Model Railway Exhibition 2009 Part 6

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

The Mid Essex Model Railway Club’s 32nd exhibition held at Shenfield High School, Brentwood Essex. 19th Sept 2009. 32. Willesden Junction in 9mm gauge by Pete Wilson. A model evocation of War Department Light Railways operated by British & Commonwealth Armed Forces during the Great War (1914 – 18). Situated 9km west of Ypres (Ieper) in Belgian Flanders the name is a prime example of a British soldier’s sense of humour. Willesden Junction (UK) was a large railway depot on the LMS in North London, & as such so was this location in Belgium hence the name. WW1 light railways were mainly 60cm gauge, built to service the needs of frontline troops by supplying ammunition, foodstuffs for men & horses, water, materials for fortifications & to transport injured men to the rear of the battlefield. The layout is a large triangular yard, with trains from the rear hauled by steam locomotives. These being replaced by less visible petrol tractors for onward movement in smaller two or three wagon consists. 33. Dagworth in OO gauge by Andi Dell. Dagworth is based on Great Eastern Main Line practice in 1985. Operation is based on Ipswich in the period with class 86 Electric hauled trains arriving from London & changing loco’s for class 47 diesels for the journey to Norwich. A wide variety of freight trains & cross country & local passenger services are also portrayed. The layout features overhead electrifications & computer controlled colour light signalling. The layout shows what you can

Spalding Model Railway Exhibition 2009 Part 2

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Here is the second part of the three part video from the event and this continues from part one with “Lumpton Park”, an N gauge British Model Railway that is based on modern era traction and I believe it based on the West Coast Main Line near Wirral. The layout uses a mixture of Passenger and Freight trains running along an embankment. The rolling stock used (in order of appearence) is a Graham Farish Class 47 in Virgin Trains livery hauling a rake of Intercity and Virgin Trains liveried MkII carriages with a Class 158 in Central Trains livery going in the other direction. Next is a Kato Class 373 Eurostar train that is heading east in this shot, then a Graham Farish (Bachmann) Class 170 in Central Trains livery is seen heading west with a GNER HST (on loan to Virgin Trains) is heading east (Note that the carriages should be MkIII’s and NOT Mark IV’s as shown here. Next a Class 60 that is 60078 in Mainline Blue with an EWS yellow beastie on the sides is also heading east with a rake of TEA 100 tonne tankers in various liveries is rumbling along the embankment and a Class 66 hauling empty HTA wagons is seen heading west. Then a EWS Class 90 with a ferry train is seen cruising east along the embankment with a Class 91 hauling a 225 train in GNER livery is heading west.

Model Railway Exhibition 2010 Pt 7

Monday, July 18th, 2011

The 33rd model railway exhibition by the Mid Essex Model Railway Club on the 18th Sept 2010 at Shenfield High School. Exhibiter 35 is “Flintcombe” by the East Dorset Gang of Four in P4 gauge. “Representing a fictional spur running south west from the S&DJR at Sturminster Newton, with its name derived from the Thomas Hardy novels about 19th Century Devon life – but as it could have been in the late 1930’s. The scenery is our attempt to portray the typical Dorset chalk terrain, with buildings based on S&DJR examples. Track is both C&L flexi & hand built, with signalling & auto uncoupling – modified 3mm Sprat & Winkle – from MSE components.” Exhibiter 36 is “Whitsend Tramway” by Graham Watling in 009 gauge. “This fictitious layout was inspired by the buildings & villages of the North Yorkshire coast. The cottages are mainly built using embossed plastic sheet & also modified kits. The scale is 009 – being 4mm to the Foot on 9mm narrow gauge track representing 2’3″ gauge tramway prototypes. Locos & stock are a mix of modified RTR items & kits. Main traffic consists of passengers to & from the inland town, with fish & light cargo from the harbour. Milk, coal & parcels are carried inwards.” Exhibiter 37 is “Cornard” by Sudbury MRC in 00 gauge. “Set in Great Central territory between 1960 & 1968 although it never actually existed. The layout is based on a cross country single track branch. The goods yard is still busy with commodities for the surrounding area incoming & local

