Don't take the colours in this old slide of mine as gospel, but pay attention to the weathering. They always seemed to ber particularly dirty little locos.

Re: Facia colours?

The Dutton Bay Tramway used Mission Brown, with brown curtains. We thought the brown fitted better with the colour of the landscape than green, and black, which is also a commonly used colour seemed to harsh. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4357/23574179918_f6fee25847_b.jpg DSCF3439 by duttonbay , on...

Doesn't work for me:

The webpage at http://www.pjv101.net/index.htm might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

Re: Crane Spacing from Track

True, but like Mark, I believe that the VR would have specified the distance for each type of crane.

Re: Whitfield Station Diagram

Hopefully you might be able to find a copy of that book. I am trying various sources for the drawings you want - I might have the loco shed. The goods shed might be a standard design (although which one?) but the water tank is not (to my knowledge) a standard design. I've never seen a drawing of one...

Re: Whitfield Station Diagram

Speed Limit 20 was essentially a compilation of Ted Downs' articles in ARHS Bulletin. Interestingly, the maps were redrawn for the book, but I prefer Ted's original versions. There is a suggestion that at Whitfield there was a gap between 1 and 2 road. I haven't verified by looking at any photos, bu...
