 Welcome to Motley Junction
Description
90 007 Crown Point. What might have been. I liked the Anglia Railways livery.
Description
October 2014. Overhead wires added to Platform 2 of Motley Pafos. The wires are the old Tri-ang system that was reintroduced for a short time in the 1990’s when Hornby changed production to China. For Motley it looks fine and is robust! If I knock it doesn't break! The loco is a Lima model painted up and number E1. The advertising was added in April 14. We bought a cloth from Pathos Market and the pictures were the wrapping paper. Ideal advertising boards.
Lima Bo electric. Picked up for £5.00 and re liveried. Now on Motley Cyprus layout.
Description
 A German style diesel shape bought in Jumbo’s in Pathos Cyprus made by Dickie Toys of Germany as a play toy train set. The body sits on an older Hornby Bo-Bo HST chassis and I have added a pantograph so it passes for an electric loco that I need on the Cyprus layout as one platform now has an over-head wired. (See photo above). The loco also has a diesel engine for the “last mile”.
Description
This is a very old Tri-ang electric on a Nellie chassis. Pulls current from the rail, not the over-head. It is pictured on Motley Terminal. The coaches came from a Cypriot toy train set. They had to be re-wheeled and painted.
Description
Tri-ang produced a Bo over-head electric for the European market. This is it. It runs on Motley Terminal.
Picked this up at a Toy Fair. Sits on a Hornby Class 47 motor bogie. Used on Motley Terminal..
Description
A bit blurry. Hornby Class 86 in Freightliner. Transfers and numbers are from Fox Transfers.
Description
I know, it looks fictitious! It is based on a Swiss E3/3 class tank loco. It existed in WWII as there was a shortage of coal. At the Cambridge 31A 2014 Exhibition a fellow exhibitor emailed me more photos and I have yet to add the detail. The loco is used on Motley Terminal and may go to Cyprus in March 2015 as a “guest loco”.

Description
Kleinbahn on the Conifer Railway. Had a trip to Austria and heritage traction was allowed to run on their system. I bought a few examples. The lack of over-head lines does not seem to distract from the photo..
Description
As the conifers on the Conifer Railway matured I had some close encounters of the wood-kind!

Description
I picked up an old Tri-ang 2-car EMU, slightly damaged, for £17.50 at a recent Toy Fair. I then had a ‘what if’, moment. What if in 1948 BR decided all suburban stock should be crimson? So I painted the cheap EMU brown to match the old Tri-ang Mk1 non-corridor coaches so that I can run a 3 or 4 coach set. It sits by the SR green version.
Description
Silver Fox Class 89 before it was named..
Description
Spare HST cars in 2019? Covert one to 3rd Rail and give it a go! Old Tri-ang motor bogie; hence  the screw tip sticking out of the roof.
Description
Over-head version of an HST. Could do with some more detail to look more convincing.
