Thanks to John (of Poppingham) and Douglas at Wickness Models, my Union Mills BR Black Early Crest "Dukedog" has been DCC fitted and, as always with UM locos., runs very well indeed.

As described, previously, it will become 9023 (of 82C Swindon), as loaned in March 1954 for pilot duties over the South Devon banks between Plymouth North Road and Newton Abbot. (Two years before my normal 1956 'cutoff year' but it was very difficult to resist!) It will look good, preserved, running with BR Crimson & Cream coaches o Summer season specials trains. I hope, this July.

Thank you for this, Chris.  I'm glad she arrived safely at Wickness Models.

She was a very welcome visitor to Poppingham for her first steam trials.  I look forward to seeing her on Cant Cove in due course.

That looks a very dead diesel in the film (behind the computer mouse)!

All the very best.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

Many thanks, again, John, for all your help. The diesel loco. lying on its side, looks like a Loma model of a German DB loco. produced in a BR Green livery. (Probably for DCC nothing for someone else.) It was very good to see the "Dukedog" 'running in' at Poppingham.
