This is the second in a series of ‘Making Quay Changes’ posts with the Canute Road Quay being transported to either a different location or era or both.  After my Making Quay Changes #1 post moving the scene Eastwards, perhaps to 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

Two USA tanks 30064 and 30067

Although my usual modelling genre, as regular readers will know, is the Southern Railway between 1946 and 1949, however due to Canute Road Quay has very few visual references to either period or location (yes there are a couple, but hey…)

USA tank 30067 continues to shunt

It therefore allows me to change the location and era with different rolling stock, vehicles and details.

USA tank 30067 is joined by B4 30089

In this case we have stayed at Canute Road Quay‘s intended setting but time travelled to a time when wartime rationing had at long last come to an end by moving into the British Railways late 1950s era.

30089 joins 30067 on shed between turns

Having deliberately when building Canute Road Quay left the vehicles and other details such as crates, sack stacks and oil drums etc. loose, it enables them to be both be moved around, to give some variety in photographs, and or replaced with other items to different periods.

USA tank 30064 adds a splash of colour to proceedings

In this case we still see the excellent Model Rail Magazine USA tanks, produced by Bachmann,  still handling the mainstay of the work, with a slight reference to the past due to a visiting ex LSWR Adams B4, by Dapol, all British Railways liveries.

The change in period also sees slightly more modern wagons and vehicles appearing, along a few older ones that have managed to get a repaint to the latest British Railways livery.

30067 catches the light on the quayside

At least, we are, unlike my first ‘Making Quay Changes’ post back to the Southern albeit Southern Region.

I hope you enjoy this post, the next ‘Making Quay Changes’ post with Canute Road Quay will also still be set in its usual location but again time travelling, but what era will it be…?
