    Branch lines to East Grinstead DT_v3b Route

    After completing the Bluebell railway route I decided my next challenge was to create the Middleton Press ‘Branch lines to East Grinstead’.

    .I was fortunate in discovering the 'National Library of Scotland' web site and the 'explore Georeference maps', which cover the whole of the UK These 25” maps showed all the track layout and combining that with the gragient diagram had no problem in extending the line to Ardingly and Haywards Heath (proposed extension to the Bluebell Railway)

    I didn’t have the luxury of gradient diagrams for the line from Three Bridges to Tunbridge Wells West, but fortunately managed to acquired three volumes of J.T.Howard Turner 'The London, Brighton & south coast railway' though it wasn’t as convenient and more time consuming I was able to extract line gradient information. Combing this with the above 25” maps meant I could made a reasonably accurate recreation of the line .

    Provision was made for double track throughout, though only single track was laid between Ashurst junction to Three Bridges and from Horstead Keynes to Culvert Junction (Originally Barcombe Junction). I decided early on to have double track where possible as I find it slightly more interesting when encountering oncoming trains in the game. With the amount or development along this route since its closer I'm sure a double track would have been require, hay ho.

    I have reinstated all the goods yards even those at Lewes, East Grinstesd,Royal Tunbridge Wells West, Oxted plus the upper level platforms at East Grinstead at the expense of the now supermarkets that now occupy these sites. All the goods yards along this route are as shown on the 1914 Os 25", apart from those on the original Bluebell line.

    There has been talk about reopening some of the lines and from walking most of them it looks possible, even into Lewes via a long abandoned railway at Hamsey which could join into the existing Keymer Branch, however East Grinstead east to Brockhurst and Grange road no way. Even connecting to Three Bridges would be a problem.


    The route goes from Godstone tunnel (M25) and Oxted in the north, south to Lewes, then west to Haywards Heath, in the west from Three Bridges to Royal Tunbridge Wells West in the east, with the north south cross line west of Groombridge between Ashurst and Eridge stations (see thumbnail).


    There are some track only stretches from Three Bridges west to Crawley and south to Haywards Heath. A road shows the Branch line from Eridge to Barcombe Mills, (possible next project) but this isn't included in the Branch lines to East Grinstead and one has to stop somewhere doesn't one?

    The BathTemp track rules have been replaced with the Settle to Carlisle track rules.

    The line is not electrified

    After months of development, we are nearly there with our forthcoming Class 86 Enhancement Pack.

    One of the most striking features is a newly modelled front, roof & pantograph (Stone Faiveley AMBR & Brecknell Willis variants). Transforming the look of this locomotive and making it almost unrecognizable from the old.

    This new modelling has also allowed us to represent the different variations of jumper cables, as well as other small details, but more on that soon.

    Rest assured, this pack will certainly be worth the wait. Stay tuned!

    Some encouragement I leave you from Psalm 91 (The message translation)

    Psalm 91 The Message (MSG)

    91 1-13

    You who sit down in the High God’s presence,

    spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow,

    Say this: “God, you’re my refuge.

    I trust in you and I’m safe!”

    That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps,

    shields you from deadly hazards.

    His huge outstretched arms protect you—

    under them you’re perfectly safe;

    his arms fend off all harm.

    Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night,

    not flying arrows in the day,

    Not disease that prowls through the darkness,

    not disaster that erupts at high noon.

    Even though others succumb all around,

    drop like flies right and left,

    no harm will even graze you.

    You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance,

    watch the wicked turn into corpses.

    Yes, because God’s your refuge,

    the High God your very own home,

    Evil can’t get close to you,

    harm can’t get through the door.

    He ordered his angels

    to guard you wherever you go.

    If you stumble, they’ll catch you;

    their job is to keep you from falling.

    You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes,

    and kick young lions and serpents from the path.

    14-16

    “If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God,

    “I’ll get you out of any trouble.

    I’ll give you the best of care

    if you’ll only get to know and trust me.

    Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times;

    I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party.

    I’ll give you a long life,

    give you a long drink of salvation!”

    It seems to be getting a lot of love from the community
