A Pictorial Update of New Things

Here we present a simple pictorial update, to demonstrate that progress is being made. We begin with more of those wonderful signal boxes by Phil:
Penrith Yard North
Penrith Number 2
Penrith Number 1
Eden Valley Junction. Where the Eden Valley line from Kirkby Stephen joins the WCML
Another view of Eden Valley Junction box, looking north
Tebay Number 1
Scout Green box on the WCML between Tebay and Penrith
Thrimby Grange on the WCML
Sandy Bank on the Stainmore line between Kirkby Stephen and Tebay
 Phil has also started working on enamel and other signage for the line. Any suggestions for enamel adverts? Please post in the comments below:

And station nameboards:
Appleby East is about halfway along the Eden Valley branch, where there is a junction with the Settle and Carlisle line
Ravenstonedale - On a stretch of line many considered to be one of the finest in the country, particularly between here and Smardale!
Looking west towards Tebay at Ravenstonedale
Musgrave is the first station on the north/west bound Eden Valley
Clifton Moor - The last station on the Eden Valley before the junction for the WCML
 No steam-age route is complete without telegraph poles and wires spanning the entire network of lines. I'm pleased to report that Phil has been working  on that very thing! There are already some good examples of telegraph poles and wires on various routes, but I think these are the best yet!

The very last steam service crossed Stainmore in 1962. We can wait to return steam to this wonderful railway!!

More Soon..........................


  1. What about some Army,Navy and Air force recruitment Poster?Some Car sales posters?

  2. Great work Phil. There are many enamel sign designs on the net but most of these are too old to feature on a BR era route. Advertisers had to pay site rent for the signs and I imagine would have updated them regularly to maintain a contemporary style, so old signs would not have lingered. Enamel signs seem to have disappeared rapidly from the railways during the 1950s in favour of posters.
