And, actually, made very recently as Pan (Mr.) Havelka is well-known here in Prague for his swing music concerts.

Indeed Chris, there are a number of his videos on Youtube which are equally entertaining and made to high-standard. I think I've watched most of them dozens of times  :)

With a tip of my trilby to Frankland, a short story of Lord and Lady Trevelver and Waterloo station, as told to Sylvia, at Cant Cove:

What a delightful story Chris, and the clock is something so many of us have kept an eye on so many times as we await a departing train :)

Next time I am at Waterloo your tale will be in my head :)

Special Announcement




Well thereís no putting the news off any longer, it seems apart from some paperwork, Iím moving home within the next four to eight weeks.

The new house will have itís own, proper, dedicated railway room, with enough space for a slightly larger layout than I have now.

Iím very excited, although as you can imagine, also a little sentimental at saying goodbye to Frankland in its current guise.

No promises - but I expect the next rendition of Frankland will include working trams, underground trains, and A/C electrics, alongside third rail.

The house Iím moving to is Edwardian, and completely unmodernised, so much work needs to be done.
This means it may be a year or so before I can start on a new layout.

But that doesnít stop me planning though :)

Iíll be sharing thoughts on the new layout in due course :)

Can Frankland Mk2 be Mk1 with some extension so as to save as much as possible of your excellent work?

I agree with Newportnobby, Frankland has some of the best scratch built buildings I've ever seen ! I'd love to see them incorporated into your next layout....
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !
