New Gas Works diorama under way.

Just made a start on a new diorama for issue 223 of Model Rail magazine. Depicting a fictional gas works, with railway access via a suburban street (it did happen!), I spent a while setting out the various buildings in such a way as to create some attractive photographic opportunities.It won't be a working railway, which is a shame, as it's starting to look like it would be great fun!

Next job - sink the rails into the asphalt...


  1. Indeed they did- see Huddersfield. Railway Bylines back numbers contain some lovely images of a Barclay 040st under trolleybus wires and low bridges.
