I seem to remember not that long ago paying for something on with PayPal and it had the option to add a donation to a charity while paying, so they can't be that anti-charity....

Having won three prizes in the raffle, I thought it was time for a post. Firstly, thank you again to the organisers (you know who you are)- especially Pengy for the brilliant packaging and timing (it arrived the day after I got back from New Zealand).

'It' being the package containing a Dapol LNER B1, so a big thank you to Dapol for donating such a brilliant model (but more of that anon)

Thanks to to the NGS, I greatly anticipate the forthcoming publications.

Thanks also to Trackside Signs. I haven't used my voucher as yet, but rest assured I will.

Ok... I gingerly removed the B1 from the box this arvo and gave it a short run on my Beal & Castle Eden. Beautiful! Purrs along like a charm. Of course I model BR in the 50's and 60's, and was wondering what I was going to put behind it, when I remembered I had some very early Farish teak coaches! Here's the result:
1) Crossing Troutbeck Bridge
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
2) Passing the timberyard at Castle Eden
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
3) Approaching Troutbeck
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
4) Crossing the bridge over Troutbeck
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
5) And on into the tunnel under Low Knott
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Thanks again, everyone from a very happy ex-pat!

Thanks George!  Wonderful to see your prize in use.

That B1 looks just like a model my dad had in 00, and I'd certainly choose it if I were to model steam.

Actually I've been wondering how to fit the B1 into my scheme of things, but, as is often said on this forum, "it's my layout and I'll run what I want." It's such lovely model and a great runner that it is most definitely staying! But they say there's a prototype for everything.... here's a poster on the wall of my garage above the layout, obviously advertising Hornby Railways.

It shows an apple green Flying Scotsman hauling blue & grey stock through what appears to be Copenhagen Fields out of Kings Cross. Judging by the colour of the coaches and the smoke rising from the chimney in the background, I'd guess the date to be the late 70's - early 80's. Maybe there are forum members out there with details?

The second photo shows the poster in context on the garage wall. The one of the loco at bottom right has "Please don't let me go" painted on the boiler door!

I would say that the photo of Flying Scotsman was taken in the 70's as i have a DVD with Scotsman in the 70's
in the same condition I.E double tender and no smoke deflectors

but i stand to be corrected  :uneasy:

regarding the picture bottom right with "Do not let me go" and a sad face, it is one of my favorite pictures at the end of mainline steam

IIRC it is one of Rose Grove's 8F's  i would love to replicate this on my 8F but i can't write that small  :'(

Thanks for that, Dave! What a great idea! I love cameos and 'quirks' on model railways, and that would be a great talking point! I agree that painting it on might be a bit hard, but in these days of computers and 3D printing, etc., I'm sure there would be some high-tech way of recreating it...hint hint to technoforum members....

No good asking me how though... I'm so uncool I don't know what IIRC means!!  ???

Thanks, George
