Newcastle Central Station, a long shot...

Postby John Donnelly » Tue Aug 14, 2012 11:07 pm

This is very much a long shot...

The picture below is a crop of a photo taken from the Castle Keep towards the east end of Newcastle Central Station. I'm planning on modelling the east end of the station (what were platforms 1-7 before they became a car park) and I'm starting on the drawings for the buildings at the bottom right which have now been demolished.

Image

I'm estimating dimensions based on counting bricks but the one thing I'm missing is a photo of the wall at the far end of the building which, of course, you can't see in this shot nor can I find a pic showing it at all (I have actually found one but it's very old and the wall is completely in shadow so nothing can be made out). If need be, I'll take a guess and probably just do it as a flat wall but if a photo does exist, it would be extremely useful...

I would suggest RMWEB, someone on there may be able to help.

I have had answers to some really obscure questions, its a great utility

It is sometimes worth scanning an image and playing around with it in Photoshop or similar - it is quite surprising sometimes what you can get out of shady areas that way - though it does depend to some extent on the quality of the original.

Unfortunately, the one image I have is just completely black in that area...
