What a beautiful shot Tanker! Thanks for the websites! I shall definitely have good look at all of those!Everything is looking outstanding George! I've been gradually gaining interest in the Midland Railway and the other Pre-Grouping Companies of the LMS through my own independent research and my work on projects with my good friend Barney. (Particulary the L&Y, LNWR and especially the NSR.) As I was delving into research on the MR, I found a few different resources that I think you might like.
I'm not sure if you have already tapped into this website yet, but I get a lot of my diagrams and photography on the Midland via the Midland Study Center. They have diagrams on Locomotives, Coaches, Wagons, Buildings, Signals and much much more!
This website is run by my good friend Connor. His friend Ricardio has made some excellent Freeware Midland Railway locomotives for your route. Some of the classes that have been covered are the MR Class 2, MR Class 28, MR Class 116, MR Class 1400, MR Class 1252, MR Class 2501 and the MR Class 3F. I use many of them on my Pre-Grouping S&C Route along with Annie's fantastic Midland Half Cab model and Edh6's Midland Compound Design.
I hope this fantastic route one day finds it's way to the DLS. Running Trains through Pre-Grouping Stoke on Trent is something I would definitely enjoy!
Did you get the shelter I sent by email?
