I've had said that the picture above, which is an end wall and has ten quoins to the eaves, showed that biggest size of stones in the wall are the same hight at the quoins (roughly). The black and white photo 3/4 view further back shoes much the same. On the picture of his build, he has 10 quoins to the eaves, and the biggie stones are the same hight as the quoins. What's wrong with that? Are we looking at the same pictures?

The straight on one doesn't show the whole wall Will. The gate could be 4 or more feet high. The 3/4 view shows at least 12 quoins but again you can see the bottom of the wall. The model shows 9

in answer To your second question, in not sure!

Here is another picture of the end. However, I don't see a problem with what Dave has done!

For those who know something of the history of my old cars, that is NOT my Anglia van!

Thanks for the vote of confidence Tim.

I like your photograph as it really shows the coarseness and texture of the stone.

The windows, doors.....

Well as the winter modelling season is upon us I moved from the shed at the bottom of the garden to indoors and so have been doing less messy modelling. I decided it was time that the station building needed to progress - so it time for the windows and doors.

The rear. It is interesting that all the station buildings built by William Clarke, the consultant engineer
for the Bristol and North Somerset Rly, had no doors on the rear, only on the platform side.

.... and the chimneys

Postby Dave K » Sun Apr 19, 2015 10:30 am

Just a quick update. I have finally completed the chimneys for the station building. As see the chimneys on Clarke buildings are ornate so you can see they were made in many parts before being assembled. I have started work on the canopy skylight and have placed it to see what it will look like.

The chimneys temporarily fitted and held place with blu tack together with the skylight.
