That is some exceptionally fine work Paul.

Can you tell us a bit more about it please, such as why you choose to draw this location and how you went about it etc

Thanks

David

Thank you David.

I've been researching the Charnwood Forest Railway for many years - The line ran from Charnwood Forest Junction near Coalville to Loughborough Derby Road in NW Leicestershire - however there are no known photo's of the halts on the line at Thringstone, Grace Dieu or Snells Nook. I've been given a photograph of the bridge (not shown ) and LNWR plans of the site. I've read that the halts used a standard Webb hut and the dimensions are known for each halt. This particular hut is 24ft x 8ft and is made up with three 8ft units.
I combined this information with an OS Map and various publications with drawings of standard Webb huts. I also studied lots of photo's of these huts.

So intrigued what it might have looked like I decided to build a CAD model using Sketchup - the scene was then processed in Epic's Unreal Engine 4. The goods news is that another LNWRS member is going to build an 'O' gauge model of it and I have provided with plans based on this CAD model.

Here are some more views..

Still quite a bit of work to be done to finish the model.

Cheers
Paul
