I tend to throw anything into a parcels rake, as witnessed in this Southampton to Oxford working slowing for a signal.....

A very good mix of types, Nobby, and quite realistic apart from the SR parcels stock still in Southern Railways livery as opposed to BR SR Green.

Thanks, Chris. I tend to believe all manner and age of vehicles were pressed into parcels service, hence the weathered LMS 50ft full brake at the front of the train too.

Not sure if CCTs and the Mk1 full brake bringing up the rear would be a feasible formation in real life?
You need a BG in there somewhere so that the guard has somewhere to ride. I'm not sure what accommodation the horse box provides, but neither of the CCTs would have guard's accommodation. As they all have continuous vacuum brakes, the order is not especially important.

Isn't that the full brake bringing up the rear? - only the roof is visible in the photo as I wanted to show the CCTs and Horse Box.

The SR also had PMVs and Bogie B's in which the guard could ride (both available in N Gauge), which is why BR SR got BR Standard BGs comparatively late.

The weathered LMS 50ft full brake at the front of the train is in BR Crimson livery, Nobby, so is fine. (I have one, too.)

You asked whether it was a feasible formation, and I confirmed that it wasn't only feasible but indeed essential.

I found an old and very basic tripod pan/tilt head and have fixed it to a crude device which sits on the top of the back scene. Two bits of strip wood are held together by a couple of small pieces of ply. The wood which is in contact with the front of the back scene has a piece of felt glued to it to prevent damaging the painted sky.



It will allow some new camera angles which would otherwise be difficult to achieve. Here's a sample:

It does, but I'd like to make a proper presentation with lots of editing. My broadcasting background, though not in TV, would make anything less unacceptable to me! I haven't got any video editing software at present so 'Wrenton, The Movie' will have to wait for a while.

I Use Wondershare Filmora.  It's cheap and effective and I haven't used half of its capability yet.  It's available to download.
With kind regards

Thanks for the suggestion, Laurence. I found a demo on YouTube and it looks pretty good and probably not too difficult to learn. I hope the Chinese authors havenít planted any nasties in the codeÖ

Iíve used Premiere Elements in the past, mainly because it came pre-loaded on a previous rather expensive Sony laptop. I donít know how similar the current version is but if itís not too different it might be a less steep learning curve than starting with a new program. As my current computer is getting unreliable a new machine might have to come before any editing software. So Wrenton, the Movie might take as long as a Hollywood epic!
