TANE SP4/105766 & Trainz 2022 119451
5th May, 2024
This release: Great Southern & Western Railway  Loco number 90 and loco-and-trailer number 92 are now available here. These are both for the Irish standard gauge of 5ft 3in. No.90 is preserved at the Downpatrick & County Down Railway. Liverpool Overhead Railway Several models made some time ago but never released but now available. They are mainly of L&NWR structures in Liverpool associated with the LOR: coal dock line bridge and cranes; Riverside station building; Waterloo goods depot; plus a lifting bridge for the LOR viaduct line itself. San Marino Railway I made a model of the main station at San Marino some years back but failed to upload it so it’s now available. Sadly, the original structure was demolished and replaced by a car park but now you will be able to recreate the original terminus of this remarkable (and partly preserved!) electric line. Please note: all my new models are for TANE SP4 and above. In the future I will only support my models for Trainz 2022 and not earlier versions. Links are to zip files containing the cdp files.  Usual apologies for any broken links or missing material, let me know and I’ll correct them. Steve
Glenariff: Mines, Railway & Pier The Rise and Fall of a Victorian Enterprise In the later 19th century a company sought to extract ironstone from Glenariff, one of the beautiful Glens of Antrim in north-east Ireland. Unusually, its working and interaction with local people was recorded in correspondence between its secretary in London and its works manager on site. Here are its trials and tribulations as it built a 3ft narrow-gauge railway and pier, dug mines, and endured struggles with litigious neighbours, recalcitrant sheep and the wild  weather of the Irish Sea coast. The company only lasted 15 years, but was a microcosm of many Victorian enterprises now lost to history. Available from Amazon Kindle £4.99, and as an Amazon print-to-order edition published 10th August, 2019

Current projects: Beckton Gas Works, London The octagonal roundhouse and meter house are finished, along with items to recreate the riverside loading pier at which the colliers from Newcastle tied up. I’ve also made a different colour scheme for the gasholder. All are now to be tested. Rolling stock to follow. Early Victorian passenger set - If anyone can offer help I’d be very grateful. Status: on hold, no release date.

Wanted for future projects I’m always on the lookout for scale plans, diagrams, drawings and photographs of railway-related items from the 1830s to 1930s, and especially: Cranes: 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, especially dockyard and fixed cranes. Factories/Industries: private sidings, goods depots, goods platforms; especially those serving collieries, stone yards and similar commercial enterprises.
