Hornby have today added 14 new items to their range as a mid year range announcement. The full list of items can be found here. 

From a Southern perspective this includes a couple of new livery’s to their newly tooled ex LBSC A1/A1x 0-6-0t ‘Terrier’ range.

R3811 /R3811x (DCC fitted) LB&SCR A1 class ‘Terrier’ – Introduced by the London Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) in 1876, No. 48 Leadenhall was allocated first to New Cross then in the mid 1880s the  locomotive was transferred to Eastbourne for the Hailsham and Lewes local services. before being transferred to Portsmouth in 1890, 48 Leadenhall worked the East Southsea and Hayling Island branch line services until August 1901.

R3812 / R3812x (DCC fitted) SR A1X Class ‘Terrier’ W10 ‘Cowes’ – Numbered as 69 and named Peckham, the Isle of Wight Central Railway (IWCR) took possession of the locomotive on 18 April 1900 and it retained this combination until 1925, two years after being taken into Southern Railway stock. Repainted into Maunsell Green and given the running number of W10, in October 1928 the locomotive received the name ‘Cowes’ which it retained until May 1936 when it was recalled to the mainland to be stored.

 

Delivery of these new versions is expected to be January 2020.

Although my usual modelling genre, as regular readers will know, is the Southern Railway between 1946 and 1949, however due to Canute Road Quay having very few visual references to either period or location (yes there are a couple, but hey…) it allows me to change the location and era with different rolling stock, vehicles and details.

No. 7128 in LNER Wartime livery with full skirts sits on the shed.

I have deliberately left the vehicles and other details such as crates, sack stacks and oil drums etc. loose, this enables them to be both be moved around, to give some variety in photographs, and or replaced with other items to different periods.

No. 7126 in LNER lined livery with no skirts

This is the first in a series of ‘Making Quay Changes’ posts with the Canute Road Quay being transported to either a different location or era or both.  In this case we have stayed in my usual era but moved Eastwards, to perhaps the docks of Ipswich or Yarmouth  utilising the lovely Model Rail magazine limited edition ex Great Eastern Railway J70 class 0-6-0 tram engines (or Toby’s if you prefer).

The pair together

The J70 share the quayside with a Peckett W4 class and an Andrew Barclay, modified Hornby and Hattons models.

The locomotives were manufactured on behalf of Model Rail Magazine by Rapido of Canada.

The pair again at the Quay

They are such delightful models featuring: a coreless motor, options of fully skirted or unskirted, open or closed window and front doors and the distinctive cow catchers; I could not resist the urge to purchase a couple!

The two J70 models I have represent a version still with full side skirts and one with the skirts partially removed.

No. 7128 simmers in front of the quayside offices

I have also varied the front door and window positions, fitted crew members and lightly weathered.
I feel the weathering really brings out the details of these models and tones down, my possible only criticism of the model, their out of box very bright orange woodwork finish.

No. 7128 shares the quayside with a Peckett W4 class (modified Hornby)

This weathering has followed my usual practice of layers colours including: brake dust, dirt, rust, soot etc. via different processes of: drybrushing, washes and airbrushing along with cleaning some areas with a cotton bud but leaving the dirt in the crevasses and corners.

No. 7126 meets an Andrew Barclay (Modified Hattons model)

The J70 class designed by James Holden was a more powerful version of the earlier Y4 0-4-0 tram engine designed by T.W.  Warsdell and 12 were built at the Great Eastern Railway’s Stratford Works between 1903 and 1921.

A last view of Nos. 7126 and 7128 together

During their lifetime, the last being withdrawn in  1955, the J70 class were used at: Ipswich Docks, Yarmouth, Colchester Hythe Docks and of course on the iconic Wisbech and Upwell Tramway for which they gained their most fame.

I hope you enjoy this slightly different post, I apologise to the die hard Southern Railway / Region readers for this post being of Great Eastern / LNER content, but worry not, I will make amends in the next ‘Making Quay Changes’ post with Canute Road Quay back at its spiritual home of Southampton Docks but a different era, but what will it be…?

Sound fitted DCC controlled locomotives are being more and more popular, effective and cheaper, especially since the introduction of cheaper sounds chips such as the Hornby TTS range of sound fitted decoders. However whilst the sounds of the locomotive themselves are achieved with a few add on sounds such as doors closing and guards whistles, what such sound fitted locomotives emphasise is that the ambient sounds of people, machinery, birds, water or waves (where appropriate) and sounds of the rolling stock, buffering wagons and flange squealing that is missing.

For Canute Road Quay I wanted to provide an overall immersive experience for the viewer at an exhibition by providing a mix of sounds to include not just steam locomotive sounds but those of the rolling stock and other typical background sounds that you would hear at a working quayside. I also wanted it to be reasonable subtle.

