More Baseboards and A Peek at Benfieldside

I managed to get most of another day done on the baseboards at Tim & Julian’s workshops.  The bulk of the first four are now done; although the decks are still to be put on these.  A slightly fuzzy picture to show the progress is below:

In addition to this, I had a look at their layout Benfieldside.  As noted in past posts, they have recently acquired this from John James, who was the custodian of it for some years.  Its original building was John Wright.

A great layout; I think anyway!

I have managed to restore the first two signals – well entirely rebuild one!  I will post some pictures in the next few days with a bit of luck.

  1. Hi,

    Well written blog ‘thank you’ for taking the time to put it together.

    Nice to see the superb layout of Benfieldside again, it was when on the exhibition circuit, always good, and naturally, there was always a crowd around it..

    • Thanks Peter.

      The intention will be that Benfieldside will be out on the circuit again in the future. There may be an early “under restoration” exhibition late this year. I’ll announce it if this does occur.
