A collection mainly of St. Albans locomotive shed in 1967- a very nice prototype for a model with only 2 roads and water tank on the roof. Despite closing in 1961 it was largely complete and housing a BR type 2 diesel when visited in May 1967, with Tony Dyer. LMS engine sheds vol 2 by Hawkin and Reeve has track plan and more information. Unfortunately Tony Dyer died on 20/11/2016. He was a very kind man, taking under his wing a teenager with a keen interest in the Midland Railway and rolling stock. He was an early innovator for the Model Railway hobby, forming MOPOK with John Senior from Staines MRS, they used preprinted sides on a plastic frame with ABS supplied castings to make accurate models of mainly parcels stock. Later with George Pring their company Kemilway introduced etching to Model Railways. I appear in one Tonys photos.
