Standing by at Brookhampton.

Another picture from the Brookhampton archives. This shows a reserve Dennis F12 covering for one of Kingsdon's appliances which is providing standby cover at Brookhampton.

This Dennis F12 has been indentified as VYA999 which was never allocated to Kingsdon. It was new to Houndstone in 1956 and was transfered to reserve in 1966 and was sold for preservation in 1972.

The Dennis F12 is a modified Corgi Trackside model, the cars are by Classix and Oxford Diecast while the buildings are Hornby Scaledale models.

Nice one George, it certainly looks good re-producing this 1.76th scale diarama model in black&white.

Thank you Pete. I was adjusting the colour of the photo on the computer realised that black and white would help make the picture look archive.

Hi George, yes I've actually found also with some of my old colour pictures which don't really come up well after re-scanning from negatives/slides do actually come up really well by re-producing them in black and white.
