Very nice Alan and welcome to the forum. I take it that that is the depot near the church.

Yes that's right EWW, it is St Clemants Church that is close to the site of the depot. My model is depicting the depot as it was just after the second world war. Although this can extend some twenty years or so.

I put the newish houses onto the elecricity surply that stands there now.
I see one of the WW2 pill boxes in the foreground but cannot remember it
from my years of working in that area. I must have seen it though.

Great stuff Alan, very nice. When I worked the Upwell/Outwell area for
the EEB if I could not find an address I would call in that post office to
find out where it was. Your scene looks so real its uncanny.

Just to let readers of the forum know, I shall be bringing my model railway of Outwell Village to Wisbech for the 130th anniversary of the opening of the Wisbech & Upwell Tramway. It will be on display at the Wisbech Institute on the weekend of the 14th & 15th September 2013. So if you wish to see how the depot looked all those years ago, come and have a look.

Bad news i'am afraid, due to some of the other models which were to attend the celebration being unable now to do so. The organisers of the event have had to take the difficult decision and cancel that part of the celebration. So unfortunatly my model of Outwell Village will not be making the trip down.
