A selection of member’s models of items that don’t run on rails, powered or otherwise.
A loco shed based on Bath S&D shed in 7mm scale. This detailed model benefits from the latest techniques in laser cutting and etching. Details here.
The crane from Albion Quarry, the model and the prototype. The model was adapted to represent one of the powered cranes on Portland. The shed hides a lot of gears! On the hook is a pair of “quarry dogs”. They are a pair of scissors that grip as the weight comes on. Whilst they work, my Portland stone was rather light so gravity was assisted by a magnet. This also stopped the stone swinging wildly when the layout was knocked.
An fine array of 4mm scale railway buildings in the Kingsferry goods yard.
The part modelled interior of the 4mm scale Verwood Station Building
only made possible thanks to Mark Warr’s Dad.
The superb signal box on The Summit, window open ready for the bobby
to flag a movement across the crossover – yes he really can and does!
Masterful repairs to the 7mm scale Evercreech New Goods Shed by an actual architect.
The laser cut carcass of the 7mm scale viaduct for Evercreech New,
designed and built by very nearly a civil engineer (see also boring).
Our laser cut mock-up of the landscape around Prestleigh Viaduct
showing one of the steeper bits of the old Somerset and Dorset Railway.
4mm scale Fred Dibnah, or at least one of his 4mm scale deadly rivals
hard at work at trying to demolish South Junction.
Laser cut 4mm scale test build for the platform mounted
LSWR Type 1 signal box at Verwood.
To finish some superb cameo modelling on 7mm scale Gas Works
by Bob Alderman – yes the fan was turning for the photo!
