    A3 60084 Trigo heads north past the lonely outpost of Whitwell signalbox on the Leamside line. Sadly I never visited this box and it was demolished in 1995, 4 years after the line closed. There used to be a coal mine and small village here but the mine closed in 1874 and the village disappeared by the 1930s.

    You're not alone in that opinion Ed! I quite like the Lined Black many of the GWR locos wore and the red numberplates are my absolute favorite. My 9400 model has them fixed to them and it's quite a sight on the layout!

    The most common 4-6-0s to wear that livery would probably have been the 6959 Modified Halls, 7800 Manors, and the 4700 Night Owl Class. But the two most commonly painted black GWR Classes were the 4300 moguls and the 6800 Grange Class.

    The Granges were painted in BR Black from the start of BR and only a few locomotives recieved the Brunswick Green during the early years of BR. (Bodicote Grange being one of them!

    Personally I think that was a good choice given how they were built for goods trains - really don't care for the undersized Churchward Tenders they fixed to them though!

    The reskinned pannier tank is a good piece of work and skipper1945 certainly did some sterling work with the original.
    A busy day at the station Annie.
    Great shots Ken and taillight.
    Here is something I am in the very early stages of working on and I wonder how fast people will work out where it is?




    I believe that it is nowhere you have seen Trainz screenshots from before, well certainly not from me anyways.

    I'm guessing Scarborough with the Washbeck signal gantry ?

    Hello Lewisner - yes Scarborough. The shot of the MPD looking west-southwest. The 65ft GWR turntable by 2995Valiant stands in for the real world 60ft one. I have reproduced internally the layout of the NER roundhouse using a 48ft turntable by Paul Mace instead of the correct 44ft N.E.R. one since there appears to be none on Trainz, well not one with 18 tracks..... I have had to cobble together the building from the late Andi06's assets. The southern straight road shed is also a compromise, two LNWR four-road sheds. The splendid gantry is the work of chrisaw.

    #3843. Another wonderful project to test your skills Frank. Make sure you keep us posted as to your progress.

    #3844. A fine looking D10 tailight. All mine are in GCR livery, so I hadn't seen on in LNER livery before. I've always liked the LNER cream and white tourist coaches as well; - they make a good match.

    #3841. The lonely signalbox makes for a great screenshot lewisner.

    No.4 waits at Moxbury with the morning 'main stations only' passenger train to Foxhollow. Since joining the GER Society I've learned a lot more about GER headcodes so No.4 should benefit from what I've learned fairly soon.



    And we're off.

    re post #3843/6 borderreiver.
    Plenty of information and interesting items in your shots, and I concur that looks a splendid gantry from chrisaw. His excellent signals must populate 99% of current UK routes.

    Looking good Annie, sorry to read of your Portal problem on the other thread.



    Cheers, Ken

    re post #3847 KotangaGirl
    Looking good Annie, sorry to read of your Portal problem on the other thread.
    Thanks very much Ken. I think the problem is that session has been written and re-written so often in TS2012 moving it across to TANE was the last straw. I am looking at replacing portals with loops wherever possible. In TS2012 I'd replaced the portals west of Bunbury with a three track loop and that worked out much better with regards to more reliable timekeeping.
    I'm making a start on the portals north of Great Mulling and I picked the simplest one first. The schedule for the Mulling on the Hill branch is very much self contained with running into platform 2 at Great Mulling, running round and then heading back to the branchline as its basic scheduled route. The timetable only needs two set piece trains so a fairly basic loop was all that was needed.

    I don't do hidden loops as I much prefer to disguise them in the scenery



    The halt is Mulling Wood Halt, the two storage sidings represent Mulling on the Hill.



    Testing. I used the Great Mulling pilot engine and a rake of six wheelers from the carriage siding as the test train.



    It looks like the regular crew of No.34 has picked up a supervisor along the way. This is platform 1 as I wanted to check out using either platform for the branch train.



    And going round the loop. Trains in the two holding sidings will be out of sight behind Mulling Wood and can't be seen from normal viewing positions along the line. Next on the list will be the main northern line which I think is going to be a pain.
    Great Mulling is a junction for the Mulling on the Hill branch, two goods only branches, the main northern line and a north easterly secondary line. And it was all working so nicely in TS2012 too (sigh).

    Very nice shots Annie & I also prefer a hidden loop rather than using portals on my routes. I like working out the timetable for a single track branch or rural by way.

    KotangaGirl,
    Those are really nice shots! The engine and coaches really compliment one another.

    I'm sure the crew were thrilled to have a supervisor along. They would certainly have preferred to have "pant-suit girl" instead. I haven't seen her crewing any engines lately, so I wonder if management got her an inside job more commensurate with her attire. That would be too bad, as she sure liked crewing engines.

    I really like your work on the coaches. They have a very realistic feel to them.

    Thanks tailight. Branchlines and rural by ways are very much my thing too. My 'big station' at Great Mulling is a tiddler really compared with some of the ones that get posted here. I enjoy working out timetables too and it's always good when things slot together nicely without any 'cornfield meets'.

    Thanks Heinrich. The strange cross-eyed pant-suit girls are a feature of TS2019 ; - in TANE they still have women on the footplate, but they are dressed properly as an engine driver should be. I very much approve of that.

    The 0-4-2 well tank is a Hurst built in 1857 and is a part of Paulz Trainz mid-19th century collection. The teak coaches are Paulz Trainz N.E.R. six wheelers that I've modded a bit to become Eastlingwold & Great Mulling Railway coaches. I'm sure Frank could tell you more about their proper origins instead of my imaginary backstory which might be interesting, but certainly isn't true. They are very nice coaches though. The E&GR tends to collect interesting elderly engines and hold on to them, but their regular passengers are glad that the coaches are a bit more modern.

    One of the most challenging aspects of my Leamside route is that there were coal mines - lots of them, and branches to serve them. Bowburn Colliery had an Aerial Conveyor to dump waste in the nearby fields and it was quite a struggle to recreate it based on no info and no photos ! Eventually I found the parts by searching for "Gondola" and finally "Lanark Mine Bucket" completed it. Here it is being passed by a J94 on southbound empties. There should be a safety net underneath it but I can't find one on the DLS.

    There were aerial conveyors like those here in the Waikato (NZ) that I can remember very well from when I was a teenager. When I was last out that way about 15 years ago they were still there, but not in operation anymore. I supposed by now they've been demolished and gone for scrap.
