Southwark Bridge
« on: September 05, 2017, 06:34:16 pm »
I've been working on a new project which currently has the working name of Southwark Bridge. Being an ex Bermondsey Boy I just had to do it sooner or later.

It will be Southern Region in the late 1960's - 1970's after the demise of steam. The inspiration being Cannon Street, Holborn Viaduct and, of course, Minories.






Don't be fooled by the old controller, this is going to be dcc although I've gone off the idea of sound. The intention will be to offer it for exhibitions but, as you can see, that is a way off yet.

Looks like a very good start, Graham.
What do you plan scenery-wise? A Thames bridge?
Looking forward to seeing this one develop.

All the best
Michael

It's going to be over arches just like the drag up to London Bridge. One smallish bridge over a road but no river crossing. This one is "Sarf o' the Thames".

Will really enjoy following this - it's my (old) neck of the woods, I'm a big, big fan of inner London 3rd rail layouts and alway have a soft spot for Minories influenced trackplans.  Good luck.  Another reason for Farish to produce a stable mate for the 4CEP.

One new photo for you. The overbridge masks the entrance to the fiddle yard.



It will go a little quiet for a while now as I get Southbridge (My GWR layout) ready for the Croydon show which takes place over the weekend of 7th/8th October.

It's been quite a while since I posted an update. I've mainly been busy sorting out the electrics - who said this dcc lark was easy? Anyway, I've been building a gasometer. The frame is completed and it's just been placed to see how it looks.

I'm guessing the gasometer is a modelux kit, but is it the "n" or "oo" version?

It is the Modelux kit, "N" gauge version. So far it's rather nice, but delicate to build.
