    Now there's a surprise! Are those Camscott's North Staffordshire locos? I don't think I've seen anybody use them in quite some time! They still looks splendid as ever! Bravo Jimmy!

    Finally got the ball rolling on Haywards Heath Station on the Brighton Route. This is about two and a half weeks of work and its still only half done!

    Station is in place along with the goods yard, urban coal staithes, and overpass leading out of the station. I also added in the Cattle Dock that Haywards Heath retained until the closure of steam in 1967. It can be found little ways outside the station. Work on the town below is now commencing, but it is going to take a bit to complete. Pretty happy with how it turned out though!

    In commemoration of the Station's completion, I decided to run in my Maunsell U Class in it's final livery - Bulleid Sunshine Black! Although the route is 1950s centered, Haywards Heath pretty much stayed in the same configuration from the 1930s all the way to the 1970s. I think that a 40 year consistency is pretty amazing for a station on the main line don't you?

    Now the U Class has been decked out in all the liveries it carried during it's career - thank you Camscott! I also finally started the commission for the SR Liveries for all my LBSCR Locos so stay tuned for a lot more of the same!

    Nice shots HotshotJimmy and Tanker46, your route is sure taking shape. Intrigued by the Police Box on the platform.

    Still in TANE



    Cheers, Ken

    That Blue Police Box couldn't be suspicious in the slightest Ken. Love your latest screenshot by the way. The positioning of the two trains at different levels combined with the effects of light and shadow make for an interesting screenshot.

    Nice to see further work on your magnum opus Brighton route Tanker.

    We don't often get to see Camscott's NSR engines in screenshots Jimmy. Nicely done.

    Having seen all the latest screenshots and route creations in this thread (those by the last four people in particular), I wanted to get back into route/screenshot making myself again. It is unfortunate how TRS19 treats 'older' assets that I always use, but the "build bug bite" has not worn off quite yet.

    A phoney photograph in some album collection. The station name and date have been smudged by the careless owner.


    Since this is a "screenshot thread", I will attach unedited version, this can be found here:

    All great screenies people and yes I went on a wee shopping spree when I got the Class 27 haha. They're a great addition to the route for personal use of course. Crow is still showing us up with those images from TANE. Gorgeous work.

    Default 1902 - An M Class and a NER Express Passenger for Liverpool

    Lots of work on display lately, a very busy thread.




    The NER compound M Class 4-4-0, from 1914 redesignated as 3CC Class.
    At the time of allocation to Gateshead shed the King Edward Bridge did not exist, so all traffic to/from the south of the Tyne had to traverse the 3-track High level Bridge built by Robert Stephenson. By 1900 it was clear that the bridge had reached its capacity, becoming a bottleneck to the growing traffic across the Tyne and the company drew up plans for a second crossing.

    Ah! So many questions about that!

    I spoke with the stationmaster about it and he had no idea where it came from. All I know is that some bloke asked if he could pay to keep it there. Said he was some sort of 'Doctor' but he didn't look like any doctor I've ever seen.

    The NSR locos are an excellent addition Jimmy. It was one of the last loco packs I bought from Camscott but by god do they operate well.

    They have a home on my PLL Route in TANE with the rest of my LMS Locos. I really should revisit it one of these days, that New K 0-6-2T is so fun to run in!

    Default 1958 - A3 power

    During the summer of 1958 Gateshead shed's A3 Pacific SANSOVINO finds itself far from home turf on a summer evening up secondary passenger working on the southern ECML. The five Thompson carriages are in a minority, with six BGs of mixed Gresley and Thompson designs in the consist, three at each end. Several carriages in the consist remain in the earlier carmine/carmine and cream liveries.



    Approaching Grantham with the up working. There will be an extended stop in order to load the parcels for London Kings Cross and to unload any bound for Grantham.




    SANSOVINO gets away from Grantham, steam threatening to obscure the Gresley Diagram 245, 43 and 45 BGs at the head of the train.



    Getting in to her stride as she leaves Grantham. Next stop Peterborough.

    For decades, this was the way parcels moved along the Great Northern Main line, in vans attached to secondary passenger services. In many cases there were more vans than passenger carriages and nobody could expect fast timings when each stop was extended for loading/unloading. At some stops vans could be added or removed, further extending the stop. SANSOVINO went in to Doncaster works in October 1958, just a year after emerging from there after a light casual and in October 1958 received a double chimney along with a boiler change, exchanging dgm 94A 27042 for dgm 94A 27076.

    Ashington is one of those nice older layouts that I have a big soft spot for. It's a late 1950s Western Region BR branchline layout put together creatively with what assets were available at the time and despite using a certain amount of S&C railway buildings still manages to carry off being a WR layout. All I really needed to do was change out some of the old legacy trees and upgrade and adjust some of the signalling and Ashington was good to go in TRS19.
    Some 2MT standard tank engines were transferred to the Western Region in the late 1950s to work on branchlines and that was all the excuse I needed to dust off No. 41202.

    Hello Annie, well done on reviving older layouts, there must a lot of forgotten gems out there. Must have a look at this one you found.
    Ivatt 2MTs could be found almost anywhere, a really useful locomotive.

    Still in TANE

    You're Fantastic Ken. Never stop doing what you are doing.

    In regards to Annie's 2MT Post. I noticed that the loco in question is not an Ivatt 2MT but in fact a Riddles Standard 2MT Tank! The differences are quite miniscule but there's no mistaking it for me!

    The Standard 2MT Tank actually got quite a bit of runtime in around Brighton in the late 50s. As the Radials were gradually withdrawn and the Fairburn Tanks were sent north the 2MTs and 4MT tanks flooded in to take their place. The Riddles 2MT actually were the main locos that operated the branch to Brighton Kemp Town station in the twilight years of the line.

    Come to think of it, I don't think I added Kemp Town in when I modeled Brighton. Might have to rectify that when I extend to Newhaven...

    Thanks Ken. Yes Ashington is well worth searching out. There will be the usual problems over incompatible version 5 Speedtrees and the signaling could do with a wee tidy up, but really as a workable layout it's pretty darn good right out of the box. I've installed loops and portals at each end of the mainline trackwork stubs and I'll be doing something about making the MPD at Castleton look a bit more like a working steam era MPD. With all the industries on the branch Castleton could really do with a goods yard as well, but at least I don't have to worry about doing any major fixups for once; - the one big advantage of a freelance layout, - no finding any historic photos that will ruin my day.

    I've got three 3MT standard tank engines as well mostly because I used to have the 00 gauge Triang version when I was teenager. I was all pre-grouping snobby for a while over not wanting to own any of the Standard classes, but they were well designed and serviceable engines and if it hadn't been for the bigoted interference of Motorway Marples and his minions they would have given good service for a good many more years than they did.

    In regards to Annie's 2MT Post. I noticed that the loco in question is not an Ivatt 2MT but in fact a Riddles Standard 2MT Tank! The differences are quite miniscule but there's no mistaking it for me!
    Hum..... Paul listed my 41xx 2MT's as being Ivatt 2MT's and the three I've got are numbered by request for the three that were assigned to 82A Bristol Bath Road in the late 1950s.
    Mind you he does list the 84xx Riddles 2MT's as well and they have the slightly curved down top to their tanks to improve forward visibility as well as the front footplating that covers the valve chests.

    BR Ivatt 2MT.



    BR Riddles 2MT. Nos. 84020-84029 all went to the Southern Region.
