An hour? Must be a well broken-in horse by now.

Some situations in life are like dairy cows. When you see 'em you just gotta milk 'em.

A very good Evening everybody, many thanks to Chris (in Prague) for sending & Martin (Port Perran ) for moving it on through Cornwall. It is of course the latest CIWL coach & almost the final part of the 'Star of the West'.

 :hellosign: Good Morning already.
  Following on from my latest photo in "Train's Waiting" excellent Trains Waiting & occasionally moving thread, my own Class 43 which I'm Very happy to say will be a full 8+2 very soon. The Swallow livery really suited the 125s IMO. Just for now 43098 waiting for her next run


       regards Derek.

Many thanks, Derek, for the two films and the photograph.

I agree that the Inter City 'Swallow' livery suited the HST sets very well.

Best wishes.

 :hellosign: & a very good Sunday Evening to all,
     Had a totally superb Saturday with lots of fun at the Hayle MRS Christmas show, this show is only ten minuets walk so a shift change & all is good to go.
    Of course the star of the event was Treharry St Martin which looks even better live, if that`s possible, well done Martin (Port Perran) for your super scenic skills.
      Hope Martin doesn`t object to a short video
http://youtu.be/I_22E5CVEnU
   While chatting like you do Martin mentioned the majic word "Pendelino" so I think this is very apt
http://youtu.be/WuB7rXX5IaY
    The offer is still open if wish to view on the Kato track Martin.
    Right more exciting news is the remaining coaches have arrived for the I/C "125" have arrived but may have to go to the big guy in red,  :veryangry: but will be on layout before the end of the year. Was in such a good mood on Saturday I have purchased off E-Bay the GUV van in Southern Green to complete the "Star of the West- unfortunatly none suitable for sale at the show, again will be running before the month is out.
       :beers:  regards Derek.

Thanks for your kind words Derek.
Yes, it was a great little show on Saturday and one which I enjoyed immensely. Glad you enjoyed Treharry St Martin but it wasnít just me (a big shout aout also to Tim, Steve and Harry who were my partners in crime).
Thanks for that video (wasnít it noisy for a few minutes whilst you were filming?).
And yes, Iíd love to pop  to see you one day. Iíll definitely arrange something early in the New Year.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Good to meet you on Saturday and put a face to the name 🙂
I thoroughly enjoyed the show too and had a great time helping Michael on his layout. There was some fine modelling on show and I came away with lots of ideas/inspiration.
