I love this layout as it reminds me so much of holidays long ago by the sea.

Some pictures from the Beaconsfield show, where there was yet another Southern area harbour layout. (see the Events section for the others)

The oiler vessel was moored in the creek for a change, with the fishing boat unloading at the ferry quay.


The Beattie tank did sterling work


At times the station was empty, often while I was trying to work out why there was a short circuit on the ferry siding, when it has worked perfectly under test at home - maybe the heat was responsible; something to do with the micro-switch I suspect, but tinkering when there were few visitors (during the football) failed to find a definite cause.


Loco no. 3 was on form and did much of the work during the day. Following a number of near misses, road traffic is now warned about the level crossing.

The little Dapol Pug, once warmed up (!) performed better in the afternoon, but went unrecorded.

The company's Terrier was also on good form and is seen here bringing a cut of wagons from the commercial quay into the station.


At 7pm the Beattie tank is seen leaving for the main line station with the last train of the day.


Apart from the short circuit, a couple of other finishing-off jobs are apparent from these pictures, the most obvious one being the fish-packing building which is all too obviously an empty shell when seen from some angles. The other is the Beattie well tank which urgently needs Southern Railway markings. The layout's next outing is at Burgess Hill in September, so there should be enough time for the upgrade work.
