SEPTEMBER 2016 UPDATE  

**************

KIER HARDY (HORNSEY BROADWAY)


North British type 1 number D8404 (class 16) is seen resting at Hornsey Road depot in the company of BTH class 15s. This Heljan model is the latest to be outshopped by Paul James for his Eastwell fleet.


I couldn't resist including this pic, especially as I had to climb to the top of a lamp post to get it! The 2 class 15s behind (8231 & 8225) are also visitors from Eastwell.


D8404 is spotted on a ballast train at the station, and will no doubt be making plenty of return visits.


It's anyone's guess why a brace of Claytons were captured in North London hauling Scottish girders..... maybe for a new Barr's factory in East London, but a photo opportunity nonetheless!


This pairing is the latest by Greg Brookes for his Shenston Road fleet, and although they're not particularly suited to his West Midlands area either, it's a nostalgia trip regardless of the location.


Last month featured the shops near the station, so recent work has been concentrated in this area finishing the ballasting and making a start on detail for the platforms.

KEITH TRUEMAN (LESNEY PARK)


Lesney Park attended the Pine Rivers Model Train Show in Brisbane, Australia last month, and here's a few snaps of the layout taken during the weekend.


A view of the yard and factory.


The off-scene traverser which attracted a lot of attention from the visitors and other exhibitors.


A big thank you to Mark (pictured with a passing admirer) & Anthony for their help operating the layout.


The attendees badge - a nice touch engraved with the layout details.
