Perhaps he's got wings now and is flying over Wrenton with his camera.

Fantastic; just like the real thing. All that is missing is some Photoshopped smoke and steam. (Not much visible on a warm summer's day.) 8-)

Another great photo. I'm delighted to see a beautiful ex-works BR Lined Green BR Standard 5MT 4-6-0. (Far too nice to weather.)

Another nice pic Roger, the only thing that lets it down is who is driving it, ie where is the crew. But a superb pic all the same, I must admit I am only just geting round to adding crew.

I've been thinking about adding loco crews where possible so I'll be interested to see what you're using. The Modelu ones seem pretty good though I've only seen photos of painted ones in 00, not the N ones. Another detail that could be added is lamps. I think I'd only fix them in place with Tacky Wax, just for photos.

My pleasure, Roger. I agree with you about the loco. crew and lamps. The ModelU ones are very good but others are just as good at normal viewing distance. I need to add crew to my steam loco. (I have painted ones ready to add.)

Anyone know where there's a comprehensive list of steam locos drive sides? I'd hate to put the driver on the wrong side :dunce:

hi maybe prepared to be stand corrected
.....

Locos of GWR origin like these were right-hand drive. The Driver is on the right hand side of the cab, looking forwards.



there was an argument that The other "Big 4" railways adopted left hand drive for absolutely no logical reason what so ever. Far from being 'No logical reason whatsoever', most railways chose the left hand position for drivers, because the signals were almost always placed on the left, as were most passenger platforms. Much easier for drivers to see what's going on.


somebody told me on a preserved railway 



An easy way to tell for any loco  :

Look for which side of the model the ejector pipe, if it's vacuum fitted (that long one alongside the boiler handrail from cab front to smokebox side), or the reversing lever are on;

Both indicate the Driver's side of the loco

Particularly useful on classes where the position varied on different batches or changed over time.

but thanks for the posting could be interesting ..... keep the good work up roger

That's interesting information @crewearpley40 , I have put crew in my Union Mills 3f,which I detailed adding a reverse lever, hope I put them the right way round I could end up with egg on my face. The crew I have used so far is from the little sets that Graham Farish do, a touch expensive but they are already painted and they do different sets with the crews in varying positions. I have put crew in 3 steam locos and my Deltic, if they are in the correct positions is anybody's guess.

with diesels driver sits left,steam locos think of the firing that the fireman needs to do compared to the position of the firebox  and the driver, interesting thoughts there,dirty blue / black overalls too covered in sweat,coal,oil

Remember, the fireman would not be shovelling the whole time.  I seem to remember seeing a lot of locos with the driver on one side and the firement on the other.  Sometimes the fireman was required to lookout for signals when it was difficult to see the signal from the driver's side, as in the case of the Lewisham disaster.  So it is probably OK to put a crew member on each side of the cab.
With kind regards
