Just starting to appear on the exhibition circuit, Deadmans Lane portrays the former British Rail Research and Technical Centre (RTC) that is now owned by Loram, that maintains the yellow test vehicles of Network Rail

Most folks build stock to suit a layout. Mine was the other way round after building a significant number of vehicles that have seen use on previous layouts "Blackmill" and "New Bryford".

At the moment, DL is in "warm store" and awaiting some work to be don ahead of an upcoming magazine photo shoot

Next planned show for DL is at Blackburn in November with plenty of others to follow.

Hopefully, I'll post a few more pics as time allows.

Cheers,
Mick

Lovely to see you again, look forward to seeing the new layout, I see there is still the mellow yellow leanings 🙂 Knowing how you like to get extra detail in I expect it to be a great thread to follow 🙂

Oops - not quite certain what's going on above - they should have been similar sizes - will try resizing/editing.

Edit: Now they're both "thumbnails" - will keep trying

Hi Newbrydford, the 'handle' is very familiar to me but I must have missed your modelling thread in another place. I have been out of touch with the mainline rail system for many years so I assume the Large Logo '37 is in a heritage livery seeing as Colas Rail livery is also present.  Jaz has mentioned 'your specials', so I am guessing the coaches are modified RTR. Overall, the layout and stock has a very tidy appearance, which I like.

Hi Larry,
Thanks for the compliment.
"newbryford" has been a long time moniker of mine - after my layout "New Bryford" that is about to retire after 25 years plus since it first appeared on the exhibition circuit. (NEC in 2 weeks and Glasgow in Februaray 2019 will be it's last shows)
Most of the stock on DL is detailed on a thread on RMweb, but I will be adding the projects here as time allows.

The current scene is quite colourful with heritage liveries making a comeback on frontline use. There is a Class 91 about to be unveiled in Inter City Swallow colours for example.
Colas' normal fare is orange/yellow/black, but they have large logo 37025 and green 37057 [*] to call on, as well as one or two others such as Europhoenix 37608 and odd ball 37610 (full yellow ends, but small BR logo - just like a couple of the early Eastfield repaints)
[*] 37057 was not playing nicely, so was on the naughty step (i.e. remained in the stock box) this weekend.

All of the yellow stock is modified RTR is some way - from a simple window fill, to much more serious cut 'n' shut. As above, I will show a few examples when I can.
In the meantime - here's a few pics of DL taken by Jack Taylor last weekend.

37516 with a suitable headboard for yesterday, leads 37706 on railtour duties (apologies for the visible blu-tak!)

37025 is about to depart with a test train, whilst resident shunter 08417 waits for the next move.

50007 is borrowed in to move a couple of translator coaches. 73138 and 97304 make up an English Electric extravaganza

Thanks for posting the pictures Mick. Plenty of attention to detail in the background. I have seen a West Coast 37 but none of the other liveries in the flesh. The 153 Unit looks quite fetching. They have certainly carries some liveries in their time. I look forward to reading your project threads.

Mick looking good one small point which a friend of mine pointed out when we saw the layout at DEMU is that the pallets need to be turned around 90deg otherwise you cant pick them up with a forklift. As part of his job he uses a forklilft

I shall reprimand the man who stuck them there (it wasn't me....)
And hopefully, he didn't use too much glue...…….
