About this deal

I did this because as there are so many large panes, if I had stuck the glazing on the inside, it would have shown up but with hindsight, I should have made the main sub-structure from clear plastikard and used overlays throughout. For some reason, this photo has always fascinated me although I never had any intention of attempting to model the place. Pupils learn about the significance of both world wars and the importance of the League of Nations in attempting to maintain peace between the wars. Left out are the junction to the Rochdale line (assumed to be off-stage and still present, even though the period modelled is after the line closed), the engine shed and most of the sidings in the goods yard.

When I scrapped my old layout and began the planning for this, it's replacement, I knew that it would be quite a long project but it is only recently that it has hit home just how long it will take and how much effort. Her great-great uncle John Cook compiled some of the earliest entries into the slideshow repetoire, back in the 1890s.

Limited space has also encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone (although my comfort zone is a ponderous place at the moment as I attempt a whole wealth of modelling areas that I would not have even considered a few months ago). The second attempt, in 1985, to recognise along comprehensive lines and amalgamate the school with one of its neighbouring secondary modern schools came too late.

BRGS is situated on a hillside overlooking the Rossendale Valley in the village of Waterfoot, between Rawtenstall and Bacup. Slightly out of the town centre, buildings such as Fearns Hall, which dates back to 1696, and Stubbylee Hall, situated in the towns beautiful Stubbylee Park, from the 18 th Century add to the historical interest of our quaint little mill town. We will make comparisons between the different monarchs and ask questions about power and how it is exercised as well as how control works in government. years later and after the untimely demise of my previous layout due to me stupidly using sundeala, and I decided to have a go at modelling a representation of Bacup. Not the sort of place you would want to live really, but absolutely the sort of place you (well, I) would like to model.In Year 8, pupils gain a thematic understanding of the development of Britain through the lens of religion, state, industry, empire and society during the Early Modern Era and the Modern Era.

This looks like a gem in the making, have often looked at the same page in the NorthWest book myself and thought what a good model Baccup would make. This is how I had originally envisioned it but I am now thinking that the four houses with the bay windows look out of place in the row (all other houses are of a similar design, e. The track plan (everyone loves a track plan) is not an exact copy of Bacup, but uses the basic layout of the station. Residents said there was a large police presence in the area and an air ambulance was spotted making its way to the scene.The LMS closed the line from Rochdale in June 1947, shortly before the station passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. Now this presents a couple of problems, the main one being the space available for the sidings as they are on the inside of the layout where the lines curve towards the fiddle yard. All buildings have been scratch-built or will be (a few placeholders in use at the moment) and are based on real buildings either in or near Bacup. I also started to add rudimentary column bases to the station canopy and affixed it (and the platform buildings) to the platform.

You would not believe how tedious it was sticking the 500 plus tiny strips of Microstrip onto the glazing of the canopy roof, followed by a load more for the drainage channels on the non-glazed parts.This covers the Weimar Republic, Hitler’s rise to power, Nazi control and dictatorship, life in Nazi Germany.
