Excellent.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Chris,

The Blue/Grey Mark 2A's are just out of the box Bachmann/Farish one's. The only thing i've added to them is the 'Inter-City' logo's as that's how I remember them (or NSE branding in some cases)

My Mark 2D/F air con rakes are out of the box Farish (Blue/Grey) & InterCity livery one's are Electra Railway graphic overlays. I do however (When they eventually arrive in the shops) Have the new tooling Mark 2f's on order. I've been saving bit by bit, sold off a rake of Dapol Mark 3's & also my old farish one's will be sold to part fund the eye watering price of these new coaches :o. But once I've got them, I've got them!!

Thanks also to everyone for the great comments  :thankyousign: Trully humbled  :beers:

No pictures coming today as I'm off to Liverpool on the train for a few beers ha  ;)!

Cheers for now,
Mark

Hi everyone,

Well despite the really crap weather, I went to Birmingham monday, but detoured via the station that has inspired Shrewford & that is Shrewsbury!

The station is undergoing restoration of the canopies & the dana footbridge that spans the station.

I took some pictures, will be great to see this once it's been completed!


First up is the mighty Severn Bridge Signalbox


This was my train from Crewe seen departing, the 2 car Class 175 was absolutely heaving & was going all the way to Tenby


Looking back at the station showing a 4 car Class 170 at Platform 5, these are the current traction for the local services to the West Midlands (Operated by West Midlands Railway) & there are now 2 departures an hour plus the once an hour Transport for Wales services.


The south end of Platform 4 looking across to what was the south end of Platform 3, this end of the platform has been lifted, so Platform 3 is now much shortened. It is also the area where bay Platforms 1 & 2 stood.


Now looking north along Platform 4. The 1960's 'Butterfly' canopy like the one's on Platforms 4a, 5 6 & 7a that spanned the south end of Platform 3 was demolished around 1998. All the north end of the station canopy on the main island Platforms is under scaffolding


The view from Platform 4 looking at Platform 3


& looking north towards Chester & Crewe

Finally these next 3 pictures show an arrival with some 80's traction tagged to the back of a 170, a 153! (tho would have been a part of a 155 back in the day) This arrived at Platform 6 from New Street...also seen at Platform 7 is the 1528 Virgin Voyager to London which I left on  to Birmingham






Cheers for now,
Mark
