Thanks for the comments,

Mario.....the figures are from the Pheonix Miniatures range which sadly seem to have vanished off the map. It's a real pity as it was a cracking range of 1:32 scale period figures and accesories (gas lamps,horses and useful 'bits'), I'm told that the moulds still survive so hopefully they may well appear one day. The ones I have have been picked up at exhibitions over the years when they were available. It does annoy me that on the military scene you can get exquisitely detailed figures (54mm) of every army from the Babylonians upwards , but no civilians...grrrr!


Cheers,

John

To give you an idea as to the size of the layout, the scenic bit is 7ft 6ins x 2ft and the storage area at the near end is another 3ft.......


The photo was taken at a local exhibition,


Cheers,

John

I just have to say that your B&W photos are exceptional, I had to look twice and the last one would fool anyone if a little smoke and some steam were added. My Grandfather was in charge of the Pola Naval Base in Austria Hungary during WW I and your photos are very similar to ones in the photo album he left me the track in the pavingstones is dead on.

John, welcome to the forums. Excellent first post. Modeling and photography are both top notch. I agree with George about your last pic, it looks very realistic. Hope to see more of your work soon.

John - I'd be most interested to see a trackplan, if at all possible - It certainly looks like some wonderful modelling

Hi Jack
I don't work to a track plan therefore one doesn't exist however this is as near as I can get.

Thre's a 'Barry' slip at the far end with two short stubs to make shunting (switching) a tad more interesting


Cheers,

John

Nice to see some English engines. I don't often see them. Interesting models. What are they? year, make, etc? I mean, the prototypes, not the make of the models.

I bet it took a while to lay all that cobblestone!

Hi Christopher,
The loco's (prototype)are Manning Wardle L class locos built at their works at Leeds, England in the 1890's/early 1900s.
The cobbles didn't take long to lay at all being from www.Kancali.com in the States...excellent stuff which took 2 days to lay it all,


Cheers,

John
