint as you will see so that needed a bit of a rub down and a new tub was bought and the harbour was repainted when dry it was followed with 4 coats of clear (perhaps varnish may have been better. The styrene strips were then lifted and the boat holes painted black. Just waiting for all that to dry and hopefully the boats will fill the holes and then work can start on finishing the boats and adding all the mooring lines.

The 3 small buoys on the right side of the harbour are to hold the sterns of the 3 small boats that will be moored there bows into the harbour wall

Back to the boats and another one now securely moored. This time Hero an old fishing boat now used as a houseboat by a local artist.

You may also noticed that Bachmann boat in the background has now had its registration changed and is now a Dartmouth boat, called Blue Mist. I need to some more work on her before mooring her securely.

I've come to the conclusion that it is not worth posting on here any more as nobody seems to use the site except Rob Pulman and I can catch up on his posts elsewhere. Kingsbridge will be no more anyway in a few weeks and I will not be posting my new layout on here for the afore mentioned reasons. A shame but Goodbye.

Hi Alan,

I have to be honest and say that I have sadly reached the same conclusion recently.
