Polbrook Gurney Colliery Halt

Polbrook Gurney Colliery Halt is Polbrock as serialised in Model Rail last year, but now in the process of being extended width and lengthwise to incorporate a Bristol coalfield inspired colliery from my moribund Mendip Colliery project.

The layout here looks more complete than it really is, the photo here being the result of carefully lining up  colliery buildings behind Polbrock, which earlier today was extracted from its diorama case.

The sky I admit has been Photoshopped in, but is very similar to what I have planned to go behind this somewhat bigger metamorphosis of Polbrock. The new backscene will be around 18 inches high to allow photos like this without having to resort to filling in the sky to cover up the ceiling or exhibition hall with a photo-editing programme.

Anyway, enough rambling, I need to pull my thumb out to get it finished in time - First outing is RAILEX end of May!


  1. Mother says they never had skies like that in Bristol in them days...suggest you make a change or two or she won't be bringing you any of her special flan (Rhubarb and Anchovies) to Railex!!

  2. That's an impressive erection in the centre of the shot!
