This is my shunting plank Lockoford Yard, it is quite an old photo and not taken from a very good angle I will try and take some better pic`s soon.

Looks great to me Pete. Who's are the buildings? Are they scratch built as I don't recognise them. Look pretty unique.

Cheers

Toto

This is the yard end with factory in low relief, I have added some more detail since this photo was taken.


The oil storage tanks for the factory, a Ratio kit with added detail from a Knightwing pipe work set plus scratch built raised gangwalk and steps.


A poor photo of the Ratio station garage kit, the left bay covers a Peco surface mounted point motor.

I will post some more pics soon now I have sussed the set up.
Cheers, Pete.

Hi Pete. You're not quite as old as me, but looking at Lockoford Yard, can you remember the "Steelbreaking and Dismantling Company" on Lockoford Lane with the old steam crane hammering away 6 days a week? Used to pass it on my way to school every weekday!

Hi Kieth, yes I was probably in my very early teens or a bit younger but I was down there with a couple of mates and they were breaking up some ex London underground coaches with explosives of all things absolutely scared the doo doo out of me- I kept well away after that :eek:.


Pete.

See thats what a bonus payment can do - you take a normal sane minded person, then pay them by the results rather by the hour - brains left at the factory gate :facepalm:   :avatar:

You should see the same effect on a fork lift driver

Hi Pete.
Yes, I remember those London Underground trains being broken up with explosives too. Surprised they got away with that right alongside the Midland Main Line!!!!

Hi Pete,

Reading both Keith's and your own posts, it sounds that Lockoford Yard, or Lockoford Lane is a real place..? A scrap yard ?
Oh, I can't understand why the old gas torches were not used to cut up the old London underground coaches... :whatever: Although watching them being blown apart with explosives would have been a great sight !

Cheers, Gary.
