Another goodsyard, this time a model ...
« on: Jul 11 2020 23:20 »
This is a model I've seen before and love it.  That's a short GNR 5-plank and I'm not sure what the industrial saddle tank is.  True it looks a bit squashed, the building at the back looks a bit low relief and the man on the left is a bit wooden, but its a very nice model.





But all is not what it seems.  Clue: any suggestions what scale it is?

I have some close-up photos of that GNR wagon Mike - but I'll let others guess the answer to your question.   :)

Might one call it a 'life-like' cameo?  ;)

The location of Wallis and Steevens and its proximity to Ian's abode gave me the clue...

Yes it is the superb Milestones Museum in Basingstoke.  A wonderful place to spend half a day.

I agree that the models themselves look very realistic and life-like.  When looking at the "Bigger picture" rather than the detail, I do wonder how the loco and wagon got there and what the tram is running on!
