About Me

My photo
When i left school back then i was lucky enough to enroll on an engineering apprenticeship. I think this lead me in good stead. I was always one of those children that pulled things apart but actually put them back together again. My first engine given to me at the age of Seven, a Triang Princess Elizabeth. The rest as they say is History. Later in life i got back in to Model Railways and started building Pine Road. This could lead anywhere so i hope you enjoy my Blog.

New Road, a canopy

The Canopy on New Road had to match the station building, something Art-deco then.
Looking through various books to get an idea. I found one with a reverse ridge with a gully down the middle.
5 uprights were needed to support the roof. Making 1 was fine but trying to make 5 all the same was beyond me, lots of curves and angles.
A friend of mine suggested contacting York Modelmaking, this was duly done.
I was asked to produce a drawing for Julie to use.
About 2 weeks later they arrived in the post. Made from white acrylic, I'm a happy bunny.
Thank you Julie at York Model Making.