Peterborough Model Railway Exhibition 2010 Part 3

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Here is part three of the Peterborough Model Railway Exhibition 2010 event that I attended to on the 16th of October 2010. The first layout is Mettesford, which is a early-1960’s type Model Railway Layout with mainly British Railways green Diesel Locomotives as well as some steam locomotive worked trains as well. This is an N gauge scale layout and the crew have done a great job on this layout. The locomotive models are made by Graham Farish (including Bachmann) and Dapol, the layout is traditional DC instead of the modern DCC system. The Diesel Locomotives filmed were a Class 31, Class 40, Class 45 and a Class 25 etc in the BR Green livery and the LMS “Twin” prototype diesel engine on MkI’s along with some steam traction like the Black 5, Jinty etc. The second layout at the show is Thornbury Hill. This layout is modelled in EM gauge and it based in British Railways set in the southern region in the late 1950’s to mid 1960’s. The rolling stock mainly comprises of “slam door” EMU (Electric Multiple Units) trains and steam hauled trains like the Ivatt and the Prairie which the area is modelled in South London. I thought the British Army military train on that layout looked very good especially with the Land Rovers, APC’s and the Tanks on the wagons and I think the wagons were KFA “Warflats” or something like that with a Class 73 shunting the train in reverse, and then is seen leaving the yard later on. The third layout in the video is Orwell St Johns and this layout is

Warley Model Railway Exhibition 2009 Part 3

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

This is the third and final part of the three part video from the Warley Model Railway Exhibition 2009 that was held on the 21st and the 22nd of November 2009. All footage seen in all three videos was filmed on the 21/11/2009. I apologise for the final clip cutting short at the end of the video as my memory card got filled to the brim with footage and photos from this event. The layouts shown in this final segment of the video are that of British Outline in OO Gauge and N Gauge. This video starts off with the “Blea Moor” British OO gauge layout set in the 1960’s as most of the steam locomotives are in BR Black or Green livery that are working alongside the (in this era) brand new Diesel Locomotives such as the Class 40 “Whistler”, Class 44 and Class 45 “Peak” Locomotives, Class 24 and Class 25 working on passenger, freight and mail trains and the Class 108 DMU as steam locomotives were sadly being phased out in this period which spelt the end to a legend. Next I film another British outline OO gauge layout which is a mixture of Diesel and Steam traction running to no fixed era as this layout is ran to a modellers licence (a bit like mine really). The stock used was the Hornby HST in Intercity Swallow livery which was the new HST released in 2008 and a steam locomotive (which was sleeping on the job!) was hauling some very sleek looking pullman carriages once the operator gave it a nudge to wake it up! Next up I film a rather nice looking British N-gauge layout that is

Model Railway Exhibition 2009 Part 4

Friday, July 1st, 2011

The Mid Essex Model Railway Club’s 32nd exhibition held at Shenfield High School, Brentwood Essex. 19th Sept 2009. 20. Silbeeke in Z gauge by Ann Sibley. After aquiring several Belgian locomotives & rolling stock she decided to go ahead & build the Z gauge layout you see today. Going to Belgium several times a year provided her with many pictures to give a clue to the look & feel. Brian & Ann are also members of Modespoorvirienden Bruge. The boards are secondhand – from a friend – with track by Marklin with many buildings from Kibri. 21. Wilelmshaussen in N gauge by Brian Sibley. After building Koln Westbahnhof Brian decided to start on this one which, with the exception of the backscene, was sourced from materials already to hand – total cost £4.50. Here is a small terminus, seeing a roughly hourly passenger service from Class 218 + Silver Linge coaches in traffic red livery. Class 212 locomotives handle freight services – these feed the brewery at the rear of the station, & the small sawmill to the front. 23. Shanklin South in OO gauge by Ian Allington. This represents a small fictitious station, located between Shanklin & Wroxhall on the Isle of Wight. The mainstay of power being ex London Underground 1938 tube cars & BR class 03’s. The era is 1967, to present day based on a terminus station with 2 sidings for engineer’s trains. Tube stock was was utilised at the end of steam in 1966/7, due to the restricted access through the Ryde tunnel. The first “Standard” cars
