Hello;

Our next confirmed exhibition is the Weeley N Gauge (only?) show on 30/3/19.

We can run two main liveries; BR steam diesel changeover circa 1960 (Me) or 1980s Blue Grey/Intercity (Stuart, grid078), with an East Anglian bias.

I do have to say that a 10 coach 'Day Continental' or a 20-flat Freightliner with 2x37s looks good....

We have nearly finished reconstructing the down fiddle yard, having built a new up fiddle yard and then making the old up fiddle yard part of the 'new' reconfigured down yard. we still have a little wiring to go, then we hope to refresh the backscene as our next major project. Unfortunately, we only get to work on it about 5-6 hours a month.......but that could change after October!

I have to say that on this layout, and also James St, Stuart has a very good eye for photographic angles and cameo scenes.....


Martyn

An excellent layout which brings back memories of my time living in Norwich and travelling to and from Liverpool Street. I particularly like the ultra-rare North British Type 1 (Class 16, D8400-D8409).

Hi;

I think that in reality, Stratford didn't let the cl 16s get too far from home, as is well known, their reliability was very poor, so a visit to Saneham Tey (Marks Tey) would probably have been unlikely. They seem to have been confined to Stratford shed's cross London and local freight diagrams to the docks; I've never seen a photo of them in deepest East Anglia, but I'd be delighted to be proved wrong! Their cl 15 cousins were a bit more reliable, and did roam across East Anglia, sometime double headed, especially Ipswich-Whitemoor and the Coltishall sand trains. I've also got models of two of them....The double headed train coming in on the branch is meant to be the Leicester-Clacton summer only working, and I've applied Rule 1 as this was normally a single loco working (the coaching stock worked to Liverpool St and back from Clacton midweek, returning to Leicester the following Saturday).

Martyn

We'll put some more updates as we work on it, but due to various commitments, until mid October, progress will be slow. We are booked at Weeley N gauge show in 2019, and possibly Bishop's Stortford also (TBC).

Thanks, Martyn, for the info. about the Class 16. I did not know, either, about your twin Class 15s. Can you, please, post a picture or two of them? I remember seeing the ex-Class 15 Carriage Heating Unit at Colchester depot.

Hi again Chris;

I'll get Stuart to take some photos of the cl15s-he is much better than me, but I might have a try....Mine are (very) old Kingdom white metal kits on Poole cl 20 chassis. I think they may be the ones that BHE now sell (or did). There is also the resin Parkwood version, which is probably easier to make, but is of course a bit lighter-not a problem with the chassis weight for haulage. My cl 16 is Parkwood.

The cl 15s roamed quite a lot of East Anglia, as well as carriage pilots at Kings Cross (Finsbury Park shed?). Dr Ian Allen's book 'Diesels in East Anglia' has quite a few photos, including the aforementioned double headed workings; I remember them shunting the Harwich train ferry, and working parcels trains in the Colchester area. I may have been hauled by one on the Harwich branch..... ??? I also have-somewhere-slides of them laid up in Ipswich shed, prior to disposal. A friend who was a Colchester driver didn't like them as they were noisy and smelly in the cab, as well as their habit of either catching fire or seizing the main engine.

HTH

Thanks, again, Martyn. I'll look forward to those photos., in due course. I have long had Dr Ian Allen's book, "Diesels in East Anglia". It's one of my favourites and the only non-WR or SR book that I now have.

I have no plans for either a Class 15 or a Class 16 as the closest they got to BR SR was on the cross-London goods trains. They do make very attractive models though.
