Part 3 of the HMRS 2010 model show. www.snazzyscenics.co.uk Snazzy Scenics are Model railway scenic suppliers. Seen here are some of their modern image custom range of road vehicles. They do a range of different types of signs, posters, detail bits & stuff. Visit their website or email andrew@snazzyscenics.co.uk for more details of their products. As seen here, they’ve added extra details that you would see in working vans. Such as the hi-vis vest / jacket, map book, tax disk in the windscreen, newspaper / magazines, clip board, paperwork etc. One such van will appear on my layout, when it gets to the scenic part of the construction.

Hull model railway show 2010. Here we continue our look at some of the layouts on show. 1st up in this part 5, is N guage Loch Oran. This is based on elements of Crianlarich in the highlands of Scotland. Many buildings etc, if you’ve been to Crianlarich may be spotted. This is set in the period of 1998 to 2008. Next we take a look at Barton Ings. This is based on the narrow gauge industrial railways, on the south bank of the river Humber in the UK. Lots of details to spot on this one. The actual railway this is based on, could be seen from the world famous Humber Bridge (UK). The railway it’s self closed in 1999/2000, due to the sole railways loco failing. Last up on this part is Eastington Lane. Set in Englands north east, is a fictitous secondary route which has seen better days. Freight is provided to local factorys as well as the lie, having a token passenger service. Period is set around 1976 & the guage is EM. Part 6 to follow.
