Thanks for the update and the excellent photos., Brian. Good to see the stock arrived safely. The autocoach can be hauled by a non-pull and push fitted loco. (as was, sometimes, done).

I will check my old Graham Farish GWR livery corridor and non-corridor coaches and take a photo. of them so a special train can run 'through' this summer. However, most of my GWR livery locos. are away for DCC-fitting then renumbering and detailing. At present, I only have a 45xx and my "Manor", here in GWR livery, preserved by the GWS (Bodmin).

So the WR connection is via Frome and the SR one via Templecombe?

Yes to the connections. It's easier for this befuddled mind to remember. :doh:

Thanks, Brian. Duly noted.

I've started on some scenery.I was fed up of looking at plywood and insulation board.


An overall view. The glue is still wet so it looks a bit shiny. I don't like the dark rock face behind the train. I'll redo that. If you look carefully there are two train spotters sitting on the dark rock above the first coach.
