    Apart from a few small bits and pieces I now have the goods yard at Castleton done. One of the big problems with the Ashington branch layout in its original form was that while there were three industries served by the branch and all the stations on the branch had goods yards there wasn't a goods yard at Castleton to receive goods traffic from the branchline. Since I like shunting and trip working this was a situation I really did need to do something about.



    This is the view from the same spot on the original Ashington branch layout.

    Yikes, that is quite a difference, Annie. I like what you've done. Excellent work! It has a very real look to it now.

    Regards,
    Gary

    Thanks Gary, - planning it all out to make sure it would be properly workable was a bit tricky. I still have to install some new pointwork over on the Castleton station side of things so that goods trains from the branchline can access the goods yard.

    Annie I notice you are using JointedRail's crossing checkrails. These are very good models, but are based on massive bits of gear used on US main lines where the rail is enormously heavy, running about 130 lb/yard. UK practice was a much lighter profile at about 80/90 lb/yard and in your area and era probably lighter still. Rumor3 has some very nice crossing checkrails 79563:100110 and 112 which might be better suited, but unfortunately the bulk asset replacer can't be used on trackside assets and I know what a fiddle they are to fit!
    Pic for comparison...

    Those horrid great pieces of kit were used by the layout's original builder for some unknown reason Andy. I've been gradually working on replacing them with a frog and check rail model by frank_dean, but these aren't always ideal for all locations. The ones by rumour3 you posted look to be a lot better so I'll certainly give them a go. Thanks for telling me about them.
    For some strange reason I didn't know about rumour3's checkrails despite using his Uk Bullhead track for ages. Yes this kind of thing is tedious to fit, but I think it's well worth doing. I could just convert to procedural track, but with an existing legacy layout that's likely to open its own can of worms.

    EDIT: Rumour3's check rails are very good and look convincing once properly fitted in place, but they are soooo tedious and fiddly to work with. I'm going to keep at it though; - so far I have Ashington station and yard done and about a third of Castleton completed and I'll continue keeping on replacing the check rails station by station over the next few days until all those strange pieces of American ironware are gone.

    Thanks very much Ken. Another good looking atmospheric screenshot from you as well.

    Chrisaw's 'County of Berks' testing out the mainline on 'Ashington'. The Mk1 coaches are older models by Paulz Trainz and it looks like the restaurant car is cooking up a storm

    And Chrisaw's Modified Hall, 'Burton Agnes Hall', also out for a run on Ashington's mainline.

    On a bright, early morning (actually, very bright despite efforts to tone it down...) at Drummond Station, train schedules are kicking in as several passenger trains charge away from their platforms. The "Spam Can" is blasting mighty clouds of steam as she starts to accelerate. The sky is threatening to the west. Rain is forcast.

    Southern 1610 is working a special today, and will be leaving shortly, minutes after the morning rush has departed. The Station Master was hard pressed to find Southern Corridors for the run, so he apologized to the driver for the non-matching colors.

    [Editor's Note - any suggestions on closer matching colors would be appreciated...)

    Regards,
    Gary
