Thank you for your reply. My main eras are the early 60s so that I could run steam locos and diesel side by side. And the late 60s/early 70s. So I could use most of my rolling stock in both periods.

Hi McRuss

I really like this layout, I'll just have to get over my diesel phobia!

I can tell that you and your friends enjoy your modeling, keep up the good work

Thank you for your compliment. At the moment I run mainly diesel engines, because on the next operating session the timeperiod is the PreTops era, but I've also got some steam loco. 3F Jinty, 4F Fowler, 14xx, Black Five, Standart 4MT.
And if you like to see it in real. I will attend the Irvine Show 2012 organized by the Killmarnock & District Model Railway Club.

Hello,

sorry for my long absence. But with the Irvine show in January and reduced modelling/internettime it is not easy to get in touch with the forum.
First the Irivine show was great, and it was a pleasure to exhibit the IoS there. Many thanks to Bill, Brian and the other members of the Kilmarnock&District Model Railway Club.

Here are some pictures I made during the trip north and at the exhibition.
