A Sprung Class 37 Source: Eastmoor | 28 Jan 2015 | 12:25 am UTC
The beginnings - Bachmann loco and Penbits conversion kit.It's quite odd sometimes how you can be so up for doing something, so enthused and raring to go up until the point at which you sit down, things waiting in front of you and then you just seem have absolutely no will to do any of it. I don't k ....
With 1454 finished (don't panic, we have 2 independent witnesses confirming it was indeed in unlined green with the early emblem), I'm now working on the Autotrailer. I reckon I bought this when I was about 13, which is a long, long time ago. I know there's a new RTR model in the pipeline but that's ....
Just a quickie. Happy to report Minion has been successfully delivered to Wheal Elizabeth and will be on shed this coming Saturday at the Sodbury Vale show In Yate. It will get toned down a bit when I can bear to get the airbrush out but at the moment it's too cold to stay in the garage for long. Ex ....
Hornby's New Sentinel Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:07 pm UTC
This is perhaps, in many ways, one of the most significant ready to run (RTR) releases we have seen for a long time. On the face of it, it may not look it but bear with me, my story gets better.A RTR model to a decent standard is not, in itself, something which stands out now, but the subject matter ....
Football Special Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:06 pm UTC
47810 Peter Bath MBE 1927-2006 leads a football special filled with Chelsea fans bound for Hull with 47853 Rail Express at the rear. Class 47s with mark 2 coaching stock on the Hull line? We like that! ....
More Teenage Kicks Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:06 pm UTC
While looking for a few things a while back I came across these photos!These show a teenage effort from around 1997-ish which is, sadly, the only layout I have, so far, ever got to a stage where saying it was 'complete' was believable!It was supposed to be mid-Wales but to me now, it really doesn't  ....
Barnetby 1996 Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:06 pm UTC

ModelRAIL 'Aureol' Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:05 pm UTC
Whatever happened to Lawrence Dickinson?In the early nineties he wrote a couple of superb articles on diesel modelling which appeared in ModelRAIL when it was still a supplement in RAIL. The first I saw was an excellent article on modelling class 47s using the Lima model as a base. Former Rail Expre ....
More Brake Vans Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:05 pm UTC
West Halton will need a couple of brake vans - I've posted about them previously here and here. I think I just like brake vans - much like signal boxes, there's something intriguing about what lies within! I found a lovely photo of a brake van at Frodingham depot on 8th June 1992, taken by John Dedm ....
Euro Shed Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:03 pm UTC
GB Railfreight's euro-spec 66747 is seen here passing Broomfleet Signal Box with the 6C72 Hull Coal Terminal - Eggborough Power Station service. What makes it unusual is the use of JNA and KEA scrap wagons for coal traffic; GBRf have been using these for a good few months now however only in the las ....
On Borrowed Time Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:03 pm UTC
Destined for storage within days, DBS' 60071, 'Ribblehead Viaduct', passes Crabley Creek Signal Box with 6J94, bound for Rotherham from Hull Docks.I arrived for the late turn just as this was approaching so I managed a shot from the ground instead of the box for once! ....
Bob Crow 1961 - 2014 Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:02 pm UTC
Yesterday brought a shock for RMT members with nes of the death of the RMT General Secretary Bob Crow at the age of just 52 years of age.Enthusiasts, which I presume most readers here are, often don't see this side of the railway but it is just as relevant as any details about what livery a certain  ....
Class 08 Improvements Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:01 pm UTC
Being spare at work today I managed a bit of modelling time - the longest session I've had in a long time too. Quite a nice bit of progress too with this one. New steps have been added using Crownline components recovered from a teenage effort, fitted with new handrails and a cross piece from brass  ....
The Statesman Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:01 pm UTC
On day one of a tour from Hull to Fort William, West Coast class 57s, 57314 and 57315 are top and tail of 1Z24 as it passes Crabley Creek Signal Box on the Hull - Selby line. It will take thirteen hours to complete the journey! ....
Two Days, Three Class 37s Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:01 pm UTC
A couple of days at Gilberdyke this week brought a total of three class 37s! Both were working track recording trains. Direct Rail Services 37607 and 37609 worked 1Q13, Derby RTC - Derby RTC via Hull and the following day 97301, formerly 37100, worked 1Q14 Neville Hill - Derby RTC via Hull. They sou ....
In The Balance Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 3:00 pm UTC
Just a little bit of progress this afternoon with my class 08 - Brassmasters' balance weights have been added and infilled with Milliput. One of those satisfying sessions where you actually feel like you've achieved something by then end of it! ....

