COLORADO HERITAGE RAILROAD  On30



As the model is of a Heritage Railroad, it will have 'set scenes' as above. Think Beamish, Blists Hill, Ironbridge, etc. This is a scene of an actual theft and recovery of a racing saloon, somewhere in the USA.




Above: Forks Trestle which is now in my shed...



My "Tramway de Gare Tigre", which has undergone considerable change from being exhibited at Crewe Heritage Centre and now just has the factory left, with new shop buildings ready to be positioned where the workshops were. This will become my 09 layout, Hockenhull Platts or Poppit Sands...



"Wetlands"  Most of this has been cleared for new tracklaying (bit like the Teifi Valley Railway)..



One of the later pictures of Calle de la "Coronacion" at an exhibition, with the other CRM modules, before that background was replaced.

Some of my Locomotives:

Below: Bachmann Mogul Camelbck conversion using a Backwoods Miniatures kit, built by Brian Mosby of Mozzers Models.





This is a conversion of an 00 gauge Bachmann 2-8-0 WD with parts from a Bachmann On30 Mogul, fitted with an oil tender. Built and photographed by Brian Mosby.



Repainted Bachmann mogul, with a wood burner tender with added crew. Modified and photographed by Brian Mosby.


Above: I have another Bachmann Mogul, which will be repainted in either green or maroon livery and another which will either be converted to an 0-6-0 like the one below or a 2-6-0T tank locomotive with side tanks. Both models built and photographed by Brian Mosby.



I'll take some photos of my diesel trams, railcars and other locomotives and rolling stock when a get a moment or two!

Another of my O9 stock - an Ebay win of a railcar on a Kato chassis - a superb runner...

UPDATE: 25th NOVEMBER 2017


I intend to use the "Calle de La Coronacion" module and extend it with another four foot by eighteen inch board, so I can run trains from a fiddle yard into the station and run the loco around and back out to the fiddle yard. 

To get this to work, a right hand point will be fitted just after it runs into the old board and the track will be laid along the road and through the factory and out the other side onto the new board, where it will join the 'main' line by a new left hand point (and possibly another right hand point which will give me a siding to shunt about with. The fiddle yard is ready as is the board and the track for it.

My 09 stock will be used on some three and four foot by one foot boards which were going to be used for Hockenhull Platts, which may me reinvented as a Poppit Sands?
