    I remember black and white photography, TS19 now has colour by the way, provided the content creators take advantage of the feature.

    Great shot, Ken. B&W shots can be so evocative. Very nice!

    Post #3864 and 3867 These are amazing screenshots Ken! Excellent job with the famous City of Truro! Didcot should hire you for some promotional campaigns!

    Post # 3856 and 3865 - Always a pleasure to see your Norfolk layout coming into focus again Annie! Looks like you have your hands full with the busy summer season starting on the line!

    Very nice early morning screenshots at Dearnby Tanker.

    No.8 starts away from the small station at Tenpenny Beach on the Windweather Loop with an interesting collection of elderly coaches.



    I've not posted many screenshots of Windweather Harbour. No.8 crosses the swing bridge across the entry to the harbour. There's a second swing bridge at the other end of the harbour basin. The harbour at Windweather is a tidal harbour with lock gates even though I've been told that such a thing would be seriously unusual on the Norfolk coast.

    Fantastic shots all, keep up the great work!

    @Tanker, RE post #3873, what an unusual GWR brakevan. It looks like an 8 wheeler Toad?

    And is that autocoach in the last shot a new model or an updated Andi06 asset? It looks different; smaller windows and additional detailing on the body not to mention a lovely new underframe and bogies.

    Cheers,

    Nice screenshots Annie & a swing bridge like that is still in use not far away in Lincolnshire as the line crosses the tidal River Haven to enter Boston Docks & is still in use complete with ex GNR signals. The docks used to ne worked by ex GER J67 or J69 0-6-0T engines. Some nice coverage on Youtube of shunters crossing the bridge & also the bridge swinging into position.

    Thanks for that tailight. Youtube's search engine was being dead brained, but I did manage to find a video about the swing bridges.

    I figured you would be one to notice Parker!

    The brake van in question is a semi fictional 25T Brake that has been dubbed the "Octo Toad".

    Although they were never produced in real life, the design was drawn up by Collett for use on heavy goods trains in Plymouth and Lickey. They were designed using the GNR 8 Wheeler as a base I believe. But in my little "universe" they are Dearnby Brakes used for heavy fish and market trains.

    The Autocoach is not Andi06's - but it's script sure is! It's a new build that I happen to be beta testing at the moment. They also have BR Crimson and Cream and Maroon Liveries as well!

    Both are made by my buddy Welshman from discord. He made those BR Mk1s a while back and now he's trying his hand at some new equipment! It's really amazing and I'll ask if I can share the links when I get back to my computer tonight!

    The last new item I forgot to mention is the GWR Hall Class that's shown up in every screenshot. Pilotwoo is letting me run the kinks out of it so hopefully it will be ready for public use soon in the future!

    How far down the line to York are you planning to go ? I'd be happy to send you my Malton & Driffield route which I think is OK height and orientation wise at Malton.

    Default 1946 - Handling vans on a Misty Morning

    Tanker46, Kotangagirl, taillight98 and evilcrow, great shots.
    Lewisner, thanks for the offer but at the moment the plan is to stop about a mile past Seamer on the York line. Unsure whether or not to go as far as Filey Holiday Camp on the Bridlington line. The idea is to produce a route which involves managing Scarborough as a terminus or rather as a triple terminus in effect with the distant Whitby bay platform by Falsgrave box and the excursion station at Londesborough Road. I have my doubts as to whether the AI can handle the sheer number of summer Saturday trains within the headways required. Londesborough probably had to have had at least two pilot locos rostered to haul the excursion trains out and take the empty stock to the carriage sidings between the gasworks and mere gate. The train loco can then be released to Scarborough shed for servicing and stabling. using the carriage sidings at Washbeck does not seem to be an easy move from Londesborough Road station as it involves gaining the up main and then running down by the gasworks before backing in to the carriage sidings at Washbeck. This would possibly have caused uproar with the potential for delays. There may have been no alternative though once the eight roads at the down sidings were full.

    Today I have been trainzing at Newcastle. At the west end of the station on a misty morning during the early post-war period, a J72 0-6-0T shunts a pair of elderly ex-ECJS 56ft6in BGs.




    In their youth these BGs would have been part of the consists on anglo-scottish main line passenger expresses. However, as their status has declined both BGs have suffered the indignity during WWII of being turned out of works in flat brown paint. Many pre-grouping carriages received this livery as a wartime economy due to the shortage of skilled labour. For most it would persist in to the nationalisation era and their ultimate withdrawal.

    Great screenies everybody !
    Here is a Clayton Class 17 hauling coal southbound past Newbottle Lane level crossing as an NCB J94 takes empties to Moorsley on the parallel NCB tracks. The row of railway houses here is still a prominent feature so I did a bit more detailing than normal. I've never found a photo of the signalbox despite it surviving into the 60s.

    Good shot Lewisner.
    Yes, Newbottle Lane SB (AKA Dubmire Lane SB) is an elusive one. An everyday work item which was evidently invisible to people going about their daily business.
    According to the NERA Signal Cabin Register between 1895 and 1926 it was a ground box of Northern Division Type 2 and built in brick. Details were 14 levers and 11 ft 8 in long with the width also 11 ft 8 in. So, a square box with an operating floor height only 7 ft 8 in above rail level. This was superseded in 1926 by the box which would remain until March 1966 but the register is silent on the details. My opinion is that it won't have been any larger than its predecessor except for possibly the height of the operating floor level. A higher viewpoint would have been useful when motor traffic was expanding.

    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.

    Cheers, Ken
    Thanks Ken - I've had this signal box downloaded since 2018! Just goes to show how easy it is to forget what you've got installed. Thanks for the reminder - this box is exactly what I've been looking for.

    Thanks for the info ! I used to have a photocopy of an NER Proposals For The Introduction Of Block Signalling from Kew PRO dated 1874 and the Inspector wrote in disparaging terms about the boxes at Dubmire and Adventure Pit where I think he said the former was a crude wooden hut with a tarpaulin over the roof. If it was replaced in 1926 my guess would be that it was similar to Coxgreen box which was replaced when Lambton Junction box closed and the junction was worked by Motor Points from Coxgreen. I did a reskin of Mark's Menheniot Signal Box a many years ago and here it is watching over 55010 heading south on a Sunday diversion. I use the NSWGR signals on the NCB lines because, although they are not slotted posts, they have the dirty and rundown look I associate with NCB lines.