Hornby have recently partially addressed these requirements with their R6925TTS sound fitted vent van this has 29 separate sounds that covers some of the above ambient sounds including steam, locos, wagons being shunted, flange squeal, birds etc.  However, this would not be suitable for use on Canute Road Quay for a number of reasons; firstly it requires DCC control requiring each sound to be activated, up to three at any time, using function buttons rather than just playing on a loop, , secondly it does not feature all the sounds I require such as Herring Gulls etc. and finally would really require the wagon, which is not quote the correct period for my usual 1946 to 1949 period to be located on the layout all the time which would hamper operation a bit.

I therefore having spent some time looking around for suitable sound clips to make my own file, came across a friendly and efficient small supplier called BigTrainSound.co.uk The guys here can supply a number of off the shelf sound files ranging from platform announcements to urban sounds from different eras and weather conditions including thunderstorms. Another service they provide is to produce bespoke soundscapes of either 30 or 50 minute duration tailored to meet a clients needs.
Paul at BigTrainSound.co.uk quickly gained an understanding of my requirements from looking at pictures of Canute Road Quay, reading this blog and from my own suggested required sounds. Within a couple of days I had a schedule of proposed sounds and timings for approval followed by a provisional sound file. By the end of the week I had the agreed completed 50 minute soundscape file, very efficient service!
The ambient soundscape file is built upon a base layer of breezes and lapping water sounds then with multiple other sounds layered over it at different times including the following: Herring Gulls, steam locomotives shunting at various times (actual sounds recorded of shunting at Bristol and Goole docks), wagon wheel squeals, ships hooters, distant fog horn, truck arriving and departing, conversations, unloading wagons, dogs barking etc.
Last month saw the first exhibition with the sounds being played via a Bluetooth speaker simply clamped underneath the layout. I was certainly very pleased with the overall effect and even though the locomotive / shunting sounds are not synced with the actual movements during operation, it became a bit of a fun challenge to try and get the movements to coincide, which we managed quite often so much so viewers often commented that they thought the locos were DCC Sound fitted!

The video clips above give a brief idea of some of the sounds. I can totally recommended the great service by Paul and his team at BigTrainSound.co.uk as a very satisfied client.

If you want to see Canute Road Quay and experience the ambient sound effect, Canute Road Quay is making an appearance this coming Saturday 23rd February at the excellent little RisEx exhibition organised by the Princes Risborough and District Model Railway Club.
The show is being held at the ,Community Centre, Wades Park, Stratton Road, Princes Risborough, Bucks, HP27 9AX and is is open between 10.00 and 17.00

Canute Road Quay at RisEx will also be in the company of my friend Simon Paley’s Norwood Road Layout, set in the West Croydon area circa 2000‘s along with eight other layouts. Some say… the show is worth a visit for the cakes alone…

If you planning to pop along to RisEx, please make sure you to say hello.

PS. if you are wondering about the title its a sneaky reference to one of my favourite bands, their 17th album in fact..

Hornby have today announced their full range for 2019.  The highlights  from a Southern Railway perspective being the brand new tooled ex LBSC A1 / A1x 0-6-0T “Terrier” (in direct competition with the announcement earlier this year of the Rails of Sheffied / Dapol version) Bulleid 1945 built 59ft ‘shortie’ coaching stock, Diagrams 2316 and 2121, and the ex LSWR Warners 20T / SR 24T Diagram 1543 brake vans.

The Hornby continental Arnold range in 1/148 N Gauge also sees a welcome reintroduction of the 5BEL Brighton Belle Set, in the 1934 livery as set 2053.

The aim of this post is to round-up the announcements that are of a Southern Railway / Southern Region interest and new for 2019, I have purposely not relisted those item previous announced and or still to actually appear. An indication of the planned release date via the Quarter system (eg [Q2] is also provided.

Locomotives

In a surprise move the range includes new tooling for the ex LBSC A1/A1x Terrier, the tooling incorporates many of the changes within this class of locomotives in service and preservation. There are also of course a number of new liveries of existing tooling:

  • R3649 – BR 4-6-2 ‘Ellerman Lines’ ‘35029’ Merchant Navy (Original Air Smoothed) – BR Brunswick Green, early crest representing the condition she ran in between July 1952 and June 1959 when she was rebuilt. [Q4]
  • R3716 – BR 4-6-2 ‘Holland America Line’ ‘35022’ Merchant Navy (Original Air Smoothed) – BR Brunswick Green, early crest representing the condition she ran in between February 1952 and June 1959 when she was rebuilt. [Q3]
  • R3717 – SR 4-6-2 ‘Aberdeen Commonwealth’ ‘21C7’ Merchant Navy (Original Air Smoothed) – SR Wartime Black, original ‘widows peak- front end with no smoke deflectors representing the condition she ran in between July 1942 and August 1944 when she gained short flared smoke deflectors and the standard style hood over the smokebox [Q3]

  • R3781 K&ESR 0-6-0T No. 5 A1 Class “Terrier” “Rolvenden” in K&ESR Blue [Q1]

