Thornycroft Photo Series #2



The second in a new series of photographs showing the Thornycroft sidings...

Here we see the Alton passenger train going past the Thornycroft factory heading under Worting Bridge to it's next stop at Cliddesden Station. In the foreground outside the chassis store, as a deterrent to ward of German enemies during WW2, is the J-Class lorry fitted with anti air-craft missile launcher. It was left rotting on the embankment until given away in the 1960's to an enthusiast.

Everything you see in the photo, apart from the sky, is all "real" and part of the model railway, scratch built and scaled in n-gauge; (approx)2mm:1ft.

Shot with a Canon EOS 550D.

Thornycroft Photo Series #1

Here we see a stormy day with a break in the cloud to allow the sun to sine for a few minutes. In the yard the lowmacs are loaded with some PB class lorry chassis, ready to go.