York MRS 2014 Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:59 pm UTC
Over Easter we visited the York Model Railway Show - it's very much an institution in the hobby I feel - if you're in Yorkshire and the North and you don't visit, you really are missing out.New BryfordOne layout which was always a favourite of mine from its appearance in ModelRAIL, the old supplemen ....
A Morning in East Yorkshire Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:59 pm UTC
This is a nice civilised way to spend a morning - in good company, sat out int he sun by a railway line waiting for trains to go by!I went out with my friend James for a few hours on Monday morning waiting in the sun for freight trains! Very civilised!Click on the images to see the full size version ....
Over the Ouse Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:58 pm UTC
Refurbished class 60, 60001, passes over the River Ouse via Goole Bridge.There haven't been many updates recently, but normal service should resume soon. ....
Still Here, Still Alive Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:58 pm UTC
The title says a lot - and it's not a flippant one in the slightest. Over the last year (maybe longer?) I've not been well. And it's not something people talk about enough - it's not a physical condition, which makes it harder for many to understand. Depression and anxiety are subjects which many pe ....
Happy Christmas! Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:57 pm UTC
I'd like to wish you all a great Christmas and a happy new year! May the day bring you all many train shaped gifts! ....
How to be a Good Son in Law Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:57 pm UTC
My attempt to ensure I remain the number one son in law!As both a Christmas present and as a thank you for all the work which my Mother in Law's partner has been doing on our house, this is seemed ideal. His layout is Cornish with china clay workings, 8702 was a St Blazey engine, and matched the Bac ....
Class 25 All Done! Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:56 pm UTC
As my last post mentioned, I've not completed much this year. However, this is the main result of my modelling for the year! All the other posts about the model can be found here.I did finish one other loco this year, a model of 'Devious Diesel' for Thomas - I think he was pleased with it! ....
In These Times of Austerity Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:56 pm UTC
A very long term resident of the my workbench is this model of a Hull based WD ('Dub-Dee') no. 90695 - and it is very much a long term project as my first post was in 2009 and another in 2011!WD No. 90695 - You will have to excuse the background of my parents' kitchen!The model is based around Bachm ....
While the World Sleeps Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:55 pm UTC
While most people are in bed, VolkerRail's ballast regulater, DR77802, waits at Gilberdyke for a T3 possession to be granted. The possession is to the other side of Goole and cannot be granted until the last passenger train has left Goole station. Until then, the crew and machine have to wait patien ....
Winter at Gilberdyke Junction Source: Eastmoor | 23 Jan 2015 | 2:53 pm UTC
The snow is disappointingly thin for photos really, but it was still a pain to get to work. It's not even snow by this point, it had started to thaw and is now just thick ice making life hard for p-way who were out packing the junction between trains. And while they wait, DBS 66088 tears through Gil ....

Have had a bit of a modelling spurt and finished off 1454. Should be released to the operating department for Wheal Elizabeth's forthcoming appearance at the Sodbury Vale show on 31 January (though what the engine is doing in that part of Cornwall is anyone's guess...). Minion will be making it debu ....
Gathering winter fuu-uuu-ell... Source: Beer and Buckjumpers | 13 Jan 2015 | 7:54 am UTC
Although it's been quite mild over the last couple of days, the Christmas period had seen us lighting the fire in our living room almost every evening.  That usually meant that there was a constant round each morning of restocking the coal scuttle and firewood basket.So after a bacon sarnie, I  ....
14xx part 3 Source: Ullypug's tales from the tinking table | 7 Jan 2015 | 9:34 pm UTC
Just a brief update, though it doesn't quite convey the journey since the last update. Over the festive period I made progress with the engine. I had decided for ease to finish the loco in unlined black so duly primed it no bother using sprayed enamel. However when I applied my usual satin black fro ....