Coaches

Being introduced from brand new tooling for 2019 are the Bulleid 59ft ‘Shortie’ coaches. These were part of 18 three coach sets, formed Diagram 2121 BTK – Diagram 2316 CK –  Diagram 2121 BTK, with set numbers 963 to 980. They were ordered in 1944 utilising Maunsell 59ft underframes that were originally constructed in 1940, then stored, when further construction was suspended by the war. Whilst similar in layout to previous Maunsell coaches, with doors for each compartment on the non corridor side (known as Multi-door) , externally they featured the new Bulleid bodyside profile. Bulleid new profile had already been introduced on the 4 Sub EMU set 4101 in 1941 with the body having a continuous curve from floor to cantrail and the characteristic lozenge shaped toplights over the droplight windows.
Hornby are releasing versions to correctly form Sets 965 and 973 in SR ‘Malachite’ green and Sets 968 and 972 in BR(s) green. The BR(s) versions include revised tooling to include: recessed / flush door toplights, later guards door handrail styles, rainstrips, end steps and the reinforcing beading added along the sides at waist the line.
[update 07/01/19] Additional livery historical information kindly supplied by Colin Watts:
Set 965 (Malachite) to Crimson and Cream (CLC)  March 1956 then to BR(S) Green  June 1958
Set 968 (Malachite) to CLC December 1953 then to BR(S) Green July 1957
Set 972 BR(S) Green from CLC February 1958
Set 973 BR(s) Green from CLC November 1957
These are a logical extension to the Hornby range who already have the details of the underframe and SR standard 8ft bogies from their excellent Maunsell coach range.

Wagons

The 2019 range also sees new tooling for the LSWR/SR/BR(s) Warner 20 ton goods brake van. 75 of this type of van were built between 1915 and 1921.

My kit built U Class, could this be a candidate for an RTR?

Once again the the SR U class 2-6-0 tops the SR/BR(s) list and was this year 4th overall (it topped the SR list and was second overall at the last poll in 2016), the GWR Manor 4-6-0 was 1st this year.  The second place SR loco was the humble Q Class 0-6-0 ,  which as it was in 2016, was 11th overall this year. The top 10 for SR/BR(s) were as follows (overall position / number of votes):

  • U Class 2-6-0 (4/271)
  • Q Class 0-6-0 (11/ 315)

The annual Wishlist Poll is back for 2018 following a break in 2017 and has started today. The purpose of The Poll is to provide an easy way for modellers and collectors to tell the major manufacturers and commissioners of ready-to-run railway models what they would like to see made from new tooling (excluding models announced, tooled or made since 2000). It should be noted that the poll is only being tun for 00 gauge models this year.

There are plenty of Southern Railway / Southern Region related items to vote for, hint hint. A lot has happened since the 2016 poll results were published. The breakdown of items announced so far including those SR related, and sometimes even delivered by now, is as below:

  • 10 From the Top 50 (inc. the Lord Nelson, Terrier, P Class & Maunsell RF)
  • 17 From the High Polling segment (inc. 10¼” vent Bulleid coaches)
  • 9 From the Middle Polling segment (inc. the E1, Class 410/412 & 15” vent Bulleid coaches)
  • 3 From the Low Polling segment (nothing SR)

There are 20 categories covering steam locos of the Big Four and BR; Diesel & Electric Locomotives; DMUs; EMUs; Coaches; Non-passenger-carrying Coaching Stock; Freight Stock; General Service Stock; Standard Gauge Industrial Locomotives; and finally London Underground.

So what’s new or different for SR modellers in 2018? You will find all your usual favourite / possibly wanted locos still listed; such the U, Z, Bulleid Leader etc., but the following are included within the poll for the first time this year:

  • LBSCR Marsh J1 & J2 Class 4-6-2T
  • LSWR Adams A12 ‘Jubilee’ 0-4-2
  • LSWR Drummond K10 4-4-0
  • LSWR Drummond L11 4-4-0
  • LSWR Drummond T14 ‘Paddlebox’ 4-6-0
  • Shunters 15201-15203 (SR1-SR3)

The poll has ‘split’ the previously combined SECR D & E classes thus:

  • 4-4-0 SECR D (31057-31750 with gaps)
  • 4-4-0 SECR E (31036-31587 with gaps)

The following are new in the EMU category:

The following are new in the SR Coaches category:

  • LBSCR 4-wheel Stock
  • LBSCR Elliptical (‘Balloon’) Stock
  • SECR/SR – Pull & Push No.660

Last year Bachmann announced its Bulleid range, but this has left the following gaps, which are now listed individually:

  • (SR) Bulleid 10¼in Vent Corridor Brake Composite ‘Loose’ (Diag.2406 BCK of 1948)
  • (SR) Bulleid 15in Vent Corridor First (Diag.2552 of 1949)
  • (SR) Bulleid 15in Vent Open Third (Diag.2017 of 1950)

The following are new in the Non-passenger-carrying Coaching Stock category (NPCCS):

And finally, within London Underground (inc IoW stock) category, you will find:

  • Underground 1940 Waterloo & City Stock (later Class 487) (inc Match Trucks for transport to BR Works)

The poll will be running from today, 15th October, until the 3rd November. Full details can be found here on RMweb.

Lets hope that by voting Southern we can continue the great expansion in Southern related models being produced in the future!
