The local auto train stands waiting to depart to Hain whilst a local stopping train awaits the signal to leave. The driver has yet to enter the driving compartment, but the guard has already taken the lamp from the front of the loco and placed in the centre. This was a special GWR lamp code specifically for 'Auto trains'.
Here the 'up line' descends into the tunnel (and the hidden storage loops) The rising single track branch line can be seen on the left. Note the 20 mph speed restriction on the (sharpish) curve on the branch.
The outskirts of Westrym, showing the blending in of 3D forground with 2D backscene. The trees are of my own making. The vehicles are mostly from the 'Oxford' range and are correct for the period modelled.
The fireman has his shovel ready for the loco to back up. The next train arriving on the down main has been signalled on to the branch platform (3) as it will the depart to Hain on the branch - which is immediately in front of the signal.
The excellent Bachmann 'Warship' in my favourite early BR livery at the head of an 'up' fully loaded china clay train preparing to pull out from the 'up' goods loop onto the main line which immediatley plunges into the blackness of Westrym tunnel The backscene is very effective.
