Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

Awning chasm

Leave a comment

Continuing my occasional look at reality being stranger than fiction… While on the train the other day, I noticed the awning at Newark Northgate. I presume  it was originally the same height all the way round and was modified as part of the electrification of the East Coast Mainline to ensure adequate clearance for the spaghetti. 

Another one for the files of “if you did that in a model people would think you’d made a mistake.”
And since this post only has one picture, here’s a free one of an IEP Virgin Azuma on test at York.

Having now officially reached middle age, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
