As NPCCS (Non-Passenger-Carrying Coaching Stock), they would surely have to have a passenger rated Brake Van, such as a Mark 1 BG, a Hawksworth Passenger Brake or even an ex-SR Van B?

Only the roof of the fourth vehicle is visible but it is a Mk1 BG. So all is well!
Yes, that's what I was trying to reassure you about.  :thumbsup:

It's a while since I photographed the station end of the layout, so I've done a couple of new shots. Here's one to start with - number two still to go through the focus stacking process.

Absolutely breath taking scenery - Is there any likelihood of you exhibiting it?

Regards,

Alex

Thanks Alex. I don't have any plans to exhibit it - I think I'm a bit past the age when I want to transport the layout to shows, but it's good to share it here!

Roger,
As always I'm astounded by the attention to detail in your layout and how realistic it is.

I note the call for articles from learned practitioners in the latest n Gauge magazine. Do you think you could put together an article(s) on some aspect of your layout e.g. use of the cutting machine, the making of the buildings, and I'm sure there are other aspects that the NGS membership would like to read about.

Could you give it some thought please? You could become an accomplished author!

Keep up the good work

Cheers

Phil

 :hmmm: Just imagine the number of great layouts and models that, 20 years ago, went unseen by anyone other than the owners.

Here's the second of the photos of the station end of Wrenton. I haven't posted a portrait format shot before, well not the size of this one...

Lovely, lovely work.
That coal lorry looks mighty similar to one seen at Trepol Bay earlier :)
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Not the same though! I think Mr Cole's lorry is a Leyland FG flatbed.
