4mm South Gallions.

  1. I am afraid I have totally tinkered with the railway history south of the London River. S.G. Represents a former S.E.R. branch running from North Kent East Junction to its terminus at South Gallions, near Deptford.
    The model I hope will show the terminus circa 1958, although I have allowed myself to run some vacuum braked suburban stock.

    Hello @Eddie Handyside

    Nice. Always good to see a bit of yellow brick in these parts. I look forward to more glacial progression - as long as climate change doesn't negate progress :)

    Nice to see SR green electrics in a yellow brick setting. :thumbs:

    Can't help thinking your bridge needs a sign like this.... cobbled up from a photo found on a railwayania auction web site.

  13. Greasy Spoon, Cath's Caff I was going to put a garage there, but prefer the 'Caff' The original 13.JPG 14.JPG was Kath's Kaff in Whitley Bay, which as I recall did an excellent Welsh Rarebit

    Very atmospheric and those yellow (Wrotham?) London bricks are perfect. The post war decay is also nicely portrayed, reminds me of looking out of the bus at Birmingham bomb sites with rose bay willow herb in full flower.
