    Default 1957 - GCR - Sheffield - Nottingham Footex and an L1

    WB Lewisner. Nice shot of Cox Green.
    Football Excursion passing New Basford on the former G.C.R. between Sheffield and Nottingham as Sheffield Wednesday fans travel to face Nottingham Forest.




    The L1 is hauling a ten coach rake of mixed BR Mk1 and Thompson non-corridor stock in a mixture of Carmine and Maroon liveries.

    Sheffield Wednesday fell to defeat 5-2 at Forest and would lose 2-1 at home to them too. At the end of the season Wednesday were relegated to League Division Two.

    *Warning Off Topic*

    I took a holiday recently from Trainz to save Cyrodiil for the sixth time in Elder Scrolls Oblivion with my custom unDead Elf Queen character. I have a liking for Fallout 3 as well and played for ages as a custom character, - a Rad Mutant, - and then as a super stealthy child character who had a habit of collecting landmines and then leaving them where enemies could step on them. I purchased Fallout New Vegas, but for some reason never played it.

    *Off Topic Warning Ends*

    It will be good to see some more of your Sunderland - Leamside route.

    #3561. D16/3 62614 of 31C Kings Lynn on branch line duty.
    I always like seeing your D16/3's at work tailight.

    #3572. A nice GCR area screenshot there Frank. Being a tank engine fangirl I can't help but like that L1 at the head of the train.

    #3573. Another great LBSC screenshot Ken. I just wish that a content creator for Trainz would give the GER the same amount of love.

    Default 1948 - ECML - Eryholme junction, an A5 and Thompson coaches

    Annie and Ken, great shots.

    A5 4-6-2T brings a Richmond branch passenger train from Darlington on to the branch at Eryholme junction station.




    The A5 is hauling three new Thompson non-corridor carriages. The leading Third and the Lav Compo were built in 1947 but the trailing 4-compartment Brake Third appeared in 1948, after nationalisation.

    #3577. Oooooo another big tank engine. You are not helping with my tank engine addiction Frank. Seriously though seeing the Thompson coaches reminds me of when Triang/Hornby released their Thompson coaches with a simulated teak finish and what huge ripples they sent through the model railway community at the time.


    If 2MT 'Mickey Mouse' tender engines are going to be put into a Cornish route they could at least be proper Western Region ones. This is an older model by Paulz Trainz which has some multipart options and I asked Paul to put together a representation of the real No.46509 in Brunswick Green livery. I need to fix the lining so it's the correct colours, but that's not hard to do.
    Nos. 46504, 46509, 46510, 46517, 46520, 46521, 46522, 46525, 46526 were outshopped from Swindon in lined green and Nos. 46503 and 46516 are believed to have been outshopped in unlined green. The word from aging trainspotters who actually saw the green WR 2MT's is they were generally kept cleaner than the black ones. Once my wallet stop screaming about being murdered I'll most probably get some more green 'Mickey Mice' to add to my early BR fleet.

    All the strange shiney blobby black gelatin Ivatt 2MT's have been banished which is just as well since I was getting tired of wiping up all the gooey black puddles they leave behind. Plainly N3V hadn't actually sighted them when they were made 'Built-in' because they are just awful

    No. 46509 now properly lined out and with a few tiny texture mods done to tidy her up a bit. It's a lovely engine to drive and its speed and braking can be adjusted smoothly without N3V's back seat driver nagbot putting up any stupid messages about the quality of my driving.

    Default 1954 - A Whitby Extra and a 4MT

    Hello Annie, I have decided to utilise a really rare engine in my stable to turn up the large tank kryptonite effect on you. The BR Standard Class 4 Passenger Tank was almost unknown on the BR NE Region. One (80117) went to Whitby in mid-1954, followed by 80116 to York and 80118 to Whitby, both in mid-1955.




    Here, in late spring 1954, the brand new 80117 brings an extra working from Whitby via Saltburn and Middlesbrough in to Darlington. The train is a mixture of Thompson and ex-NER carriages, with the trailing Thompson BC still not altered to unlined Carmine. It might be a working related to the Whitsuntide holidays.

    80116 would move from York to Whitby in June 1955, a month after being allocated to York. She would spend three months from February 1956 at Scarborough before returning to Whitby. All three 4MTs would move to Neville Hill in June 1958, though 80116 would shift to Holbeck MR shed in June 1963. November 1963 would see all three move to Scotland, where they would remain until withdrawal in 1966/67.

    Very much a Hornby Dublo reminder Frank. The standard classes certainly got a raw deal with many still being relatively new when they were sent off to be scrapped. I think they often get overlooked by modellers as well and I know I've been guilty of that. I may not get a 4MT for my collection, but I wouldn't mind getting a 2MT 2-6-2T or two since they would fit right in with my liking for backwater branchlines.
    It was only because of the awful 2MT 'Mickey Mice' locos on the Cornish Mainline route that I took a closer look at these engines and discovered that some of them had been outshopped from Swindon so naturally I had to have at least one.

    Default The BR Standard 2MT

    Hello Annie, if I recall it correctly, the heritage Great Central Railway has a couple of 2MTs for operating along their double track main line on quieter weekdays and they are greatly pleased with their economy on the three and four-coach train sets which are adequate for their off-peak periods. I think that the 2MTs cost considerably less than what would be required to operate a 4-6-0 or a pacific on those days. Over the course of a season those savings add up to a considerable sum of money. Of course Riddles had in mind the savings on coal and maintenance which a 2MT could provide on rural and branch services compared to an older, larger pre-nationalisation steam engine previously cascaded to the services. Time would mean that the 2MTs never realised that potential, since they were swept aside quite quickly by the diesel locos and DMUs of the modernisation plan. All in all a dreadful waste of capital.

    There's a research paper going begging; "Determine whether the captal investment in standard steam designs by Riddles would have been better spent by the British Transport Commission on infrastructure work instead"

    You're right about the 4MTs Frank. The Standard Four Tanks worked the locals of the Midland and Southern Regions more than anything. They were so popular in Brighton that they gained the nickname "Brighton Tanks" from Southern residents that frequented the line. I'm a fan of the 3MT Tanks personally but it's impossible to discuss the 4MTs without talking about its definite Southern roots.

    Seeing this reminds me of the 4MT Tank I am working on with Ron. I haven't gone back to it recently but I'm starting to get the itch now...

    Looking at my loco-shed allocation book for 1957 a see that 42083 of the Fairburn 2-6-4T was allocated to Whitby while 42084 & 42085 allocated to 50E Scarborough at this time. 42066-42105 built at Brighton & most allocated to SR sheds at that time.

    Re Class 2MT Mogul 46521 green livery worked al lot at Swanage last year when the line was operating.

    re post #3578 KotangaGirl
    Attached screenshot shows 4MT with "gelatin" AND without.
    The old friend "IM Editor" to the rescue or at least as a gelatin remover.
    Make a clone and open up body.im with IM Editor, look for objects 6, 7 and 8, click on material and in Material name,
    change tbumptex to onetex. Do this for the three objects, also delete the Bump texture, you will get a redbox and a warning, just ignore and save.
    Go to the body_diffuse-body_diffuse.texture.txt file open and delete the alpha line and save.
    Make the image "body-diffuse.tga" visible in your image editor if not already visible and save.
    Change all the body ims as well.
    Commit and all should (!!) be well.
    Not sure what effect this will have on TRS19 as this is first time I've had a go at anything TRS19, this screenie included and am not impressed.



    Cheers, evilcrow
