While browsing on YouTube, I found some of Peterís videos. @daveg and I went to see him about 3 years ago and I managed to sort out a short on his layout. After we had gone, he made this video. Unfortunately, the next time we went to see him, he had reorganised everything and couldnít run anything. He said from the outset that he wasnít too interested in scenic stuff. This video says it all. So if you are thinking of entering the competition, take some inspiration from Peterís video.

I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Thanks @Malc.

Shame Peter didn't crack on with that plan, it would have been quite interesting.

I remember when he first started. He mentioned his lack of interest in scenic stuff, then did what you see on the vid!

Brilliant chap!

That is not a bad picture to say there is no scenery, it looks like fog has descended on a city.  :thumbsup:

I'm sorry, we don't do 'train sets' here. 'Model railways' only, please. Any further infringements and I shall report you to the moderators...   ;)

The coaches will now be heading off to the last entrant in the competition so if there are any late entries please PM me with your details. Note all entrants pay the £3.45 2nd class signed for postage to pass them on afterwards. Small price to pay for a couple of maroon MK1s emblazoned with a memory of Peter.

Thanks for reposting that video, Malc. I remember getting dizzy the first time I  saw it!  :beers:

Good afternoon all,

Sadly 3 weeks ago today I said farewell to my father for the very last time as we left Colchester General Hospital having removed life support for my father after he sadly suffered a Cardiac Arrest the previous Wednesday.

My father was an inspiration to me and always encouraged my modelling and transport interests and I will sorely miss him, not only because of his encouragement, but as he also took me to many exhibitions and operated alongside me, so many of you will have seen or met him at shows I am sure.

To bring this back round to the competition, I received the Peter Charles Fagg memorial coaches this week in readiness, for my exhibition appearance with Midsummer End this weekend in Blackpool.  Sadly, due to circumstances, I had to pull out of the exhibition as I am sure you will understand, however, I am still appearing with Empress Road Shed and Lakeview and Haveawatch Railway next weekend at Bury St Edmunds exhibition, and the following weekend at the Dapol Collectors Club day.  As such, please come along and have a look at the coaches running on Lakeview, or on display in Empress Road Shed during both events.

It's been sad to have these coaches at such a uniquely ironic time as we arrange and prepare to say our final farewells to my father, Alan Hughes, at his funeral on 25th September, however, I have been up this afternoon running the coaches on Lakeview and Havewatch Railway and also on my home layout "Rhoswiel Way" where Flying Scotsman hauled the Peter Charles Fagg pullman special.



For my entry to the competition, I have chosen a scenic photograph from Lakeview and Havewatch Railway, one of my father's favourite layouts that I've built and exhibited.  Here the coaches form a special hauled by recently steamed Terrier, "Freshwater".



I hope to see a few of you at Bury St Edmunds show, and Dapol collectors club day and wish every the very best of luck with the competition.

Kind Regards

Steven Hughes
AKA Midsummer End.
