    Today we have sent the OO scale model of Leek Station signal box to the printers thanks to a purchase of the prototype model. Normally I keep the prototypes, but they have been shares with a friend who I’ve known for 24 years. I know he will look after them and enjoy them.

    Now we just await delivery and some photos.

    The internals will follow at a later time, probably with the 7mm version when we have completed the final adjustments.

    thanks on this project must go to the following- not all are forum members (or even modellers)

    @York Paul, @Fruit, Nick Allsop and Graham Serrell for his memories in there as a child. Small projects like this can’t be done on their own, and without support like these guys have given me on messenger etc would not have been anywhere near as accurate as it will hopefully be. It makes me smile when I think what small task I have had compared to Paul doing Leek and another group I’ve been speaking to who are recreating Nottingham Victoria in 3D. As they said, you may have plans, but folks memories will always dispute someone else’s, won’t it Ted? Eh.

    And so the block shelf section of the project draws near to completion.

    this was how it was..

    now with distant and home repeaters for levers 1&2

    and the same for 37, 39 and 40 as non of these could be seen by the signalman (some due bridges and 40 as from what I can see, was the other end of a tunnel!)

    The box contains the emergency key to the locking room under the box. The morse telephone, and the switch out box.

    a full view.

    then, it struck me.. I needed another lamp failure annunciator which is the black box to the left..

    Although, only 5 of the 6 lamps would actually be monitored here.

    Now we’re back to internals.
    Have a good un!

    Apologies, there was an error on the last update. The signal arm repeaters (due to not being in view) should be on signals 1(distant) & 3 Home, not one and two as I posted. 419F775C-AF22-43F2-96A8-66757C1E3394.jpeg

    Quite pleased with the outcome.
