A very enjoyable day at the Beckenham show, with many bargains bought from the junk boxes in the Club Shop for my other layouts and future projects. Shellsea's new operating cards need a little tweaking, as some trains were found to be too long to be able to be shunted conveniently - the moral is to always keep some spare room in the goods yard! Towards the end of the afternoon we tested the locos from my 1860 project. All seem good for shunting, which bodes well for the new layout. Even one of the untamed Smoky Joe' conversions was behaving well.

A general view of the town and the tramway's station


Sailors and strollers. The Jolly Sailor Café, with approaching train.


Loco no. 3 pushes the fish/brake van into the fish-packing works


The little 0-4-0ST was also at work

Two more from the files. First off, another look at the tramway's milk or fish van - and a reminder that it needs some markings adding.


And now a look at the whole of the commercial quay. Since this picture was taken I've managed to source a collection of loads and clutter, so the area should look a lot more busy at its next outing.

A look at the quayside on the layout's first outing, showing how the main line exits the scene (pictures by David Thomas; rolling stock courtesy of Chris Ellis)



Some well known cut-outs, slightly adapted - other credits as before.
