I agree completely, Andrew.  When I don't have time (or can't be bothered!) to do any work on the layout, I still try to sit and watch a few trains run past.  Simply enjoying a model railway.

I have a terrible time fighting with myself not to allow things to accumulate on top of the layout, because a model railway that needs to be cleared before trains can operate is one that won't get played with.

My worst modelling experiences have all been when I was attempting to do something when not in the mood.

All best wishes.

Thanks for the kinds words, I know my love of railways hasn't diminished, so the hope is there.... just the love of my railway for now  :-[

One of the fun 1:1 railway excursions was a day trip to Carlisle to the Kingmoor depot of DRS to attend their open day in late July.. accompanied by some members of the Perth Model Railway Club, was a great day out.

Large fleet of loco's on display mainly 66's & 68's, but a few 37's, 47's and 57's








Thanks for looking - Andrew

Good stuff Andrew

I'd have to say that the class 37 is the best looking of all UK diesels IMO.

I still find it fascinating that there are a) still class 37s about and b) they're running in "proper" liveries.

"Large Logo" suits them best, IMHO.

... lastly, on the day trip to Carlisle .. ( I am really spinning this out as I have so little by way of updates on the layout!)

got back to the station for 3pm, sad in the knowledge that "Tornado" was due to pass through 30 mins after our train north departed ... only to see a long rake of lined BR maroon coaches & pullmans sitting at one of the platforms .... a long walk down the opposite platform revealed what was at its head!






That was a lovely end to the day, 2 of our companions were staying in Carlisle for the night, so they forwarded on some footage of "Tornado" passing through, so all was not lost

I do have a video to post next that was inspired by this visit to Carlise, so this thread should almost get back on track soon   :-[

Back in Perthshire, there was excitment around rumours of a special visitor from Kingmoor depot.  On a more mundane level, some shrubbery has appeared at the end of the houses in Muthill



As promised, a new classs 37 has appeared, inspired by the depot visit, 37261 resplendennt in DRS livery.... I didn't buy it at the depot, there were a lot of trade stands + DRS official merchandise stand, that included a few branded N Gauge &   this one was actually bought on the train home... and is a little bit special  :)   I also managed to finally get the Mk2a FK from the Cheltenham models stand....after waiting 18 months on Hattons.... so that completes my Edinburgh-Glasgow Class 27 Push Pull set as well   :beers:

Nice sound out of my favourite UK diesel - very good Andrew. A few are not impressed with N scale sound on this forum I know, but I like it even though it comes with the disadvantage for me of generally requiring DCC operation.

I remember these trains, Andrew.  The 'fasts' stopped at the High and the 'slows' (on the half-hour?) went round by Grahamston and served the other E&G stations.  I think the fasts were timetabled for 42mins.  Still some semaphore signalling but the Edinburgh end was quieter than now.

However, the main thing I remember is the extraordinary performance of the BRCW diesels.  I sometimes wondered if they would self-destruct!  After being thrashed up, they would sit at the Waverley, normally on Platform 14, burbling and rattling until the whistle blew and then they would be thrashed back down to GQS.  All day! 

Thank you vey much for the super pictures of No. 6201.  I have not seen this locomotive yet and I intend to make every effort to do so.  Hopefully, soon!  She looks absolutely wonderful in her crimson lake livery.

Thanks again.

With best wishes.

John

A wonderful set of pictures!  :beers:
