The Modeller

My 1960s Cronton Colliery Sheds Micro Layout. Built on a 2ft by 1ft board including the fiddle yard. It is based on a fictitious extension of the Cronton Colliery railway network that would be able to host mainline locos from the exchange sidings.

An item of railway rarity, the rail mounted Land Rover, a fantastic bit of kit from Oxford diecast, could do with motorising though.

Nostalgic shot of the colliery J94 as the pug lurks in the background. The figure in the foreground is actually a 3D print of myself!

Diesel double trouble. Class 20 and 25 both idle in the yard whilst their trains are shunted together.

The colliery pug waits to be coaled inbetween dutties. Bet the crew have bunked of for a cuppa!
