Have managed to do the final (?) fiddly bits on the new station building, though I did make a mistake setting the position of the lamp - rather too high! Unfortunately I've superglued it in so I don't think it'll be coming out soon.



The direction signs are back in place, an extra notice board is on the inner wall of the extension, the chimney pot has arrived, there are a few streaks of muck on the roof and I've sat the building a bit deeper into the temporary base.

Steve Flint sent me some trackside advertising posters but I can't help but feel that they're a bit over-scale...

As it's Sunday here's a picture of part of Wrenton's church yard. No doubt the congregation were pleased to see a window of the Red Lion peeking through the Guildhall archway as they left church.

Congratulations Roger.
I just read your article in the Railway Modeller. No wonder they used your photos to compliment the layout description. They really do stand out when compared to the rest of the layout photos in the magazine. There is a marked difference that cannot be ignored. I notice they are going to show some of your superb modelling techniques in their April 2019 issue.
Well done again.

Hi Roger, I also managed to buy a copy of the magazine and really enjoyed the article on your railway. I also am looking forward to seeing your forthcoming article on your buildings, I will buy that mag too. Love the station building it looks superb.

Thanks Dennis and Chris. I have enjoyed seeing the pictures having only ever viewed them on the computer screen. I've mentioned before that I must get some printed, still haven't got around to doing it!

The upcoming article is based on the Cottage for Wrenton thread, link below, so it won't hold any surprises. I think the next NGS Journal has a piece about the point rodding.

Look what landed at Chez Bealman this morning!  :thumbsup:



Well done, Roger. It's great the way it says "Modelling, words and photography by Roger Beckworth."  :thumbsup:

Bit of a shame the free gift is the other scale. Still, I reckon it can be cut up and the bits put to other use in N.

Also sad to read in the same issue of the passing of Allan Downes. I still have most of his seventies articles, and he was a great inspiration to me back then. I still use many of his techniques.

Looking forward to your next articles in both RM and the NGSJ.  :thumbsup:

Thanks George, that does look familiar. Shame we never get N gauge freebies on the mags...

I think I missed out on the period when Allan was being published but for those who don't know his superb modelling Google will come up with some sites. I like a thread he started with the equally brilliant Iain Robinson "Anything You Can do, I Can Do Better !" on a certain other forum. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/70935-anything-you-can-do-i-can-do-better-robinson-and-downes/. It's a very long thread but well worth taking a look.

Hi Roger,
Just had a look at your referenced thread of Messers Downes and Robinson. Now I know where you got your inspiration from. WOW! Incredible modelling.

I only found Allan's work when most of Wrenton's buildings were done, but it's certainly inspiring! Almost makes me want to try one of those larger scales - or is that sacrilege around here?!
