    Hello Lewisner,

    According to the NERA signal cabin register, Shincliffe Bank Top signal box, situated at 4 miles 71 chains and 16 links from Ferryhill No.3 box had a short working life, opening in 1904 and closing in 1911. It had 20 levers.
    Looking at the NLS 25 inch map for 1895 my guess is the closure came about with the abolition of the two refuge setback sidings provided at the location, one on the down and one on the up line.
    With a mile and a quarter 1 in 177 climb to the box in the down direction and a mile and a third 1 in 198 climb in the up direction these do not look like grades to me which normally required banking assistance.

    Well your logic is sound but presumably there was a reason for the Bank Top suffix ?
    The box name has been duly amended and here is Flying Scotsman passing on an express.

    So many good screenshots, - well done all of you.

    I'm now in TANE as well Ken. It's taken me a good while to do it, but finally today I had my main large Norfolk layout and its sessions fully installed into TANE SP3 with no missing dependencies. Now it's all the small fixing and adjustment jobs left to do, but there doesn't seem to be too many of those.

    Ah! The Hawksworth 1600s! Excellent example Ken!

    Shame that those little pannier tanks barely got a chance to work anything before BR hauled them off to Cashmoores and Barry Island. They were extremely useful at Cornish sheds though.

    Interestingly enough, I just bought the new 1649 model from Rapido Trains to add to my layout. That pannier started at St.Phillips Marsh before being sent to St.Blazey where it worked until 1959. From there it was sent to Helmsdale where it spent the last of its days.

    It was also one of the only 1600s painted in unlined green during the early years of BR. Quite an interesting little loco!

    Great shots! That's a very interesting signal box there in the first pic and also the wooden boxes that the rodding is emerging from Ken. Is that an improvisation? And what signal box is it?

    Excellent pictures as usual Ken. I'm a bit nervous about upgrading to SP4 in case everything gets busted and needs day's worth of work to fix it all.

    The B&FER 'Boat Train' from Foxhollow Wharf. The original MB&FER livery was green and No.3,- which has always been the boat train engine, - is a hold out by works staff against it being repainted blue.



    The wharf station at Foxhollow. Foxhollow is still a WIP. One of the reasons I moved my alternative Norfolk layout from TS2012 to TANE was that TS2012 was seriously wilting trying to run the layout in Driver and in Surveyor there were far too many lengthy pauses when I tried to do anything.



    A snap taken from the footbridge on platform 3 at the joint line station at Brenton Wood.



    Bluebell Magna station deep in the heart of former B&FER territory.



    Moxbury! Gate to the West, - or that's what the company brochures said not long before the official receivers moved in. The GER seeing a bargain were quick to snap up the B&FER before the Affiliated (Imaginary) Railway Companies could effect a rescue.





    Bunbury. Or I should say 'alternative' Bunbury. After I named the town and station I was told that there really was a village named Bunbury in Cheshire County dangerously close to the LNWR Cheshire-Crewe mainline. However having already done all the running boards & etc I refused to change the name, - so Bunbury it is and shall be ever more.

    Great shots Evilcrow and KotangaGirl. I love the variety!

    Evilcrow, your lighting and shadows are simply magic.

    KotangaGirl, the sign says Bunbury, so as you say, it shall be ever more.

    Partaking in refreshment at The Nags Head, Bunbury, sat in the pub garden on a quiet weekday afternoon one is likely to hear one of these passing by on WCML, the line is less than a mile to the north!

    Nice shots KotangaGirl, I like the carriages, are they Ken Green originals?

    Rob.

    I'm enjoying the shots of GWR stock in BR black livery. I've always thought most GWR locos look nicer in black than green (probably a controversial opinion). Even better are the small number of classes (Halls, Counties, some Saints and Manors) that appeared in the mixed traffic lined black with red backed number plates.

    Sorry Rob, but I'm sure the Nag's Head pub garden at (real) Bunbury is very nice though.

    Normally I check imaginary place names to make sure they aren't a real one, but this time I forgot.

    Thanks Rob, it was fun being a virtual trainspotter and taking the snaps.

    The carriages are by Ken Green, but with my teak artwork adapted to suit the coach body meshes. I'm sorely tempted to do a whole rake of them, but I'd really need to ask Ken first.

    Hello Paul,
    the wooden boxes are by Wujek 082 <kuid:440847:50436> get them here http://trainzart.pl/downloads.php?cat_id=2. I've sunk them in the ground by -1
    The signal box is by Steve Flanders get it here http://www.jatws.org/ing4trainz/gwr-buildings.htm
    Both sites have lots of other excellent stuff.

    re post #3835 KotangaGirl,
    Hello Annie,
    Good to see you getting to grips with TANE, nice effect your sceenshots have.

    re post #3836 Heinrich505
    Thanks for the compliment Heinrich505. The lighting is all down to whats in environment and post processing settings. (I can never rember what I did the last time).

    re post #3838 edh6

    I remember the 1985 GWR 150 railtours and how magnificent 7819 Hinton Manor looked in BR black.



    Cheers, Ken
