Excellent pictures there Zeffer!

It was received earlier this week, as was my Medite 66 from the raffle, so seemed appropriate that it should delivery the coach to Longford Town ready for the tour.

Thanks for the pictures.  Glad to see the 66 is in use.  :)  I like what you've done for the entrances on the Peco sheds.

Thanks guys, the layout is not mine but a non-forum member's as mine is still not as a stage to run anything on. Excuse the selotape holding the platform together but it was too tight for stock to get into the platform without bashing otherwise.

The Peco shed was build and modified by Steven (bees) as this was his layout before he sold it to Andrew. It is usually now a home for the cat unless I go round to "play trains" with him.

Glad the coach made it to you Chris. Some excellent shots you have taken. Liek NPN I too like that Thomas has made an appearance.

Regards, Tony

The NGF special arrived at Salisbury South behind a class 71 loco, the consist being as follows:
> a former test coach, still full of gagetry of interest to railfans
> a pullman bar car, NGFers like alcohol in comfort
> la piece de resistance: the NGF tour coach
> a pullman parlour car, NGFers like their comfort
> a boring old Mk1 brake composite. BR insisted on this for "technical reasons".




After making a technical stop at platform 5, she proceeded down the single track branch to Salisbury City. Several EMUs were demoted to the little used platform 3 while the special sat in platform 1, the only one with run-round facilities.





It was then that it was realised the NGFers had drunk the on-board bar dry, and lost interest in the railway gadgetry in the test car. The organisers in their wisdom had considered this possibility, and two beer wagons were rushed down the branch behind a 73, and coupled up in place of the test car, and plumbed-in directly to the bar.



In order to continue its journey west, the new consist then returned to South. An EMU was occupying platform 4 (my fault, sorry!), so it went in to platform 5 and had to shunt to platform 4 where a Warship was attached for the journey to Exeter.









Finally the train was disassembled in the Exeter/Westbury fiddle yard, and the carriage dumped unceremoniously in the DMU stabling point.

Two rails good. Three better.
