Royal New Zealand Navy
WATCH II Farewell old friend. HMNZS Endeavour provided 30 years of faithful service to the Navy. But when she became no longer compliant, responsible recycling was the only option for her disposal. Following an exhaustive and detailed tender process to ensure a sustainable, ethical and environmentally compliant recycling, Endeavour sailed for India in April this year.

Under the direct supervision of the NZ Defence Force, a remarkable 98.8% of the ship was either reused (60%) or recycled. The reuse of steel saved 1.5million KWHs of electricity and prevented 250,000m3 of CO2 emission.

55 years ago today, on 14 September 1963, the last train ran on the twelve-mile branch line from Brent to Kingsbridge. The line had finally opened on 19 December 1893 thanks to the intervention of Sir Massey Lopes who had invested heavily into the Great Western Railway and had eventually been made a director.

The line had originally been proposed as far back as 1854 when the people of Kingsbridge felt that the relatively new South Devon Railway had passed them by. Some track was laid in 1864 but was then abandoned. Lack of funds brought about several interruptions in the project but money was found following an 1888 New Lines Act of Parliament. The line which was originally planned to reach Salcombe, but never did, became known locally as the ‘Primrose Line’ and it was usually worked by 45XX and 55XX tanks before DMUs took over for the final years.

This photograph by Trevor Owen shows 2-6-2T No 5533 leaving Gara Brdge station on the way to Kingsbridge on 16 June 1958. The photograph was published in the Summer 2018 edition of Great Western Echo, so if you are fortunate enough to be a member of the Great Western Society you will already have seen it.

A scheme to preserve the line after closure was put forward by T W E Roche. However, this came to nothing when British Railways sent in contractors with indecent haste to dismantle the railway after closure.

For the latest commission, Streetscene Models has strayed into the the world of Gauge 1 (10mm:foot) with a nice row of terrace backs, complete with rear yards, coal stores, toilets and washouses. Three of the toilets and one washouse are detailed, including toilet rolls (its a posh terrace!) and newspapers, together with real swinging loo chains. The washouse is similarily treated with a boiler, posser, wash tongues and the inevitable box of washing powder. Everything you see is hand made. Although this is based on my popular O gauge version, the increase in size (65cm wide x 25cm deep) means that behind the scenes there is a lot more bracing and strengthening. Once again, this is a bespoke model and it can be changed in size / style to suit the customers exact needs. ... See MoreSee Less
