The Midnight-Express is held at 13th Street Yard ...

... while the cops on the R78 bridge finish their carb. break.





The Supers. ol' pickup comes in handy around 13th Street.

Hi John :wave:



Well I have to confess, it isn't exactly 'mine'.


Most of my original Tri-ang stuff, from when I was in short trousers ...

... is about as shot to pieces, as your Davy Crockett coach ! :shocked:


I actually bought the 7005 on eBay & had to look pretty hard to find one like that !! :cool:

13th Street Yard is my 'B' project, whilst I plow most of my modeling time at present, into my 1:35n2.

But finding bits & pieces for it & gathering ideas, is obviously ongoing.



I have this scenic idea for 13th Street Yard, which I can see in my mind ...

... but is tricky for me to draw out at this stage.

I'm thinking that 13th Street Yards scenery, is basically ALL bridges & electricity pylons.

I have looked at a couple of nice looking HO 'warehouse' type card-kits for possible 'flats' as well.

So I'm going to add a bit of this & that here, about whatever is going towards my ideas for it.



I've more or less already decided to use as many original 'Tri-ang Railways' products as possible.

13th Street Yard is intended to be a 'Tri-ang Transcontinental' layout.





Lines Bros. who made 'Tri-ang Railways' products, also had another brand called 'Model Land'.

I was lucky enough to find some fairly scarce 'Model Land' RML-61 pylons recently, which I like very much ! :)

An original unmade kit from way back, sometime in the '50s/'60s, not sure exactly when they first came out.

Lines Brothers 'Model Land' construction kits.





An RML-61 pylon can be seen at the top in the middle.



:cool:

The parts for the vintage pylon kits as they come.

Could be useful in scales other than HO perhaps as well. L:





The main pylon sections.

What is it ? ... 3 pylons per box ! ... So 6 of these sprues are included in each kit.





Cross pieces, insulator rigging & insulators.

3 of these sprues in each of the old-school 'Model-Land' packages.



:)

Si

Some interesting structures in the TRIANG Model Land line,
apparently they were sold on this side of the pond. Have never come across the line before (live and learn)

Ken Eh!
