    • What makes a good post? I am not exactly sure. Many of mine are somewhat self-indulgent. I see something I want to investigate and I write about it. ....There are older threads about Skelton Junction and surrounding lines on www.railforums.co.uk which I reference towards the end of this post.The reason I wanted to look at this was utterly self-indulgent.Long ago, .... long, long ago .... I lived in Broadheath. My home was less than a mile from Skelton Junction. Doing some investigation was as much about my roots as it was about railways. .... This short piece is the result:http://rogerfarnworth.com/2019/08/15/skelton-junctionThe really significant piece of work was what prompted my interest in the first place - an article by Eddie Johnson in the November 2003 issue of Steam Days.
    • Hi all We all have that modeling project or two that went wrong. This is one of mine a desert house for war-games that was made too small not a big disaster  But in terms of what it was supposed to be pretty major it's now a possible model railway building if I ever work out what on earth to do with it. I kept on with the work because it was going OK and except for glue and paint it cost me nothing. walls and roof left over foam core board A bit of polyfilla  and some coffee stirrers and a bit of gyp-rock tape for window bars basicaly done Now I just have to work out what to do with it as it really does have a middle eastern look to it. regards John
    • I have just picked up a copy of Global Railway Review. The July 2019 issue. The feature article focusses on infrastructure in Slovenia. It can also be found on line (https://www.globalrailwayreview.com/article/85929/slovenia-rail-infrastructure-investments). Jo, my wife, and I travelled to Slovenia in 2006 and stayed in Bled. Reading the article in Global Railway Review brought back memories of that holiday. The linked post highlights the changes in the Slovenian Railway System over the years and the Railway Museum. http://rogerfarnworth.com/2019/08/12/slovenia-railways-and-the-slovenia-railways-museum Don't miss out on the photographs from the museum in the appendix at the end of the linked post.  
    • This is probably my last post on the S&MLR. It covers the line and the military depots that it served from 1941 until it closure in the very early 1960s.   http://rogerfarnworth.com/2019/08/12/the-shropshire-and-montgomeryshire-light-railway-and-the-nesscliffe-mod-training-area-and-depot-part-2
