  1. Terminus, All Change!

    A British tram arrives at my 'Terminus - All Change!!!' Newest arrival is a 00/H0 scale Thompson-Houston 1890s Leeds Car obtained off eBay for £23! It looks like a Halling model, but the box is unmarked as it was for a UK commission and most of the stock ended up at Hattons. Mine didn't come from there.

  6. More mucking about with New Walmington Pier

    After cutting back some track at the shore end of New Walmington Pier (009) to eliminate the rough running I was left with a blank area. I recently found a shortened Bachmann Cable Car body and thought 'What an ideal Shelter' so after a bit of touching up and weathering, The former Walmington Town Tramway horse-drawn body will be relocated at the shore end of the pier as the new shelter. As John (Buz) says: 'A model railway can be completed but its never finished'
  7. Terminus, All Change!

    Thanks Chris, It was a tiring weekend but thoroughly enjoyable! All six trams and the bus worked the entire weekend faultlessly. I bought a decent trolleybus and sold my disgusting liveried Teesside Municipal Transport Trolleybus off the layout!! I just can't scrap this layout so it looks like my proposed Hong Kong layout will be my third one! Day One. Day 2 Day 3 Terminus - All Change!!! has a break until 14 April at Luton exhibition. Now to check over New Walmington Pier for the March exhibition in March.
  8. Terminus, All Change!

    All set up at Stafford and waiting for the masses!!

  10. Terminus, All Change!

    One hour in a freezing cold garage adding gutters and downpipes to 'Terminus - All Change!!!' One week before its first show of the year at Stafford Showground. I must be nuts!!!
  11. Don't let the organising title fool you, it wasn't all model buses!! In fact the model bus displays were outnumbered by model tramways and model railways!! I went there to help Mark Casson out on his 'Grime Street' layout as it was it's last day with him or it went to its new owner in Southampton the day after. Apart from Grime Street, I photographedBrian Abell's 'Valhalla Tramway Experience' and Stephen Read's 'Sandy Shore' bus display. Buses on Grime Street and that famous cyclist!! Looking along Grime Street Leeds Snowplough 3 - Yes it did exist!! Mark Casson and Grime Street Even my rail-mounted Corgi London Transport RT bus had a farewell run along Grime Street! Large-scale model of Electroline experimental trolleybus built by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive from a Dennis Dominator in 1985 and killed off by bus deregulation in 1986, the actual bue still operates at the Trolleybus Museum @ Sandtoft.

  12. All Cars Stop Here

    'All Cars Stop Here' (OO Scale Hong Kong Tram scene) I needed a re=think!!! Mock-up of my next tram micro layout influenced by Hong Kong Trams. Layout will be 3ft x 8ins with over 2ft 6ins viewing length from left to just past the rear tram shelter. Low relief backscene are two Bachmann modern office blocks, as the Bachmann multi-storey car park is now for sale (pm me if interested) as it is big, cumbersome and heavier than the layout!! Tram shelters are from 80M models in Hong Kong. and the layout represents a typical HKT tram stop with crossover acting as a temporary terminus. A run-down shed (as was at Sharp Street Depot, HK) will form the basis of a stabling/fiddle yard at the right hand end. #

    I wish I hadn't sold Essellty or its stock it would've paired up nicely with this?

    It makes Berney Arms look big!! It even makes my former Single Line Terminus Essellty look like a grand terminus!!
  15. Terminus, All Change!

    Got a busy time ahead until the Stafford Railway Circle Exhibition on 3rd and 4th February at the Staffordshire Showground, Weston Road, Stafford ST18 0BD. So I tested all my 'Terminus - All Change!!! Fleet today and my top performers are six trams and a bus!
