Little one driving Little Aller. Yes that is a limited edition and much sought after Western Enterprise in desert sand he is driving. What could possibly go wrong?

Brilliant, Chris!

Thank you very much for these photographs.  This is one of my favourite layouts.

The auto train at Ridgacre. While the Farish one is much more expensive I think they both provide good value for money bearing in mind the different levels of detail.

Thirded! Many thanks for these, Chris. It's such a great little layout. So much to admire yet never crowded. I do like all the railcars, plus the autocoaches and the BR Lined Green 64xx. The Ivatt 2-6-0 is a very nice model, too, but my favourite livery for them is WR BR Lined Green. Am I imagining things, I thought you had 46521 in this livery, also?

For Chris in Prague. 6521 must be on a special working as it is very unusual to see MK2 corridor stock on the Ridgacre branch.





Leaving Spring Hill



Another lined green loco. The 2MT has become the usual loco for this branch because I like them and the pick ups on the tender wheels as well as the drivers make for more reliable shunting.



6521 has the right away from World's End

The size of this layout 44" by 27" was dictated by the size of the boot if the Renault Mégane cabriolet. This was a nice car but I sold it before the layout was finished . The run round at Ridgacre was designed to be long enough to cope with two Farish mk1s. It is rather tight.



Very tight




6521 ready for the return working.

Thanks for these latest pictures.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
