Blackgill - Tyne to Dock Consett in P4

Post by Arpster » Mon Oct 30, 2017 5:19 pm

Hello,

Hope you don't mind me posting this here, but thought it might be of interest to the good people of this forum. Some of you will have seen my dad Eddie Ford's layout 'Blackgill' around the exhibition circuit in recent years. I took advantage of the nice light at Hartlepool show a couple of weekends ago to grab a bit of video footage of the layout, which I've edited together here:

https://vimeo.com/240053963

The locos that feature are, in order of appearance:

67341
69105
63379
69917
92066
90074
63473
68316
68019
62360
63363
92167
63755
plus a few diesels!

Hope you enjoy,

Alistair

Don't know where to start - so refreshing to see a video of trains running without trying to emulate Mallard.

The opening shot had me looking twice to see if it really was a model - superb trackwork, stonework & timberwork et al.

Thank you, gents. Very glad to hear that you enjoyed the video. Happy to post some photos for those of you who haven't seen Blackgill in the flesh.

If you haven't seen it, make the effort to get to its final show. This is one of the finest models on the circuit in recent years.
