Take your mind back to 1963. May 1963 to be precise. Winston Churchill announced his retirement from politics. Dr No premiered in the USA. The Rolling Stones signed their first recording contract.
More importantly, Railway Modeller published a plan of Weymouth Harbour Masters office.
(Many) Years later, I spotted this in an old issue and decided to build the model for Melbridge Dock.
It's a popular and well-recognised feature on the layout. Lots of exhibition visitors have commented that they too have the plan squirreled away for future use.
On Monday, I visited the Milton Keynes MRC and on their layout Milton Quays, there is the very same building.
Nice, but a Beetle out the front (A 2-door sports car featured in the prototype photo that accompanied the article and plan) looks so much classier than the Vauxhall(?) they have used. Well, I think it does anyway.
