Regarding the recent dock crane enquiry, we have not got a decent close up photo of one but i have managed to crop another photo down to suit, unfortunately there is rather a lot of background clutter.




Hope this helps to clarify some of the points raised.

Very well deserved. Whatever won 1st place must have been amazingly good, then.

Thanks for telling me this. Dent is a very attractive location.

Many thanks for your thoughts and congratulations, gentlemen.

This is the second time that Steve, the builder and owner, has won Warley with one of his layouts, and then come second overall in the 'Modeller'. He did this with 'Lynford junction' about 1998.

There have been a number of flippant and light-hearted jokey emails between the operators of 'James St' to see how Steve could improve the layout in order to have won the 'Modeller' award. Some might even happen.....

Thanks for the appreciation, Cudders!

A bit far for you, but we are at Ilford 27/28 April, but closer to you at the Great Central/Quorn in June, and TINGS, with three more exhibitions in the Autumn, and I think we are already up to six or so next year, and already three (I think) for 2021 so far.

Steve has been adding and updating buildings, Dave/Southerngooner and myself have been building yet more stock, and I've been doing more for a future extension to the harbour, and Dave has also made a start on the loads of signals required.

We are also likely to feature in some magazine articles in the next couple of months as well, starting with  'Modeller'.

For those of you who follow the layout, there are some photos in the June Railway Modeller, taken by Steve Flint at Bristol last year.

Our next exhibition is the Great Central event on June 14/15/16.

All accolades fully deserved.  :beers:
