Re: Diesels at Crown Point.

A couple of scenes of Class 47 47517 Andrew Carnegie with a diverted Leeds Central to Edinburgh 'North Briton' Pullman Service. In real life a diverted service would travel the line to Wetherby and then turn left on the Church Fenton to Harrogate line. Arriving in Harrogate the train would be back o...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point.

Well they only built seventy four, so a few to go :lol: I had the same idea with the Merchant Navy Class - they built thirty and I now have twenty eight :roll: Barry Once you start it is hard to stop.

Re: Post Office / Parcelforce Scam

Glad nobody has fallen for the Scam. Having worked in the Postal Service (in every position except the Postal Trains), the Post Delivery person will try to deliver first. If unable to deliver, a (red) card is put through your letterbox saying 'Tried to deliver (etc.). A charge of XYZ has been made.'...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point.

The Winter and Harwood foreman appears to be sending someone back to work. The dog seems to approve. Are you sure it’s not Matt? Ran over me own toes with that pallet master. Hopefully, you shall do better. Looked for, but couldna’ find Matt. Are you sure he’s not at the pub tipping a few? I bought...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street.

It really does look like you have just had a downpour glencairn and as Ian mentioned the sun coming out reflected on the wall after the rain shower just makes it all look so real. Puddles Thank you for your comments, Puddles. Nothing fancy. I used a clear varnish to achieve the wet look. Glencairn

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street.

I love the way the sunlight illuminates some of the red brick wall in the first photo. A good contrast to the rest of the scene, which is nice and dark and dismal, as you said. Thank you for your kind comments IanAlan. I could say it took a little setting up, but no!. The light and sunlight in the ...
