Old video of King's Cross and a4 Silver Fox in action...

Thanks Darrwest, it is a very interesting film about the post war express. Some lovely interior shots of the buffet and dining cars.

Happy Birthday Steve, by the way. As well as the timetables, did anyone get you another A4 to add to the collection?  ;)

PS - Here's a little something on track building for your next coffee break!

Thank you!  :D

No A4s yesterday I'm afraid. I did get a 4F though (which will be used as a donor for another N2 eventually!). I also got drawings for various GNR and LNER carriages which will be put to good use when I have the time design some etches!

The track film is great! I'm glad I don't have to go through all of that to make up a crossing "v"!  ;D

A video for you of the Silver Jubilee express in the 1930's. The is even a scene shot at Hadley Wood at 1:53!  :claphappy:

Glad you enjoyed it! And thank you for the film clip too. It was also interesting the see the special coaching stock it pulled - looked fantastic.

I found a great article on Wiki about this train from The Engineer September 1937 - attached.

That is a fascinating film, Steve.

It must be one of the first colour films of a British railway scene.

Many thanks for posting the link.

Best wishes.
