Thanks for the latest video, Di. The 57XX looks well at home with its BR Lined Maroon B Set.

I have finally completed my rake of Maroon collets so I thought I would have a BR.WR steam day on Snoozebury.

That's a very impressive collection of Colletts, Di. I have a few but am waiting for the Hawksworth design coaches to come out in BR Lined Maroon as they lasted longer in BR service.

I have made up the Modelux Pylon kit, it goes together well and you end up with 3 pylons each taking about 45 mins to build, I have not strung the cables yet as I am not sure that the current position is where they will end up.

They look great, Di.
Personally I'd site them at the far side of the rails so that, once you've strung the cables, if you have a derailment you won't have to thread your hand through cables to get to the tracks (and we can't have you being electrocuted, can we? ;))

They do look very real and I agree with Mick re positioning.

Don't want to read you've got all tangled up and sparking!

So impressed, I have just looked at the Modelux website and ordered 2 plus a Gasometer.

I have tried to send the link for snoozebury to the Modelux owner Toby but it doesn't seem to have worked...

That lead me to give my early crest ND-013 number 4570 a run round the layout but I'd forgotten it runs fine going forwards but when reversing in the same direction on the same track the rear pony truck likes to derail :doh:
The model itself looks to be a bit 'scrunched up' with the driving wheels very close to each other :hmmm:
