A blog about making model trains, little boats and both real and model automobiles. Typed by someone with painty hands, oil under his fingernails and the smell of solder in his nostrils.

Leamington big and small
As I was taking a train trip on Friday, I couldn't resist snapping shots to try and match the real station with Pete's from yesterdays photos.
So, from the main entrance,
pity about the taxis.
And now from the slope you drive down into the car park.
Both show just how good the model is, and also that I need to kneel down when taking the real photos as my camera was shooting (on the model) about 2 scale feet off the floor. Taking photos is much harder in the real world as you have to dodge cars and morons "hooning" about on a stupid bicycle.
Thanks to its listed status and careful restoration, the real building has changed little in these views since the 1950s when the model is set.
